Meeting point:

To be in the right meeting point, you first need to be in the big square called JAMAA EL FNA, and then look for the post office and I'll be in front of BARID CASH of the post office, wearing a white hat and holding a sign saying: Zaim free tours.

There are 2 sides of the post office. The main entrance, the big door in front of Jamaa El Fna Square and a small door with a sign of BARID CASH on top, at the other side of the post office in front of a garden.

I'll be waiting on the other side of the post office, not the main entrance but in front of the main entrance of Barid Cash near the second ATM of the post office (in front of the garden) in Jamaa El Fan Square.

Tour description:

Visit of the Koutoubia mosque, (12th century) from outside.

Then cross the famous Mellah quarters with its unique architecture and walk along Riad Zitoun quarter. (Guide will show you directions towards Bahia Palace, Badiaa palace and museums).

Then head towards the famous Souks of Marrakech crossing one of the typical districts of the old city called Medina.

Your guide will help you wander in the colorful labyrinths of the main Souks and discover different handicraft specialties and hundreds of shops.

You will walk along Musée de Marrakech, Medersa Ben Youssef, and the Kouba Almoravide before heading back ( about 15 minutes shortcut) towards the big square Jama el Fna.

NB:

1- Do please not have too big expectations in case you are willing to discover everything about this destination because it's about a short walking orientation tour.

This tour is very useful to do at the beginning of your trip in order to have a global idea about the city.

2- Please do inform me in advance in case you are not coming.

3- This is a short orientation tour to visit parts of the old city of Marrakech, the Medina, it is not a tour to visit monuments or for shopping but your tour guide will show you some monuments on the way which you may visit later.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

I really enjoyed this orientation tour. It was nice to have someone to walk through the Souks with and also to learn a lot about the culture. We got a lot out of the tour and would recommend it!

We did not get much interesting information on the city or the sights. The other people left in the middle of the tour and the guide left chasing after them to pay him. Wouldn’t recommend this tour.
