Reviews

Travellers have rated this tour as 3.67 out of 5 based on 3 recent reviews

The tour was generally very good, however the guide we had did the minimum, normally when we have been I. Tours with On The Go, guides have told us about the history and landscape on the journey, he just about managed to tell us when to meet him

The hotels were generally good, however we booked an extra night and we were put in a very out of town hotel instead of the first hotel we had which was very central

Tour guides were excellant throughout, very accomodating and informative. Found our first nights hotel below standard for a 4 star rating and did not compare with the other hotels on tour.

Would have liked to spend more time in Marrekesh.
