Mustapha is a very knowledgeable tour guide and we felt safe and comfortable with him showing us around. I would highly recommend if you want to get an authentic feel for the Souk. I would say however that all the stalls we were taken to were extremely expensive and there was no help on the bargaining like we had expected. It was a great experience to not get lost (easily done), feel safe, learn more and find the highest quality retailers, but if you're looking for bargains then this isn't the right tour for you!

We did this tour with Youssef Kharroubi and it was an amazing experience! We met him late Sunday morning in the main square and ran through our list of items we wanted to buy, with the big ticket item being a quality rug. We really pushed Youssef's patience with this one because it took 1.5 hours to find the lovely rug we ended up purchasing. Youssef took us to the best rug stores with authentic Berber rugs. He knew when to just walk out of a store, even when it made me uncomfortable. And he helped negotiate a great deal for us! After that, the rest was easy trinkets and he showed us ALL over the souks. It was a wondrous whirlwind of twists and turns through the medina alleys as Youssef expertly led us exactly where we needed to go. At the end of the tour, he even gave us a great lunch recommendation that turned out to be amazing. I highly recommend this tour for anyone short on time or intimidated by the craziness of the souks! REQUEST YOUSSEF!
