Excellent tour with Mohamad! Very knowledgeable and he took me to parts of the city that I hadn’t already explored! I usually do freetours wherever I go and the one Mohamad gave me around Tétouan is one of the best I've ever done. I was able to get to know the city in depth because the tour focuses also on the less crowded and touristy areas, which makes it much more authentic. He gave me a lot of information, curiosities and recommendations. I highly recommend Mohamad

Das war eine wunderbare Tour und Mohamad hat soviel Freude beim erzählen und beantwortet gerne Fragen. Er hat sich sehr meinen Wünschen angepasst, so hatte ich ein exzellentes Essen in einem Restaurant, dass ich selbst nie gefunden hätte und einen wunderbaren traditionellen Tee. Außerdem hat er mir sehr geholfen Besorgungen auf dem Markt zu machen - Gemüse, Obst, Datteln, Tee und alles was ich sonst noch nicht kannte. Lieben Dank für Deine Zeit und Deine Mühe!
