We were a little disappointed with this "tour" as we were expecting the tour person to give some information about each sight and perhaps even walk with us through the souks or areas of Marrakech. Instead we were simply driven to the door of the sight, told we had an hour to return to the bus before driving to the next sight. We could have just ordered an ordinary taxi outside our hotel for this service.
The YSL gardens and Bahia Palace were worthwhile but the Saadiam tonbs are not worth the £7 entrance.
Please note that no entrance fees for the sights are included and its approx £7 per site (2019), so thats £21 on top of the tour price.
Our driver and tourguide Noureddine gave us a lot of information about the history and also about the ppl of today. It was a small group of 4 ppl and he made the tour individual for all of us. I would really recommend that tour and hopefully you'll have the same tourguide.
We were picked up on time for our tour which we thought would last for a morning but to our delight lasted for almost 8 hrs...it was fab! Our guide, Nour, was extremely friendly informative & enthusiastic. Would definitely recommend 😀😀😀😀😀
Disappointed with this tour - we were taken to the sights mentioned by our tour guide but I had neglected to read the exclusions in small print so we were unaware we had to pay 7 Euro per person for each site. This made a good value trip quite expensive with 42 euro extra added to the cost. We were also not taken around the first two stops by the guide - he just seemed to be a driver - the tombs and the palace, so we had no idea what we were looking at and there were no signs in English. On arrival at the gardens there was a long queue to get in and with the prospect of paying another 14 euro to look round a garden we decided not to stop and just went home. I think we could have found a better tour as I prefer to have someone tell me what I am looking at!
This tour was the best introduction to Marrakech. Our guide Noor was patient and eager to answer all our burning questions. He often went way beyond the call of duty to accommodate us,whether it asking us if we wanted to spend more time at certain places or catering to our needs when one of the members of our group mentioned that he would like to buy some saffron. He was nothing but warm and welcoming and the perfect example of Morrocan hospitality. Thank you for the wonderful welcome to, Marrakech.
the majorelle garden and YSL museum are must-visits - very picturesque! just a tad disappointed with the tour, as we were expecting more information from the guide cum driver besides just dropping us off at the touristic spots with basic descriptions. i'm sure it could have been more memorable!
Nour is a fantastic guide... he went above and beyond showing us the highlights of the city and surrounding area... We would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to find out about the culture and location of the many icons through to the City.
Marrakech is a city of culture, a city which offers a lot to see, explore and culture to discover. Our tour guide Nouradin, provided us with a lot of interesting information, and detailed explanations about history, buildings and landmarks in Marrakesh. I as a traveler, highly recommend this tour as you indulge more in the colourful culture of Marrakesh, especially with Nour.
