Marrakech Rouge Awful Riad & desert trip from Marrakech

Awful from the beginning, Marrakech Rouge hostel is one of the worest hostel ive stayed in, we book a shared desert tour with them and it was awful as well, our non-english speaking driver managed to be more courteous and attentive than our so called 'english speaking guide' who could barely get a sentence out... he did not understand us and it was horrible. It was obviously his first time as the driver had to tip him off whenever he should be speaking and wasn't. Even then he would read straight from his booklet, word for word.

I would have preferred us just travelling with the driver as the guide was unknowledgeable, uninspiring, flat, just an all-round awkward trip.

complete waste of money

Why did you continue with the trip, once you discovered that the guide was not fluent in English? You must have known that almost immediately.

Maybe they would not give the money back. However, you've made the point. Before one books a day trip or longer trips he should make sure he speaks to the driver or guide to test out his knowledge of English. It's quite frustrating to drive hundreds of miles in silence or broken English
