Tour description

Do you want to know Marrakech from the hand of a local? My name is Hamid, and I have been an official Spanish-speaking guide for more than 14 years. I have been lucky enough to make my passion my job. He enjoyed showing travelers every corner of my city, its customs and traditions. I wait for you in Marrakesh.

WALKING THROUGH THE SOUK:

 After meeting at the meeting point we will start the tour entering the Medina. We will walk through the neighborhood of the 7 curves , one of the most typical founded in the s. XI. On this walk we can discover the exterior of one of the sacred patrons of Marrakech, the Maosoleo Moulay Laksour . The visit will continue through the Mouassine Quarter , with its famous 16th century fountain. This district is one of the liveliest and makes an introduction to the most original markets, such as the Grand Souk of Marrakech , where you can enjoy the city , one of the excellent memories that you will keep of the city, (we crossed the dyers , the copper and bronze craftsmen, the blacksmiths' guild and the fur auctions , etc.).
As we delve into the social life, we will carry out a socio-cultural review on the way of life of the local people and the most impressive anecdotes about the city in a very charming walking tour.
On our way, we will observe the exteriors of one of the religious centers of the city , the Ben Youssef Madrasa , and its surroundings such as the mosque , the library , the Almoravid dome and the Marrakech museum .

And we will arrive at the Kasbah , where the Saadian Tombs dating from the 16th century are located, you will love the mausoleums of great beauty and decorated with mosaics in which numerous sultans, warriors and servants of the Saadian Dynasty are buried.
We will stop at Bab Agnaou , to take a photo of one of the 19 gates of Marrakech , built in the 12th century in the Almohad empire, it is one of the most beautiful and well preserved of the walls of Marrakech . We will pass the exterior of the Royal Palace and in front of the tomb of the founder of Marrakech , Youssef Ibn Tachafine .

Moha es un Guru genial, es muy amable, respetuoso, tiene una memoria increíble y sabe muchísimo de la historia de su país. Nos contó con la mayor profesionalidad y objetividad sobre muchos temas del país a lo largo del recorrido por la ciudad, nos habló sobre su cultura, el motivo de muchos de los patrimonios emblemáticos, las comidas, las tradiciones culturales, la música, las creencias religiosas, los idiomas, se aprende muchísimo! Además nos dió recomendaciones para disfrutar la ciudad, sobre hammams a los que ir, lugares donde cambiar dinero… Muy recomendado para ubicarse recién llegan!

La verdad que nos decepcionó mucho, éramos 36 personas y se hizo muy difícil seguir al grupo y poder escuchar al guía. Fueron casi 5 horas que se hicieron un poco difíciles de llevar. Me hubiera gustado más cercania y mayor información histórica.
