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

Unsere Tour mit unserem Guide Soufiane, der perfekt Deutsch sprach, war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis. Er holte uns pünktlich vor unserem Riad ab und zeigte uns alle Sehenswürdigkeiten. Wir waren zu Fuss unterwegs - am Nachmittag im Minivan mit Fahrer. Seine grossen Kentnisse über Kultur, Geschichte und Politik liessen die Zeit unheimlich schnell vergehen. Danke Soufiane für einen tollen Tag. Die Tour ist eine volle Empfehlung

Magnificent place steeped in history. Thanks to our guide, through his explanations and his kindness, we were able to travel through time and understand the meaning of this exceptional palace.Do not hesitate to take your time and admire the painting, the carved door, and the Koranic school

Notre chauffeur et guide était extrêmement gentil et nous a donné une série d'informations intéressantes sur Marrakech. Il en est de même de la personne qui a mené la ballade en dromadaire. Il était très convivial et très attentionné vis-à-vis des enfants.

Wonderful day. Lots of information. Brought us to places we would have never found on our own. Highly recommend.
