Hello! My name is Jalil, I come from a multicultural background and speak Arabic, Berber, French and English. I love my job as licensed English speaking guide offering tours all over my country but mainly in my hometown Marrakech where I was born, studied and spent all my life. I really enjoy helping people get the best out of their trips in Marrakech, which I believe to be one of the best cities in the world. Such a wonderful city has always so much to explore. I have more than 13 years of passionate experience as a guide, leading all kinds of local experiences and walking tours together with side day- excursions. I work hard to get my guests immersed in my Moroccan rich culture giving them full insight into the history of the city, traditions of the Moroccan people and making them taste delicious food and feel the Moroccan hospitality. I also love meeting new people and different cultures. I can take you wherever you want or I can recommend you some schedules to discover less frequented trails and invisible hidden sides of this imperial city. I am an excited and energetic tour guide with a greedy appetite for everything to do with the buzzing medina (historical part). I meticulously organize cultural, historical, shopping and photography tours. Being interested in photography, we can walk through the medina and take some incredible photos.

Tour description

This tour is more than just a visit to the medina, it starts in the vibrant Jamaa Elfna square and covers different neighborhoods of this Imerial city. We will visit the Koutoubia minaret and the kasbah ( Royal district) before walking through the narrow streets of the medina to the Jewish quarter. The tour includes a visit of the Bahia Palace and goes back through a beautiful walk to  Jamaa Elnfa Square.

I can’t recommend Jalil highly enough!! He was fun, informative, very knowledgeable. He answered all our many questions with patience, even when he had already answered them before!! Thank you so much Jamil, you certainly made my Marrakesh visit memorable!! Sally

Hicimos la reserva la mañana misma porque nos canceló otro guía de guru. Nos llegó la confirmación automática, pero en la hora y lugar del encuentro no había nadie. Luego nos escribió para decirnos que lamentablemente no había visto la reserva. Lo entendimos porque fue una reserva al último minuto y era temprano por la mañana. Mi recomendación es que no ponga la confirmación automática para evitar esta situación.

The Guide, Jilal, canceled the tour a few hours before the scheduled walk. And this only because we wrote to him on a different topic. There seem to be other similar reviews about this guide, so I do not inow why he is still allowed on guruwalk.
