Not to be missed guys! Wonderful experience, from start to finish. Waleed is by far the best guide we’ve experienced in Marrakech. He is willing to go above and beyond to exceed customer expectations. Myself and my partner had zero experience riding eScooters but Waleed stayed patient, taught us how to ride in a quite location and then took us on one of the most amazing tours of Marrakech! We got to see things like the Kings Palace, the Medina, various mosques and souks!! Unforgettable experience, thank you Waleeed!!

Amazing experience from start to finish. We got a little lost looking for the meeting point so we phoned our guide and she kindly came to meet us. 10/10 experience. Scooting through the souks and narrow market streets a must before leaving the city. Our guide was a lovely young girl who drove at safe but fun speed and always checked that we were enjoying ourselves. Would 100% recommend to a friend :)

A must see ! But above all, do not buy your entry ticket via this site! Their price is exaggerated and looks like theft when you know that the Menara gardens are free and that the entrance to the Majorelle garden is 120 DR (12 euros!). I paid 56 euros!!! OK, I had the transport but still it is abuse!!!

Wow. Great fun trip. Started out on roads but not for too long. Time to see a few sight round marrakech. Took us through the souks, unbelievable experience. You just have to go for it!

We had an amazing time with Yasmine. She was very patient as I was a novice, and adapted the planned tour to a more scenic route, instead of dodging tourists in the medina! Great fun.
