What people are saying about Marrakesh-Safi

I ordered a 4-hour tour of Marrakech, so as not only to see the main sights and find out basic information, but to get into the spirit of the old imperial city .. I was lucky - I got much more than I expected .. I flew to Marrakech for only 3 days and just wanted to "feel the atmosphere" .. or as my guide Yaya says - "to become a part of Marakesh";) I was lucky: Yaya is a great guide who exactly shares the mood, atmosphere and spirit of the city .. We quickly found with him the general wave and the excursion were "not according to the script", namely "as desired": they missed something, emphasized on something .. I am grateful to Yaya from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful campaign, the feeling "to become local Marakesh guy" , for discovering interesting places, feelings and emotions that I will take home and will remember sunny Marrakech with a smile for a long time .. Thank you, Yaya!

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
