What You Can Expect

Marrakech Medina Walking Tour Including Maison Tiskiwin, Bahia Palace and the Photography Museum

Experience Marrakech

Begin your small-group walking tour of Marrakech at 9am 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 orange juice 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 Maison Tiskiwin, a museum of treasures from across Morocco and the Sahara collected by a Dutch anthropologist. Learn the stories behind the pottery, sculptures, carpets and musical instruments in this fascinating museum from your guide.

Next, you'll visit Bahia Palace. 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.

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.

Mustafa was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. Took us to a spice trader in the souk on request and we got some excellent saffron and spices. One of the highlights of our stay in morocco!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

The walking tour was well worth the money. Our guide is a Marrakech native and very informed on the culture and history. Must be in good shape to walk for three hours. Was able to see all of the historical aspects of the city. Would highly recommend this tour.
