Great tour of the Medina. Our guide, Mohamed, helped us to get a taxi back to our hotel after the tour which was a great relief to us! He was also very thoughtful of our 3 year-old child and checked in with us throughout the tour to make sure he was still doing well. The tour was very informative, interesting, and well worth it. We would recommend it!

Excellent experience. My flight was late for more than one hour and we waited a lot for passport control. I managed to send a message about the situation and they waited for us. A young nice woman drove us safely to the hotel.

Mohammed was amazing! He went out of his way to accommodate us and even helped us arrange a tuk tuk for our evening dining reservation. Highly recommemd! Love the traditional medicines visit!

Excellent from the collection to the hamming and massage. Spa was very good, relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended and very good value

I tend to focus on educational experiences and this is a 10/10.
