Marrakech City Tour (Half Day)

Private Tour

Summary

A fully-inclusive private guided tour of Marrakech.

Activity code: RAKCT1

Duration: Half Day

With the touch of a journey back in time and quite the best introduction to this garden city, your tour will begin with a visit to the dramatic Almohad Koutoubia Minaret and the lavishly decorated Saadien Tombs - some dating from the middle 1550s. Next is the 14th century Ben Youssef Medersa - one of the most beautiful buildings in Marrakech and then through the labyrinth of narrow alleyways making up the renowned cool, colourful and aromatic Souks of Marrakech - the Dyers' Souk being the last to be visited. The fully guided tour will finish in the Djemaa el Fna Square ('The Assembly of the Dead'), where until the 19th century the rulers of the city would traditionally display the severed heads of criminals.

In this magical place you will see stalls of goods, from fruit to alarm clocks; snake charmers and water sellers; fortune tellers and public scribes; tumblers and nakkachat - women with syringes full of henna - soothsayers and gnaoua musicians. The perfect start to any stay in Marrakech for, without a doubt, you'll be back in the souks for more, but it's best not to get lost on your first adventure.

This excursion is available as part of any tailor made holiday with Rediscover the World.
