Marrakech guided tour Itinerary:
after a pick up from your hotel or riad, you will join your driver and guide on a quick trip through the streets of Marrakech to the 12th century Koutoubia mosque. Its height (70m tall) makes of the Mosque’ minaret a landmark for navigating the city. The mosque’s interior is not open to non-Muslims, but you can still take a walk in its garden. As we walk around it, you will learn from your guide much about its history and the 5 pillars of Islam, along with other religious matters. From here, we head to see the Saadian Tombs. Sultan Ahmed El-Mansour of the Saadian dynasty which ruled Morocco from 1554 to 1659, requested the chamber of his tomb be made of Italian Carrara marble and pure gold.
We will then take a short walk in the Mellah, a historical Jewish quarter before we reach the Bahia Palace. The gorgeous palace will take you back to the 19th as it exhibits the Moroccan and Islamic art.
We carry out with our historical journey through the labyrinthine Medina streets, until we reach the 14th-century theological college of Ben Youssef Madrasa, which once hosted 130 students. The students’ dorms are neatly scattered around an old courtyard, carved in cedar wood, marble, and stucco.
After a short distance, we reach Jamaa Elfna Square, the World Heritage site for culture as Unesco Named it. The lopsided square is the main stage for Moroccan Halqa (the art of storytelling), jugglers, snake charmers, pop musicians and tens of chefs stir vats of steaming snails!
Your Guided tour Marrakech will come to an end with a drop off at your hotel, riad or a location of your choice.
