Discover the ornate palaces and monuments of Marrakech on a 3-hour sightseeing tour, and learn the history of Morocco’s “Red City.” Go to one of the largest mosques of the western Muslim world, see the gardens of Bahia Palace, and more.
What to Expect
Enjoy a comprehensive sightseeing tour of Marrakech, exploring the medieval streets of Morocco’s “Red City” through its palaces and monuments.
Following a pick-up from your hotel or riad at 14:30, explore one of Morocco’s oldest imperial cities at sites such as the Koutoubia, one of the largest and most beautiful mosques of the western Muslim world. Marvel at its 221-foot minaret and masterful architecture that evokes the Giralda of Seville.
Continues to a peaceful enclosure in the Kasbah to see the Saadian Tombs, dating back to the 16th century of Sultan Ahmad al-Mansu. Admire the colorful tiles, Arabic script, and intricate carvings, hidden to the world after they were sealed up until 1917.
Next, spend an hour at the 19th-century Bahia Palace, built in 7 years by 1,000 craftsmen from Fez. Intended to be the greatest example of Moroccan and Islamic architecture in the world, a haphazard arrangement of secret apartments open onto inner courtyards, set in the center of a 2-acre garden. See stunning stucco work, Islamic mosaics, and carved cedar wood roofs, surrounded by Moorish-style pleasure gardens of orange and cypress trees, and fragrant jasmine plants.
