Stroll through the old Marrakech medina with an expert local guide as you discover an array of hidden gems. Benefit from skip-the-line access to the Bahia & Badii Palaces, then pay an optional visit to the Saadian Tombs. Begin your walking tour by passing the ruins of Sultan Ahmed El Mansour's 16th-century Grand Badi Palace. Catch a glimpse of the former affluence of this majestic city. Learn about how, at the height of its glory, the palace was considered the 8th wonder of the world. Then, continue your tour to the Bahia Palace - the jewel in the crown of Marrakech and a monument of breathtaking magnificence. Enter the monument with skip-the-line admission. 

As you explore inside, find out how it was constructed in the latter part of the 19th century and took the most skilled workers and artisans 6 years to complete. Finally, pay an optional visit to the Saadian Tombs, sealed for centuries until their rediscovered in 1917. Hear about how the tombs date back to the time of the sultan Ahmad al-Mansur. See the two main mausoleums within the enclosure, consisting of 66 tombs with 100 more lying outside the gardens.

Tour privée ou nous étions que deux. Énormément d’explication intéressante, guide super qui nous a même offert un thé à la fin . Juste attention à l’herboriste auquel il vous emmènera , je me suis renseigné sur internet et tout le monde parle d’un attrape touriste qui gonfle les prix par rapport au autre et qui vous arnaque .

We booked a German city tour in Marakech. The tour guide Mohamed Amrane led us through interesting places and winding streets. He also told many details about the culture and life in Morocco. During the sudden heavy rain, he took us to a restaurant for protection and invited us to tea with sweets on the roof terrace. He took as much time as we wanted and the whole tour ended up being 2 hours longer. We give a very good rating and will contact him on our next visit to Morocco and pick up travel tips.

We shared a very good time, it was very good. The guide was very nice, professional, charismatic and very kind. It is clear that visiting these places without a guide would be useless in my opinion because we visited the Bahia Palace with and without a guide and all the information that the guide gave us was absolutely essential.
