We will spend one day exploring the highlights of Marrakech! Led by a local guide, you will be introduced to the rich heritage of the city as you visit the important heritage site you just can’t afford to miss while traveling in Morocco!
Starting in Casablanca, we will make the 2.5 – 3 hour journey to Marrakech. Once we arrive in “The Red City,” we will begin the guided history tour. The first site your local, expert guide will bring you to is the Menara Gardens, built during the 12 century. Unwind as you take a leisurely stroll through the natural beauty in a peaceful atmosphere. We will stop at the pavilion overlooking the pool, constructed in the 19th century. While at the pavilion, take in the beautiful view of the gardens and Atlas Mountains in the distance.
Our next site of interest, the Koutoubia Mosque, is located at the gates of the Atlas Mountains. Originally constructed in the 12th century, it is known for its minaret. This mosque, with its beautiful Moroccan architecture, influenced many other structures which were constructed at a later date, all throughout the country.
After lunch at a local restaurant, we will dive into the Marrakech medina. There, we will visit the colourful souks and visit the square Dkemaa El Fna. Observe the enchanting snake charmers and acrobats. Don’t forget to visit a fortune teller! Before departing Marrakech for Casablanca, we will enjoy mint tea from a rooftop while overlooking the square.
We look forward to guiding you!
