Mohamed Hjira

Mohamed Hjira was born in the classic Amazigh town of Azilal in Morocco’s High Atlas. His hometown, the gateway to the Central High Atlas, was often visited by travelers because of its proximity to the spectacular Ouzoud Waterfalls, so during his childhood he met people from all around the world, which led him to want to make a career as a guide. Mohamed moved to Marrakesh and graduated from the University of Marrakesh with a degree in economics, then obtained his guide license. He has guided for us in the High Atlas as well as many other regions of Morocco since 2010, and has a wide knowledge of and an infectious passion for the ancient cultures and natural beauty of his home country. He speaks fluent English as well as French, Amazigh, and Arabic.

Morocco: Camels to Casbahs
Mohamed was a true delight! Incredibly knowledgeable about his country, the history, the customs, the cuisine, never had a question he could not answer. His personality charmed us all! Mohamed was willing to share stories from his village and his family and of the educational path he chose. He knew everyone, had friends everywhere we journeyed, knew the stories behind the stories! He was absolutely awesome to have as our guide. His care and concern for each of us, our health, our safety, our needs, went above and beyond what was expected.

I can't say enough good things about Mohamed. He was truly a dream guide! He took care of everything seamlessly and professionally and provided profound insights into his county (which he's deservedly proud of). He's kind, thoughtful, and intelligent, and perfect for the type of traveller who takes this trip. We all loved him and were sorry to say goodbye.

Morocco: Camels to Casbahs
A superb guide on every level. Culturally aware, nuanced in inter-personal dealings, highly effective in maneuvering through situations, took us to sights not on the official tour (market in Rissani, Jewish cemetery near Erfoud) that were highlights for us…and he was simply fun to be with.
