Amazing
Danielle_M, Jul 2022
Mohamed was amazing! Was great at navigating the Souks, super knowledgeable about Moroccan culture. He showed us the best shops for the things we were looking for (ceramics, pashminas, light fixtures etc) he also helped us haggle with the shop keepers to make sure that we didn’t overspend. He also ensured that what we bought was wrapped properly so they actually made it back to the US and UK in one piece! He was very sweet-helped is carry our haul, treated us the freshest orange juice & water to ensure we stayed hydrated through our time together. One of our other tours included a brief walk through of the Souks which seemed very touristy but Mohamed took us deep into the Souks for the most authentic experience. As young women, he made us feel comfortable and made sure that no one bothered us or took advantage of us not speaking French/Arabic. My cousins stayed an extra day and arranged a second tour with one of their colleagues who also raved about him!

Hello Danielle, Thank for sharing your lovely feedback! This is encouraging me to offer always a better service! Your cousins booked the tour with me again, because they liked the private Souk shopping tour! Thank you again Danielle for everything! Hope to see you all next time! Kind regards, Mohamed
BEST TOURS IN MARRAKECH!!!!
Shelly_H, Nov 2021
We did multiple tours with Muhammad and Marrakech Guide Tours. He was AWESOME! Easy to book, on time and knows Marrakech and everyone in it! We were able to find the BEST food and shopped for authentic handmade Moroccan pieces of all kinds. I would have been able to navigate the markets without him.

Hello Shelly, Thank you for your feedback. Happy to hear that you enjoyed the private shopping tour in the Souks of Marrakech and the food tour. I will be happy to greet you next time. Kind regards, Mohamed
Must book if you want to shop
Keith_H, Nov 2021
Had the tour at 9am on a Friday so not a lot of stores were open but it was also a lot less crowded than at night. Guide was great, took me to locations to buy all the things I wanted.

Perfect introduction to the souks
Natasha S, Oct 2019
I did this tour only 2 hours after arriving in Marrakech. First, Mohammed was a great communicator as I was a bit nervous on how he would find me at the meeting place. This was no problem. The tour was a great mix of shopping and history. He took me to historical places around the souk and showed me the work that went into some of the craftsmanship. Yes, he does take you to certain places where he has connections but I didn't mind because there truly wasn't a pressure to buy. It gave me a good glimpse at the quality products within the souks so when I was wandering later alone, I could tell the difference. He also has a great sense of humor and really puts in the effort to get to know you. The experience flew by and he even helped me get a tuk tuk ride back to my riad when it was all over, which he paid for. I was so impressed by this tour. I went on this tour alone but I think it could be just as valuable if you went in a group.

Hello, Thank you very much for your lovely feedback and sharing your experience with future guests. I will be happy to greet you again. Kind regards, Mohammed
Our tour guide was very...
Zachary_T, Sep 2022
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and knew which shops to take us too that had what we wanted. Overall, I would recommend this tour
Great tour for shoppers
Kevin_K, May 2022
My wife and I really enjoyed this tour. We did it soon after arriving in Marrakech, and while it can be fun to wander aimlessly through the souks, we found it incredibly helpful to have somebody to ask questions to like “Is that real?” or “What’s a good price for a tajine?” We did have a few things in mind ahead of time that we were interested in buying, but our guide, Mohamed, made things extremely easy and showed us a variety of high-quality vendors. He was also very outgoing and went above and beyond to help us enjoy the experience. We’d obviously recommend having some intent of actually buying something if you’re going to do this (and having some cash on you!), but for interested shoppers this is perfect.

Hello Kevin, Thank you for sharing your experience regarding shopping in the souks of Marrakech. happy to hear that you enjoyed the tur. thank you again! kind regards, Mohamed
Awesome shopping guide
Heidi_S, Mar 2022
We had a wonderful experience with Mohamed! Just my husband and I. Mohamed’s tours are completely customized. We wanted to shop for specific things so he took us deep into the souks to quality shops away from tourists. We were not pressured to buy, but if we wanted to, Mohamed would negotiate a better price for us. He was generous with his time. I would highly recommend this tour. Mohamed is a licensed tour guide so can arrange to be any guide you may want (sights, food tour, etc.)

