private tour guides

Hi, Anyone knows of a good reliable tour guide to take us around Morocco . Someone to show us the sights and not the shops!! Does not have to be one guide, could be a guide to a particular area. i.e Fez, Marakesh, Erg Chebbi etc. Any thoughts would be appreciated. RSA

Arrange for licensed guides through your hotel reception. For the desert trek, find one in Merzouga.

Get used to the idea that the guide is going to take you to at least a few places to shop. That is the main reason why they are guides in the first place.

Book through your hotel for all the major cities. You can also do that in Merzouga through a place where you are staying or book after you arrive. Tour guides in the major cities make money off taking you to shop. I have used a couple booked through the hotel where I made it perfectly clear I was looking for the cultural tour and NOT the shopping tour and if it turned out to be a shopping tour then the fee I paid would be reduced accordingly. In both cases (Fes and Tangier) I had a great tour with no shopping.
