Description

Take a guided walking tour of Marrakech to discover this medieval desert enclave's beautiful and spectacular treasures. Stroll through the old medina with a local guide. Benefit from fast access to the Bahia and Badii Palaces, then pay an optional visit to the Saadian Tombs. Begin your walking tour by passing the ruins of Sultan Ahmed El Mansour's 16th-century Grand Badi Palace. Catch a glimpse of the former affluence of this majestic city. Learn about how, at the height of its glory, the palace was considered the 8th wonder of the world. Then, continue your tour to the Bahia Palace, the jewel in the crown of Marrakech and a monument of breathtaking magnificence. Head inside to find out how it was constructed in the latter part of the 19th century and took the most skilled workers and artisans 6 years to complete. Finally, pay an optional visit to the Saadian Tombs, sealed for centuries until their rediscovery in 1917. Hear about how the tombs date back to the time of Sultan Ahmad al-Mansur. See the 2 main mausoleums within the enclosure, consisting of 66 tombs with 100 more lying outside the gardens.
