Full description
Enjoy a comprehensive sightseeing tour of Marrakech, exploring the medieval streets, souks and medina of Morocco’s “Red City” through its palaces and monuments.

Following a pick-up from your hotel or riad, explore one of Morocco’s oldest imperial cities at sites such as the Koutoubia, one of the largest and most beautiful mosques of the western Muslim world. Marvel at its 221-foot minaret and masterful architecture that evokes the Giralda of Seville.

Continues to a peaceful enclosure in the Kasbah to see the Saadian Tombs, dating back to the 16th century of Sultan Ahmad al-Mansu. Admire the colorful tiles, Arabic script, and intricate carvings, hidden to the world after they were sealed up until 1917.

Next, spend an hour at the 19th-century Bahia Palace, built in 7 years by 1,000 craftsmen from Fez. Intended to be the greatest example of Moroccan and Islamic architecture in the world, a haphazard arrangement of secret apartments open onto inner courtyards, set in the center of a 2-acre garden. 
Then go to Jemaa El-Fnaa, Marrakech's main square and the market place. Through the medina, there are different souks to explore. From the silk-spinners and the spice sellers to carpets to crystals. Each little street has its own identity and its own unique selling point.

Enjoyable trip - good guide with good English and knowledgeable. supposedly a 3 hr tour, the guide was not clock watching and it was a good 3.5 hrs - not including travelling time from the hotel. (Our pick up was not standard but included in the price). one thing that one ought to know, the souks in Marrakech are huge - so that means a good bit of walking.

Terrific

Ahmed is hands down the best tour guide. He was full of knowledge and very generous. Recommended where to shop in the market, get a massage and even walked us back to our Riad. An absolute pleasure! Our tour of the Baia Palace was especially fascinating as random people kept asking to join us... he was that good! The tour overall was honestly one of the best experiences I’ve had.

Nice tour

The driver was really on time and picked us up from the hotel. We went to all the spots that was mentioned. Too bad we couldn't visit inside the Koutoubia (you have to be Muslim and only during prayer). Our guide was really nice and relaxed. Later on we went to a pharmacy, but just know that the prices are really high. I didn't expect that in the old Medina.
