What a rip-off
Full-Day Marrakech Sightseeing Tour | Jul 2019
I booked this tour because for $93, i thought this is going to be a comprehensive day long tour of Marrakesh (which is very small) with someone who speaks English. Instead i wasn't even contacted about the tour in advance. I had to ask the receptionist to call the company the night before and confirm. The only way it occurred to me to contact the guide is because My other friends booked $30 half day tour because they didn't have time to do the full day one. Their guide contacted them 2 days in advance and confirmed the time and date. So when i finally called the company they seemed confused about my booking (for $93) and finally were able to confirm after some research on their end.
The next morning, my friends were picked up promptly without any issues on time. My guide, named Kziou Najib called me to tell me that i should walk to some place to meet him. I told him no. I'm a young woman and i will not be venturing out to some place alone in a city where my phone doesn't work and i don't speak the language. I should have cancelled but i wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt.
He finally showed up at the hotel and made some sleazy comments which i ignored but i didn't feel safe so i texted his information and plate number to my friends. Then he proceeded to take me to random places which were on his "program." My friends who were on half day tour were taken to the most coolest places that they wanted to go with 30-45 minutes to explore each place. Whereas he told me that his program includes 4 places and that i must explore each place for at least 2 hours. Mind you, the museums, the garden and the tombs are so small that even 45 minutes are too much for these places. So when i finished exploring the area fwithin 45 or an hour, he informed me that the tour will be half a day tour because based on his "program" i should have spent 2 hours in each place. Doing what? Counting the number of tombs? even then i would still have so much time remaining.
Anyways, he also refused to take me to places with free admission. My friends went to 6-7 places from 9am until 2 pm and paid $30 and i went to 4 places from 10am until 2pm. He dropped me off at my hotel afterwards.
I do not recommend this tour to anyone. Please save your time. It doesn't add any value to the ones that are being offered for much cheaper price. ...Read more
