Not being used to driving an electric scooter, the guide took the time to adapt to my abilities. He was very attentive to our safety. The icing on the cake: he took us through a problem to get to the place. D. El Fina, memorable memory! I recommend this discovery by scooter because it is fun and quiet. Thanks to Walid!

This was a fantastic tour to the Unesco world heritage site of Ait Ben Haddou as well as a visit to the Atlas Film Studios. Definitely not to be missed by movie buffs! The road trip takes in Berber country with the opportunity of tasting Berber cuisine and admiring (buying) traditional jewellery.

Walid is the most friendly guide we ever met. He knows a lot about the city and the Maroccan culture. Book this tour!!

Good fun but driving through the souk market was a bit stressful. Overall a fun experience

Great tour around Marrakech and inside the Medina. Whalid was the best guide 👌
