Samy Alkaihal

Samy has a wide-range of travel experience on a both-personal and business perspective. He was born in Morocco but was raised in the United States and has a strong passion for international endeavors and business. His favorite places he’s been to are Italy and Hawaii – as they are both a combination of his personality. Western with a sparkle of the East! This will be his first Global Works tour trip and he is ready to fall in love with the organization! When he’s not guiding tours or traveling, Samy’s a lover of the outdoors so you’ll find him biking or hiking somewhere. He’s also got two German Shepherds, so he has to keep them active. He also enjoys a nice book or unleashing his creative side through art and poetry! He’s all about having an open mindset, both when traveling and non-traveling, so he’s excited to help others get in touch with their nomadic side!
