What people are saying about Marrakech

Great little walk around the mountains and insight into local culture!

Good value trip to see some of the countryside outside Marrakech. The stops on the way were good for photos of the views and the little oil production talk was interesting. Didn't feel pushed into buying anything, although did get a souvenir anyway. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, we spoke in both French and English. I don't think we would have been able to learn as much if speaking in just English, but could have discussed most things without a problem. Again there were items for purchase on our walk to see the falls and around the villages, but nothing pushy. The lunch was great, catering for a vegetarian, and our walk back and drive home were fine. Not particularly strenuous for anyone in a somewhat fit shape. Good shoes would help, but not necessary, mine had poor grip, but I managed fine. Very little waiting around compared to what we expected from reviews of group tours. Only criticism is aircon wasn't turned on in the car, but we didn't ask. Overall a good excursion.

Such a great way to see parts you wouldn’t normally venture into!

We were 4 women travelling alone and as I had heard the markets could be intimidating we decided to get a guide. From the moment we met our guide he made us feel safe and comfortable. There was a tour planned but we were asked if there was anything we wanted to buy or see and he changed tour for us to go where we wanted. We went into the heart of the markets into courtyards and back streets you would never go to and saw so much of the non tourist areas. So so pleased we got a guide and we are already planning our next trip and will definitely book again

A lovely place and worth the long drive.

Getting collected from your Riad makes the difference. Once on the minibus you head off to Essaouira, it’s a long drive but you get a couple of stops on the way. You get dropped off by the fishing port and the guide (included in the price) takes you on a 90 min walking tour, then it is free time until you head back to Marrakesh. There are many places to eat around the main square and port, fresh fish is the best option. You get dropped off back at your Riad/hotel at the end of the day. Definitely worth visiting.

Good value for money but not much time to explore

Good value for money transport wise. The tour party was very big and the tour guide had to translate in both English and french which made everything a bit cumbersome. The tour itself was interesting but ate up a lot of the free time we had in the town- this didn’t leave a lot of time for exploring. If I could go again I would likely skip the tour and explore the town instead.

Karim was a Great Guide and the trip was a very nice experience!

The trip and Karim are great. Though of course we stoped on all the touristic attraction and were not that interesting. Karim was very flexibel and told us to tell him where we would like to stop and so was it... we walked around a Dates Plantage that was not on the plan.
