Guide - Under Moroccan Sun

Under Moroccan Sun was founded by Hassan El Amrani, a native Berber from the Sahara Desert of Morocco. Making both the United States and Morocco his home, Hassan has a clear understanding of what travelers expect. His company’s specialty is Morocco, which allows them to focus on the relationship they build with their travelers after helping them dive into the sights, scents, and secrets of this exotic kingdom. Over the years, Under Moroccan Sun Tours has passionately served travelers from all over the world and has grown to include professional, licensed, multilingual guides and drivers who will help you navigate the exotic kingdom of Morocco at your own pace. Their extensive experience and the unique cultural perspective of Moroccan natives will ensure that your voyage through Morocco will be safe, stimulating, and unforgettable.

Great Value! – Under Morrocan Sun did our tours in Marrakech and Casablanca as well as our transfer from Marrakech to Casablanca. Booking online was easy and hassle free. Hassan responded promptly to our questions/requests. He provided a formal itinerary with the pricing. Once agreed, he sent us a secure link to process payment. Hassan sent us an email with the driver/guide's name, phone number and pick up time the day before our first tour. He also followed up with another email to make sure we were satisfied with the tour, guide, etc. Guides were professional and knowledgeable. Ismael, our driver was outstanding. He was nicely dressed, friendly and shared lots of information about places and traditions. He was careful and drove safely. The vehicle was in good working condition. Overall a great experience. Highly recommended Under Morrocan Sun.

An easy way to travel the country – We planned to spend a month in Morocco and decided to hire a guide after reading the recommendations from Trip Advisor and Lonely Planet. I contacted 4 or 5 companies listed on TA and settled on Under the Moroccan Sun because they were responsive and in our price range. A driver and a guide met us at the airport and stayed with us the entire time we were on the road. They drove us from town to town, carried our luggage, stopped whenever we wanted, taught us key Arabic words, and were very kind and generous in explaining their culture and history. They hired a local guide in each town. They made traveling around the country very easy and ensured we wouldn't run into any major problems. They had our back.
