Itinerary

  • For your exciting Marrakech sightseeing tour from Agadir you will be picked up at 6:30am from your hotel in Agadir. You will set out for Marrakech in an air-conditioned vehicle with your guide. The excursion takes around 18 hours and you will cover a distance of approximately 580 km (348 miles). At around 8:00am you will stop for a coffee break (payable direct). You will arrive in Marrakech at around 10:15am. Formerly an imperial city and important hub for camel caravans, Marrakech is cradled by the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Because of the rich ochre colour of its buildings, it is also known as the 'Red City'. You will also see the Saadian tombs in Marrakech which date back to the reign of the sultan Ahmad al-Mansur (1578-1603). The tombs were discovered in 1917 and have been a major attraction to visitors of Marrakech ever since. You will also see The Menara gardens located to the west of Marrakech, at the gates of the Atlas mountains. They were built in the 12th century (c. 1130) by the Almohad ruler Abd al-Mu'min. Another short stop will be at the delightful Bahia Palace, built at the end of the 19th century. You will enter the complex to view the stunning stuccos, paintings, mosaics and carved cedar wood, and enjoy the sweet-scented Moorish-style pleasure gardens. You will then have time to explore the Medina, the old part of Marrakech, with its labyrinthine alleyways, courtyards and cul de sacs. There are lots of colourful stalls selling carpets and other handicrafts. If you decide to buy, don't rush, and be prepared for hard bargaining. By about 1:00pm you will enjoy a delicious lunch at the Dar Nejjarine restaurant. The menu includes the following: Choice of tagines (slow-cooked aromatic stews): such as kefta (chopped meat), or chicken Couscous Tfaya with Beans and pulses Fruits of the season Drinks with the meal are not included and are payable direct. Around 3:45pm, you will plunge into the cultural extravaganza of Djema El Fna.

You will have free time to enjoy all the extraordinary entertainments before meeting your guide for dinner at the Palais Chahramane restaurant around 6:00pm. The menu includes the following: Moroccan salad or soup Tagine (a slow-cooked aromatic stew) with chicken and lemon Couscous with seven sorts of vegetables Fruits of the season Tea or coffee and Moroccan pastries (Drinks with the meal are not included and alcohol is not served in the restaurant.) After a delicious meal you will return to Djema El Fna, where new entertainers and on-lookers will have joined the great street show. Around 8:00pm you will board your vehicle for the return journey.
