Description

During this private half-day city tour of Marrakech, your friendly multilingual driver and expert guide (if option selected) will be at your entire service to assist you with competence and discretion. You will be picked up from your hotel in a private brand new air-conditioned minivan and dropped off to visit each monument planned in the discovery of Marrakech.

You will start your door to door tour with a visit of the prestigious Majorelle garden, a calming retreat near, and yet so far from the bustling city, sheltered from time by high earthen walls. You will explore its intriguing history, learn about its French-influenced architecture and connection to the iconic French designer Yves Saint Laurent and the famous painter/botanist Jacques Majorelle, amble along shady lanes, discover exotic plants of dreamy origin, walk past refreshing, burbling streams and pools filled with water lilies and lotus flowers.

After that, you will head to the Royal Kasbah in the southern part of the ancient medina of Marrakech. Built by Sultan Almohad Mansour al-Yacoub, it is the site of "El Mansouria" (the big mosque of the kasbah) and the Saadian Tombs. You will visit the Saadian tombs, discovered and restored recently in 1917. Because of the beauty of their decoration, these tombs are a major attraction for the visitors of Marrakech. It is one of the few remaining vestiges of the Saadian dynasty who reigned over the golden age of Marrakech between 1524 and 1659. 

Continue to the most beautiful palaces and monuments of Marrakech, the Bahia Palace. Built in the late 19th century, the name literally means "brilliance" and was intended to be the greatest palace of its time. The best workers and artisans of the country have worked continuously for six years (1894-1900) to achieve it.

Finish your private tour in beauty with a memorable drive in the Majestic palm groove, a lush oasis of calm, where Arabian Kings build palaces and some of the world's top celebrities go on holiday. Guided camel rides can be arranged upon request in this beautiful oasis with plenty of laughter!

At the end of the tour, your driver will drop you off at your hotel in Marrakech with plenty of tales of the Magical imperial city.

Please note: This tour includes hotel pick up and drop off service. You can select your hotel from the list or select the "I'll type the address (next step)" message and write the name and address of your hotel in the relevant field during the booking process.
