We were considering hiring a guide for our 1st day in Marrakech to help us get our bearings in the medina. We arent really wanting to do much shopping on this day, and dont want the pressure of being taken into a "cousin" or "friend" of the guide's shop - we are really just looking for someone to take us around and talk about some of the history of the main sites, help us with our bearings and suggest good little eateries, etc that the locals frequent (that we can visit on the rest of our trip).
Are there guides one can hire that wont be annoyed that we dont want to go in shops (thus cutting their potential commission)? We would obviously tip well at the end of the day, but want our expectations to be clear...What can we expect to pay for a full day?
Ideas and opinions would be very welcome.
