Friendly guy, took us where we wanted to go. I recommend it! It’s a nice area; after the hike you can chill and have lunch nearby.

We visited the Ourika falls with Abdelatif and had a great time. He was very friendly and being from the local village gave us a great insight into life in the Ourika valley. Abdelatif made sure everyone was safe and comfortable on the hike and was great with a young boy who was also on our tour. Would definitely recommend.

We took a day trip Atlas Mountains where Abdelatif was our guide to the Waterfalls and back.

Abdelatif wad very conscientious and took great care to make sure we all got up and back safely. He also provided good information about the local area.

Thanks for a great time!

One of the things that I am always worried about is when I am traveling with my eight year old daughter will the trek be hard. Soon as we meet our guide he was so friendly and took my daughter hand and made sure that she was ok and safe. Some of the paths are hard and if you have asthma then you need to take your inhaler as one person had to hold back. Also make sure you have walking shoes. It’s not bad but it helps when walking around. The trekking was taken slowly so that you can stop and see things, photos, plants, trees and also about the local Berber people. We loved the trekking am the to see the water falls. We always struggle to get family pictures but they really know how to capture good photos. Then on the way back near the river we had mint tea and my daughter had fresh orange juice. Beautiful touch at the end.

In November of 2017 I met Abdelatif Banaji in Sitti Fatima in the Ourika Valley of Morocco. He was tasked, as our local tour guide that morning, to provide our group of six with a hike and tour of the waterfalls in Sitti Fatima. Our group consisted of native English speakers that did not speak Arabic or French, which was no problem for Abdelatif as he was able to easily and effectively communicate with our group. The people in our group ranged from their late 20’s to 60’s in age, and Abdelatif was quick to assist each and every person on the hike as needed. Additionally, Abdelatif was quite affable and eager to take photos for the group.
As we returned from our hike and made some purchases with local vendors on the route, Abdelatif was keen to carry our purchases down the mountain for us. After our hike, Abdelatif made Moroccan tea for group and engaged in genial conversation with our group.
Of the multiple tour guides we experienced during our trip to Morocco we found Abdelatif Banaji to be the among the most courteous, professional, and easily the most likeable. I hope to return to Morocco in the future and do an extended tour with Abdelatif Banaji.
