30 Minutes Before Event Time
This tour involves an extensive amount of walking for approximately three hours over uneven surfaces, and a three-hour drive with a comfort stop in each direction between the pier and Marrakesh. Expect crowded conditions during your visit. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilize a wheelchair. The tour sequence may vary.
Depart the pier in Casablanca for the approximately three-hour drive southeast to Marrakesh. Upon arrival, a stop is made at the tranquil Majorelle Gardens. Situated in the foreground of the High Atlas Mountains, the Majorelle Gardens feature lovely blue pavilions, along with lush greenery, palm trees, cacti, still pools, and shady nooks.
A visit is then made to the 19th–century Dar el Bahia Palace, which is highlighted by beautifully-decorated rooms with mosaics and ceiling decorations, small gardens, fountains and courtyards. Next, a photo stop is made at the Koutoubia Mosque. The tallest mosque in the city, Koutoubia was built in the late-12th century and features a famous, approximately 252-foot-high (about 77-metre-high) minaret.
After lunch at a Moroccan restaurant, take a guided stroll through the colorful and varied souqs of the 12th-century medina before proceeding to the famous Djmâa el Fna Square, home to musicians, acrobats, snake-charmers, food stalls, and storytellers. Some free time is made available here to browse the covered souqs for handicrafts, beautiful carpets, polished wood art, perfumes, and spices.
Following your visit, re-board the vehicle for the approximately three-hour return drive to the pier.
We had a very nice day in Marrakech with a very good Guide
It was really informative and it’s quiet helpful if someone knows the way through the maze of the souks in the medina.
Our guide was on time and everything went as it was planned.
Thank you for the great day
Wow! What an amazing all round experience from start to finish. I didn’t want it to end. Our guide, Hassam was so lovely and knowledgeable about the Sahara and Morocco in general, which made the trip all the more interesting. A real nomad from the Sahara, having been born under an Acacia tree, Hassan knows the Sahara like the back of his hand and took us to visit some local nomad Berber tribes in their tents in the middle of the desert, whom welcomed us like we were all part of the family. We rode camels in a traditional caravan style across the top of giant red sand dunes at sunset and sunrise, which was one of the most magical experiences of my life to date. I highly recommend Explore Morocco Travel to anyone coming to Morocco who wants to have a truly authentic experience guided by a local.
