    This was fantastic tour. I wish I would have booked the full day tour. Our tour guide was so knowledgable and informative. He was accommodating and helpful. I learned so much about Marrakech that I never would have known had I not taken this tour! I highly recommend this tour.

    We only had a couple of days in Marrakech so this was a perfect way to see the main sights. We modified the itinerary a little to cater for my mother and went to YSL gardens and museum instead of doing the walking part of the tour. Nourdine was so accommodating and interesting to talk to. We learnt so much about Marrakech and Morocco in general and Having a lovely van and a driver made this a comfortable and enjoyable few hours. It was the highlight of our two days here. Thanks Nourdine!

    Very enjoyable experience! The tour guide was very knowledgeable, professional, friendly and helpful. We cannot remember the name of the tour guide or driver's name but we have had the tour on September 27th, morning. Keep it up! Many thanks for an amazing trip. :)

    Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly so that was not a concern. There are 2 stops that try to pressure you into buying stuff. The first is an argan oil place with various herbs. This is harmless enough. However, the “souks” stop is only a trip to a rug store walking through the souks only with no history really to speak of. If you want to buy a rug this may be acceptable but your tour time is probably better spent on other sights.

    The tour, tour guide and driver were fantastic. Saw a lot of things that we wasn’t expecting. The tombs were abit of a let down if I’m honest as I was just expecting a different type I think. Overall though a great experience and would recommend again.

    This was a great tour of Marrakech! Traveling with 2 young kids- our guide Ouidad was fantastic and showed us all the highlights of Marrakech! We didn’t feel rushed at all and enjoyed visiting the Majorelle Gardens, the various palaces and the tombs. Highly recommend the tour and many thanks to Ouidad, who was an excellent guide!

    It was a great day with Sharif. He was very knowledgeable and had a good mix of telling us about the city and giving us alone time to enjoy it. I would book him again in a minute.

    Sharif our tour guide was SO KNOWLEDGEABLE. I learned so much about the Moroccan culture and the three stops were very well-timed. I highly recommend this tour.
