The guide Zee was knowledgeable and gave us enough time at each place. He had answers to all our questions and always had a smile. He is also a great photographer. The only feedback I have for the entire trip was the lunch, it was too expensive for what they have to offer. If you are a vegetarian you will have very limited to no options. 200 dirhams for 2 adults and a kid is definitely very expensive for the number of dishes they had to offer.

I learned a lot more than I expected thanks to our tour guide, Zeeshan. He was very nice and thorough throughout the entire tour, even when many of us were tired he still managed to keep us engaged and make us laugh along the way. The tour has to be just as good as the tour guide, and he didn’t disappoint. 10/10 would do again.
