Day trip from Casablanca to Marrakech Reviews
Full-Day Private Tour to Marrakech from Casablanca
This trip should have been called a shopping trip to Marrakech. The driver was punctual and friendly, but it would have been very nice for him to mention that there was a clean and hot western toilet inside the gas station rather than letting us go to the cold eastern toilet in the open air closest to our rest area. As soon as we arrived in Marrakech, we were entrusted to a local guide. He asked us what we wanted to see and we told him everything. In fact, it was for all the tourist businesses in the Medina. They responded to our request to be dropped off at the riad rather than brought back to Casablanca. It was a good way to transport us between the two cities with our luggage, but could have been a lot better if the driver had driven to points of interest outside of Medina. There is more to Marrakech than just shopping in the Medina. We would have preferred to see it.

My husband and I took this trip and we can only describe it as amazing. The owner Said was quick to respond to our calls and was very helpful and friendly. Asis, the chauffeur, picked us up on time at our hotel and dressed to impress. He was very accommodating and extremely respectful. He could tell that he was very proud of his country and his king. The trip to Marrakech was very pleasant. When we arrived we had a guide who gave us a very complete and interesting tour of the city. Unfortunately, I don’t remember his name, but he was also amazing. He would recommend this tour to anyone. Truly.
