Hicham is a great host. He is so knowledgeable about the city and all the great spots to take us . I learned a lot about the history of Marrakesh from this tour. The whole tour was hassle free because the street vendors know who he is and so they did not approach us to tell their products, which is so pleasant. He has a masters in interpretation and so his English is perfect. I recommend him 100%!

Great tour guide. Hicham is a very knowledgeable guy and creates a fun environment. An excellent way to start your trip in Morocco to help navigate your way around, learn a lot about the culture and avoid any common tourist mistakes. As two women travelling alone in Morocco we felt very comfortable on and after completing this tour. Thanks Hicham, all the best.

This tour with Ali was a great introduction to Marrakech. Highly recommended if you want to learn about the old city without being in a crowd of tourists.

Amazing tour with Hicham. Very knowledgable and friendly and explains the local history very well, and also current day Moroccan cultural and political aspects going on. Very interesting tour that I definitely would recommend.

As I was the only guest who booked, Hicham gave me a private tour! He brought a great historical perspective to sites. Additionally, he was very thoughtful – buying a local donut (that I would have never found on my own) and sending suggestions for later activities.

Hicham was an amazing tour guide. He was so informative and answered all of our questions. He also gave us really helpful tips for our trip to avoid scams and what was worthwhile. Would definitely recommend to anyone!
