Description

Enjoy a private or shared group guided walking tour through bustling Marrakech. Admire some of its major landmarks including Jemaa el-Fnaa Square, the Koutobia Mosque, the Saadian Tombs, and the Bahia Palace. Meet your guide in front of Café de France, an iconic landmark on Marrakech’s bustling Jemaa el-Fnaa Square. First, discover the majesty and vibrancy of Marrakech’s medina. Then admire the Koutobia Mosque and its massive minaret, the largest in the city. Learn about the stunning architecture and fascinating history of this highlight of any visit to Marrakech. Explore the Saadian Tombs, sealed for centuries until their rediscovery in 1917. Marvel at the ornate carvings in a Hispano-Moorish style that frames the crypts of a 16th-century royal family.  Afterwards, head to the equally ornate Bahia Palace, a 19th-century royal dwelling intended to be the most splendid palace of its time. See the elaborately painted ceilings, manicured gardens replete with fruit trees, and elaborate stucco patterns adorning almost every surface of the building. To cap the tour off, stroll through the buzzing souks, with their wide array of local artisans and craftspeople. Your guide will give you insider tips about the best stalls. Finish back at the Jemaa el-Fnaa square, where locals meet every day to enjoy the storytellers, musicians, and performers.
