Disappointed in Viator here. The tour indicates an English speaking guide who will meet you at your accommodation. The guide did not meet us at our Riad but instead called with instructions to walk out and find him. This was not overly onerous and would have been forgotten. However, upon meeting the guide we discovered that he did not speak any English.
In addition to this he drove like a maniac spending a good deal of time on the wrong side of the road while approaching the many blind corners on the route.
The tour itself, the route through the High Atlas and Ait Ben Haddou are very interesting. My recommendation would be to book through your accommodation or research a local tour company and ensure you know what your getting as far as a guide is concerned.
