Hakim Alibouche

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."

Marrakech, Essaouira & the Grand Tour of the Sahara Region · Morocco - Sep 27 - Oct 7, 2019

Traveler: Selene C. - Local specialist: Hakim Alibouche

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.

Exploring Ait Benhaddou was tons of fun and I was glad to have stopped to take the studio tour in Ouarzazate (never would have thought to stop there without the help of kimkim). All of our accommodations were lovely, especially Dar Azam in Marrakech - Omar and Sana (employees or Dar Azam) were extremely welcoming.

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.

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 turn was another photo opportunity. So pretty with the blue walls and the handcrafts displayed against them and no harrassment by vendors. Just delightful.
I especially appreciated the female tour guides as there is a conspicuous lack of presence of women in Morocco so these younger , highly educated women were such a delight to meet. Fatima in Fes and Bushra in Meknes. They were professional, kind and so interesting. They are the ambassadors for women in Morocco.
Thank you again, Sue and Ari.

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

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 upfront about how many hours of driving the trip would involve. Also, we were given the luxury tent in the desert, which was separated from all the other travelers. I wish we would have been given the option of the standard tent instead of the luxury tent. The running water in the tent didn't actually work and we didn't use the outlets since we were there for such a short time. I would have preferred to sleep in the standard tent and save the money, had I been given the option. A tour guide at the kasbah also would have been nice, since we didn't really know much about what we were looking at. I do feel we could have done this trip for less money, although all the arrangements were very nice. It would have been overwhelming without the support of kimkim. Overall, we had a great time on our trip and enjoyed the country very much.
