This was an absolutely excellent tour, our guide was extremely nice, extremely knowledgeable, and I learned so much about Marrakech. What a fantastic way to see and learn about a new city! The highlight was the beautiful Bahia Palace, just gorgeous and wonderful for picture taking. I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for a really fun, educational, and enjoyable time in Marrakech with a wonderful, and friendly guide. Thank you so much!

My boyfriend and I did this tour and were so very happy with it overall - it was just the two of us plus our guide, Youssef Rouissi. He was incredibly knowledgable and nice, we couldn't have been happier. His English was impeccable - he studied at an American school in his youth and ultimately spent quite a few years in the US as an adult. On our walking tour we were very impressed and so very pleased with his knowledge and insight. He even let us take more time in some areas than originally planned for and took some photos for us. He also helped us with tips for some shops and restaurants.
I would highly recommend this tour especially as a start to the city. Youssef helped us figure out where in the city we'd like to explore after our time together.

This was a first class way of introducing Marrakech and the local people to us shortly on arrival. We joined a group of 5 and we all got on really well . Could not fault this tour. We had continental breakfast at Cafe de France a bargain at 35MAD. Well done for getting our trip off to such a great start.

Excellent tour Mustapha was very knowledgeable and took his time to allow me to explore, unfortunately my husband found the walking too much so caught a taxi back to the Hotel. I would certainly recommend this walking tour to anyone visiting Marrakesh as it allowed us to get our bearings for exploring on out own.

We really enjoyed it. Our guide Abdul shared with us useful information and it was a great way to see the Medina and get a sense of the city. We were very pleasantly surprised that the tour included more sites than mentioned in the description. Thank you!

It was great to start our trip to Marrakech with a tour guide like Mustapha. His English is impeccable and he has a wealth of knowledge on many topics. Our group was fairly small so he had the time for all of our questions, and there were a lot of questions! He seemed to cover more than what we expected, which was a treat, plus it was much easier to navigate the endless winding souks on our own after having been introduced to them by Mustapha.

This tour was a great idea at the start of our visit to Marrakech. We did it on the first morning, and met our guide Mustapha at the Café de France in the main square at 9AM. It allowed us to get our bearings on the first day. The tour lasted about 4 hours and provided a fascinating first taste of the Medina of Marrakech. Our group was small, only 5 of us in all, which was great because we could ask questions. Our guide was very nice, with excellent English, and made the tour very interesting. He provided enough detail to keep us interested but without bewildering us.
Among other things, we visited the Bahia Palace where you should watch out for the storks nesting on the pillars in front of the Palace! They provide a great photo opportunity. Inside, the palace there are some super friendly cats wandering around which I found charming. We also visited a bakery where locals bring their bread to be baked in a huge oven, and a pharmacy that sold spices and oils where we were given mint tea and offered a short massage for a few dirhams. A tour of the souks was particularly fascinating, as we watched tradesmen of all kinds making goods from leather and metal. The guided walk through the souk provided us with the only opportunity to go in there without being constantly pestered by the stallholders!! The tour finished up in the Museum of photography, where a lovely exhibition of photographs depicted Moroccan culture over the years. Overall, I would happily recommend this tour and our lovely guide. We all enjoyed it.

This tour was excellent thanks to our guide who went beyond his call of duty to show and explain everything to us! I would recommend it to anyone who visits Marrakech-step one to understanding this incredible city! Other tours were nowhere near as informative and fun

We are very happy that we took half-day walking tour of Marrakech’s medina and major attractions on our first day. Our guide Mustapha shared his big knowledge about Marrakech and Marroco. We highly reccomend our guide Mustapha and the tour.

Our tour guide Latif was excellent. He was very informative, helpful, kind and funny and along with the history told us many personal stories too about his time growing up in Marakesh. Also recommended some excellent restaurants and helped us with bookings.

Brilliant!

Mustafa was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. Took us to a spice trader in the souk on request and we got some excellent saffron and spices. One of the highlights of our stay in morocco!

The walking tour was well worth the money. Our guide is a Marrakech native and very informed on the culture and history. Must be in good shape to walk for three hours. Was able to see all of the historical aspects of the city. Would highly recommend this tour.

My friend and I were given a tour by the wonderful Mustapha. He was very friendly and knowledgable. We had such a fun time and would recommend this tour to anyone going to marrakech for the first time. It gives you a great idea of the city so that you can go back and explore more on your own.

A good tour which unfortunately lasted too long.
The tour was supposed to last 4 hours. Unfortunately one guest did not show, so we had to wait 45 minutes for her to turn up. Apparently she had not bothered to check the start time and so all of us who started on time we had to wait. I prefer tours which treat you like an adult. If you are late the tour starts without you. Consequently our tour took 5 hours which meant that we finally returned to the Djemaa El-Fna at 2 pm, footsore and hungry. As a diabetic this delay did not suit me.
The tour itself was good. All the places visited were interesting and our guide provided much useful information. Book the tour by all means, but be assertive if you are asked to wait for a late comer.
