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.

About the Tour

This shopping experience in Marrakech goes far beyond a walk in a shopping center or time spent exploring a market. Shopping in Marrakech is an activity that runs alongside authentic everyday life, while also getting flavors of local culture and traditions. Join me on this 3-hour tour to explore a hidden district of Marrakech made up of artisans, artists, vendors, and artisans. Marrakech, for centuries, has been considered a traditional shopping center, where you will not be short of interesting local encounters. On this tour, you will immerse yourself in fascinating sights, smells, and lights. Discover open markets dedicated to the souvenir shop and elegant antique and carpet galleries, each with its own story. The tour also includes back streets, populated by hidden workshops and shops known only to locals. The tour accommodates all types of shopping tastes and can be customized to suit individual preferences and budgets. The experience ends where it begins, at Jamaa Elfna Square, an open-air theater where you can continue to stroll and enjoy a delicious meal, coffee, or even freshly squeezed orange juice from one of the quaint lined juice stands.

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: In front of the Poste Office ( Poste Du Maroc) located on the Jamaa El Fna square

Im so happy we saved our shopping until this tour at the end of our trip! Jalil took us around to see everything and anything we could have wanted. most of the shops he took us to gave us demonstrations (that was my favourite part!) he even taught us how to barter!

Don’t esitate to take this tour with Jalil if in Marrakech! If it is your first time in the country taking a tour is the best way to have a first take of contact with the culture which it might be a bit shocking/overwhelming at the beginning. He also showed us really cool places in the market (metal workers, fabric makers etc) we would have never seen if not. In general is the best way to just relax and enjoy the place.
