What people are saying about Medina, Marrakech

This workshop was great fun, highly interactive and well organised. A ‘translator’ met us at a central place, and took us to the venue - that was appreciated, because I doubt we would have found it otherwise!! The instructor was well organised, had templates and material ready and we felt well catered and prepared for. The amount of work that goes into a slipper was a real eye-opener, and certainly gave us a new appreciation of the instructor’s work. Our translator was hardly necessary as our instructor had a good grasp of English, but we enjoyed very much her input into the conversation. Overall, this was a top experience that I would highly recommend. We left very proud of our new slippers!!!

Unforgettable... Thank you so much Hassan en Hsen for making this experience unforgettable for us and made us in love with the Berber traditions. Thank you for making the impossible impossible for us to experience, the amazing hospitality, kindness and the delicious food that you prepared for us. You made us feel like family and me and my daughter can’t thank you enough. I would recommend everybody to experience this amazing journey with you and i guarantee they will all have an amazing time. 100000 times thank you and see u for sure next time we come to Marrakech.

Unsere Tour mit unserem Guide Soufiane, der perfekt Deutsch sprach, war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis. Er holte uns pünktlich vor unserem Riad ab und zeigte uns alle Sehenswürdigkeiten. Wir waren zu Fuss unterwegs - am Nachmittag im Minivan mit Fahrer. Seine grossen Kentnisse über Kultur, Geschichte und Politik liessen die Zeit unheimlich schnell vergehen. Danke Soufiane für einen tollen Tag. Die Tour ist eine volle Empfehlung

Great babouche making workshop, the artisan and the guide were very friendly in showing me how to build these traditional footwear that I was able to customize to my liking. Thanks for everything!

Great guide - great tour through the old town of Marrakech - learned a lot, also about the life of Moroccans - highly recommended!
