Hassan was an amazing guide. On another tour, we did a small part of the medina but Hassan showed us much much more. He was very eager to please us and to attend to our interests and needs. We highly recommend. Very happy with our experience. Thank you Hassan.

Explanations at the beginning, then promotional sales event in the medina

After interesting explanations at the beginning, the tour turned out to be a sales event in the medina: the guide took us to his carpet retailers and perfume buddies. After almost three of the four hours, he asked us what we would like to see. He should know that! When we asked for suggestions, he just shrugged. We then ended the misery. And felt very ripped off. The announced bottle of water did not exist either.
