Full description
Depart Casablanca following pick-up at 07:00 and relax on the 3-hour drive to Marrakech. Upon arrival, meet your local guide for a 3.5-hour walking tour around the medina. See the stalls of the old fortified city before going to the Palais de Bahia to discover its fantastic courtyards and mosaic walls built for Bou Ahmed.

Stroll through the Jewish Quarter ("mellah), where you'll notice the difference in the architecture of the district. Discover the hidden Saadian tombs, built during the reign of Sultan Ahmad al-Mansur in 1557. Admire the Arab-Andalusian architecture of the Islamic college of Ben Youssef Madrasa, and go into some of the stores of the souk to purchase spices and Morocco's famous argan oil. 

Arrive at the Koutoubia Mosque, completed under the reign of the Almohad Caliph Yaqub al-Mansur (1184–1199), before experiencing the electric atmosphere of Jemaa el-Fnaa, the busiest square and market place in Africa.

Stop for a tasty lunch in a restaurant with a terrace overlooking Jemaa el-Fnaa square. Next, meet your chauffeur for the drive to Majorelle Garden, bought and restored by the French designer, Yves Saint Laurent. Benefit from about 1.5 hours of free time to explore the quiet oasis and villa that contains the Berber Museum.

Great entertaining tour of the breathtaking city of Marrakech

With the consistently personable guide Mr. Azzedin we enjoyed a great tour of Marrakesh. The driver was very attentive during the 3.5 hour drive and we were able to enjoy the landscape. As the first stop in the city, we visited the highlight Jardin Majorelle with exhibitions Yves Saint Laurent. Then it went towards the center to the Coutoubia Mosque and the Bahija Palace. From there to the Jewish quarter and through the Kasbah. In a herb shop we enjoyed a great insight into German (!) With many details and were ultimately at the juggler square and in the souks. Highly recommended tour !!!
