Over the years, Marrakech has evolved into a world class touristic attraction ranking first in the world according to tripadvisor in 2015!! and for good reasons. Travelers continue to be seduced by Marrakech’s unique architecture, vivid colors, and dizzying labyrinthine medina (which still intimidates me and I’m a native of Marrakech). Navigating the Souk and the Medina is no easy task and getting lost on those occasions you decide to venture out on your own is just part of the experience. The itinerary includes activities such as: a 3 day sahara tour, Hiking the atlas mountains, Essaouira day trip, Belly dancing lessons and fantasia show, and tons of fun.
Before departure, you will receive a brochure that goes over all destinations in great detail. We believe that putting destinations in their historical and cultural context brings them to life and makes them that much more memorable. It’s your homework, read it!! There will be a test.
Day 1: Pick up from either Marrakech’s or Casablanca’s airport. Just make sure you let us know which one you will be landing in. Please plan on arriving before 3Pm in order to attend the meet and greet dinner at the Riad with trip host and also a chance to meet your fellow tour companions. Dinner and reception will be at 7Pm. Please note that Casablanca’s airport is 2.5 hours away from Marrakech.
Day 2: After Breakfast at the Riad, we will meet our tour guide and take a joy stroll to see Marrakech’s main attractions. We will be walking most of the morning and well into the afternoon so wear comfortable shoes and drink plenty of water. For the evening, enjoy dinner at a fantasia and belly dancing show or go back to Jemma Elfna to see how it transforms at night (Just ask Andrew Zimmerman)
Day 3: Optional day trip to Essaouira, a coastal town 2 hours away from Marrakech. If you’re an avid fan of water wind sports, Essaouira is basically the Mecca of wind sports. Just let us know what activity you may be interested in and we can help arrange it.
