Wonderful experience. Well-preserved Kasbah and a really fun, knowledgeable guide - Reda - who did a great job explaining about Kasbah life. Definitely worth the stop if you will be in this part of Morocco!

As we visited during the off season, we had the kasbah to ourselves during the entire 45 minute tour. Lovely setting, beautiful views, interesting history. Definitely worth visiting while in Skoura.
