Hello dear travelers,
My name is Hakim ALIBOUCHE, your local Travel Specialist in Morocco and your future “Dream Tour” designer.
My parents are originally from Midelt, one of the smallest towns in the Middle Atlas, known by the production of apple. I am living in Agadir, the city where I was born and grew up too, which is located on the Atlantic Ocean. With its large beaches, Agadir is considered as one of the main coastal cities in Morocco, especially for the Surfers.
Travelling is an art, it’s a way of life but most of all, it’s an achievement for every single traveler. My duty here is to assist you before, during & after your visit to my beautiful country. I will be very happy to share every single information about Morocco and of course help you design & tailor made your trip to make it "memorable".
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I am organizing tailor made tours around Morocco. The main activities are related to:
* History & Culture
* Trekking & Adventure
* Beach & Relaxation
* Sustainable Tourism "
How did you get involved in travel?
"Tourism was always one of the sectors that attract my attention a long time ago. As a first step, after my baccalaureate, I decided to involve my English skills and there was no better choice than applying to the English Studies department at the university where I had the chance to get a Bachelor's degree in Literature. Just by earning the diploma, I applied to a Specialized Institute where I decided to study Travel Agencies and Tourisme before I applied to the Higher Institute of Tourism in Tangier where I got my professional Bachelor's Degree in Hospitality & Tourism Marketing. Now, with over 4 years of experience in this field of Tourism, I could already say that it influenced me in both my personal and professional life."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"One of the experiences I'll never forget is the 2 days trekking activity I participated in in 2018 through the High Atlas Mountain and especially on its second day where I reached the Sommet. It was such a great adventure, standing at the top of the mountain near the sky and the cloud. Additionally, the night at the gite with the locals was also remarkable in my life. I'm definitely sure that I'll do this activity twice & trice in the nearest future."

Recent trip reviews for Hakim
10 days in Morrocco · Morocco - May 5 - May 14, 2022
The trip was well designed with Hakim's assistance and our driver Mohammad was superb. We enjoyed the modern and clean city of Rabat, the blue city of Chefchaouen, the Roman ruins of Volubilis, the Imperial city of Meknes and the uniqueness of Marrakech.
Wonderful Morocco Trip! · Morocco - May 5 - May 14, 2022
I had a wonderful trip to Morocco with my mom and dad. Arranging the trip was easy and painless, and Hakim listened thoughtfully to our needs and special requests. Our driver, Mohamad, was wonderful! He was a great guide and lovely company for our drive from Rabat to Chefchaouen, Fez, Meknes, and Marrakech. Mohamad provided helpful recommendations and was very conscientious of our needs during the trip. Overall, I would definitely recommend! read more
Our driver, Mohammed was amazing. · Morocco - Apr 16 - Apr 23, 2022
Our driver, Mohammed was amazing. He was patient, friendly, tireless and a great driver. Mohammed was always willing to help us with luggage, open doors and making sure we had access to restroom facilities. I don't think our trip would have been as good with another person. So happy he was chosen for us.
All of the guides we had during the trip were wonderful. They were very well informed about the areas we visited. They took in to account our health needs and paced the tours to... read more

I'd like to add some notes to my travel partner's review of our trip to Morocco. I echo her sentiments about how perfectly Hakim, as a representative of kimkim, handled our trip. Which wasn't easy, given the number of delays and changes due to Covid. Also, I agree whole-heartedly that our driver Mohamed (last name to be supplied by Hakim!) really made the trip what it was: he was well-informed, articulate, funny, attentive, and always willing to share his thoughts on culture, politics,... read more
See Morocco with kimkim · Morocco - Mar 20 - Apr 5, 2022
Kimkim created and executed a Moroccan trip for my travel partner and I that was unforgettable. We first planned the trip in 2019 for March 2020 travel. COVID changed all that but kimkim, Hakim in particular, stuck with us for the next 3 years as we rescheduled several times only to postpone until this past March. Hakim’s service was stellar: informative, responsive, reliable, patient—and whatever other positive adjective could be applied to a travel professional. Hakim and kimkim were also... read more
First experience with KimKim Travels · Morocco - Mar 19 - Mar 25, 2022
This was my first experience with KimKim travels and I couldn’t be more happy with the service provided. Hakim was wonderful and helped me plan a detailed itinerary to my wants and needs. Communication was wonderful before and during the trip, Hakim was always available to answer any questions we had. From the airport pick up to all the destinations in between and at the end of the trip, the tour was great!
Our most favorite part was getting to Merzouga to our camp, which was more then... read more
Karim made it a Amazing experience and a great tour · Morocco - Nov 19 - Nov 29, 2021
Amazing experience and a great tour led by Karim. He is the best and was very congenial and supported us every way during the tour. He made sure we saw the attractions and ensured we did not miss any. Even though this is my 2nd trip to Morocco, we had a better and great experience due to Karim. If you ever book a trip to Morocco, make sure Karim is taking you. Though a bit pricey, worth every bit of it.
Wonderful trip to Morocco · Morocco - Jun 13 - Jun 19, 2021
We had a wonderful trip to Morocco! Hakim was our trip planner, and everything was well thought of. The riads were all great, and we had a wonderful time at the Orient Desert Camp. Our driver, Mohammed was especially wonderful, and he took care of all details including getting our COVID test to fly back home. Our guide Said in Fez was extremely knowledgeable and a great person to spend the day with. Overall, highly recommend a visit to Morocco and using the same team we had for our trip!
Highly recommend · Morocco - Apr 4 - Apr 10, 2021
Hakim has to be the best tour operator we’ve ever worked with. Responsive yet also proactive, he followed up with us regarding our trip throughout the difficult pandemic year and kept the channels of communication going despite the country being under lockdown. This was very reassuring to us. He also kept following up with our progress, and soliciting for feedback during our trip to make sure we were enjoying our time. Who does that? With most operators you have a hard time getting a... read more
Morocco trip · Morocco - Mar 7 - Mar 14, 2020
Kimkim (through Hakim) provided excellent overall service, coordination of the total trip in Morocco and in their choice of Riads (hotels) in Fes and Marrakech. Hakim was particularly helpful and kept us informed at each step of the planning phase, working with us through several iterations
Local drivers arranged by Hakim were on time and courteous. Guides were also very good and informative. One minor delay was resolved promptly by Kimkim and Hakim.

