We read about this show on Trip Advisor, so made sure were in town at the end of the week and booked well ahead. A magical setting in an underground cavern with red velvet curtains and tealight candles guiding you down the stairs. You are greeted as soon as you arrive. We got there early enough to try their superb... More

What's great about Marrakech is the intimacy. You can get there an hour before the show and have drinks and appetizers and meet the magician as he comes out to meet you. You then go into a small "theater" and enjoy the show, which he does extremely well. I have never been to a magic show before, and seeing this... More

Wonderful, highly-skilled sleight-of-hand magic, done in very close quarters. I sat on the front row and could not see how he accomplished his incredible feats. My grandchildren were mesmerised.

We booked tickets for this show during our visit to San Francisco because of the good reviews on Tripadvisor - and we weren't disappointed. We arrived early for some drinks (you should definately do this!) and Peter came around the bar before the show, intruducing himself and chatting individually to the different guests. He then showed us some close up... More

Peter is an accomplished master in his trade. He used multiple participants from the audience. Unveiling his story of how he arrived to where he is today all the while performing tricks that are not easy to figure out. A fun evening for all of us in a very intimate setting. He's a personality you won't soon forget. If you... More

I had booked tickets basically to fill an evening, but this show turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. The atmosphere, the pre-show drinks, and dazzling tricks that had us spending the night asking 'how on earth did he do that?!' Even if you're not particularly into magic, this is one of those shows that will... More

We have just come home from Peter's show. It is quite simply the most amazing show we've ever seen. There are literally things appearing and disappearing before your very eyes. He also appears to read minds. My husband is not easy to impress at the best of times but on this particular night he was even harder to entertain as... More

Before the show, the magician met with the crowd in the lounge and performed some extremely impressive close up magic (card tricks). The magic show was filled with lots of classic magic tricks which were very well executed. He uses the audience at a personal level and gets everyone involved. The magician was very funny and presented his tricks extremely... More

We had a fantastic evening at the magic theater. Peter really knows how to put on a show. The intimate setting is also what sets this show apart from others. He personally meets and greats everyone before the show with a personal magic trick for your group. He totally wowed my teenagers, they had know idea what we were in... More
