Followed the other advice and got there before the crowds, this is a small site with tight access and the viewing options are restricted in places. 70 dirams to get in which is moderate, you can take a guide if you want once inside. You...More

My wife and I walked to the tombs with all intentions of going in. Apparently all of the sites have undergone recent ticket increases. At a cost of 70 dh, or about $7USD, this site is priced way too high. For reference, both of the...More

'The Saadian Tombs are where the Sultan, his family and important member of his court were buried. Apparently there was originally much more gold but the tiles and mausoleums are still quite impressive. You do need to queue to get a look through the doorway...More

with genuine respect to those buried there, I find the entrance fee charged (70DH for age 12+) an absolute disgrace for a tiny location like this. My guide book (a few years old) noted it was 10DH - so what is with the 7 fold...More

We had this place at our bucket list for Marrakesh and we did not regret the visit. The place is well documented. The stucco’s and the ceiling are definitely worth admiring. The access is easy and entrance fee moderate.

Interesting but too crowded. The video (in French) about the finding of the place and the restoration work is more interesting that the place itself

Had to que for about 15mins cost of £6, well worth it if you like mosaics, the ceilings of the tomb's are exceptional. Quiet a small site but worth a visit and next to the Kasbah

It's really hard to appreciate the Saadian Tombs because the lines are so long and it is so crowded. I think that there are far more interesting places to visit in Marrakech.
