Thank you so much Luna for the excellent rating

We took two tours in the same day and I can say it was great. We absolutely loved it (booked the second at night cause we liked the one in the morning a lot). At night it was shorter, which was also great cause we didn’t really repeat what we had seen in the day tour, and got to try some local soup and tea with Ismael. After a tiring day, this was perfect to end it. Ismael is always ready to answer our questions, and tells us more not only about the city, but about the whole Morocco. Thank you so much Ismael for making our trip to Marrakech even better!

The tour was fun, informative and lasts exactly how I should last- not too long, not too short. Our group was very pleased and recommends it to tourists interested in night view at the city.
