What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give €10 per person, some people give US‎$ 50, you choose the price.

Suggested Tips:

Please understand that this tour is organized by an official tour guide approved by the Moroccan Minister of Tourism.
This is my only job and I don't do it just for fun or as a side job, but with a lot of enthusiasm and love, I got my master's degree in tour guiding because, in Morocco, it is illegal to take a tour without going to university to get the official tour guide license.
In the city of Tangier, all official tour guides are members of the local association of licensed guides and they are required to respect the minimum fee per person which is 100 MDH = 10 euros for this type of tour.

Unlike other destinations in the country, the tours in Tangier are entirely focused on culture and history, and no shopping stops are included to get commissions, but I can help you to buy everything you want at the best price/quality and also help you on planning your vacation in Morocco and if you plan to visit other cities after visiting Tangier, I will give you all the tips and information about transportation in Morocco (Taxis, Bus, Train) and even other plans you can do during your stay in Tangier and the best restaurants in the city, so please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

- I can also organize the tour for you if you are interested in doing the tour at a different time than the one mentioned "11 am".

The culture, traditions
, and charm of Tangier are here dear customers!
I can't wait to meet you and help you to discover my beautiful city Tangier!

Achraf es uno de los mejores guías turísticos que hemos tenido en todos nuestros viajes. Aporta una combinación perfecta de conocimiento histórico y cultural, combinado con ingenio y humor, para que el recorrido de 2,5 horas sea educativo y divertido. Todo aquel que visite Tánger por primera vez debería aprovechar la introducción de Achraf a la riqueza tanto de la ciudad como de Marruecos.

Achraf was fantastic. He took us through heaps of areas I never would have discovered without him, such as markets and passageways. Finding the community baker was a real plus. Highly recommend this tour for an overview of Tangier's history and a dive into the local culture. Thank you!

Benamar gave us a very thorough and comprehensive tour of Tangier in three hours! It was a lot of walking and information, but incredibly informative. He covered a lot about the kasbah and the medina. Would highly recommend!
