Our family walking tour of the Medina with Rachid was one of the highlights of our 6-day visit to Marrakech. He met us at our Riad at 9:00 am and proceeded to immerse us in the area's history and culture in excellent English. The tour included admission to Bahia Palace, but since our family had already visited it, Rachid was flexible and guided us through the El Badii Palace, which much older and undergoing restoration. He introduced us to some of the local fruit, which we wouldn't have tasted on our own. The flavors were totally new to us and were thoroughly enjoyed! Rachid also treated us to tea and pastries at a local bakery for a mid-morning break. During the second half of the tour Rachid lead us through the many twists and turns of the Medina's many passageways, showing us areas where many craftsmen were busy producing their goods. His enthusiasm for his city was contagious and we congratulate him for having been awarded a degree in Sustainable Tourism. Rachid was also very open to all kinds of questions. We would highly recommend his tour for everyone interested in history and in gaining current knowledge about the often-times intense culture of the Medina. Many thanks to Rachid for our wonderful tour on 29 Dec!
