Description

Don't get lost in the labyrinth streets of the Medina and make your first visit with an experienced local guide and discover life as it has existed for hundreds of years. Visit historic sites, see colorful souks, be enchanted by snake dances and story tellers, and feel the life of the Old Town on this guided walking tour.

During the walk, see the dramatic Almohad Koutoubia Minaret, a masterpiece of Hispano-Moresque art & Marrakech's landmark.

Meander through the alleyways of the Medina that make up the aromatic souks of Marrakech. Discover which authentic goods the locals have to offer, from authentic handicrafts, Berber carpets, and leather goods to babouches (slippers), delicate jewelry, and exotic spices.

See the copper and bronze artists at work, visit the forged hardware, marquetry, and pottery souks. Then head to the Berber apothecary for a display of magic potions and a refreshing mint tea.

Your tour is complete with a visit to the UNESCO-listed Jemaa el-Fnaa, the traditional meeting place for peasants and merchants from the Sous, High Atlas, and southern regions—making it the heart of Marrakech.

By morning the square is crowded with fruit and spice sellers and guerrabs (water sellers) with their leather water bottles. By afternoon, see Gnawa dancers, snake charmers, and performing monkeys, and hear the sounds of musicians and story tellers.

I was included in the half day city tour when all I really wanted and booked for was the “Mystical Marrakech Medina and Souks on Foot”. We ended up at the Medina at the end of the tour. but only for an hour at 12 noon. Disappointing experience.

Very informative. Felt that we were directed to areas that he knew regarding buying gifts, not really had a choice to go into souks of our choice.

The tour was very good taking in all the soukas and ping in areas where I would probably not venture on my own - the history of Marrakesh and it’s people is fascinating- I haven’t gone into detail of your as don’t want to spoil it for other travellers x
