Gay Friendly African Tour Guides in Morocco
Holiday Houseboys is in five destinations in Morocco. Namely Casablanca, Marrakesh, Meknes, Merzouga and Rabat.
This is what Jason from the UK had to say recently about Soufaine in Casablanca
“Soufaine was a great guide during my time in Casablanca. He was very knowledgeable and gave me a good tour of the city. He speaks excellent English and was very kind and amenable.”
Also in the Maghreb region is Hamza, a tennis coach in Tunis, Tunisia. With a passion for cinematography, Hamza is your ideal companion for your tour guide of Tunis who can take your professional looking snapshots.
Gay Friendly African Tour Guides in Egypt
Our connections in Egypt are through Khaled, a professional egyptologist tour guide, with his own tour company. Based in Cairo, he can also cover Alexandria, Aswan and Luxor.
Khaled has also designed an “Egypt Sun Festival & Nile Cruise Tour” from 19th February to 27th February 2023. This is a very special tour as the Egyptians celebrate the Sun Festival on 22nd February 2023. Only one day of two days per year when the sun enters an Egyptian archeological site in Abu Simbel, lighting up the faces of the good gods of Ra, Amun and Ramses II but keeping Ptah, the goddess of darkness, firmly in the shadows.
Coupled with a Nile Cruise this is a splendid one of a kind experience. Click here for more info.
