About one week before leaving to Morocco, we agreed by email with Said on an afternoon tour through the very centre of Marrakech, that is the Medina and the Souks. Indeed, we had never been before in Morocco and we were a bit reluctant in wandering alone on the very first day of our travel.
Said picked up at our Riad at 2.30pm, perfectly in time. He lead us to the Koutoubia, the main city square, the Bahia palace, the Coranic school, and through a very long tour in the colourful souks labirynth (about 3.30 hours in total). Very competent, very friendly, very rich of all possible details, Said answered all our questions not only on the history and the monuments, but also on what is living in Marrakech nowadays.
Thanks again, Said, for that very nice afternoon.

We booked Said last minute and we are so happy we did that! He took us on a six hour walking tour of Marrakech and was so well informed on the history of the city that we felt like historians ourselves after the time with him. He then arranged camel tours after (for a fee) which saved us so much time having to arrange this ourselves. He was so nice and flexible, allowing us 5 girls time for plenty of pictures and lunch. He knew what we found interesting and what to go through faster. We saw the Madrasa, the Bahia Palace, the Mellah, the Saadian tombs, the main square, the market, and more. He gave us advice on what to eat and what not to eat. He met us and dropped us off at the doors of our hostel. He is obviously very experienced and worth 85 euros for five people. It was one of the most affordable tours out there.

Even though we booked our tour last minute, Said was very accommodating. He met us at our hostel and led us through the city of Marrakech, explaining in depth the history of Morocco and all of the monuments we went to. We started at the Bahia Palace, walked through the Mellah (Jewish quarter), viewed the Saadian tombs, walked through the market, passed by the Royal Palace, entered in the Madastra Ben Youssef and saw the Koutoubia Mosque. He took us to a great and cheap restaurant for lunch, then we finished with a camel ride in La Palmeraie. He was an excellent tour guide and told us so much of Moroccan history! He will answer all your questions and has many good recommendations. I would definitely recommend him for anyone looking to learn about the history and culture of this magnificent city.

We had a free morning after arriving back from the desert the night before. With a 2 pm flight to Geneva, we had to start our tour early. Said had been engaged through Wild Morocco, the tour company that had arranged our trip to the desert, and was waiting for us in the lobby of our Riad at 7:50, ready for our 8 am start. Most of the attractions were not yet open, but while we walked to the mosque we got a very helpful history of Morocco over the past several centuries, which helped us to understand what we were seeing. As it turned out, the king was visiting the city that day, which provided an opportunity for Said to talk about more recent events.

We had an excellent tour through several of the highlights of the old city, selected by Said, visited in an order that avoided all of the usual line-ups that might be expected. Said demonstrated remarkable patience as we concluded our visit in a couple of souvenir stores in the Souk. Overall, an excellent experience. This was just a 3 hour tour, but was very worthwhile.

We spent the morning with Said on the first day of our holiday and he really made our visit to Marrakech. Said is a very experienced guide who really knows his profession - he is an interesting person who takes time to understand your needs, and will add information relevant to you. His knowledge of history is amazing - and his descriptions are detailed enough to understand the background of the places visited.

We look forward to revisiting Marrakech and would consider using Said again - he comes very highly recommended.
