I worked as a tourist Driver, waiter & cook laboratory operator, cosmetic and alimentary products distributor ... for certain time, but being away from guiding made me realize how much I loved teaching clients about my land, my people and life. I started getting into technical mountaineering trips. Since then, I’ve never looked back. Guiding means providing a safe, rewarding experience for my clients, so you’ve gotta enjoy interacting with new people. Really, I’m a learning teacher.” How to Gain Experience: “Most guides I know work for companies so they don’t have to worry about attracting clients or getting public land permits and insurance. In morocco, independent guides have a tough time with those three things, especially in the beginning. start at a company and gain skills, connections, and a reputation. that's what allow me to branch out.
