For those of you who've never been to Marrakech or stayed in the Medina it's difficult to understand the overwhelming initial feeling of "I'll never find my way around - ever!" All we can say to you is "be sure to take Rachid's Walking Tour of the Medina and you'll be fully prepared for every eventuality". We were 9 ladies... More

We had a great tour with Rachid. He was the perfect guide. He answered so many of my random questions, and took great care of us. It did not feel as if we were on tour, more as if we were hanging out with a friend. Wished we did this tour on our first day, it would had made a... More

After arriving quite late the night before and realising just how difficult it would be to find our way around the Medina, we decided that a guided walking tour would be the best way to familiarise ourselves with Marrakech. The highlight of the tour is definitely the walk through the souks, from the leather auction to the workshops and where... More

My mum recommended Rachid, who she had done a walking tour with earlier in the year. He had lots of knowledge on a variety of things and doesn't stick to a script, he is happy to answer any random questions you have. I would agree that he speaks quietly, but as there were only two of us it was fine,... More

We booked Rachid on line before our visit and are glad we did . We had a private tour and it was superb , there are places that you simply could not find on your own . The work shops behind the medina are like a time warp . He speaks a little quietly but ask him to speak up... More

We had been given Rashid as a reference by friends who visited Marrakesh a year ago. Our pre trip research found reviews of the organization to be good and the pricing fair. We communicated with Rashid via email - which was fast and efficient. He responded promptly. Our stay was such a success due to him - his knowledge and... More

A very good and informative tour and as outlined, Rachid, doesn't directly take you to places where he might get commission from any of his client's sales.

Our day with Rachid guiding us around the Medina was a hilight of our stay in Marrakech (the other hilight being a camel ride and visit to the waterfall.) Myself, my daughter (9) and my son (16) were keen to learn about the 'true'Marrakech and we found his tour to be very interesting, informative and enlightening. Rachid tailored our tour... More

Rachid arrived at our riad promtly and well dressed. It's clear when meeting Rachid that he is nice guy and also well educated speaking many languages including Japanese! There was 4 of us on the tour and we all enjoyed it. We choose this tour as this was a stictly non shopping tour (although Rachid was happy to tell us... More
