We were staying right at the door step. I would recommend visiting this place, don’t read the reviews of the bad and experience it for yourself. People are friendly, respect the culture and absorb the life. I will be returning for sure. I love Marrakech...More

Hi there. We went on this tour by ourselves. It is very easily done and you actualy don't need a guide for Jemma el Fna. Easily accessible during a day/night. Have fun.
