About the Host

Azdean Elmoustaquim Profile Photo

Azdean Elmoustaquim

Co-Founder

My name is Azdean Elmoustaquim and I was born and raised in the Imperial city of Marrakech, Morocco. My family hails from the small village of Telouet, on the outskirts of Ouarzazate. After finishing school, I moved to the United States in 1995, settling in Houston. My wife, Khadija Elomari, and I took our love for Morocco and our passion for sharing our homeland with others and created the Destination Morocco tour company. Our goal is to help with the planning of customized travel itineraries to Morocco - whether via private tour, an escorted group tour, or the more individualized FIT (Fully/Flexible Independent Travel) approach. All tour packages are handcrafted and personalized and guarantee you or your clients will experience Morocco like a native, fall in love with our country, and likely visit time and time again.

Destination Morocco Podcast was the next step in our journey and was born from a desire to help make planning a trip to Morocco easier and more fun for future visitors. On each episode, you will join me as we explore my country's distinct culture, vibrant history, and stunning attractions. Through speaking with locals and guides, you will learn the best ways to travel from place to place, what to expect at each location, and how to make the most of each day. We will discuss everything from high-end travel to budget-travel, how to stay safe (especially for female travelers), how to bargain and the kinds of scams to look out for in the bazaars, and so much more. Each Destination Morocco episode will introduce you to another aspect of the real, authentic Morocco, unpacking the mystery of this amazing land. We will be releasing new episode twice month, on the 1st and on the 15th.
