    So happy I signed up for this tour. I will be back again next time I’m in Marrakech. Mr. Mohammed is a skilled craftsman and a great teacher. He showed me some skills and led me whilst I was making different pieces. I also met another craftsman who paints the pieces, and he was a good laugh. Last but not least, my tour guide, who went above and beyond making sure I was comfortable and really enjoying myself while working as a translator. If I could give more stars I would, I had an absolutely lovely time. I’ll be back

    Excellent experience. Helps to connect with local potters and understand how they live their lives with pottery while learning from the masters. The potter was incredible (Mr Mohamed) who is a tradesman for 50 years. Extremely patient and kind and we got to know him well. If we come back we will do this again.
