A Recent Review of this tour

Mehdi is one of the most knowledgeable guides we have ever experienced on a city tour of any city in the world. He takes pleasure in taking these tours and has an immense pride in the city and the country as a whole. It is the only way to see the souks in the medina without getting totally lost in the maze of alleys and be totally overwhelmed by the stall owners. Mehdi helped us negotiate a fair deal for both a carpet and a silver teapot and made lovely suggestions for places to eat and to experience.
