What you can expect

When in Morocco, you must visit the city of Marrakesh. On this day trip, stroll through the city and take in the sights including famous souks and Bahia Palace, taste Marrakesh tagine and return to Casablanca for the evening.

Your day starts as your private driver picks you up from your Casablanca hotel and takes you to Marrakesh, a weekend getaway for jet-set travellers. Upon arrival in Marrakesh, meet your guide and explore the city, including the iconic Koutoubia Mosque with its white Koubba, built by the Almohads, and Bahia Palace, once the luxurious home of the former sultan's harem.

After having tagine and kebabs for lunch at Dar Nejjarine, a Moroccan restaurant near the Koutoubia Mosque, visit the medina and the famous souks of Marrakesh. Ask your guide to show you the ancient bakers' ovens as you wander through the colourful labyrinth, walking by a dried fruit and spices souk, as well as baskets, rugs, leather goods, jewellers, kissaria, babouch, handbags and the beautiful kaftan souk.

This tour is private, allowing for some variety in the itinerary along the way. Stop at a Berber pharmacy with ancient medicines, spices and tea before entering the Ben Youssef Madrasa, featuring Moorish-style design and once the largest Islamic university in the Maghreb.

See the famed square, Djemaa El Fnaa, and during some free time, meet soothsayers, snake charmers and storytellers, then watch performing monkeys, magicians, dancers and musicians. Say goodbye to your guide and return to Casablanca, having experienced the magic of Marrakesh.
