Overview

Experience one of Morocco’s most enchanting cities on a full-day private trip to Marrakech from Casablanca, and spend the day discovering a historic palace, the vibrant Jemaa el-Fnaa square, and long-lost royal tombs. Enjoy the flexibility and personal service of a private guide throughout the day in the Imperial City of Marrakech, with round-trip Casablanca hotel transfers included.
  • Visit Marrakech on a full-day trip from Casablanca
  • Travel with a private driver and guide
  • Includes three top sites in Marrakech
  • Discover royal architecture in an Imperial City
  • Explore the UNESCO-listed Marrakech square
  • Pickup and drop-off at Casablanca hotels
Meet a driver at your Casablanca hotel for morning 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 tour concludes with return transfer to Casablanca, and evening drop-off at your hotel.

The trip involved two 4 hour stretches of road travel. The driver did a very good job and was concerned with our comfort during the long tour. The guide was well versed with the city. One down side was an experience with a very aggressive rug salesperson. The market area was interesting, but was simply a larger version of the markets in other cities in Morocco.

We were picked up by an exceedingly nice driver promptly at / before 7:30 a.m. at our hotel. He spoke plenty of English, but was more comfortable in French. He provided us with bottled water and offered to accommodate anything we needed. Comfortable car. We stopped at a rest stop with a small restaurant / convenience store about halfway to Marrakech. There we (including our driver whom we treated) each got a pastry and coffee / tea. Nice restrooms (no tip expected). On arrival in Marrakech we met up with a wonderful tour guide who was quite knowledgeable of the history of each location. The website warned we would have to pay for admission to a couple sites and we paid 70 dirham each (about $7 - 8 USD at the exchange rate of the time) to enter a Mausoleum grounds and later a palace of sorts. At the entrance to one location, a man dressed in traditional water-seller (?) attire invited us to take his photo. We did so and our guide helped us give him a 10 dirham tip for that service. Next we went to lunch at a superb restaurant that provided a delicious multi-course meal while live music quietly played in the background. (Vegetarian option available.) That costs us maybe $70 USD for the two of us plus the meal of our tour guide. After lunch we walked through the old city past numerous stalls selling items. We were escorted into a large carpet showroom where a very nice salesman had his staff show us many many locally made carpets. They were gorgeous, although it was a tad uncomfortable how desperate the salesman was for us to buy one. Hundreds of dollars was not in our budget and we really disappointed him. The sweet mint tea was yummy there. Next we were taken to a shop selling various herbs , spices and argon oil products. We had a demonstration of their items and then were invited to make purchases, which we did. At the end of this great tour, as we'd previously arranged, we were dropped off at our Marrakech hotel instead of returning to Casablanca. This worked out nicely as our transportation between the two cities.

This was a wonderful guided day tour of Marrakech for our family of 4. As advertised, we were picked up at our hotel in Casablanca and driven to Marrakech and returned to the hotel. Although the driver did not speak English (only French and Arabic), he was courteous and helpful. Our guide in Marrakech, Mr. Salah O., was fluent in English, personable, and delivered an informative guided tour of the sites on our tour's itinerary Well worth it!
