Morocco Walking Tour
What to say about Morocco? The very name conjures up images of blue doors and adobe buildings, smoke curling from hookah pipes, and bustling Marrakech markets overflowing with colourful spices. Morocco is one of the most interesting countries in Africa, and its diversity is stunning. Between the high mountains, deserts, beautiful coastline, and busy cities, you’ll find the experience of a lifetime.
Getting adjusted to life in Morocco can definitely be intimidating at times. After all, you’re stepping into a brand new culture, and things are done differently here. A Morocco walking tour with a friendly and experienced guide is just the answer, and fortunately for you, we have a whole slew of them. Perhaps you’ll start out in Marrakech, the capital city, where souks and friendly folks will dazzle you endlessly. Your guide will take you to bab-Agnow, the prettiest gate in Marrakech, built in the 12th century. You can walk to the elaborate and ornate Saadian tombs, the final resting place for Saadian Sultan Ahmed al-Mansour ed-Dahbi, complete with imported Italian marble and decorative plasterwork. Moving onwards to the Jewish Quarter, Mellah, visit the stores and markets featuring local goods and spices of all kinds. Swing by the most visited monument in the city, the Bahia – a gorgeous palace dating back to the 19th century with some incredible Moorish architecture.
Getting out of the city, move onwards to Tangier, a gritty but welcoming city teeming with life. At Malabata Cape, you’ll see a gorgeous view of the city as well as the divide between Europe and Africa. Explore Tangier’s boulevards, as well as its luxurious villas and palaces, and then swing by Spartel Cape, considered to be the most northwest point of Africa. From here you can see the Caves of Hercules, as well as the Kasbah (the Old Fortification dating from the 15th century). Other highlights include the Mendoubia gardens, Saint-Andrews Church, the Berber market, and the fruits and vegetables market.Read More ...
