Rashid our guide was very knowledgeable and informative. He showed to us and explained many sites in the Essouria Medina that we would not of seen on our own. Great English spoken combined with a sense of humour to keep the conversation interesting. We would highly recommend this tour.

Zain was a brilliant guide and took us to some wonderful spots and gave us good advice with regard to shopping! We would highly recommend this tour . We went on the morning one which meant the town was much less crowded. Lovely man !
