Tour description

Welcome to the Free Tour of the imperial and multicultural Marrakech.
The Medina (old town) preserved largely intact for centuries, is the largest in Morocco.
To get to know it in the best way, we review the history and culture of Marrakech.

We start the tour from the Koutoubia Mosque Square, noted for its colossal tower of Almohad art from the 12th century.

Next to the mosque we admire the first European neighborhood within an Arab Medina, highlighting the French consulate and the houses with balconies.

Arriving in the southern part of the city, we will show you the exterior of the royal residence where the king stays during his stay in Marrakech, the slate door of Bab Agnaou and we will explain from the outside the history of the Saidian Tombs , a jewel
architecture of the 16th century.

In the Kasbah neighborhood you will get to know with me the wood ovens , the Hammams and the most indigenous food markets where local people do their shopping.

From the walls of the Kasbah we entered the Jewish Quarter called Barrio Mellah where one of the largest Jewish communities in the country lived, until we reached the Plaza de los Herreros to visit the exterior of the Bahía Palace and the Badía Palace.

Then we went to visit the famous Dar Si Said Museum located in a nice and less touristy alley.

where acrobats, monkey tamers gather...

Viajamos para un fin de semana a Marrakech y, este tour te aporta todo lo que necesitas saber para conocer bien la ciudad en poco tiempo. Ali habla perfectamente español, nos asombró el conocimiento que tiene de toda la cultura española, su admiración, y la facilidad con la que explica e interrelaciona todo lo referente a Marrakech. Sin lugar a dudas, es todo un acierto y repetiría siempre con él sin dudarlo.

Alí lleva un pequeño altavoz que se agradece en las calles más transitadas. Es una pasada, tiene un amplio conocimiento de la historia marroquí y española y te va dando datos cruzados de ambos países. Además de otros, mi marido es argentino descendiente de sirio-libanes y nos sorprendió detalles que nos dio también sobre este país y las migraciones. Un pozo de sabiduría a la par que honesto, simpático y cordial. Un 10, gracias Alí! Te recomendaré sin duda a todos los viajeros que vayan a Marrakech, saludos! :)
