Super friendly and knowledgeable guide made for not only a perfect day of sightseeing but also an education in the culture and history of the city and its people. Our family of 4 were joined by 4 other visitors so made it almost a personal experience. Had lovely lunch on a roof top terrace overlooking the city which made a nice surprise and restful break. There was plenty of time to explore on our own, take photos and soak up the atmosphere especially at the end of the day overlooking the Jamaa El-Fina Square as it came to life. Always felt safe and never troubled.

A very good starter to a vacation - you really learn a lot about were you have landed in Marrakech - religion - history - palaces...

The tour was brilliant. The museums and the souks were inspiring. However, the lunch was poor. It's clearly mass produced and 'tagine' sold to gullible tourists. Having said that, the whole day was fantastic and worth the money! I would book this if you go to Morocco!

This is a great tour to get a sense of Marrakech in one day. Be aware of the sanke, moneky, and henna people on the square.
• Submitted 07 Mar 2018
The tour was fantastic - highly recommend. Our guide was knowledgeable and accommodating for all of those in our group. Would have preferred to be in a smaller group initially, as it appears that two groups 26 were combined for the first half of the day. Once the half- day group was finished, those of us in the full day 8 were able to move a bit more nimbly.

My Cousin and I really enjoyed this tour. We were two girls, so this tour was a great way for us to acquaint ourselves to the Medina. We visited many of the major sites and learned a lot about Marrakech along with some history along the way! I thought our guide was pretty funny, so that helped a lot. It was nice that we didn't have to worry about lunch, although the food was ok. Lots of walking and perfect for those who want to get their steps in, smell, see, and also shop the Medina in one day. I recommend.

Wow!! What an amazing Day from start to finish... our guide was prompt at pick up from our hotel and was friendly and approachable from the offset. We met the rest of our group and headed straight for landmark no1 the mosque then to the saadian tombs, walked to the jewish village via Kasbah, through the market stalls to the Bahia Palace- here we had free time to roam and take pictures. Then we had a fantastic talk from a shop owner who sold legitimate herbs/spices/oils etc... that was really informative and no obligation to purchase anything. We then went for lunch in this beautiful restaurant and probably had the best meal on the whole trip. We continued our trip through the souks and watched the Moroccan people at work! We walked to the Ben Youssef university and then to the Market where we had free time to shop/ wonder/ or take in the beautiful Medina. The guide was knowledgeable, helpful and also had a fun character which makes it less of a history lesson but more of an experience.... one I will treasure forever!! Thank you!!

This is an excellent way to see most of the sites of Marrakech in one day. We spent the entire day in the Medina, including a delicious lunch. The guide provided interesting insights and facts, and kept us from being lost in the winding roads of the souks.

The tour guide was very knowledgable, providing great information with a sense of humor and able to answer the questions from the group. In the shops he helped negotiate on everyone's behalf and was overall very likable and professional. A great experience both for solo travelers and groups!

We had a very positive experience on our tour. We were worried that it would be too long but it was perfect. Our guide was wonderful and so knowledgeable about the history of Marrakech and Morocco. He was also so interesting and blended the world today with the culture of Marrakech/Morocco. As we visited sites, other groups and tourists would stop to listen. The pick-up was a bit uncertain, so read the fine print of the confirmation, but it all worked out beautifully. The lunch was wonderful and was a good break from all of the walking. We would recommend this tour to anyone that visits.

This tour provided great insight of the city of Marrackech. The guide was very helpful and informative. The lunch at Dar Essalam was delicious and authentic. This tour was a great experience and I would definitely recommend it to others.

The day lasted from our 8.10 pick up to our 5.30 drop off. Small group tour which as OK. Our guide Abdul is very experienced and knowledgeable and took us to all the places promised and a few more besides. A few more minutes at each location would have been nice. Lunch in the Dar-es-Salaam restaurant was good and fun with the entertainment. Beware the end when you end up in a shop selling everything - you are promised a good price but it's difficult to tell as no prices are marked to start with. Beware!!!!

This tour gives you a very good feel for Merrekech. Palaces, tombs, museums, Souk, schools, herbal pharmacy and includes lunch. Really good price for all the things you get to see. Be prepared for a lot of walking! It was about 7 house long and we were walking almost the whole time. Guide was great.

I loved this and what a great way to see the city. My guide, Abdul was AMAZING and knew the history plus all the spots for a great picture. I'm really glad I did this tour because Marrakech isn't easy to navigate. Having an expert guide who knows the history is the best thing. I highly recommend it, ask for Abdul.

This tour was perfect for my first day in Marrakesh! The guide was amazing, he took us through the souks and the Djemaa El Fna square. Lunch was at this beautiful restaurant in the middle of the Medina, the food and service was amazing. I highly recommend this tour, it will help you ease into the Medina experience.
• Submitted 17 Dec 2016
Great little tour. It managed to pack in most of the main sights into the day without it feeling like we were rushed or exhausted by the end of the day. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about a variety of issues from history, to archaeology, to horticulture and all his commentary was delivered in a well planned out manner and was fun and funny at the same time. The thing I was especially impressed about with this tour was the small group size, there were only five of us on the tour compared to very large groups on other tours that were visiting the same sights. The lunch spot was an especially interesting place.

We booked this tour because we didn't have much time in Marrakech and it was the best decision we've made! Khalid our tour guide was very friendly. He took us to the main landmarks in Medina and we walked around in the Medina through places we would never travel if we were on our own. I wish he could explain more about the medina, the history behind it and its wall. How Marrakech got its name etc. Overall, it was a very enjoyable tour. And we met two friendly Irish girls who were on the tour with us.
