Full description
Discover the enchanting and spectacular treasures of this medieval desert enclave on a guided walking tour. Stroll through the old Marrakech medina with an expert local guide as you discover an array of hidden gems along the way. Benefit from skip-the-line access to both the Bahia & Badii Palaces, then pay an optional visit to the Saadian Tombs. Begin your walking tour by passing the ruins of Sultan Ahmed El Mansour's 16th-century Grand Badi Palace. Catch a glimpse of the former affluence of this majestic city. Learn about how, at the height of its glory, the palace was considered the 8th wonder of the world. Then, continue your tour to the Bahia Palace - the jewel in the crown of Marrakech and a monument of breathtaking magnificence. Enter the monument with skip-the-line admission. As you explore inside, find out how it was constructed in the latter part of the 19th century and took the most skilled workers and artisans 6 years to complete. Finally, pay an optional visit to the Saadian Tombs which were sealed up for centuries until they were rediscovered in 1917. Hear about how the tombs date back to the time of the sultan Ahmad al-Mansur. See the 2 main mausoleums within the enclosure, consisting of 66 tombs with 100 more which lie outside in the gardens.

We spent three hours with our guide Mohamed who was absolutely brilliant! A guide who took us around Marrakech to discover several districts, the Bahia palace and the mosque, who was able to enrich us with his historical and cultural knowledge, dozens of anecdotes and details, all with simplicity, professionalism and humor. In short, we couldn't have dreamed of a better day for our first day in this city. To recommend, thank you Mohamed !!!

We had a great day with our guide Abderrazak. He took the time (more than 3h40 of visit) to give us all the explanations on the Bahia Palace and the Saadian tombs as well as on other parts of the city. We appreciated his professionalism and his humor, we were able to visit Marrakech while learning a lot about the inhabitants and their city. I recommend this tour.
