Overview

Your senses will be buzzing with the Red City’s intoxicating spicy aromas, music that will sway you with its rhythm, and your eyes will catch not only the intense colours of the souks, but the minute intricate architectural detailing in the most unassuming hidden places. Our one day tour of Marrakesh is structured to ensure you view the most popular attractions, as well as taking you off the tourist path to places that are quieter and concealed. You will be amazed by the amount of date palms in La Palmeraie and there is the opportunity for you to gain insights from locals over a glass of traditional mint tea after a camel ride. The tour is easily customised to suit your particular desires. Some highlights include the famous square called Djemma el Fnaa, which is known for its snake charmers, performers and snack stalls. At the Saadian Tombs you will view opulent marble amongst the tombs of 60 members of this dynasty that ruled in the 16th and 17th centuries. You will also visit Bahia Palace, which was built in the 19th century, and view wooden ceilings that are painted with colourful floral patterns, zellij mosaic tiles and stained glass windows.
