Yesterday we were able to experience an exciting and impressive guided tour through the medina of Marrakech! Mohammed showed us the culinary diversity of Morocco. At the same time, the food tour is also ideal to get a first impression of the medina with all its alleys and to learn exciting backgrounds. Highly Recommended!

Superb experience! Thanks to our guide Abdel-J. who was extraordinary for his knowledge and professionalism. The places chosen by our guide were very pretty. In addition, the visit being private, we were able to take the opportunity to really discuss. I highly recommend!
