It was an excellent tour and good value for money. We had 2 guides with us on the tour who took turns to explain the history of the monuments. The palace was amazing with the lovely ceiling and tiled floors. Covered a lot of monuments and they even dropped us back at the square when we requested instead of our hotel.
This is a great value tour. The sites visited do get busy with lots of tourists so it really helps having a tour guide. Our guide was interesting and informative and we covered a lot of sites during the morning. As I was staying in the medina I was picked up from a central location very near Djemaa El Fna which worked out very well. I would recommend this tour for first time visitors to Marrakech.
Excellent tour, very interesting mixture of palaces and monuments. Very knowledgeable guide - highly recommended
This trip was definitely worth the price. I booked it after arriving in Marrakech so I had compared the price with the local tour operators and it was less than I could get there. The guide was knowledgable and gave a lot of incidental information that was very useful. He spoke good English and gave a good insight into modern Morocco as well as the history that we were viewing. The French speaking tourists were given a separate guide. Unlike a lot of other tours, I could not have done this myself.
The description said hotel pick-up/drop-off was part of this tour - not true! We didn't get to see much as we spent so much time at Koutoubia Mosque.
The main problem with the tour was that the hotel we stayed in has 2 receptions but no one at the tour company told me this when I phoned to confirm as requested. In consequence we waited at the reception where we were dropped off throughout our stay and missed the tour on the allotted date. Fortunately the tour company fitted us in on the next day's trip but this was with the Discovery of Marrakech group and did not give us the full tour on which we were booked. I think you should ensure that the local office advise tourists which reception they will collect from to avoid confusion for future travelers!

Not a bad tour. I was quite annoyed by the tour guide who felt that we should have spoken French. We felt as if we were an inconvenience because we spoke English.

Late collection,guide difficult to understand,not enough visits to the important places. The visit was padded by visits to carpet vendor etc andwas cut short by about 2 hours
