The tour included so much of Marrakech. While the sights were fantastic, and the lunch was really good, there were a couple of 'hard-sell' shopping opportunities that could have been left out. It was a really long day, and being dragged into carpet shops and traditional pharmacies to be pressured to buy stuff was just unnecessary and spoilt an otherwise great tour. There's also a fine line between explaining about the local religion and customs and 'preaching'. Ditch the shopping 'opportunities' and the tour would have been 5 star.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Rather than a tour this was kind of a bus trip where you just got to get out and take a few photos. Despite booking a tour in English, I was the only English speaker and the rest of the rest of the travellers were German. While it's always impressive that a guide can converse fluently in both languages, it just slows everything down when all commentary has to be done twice. I would recommend tours on different days or times for different languages, not combining them.
