Marrakech City Tour
Situated at the foot of the Atlas Mountains with its red walls and a beautiful palm grove, Marrakesh is a magical and supernatural place.
Discover more of this mystical city by taking our half or full-day tour of its monuments, buildings and, of course, the world renowned Jemaa el Fna.
Pay a visit the Saadian tombs which date back to the 16th century and the Koutoubia Minaret. When the present mosque and its iconic Moorish minaret were finished in the 12th century, 100 booksellers were clustered around its base - hence the name Koutoubia, meaning 'booksellers'.
Escape the hustle and bustle of the city with a visit to the sub-tropical Jardins Majorelle, designed by Jacques Majorelle, a French painter. This lush oasis of majestic palm trees, cooling water features, impressive cacti and cascading bougainvillea is owned by the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint-Laurent Foundation. The small museum housed within the gardens displays Berber and Tuareg jewellery and textiles, carpets, cobalt blue pottery and wedding curtains. There is also a display of Majorelle’s work.
The Jemaa el Fna is a large square in the old quarter of Marrakech. During the day it is predominantly occupied by snake charmers, fruit stalls, water sellers in colourful costumes and youths with chained Barbary apes, but as dusk falls these make way for story-tellers, drummers, food stalls and Chleuh (dancing boys). Worthy of its UNESCO status this is a place not to be missed when you visit Marrakech.
