Simo is our night watchman. He’s from Marrakech and has worked at Dar Zaman since 2011. His family own a green grocers shop in the Kasbah quarter of the medina, so there is always lots of fresh fruit available at the riad! Simo speaks English and French.

Peter - Marrakech Riad Dar Zaman

Peter – Marrakech Riad Dar Zaman

And then there is me, Peter. I own and manage Riad Dar Zaman so there is a very good chance we’ll meet in Marrakech. I’ve lived in Marrakech since 2007 and until now am still under the spell of the blue sky, sunshine, delicious food and medieval charm of this magical city. We will do our best to make sure you get the most out of your stay in Marrakech with lots of insider tips and information on what to see and where to go.
