Marrakech Guided Tours

per person

Marrakech is the most popular city to visit in the world according to the latest polls. It is easy to see why when you realise just how much is in this ancient mystical and vibrant medina. Its history stretches back a thousand years and you can still see original parts of the first buildings. Marrakesh is divided into the old medina and the new city of Gueliz with many other suburbs. The main focus is the UNESCO heritage site of Djemaa el Fna, the huge square that is the thriving, thronging hub of the old medina. Once a trading centre for caravans bringing goods from the Sahara, a hive of storytelling , visual arts and artisans, it is now a colourful centre for many activities and a huge street food market. At night it is alive with music, enticing aromas, great food, Gnawa musicians, snake charmers and many other attractions.

This place has a strange draw, a magnetism that keeps pulling you back to visit.

From this central point there are many small alleyways and streets that make up the old medina. It is in this labyrinth that you can discover the historical monuments and palaces, the museums and mosques. To the north are the Souks and Ben Youssef Mosque, the Quoba, Marrakech Museum and the oldest parts of the medina. To the south, the Saadian tombs, Bahia and Badi Palaces, the Tiskiwin Saharan Museum, Dar Si Said Museum and the Mellah. There are of course many other places to visit.

Marrakech has many beautiful green spaces and some notable gardens. The Majorelle Gardens, with its distinctive blue building is a delightful escape from the crazy souks. It represents the 5 continents in its clever design and has an interesting history linked to the fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.

The most visual landmark in the city is the Koutoubia Mosque, standing at a magnificent height of seventy metres, with four different faces; it is visible for many miles in all directions. It was originally built by the Almohads and is the oldest and most complete of three similar minarets of the same era. The others are in Rabat and in Seville, Spain.

Morocco is a hive of artisan activity and Marrakech has its share of incredible craftsmanship. Narrow streets with tiny workshops are the daily life for many skilled artisans bent over their toil producing exquisite work for sale the world over. There is no such thing as Made in China here; everything is crafted from locally sourced raw materials, from recycled finds and foraged sustainables. The sheer volume and variety of products is astounding, and if you can´t find what you are looking for, someone will make it to order.

Morocco : Long-standing traditions blend seamlessly with modernity

Morocco is undoubtedly been able to preserve its traditions and make its cultural heritage prosper through generations, using them as levers for development. In Marrakech, the Medina and its magnetic souks shower you with its traditionnal side, while Guéliz and Hivernage offer the most modern facilities and infrastructure. Far from being antagonistic, the combination of modernity and tradition embodies the true strength of Morocco. Leaving the old medina where the history of Marrakech takes hold of all the architectural details, you’ll discover modern districts. Grand boulevards, European-style buildings in ochre color charm its visitors. In a notable contrast with the old medina, the districts of Gueliz and the Hivernage give the city another level of fascination : a more modern, lively and revolutionary aspect. Gueliz, which is the beating heart of the city, is the business district. As you walk along its boulevards, you will find a Western-style setting: the headquarters of banks and companies.

Ecological tourism in Morocco

Nowadays, many tourists tick-off "Eco-Friendly" stays harking back for nature, relaxation, mediation and a total break with the routine. Looking for inner peace and zen moment goes hand-in-hand with nature preservation, for nature being the source of our hapiness. We are always looking for inner peace and this cannot be achieved without the preservation of nature: nature that does us good and protects us! Morocco, in this same context, also seeks to avoid the shortcomings of modernity, particularly in environmental matters, by promoting responsible tourism that impacts the land and the local populations.   SOURCE: VISIT MOROCCO
