The Marrakech city tour – private half day guided tour was pretty much perfect in every kind of way. The meeting point was easy to navigate and find, and the local guide and driver were very professional on arrival. In addition to that, our local guide was friendly, clear and had a lot of knowledge which he shared with us very well. Additionally, the Marrakech sights are absolutely huge, and I feel that without a guided tour, you would end up needing an entire day to have a look round. Overall, the tour was great in this sense as it focused on the highlights, made us not feel too rushed at any spot. Eventually, would definitely recommend it. Well done!
