early start but not a problem. driver contacted me the morning of pickup to confirm collection location. swapped onto a bigger coach and travelled as a massive group to marrakech. Guide was brilliant, walk around the medina and lunch on a rooftop bar. Guide explained about henna tattoos, monkey handlers and generally things to remember whilst in your free time. more than enough free time after lunch. highly recommended if you are not staying in marrakech.

We had some miscommunication in the beginning but it was resolved professionally. Really enjoyed the trip, we opted to just explore by ourselves and even though we got rained on and absolutely soaked we still had a great time

Aziz was a great guide with whom me and my friend had a great day! Despite the bad tempers of the other passengers who accompanied us… I 100% recommend this excursion 🤍

Perfect trip to get an insight into the culture of the country. Salah is a very nice and hard-working guide! 100% recommendation :)

Fantastic from start to finish. Nice coach and driver stops on the way. Guide was so lovely and helpful. All in all a great trip.
