Visited the palaces via a thomsons trip. It was lucky we had a decent guide aziz who I had before on a previous excursion. Lucky for us he knows his stuff, not one of my most favourite trips, but I as part of history of Marrakech walk. Oh be prepared for lots of walking so wear good shoes. You will need to negotiate the narrow streets trying not to get run over by the hundreds of bikes that do drive through the souks, be aware at all times so please please do not think of using headphones walking around the souks, it can be pretty dangerous. The palace was so so, it was good that they have preserved their heritage, but toilets in this place are vile and they asked us for money as we left disgusted...sorry fix up your facilities and then maybe people would be happy to tip.
