What You Can Expect

Marrakech Palaces and Monuments Tour

Marrakech Palaces and Monuments Tour

See the famous Koutoubia Tower, the largest mosque in Marrakech with a 70 meter high minaret. The tower is a great example of Hispano-Moorish art. Continue to Bahia Palace which is surrounded by beautiful gardens filled with fruit trees and sweet smelling flowers. Built in the 19th century, the palace was intended to be the greatest Palace of its time.

Leaving Bahia Palace you will continue to the cedar wood domes and marble columns of the Saadian Tombs. Dating back to the time of Sultan Ahmad al-Mansur (1578-1603), the tombs were only discovered in 1917 and their subsequent restoration have made them one of the most popular attractions for visitors to Marrakech.

Your last stop will be the Tiskiwin Museum, a beautiful double riad containing the private collection of folk arts belonging to Dutch collector Bert Flint. You will also see examples of Moroccan handicrafts at Dar Nejjarine before returning to your Marrakech hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

Highly recommend taking this tour if you're in Marrakech! Amazing guides, happy to help and no opportunistic selling :)

We paid £11 each for this trip to Viator who squeezed us onto a coach full of Thomson clients most of whom will have paid £16 each. Thomson customers checkout Viator at home before booking with your holiday company in location. The walking tour of palaces and monuments was excellent value partly because our £11 included transport to and from the medina, entrance fees into the Saadian Tombs, Bahia Palace and a Museum but moreover for the outstanding guide. This ageing rockstar or self confessed last hippie in Marrakech was very informative and highly entertaining

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

Well worth doing, the 2 guides were friendly and informative. Quite a bit of walking involved but you get to sample a lot of different parts of Marrakech, places you wouldn't normally walk down yourself.

Our guide was excellent. He took our group of four married couples to areas of the Souk which we would not have normally had the confidence to visit on our own at night. Every aspect of the local diet was thoroughly explained - herbs, spices, vegetables, fruits, nuts, couscous, bread, tea and meat - the lot. The walk through the Souks at night was unforgettable; we felt safe at all times and was the best introduction to Marrakech we could have hoped for. Thoroughly recommended. Five star

It was an excellent tour and good value for money. We had 2 guides with us on the tour who took turns to explain the history of the monuments. The palace was amazing with the lovely ceiling and tiled floors. Covered a lot of monuments and they even dropped us back at the square when we requested instead of our hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2013

This is a great value tour. The sites visited do get busy with lots of tourists so it really helps having a tour guide. Our guide was interesting and informative and we covered a lot of sites during the morning. As I was staying in the medina I was picked up from a central location very near Djemaa El Fna which worked out very well. I would recommend this tour for first time visitors to Marrakech.
