This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Koutoubia Mosque, Rue el Ksour, Derb Sabai, 13, Marrakesh Marrakech 40000، Marrakech 40000, Morocco

The largest mosque in Marrakesh, Koutoubia Mosque is also known by several other names, such as Jami' al-Kutubiyah, Kutubiya Mosque, Kutubiyyin Mosque, and Mosque of the Booksellers.

Found in the southwest medina quarter of Marrakesh, the mosque is ornamented with curved windows, a band of ceramic inlay, pointed merlons, and decorative arches; it has a large plaza with gardens and is floodlit at night, casting a dramatic light over the mosque.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Menara Gardens and Pavilion, Avenue de la Menara, Marrakech 40000 Morocco

Looking out onto peaceful waters, with the dramatic backdrop of the Atlas Mountains, the Menara Gardens are surrounded by orchards and groves. The centre of the gardens is marked by a pavilion to which lends its name, Menara, translating to 'lighthouse', suggesting the lookout point from which it creates.

The gardens were created during the 12th-century Berber movement, however, the pavilion was not created until the 16th century, when it was built to be used as a summer residence for the Sultan of the Saadi dynasty.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Palacio da Bahia, 5 Rue Riad Zitoun el Jdid, Marrakech 40000 Morocco

Surrounded by gardens, the Bahia Palace was built in the late 19th century. Intended to be the greatest palace of its time, its name translates to 'brillance palace' in English.

As with other buildings of the period in Morocco, it was intended to capture the essence of the Islamic and Moroccan style. Today, it stands as one of the most beautiful and extensive structures in Morocco.

The palace expands over eight hectares of land and is one of the largest and most luxurious palaces of its time. Standing as a fine example of Morrocan architecture, it is one of the major monuments of the Morroco's cultural heritage and top tourist spot.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Saadian Tombs, Rue de la Kasbah, Marrakech 40000 Morocco

Located next to the mosque of the Kasbah, the Saadian tombs are one of the only remains of the Saadian dynasty that reigned over the Golden Age of Marrakesh between 1524 to 1659.

In the early 18th century, Sultan Moulay Ismail decided to remove all traces of the magnificence of this dynasty by demanding the destruction of all remaining vestiges. He dared not, however, commit the sacrilege of destroying their burials and ordered that the entrance to the necropolis be completed.

The Royal necropolis was used from the beginning of the 14th century, however its splendour came at a later date. In 1557, the burial of Prince Mohamed Sheikh took place. His son Ahmed El Mansour, also known as Ahmed “the Walleye”, had the mausoleum enlarged and embellished the site with the koubba “Lalla Mesouada” from his mother’s name. Lalla Messaouda was buried there in 1591 as well as the 3 successors of the sultan.

Duration: 35 minutes

Stop At: Jemaa el-Fnaa, Marrakech Morocco

There is nowhere in Morocco like the Jemaa el Fna Square – a surprise on every corner, you'll want to keep coming back for more.

By day, most of the souk is a large open space, where a handful of snake charmers bewitched their cobras with flutes, traditional pharmacists in the north-east of the square display cures and elixirs, and dentists, with fearsome claws, release the pain from sufferers. Not a pleasant sight, but a spectacle, nonetheless!

As dusk approaches the scene begins to change, people come out for a walk and the place fills up little-by-little - it becomes a carnival all of the storytellers, acrobats, musicians and artists.

Wandering down row-upon-row of performers and you will soon be immersed in the ritual: crouching in the midst of spectator circles, giving a dirham or two as thanks for their performance, you'll find hours pass by so quickly.

If you want a break, you can walk to the rooftop terraces, such as the Grand Balcon Café, for a view of the square and a birdseye view of the action.

Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

Stop At: Jardin Majorelle, Rue Yves Saint Laurent, Marrakech 40000 Morocco

The Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech is one of the most visited sites in Morocco. It took French painter Jacques Majorelle (1886-1962) forty years of passion and dedication to create this enchanting garden in the heart of the “Ochre City”.

We amble along shady lanes, in the midst of trees and exotic plants of dreamy origin; we walk past refreshing, burbling streams and pools filled with water lilies and lotus flowers; we hear wafting through the air, laden with sugared fragrance, the rustling of leaves and the chirping of numerous birds who come here to take refuge; we stop, and the path turns unexpectedly, revealing a building with Moorish charm, with a hint of Art Deco, painted in astonishingly vibrant primary colours, glowing with an intense blue the artist perceived in the Atlas Mountains. We are soothed and enchanted by the harmony of this luxuriant and vivid imagery, which issues a delicate summons to the senses, offering us a calming retreat near, and yet so far from the bustling city, sheltered from time by high earthen walls.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: La Palmeraie, Marrakech Morocco

Marrakech’s palmeraie has over 100,000 palm trees. These were planted during the Almoravid dynasty (eleventh and twelfth centuries) in 13,000 hectares.

The Palm Grove of the city is still a source of wealth for Marrakech. The palm trees are highly productive and are used for wood and dates. Moreover, these trees create a good ecosystem for the fruit trees and the plantations in the area.
