Most authentic gift

I booked the workshop as a birthday gift for my sister. The wildyness team was super responsive and proactive. They communicated really well and made sure that we get all the details (location, timing, reminders etc.. )beforehand. The workshop was excellent, Souhail Fitouri is very knowledgeable, respectful and passionate. I highly recommend this workshop. If you want to be fully immersed in the medina’s old craftsmanship this workshop is your go-to activity.
