Hicham's Experience truly gave me a fascinating peek behind the walls of Marrakesh. Hicham is a skilled story teller and succeeds in making the Experience feel interactive and personal. I felt highly engaged through the 1 hr we all spent together and loved all the images and aspects of the city Hicham chose to highlight. I also loved that Hicham had a nuanced view of the socio-political realities of Moroccan society and its relationship with the world. It's a great one for anyone interested to learn more about Morocco. Makes me feel like making a visit soon :)

Hicham made Marrakesh come to live with his excellent story telling and humor. Can't wait to go to Marrakesh now. His English is very good and he kindly answered all of our random questions.

I had the most beautiful evening with my friend thanks to Hicham. Hicham prepared a PPT presentation, which he used as a starting point for many exciting stories about Marakesh. My friend and I were in two different locations (New York and Hamburg), and we felt as if we just spent an evening together. In "Marakesh behind the walls," you will learn a lot about culture, history and you will have quite a few laughs and eye-openers.

Very informative and enjoyable. Hicham was friendly and welcomed questions. My husband and I visited Marrakech around 10 years ago, so it was really good to learn new things and see it from another perspective, we'll definitely be more informed if we visit again.
