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 attracts 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 degree in Literature. Just by earning diploma, I applied to a Specialized Institute where I decided to study about Travel Agencies and Tourisme before I applied to the Higher Institute of Tourism in Tangier where I got my professional Bachelor Degree in Hospitality & Tourism Marketing. Now, with over 2 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 on 2018 trough the High Atlas Mountain and especially in its second day where I reached the Sommet. It was such a great adventure, standing in the top of the mountain near the sky and the cloud. Additionally, the night at the gite with the locals were also remarkable in my life. I'm definitely sure that I'll do this activity for twice & trice in the nearest future."

Recent trip reviews for Hakim
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

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.

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

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
