Abderrahman Oukassi - private tour guide in Marrakesh (Morocco)
I am a travel agent and tour guide, offering tours and trekkings throughout Morocco. Guided city trips, adventurous trekkings or cultural tours, all will be perfectly organized according to your needs and wishes.
Abderrahmane Oukassi, a young native of the mountains, experienced in tourism, who decided to devote himself to instilling the love of an authentic and adventurous Moroccan experience, as he truly loves his country!
I am born in November 1986 as the third son of a traditional Berber family at a small village in the Dades Valley.
After 11 years of schooling, I followed in my father's footsteps, and helped building houses. I initially started in the villages of Dades and decided then to move to the city of Oujda, where I worked for some years as a constructor. Later – after getting my driver's license – I decided to learn to drive a caterpillar, which was hard work, controlling huge machines.
To work in tourism, I needed to improve my French and had to learn English to be able to communicate with people from all over the world. I therefore started to work in a Kasbah hotel at the foot of the dunes of Erg Chebbi, doing a bit of everything.
After three years of education I moved over to Marrakech to work in some Riads for one more year. Then it was time to complete an examination to become a professional driver and to start working as a driver/guide for touristic private and group tours.
