A group of five was waiting on the guide at the meeting point on time. The guide never showed up and accused us on being late. Cannot be trusted.

We had this tour booked and were at the meeting location 10 minutes ahead as was requested. There were also 3 other people from our group that we met at the location. We were all waiting for Mustapha ahead of 5PM but he did not show.

Mustapha was a wonderful guide! He was super friendly, knowledgeable, personable, and presented the information wonderfully. This tour was a great introduction into Morocco, and I’m grateful to have learned so much from Mustapha! We learned a lot about Morocco as a whole, the city of Marrakech, practices/customs of the Muslim people, interesting facts about Islam, information about the Berber people, information about their many languages, information about traditional medicines/spices, and so much more! This tour brought us to many interesting sights and gave us confidence to now explore the Medina more on our own after learning how to navigate it first with this tour. Highly recommend this tour! Thank you Mustapha!
