Best Morocco Tours from Marrakech
Morocco Sahara desert Tours from Marrakech

Marrakech is a city in southern Morocco, and it was its capital during the Almoravid, Almohad and Alawite dynasties, until the arrival of the French colonizers. The country was called the Kingdom of Marrakech, from which the name Morocco comes.

It is one of the imperial cities of Morocco, a world famous city, a regional commercial center and a great artisan and religious center. Today it is a cultural city, a source of inspiration for artists, a pioneer, host to major events and, of course, a top tourist destination.

What to see in Marrakech

The city is made up of the medina, the colonial city and the new Hivernage district, which is the most modern in Marrakech. There are many attractions in and around the city.

The Medina:

The medina is a conglomerate of narrow, bustling streets with many souks and squares full of life, craftsmanship and tradition. It is surrounded by 90 kilometers of adobe walls and has 10 gates.

Entering through the Bab Al-Jdid gate, you will come to the Koutoubia Mosque and Jemaa el-Fna Square. The Koutoubia Mosque is one of the most impressive in the world. It was built in the Hispano-Moorish style and its minaret is the symbol of the city. It is reminiscent of the Giralda in Seville and is surrounded by palm trees and crowned with four bronze orbs.

Next to the mosque is the legendary Jemaa el-Fna square, one of the most visited sites in Morocco. It is full of stalls of all kinds, wise men, magicians, snake charmers, contortionists and even people who spontaneously add to the craziness of the place.

To the east of the Medina is the tanners’ quarter, where the best artisans in the country are to be found. There is also the Ben Youssef Mosque and the Madrasa, the largest in the medina, and one of the most beautiful buildings in the city, as well as the Marrakech Museum.
To the south are the 12th century Agdal Gardens, a very peaceful place full of greenery, including huge olive and fig trees.
Entering through the Bab Agnaou gate, you will find the El-Mansour Mosque, nicknamed the “Golden Apple Mosque”.
Through the Bab Aylen or Bab Berrima gates you can access the 16th century El Badi Palace, one of the wonders of the Muslim world, although today it is mostly in ruins. It is worth climbing its walls to enjoy the view of Marrakech.
The famous Mamounia Hotel, one of the most luxurious in the world, is also worth a visit. It is an old palace, where many international personalities have stayed. Its original rooms are decorated with different patterns and some have a view of the Koutoubia Mosque and others of the gardens.

Outside the medina:

Outside the medina is the modern city, built during the French protectorate and made up of wide avenues, with attractions such as Avenue Mohammed V, with its official buildings, banks, hotels, and cafes. The center of the modern part of the city is the large square, which houses the Majorelle Garden, an oasis full of fruit trees and flowers, and the large central market.
There is also the Hivernage, which is the most modern part of Marrakech, with spacious and urbanized streets. This is where the famous Pacha Marrakech club is located.
And on the outskirts of Marrakech, you can visit the Palmeraie, an oasis with almost 150,000 palm trees.

Shopping in Marrakech

Marrakech is one of the commercial and artisan capitals of Morocco, perhaps because of its large tourist influx. Typical products of the city include fabrics such as rugs, leather goods, metal goods and jewelry such as traditional Moroccan lanterns, and silver and copper items. Carved jewelry decorated with gold is also typical.

The most interesting places for shopping are health and beauty stores. There are argan oil products and even unlikely miracle cures.
If you want to shop in the medina, the souks are right in the middle. We recommend the Smarine fabric souk, the Figarine forge souk and the dyers’ souk where wool of all colors is allowed to dry.

What is the difference between small group, private and luxury tours?

We offer a wide selection of Moroccan guided tours that will help you embrace different possibilities, opinions, religions, customs and interests. To satisfy the needs of our clients, we organize three types of Tours; small group tours, private tours and luxury tours. The first has minimal costs and introduces you to other different cultures, how? sharing tours with small groups of travelers from all over the world. In the second, private tour, you travel at your own pace and that when selecting lodges and camps where to stay throughout the tour as in the luxury tour, the only difference is in the quality of the accommodation, the star rating of the hotels. In other words, we offer you in luxury tours a unique selection of charming hotels and luxury camps in Morocco with unique performances.
Depending on your budget and wishes, you can choose any tour you want, so let’s do it together!

When Is the Best Time to Visit Morocco ?

Morocco is a fantastic place to visit at any time of the year! Due to the way the country’s geography is laid out, there is always a place where the climate is mild – in these places, you can go to escape the heat and enjoy the cooler weather and explore a new region.
Fez and Marrakech can be unbearably hot in the summer, so head to the hills! Summer is the best time to hike or explore the Atlas Mountains – here, the high altitude ensures cool fresh air and an occasional snowfall.

You can do this by calling your provider (they will generally unlock your US phone within half an hour of your call).

You can eat or drink at your hotel or at a cafe/restaurant recommended by your guide. Your guide will organize lunches to facilitate your trip during Ramadan. During the month, you will find that tourist sites open at 9 a.m. M. And they close at 3 p.m. M.
