Marrakech is the fourth largest city in the Kingdom of Morocco. It is the capital of the central-southwest region of Marrakech-Safi. It is located west of the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Marrakech is located 580 km (360 miles) southwest of Tangier, 327 km (203 miles) southwest of the Moroccan capital of Rabat, 239 km (149 miles) south of Casablanca, and 246 km (153 miles) ) north-east from Agadir.
The region has been inhabited by Berber farmers since the Neolithic period. The city was founded in 1070 by Emir Abu Bakr bin Omar as the imperial capital of the Almoravid Empire. The city was one of the four imperial cities of Morocco. In the 12th century, the Almoravids built many Koranic schools and mosques in Marrakech with Andalusian influences. The city’s red walls, built by Ali ibn Yusuf in 1122-1123, and the many buildings constructed of red sandstone during this period, gave the city the nickname “Red City” (ocher city). Marrakech grew and quickly established its position as a cultural, religious, and commercial center for the Maghreb and sub-Saharan Africa, and Jamaâ El Fna Square is Africa’s busiest square.

Day trip from Casablanca to Marrakech: Reviews
Full-Day Private Tour to Marrakech from Casablanca
This trip should have been called a shopping trip to Marrakech. The driver was punctual and friendly, but it would have been very nice for him to mention that there was a clean and hot western toilet inside the gas station rather than letting us go to the cold eastern toilet in the open air closest to our rest area. As soon as we arrived in Marrakech, we were entrusted to a local guide. He asked us what we wanted to see and we told him everything. In fact, it was for all the tourist businesses in Medina. They responded to our request to be dropped off at the riad rather than brought back to Casablanca. It was a good way to transport us between the two cities with our luggage but could have been a lot better if the driver had driven to points of interest outside of Medina. There is more to Marrakech than just shopping in the Medina. We would have preferred to see it.

My husband and I took this trip and we can only describe it as amazing. The owner said was quick to respond to our calls and was very helpful and friendly. Asis, the chauffeur, picked us up on time at our hotel and dressed to impress. He was very accommodating and extremely respectful. He could tell that he was very proud of his country and his king. The trip to Marrakech was very pleasant. When we arrived we had a guide who gave us a very complete and interesting tour of the city. Unfortunately, I don’t remember his name, but he was also amazing. He would recommend this tour to anyone. Truly.
My wife and I had a great experience…

This trip has been a great experience. The pickup was done on time in a very nice van with a friendly driver. The guide was very helpful and gave us the option to rent bikes so we could see more of the city. We were able to adapt our experience and spend more time in the markets. Highly recommended.
