4.3 / 5

It is a worthwhile trip, we enjoyed it very much. There are many days and hotels and transfers, local guides. I imagine it is very difficult to organize the logistics of all this. We just didn't like the first day's guide that just focused on taking us into stores to buy stuff and earn commissions. He didn't take a break for lunch, he didn't stop by the souks around Jemaa El Fna square and he also removed the Menara Garden from the itinerary on his own. I suspect he removed the Menara Garden as it is a public garden and he earns no commission from it. We had lunch at 4 pm and we were starving. Apart from that, the rest was very nice, we got to know many things even in Morocco and I can say that it was worth it. Hotels are good, everything functional. I would do it again and recommend it. Points for the Dino guide.

Incredible Food tour. Hicham was my guide and was fantastic! I was given tons of fantastic food and a wealth of history from my very knowledgeable tour guide. As a lone traveler he even took amazing photos for me! All and all I left this tour absolutely stuffed full of fantastic food and thoroughly enjoyed learning about Rabat and Morocco history and even more about the food and places to visit here. If you are looking for something to do in Rabat this is a must!

Exceptional is the adjective that I would use to describe our experience yesterday on our walking tour with Hassan. He was a fantastic guide demonstrating his expansive knowledge of the culture of Morocco’s historical. He went above and beyond! He was prompt, personable, witty, and all-around a pleasure to spin the day with. It was a perfect way to start off our Morrocan vacation!

The tour was very intense and interesting, we saw many places always accompanied by our driver Rida, always kind, very nice, and attentive to our needs, and by various very competent guides. We recommend this tour to everyone!

If you do not have much time to cover all over Morocco, this activity would be one of the most recommended to cover few best cities in just 3 days & its really worth every penny!
