Fantasia dinner and cultural show in Marrakech
Watch a spectacular Moroccan show, complete with belly dancing
Enjoy a traditional meal while seated on cushions around the venue
Begin your experience with a pickup from your Marrakech hotel or a central meeting point. Then, travel to the Fantasia show venue — a palm grove with Berber-style tents and a sand arena.
Head inside a tent and settle on the comfortable floor cushions. Then, savor a traditional feast of Moroccan dishes, such as roast lamb, couscous and mint tea accompanied by Berber music and belly-dancing displays.
Next, take a seat around the outdoor arena and enjoy an electrifying folklore show featuring horse riders, dancers, magicians and other exotic acts.
Watch a thunderous display of Moroccan horsemanship, with riders dressed in historical battle costume. Admire the speed of the pure Arab stallions as the riders act out battle scenes, performing stunts and blasting rifles into the air.
Then, watch a host of colorful entertainments as skilful fire-eaters, acrobats and magicians take the stage.
Keep your camera handy for the stunning finale — when two performers climb aboard a magic carpet to ‘fly’ through the air.
After the spectacular finish, your evening then ends with a drop-off at the original start point.
A lovely and amazing night to spend in ches Ali. A must try if you are in Morocco to experience the Moroccon culture. Show was good. Food was typical morrocon cuisine and way too much in abundance for a small group. A place worth going once
Our driver was great, so friendly and so helpful. The show is great if you have kids- it’s sort of Disney land meets Morocco but as two adult friends there are much nicer dinners and shows to be had in central marrakech.
This is the standard tourist stop for visitors to Marrakesh. The horsemanship of the riders was great, and the Berber men with the rifles was surprising. There is also a lot of music from every in Morocco's regions, but there is a lot of 'manufactured' exhibits and it can get old in a hurry.
The dinner is actually quite good, punctuated with appearances from groups from different tribes.
A nice show in the end with horses, belly dance, fireworks and even the flying carpet, as promised.
We did not get impressed with the local company, however. Our guide arrived late without any apology or even the average salutation in the end, a French couple and we remained waiting for him at the designated meeting point for ages. When everyone had left and the music was finally off, we eventually headed to the bus park, only to find him angry and shouting at us, without having bothered to look for us rather than complain. The displays of irritation regarding the larger Spanish group were also unpleasant, bordering on xenophobia.
We'd recommend the dinner and show, if you're into that kind of thing, bearing in mind there are several other operators offering the same. The hosting place was called Chez Ali and has its own website!
The cultural show was exciting but I would highly advise you to take a higher seat during the horse show because we almost got into an accident as the horse slipped into the spectator's area since there isn't any proper barricade or fencing. Dinner service took some time but the portions were extremely generous. Loved the chicken couscous that they served.
Pick up on time, guide irritatingly pushy. 'Take photo here this is a good view' so many times we just ended up taking photos just to shut guide up. Guide made us feel like herded kindergarteners through the complex prior to dinner. Food OK, drinks overpriced, forced into tip with wrong change given, after waiting for change when I pointed out change was short Guide 'suggested' I leave it as tip, felt I had no choice, I just gave up. Show started in darkness couldn't see anything for first 5 minutes. Then guide kept warning us 'they shoot guns now' every time they were going to do gun charge, 'here comes the flying carpet'.I had read reviews so went pre-warned that some people thought it was touristy, but was worse than my worst fears. For dinner sat at table with guide who just talked in Arabic to the 2 others from our group, certainly left us feeling like the unwelcomed guests at the table.
