Know More about this tour

Enjoy being part of the everyday hustle and bustle of the local community: hear school kids walking home with their friends, singing songs together. See groups of women chatting and laughing while carrying the groceries just bought on the markets. Step aside as a man rushing by, on his head a huge tray of unbaked bread. A donkey pulling a pomegranate-filled carriage. This is the real deal.

On this private tour, you can enjoy Marrakech life up-close and personal. Feel the heat on your face when you meet the man who stokes the fire that heats the water in the local Hammam. Smell the delicious freshly baked bread when you step inside a family-run bakery. And be amazed by the beautiful architecture and the Moroccan style decor.

Together with your local host discover the five elements that are the heart of each Moroccan neighborhood. Feel what it is like to be part of the local community. Visit a local artist in his atelier and gaze at his wonderful paintings. Ask him about his work and find out the history and tales of the place youre visiting.
Enjoy the stunning architecture of the Ben Youssef Madrasa, the 14th-century Islamic college that is still adored by the locals today. It was the most important Quranic school of Marrakech and the first university in the city. Now its stunning architecture and intricate mosaics make it a must-see for any Marrakech traveler.

The local hosts on your private tour are all great storytellers and cant wait to share some unique insights and personal anecdotes with you! Also, ask as many questions as you want. Your private host is a true local and can give you great advice.

    If anyone is going to Marrakech for the first time I would highly recommend getting a private tour of the souks etc, you cannot go wrong. Our guide Omar was brilliant, he spoke excellent English and told us all about Marrakech and about the traders and workmen you see making things etc. He was good fun and we enjoyed his compan, he also helped when it came to bartering! If you do not have a guide you will get lost and you will miss out on seeing some key sights. The 3 hour tour was the highlight of our 5 day trip. Thank you Omar!

    Do not use I told Hassan Prior that I wanted to see where people lived and worked in the souks and tanneries but not to buy . Everywhere he took us we were pressurised to buy including by him . If we didn’t buy the owners ignored us . He told us no history as we walked and pointed out only things I had asked to see He tried several times to sell us his personal tour to the mountains . It was awkward . He walked ahead so fast we almost lost him A waste of money

    Ouidad is the prime jewel of our trip to Marrakech. She guided us trough the souks of Marrakech, without her we would surely be lost for the first time. She gave us amazing tips and perfect information about the history of Marrakech, her English was great and it was just very nice to be with her. Ouidad, we loved our time with you and thank you so much for the delicious olives you gave us, we loved them! We never felt more welcome in another country then with you!

    Aimad conducted a very interesting and informative tour. We learned a lot about the culture, traditions and history of the city. It is always nice to walk along the streets of the city with the local, we visited places that we ourselves would not find. We were always welcomed to make photos and ask lots of additional quiestions. Aimad is fluent in English, communication was easy and with humor. Thanks for a great time.

    We had an amazing time with Jaafar discovering Marrakech off the beaten tracks. Thank you for the warm welcome and great tour guide!

    I chose Jaafar as i have seen him from a You Tube video and was recommended by the vlogger. And i did not make a mistake of choosing him, there were 12 of us and all first timer in Marrakesh...Jaafar was so kind to pick us up from our hotel instead of waiting in the usual meeting place. He has a lot of patience especially with a big group like ours. He did accommodate every questions we had. We had seen Marrakesh as we wanted and i am pretty sure that we would not be able to do it on our own. A very caring guide and he also made sure that all of us were ok. I would recommend Jaafar to our friends when they travel to Marrakesh. He even helped us to have a refund for one couple who did not make it to our trip!!! Thanks a lot Jaafar. Good luck and God bless.

    Had a great half day private tour with Adil. He was very accommodating about the meeting location and was very knowledgeable about Marrakesh! He was flexible about what we saw, had great suggestions for alternatives and his English skills were terrific. We could not have started out our trip to Marrakesh with a better guide!

    We loved our cycle tour of Marrakesh with Omar - he was very warm and friendly as well as very informative. The cycle ride was so much fun through the crazy livelyliness of the streets. Thankyou Omar for a great time!

    Omar merci mille fois !! Gentillesse, humour , humanité ! Nous avons passés un moment remarquable en compagnie d'Omar qui nous a montré des endroits que les touristes n'osent pas fréquentés, par que ceux-ci sont souvent derrière des petites portes, des lieux que nous ignorons. Nous avons gouté un plat typique, des haricots blancs , que les travailleurs du souk mangent le matin, chose que nous n'aurions jamais fait seuls tant cela est peu "visible" pour les touristes. Omar nous a fait partagé beaucoup de sa ville mais aussi de ce qui constitue l'âme de Marrakech et nous a donné plein de conseils. Disponible, joyeux, très cultivé, nos deux filles sous le charme, la plus petite de 4 ans sur ses épaules. Un moment de réel partage humain ! Merci beaucoup Omar

    La visite de la ville avec Jaafar était absolument parfaite. Tout ce que nous avons demandé a été respecté dans les moindres détails... De 9h du matin à 17h nous avons parcourus Marrakech, avec un guide très cultivé, gentil et bienveillant... Je recommande vivement !!!
