The meeting point was determined to be a little unfortunate (around 1 hour until you found each other). The tour was then exciting, the guide very friendly and competent. However, a tour of Marrakech as a tourist rather than a resident. Would have expected more about the everyday life of the local people.

A good introduction to get to know parts of the medina.

It was our first time in Marrakech. Thanks to our friendly local guide, we got a good overview of the immediate area, an orientation in the area in the medina, which was close to our accommodation. In addition, lots of information and tips on the subject of bargaining and shopping, eating, the life of the local people and, on request, information about the country.
