Mohammad made our visit Marrakesh very special. His easy going attitude and flexibility exceeded our expectations. He was knowledgeable able to recommend areas of interest that we would not have known existed and that allowed us able to make the most of our limited time. We highly recommend Mohammad and Tours by Locals.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear Henry : Thank you so much for your good feedback. I am so happy to hear that you have enjoyed your tour. All of you were so adorable.I loved and enjoyed in my turn all the time i had spent with you. It was nice to meet youI wish you a good health and happy life .Best wishes.

And a great guide who looked after us really well my five-year-old son became the Prince of the market being shown sights and sounds that you can only imagine. Very informative about the whole area taking us through and making us feel extremely safe. Even with a young five-year-old we didn't feel harassed pushed or scared it was a fantastic experience all round and would highly recommend anyone to do it. Our guide made us feel right at home showing us a couple of places to buy a few bits ����������

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It a great pleasure to be your guide. You 5 years child has given a special taste to the tour.I did not only enjoy your company but also the presence of a little prince who was so cute and brave. Shall God bless you,your lovely wife and the little angel.Best wishes.

Mohamed was very friendly, was more a friend than a guide. Despite being Ramadan and he was fasting he bought me a coffee and chatted to me as I drank it. Great tour, great guide, can't recommend it enough

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much dear Andrew I am so happy to hear that you have enjoyed the tour .You are the salt of the earth. All the pleasure was to me.Cheers

A good trip out. We wanted a carpet and were taken to a good place with a vast choice and pleasant experience. The argan place was interesting but expensive. Lunch was lovely sitting by the river. He told us that to see the waterfall would be a 2 hour walk and we ran out of time so didn't do that part. On the way back we stopped at a local farm to see how they live. Our driver was excellent. For us this trip was better than the two tours in the town.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Good I am happy to hear that you have enjoyed it.Thank you

We did see the main areas of the souk but he had set destinations in mind. These were suggested as being good craft places and they mainly were but we did have a feeling that we were being 'sold' shops he knew well. True they all sold good quality stuff at a price. We did end up in some places we really wouldn't have gone near left to our own choice. He dissuaded us from going to a good restaurant we had booked in the souk area as he said it would not be safe at night but did recommend another restaurant

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi am very very surprised but thank you. My great respect to you.

The tour covered many sites worth seeing but could have been better arranged. We visited the Saadian Tombs but the queue for seeing the best tomb was very lengthy by the time we were taken there so we couldn't wait. We were told you could still see much from the tomb alongside but that wasn't the case. It would have been better to have gone there earlier before the crowds arrived so we could see the tomb.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The tombs are always overcrowded with visitors .It is one of the highlights of Marrakech and it is a very small place. I did my best not to let you missing the whole morning in the queue. Thank you

Mohammad was superb. He reached out to us via email before our arrival introducing himself and giving us some travel pointers for Marrakech. During the tour was friendly, knowledgeable, and it was an excellent way to explore Marrakech's rich and varied history. We would highly recommend Mohammad to anyone coming for a visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. You are so lovely and i wish i could have spent more time with you. I hope to see you again in Marrakech. Best wishes.

Do not enter Marrakesh Medina without Mohamed!He will navigate this huge complicated maze for you.He is knowledgeable,friendly,reliable,caring, & flexable. He aims to please, will customize your tour & is not a clock watcher.We hired him for 2 days, beginning in the art gallery section & continuing on to "behind the scenes"of actual artisans creating their goods-wood, leather,metal, &straw items. Rather than walking aimlessly thru the Medina,he made our experience meaningful, valuable, brought it to life!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much dear Sue .It is so nice to hear from you .My best wishes to your lovely husband and family.

We highly recommend Mohamed (and his wonderful driver, Aziz) to fully enjoy Marrakesh.

Mohamed A. was a remarkable and perfect guide to Marrakech. My friend and I arrived from the airport 2 hours after our tour was supposed to begin, but he generously, and easily pushed back the start time. Mohamed is articulate, friendly, funny, very on top of the history of the city and its monuments, and altogether the best possible introduction to Marrakech. He made us feel like we were locals, making it unexpectedly easy and enjoyable. I cannot say enough great things about him. Fantastic.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello,Hello and hello dear Cormac! I am so happy to hear from you.Both you and Tyler were so kind and so lovely. I wish we could have spent more time together. Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. Do not forget to say hello on my behalf to your mum Susan and to the rest of your family. Now! you have a friend in Marrakech ready to be referred to for any your coming holiday or that of any of the people you know. Sincerely yours M

Mohamed merkt man sein Studium in Soziologie an. Er ist erfahren und unabhängig. Er versucht nicht seine Gäste in bestimmte Läden zu bringen, um Kommission zu bekommen, wenngleich er die Souks von Marrakech gut kennt. Im Gegenteil: Er warnt davor, gibt gute Tipps, auch für die eigene Sicherheit. Wir haben viel gesehen und gelernt. Sehr höflich. Absolut empfehlenswert.

Mohamed A. is an excellent guide. He is very well versed in the history of Marrakech and Morocco. We are a family of four. Our tour included trips to the souks, Jemma el-Fna; the Palais Bahia, and other interesting sights. Excellent arrangements were made for camel rides, quad bikes, horse drawn carriages, fantasia dinner and show. We visited a weekly Berber market and village. Shopping was great fun for all of us thanks to the selection of stores.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much dear Carlton for both your excellent feedback and for the wonderful photos you sent me.That was so kind of you.It was a great honour to be your guide. My best wishes to you ,your lovely wife,Lisa and Guabby. You are in my heart. I love you and I hope to see you again. Have a nice trip back home. Thank you.

Mohamed is an extremely knowledgeable guide. He treats you less as a tourist and more as friend. Takes you shops and locations that are legit and places where we would not get swindled. He is able to adjust his bundles to your interests. We learned not only about Morocco and Marrakesh but also about Mohamed himself. I can honestly I look at Mohamed more as a friend and less as a tour guide now that our four day touring of Marrakesh has been completed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello my dear friend Adam:Thank you so much for you exellant feedback. Both you and Daniel were so friendly and "malih".It was really nice to be your guide and to have as friends that will stay so dear to me. I will always happy to meet you again. Take care.

Mohamed was so easy to work with, super nice, and very accommodating. Even though it rained we had a really great time and would do it again. After we had tea in the tent, we asked Mohamed to bring the car so we didn't have to stay out in the rain on the camels. He was very quick to make this happen, and then offered to take us to see other sights in Marrakech. We would recommend this tour to anyone who likes adventure!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello sweet princesses:I am very happy to hear that you have enjoyed your camel ride adventure. You are beautiful, lovely, sweet and "the salt of the earth". Thank you so much for your excellant feedback. It was a short visit of MOROCCO and I hope that you would come back. My best wishes to all your families. Cheers
