1. DISABLED TOURIST GUIDE
Let me help you discover the beauty of Morocco
WHO I AM
My name is El Houssaine Ichen. I was born in Tounfite, an area in the
mountains with a cold climate. I contracted polio at the age of three and
since then I have been paralysed. But as I have grown up with this
handicap, I do not let it slow me down. I make use of leg braces and
crutches to assist my mobility. Surprisingly you may find it hard to keep up
with me even when mountain hiking. Remember I grew up here and I’m
used to the terrain.
I do speak Tamazight (the Chleuh Dialect), Arabic, French, English and
WHY I DO THIS
My mission is to develop and succeed in a disabled-led tourism business in
Morocco. I am building up a network to help disabled tourists enjoy the parts
of Morocco they would normally not be able to see.
It is my ambition to develop my own viable tourism business by
providing information on accessible tourism for disabled people
and persons with reduced mobility.
I offer assistance to all tourists, both disabled and able-bodied. I know my way around all of Morocco’s
major places and we can put together any type of tour. This could include a desert trip and all kind of
other off-the-beaten track tours. I can help you combine sea, cities, mountains, desert, historical places,
film locations and volcanoes in one trip, if you like.
Being local, I can make arrangements to be much more cost effective than what you can do yourself,
all based on your needs, requirements and ideas.
ACCESSIBILITY & ACCOMMODATION
Wheelchair accessibility within some Moroccan accommodations
is reasonable. However, many places in Morocco are far behind
the standards you will be used to in America and Europe.
The good news is, that Wheelchair accessibility in Morocco is
improving and I certainly can find suitable accommodations for
If you would like to explore the beauty of Morocco with me, I would be delighted to be your guide!
Please feel free to contact me and we can discover the possibilities together.
