“Avoid! A tourist Trap!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

It is not providing a dissent show for a tourist. the belly dancer performance was week (understatement). The food is mediocre. the horse riding fantasia was poor an without any meaning. Only the 4 horse riders which make acrobatic on horse worth the effort. Spend your time and money in Marrakesh elsewhere.

“Pathetic”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Nothing special to say about the food. You can't eat in peace because of those screaming ladies running and moving all around the place. It could have been funny and interesting (learning about ethnies, etc.) but it was not, just screaming ladies in colorful clothes.

The final show was just comical, featuring some lone lady cycling her 3 dance moves for 10 minutes, horsemen firing their rifles in the air, people wandering around... all of this with the "Back to the Future" OST as musical accompaniment ! The funniest part was when a horse kicked out his rider and ran around for 5 minutes before they finally caught him.

You better go to the circus if you want to laugh !

“Do not go....”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

This was terrible ...do not waste your money....The show was full of people dressed up who did not want to be there ..they looked miserable ...as soon as we arrived a man on a horse insisted I had my photo taken with him and them put his hand out and said 'money..money'...I realised then what we were in for. The show was dark, terrible and long and mainly consisted of people dressed up walking from one end to the other. We got cold watching it and just sat on cold concrete slab steps. The meal was OK...but we had wrongly assumed that tea was included ..silly us...and drinks were quite expensive..wine £15 a bottle...The whole thing was an expensive waste of time.....do something more Morrocan...do not waste your money on this pathetic..expensive farce....

“Marrakesh night out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Yes it's very touristy, but it is a good night out, the food is passable but it is an entertaining evening, the supplied taxi driver was courteous and informative so overall no complaints

“An ok show”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

I seen a few of these shows before. It certainly wasn't the worst but then again it wasn't one of the best. The food was ok, nothing to write home about. The show would have been a lot better if I could have seen more of it. The actual arena the show was held was too dark, should have had more lighting. A little overpriced too.
