un endroit où il fait bon se reposer

Around Marrakech : from the mountain to the see.

If you want to escape from the Medina, you have lots of possibilities.

For all your excursions, we suggest a service provider, widely recommanded by our customers.

The excursions are organised as privatives trips : for groups from 2 to 6 persons, as you wish.

However, if you prefer an other solution (taxi, car or bus rental), it will be a pleasure to inform and help you.
