Incredible experience with Hakim!
Shannon_M, Mar 2023
Our guide Hakim was AMAZING. To start the tour he asked what we wanted to do, see, hear, and what we were interested in. We wanted to learn about history and BOY did he deliver! He didn’t try to bring us to a thousand stores, instead he told us names, dates, fun facts, history, conflicts, phases of empire, and had an answer to every single question we asked. We never stumped him! I have rarely been so impressed with a guide. 10/10 would absolutely recommend to anyone. All the reviews saying you could do it yourself only really apply if you’re looking for pictures because we would never have known the significance of any of these sites without Hakim.
Not great tour no real insights
Maren_S, Mar 2023
Went with my best friend. Two women therefore and we had constantly the feeling the male guide was not very happy with being our guide Tour only took 2.5 h instead of the 3-4 Felt like he was unhappy as well with the fact that we did not want to buy things at the shops
Micael_L, Mar 2023
overpriced! you still get charged for every entry! a group of 10 people is 300€ for 3 hours of work!
Walking tour.
Joanne_C, Mar 2023
The guide had an excellent command of the English language. Was informative and witty. A good size group. 3 hours was enough.
City tour of Marrakech
Malcolm_H, Mar 2023
An excellent tour with a great guide who showed us all the important historical sites in Marrakech with good narrative about the history of the city and its traditions and history
Nice walk but could use more info
Ann_B, Mar 2023
We had a nice walking tour and Mohammed was very nice! We would’ve appreciated some extra history and practical information (like typical tourist scams (“tanneries”, “berber festival”, etc), tips for negotiating, etc). We overpaid a lot for taxis and didn’t learn until Casablanca to use inDrive. Tips like that could really help

Jolly_N, Mar 2023
Our guide Rashid, was dull and very serious. Only took us to Bahia Palace. Was not engaging at all. We had a private tour with him.
Lizzie_D, Mar 2023
Our guide was brilliant, so knowledgable and funny. We saw many beautiful sights and learnt so much! Marrakech is beautiful and I can’t wait to come back, thank you for a lovely tour!
Moroccan highlights
yambroi, Mar 2023
The tour started right on time in front of cafe de France. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and charming . He gave us a well rounded historical tour. He surpassed my expectation. Jagard is equally at ease in English or French. You will enjoy this walking tour of the city and it’s many highlights. It’s a good way to familiarize yourself with the mail squares and the labyrinth corridors.
Great informative tour
Kate_P, Mar 2023

Great tour
Leanne_M, Feb 2023
We enjoyed our recent guided tour with Abdul. Great introduction to Marrakesh. We had a lovely day and we look forward to returning
Excellent guide, excellent tour
Morgen_T, Feb 2023
Our guide was knowledgeable, polite, humorous, energetic and kind. He more than outdid himself and was almost late to his next tour as he took so much time with us. He really was the perfect guide, and even escorted us to a restaurant, at our request, and helped us pick items on the me u. Above and beyond his requirements, and a pleasure to be around .
great way to see the highlights of Marrakech
Kirsten_S, Feb 2023
This was a great way to see some of the highlights of Marrakech. The tour guide was knowledgable and was happy to extend the tour if people wanted to spend more time at certain locations.

Anna_K, Feb 2023
Our guide, Hussain, was very knowledgeable. He knew all the history behind the sites. It was a great start to our trip.
Excellent window into Moroccan life beyond the souks
Douglas_B, Feb 2023
Yousef shared his experiences with us in addition to a clear-spoken, concise history of various time periods of Marrakech’s history. A delightful way to orient ourselves to Moroccan life beyond the souks.
Dont waste your money
TJ_H, Jan 2023
I could have done this on my own and saved $30+. We were only taken to three places where we didnt have long to stay as the tour guide was ready to rush us off to the next historical site. Save your money
Response from Host, Jan 2023
We are sorry to hear that the tour was a waste of money for you. To clarify, the duration of the tour is 3 hours, the guide he must manage the time to see everything. At each stop in a monument, we have enough time to see it, but we need to respect the time to see the other thing and not spending all the 3 hours in one monument. Thank you
Great information
Susan_W, Jan 2023
Great tour! Very informative. Learned so much more than if had gone on our own. Our tour guide was friendly and engaging. Would definitely recommend!
