This tour has given us a lasting impression of the pulsating Marrakech. Our guide Amrane responded to our requests and led us into the small streets off the tourist trails. We saw a lot in this short time and learned a lot about the habits of the Moroccans! Highly Recommended!

Our guide Ismail was very knowledgeable and made our tour a great experience. We learned a lot about the culture and history, and the best part was Bahia Palace. In the souks he asked us in advance if there is anything we want to see or buy and there was no unpleasant experience of taking us to shops we don’t want to go. On top of everything he was very good at taking pictures and we have some lovely memories.

Der Reiseführer Amrane hat uns sehr pünktlich an unserer Riad abgeholt und dort mit uns unsere Tour geplant. Wir waren positiv überrascht, dass die Tour nur mit meiner Freundin, mir und Amrane stattgefunden hat. So konnten wir alle unsere Tourwünsche und Fragen individuell äußern. Amrane konnte sehr gutes Deutsch sprechen, wodurch wir viel über die Kultur, Geschichte, Sehenswürdigkeiten, Politik, Bildung und marokkanisches „Geheimwissen“ erfahren konnten. Deshalb konnten wir extrem viele positive Eindrücke von der Stadt Marrakesch, sowie dem Land Marokko gewinnen. Letztendlich würden wir diese Tour jedem deutschsprachigen Touristen, der zum ersten Mal zu Besuch in Marrakesch ist, weiterempfehlen. Vielen Dank nochmal Amrane!
