I absolutely LOVED this experience. Having the private driver made stops, photos, and asking questions so easy and pleasant. My driver, Mustafa Ourzazate, was the best! He didn't rush the experience, he answered all my questions and held great conversation, and took the time to show me around some special spots. He didn't mind when I nodded off for a brief nap (traveling for days can be tiring), and he was so considerate - I didn't feel any pressure to keep constant conversation, and was able to rest and just enjoy. My guide for the Ait Ben Haddou tour, Imod, was so cool! He was knowledgable, funny, spoke clear English, and taught me a bit of Berber, too. I highly recommend hiring the private driver for your experience ~ it is worth the little bit extra, you'll get to see more, and you'll be comfortable in the vehicle. I recommend using this service for the guide ~ maybe you COULD go through on your own, but you'd be missing a special opportunity to connect with a really cool native.

The tour was of the Koutoubia Mosque garden and the Marjorelle garden, both lovely. This was not explained in the Get Your Guide listing for this excursion. Unfortunately, I had previously booked and done a full day tour of Marrakech and that tour also covered the Koutoubia garden and the Marjorelle garden so it was a duplicate. I am not complaining - I enjoyed both the second time. However people need to know exactly what they are getting so they can decide for themselves whether to book or not.

Great tourist complex. Very lively. With songs, dances and shows before, during and after dinner. Set in different regions of Morocco. Very abundant and very good food. All very well organized. Magnificent activity that will not disappoint you

I am super happy and can totally recommend it. I had some questions and I send an email and got the answer really fast. The car super clean and spacious. The driver very polite and the best was the guide. He was super nice and carrying.

Everything was perfect! The guide was great, she explained everything to us without haste!
