What You Can Expect

Marrakech Discovery Tour

Marrakech Discovery Tour

After a pickup at your Marrakech hotel or central meeting point, board your air-conditioned vehicle and drive to the medina in the old city.

Follow your guide on foot through the atmospheric streets. Absorb the bustling souks and peruse the textiles, spices and other wares on sale as you hear tales of the medina’s history.

Head for the central square of Djemaa El Fna and marvel at the spectacle of food stalls and street entertainers, including the theatrics of dancers, snake charmers and magicians. 

Visit the Bahia Palace, a late 19th-century residence built for two of Morocco’s sultans and designed to be one of the most beautiful palaces of its time. Admire the gorgeous pavilions and main courtyard decorated with mosaics and fountains, and then move on to the Saadian Tombs, a group of intricately tiled sultans’ mausoleums first discovered in 1917. 

Enjoy a delicious lunch at a medina restaurant, and afterward, tour some of Marrakech’s historical highlights.

Snap photos of the Koutoubia Mosque and see the Dar El-Bacha hammam and Ben Youssef Medersa college, among other sites, as you learn why and how they were built.

Your tour ends with a drop-off at your accommodation.

This tour was great! We got a slightly late pickup from our location specially arranged at no extra charge. The palace was beautiful and the lunch was great. Walking through the market was really fun, and Mickey took us to see many artisan souks. He even asked if we wanted to see or do something specific, then took me to a shop to buy what I was looking for. Mickey was very friendly and full of great information about the sights on the walking tour.

I had a fabulous day. It was my first time visiting Marrakech and as a single female traveller who only speaks little French and no Arabic I found the thought of visiting the Souks on my own extremely daunting. The tour gave me confidence to explore on my own, showed me what and #39;s where and what and #39;s what.

It was a very good tour with guide Mickey. Very relaxed, no rush, planty of time and lots of useful information. Fantastic lunch has been included in the price. The group was very small 6 people and we all had a lovely chat during the meal. The only problem - I was sure, I was going to be picked up from my hotel- didn't notice an information about the meeting point!!! But after my call to an emergency number, extra pick up - just for me only- has been immediately arranged with no extra costs!!! SUPER PROFESIONAL. Thank you very much Viator for a great day in Marrakech. 100 will use your services again, even go on the same trip, when I'm back in town.
