    Pretty good tour overall. The tour guide was pretty accommodating to what we wanted to see and not wanted to see. He seemed kind of uninterested and disengaged at times, but to be fair, we were busy taking photos during those times.

    Ahmed--the actual guy managing all the bookings for this company was very on top of things. He responded quickly to all the inquiries. We ended up booking airport transfer with this company also. Sayed was a wonderful driver and great conversationalist.

    Excellent private tour through Fes. Our guide was prompt, friendly, and very knowledgable. There were shopping/informative stops at a ceramics place, carpet co-op, and leather goods store were you could get a rooftop view of the tannery, but it wasn't high pressure to buy. Highly recommend this tour.

    This is worth it! We began the tour in a van to see the Blue door and other sites outside of the old city and then walked for the rest of the day. With two kids in tow we thought it would become too much for them but they remained interested throughout the day. Our guide, Idriss, was wonderful! He is a local and knew his way around the medina shockingly well! He took us to all the important historic sites, the various craft shops, the tannery, and all the different kind of souks. We made several stops to learn about each place and with interactive components for us and the kids no one got tired or bored. We didn't stop for lunch even though he suggested it but the pace was manageable. Without a local guide it would be very difficult to appreciate all the fascinating aspects of Fes. Highly recommended!

    Our fez guided tour with this tour operator was fascinating. We were overwhelmed with the cozy atmosphere of the old medina along with it's long history. Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable, he provided us with information we wouldn't have found on our own. The guide took us to many famous attractions Al Qarawiyin University, Mederasa, Bab Boujloud.... and spoke to us about the story of each of the main historical monuments. We were also so amazed with the Islamic Moroccan architecture and the details of the Arab Mosaic. The guide was also open to answering all the questions we had about Morocco and the Islamic civilisation. I totally recommend this trip. Thanks M.Said for arranging this tour for us.
