Discover historic sites, architecture, and a vibrant old city on a full-day tour of Marrakech that takes in the city’s highlights, with breakfast, lunch, and round-trip hotel transfer included. Exploring the maze-like medina alongside a local guide means you can walk through back alleys and markets with confidence, from the Marrakech leather auction and Bahia Palace to the snake charmers of Jemaa el-Fnaa. This small-group tour is limited to 15 participants for a personalized experience.
Begin with morning pickup at your hotel in Marrakech, then start the day like a local with a Moroccan-style breakfast. Your first sightseeing destination is the Koutoubia Mosque, the largest mosque in Marrakech, whose distinctive square tower dominates a sprawling plaza in the heart of the old city.
Continue on foot through winding alleyways to a series of traditional bakeries, old lodging houses, and wooden fountains, then visit the Ben Youssef Madrasa, one of the largest theological colleges in North Africa, filled with exquisite Moorish architecture and artwork.
Go deeper into the medina with your guide to see a neighborhood filled with craftsmen and workshops, from leather to tin, copper, and handicrafts. Take a tour of the opulent Bahia Palace, whose gardens and rich rooms recall Morocco’s golden age, then make a final stop at Jemaa el-Fnaa, a vibrant market and gathering place. You’ll see storytellers, musicians, snake charmers, and dancing monkeys, and learn a bit about local life and culture in the Imperial City. This day tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
