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.

My girlfriend and I just got back from our trip to Morocco which included a few hour tour of the medina in Marrakech with Mehdi. We truly had a great time with him as he showed up on time, was extremely friendly and accommodating to our requests, spoke perfect English and offered great insights into the lives, culture and religion of the Moroccan people and life in the medina. Thank you Mehdi for a great tour! chris

This was an excellent introduction to the Souks and to Moroccan history and culture. We were able to stop and shop at will with excellent inputs from El Mehdi. The tour was the perfect length and was exactly what we were hoping for. The tour allowed us to revisit the souks without getting lost later on in the week.

Really nice morning spent with a very knowledgable guide exploring the medina of Marrakech and the various souks. All questions were answered in great detail and I got exactly what I hoped from it the day. Thank you El Mehdi!

Absolutely wonderful! On our first trip to Morocco we were very blessed to be able to have Mehdi show us the sights of Marrakech. We are seasoned travelers and have had many private tours all over the world and have to say that he is just A+++++. Great knowledge of history, art, culture and food! Was absolutely flexible in putting together a special tour for us tailored to exactly what we wanted to experience. Just fantastic in every way!

Arabella ArcuragiUnited Kingdom
Mehdi was a great guide! My boyfriend and I had a tour of some of the souks and sights in the medina with Mehdi; it was our first time in Marrakech, and we were not sure what we wanted to see or what to expect. Mehdi planned a perfect tour for us, gave us plenty of information about the history of the city, and also catered our tour of the souks to the types of things we wanted to see. He also recommended a great restaurant & had a carpet we bought delivered to our hotel! Great guide, & we will come back!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Arabella for your kind words. I am honored to met your expectations. Enjoy your stay in Marrakech! Mehdi
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Julia. It was a big pleasure to share with you Moroccan traditions, craft heritage and culture. I wish good success in your Russian Travel Project. Mehdi

Jay MillerUnited States
El Mehdi was very knowledgeable and helpful. It was essential to have a guide in the medina, otherwise we would have been totally lost. Being in the medina was a fabulous experience and we learned and absorbed a lot from El Mehdi. (In fact, we tried to book him for the next day, but he was not available.)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Mr Jay. It was a big pleasure to share my knowledge of the Medina and Souks of Marrakech with you and your wife. I am glad you enjoyed both The Tour & my company
Cristina ValenciaUnited States
Marrakech is an amazingly beautiful and interesting place. On our own we would never have been able to see a fourth of what El Mehdi was able to show us. El Mehdi was extremely professional and welcoming, sharing information about all aspects of Marrakech, historical and current. El Mehdi clearly has established strong relationships with individuals in the community which allowed us to see places that likely would not have otherwise been available to us. I strongly recommend El Mehdi and his tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Cristina for your review of our tour. I am glad you enjoyed your short trip to Marrakech and we will always be happy to design your Moroccan Tours here on ToursByLocals. I can still remember The roof Terrace tea overlooking the square we shared together just before sunset. Amazing!
John BowersUnited States
We had a wonderful time with Mehdi touring the Medina with all of its enchanting souks and narrow alleys. Mehdi expertly guided us through the maze of twisting corridors providing insight and knowledge that helped explain hundreds of years of life in the Medina. We ended with an optional lunch that was purchased from many of the food stalls around the Medina.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, It was a great pleasure to meet you and your wife and spend the 3 days both in Marrakech and around. Not much compares to a succesful tour experience where happy travelers like yourslef would recommend Tours By Locals and my services through it. I appreciate your appreciations! Mehdi