Exploring Morocco's Cities · Morocco - Feb 4 - Feb 9, 2020
Our local specialists Brahim and Hakim were wonderful. We planned our trip very quickly through kimkim and it was seamless. We valued their insight and knowledge of Morocco and recommendations on what was best to do on our short trip. The trip plan was detailed and we had all the vouchers and documents we needed way before departure. Great professional service provided by Orion Trek.
The two guided tours arranged for us in Marrakech and Fes were fantastic. Our guides were very friendly and... read more
Five days in majestic Morocco · Morocco - Feb 4 - Feb 9, 2020
Hakim & Brahim pieced together our trip based on our desired cities and worked it perfectly around the flights we already had booked. Each place we visited was as compelling and engrossing as the next. On the night we arrived, we met at the Riad and it was the most beautiful room I think I've ever stayed in. It had blue marble walls and a shower fir for a king. That evening we ate at a restaurant called Nomad, which had an open upstairs sitting area with really cool views of the city.... read more
Very pleased · Morocco - Dec 28 - Jan 15, 2020
We are so pleased we chose Kimkim to organise our Moroccan adventure. Our driver, our accommodation, our itinerary, our guides - everything was incredibly well executed and communicated. We saw tour buses everywhere and were so glad that our trip was customised and local. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hakim and his team.
Wonderful intense 13 Day Morocco Trip over Xmas and New Year · Morocco - Dec 24 - Jan 4, 2020
My overall experience was great, and what an adventure it was in Morocco! Hakim organized my trip efficiently as I booked rather last minute in mid Nov for a Xmas holiday. Unfortunately he could not book many of the riads I initially wanted to stay in as they were full, but it all worked out fine. 13 days allowed me enough time to get a good sense of the country as I went from Casblanca to Rabat, Chefchaouen, Fez, Merzouga desert, Ouarzazate, the Dades and Draa Valleys, Marrakesh, and... read more

Guide at Fez was good !
Guide at Marrakesh was disappointing , was always in a rush , would not give time to take pictures as he said he had another group to take . The trip mentioned was 6 hours , he was gone in less than 4 hours and we had to go on our own to the gardens .
Guide At Essaouira was practically not required , all he did was walk around , said a bit and was keen that we ate at one of the places he recommends and the rest apparently was not good . It was obvious that he had... read more
Marrakech, Essaouira & the Grand Tour of the Sahara Region · Morocco - Sep 27 - Oct 7, 2019
Hakim did a wonderful job planning our vacation. He was very responsive to our feedback and worked with us to create an itinerary that suited everyone's needs. A night in the Sahara was a highlight of the trip where we enjoyed a beautiful cloudless night of star gazing. Getting to the Sahara involved a lot of driving so we were happy to have the company of our driver, Said, who brought joy to our long van rides. We got to stop at many attractions along the way to break up the drive. Exploring... read more
An excellent faultless 15 day tour of Morocco · Morocco - Oct 9 - Oct 23, 2019
The trip went extremely well with no problems at all, just as planned. Thanks Hakim. A job well done.
My favourite places were Essaouira for its relaxed and groovy lifestyle, out there on the Atlantic coast. There was none of the harrassing of tourists by vendors that has become so intrusive in Marrakesh. Its a very walkable compact medina and I dint get lost. Greta map provided by the hotel. And my other favourite was Chefchouen. Every where you looked was fascinating, like Venice. Every... read more
Marrakech, Essaouira & the Grand Tour of the Sahara Region · Morocco - Sep 27 - Oct 7, 2019
Mr. Said was a highlight of the trip, he was approachable, kind, and helpful.
Trip to Morocco · Morocco - Aug 7 - Aug 12, 2019
We very much enjoyed our trip. The planning process as well as getting around from place to place were all very easy, thanks to the arrangements that were made for us. I love that we were taken to all the places we wanted to go, including high quality restaurants, without having to do the planning ourselves. However, I don't think we were quite prepared for the amount of driving that the trip entailed, which definitely wore us out. It would have been nice if the team were a little more... read more
