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

Khalid is an EXCELLENT guide. His knowledge of Marrakech and Moroccan history is vast and impressive. We learned so much from him that day and enjoyed his company very much. He knew we were interested in Jewish history so he spent extra time with us in the Mellah and gave us a lot of information about Moroccan Jewish history - we learned a great deal from him and had an even greater appreciation for Morocco after our time with Khalid. I would strongly recommend him to others.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you a lot.

We just got back from our tour to Morocco. We were a group of 12 people and we had a lot of issues with sickness. We all were sick with viral and Khalid from tours by locals was a huge blessing. We had to change our plans on the fly and that was not an issue for Khalid. His vehicle was very comfortable. He is a very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Khalid.

Thanks, Khalid, for a great experience! Even though we had already started to explore the market a bit on ourselves before the tour, Khalid showed us many hidden places that we never had found without hin in the huge labyrinth of small alleys. The guide was very nice, friendly and knowledgeable. And - important for us - we never felt obliged to buy anything anywhere. Clearly recommended!

Our guide Khalid was absolutely wonderful. We only had a couple days in Marrekech, and he was a perfect escort to navigate the souks and explain it's history. He was so well informed, having grown up in the medina. His English was perfect, well educated and full of valuable insights. Patient and helpful. A great companion and highly recommended.

Khalid did an excellent job. I am interested in history of Portugal and Spain but had never visited Morrocco. He helped give me some context of what the many movements of people and migrations of people of Morrocco (Moors, Andaluzians, etc) to Spain and Porugal and back and to understand the archetecture. One of the best walking tours every.

Khalid is a professor or Moroccan history in a guide's body. Erudite and fluent, he was the ultimate professional. His wonderful walking tour of the Marrakech medina was well-planned and executed, which gave me a concise and interesting history of the places we were visiting. I had already spent several days in Morocco, but Khalid brought everything I had already seen into perfect focus with his historical background. Khalid is the best guide I've ever had, anywhere.

I took the walking tour of the Medina with Khalid in the morning, and then we joined up after lunch for a tour of the souks. It was fabulous. Besides a great tour of all the alleys and byways of the ultimate medieval shopping experience, when I told Khalid that I was shopping for a new home, he confessed that he had grown up in the souks, and then took me to all of the really GOOD places. This was not tourist crap. We visited craftsmen and artisans who are the best at their craft. It was fabulous.

On our first visit to Marrakech we spent the day with the charming, eloquent and knowledgable Khalid. While taking in all the sights, the day was relaxed and informative with Khalid gently keeping us on piste while indulging all our requests and answering every question. He is a true ambassador for this exotic city, met with handshakes and good wishes wherever we were - an A * recommendation.

Khalid was professional, informative without being too long, very helpful in showing us the best transport to use. The way he showed us the sights and history helped us understand Marrakech much better. He also helped us find things we specifically had on our "to see" list. In following days we still managed to get lost in the Souks but were able to remember where Khalid had taken us and find our way out.

Khalid gave my friend and I an excellent relaxed tour of the souks and really tailored it to what we wanted to do. In fact, after the souk tour, he helped us find where our hammam baths were and showed us around the Saadian Tombs since we had the time. He gave us great information about the history of the city and the souks and answered all our questions about the government and religion. He is even a great story teller! We had a great time, thanks Khalid!

We decided to start our week in Marrakech with a souk tour with Khalid. Even if it has been my fourth time in Marrakech, so I knew the city a bit, it was the best decision we could have made. Khalid guided us to wonderful spots and places, told us interesting stories and caught up instantly, what we want to see and what kind of information we were interested in. Due to his time where he lived abroad, he has an excellent sophisticated knowledge about his country. We would always again book a tour with him.

Khalid is extremely knowledgeable and a genuinely great person. No one in our group could communicate in French or Arabic and we definitely needed a guide. Khalid went above and beyond our expectations to show us all of Marrakech and a great glimpse of the Atlas mountains in 1.5 days. Everything ran according to plan and Khalid got us out of bad situations with hustlers, snakes/monkeys in the square, good places to eat, etc. Highly recommended!!!!

Khalid was fantastic!! Ive traveled the world & almost always use private tour guides & I can honestly say that Khalid is among the very best! He seemed to have connections in each one of the souks we visited & was able to get us access to the back side of the souks which is rarely seen by tourists. He informed us culturally, gastronomically & historically & was happy to answer our questions. We are 2 women in our late 30's & highly recommend Khalid! He was just amazing!

Khalid was our guide on our first day in Marrakesh. The official tour started in the afternoon to end at the El Fma square in the evening, but it suited us better to going with a tour in the morning and Khalid was happy to accomodate us. His standard tour didnt take in the tanneries but he was happy again to be flexible on this. He arrived on time, and thru the day was was very professional, friendly and informative. We had our 2 kids with and he was very patient and let us go at our own pace.

Khalid was wonderful! He was extremely helpful and professional. I arranged for my own tour and was picked up at the airport. He waited for me even though I took almost an hour longer once I landed since I had to go through passport control. Either way, he was up and ready to greet me and begin the tour. His knowledge of all the places we visited was incredible. There was so much to learn and so many interesting things that I had to take notes and pictures of whatever he pointed to. I highly reccomend him
