To start your day, you’ll be met by your driver-guide at your hotel, ship or aeroport according to which option you choose. Hop in the sedan, car or minivan, and relax on the 2 or 3 hour drive south toward Marrakech, a must-visit city one of the jewels in Morocco’s crown, then meet your guide in the heart of Marrakech to begin your tour.
First, head to the 12th-century Koutoubia Mosque and admire its imposing minaret from the outside. Listen as your guide offers insight into the mosque’s role in Marrakech society today and gain insight into the ancient religion of Islam.
Continue to Bahia Palace, a beautiful fortress built in the 19th century and widely considered among the finest examples of Moroccan architecture in Marrakech. Admire the beautifully decorated hallways and suites, and learn of the palace’s turbulent history.
Head onward with your guide to the impressive Saadian Tombs, a 16th-century chamber where members of the Saadian family dynasty are buried. Saadian Sultan Ahmed al-Mansour ed-Dahbi was a man of enormous wealth, and he spared no expense in preparing his family’s final resting place.
After lunch (own expense) at a local restaurant or cafe of your choice, dive into the hustle and bustle of Marrakech’s famous souks. Explore the stalls at your leisure and perhaps pick up a souvenir or two of your visit.
Finish your time in Marrakech in the historical Djemaa el Fna square, where acrobats, fire-eaters, musicians, snake charmers and storytellers ply their trades the way they have for centuries. Wander around the square at your leisure and soak up the atmosphere then hop back in your vehicle for the drive back to port in Casablanca, where your tour will come to an end.
