Magical Marrakech

Suggested Itinerary

Day 1 – Marrakech

Scheduled flight to Marrakech from your preferred airport – transfer with our professional guide in our private executive coach to the 4* Hotel Elanalous – dinner in the hotel.

Day 2 – Marrakech guided tour

Half day city tour takes in the outside of 12th century Koutoubia Mosque, Morocco’s most famous and whose minaret is regarded as a symbol of Marrakech, the beautiful carvings of the Saadian Tombs, the fine architecture of the ancient Bahia Palace and the Menara Basin, built for military exercises in the 12th century – included lunch at a carefully selected restaurant in the main square – afternoon in the Souks, a maze of hundreds of shops, small streets and narrow alleyways and a feast for the senses with row after row of spices, perfumed oils, magic potions, silver and gold, leather goods, carpets and rugs.

Day 3 – Essaouira

Two and a half hour drive to the coastal port of Essaouira on the Atlantic Ocean, Morocco’s most prosperous city in the 17th and 18th century and still one of North Africa’s most beautiful cities with a mixture of French, Portuguese and Berber architecture and a thriving port, old defensive walls, charming streets and famous markets.

Day 4 – Ourika Valley

Full day in the peaceful Ourika Valley, located approximately 60 kilometres from Marrakech in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains – the small mud houses dotted along the Valley give no clue to the 21st century life we have just left behind and included lunch is at an authentic berber house powered by a water mill – optional evening meal of traditional Moroccan cuisine and entertainment at the excellent Chahramane Palais.

Day 5 – Marrakech

Morning free to explore Marrakech – transfer to the airport for our scheduled flight home.

Reviews for Magical Marrakech

Date of tour: October 2016

Just to report we had a great time in Marrakech and would thoroughly recommend it. The hotel was excellent with good food and an exceptional swimming pool. Our guide was brilliant. We would recommend him for future tours. Our driver and his assistant were also very good and helpful.
