    Groupe très sympa! Notamment une famille anglaise! Les visites sont bien réparties pas trop longues pas trop courtes. Les explications du guide étaient très biens, et nous avons bien déjeuner dans un restaurant à la décoration typique et un orchestre de musique très agréable ! C’était Super! Perso j’ai très apprécié le guide!

    Du palais Baïa au tombeaux Saadien, il ne faut rien rater des palais et monuments de Marrakech. A découvrir aussi après les travaux qui s'y déroulent en ce moment, l'école coranique.

    The guide's English was a little difficult to understand, went on a little bit too much on certain historical aspects. The sights were good didn't need the herbalist shop visit towards the end.

    I was picked up on time at my hotel and we proceeded to the meetup point to meet our guide. There everything went downhill unfortunately. On total there were 18 people in the group and one tour guide so it was difficult to hear anything. Secondly our tour guide was constantly on his damn mobile and was always distracted by one thing or another. Sometimes felt he forgot we were there!! He headed to a museum which was closed didn't bother to inform the group but instead turned around and kept walking without a word

    Unorganized. Rushed.

    The tour proceeded in a downpour. No consideration was given to reschedule as you could not leave the taxi. Complete waste of time.

    This tour was not the best, but good enough to get you familiar with the area to later go sightseeing on your own. I felt the tour guide didn't give a lot of information and didn't see a whole lot. However it was just ok to me.
