Khalid was an excellent and informative guide, who shared his knowledge and love of Morocco with us. He was patient and flexible, and did whatever he could to ensure that we saw and did whatever we wanted and had a good experience while he guided us. I really enjoyed visiting Essaouria and El Jadida with Khalid and would highly recommend him