Hello Heidi, Thank you for your feedback. Happy to hear that you enjoyed shopping with us and describing the Souks experience. Thank you so much! I will be happy to meet you next time. Kind regards, Mohamed
Shopping in souk
Jane_G, Mar 2020
We met at 10am outside Cafe de France. Mohammad was our guide ( four of us). Glad we were not in big group. Unfortunately Mohammad seemed to be in charge of organising other groups and we were lateto start. He was very pleasant and spoke good English but was distracted continually on phone and we felt very neglected. Enjoyed what we saw very much and when we wanted to buy he helped us bargain. We visited secret garden. Saw slippers being made, metal work, a bakery and Argan oil etc shop. We were impressed and bought but were later told back in our Riad it was simply cooking oil we felt very cheated. We could not have done this without s guide and felt it was overpriced for what we got we had to ask for both water and coffee which was included in price. We booked our own guide next day and were delighted and realised just how poor first day was
Response from Host, Mar 2020
Hello, We are sorry if the guide was distracted because of many bookings that we had to manage but you were not neglected because as you said on the review, you did see many things that the RIAD CANNOT show you without the GUIDE. We are Very sad to hear that you believed what the Riad said about your guide, because this Riad they always want to sell you their products including Oils, city tours, excursions, restaurants because they get paid out of this and so forth. Because they failed to sell you the guided city tour, they have to tell you that the oil was not real , in order to sell you another service the next day. I wonder Why you did not contact us regarding the quality or even get refunded if you think it was expensive; before judging our service. Finally, do not anticipate and give a value judgement because people are not the same. Thank you. Kind regards, Marrakech guide tours's team
Kind guide

Very kind guide, made me feel comfortable and at ease. We walked around the Medina and visited different fondouks where artisans work.

A fantastic tour!
Kaleb_L, Oct 2021
Such a great tour! We were able to customize to make it exactly what I needed for location scouting and shopping. I also appreciated the help negotiating in the markets. You can be pretty aggressively haggled as a foreigner so having a guide really does wonders in allowing you to have a targeted exploration! Would 100% recommend

You Can’t Go Wrong with This Tour!
CHERRI_M, Mar 2022
Mohammad did a great job tailoring our tour specifically to what we wanted to see and do. He seemed to have a professional rapport with many of the shipowners and even stayed with us after our tour until he was sure we were set up for our next tour. I highly recommend Mohammad for this tour.

Medina Souks Tour
Katherine_H, Aug 2019
Mohamad was the very best guide! He took us to all the best shops for spices, rugs and beautiful tea sets just to name a few items. It was a half day tour but he stayed with us until we found everything we were looking for. Shaakran Mohamad.

Amazing
doorsdowngirl, Apr 2022
Thank you Mohamed for the amazing shopping tour in the souks. Mohamed made us feel at ease from the start. He told us lots of interesting things about Marrakech. We wanted to buy some special souvenirs such as Moroccan pastries, wooden bowls, handmade scarves and leather slippers and Mohamed showed us the best shops to buy them. We met so many kind local business owners. We stopped for drinks in a cute place where we enjoyed some delicious tea in the sun. It was a lovely day!

Souls tour in Marrakech
Laura_K, Jul 2019
We had a great time exploring the Souks with Mohammed! I definitely recommend getting a tour guide because the souks are a big maze. We went to several great shops, and were able to get some Argan oil, and several souvenirs. Highly recommend!
Exploring the medina

First time in Marrakech
Michelle_W, Oct 2021
This short tour is a must for those who is first time in marrakech. I'd highly recommend everyone to book this tour for your first day of your trip. This tour gives you alot of information of marrakech and save you alot of time looking on google. We were met by Mohammed outside of cafe de france in the morning at 10am. This is a walking tour and easy walking pace so it is suitable for everyone. Mohammed our local guide shown us around Medina and gave us lots of information about the culture and history of Marrakech. We discovered alot of new places in the souks with Mohammed. You'll find in that everyone in marrakech selling almost the similar things. It is not easy to choose one that is not going to rip you off. Mohammed can help you with this by showing you where is the best place to buy i.e rugs / lamps/ spices ... etc Mohammed also can give you advice on where is the best place to eat too. Mohammed is your lifesaver in Marrakesh. He is very kind and humble. I would highly recommend everyone book this tour.

Exploring the Souks and local food stops in Marrakech
Sarah_B, Jul 2022
We did the walking tour with Mohammad on our first day in Marrakech and it gave us a great introduction to the city. Mohammad tailored the tour to include some local food stops. He was well informed on the area. This tour is great to get some assistance with navigating the souks. Have an idea of a few things you would like to purchase and Mohammad will help with negotiating a price.
Great experience
Laura_H, May 2022
Great tour. Mohamed was an excellent guide who knew a huge amount of history about the souks snd the mosques and tombs within. I really wanted good quality saffron and he took us to a fabulous herbalist, where we ended up buying much more than we anticipated!! Overall a great tour. As two single women, we weren't very confident tackling the souks alone, but we felt very safe with Mohamed. A really interesting tour, would highly recommend!
