Atlas Mountains and Three Valleys & Waterfalls - Camel ride Day Trip Marrakech

3,806 reviews
Exploring Morocco’s Atlas Mountains without a guide may mean missing out on Berber culture and scenic viewpoints. Yet, many group tours follow rigid itineraries that don’t allow for spontaneity during the day. This private tour delivers on all counts—with a local guide to arrange logistics and enable interaction with Berber villagers, and the flexibility to personalize your itinerary. A local lunch, optional camel ride, and Berber home visit are all included.

We knew nothing of this sight but had done a bit of research before our trip and learned of its existence that way. The sight is wonderful. The architecture is so amazing. In essence this is a sort of cemetery for the royal family, and in particular the Saadian Family who ruled in the 16th and 17th centuries. The whole building is immaculately kept and worth a visit. There are several tombs to see but the real attraction is the building. Unfortunately there is not much information on site so it might be worth reading up before hand, perhaps online!

This place is interesting and has beautiful architecture. You won’t get any information unless its guided but we enjoyed researching about it ourselves looking at things at our own pace.

Worth a visit, calm, tranquil and stunning architecture but difficult to understand what you're looking at. Woefully inadequate information provided which detracted from the experience.

The first thing you need to know is how to get in; it's not that easy! Our guide books indicated that the Tombs are accessed from the east side of the Kasbah Mosque, and there is a massive door and a sign for the tombs above it. But when we went, the door was locked, even though the books said they should be open. We could hear voices behind the door, but there was no clue to solve the mystery. So that day we gave up and went to the nearby El-Badi Palace instead. Before our second attempt, we studied the maps and decided we'd try the west side of the mosque first, and spotted a much smaller sign next to an insignificant alleyway. The sign was in Arabic and in Berber, and it was only when we got closer that we saw much smaller lettering underneath in French which told us we were in the right spot - no English at all! It's just off the Rue de la Kasbah, if that helps. What you need to know about the visit is that the best tomb decor is only viewable from a couple of doorways, so you'll probably have to queue. It wasn't too bad on the day we visited, but it probably gets a bit crowded at busy times, especially if there's an organised tour group in. So, as with the Majorelle Gardens, best go early! The decoration is tremendous, and the rest of the attraction is a pleasant garden area without the same crowding. And it's a nice refuge from the busy streets. Definitely worth a visit.

Saadian tombs are basically one small room, don't bother going if you here for 1 or 2 days. You have to queue for about 20 minutes to view/photo the room for 20 seconds. You don't step inside the tombs. Nice photos in the small grounds and a film screening of the restoration in french or English language.
