Our tour guide was knowledgeable and pleasant; but we spent the majority of the tour sitting and listening to sales pitches from various vendors. That's obviously not what we wanted.

My Fes tour with Mohamed was the highlight of my visit. His attentive guidance ensured we experienced all the city's main attractions, while personalising it enough for us to enjoy specific aspects of the city we wanted to experience. He showed great care and constantly checked in with us to ensure we were enjoying our experience. I could not recommend Mohamed enough.
