    The guide's English was a little difficult to understand, went on a little bit too much on certain historical aspects. The sights were good didn't need the herbalist shop visit towards the end.

  • 10-Dec-2017

    Unorganized. Rushed.

  • 09-Dec-2017

    The tour proceeded in a downpour. No consideration was given to reschedule as you could not leave the taxi. Complete waste of time.

    This tour was not the best, but good enough to get you familiar with the area to later go sightseeing on your own. I felt the tour guide didn't give a lot of information and didn't see a whole lot. However it was just ok to me.

    Great tour, lovely efficient guide. Monuments were beautiful and the history fully explained. There was a bit of walking which was great as it took you through non touristic parts outside the medina wall. We stopped at a cake shop to sample some of the local cakes. Also stopped for lunch at a designated restaurant which had a mixture of tourist and locals there. The food was actually some of the best I had in Morocco and you were able to enjoy wine with your meal which is rare in the medinas in Morocco. The pace of the tour was quite relaxed and the length perfect. Also one person was not picked up due to a mix up and the tour guide changed the schedule slightly to allow her to join the tour pretty much from the start which I thought was excellent service.

    Very nice! Our tour guide was fun and knowledgeable. His English was clear and I was happy he showed us some shops where my mother, sisters and I were able to get some natural products for the hair and skin.
