Meet a driver at your Casablanca hotel for 9am departure, then board a private vehicle for the 152-mile (244-km.) trip to Marrakech.
Upon arrival in the city, which is one of Morocco’s four Imperial Cities, make the first stop of the day at the 19th-century Bahia Palace. Once the home of a Grand Vizier to the Sultan, this is the perfect place to get a glimpse of historic life among Morocco’s elite, from the apartments of the Sultan’s beloved concubine to the tiled walls and cedar ceilings of the Council Chamber.
From there, continue to Jemaa el-Fnaa, a bustling market square that’s listed by UNESCO as part of the Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Browse stalls overflowing with handicrafts, sample local food hot from charcoal grills, and soak up the colorful atmosphere on the open-air plaza.
Following your time at Jemaa el-Fnaa, make a final stop at the Saadian Tombs, a 16th-century royal landmark that was lost to the world until 1917. Tour the marble-lined mausoleums that were the resting place for members of the Saadi Dynasty, with elegant architecture and decorations in cedar and stucco.
This 10-hour tour concludes with return transfer to Casablanca, and 7pm drop-off at your hotel.
