I came to Morrocco in November for my boyfriend's birthday. We decided to book to go to marrakech after finding a cheap flight with Easyjet from Manchester. What a holiday!!! With 26 degree weather at that time of year, who could complain?
Nari could not have been more welcoming and helpful. He advised us brilliantly on everything. He helped us organise a day trip before we arrived to the Ouzoud waterfalls where we jumped off the edge of a waterfall and fed wild monkeys :-) If we saw something at the souks which we were keen to buy but were not sure on how much to bargain for, all we had to do was take a photo, go back to the Riad and Nari would tell us how much it was worth maximum. He also walked us to an amazing restaurant that served fantastic food and organised for us to have a hammam followed by a full body massage (highly recommend to do this with your partner, as it was the most relaxing and romantic experience you could wish for!).
We were so sad to say goodbye but plan on going back to Riad Chez Lea in the future. I just wish we had chance to stay longer. Thank you Nari for helping make our trip easy and enjoyable.
Marrakech is a MUST go to place!! Full of friendly people. If you wish to ask someone on the street for directions, they are more than happy to give you a tour....just make sure you have some change to give to them as a tip afterwards as they are clued up on how to make money from tourists! Also, in the main square, if you are approached by Henna women, make sure you don't allow them to draw ANYTHING on your hand or they WILL demand money. Same applies to the snake charmers and men with monkeys.....once they place the animal on you, they will encourage you to take a photo for 'holiday memories' and then ask you for a ridiculous amount of money. Hope this review helps :-)
