I felt this was quite an expensive visit. The tombs are beautiful, however it is only possible for a few people at a time to view the main areas of interest which leads to long queues. The site is small so if a tour arrives...More

In Marrakech it seems they now charge tourists 7 euros for every attraction or museum. Some are worth the money, like majorele gardens or bahia palace but this one for sure is not worth it. The place and the tombs are quite beautiful but its...More

My husband and I love to discover the history of places we visit, which is why we put Saadian Tombs on our Marrakech itinerary. The guide books are correct, it is a small site. We spent most of the time in a queue to see...More

Just outside the Medina one stop on your history tour should be the Saadian Tombs. Go with a guide so you know what you are looking at, or read up on your own. It's a pretty place and doesn't take long to see.

There is not a lot to see here but it is a peaceful spot in the middle of the city. We did not have a guide for this so it may be more interesting if you know what you are looking at but basically it...More

In the interest of saving your time and money, I strongly recommend to skip this one. Apparently they recently changed the admission fee from 10 Dirham to 70 (around 7 eur at the time of writing this). Apparently all good reviews are from before this...More

Hello - the tombs are visited by many visitors so I would imagine that it's open at least 10-4, but I can't be sure.
