My name is Az-eddine Ben Jouhra. I was born and raised in Marrakech and since 2001 that I work in the Tourism sector where I was able to hold several positions, I invite you to discover Marrakech and other cities of Morocco during guided tours. Best Kech Tours is the brand under which I work as a liberal guide. My visits are aimed at both individuals and organized groups. Passionate about heritage, I guide your steps in the city and help you to look at it, understand it and love it. In neighborhoods, as in monuments and museums, I am keen to offer you original routes, to show you these places from unusual angles. I hold a BTS in Hospitality and Tourist Animation from the Higher Institute of Tourism and Hospitality and a professional card of national guide, and I am a member of the Regional Association of Marrakech-Asfi Tourism Guides , and the National Federation of Tourist Guides.

About the tour

Historically, all souks were divided and laid out according to the separate commodities being made and sold. The most valuable products, such as gold and manuscripts, were positioned in the center of the main souk area with less expensive goods radiating out from there. Today, little has changed. Each souk is still named after the product being sold there, and aside from allowances for modern tastes, the goods on offer are still similar to how they would have been a thousand years ago.

The main artery of the souks is Souk Semmarine, a broad, covered alley that begins with pâtisserie and pottery, and moves into high-quality fabric and textiles shops. Traders here sell everything from kaftans to pashminas. There are also huge, expensive, tourist emporiums full of antiques, carpets and jewelry.
