Response from MarrakechUA, Owner at Marrakech Medina Walking Tour, Including Bahia Palace and the Photography Museum
Responded 13 Jan 2019
Hi Martin , I hope that you are well and thank you for your feedback. Did the guide have an Urban Adventures badge ? We don't have any guides named Mohamed , they are a lot of guides in front of café France that lie and tell people that they work for the company that the clients say so you can you can tag a long with them. We are sorry for the hassle caused by this , please reach out to us if you are in Marrakech again so we can redo the tour for you properly. Cheers, Marrakech UA
