Full description
Meet your guide and driver at your hotel/riad for the short drive to La Koutobia Mosque, the largest mosque in Marrakech. Built in the 12th century, its 69-meter-tall minaret is the landmark of Marrakech. Outside the Mosque, you’ll learn about Islam and its 5 pillars as well as the worshipping habits of Moroccans. Your 3-hour guided tour continues to Bahia Palace, a 19th century monument that is an indication of the wealth of Moroccan royalty of that time. The 160-room palace took 15 years to build, and it provides an opportunity to admire and learn about Moroccan architecture. A short walk from the palace, through the old Jewish quarter, you’ll come to the Saadian dynasty tombs, dating back to the 17th century. The site, discovered in 1917, and with its ornately decorated rooms and ceilings, has become a major attraction for visitors to Marrakech. Continue from here to the oldest part of the medina, where your guide will take you on a walking adventure through the maze-like streets, past spice shops, artisan workshops and art galleries. Your guided tour comes to an end in Jemaa el Fna Square, the most famous square in all of Africa. Storytellers, snake charmers, musicians, orange juice sellers and henna tattoo artists all compete for your attention.

tour

The guide was on time and was able to answer all questions. He chose an individual route that was tailored to our needs. However, the 20 € additional charge from the driver at the end of the tour was strange because of the alleged additional trip, which he immediately took back if he refused.

Good German speaking guide

We had Mustapha as a guide who spoke German very well. Unfortunately, he was a bit haphazard. We were alone in the Médina the evening before and would not have seen and heard much more if we had not actively asked. It would have been nice if he had offered us destinations that you don't necessarily know as a tourist. 3 hours medina - I don't necessarily need a guide ...

Very informative and worthwhile!

Surprise! We were actually picked up in the riad and that by a German speaking guide, we were very happy! We saw and learned a lot. The guide was very nice and patient, he answered all questions. A little more expensive, but it was worth it. In between, a driver was always expecting us for the long distances and drove to the next viewing point. It was a great afternoon!
