What people are saying about Azrou

It was an amazing experience, they were all very accommodating especially towards our 3 kids 6, 10 and 12 so don't be afraid to take your kids. They even upgraded us into a tent with a private bathroom. Our drive Hassan was very knowledgeable and took into account the kids like food, feeding the money's, donkey and camel rides. In the end he took us to a very colorful place were they make plates and the owners etc the kids make and color their own plates and cups. There is nothing wrong that I can say about this. Thank you all and we will see you again for sure.

I enjoyed the tour a great deal! Our guide, Youssef was a very nice person and also a knowledgeable guide. He answered patiently at all our questions about the Berber culture and about the places we saw during the tour. The lunch provided in one of the Berber villages (Chicken tajine with vegetables) i can say it was the best tajine I had during my stay in Marrakech :) I have only words of praise for this tour! Best regards, Youssef! :)
