Full description
Start your private adventure in the Mellah, Marrakech's old Jewish quarter. You'll learn about its historical significance and interact with the local sellers as you navigate the spice souk. Soon you'll reach Jemaa el-Fnaa square, the heart of Marrakech. Wander around the stalls, snake charmers, musicians and other artists.

Next, visit a local cooperative for women with disabilities where you'll find fabulous hand-stitched clothes made from natural fabrics. Follow your private guide through the winding alleys, admiring places often missed by travelers. After you see the many artisans at work, you'll experience Morocco's warm hospitality and share a fresh cup of tea and a "msemmen" (local pancake) with your guide.

Venture deeper into the souks to see even more skilled artisans, including tile and slipper makers, or simply to admire more remarkable carpets, hand-painted ceramics and shelves of brilliantly colored products before finishing your tour back at Jemaa el-Fnaa. Pick up recommendations from your host before setting off on your own back into the hustle and bustle of Marrakech.
