Mehdi was amazing and very knowledgeable! He was so flexible with what he wanted to show us and taking us around the Souks. 12 hours later, he were already recommending him to another family visiting Morocco. I would book another tour with him when we return to learn more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Emma. I appreciate your appreciations. It was wonderful meeting you and will be happy to meet you in Marrakech again

Mehdi was a simply fabulous guide and person. He was google knowledgable about everything related to Morocco. He has a superb way of sharing his knowledge and making it easy to understand the complexities of history, culture and religion. He was completely flexible as we changed the itinerary on him several times during the day. A pleasure to have him guide us in marrakesh.

El Medhi was a wonderful guide taking us on a mix of history, culture and shopping. The tour went very quickly which was a good sign of keeping us occupied throughout.

El Mehdi is an outstanding guide and a very interesting and charming person. His excellent knowledge about Marrakech, its history and culture allows him not only to show also more secret places, thereby increasing the pleasure, but also to create a good understanding of the city and the country at large. Listening to the specific wishes and needs of the client, he is ready to go the extra mile to satisfy his customer. I highly recommend the services of El Mehdi.

Two ladies with a shopping list, Mehdi was a great guide and we had a wonderful time. He knows where to find what you are looking for and he truly knows his way around the Medina. We could not have had a better experience.

Meet us at the Reid. Starting tour at the Mederssa Ben Youssef which featured Patti Birch's collection. Giving a brief knowledge of the place and allowed to explore each section. Visited through the craft section was an experience you don't want to miss. Ending the tour in the Square. Great for information and comfortable talking with. Shopping throughout.

Fantastic tour with an excellent guide! Mehdi was great, customizing the tour for me as we went along. I got a thorough tour that highlighted my interests, and he made sure that I was not overcharged for anything while we were together. I highly recommend Medhi as a tour guide for anyone who wants to really experience Marrakech with a local perspective.
You get so much confidence negotiating the alleys with a guide who can take you to great stalls, explain the history and introduce you to incredible artisans. It was an enjoyable day, the old, the new and the hidden secrets all in one tour. Thanks El Mehdi

If you want to be shown all of the hidden secrets, interesting architecture, and find out about the history of the Medina in Marrakech then you must book with El Mehdi, everything about the tour was perfect. The places he showed us and the pace of the tour was exactly what we requested, plus he was very flexible and was able to adjust the tour as we went along. Had a very enjoyable time!

El Mehdi was an excellent guide and very educated about the city and culture. He maximized our time and we saw everything in a single day. We felt the tour covered all the highlights and gave us lots of pictures from this amazing city. He customized our souk shopping to what we wanted and didn't waste any of our day. Overall highly recommend El Mehdi.
Greate Guide & Tour! Mehdi is a very charismatic personability and extremely knowledgeable about Marrakech. He knows very well how to identify and address your personal preferences when it comes to the tour planning. He covered all the spots/shopping interests that we had and only gave tips which were addressing our preferences! The guide also does a great job in shielding you from fake shopping spots / items (in Marrakesh everything is sold as "number one" and "handmade" even if it is not).

Didn't see the Berber village, the Toubkal museum was closed for renovations. The tour consisted of lots of driving, one scenic view for photos, a stop for coffee, a bottle of water, a trek to the waterfall with a glass of orange juice. Back to the hotel. Back at the hotel by 2pm, not a full day tour, not what I was expecting, definitely not worth the money. I suggest a refund is needed!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrew, Thank you for sharing your thought of the tour with us. I feel sorry if you didn’t enjoy it fully. Yes the Museum was closed as you have seen with your eyes in the paper written in front of the door and confirmed by the security on site. And Yes we walked through some Berber villages on our hike ( We took 2 hours hike ) The reason your day was shortened is: You have no interest to stop for lunch ( traditionally it takes about 1h15. Also no stops for craft cooperatives. Kind regards
Andrew BeaumontUnited Kingdom
Had a substitute guide as Mehdi had something better to do. Back at my hotel by 2pm, not the full day advertised! The shops I was taken to were very expensive and I later learned I was completely ripped off. I have to wonder what 'commission' the guide took. Not up to expectations and not worth the money. Perhaps need a partial refund?
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Andrew for your thoughts again. I kindly asked you ( and you kindly accept my idea rather than to cancel the tour) that I have an urgent invitation for the election of our president in the guiding organization so nothing better than to take the tour at all. The second side of your message I will talk to Rachid the guide and hear his story about what you purchased with him and get back to you the soonest. Kind regards

El Mehdi was excellent. Very organized , knowledgeable and a pleasant personality.., We had a great day with him! He is worth 5 plus stars!!!
El Mehdi was very knowledgeable and a pleasant guide. We began at Al Badhi Palace and from there visited a synagogue. We were supposed to visit the Jewish cemetery but it was closed for Passover - something we were disappointed about, but were immediately offered the chance to see it another day with a taxi picking us up from our hotel and taking us there. Overall a good tour, just wish the guide had not been on his phone so much. When he wasn't, it was great to ask him questions.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Deborah for your prompt and honest review. Indeed i was on the phone that day and 2 calls were related to our tour to see if the Synagogue was open because of Easter holidays and to make sure that The Badii Palace is open as it will be used and closed during the " Dior 2019 Show " in Marrakech Again i apologize for any inconveniences and I feel releaved that you liked the tour in general. Thanks again! Mehdi

Our tour with Mehdi was absolutely wonderful. He was kind, informative, patient, and helpful. He has an extensive knowledge of the history and culture of Marrakech and was able to tailor our tour to fit our needs. We are a family with two young children, and he made sure to include them and to point out things that they would find interesting. He even recommended a little hidden garden cafe where we could stop to give the kids a rest. We would recommend a tour with Mehdi to anyone visiting Marrakech.
Mehdi was very competent, and considerate of my 90 year old mother's needs walking around the souk. He was able to find all of our diverse and specific shopping objectives! A very busy and successful morning.
We had a great walking tour with Mehdi - highly recommended! My husband has mobility issues and he was very sensitive to that and he helped a great deal. We enjoyed many different foods while in the souk and had very interesting conversations. Thank you Mehdi for a great day!

Mehdi was fantastic! He was thoughtful, adaptable, interesting, and really knows Marrakech very, very well. We were a group of 7 people and he truly made our tour interesting for all of us. He also suggested a restaurant for lunch that was so good we had lunch there the following day too. Very highly reccomended!
Andrew SmithUnited Kingdom
We had a wonderful day - a great guide, a great trip, and so, so informative. I highly recommend El Medhi. He and the driver (Abdul) were professional, kind, knowledgable, and it has been the highlight of our trip so far. Thank you so much for your kindness and your humour! Don't book a different trip. Book this one!!!
El Mehdi ist ein sehr angenehmer, gebildeter und gelassener Guide, der sich mit den Gegebenheiten in Marrakesh gut auskennt. Er hat auf unsere Bedürfnisse Rücksicht genommen und die Tour dementsprechend ausgerichtet. El Mehdi war verlässlich in der Kommunikation und spricht fließend Englisch.

5 star guide! Mehdi, our guide in Marrakech, emailed us immediately when we booked our tour. He reconfirmed and was right on time to pick us up at our riad. Being a local, Mehdi knew everything about Marrakech history, the people and traditions. Our guided tour through the Medina was fantastic. Mehdi brought us to places inside the Medina we would never have found on our own - like a traditional old bakery hidden away in an old building that looked abandoned. We were stunned to walk through the narr

Fantastic experience. Guide was really lovely. Knew his stuff and was happy to wander at our pace, letting us look at things and answer our questions as they arose. Certainly added value to our visit.
