It is a worthwhile trip, we enjoyed it very much. There are many days and hotels and transfers, local guides. I imagine it is very difficult to organize the logistics of all this. We just didn't like the first day's guide that just focused on taking us into stores to buy stuff and earn commissions. He didn't take a break for lunch, he didn't stop by the souks around Jemaa El Fna square and he also removed the Menara Garden from the itinerary on his own. I suspect he removed the Menara Garden as it is a public garden and he earns no commission from it. We had lunch at 4 pm and we were starving. Apart from that, the rest was very nice, we got to know many things even in Morocco and I can say that it was worth it. Hotels are good, everything functional. I would do it again and recommend it. Points for the Dino guide.

Gardens are beautiful and definitely worth the visit but this is a 1 hour activity! So it was nice combination with the camel ride to fill up the afternoon. Camel ride was a very enjoyable experience! It was in the suburbs of Marrakech but you don’t get anything less than what you would otherwise in Afgay dessert. Our driver Khalid was super professional and minivan very comfortable!

An amazing trip that gave you a sense of the authentic Moroccan culture. The guide Akram was outstanding, his calm approach and knowledge eased any trepidation entering the big square and alleyways of Marrakesh. food was excellent on a rooftop terrace, and all instructions were clear and precise. the advice given was invaluable. yip highly recommended great job team

It was beautifully landscaped. I expected more blooming flowers, but maybe it was because it’s January. Long lines though. Better to pre buy your tickets and only wait in one line, then two long lines (one to buy and one to wait in queue with your paid ticket).

Lovely tour for our first day in the country. Friendly and helpful guide too! Went off peak so the group was just me and my friend but we had a fantastic time and felt very safe too
