Tour description

Welcome to the Free Tour through the ancient and deep 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 without wasting time in stops for commercial purposes.

We start the tour from the Koutubiya Square where we admire the beauty of the highest minaret in the city.

Then we go to the famous Kasbah of Marrakech, former administrative part of the Almohad dynasty noted for its military architectural style, passing through the exteriors of the royal palace, the Bab Agnaou gate and the Saidian tombs.

From the walls of the Kasbah we enter the Jewish quarter called Barrio Mellah until we reach the Plaza de los Herreros to visit the exterior of the Bahía Palace, residence in other times of the grand vizier with his harem.

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

The visit ends with an orientation tour of the famous Marrakech souk where we will learn about the blacksmith and leather guilds.
