This was a perfect half day trip from Agadir, and a chance to see the local culture in "Little Marrakesh". We booked at 8pm and was picked up at 8:30 the next morning with zero issues. Our guide, Ilias was friendly, professional, and knowledgeable! I will only go on other tours with him as our guide. He is flexible and will do help you with whatever your interests are! Excellent tour and superb guide. I wish I could give him 10 stars out of 5! Thank you so much for a great time and an intimate view of the Moroccon culture!

We were lucky enough to be accompanied and driven by Hishan alone. Taroudant is a small, manageable town that is not overrun by tourists. You can see and experience a lot of the real Morocco here. Many thanks again to Hishan for the great amount of information and the good and safe journey!

Picking up at the hotel worked great. Guide spoke good German. He explained a lot to us on the way and on site. Stopped at interesting spots for us. It was a successful trip. Recommended.

Abdul, the driver and guide, very good. The experience, very nice. Since everything cannot be perfect, the vehicle was not in the best condition.

The trip was very successful, a great guide and a delicious traditional lunch. The only small minus is not enough time in Taroudant, I recommend
