I organized a custom tour of Marrakech with Hamza. He took the time to see where I had been so far and found a day filling itinerary of stuff to see which I would have never ever had the chance to explore on my own my way. We saw a few fantastic monuments and hidden gems in areas of the town which I had not been to before. Especially the area entering via Puerta de Bab Agnaou towards the Jewish part of town was a great discovery. Between sights we hopped in taxis or walked. I saw great architecture and beautiful gardens and traditional city market life. But in the end, what I enjoyed most was our conversations. Hamza is a great gentleman and fantastic conversation partner with deep knowledge of his town. Ah, and we had great great food as well. :) I will definitely give Hamza a ring when I'm back in town.

This was a wonderful day walking around the sights and souk of Marrakech with Hamza. And as a bonus we got to try some wonderful local delicacies . We saw things that we'd never have seen on the main tourist track and had the personal benefit of his years of passionate connection with this wonderful city. Highly Recommended

Do not book small tours to the city before checking these guys. Make it the first ones to book before anything else as you will be saving money. They cover the lot and their guides are well trained people with a lot of knowledge of the city. We had the luck of having the best of them: Jaouad Haichar. He is more like a Marrakeshan encyclopaedia. There are loads of guides in Marrakesh but none like Jaouad Haichar

We had a week in Marrakech. The walking tour with Hamza was fabulous. He showed us places where the tourists don't go. A tiny bakery, we had lunch - eating lamb grilled in an oven underground. Learning about the riads, old Marrakech history and getting answers to questions about islam, local habits an so on. We are so grateful to Hamza.

Terrible is probably too generous. If you do take this tour ask for Hamsa as all the good reviews we were swayed by are for him. We were able to meet our guide Abdul easily at the Poste in Jemaa El-Fnaa, however he never displayed any identification or asked for our voucher - should this have been our first warning sign? We then confirmed as noted in our booking that one of our group (of two) has a vegetarian diet - well this really threw him into a spin. Abdul knew his way around the souks and the history of the Medina but little about the food history and culture or the food and ingredients - there was more time spent at a Herborist trying to be sold argan oil and massages or at a Berber carpet maker, again trying to be sold a carpet. We may have tasted less than half of what what described in the overview - we had to stop Abdul in the souk to ask about the pastries we were passing and ate lamb at the place next door to the best place in the souks for lamb! Our tagine was at a western food hall and really quite bland. So disappointing! We also did another food tour while in Marrakech (both booked in advance, before we'd left home) Flavours of Marrakech: 10 Tastings Private Food Tour which lived up to everything promised even though it had only one not so favourable review.
