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.

Mekki the guide was the best thing in the whole tour. It and #39;s a walking tour so be ready for hitting beyond your target step count. Full of things to see so stay focused. The lunch was tasty and beautiful. I highly recommend it

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.

What an amazing day around Marrakech with our guide Aziz, He showed us as much as he could pack into a day and a superb lunch in a beautiful restaurant included in the price. Saw the Medina, Bahia, Mosque, Souks, College museum, Berber museum and the Royal cemetery as well as stopping at a herb and spice specialist and given time to explore the main square. Absolute bargain and a must do for anyone travelling to Morroco. Superb value for money and much better than wondering around alone getting hassled of the locals, who are a nightmare, especially in the square.

Fantastic friendly guides who looked after everyone. Having the bus to jump onto between visits was handy, and worked very well. Good to have all entrance fees covered in the price, so we could just walk straight in to everything. My only slight qualm is I felt we were a little rushed through the souks - but it would be hard to stop and huddle around our guide in such a dense and busy place. Lunch was chicken tagine - of course - in a restaurant that seems to cater for large tour groups.

EXCELLENT TOUR.
We did think oh no, when a full TUI coach arrived, and we were part of the group.
Even with a large group, the tour was handled efficiently and there were no problems.
Excellent knowledge of Marrakech, and lunch was also excellent.
Good Value for the money paid.
