On this privately guided Marrakech medina tour take in the vivid Red City, its
monuments and carousing life of trade and fun! Accompanied by an experienced and knowledgeable Marrakech tour guide this comprehensive full day tour will give you the best possible experience of the Old Medina! You’ll enjoy the architectural wonders of Marrakech, from Koutoubia Mosque to the Ben Youssef Medrasa.
You’ll also visit the Old Jewish Quarter, the Mellah, and take a walk through the famous souks of Marrakech. At Place Ben Youssef we visit the Museum of Marrakech, housed in the Dar Menebhi Palace, built at the end of the 19th century by Mehdi Menebhi. In this area we also have the chance to visit the 14th century Islamic college - Ben Youssef Madrasa, regarded as the largest Madrasa in Morocco. Its prayer hall and courtyards are decorated in beautiful tiles and carved wood. Close by is the Almoravid Koubba, said to be the oldest building in Marrakech, dating from the 12th century.
In the Djemaa el Fna, a huge public square and market place in the heart of Marrakech medina, we learn about its fascinating history. Acrobats and jugglers, storytellers, snake-charmers, beggars, boxers, musicians, fresh juice and food sellers all compete for your attention - and a few dirhams’ in the process. It is easy to spend several hours wandering the square, sipping mint tea and savouring this unique stage.
The heartbeat of Marrakech can undoubtedly be felt in the souks or markets of the medina. Our guide will help you to navigate your way through the labyrinth of connecting alleyways and streets.
