We had a lovely morning running in to early afternoon & even threw in an extra detour via the Palmerie to show us some baby camels &whistle stop fir done refreshing mint tea. He is a Berber and suggested some other interesting overnight excursions left us his card for when we return again. Would definitely use him and his company again &would not hesitate to recommend him &this tour. The only thing I would suggest is less time at Menard 30 minutes as there is only really a lake there, but really peaceful, and the extra 40 minutes at La Majorelle gardens as we would have liked a little longer there. The gardens at La Majorelle were amazing.

What people are saying about Marrakech

The majorelle gardens are truly beautiful and worth a visit, this combined with the camel ride was a great way to get both done at the same time without having to arrange a whole day and without the hassle of trying to book a taxi. Lots of photo opportunities while on the camel make this a great tour and the cost was a lot cheaper than I had seen elsewhere and which also included the entrance fee to the gardens and Berber museum (which wasn’t so interesting for me at least but is part of the gardens) highly recommend. Camels seemed happy and well fed and looked after which was important

Such a relaxing day outside of the busy streets of the centre! Our transfer was on time both to and from the waterpark and we had such a lovely day instead the park. The rides kept us content as well as it having a wave pool and lazy river. The fact it looks like a garden added even more to the experience as you could lay in the grass for hours! Would highly recommend for a relaxing day if the markets become too hectic.

The park was quiet on the day of our visit, so no queues and lots of fun! The park is beautiful and serene, several different areas to enjoy like the restaurant, the pool and of course all the waterslides and rivers :) It was everything we could have hoped for in a relaxing yet adventurous day.

A beautiful park for adventure or quiet time! I went the quiet route and mostly spent the day in the lazy river and wave pool. Number of visitors are limited so at points it feels like you have the whole park to yourself. Really beautiful park with tons of opportunity to relax

The guide was excellent ,the tribal clothes were comfortable and protected us from sun’s rays. It was a great experience.
