    We took a half day tour of Marrakech. This is the best introducing tour of the city, when you are the first time in Marrakech - area & places, history, etc.. I recommend this tour in the first days of your staying in Marrakech. The tour was very customized to our needs and all

    Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. This tour is great to orient you in this confusing maze. He helped us find some places that would have been hard to find.

    It is much better to have a local guide to take us to see the attractions around Medina. At least no one hassle us when they see us with a local guide. The guide was knowledgeable and I am pleased I joined this tour.
