This workshop was great fun, highly interactive and well organised. A ‘translator’ met us at a central place, and took us to the venue - that was appreciated, because I doubt we would have found it otherwise!! The instructor was well organised, had templates and material ready and we felt well catered and prepared for. The amount of work that goes into a slipper was a real eye-opener, and certainly gave us a new appreciation of the instructor’s work. Our translator was hardly necessary as our instructor had a good grasp of English, but we enjoyed very much her input into the conversation. Overall, this was a top experience that I would highly recommend. We left very proud of our new slippers!!!
Omar was our guide and he was courteous, polite and really friendly. He tailored our tour round the souks to take in some sights we were interested in, not just the main stalls but places where the craftsmen were making their goods......the leather workers, metalworkers etc. Also where the locals buy their provisions and where they live etc. He was very patient with us whilst we took loads of photos and asked loads of questions! He was an excellent guide and we highly recommend him. Thank you Omar!
Had a bit of a hiccup to start - my booking didn’t show on their system so I didn’t get picked up. But GetYourGuide has excellent customer service and they got in touch with the tour provider who was very apologetic and professional about it all. The manager arranged another tour guide for me and the tour was great! He had a lot of information about the city and took me around both the popular tourist areas as well as the inner-city alleys. Would definitely recommend the tour!
Great couple of hours scooting round the city. I was on my own and very well looked after by my guide, who always turned left before me making sure traffic behind knew where we were going - not a given with drivers here. Kasbah, Royal Palace, and newer areas north of the Medina were all seen and I recommend this if you would like a few interesting and fun hours
Excellent opportunity to learn sitting next to a master in a small group situation. He was able to teach to our interest and also to our ability. I learnt so much, coming away feeling inspired and grateful for the privilege of the opportunity provided.
