What You Can Expect

Casablanca Shore Excursion: Private Marrakech Tour

Visit the 19th century Bahia Palace in Marrakech

When your cruise ship docks in Casablanca, hop aboard a climate-controlled vehicle and set off to begin your private, full-day shore excursion.

On arrival in Marrakech, after roughly three hours on the road, you’ll meet your guide and begin your walking tour. The rose-tinted city of Marrakech is a heady mixture of cultural influences — Arabic, European and African — and has been Morocco’s epicentre of trade and culture for centuries.

Wander along enchanting alleyways sheathed by towering pink walls and inviting palaces. Then make your first stop at the 12th-century Koutoubia Mosque, where you’ll gain insight into Islam and learn about the mosque’s role in past and present society.

Continue to a centuries-old fortress, Bahia Palace, which is considered one of the finest examples of Moroccan architecture in the city. Head inside with your guide to explore its lavish suites and intricately decorated hallways. After, head to Saadian Tombs, where Saadian Sultan Ahmed al-Mansour ed-Dahbi and his family are buried.

Break for lunch (own expense) roughly halfway through the tour at a local restaurant of your choice. Then, enjoy an independent visit to Djemaa el Fna square, where acrobats, musicians, fire-eaters and snake charmers have practiced their trades for centuries.

Your tour then concludes with a drop-off back at the cruise port in Casablanca.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2016

Highly recommended. The driver was waiting at the pier hen we got off the ship. He drove us from Casablanca to Marrakech where we met our local guide. The guide spoke good English and was helpful in making purchases. We told him we wanted to see the snake charmers and we did. We knew people on the ship tour who did not see the snake charmers. The main reason for going to Marrakech was the big open market. If you were by yourself you could get lost in the maze of the open market. The guide asked us what time we wanted to leave to make sure we got back to the ship on time and the driver was waiting at that time. We got back to the ship with 45 minutes to spare. The bonus is that we paid less than 1/2 of what the ship charged and we got a personal tour with just 4 of us instead of 40 people on a bus.
