Tours/Excursions

My friend and are visiting Marrakech for the first time and will be there for four nights. We are wanting to make the most of our trip and to ensure we see all the sights we were contemplating booking some private tours. Mainly we wanted to do a sunset camel tour and a private tour round the medina and all the sites (we really want to see the Palaces, Jardin Marjorelle and the souks) We were also contemplating day trips to the Ouzud waterfalls and/or the Atlas Mountains and perhaps even a hot air balloon. But there are so many tour companies out there and they all seem to have such mixed reviews, could anybody recommend one that is reliable and safe to use as well knowledgeable?

Many thanks

You don't need a tour to see the sights in Marrakech everything is walkable.

It's a very short trip so if you must have a day out the nearby mountains are most accessible.

Ciel d'Afrique are a well regarded balloon trip company.

Locaquad are just one company offering camel rides.

You are planning way to much.

Just buy a good guide book.

Most sites are easy walk from the main square.

Just do Marrakech and maybe a day trip to Eureka valley , ouzud falls or essouarra.

You can get a special high end bus trip from Supertours cheap.

You do not need a guide there just enjoy the Atlantic walled beach town. Oh and amazing fish.

Bus goes early am and gets back I think 2050.

Hi

I traveled so many times to Morocco. With only 5 days the best is city tour on your own in Marrakec, it's easy, and one day trip to Essaouira and one day trip to Atlas Mountains to know berber villages and people real life in Morocco.

Not to go Ouzoud there nothing interesting to see.

If you like i could recomended you one safety travel agency in Marrakech. They will take care of you and will show you the best of the country without stops in shops.
