KE Local Moroccan Guides

Our Top Team in Morocco

Last month our annual leader training took place in Marrakech. Those of you that have travelled to Morocco with KE will know Morocco is a super destination but it is our team of dedicated guides, which make it superb! Hospitality comes naturally to our Berber guides and along with never ending reserves of enthusiasm it is easy to understand why we receive nothing but praise from our returning travellers.  Supplying never-ending smiles, their passion for Morocco is infectious and their easy- going nature instantly makes you feel at ease in this friendly culture. Keen to improve future adventures Mustafa, Hassan, Omar, Hassan and Mohamed were brimming with ideas to take our groups to hidden corners of their homeland. Watch this space for 2015!
