Tour description

Welcome to the Free Tour of 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, highlighted by 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 at 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
16th century architecture.

In the Kasbah neighborhood you will discover with me the wood-fired ovens , the Hammams and the most native food markets where local people do their shopping.

From the walls of the Kasbah we enter the Jewish quarter called Barrio Mellah where one of the largest Jewish communities in the country lived , until we reach 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 beautiful and less touristy alley.

The visit ends in the famous Jamaa El Fna Square

Ali fue encantador, amable y habla bastante bien el español. El tour para mi un poco flojo. No ves realmente nada. Andas y andas y andas. Por lo menos no intentan venderte nada. 10€ por persona es lo que te piden minimo y a mi me parece mucho para lo que fue. He hecho muchos free tour y este ha sido de los mas flojos.
