Lonely Planet Experiences: Marrakech Medina and Museums Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 4 hours
My husband and I recently took a 4 hour tour with Urban Adventures through the Medina, which took us to palaces, tombs, different quarters of the old city and the souks. Our guide (Youssef) was informative, easy-going, friendly and spoke excellent English. He happily answered all our questions and gave us time to look around and take pictures at each stop of tour. Although we were the only two signed up this particular day, we believe that the small sizes of the tours through Urban Adventures would still allow for an intimate and in-depth overview of Marrakech. We took our tour on our first full day in the city and afterward felt that we had a good understanding of the history and culture. The only thing I would have liked was more details on was how the souks and different trades got started. Nevertheless, we would recommend going through souks the first time with a guide and we would highly recommend this tour. It was one of the most memorable days of our trip to Marrakech.
It's a good way to go through most of the sites within the city. I did this on the first day of my trip and the 4 hours tour enabled me to know my way around the old city too. The tour guide was very friendly and there wasn't too much souvenir shops visits, which is much appreciated.
I had a wonderful morning with my tour guide, he was so knowledgable and I learnt a great deal about the history of Marrakech! As a solo female traveler I was made to feel completely comfortable. I would highly recommend
Bet great experience the guide was very helpful and answered all my questions. He knows great spots to take photos and often helps.
