Jardin Majorelle

Nicely designed and maintained Gardens, similar to those of Generalife in Granada, Spain. It’s a good place to recoup from the intensity of the market atmosphere.

Reviewed By AndyandRebecca - Leicester, United Kingdom

Stunning, beautiful - what more can be said that hasn't already been said about this garden! The extraordinary contrast between the famous bright blue and the cool colours of the planting ... The scale of the plants and interweaving paths ... The beautiful views and vistas ... We LOVED it!

Musee des Sources de Lalla Mimouna

Reviewed By julianedge - Manchester, United Kingdom

... it might sound like the bubbles rising through clear water in the central pool of this astonishing ethnographic, ecological, spiritual monument to one man's visionary purpose. If you travelled in southern Morocco and visited no other place than this, you would not have wasted your time. Fascinating and deeply moving.

Le Paradis du Safran

Reviewed By Jane W - Bedford, United Kingdom

We followed the signs on the main Marrakech to the Atlas Mountains road to the Paradis du Safran, not knowing what to expect. We were welcomed by Christine who explained the various routes around this small, accessible and imaginative property navigating the diverse herbs/fruit/sensory experiences. It was very interesting and enjoyable. The 'recyclable/degradbale board' fascinated us all. It was all very interesting and the final activity of the 30 minute route of herb infused footbaths, salt scrubs and argan oil was a delight. A herbal tea ending sealed it off. Highly recommended.

Bivouac sous les Etoiles

Located around 35km from the Algerian border in the extreme south-east corner of Morocco lies M`Hamid, gateway to the desert. " Bivouac sous les Etoiles " organizes visits or touring treks. These treks will familiarize you with an area steeped in local traditions, magnificent landscapes whose beauty is surpassed only by their size, where the people are friendly and open.

Reviewed By Noiky548 - Madrid, Spain

We booked the classical 48-hour tour from Mhamid: 1 day by camel in a bivouac and 1 day by 4WD to Chigaga. Hamza and the two camel guys were really helpful, always willing to share interesting stories about Berbere culture and cooking delicious meals! :) Would recommend 100%!

raid buggy

Based in Marrakech, Raid Buggy organises daily trips in the Atlas Mountains with selfdrived buggies.

Reviewed By SheldanNorwich - Norwich

This is an amazing lifetime experience; thrills guaranteed from start to finish. Well organised and planned by Alexis from start to finish a great day spent blasting through the Moroccan desert regions with sights that will stay with us forever.
From isolated villages with children rushing out to greet you (and give you five) to amazing views in the Agafay Desert travelling almost vertical at times at very high speed with screams a plenty.
After booking our trip to Morocco we wanted to book an adrenalin rush and discovered Raid Buggy following a search on-line. We contacted Alexis, who was very helpful, and made an advanced booking to make the Lac Takerkoust and Agafay desert Raid. We were picked up at 8 am in the Medina and taken to the Buggies, our adventure began shortly. First stop was tea and pastries with honey, then onwards to Lake Takerkoust for Lunch with amazing views. Back in the buggy for a blast through the desert, hang on to your phone though as my iPhone is currently residing in the dunes! We then made our back across the planes and were privileged to see true rural Morocco. Returned to base around 4.30pm and then delivered back to the Medina in Marrakech by 5pm.
Recommended to anyone looking for a break from the insanity that is Marrakech. If we come back to Morocco it will be to see Alexis and book a 3 day Raid to see more of this beautiful country and possibly the Sahara.

Gorges du Dades

Reviewed By zachnyc - New York City

The twisting hairpin turns are exhilarating and provide dramatic views of the Atlas Mountains and valley below. This is where Cadillac filmed its amazing commercial for the 2012 ATS. The scenery is breathtaking with sheer cliffs, Mountains, valley, and river combining to paint a dramatic scene.
The nearby valley provides ample hiking opportunities. We got separated from our guide who had to help another person traveling with us take an easier route. A local small boy, who we had met earlier when we stopped to use his families squat toilet, somehow found us and rescue us and reunited us with our guide.In reality, we were never lost at all but only had to transverse a small muddy farming area for about 100 yards to reach our destination. When all was said and done, it was a great adventure and an authentic experience with both nature and locals.

Legzira Beach

Reviewed By lacm2016 - Brighton, United Kingdom

We loved this gorgeous beach. We caught a bus from Mirleft to Sidi Ifni and then hitch hiked to Legzira. We were there in the late afternoon planning to watch the sun turn the arch even more red but a bizarre sea most made the view hazy. Luckily we'd already got a good view and enjoyed a picnic on a rock. It's just a 5-10min stroll from the car park to the arch. There and restaurants below the carpark.

Experience traditional Morocco as only a Moroccan family would demonstrate. Ideal travel treat to see a kasbah and how families live. Make sure to hire a guide.

Tramway Rabat-Sale

Reviewed By Ibrahim G - East London, South Africa

Tram tickets cost just 6Dirham for an Adult and 3 Dirham for a child, the tram offers access between both towns and stops at the major attractions.
Note the tram line isnt tourism focused and as such it doesn't address what attractions are at each stop so research what stop before you go. Tickets are brought from the ticket office at each station or sometimes automated machines, once on train you must stamp it into the machines as the locals do to validate journey, also ticket guards are frequent and friendly.
