We were accompanied by an exceptional guide. Noureddine made us visit the whole Medina in its most characteristic parts with great passion, patience and truly creating a relationship of complicity with all of us, as if we had known each other for some time. He told us the history of the Muslim religion, passed on their deep faith, accompanied us to the most characteristic shops and helping us in the purchases, in the negotiations, always advising us in respect of the local people and ours. Truly an exceptional companion, dedicated to "his family" of the day, as he defines it. Nice to see him wander around the alleys and respectfully greet all the people he met or to whom he thought he was making a small gift. Nice to see his sweet ways with the children on the street ... he never skimped on a kiss on those little heads in search of a dime. It was a really profound experience. Thanks !!!

Very punctual early guide. Then we spent a great day, rich with a professional guide, sympathetic, not counting his time. In short, very beautiful person.
