Tour companies advertise their offerings in the lobby area of most of the larger hotels. You could even discuss tailor made excursions with the reps who will be more than happy to oblige. Times and days will be displayed when the rep will be at a particular hotel.

There is no shortage of smaller independent tour operators in the Gueliz district who will be highly visible; whilst my advice is to check they have the correct documents to operate, it isn't easy to see this information.

With the smaller independent operators it is far easier to negotiate better deals than with the larger ones advertising in hotels

I would advise to book them online in advance. We waited until we were in marrakech to book excursions and they were dearer.

The rep that comes to the hotels is very expensive, we then spoke to the hotel manager who gave us a better price however it was still more expensive than booking them online.
