This was an amazing day. Well worth the journey on the bus for 3 and half hours each way. The sights and sounds were brilliant. Arkham was a good guide very knowledgeable however he had two coach loads of people to look after which meant a lot of time wasted whilst waiting for others. If there were a smaller amount of people it would have been much easier to hear what he was saying and to follow in the souks. Was still a great day would definitely recommend.

We had never visited Morocco before and wanted to experience something away from the main centres so decided to visit Taroudant. We weren't disappointed as it was completely different to what we had encountered before. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for different culture.

The excursion is really interesting to discover the main aspects of Marrakech. To do if you come to Morocco absolutely! We ate at an excellent restaurant otherwise.

Unforgettable! Very good guide, magnificent scenery, lots of information and great opportunities to take photos.

The collection and the transport worked perfectly. The group was manageable. The guide was very accommodating.
