The visit was fabulous our guide Mohamed gave us a very interesting visit he knows the place very well and he told us all the history and took us to magical places we visited all the spicy souks, slippers ironworkers lamps etc he told us took to see the baking of the locals' bread inside the souks we cut short (appointment with the taxi) ourselves the visit because he is a passionate person who would have extended the moment thank you to Mohamed for his kindness and his knowledge

It was actually my second tour with my guide Mohamed, and it was perfect! Not only was he engaging and warm, but he had amazing local knowledge of the various artisans and their craft, and was glad to share it. He was happy to stop to accomadate shopping preferences, and helped to negotiate some bargains as well. Altogether a morning well spent.

One of the best food tours we’ve done. There were so many dishes to try that we lost count and it wasn’t just street food we saw either. You get to see the communal ovens used by locals for years. Our guide was so nice, really engaging and funny ‘innit’. We’d recommend this tour to anyone.

Our guide Mohamed Ben was very friendly and welcoming. He explained a lot to us about the history of Morocco during the souks tours. He quickly put us at ease and gave us time to enjoy. We felt safe with him. To advice

Very excellent trip with competent and attentive guides listening to all our concerns. I warmly recommend guide Kalidh and driver Adnan
