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.!

Excellent. A complete tour of Marrakech with its unmissable highlights. Hakim was a wonderful guide recounting the ancient and modern history of this beautiful bustling city. He was attentive, available and discreet. We were all charmed. The private car made available to us was comfortable and spacious. We recommend ! Thanks again

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!!!

Our guide hicham was very attentive, funny which made our outing very pleasant. I highly recommend.

Excellent guide. Knowledgable, professional and caring. Ismail was fantastic.
