During my booking arrangements Christian and Isabelle gave me a confidence that they ran a well organised operation. When I arrived after a long drive from the south Christian met me at Bab Mellah and took me to the Riad a short walk away. He explained everything and although I have been to Marrakech previously I found it useful. The... More

Even before we arrived our hosts Isabelle and Christian were most attentive - we had emailed to ask about various trips and they put our mind at rest saying they could organise these once we arrived.
