    Except for Majorelle Gardens the sites are close to each other, at walking distance.
    We assume this was not an official guide, as no Moroccan Tourism lanyard, pretty hard to understand and follow his English.
    Sites are beautiful and worth the visit.

    The guide was great and the sights wonderful. He was very attentive to our needs. Must say that we didn’t need as much time at the Majorelle Gardens but it was great nonetheless!

    Had an excellent day with our guide Younes who had great knowledge of all the sites. He would drop us off and return on time for the next location. Really friendly.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our Marrakesh city tour yesterday. Our driver took us to Saadian tombs, Bahia Palace and Koutoubia Mosque, while driving around he pointed out landmarks, imparted historical facts and information about the culture. We recommend it.

    This experience involved a private driver picking us up and driving us to some of the main sites in Marrakech, where we could then pay entry for to explore ourselves. I think this is quite a good option if you want to go at your own pace/do your own thing, so it worked for us! However, if you're expecting a more detailed and guided tour, then you may want to explore other options too. Our driver couldn't find the location of our accommodation, and so was 45mins late which was worrying as we did not receive an update email to inform us of this. When he did arrive, he was a nice and knowledgeable man who did apologise and subsequently tailored the tour to us (given the shortened time), even when we also had to make some last minute changes so we could get back in good time to catch our flight back. Additionally, he gave us some information about Marrakech as we drove around which was interesting! Overall, a good experience despite the rocky start.

    Nur, our very friendly guide, gave informed and helpful introductions too each sight with info along the way about Marrakech. He also made an effort to take us to the sights in the order that would best help us avoid long lines. He made a courtesy stop at the train station to allow me to buy tickets I needed. He shared interesting insights about daily life in Morocco. Very highly recommended.

    Our guide/driver was Noreen. Very helpful, friendly and professional. He showed us the citys main sights and explained nicely about the historic sites. Very clean car and safe driver. Also gave us free time at the square at the end so that we can see the square in the evening in lights.
    thoroughly recommended!

    We have used a in the past and always found them reliable and booked this trip before we set off for Marrakech. Once again they came up trumps.. The pick up from our hotel was a little late - but with the traffic in this bustling city this was understandable. Our tour guide spoke good English and was very informative about the sights we hardboiled to see He allowed ample time for us to look around the various places we had booked in the tour. Overall, this was an enjoyable half-day tour that gave us an insight into the history of Marrakech and would recommend it.

    Said our guide took us around Marrakech. Showed us the some of the best sites. He had great English and explained the history of the places very well. Was supposed to be for 3 hours but in the end stayed another 45 mind more! Would recommend 1000 times!

    Driver gave us some background, but dropped us off in each place. We had to find the entrances ourselves, stand/wait in line and pay our tickets. Basically, this was a taxi service that waited for us within the 14 hours. Driver was nice and gave some good highlights of the city. If you want a truly guided tour of each place you are going, this is not it.
