Youness Labchir



Hello everbody, I am Youness Labchir an official English and French speaking Tour Guide in Morocco. I was born in a small town nearby the capital, Rabat. I moved to Marrakesh 15 years ago for education purposes, specifically to attend the University. As a part-time job to earn an income and support my studies, I began offering tours to visitors. I enjoyed the work and learned a lot from the different people I have met over the years.

Earning money in my free time by driving tourists around — including actors on movie shoots. This inspired me to create my own company. Morkosh Tours, where I showcase the culture and customs of the Moroccan people — from Moroccan-Andalusian architecture to the traditional way of life, such as Berber cooking, as well as adventure tours in the Atlas Mountains and Sahara desert.

How did you become

a Morocco Tour guide?

I began as an English-speaking driver for tourists. I received a job opportunity working in the (movie) industry where I drove those who were working on movie shoots around Morocco. I learned many things and met several people of different nationalities, religions, and cultures. I have also had the privilege to work alongside Genevieve O’Reilly, John Stellan Skarsgard, and Clint Eastwood.

Why did you create

Morkosh Tours?

I am highly motivated and strive to do the best I possibly can. Realizing my extensive knowledge of Moroccan history and my natural flair with the general public, combined with having received positive feedback from customers, I realized I could have the freedom to plan a personal itinerary based on the individual client’s needs.

What are some activities for the more

Adventurous traveler in Morocco?

There are several adventure tours customized according to the location and customers themselves: camel trekking in the Palmeraie of Marrakesh or in the sand dunes, quad biking in the desert of Marrakesh and water reservoir or on the beach of Essaouira, jet skiing in Essaouira or Agadir, hiking in the Atlas Mountains or in the Sahara desert.

What’s involved in a

Berber cooking class?

The cooking classes are organized in a true Berber house and not in a touristy restaurant or a hotel. The dishes are made by customers with the guidance of the grandmother of the Berber family to keep the local methods, and our guide will translate and assist with communication. We like to give our customers a real, unique experience of village life by shopping alongside the locals, making them feel welcome at the souk. The Berber Cooking Tour offers opportunities to make Berber mint tea and fresh Moroccan salads, take milk from the cow, and bake and cook local bread, tagine, and couscous on an open fire.

The most rewarding aspect of my job is the satisfaction I feel when I fulfill our commitment at the end. Knowing that I have delivered on our promises brings a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment that makes the journey worthwhile.

What’s the most bizarre experience a guided tour?


One of the most bizarre experiences on a guided tour was when someone asked to travel from Marrakesh to the desert in just one day, despite the long journey. It turned out to be a memorable and adventurous trip, defying the odds of time and distance.

As an experienced guide yourself,

can you explain the benefits of hiring a guide?

Absolutely! Hiring a guide offers a multitude of benefits that can greatly enhance your travel experience. Firstly, there’s safety; having an experienced guide by your side ensures you navigate unfamiliar terrain and situations with confidence, reducing potential risks.

Secondly, knowledge is key. A seasoned guide possesses in-depth insights about the destination’s history, culture, and hidden gems. They enrich your journey with fascinating stories and facts, turning your trip into an immersive and educational adventure.

Trust is another crucial advantage. Putting your trust in a reputable guide means you can relax and focus on enjoying your trip, knowing they have your best interests at heart and will make well-informed decisions on your behalf.

Comfort is also paramount. A guide can handle logistics, transportation, and accommodation, streamlining your trip and sparing you the hassle of planning and organizing every detail yourself.

Lastly, hiring a guide ensures a hassle-free experience. They can navigate language barriers, negotiate with local vendors, and provide insider tips on the best places to eat, shop, and explore, saving you time and effort while maximizing your enjoyment.

All in all, having a guide by your side offers a level of support and expertise that elevates your travel experience, making it safer, more insightful, and ultimately, more memorable.
