About the tour

Highlights: Jamaa El Fna, Koutoubia Mosque, Riad Zitoun quarter, Visit of the center of the Souks.

Tour lasts about 2 hours.

We may wait 15 minutes.

NO SHOPPING HASSLE!

Departure: Between 10 and 10:15 AM and between 2 PM and 2:15

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.

The tour guide does his best to improve his work in order to meet different expectations and contribute with his work to help travelers but again this is just a short tour.

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.

4- Do please follow the guide in the Souks if you don't want to miss the group.

Many shops in the Souks close on Friday.

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 tour. It was a nice orientation to the city. Zaim gave a little background information about the city and its history. Then he guided us around the souks and tried to orient us to where we were throughout the tour using different landmarks and signs. I very much enjoyed this tour with Zaim. In a chaotic city like Marrakech, it was nice to have Zaim to show me around. I would recommend to others!

I enjoyed the tour, but Zaim was very softly spoken. Also, he made a couple of jokes about women, which the tour could have done without.

Great tour and great guide. Considering it's a free walking tour (you can tip him as much as you ), I really don't understand some of these negative reviews.

If you think you can do better, get yourself a LP guide or spend 300 MAD for a hour tour.
