For sure tour will help you to easier navigate through the alleys of Medina and get familiar with major types of souks, our guide also showed us some choices of restaurants that we were able to use later. However we didn't feel like there was some particular agenda or a plan for a tour, it was rather chaotic and almost half of it was through the French district. Also the information from the guide was very general and most of it you can find on any article about the Medina or in Wikipedia.

Better joining instructions would have been helpful. The square is very busy with lots of people and it was awkward standing outside the hotel as the security kept asking us questions.
