What you'll do

Marrakech can be overwhelming and you might get hassled or get lost if you are not with a licensed guide. More stuff than in your attic! Loads of stalls selling and making everything. The souk is a week-long project - trudging up alleyways, dodging donkey-carts, bicycles and scooters. Whatever you need or don't need is here.
Our experience will start with the Bahia palace, The floor-to-ceiling decoration here was begun by Grand Vizier Si Moussa in the 1860s and embellished from 1894 to 1900 by slave-turned-vizier Abu ‘Bou’ Ahmed. In 1908 the palace's beguiling charms attracted warlord Pasha Glaoui, who claimed it as a suitable venue to entertain French guests.
Up next is the Saadian tombs, anyone who says you can’t take it with you hasn’t seen the Saadian Tombs, near the Kasbah Mosque. Saadian Sultan Ahmed Al Mansour Ed Dahbi spared no expense on his tomb, importing Italian Carrara marble and gilding honeycomb muqarnas (decorative plasterwork) with pure gold to make the Chamber of the 12 Pillars a suitably glorious mausoleum.
Finally we will visit one of the best places in Marrakech to get spices, essential oils and other goods, after the latter we will go back to Cafe France

Born and raised in Marrakech, I've been a licensed guide by the ministry of tourism for a while now. I speak fluent English and have led tours from 1-12 people. it's fun for me to bring travelers, backpackers, or whomever is interested to see the hidden gems of my city. If I weren't doing these experiences, I'd be backpacking somewhere my passport allows me to!

This tour was perfect for our first day in Marrakech. We were acquainted with the city and our guide Mo helped us to remember landmarks so we could get around in the future. He made a lot of great recommendations for places to go on our trip. We visited landmarks and were given information about the locations we wouldn’t have known if we had wandered these spots by ourselves. Mo gave us a lot of advice and was great with answering all of our questions, the experience was so worth it.

A very pleasant wander to the Bahia Palace, Saaiden's tombs and the Koutoubia Mosque. Issa was softly spoken and informative, filling in the gaps between the main sites with interesting information about the different parts of the City. With a good guide book and the time we might have done this ourselves but we had neither and it was a pleasure to spend the morning on this walk, keeping one step ahead of the queues. -1 star for the awkward and unnecessary visit to a spice and cosmetic shop.

This was a lovely tour! Our guide was very personable and professional, and catered the tour to our preferences which made everything feel very personalised. We had great conversations, learnt some incredibly interesting things about Marrakech’s history, and overall felt very taken care of amidst the hustle and bustle. Abdellatif - our guide - is fantastically knowledgable and was so helpful in answering all our many questions. He even offered to take pictures for us within the Bahia palace - great touch! So pleased with this tour and would highly recommend it, to first-timers especially, as it is an accommodating and fun way to navigate Marrakech.

Najib was een geweldige gids. Hij had waanzinnig veel kennis op allerlei gebied. Mooie gesprekken, een echte verdieping in het marrokkaanse bestaan. We hebben genoten! Weinig geld voor zoveel diepgang en informatie.
