Excellent experience! I had a brilliant day exploring the Majorelle gardens and the hammam was incredible. I was exploring as a solo traveller for the day and was a little nervous as it was my first time in Marrakesh but I felt very looked after. The driver was prompt with pick ups and drop offs, and the women at the hammam were very kind, I had the best massage. Would highly recommend.!

Accompanied by local Assan guide, excellent person, well trained, who took us to places that we otherwise would not have seen.
