What You Can Expect

Marrakech Medina Walking Tour Including Bahia Palace and the Photography Museum

Experience Marrakech

Begin your small-group walking tour of Marrakech in Djemaa El-Fna, the bustling central square in the medina. Your local guide will lead you through the maze of souqs -- or markets -- and vendors and escort you through the confusing alleyways of the medina, the old part of Marrakech. Instead of having to worry about finding your way around, you'll be able to marvel at the many carpet shops, spice stalls and artisans you pass.

Your first stop is Bahia Palace (Palais de Bahia). Wander the numerous rooms and courtyards and admire the mosaics, woodwork and fountains as your guide shares tales of the sultans who once lived here with their wives, concubines and slaves.

Next, head back into the medina with your guide and stop at a local bakery. See how locals prepare their own bread at home but bring it here to be baked. You'll get to taste some of the delicious bread on offer before moving on to another spot in the medina where the traditional dish tanjia is prepared.

Continue your tour at the Photography Museum of Marrakech, which has a collection of 4,500 photos that offer a glimpse of life in Marrakech a century ago. Admire stirring portraits of locals, village scenes and images of the Berber tribes of the Atlas Mountains that will give you a better understanding of Marrakech's history and culture.

Finish your educational and exciting 4-hour walking tour of Marrakech back in Djemaa El-Fna, where your guide can give you directions back to your hotel or you can continue exploring the mesmerizing medina on your own.
