Marrakech is an easy city to reach by direct flight, and a fascinating city to explore for its vibrant colors and diversity. The old blends harmoniously with the modern. The intense popular life of Jemaa el Fnaa, the old medina and the most important historical attractions contrast with the new city of Gueliz, its shops, cafes and museums.
Clickexcursions teams will pick you up at the airport and drive you to the hotel for check-in. After you have taken possession of your room, we leave for Jemaa el Fna, the market of the acrobats, where you will be able to spend the evening between the snake charmers, the fortunetellers, the musicians – and the famous street restaurants of the market .
After a good breakfast taken at the riad / hotel, we come to take you for a guided tour Morocco of two hours in the medina and souk of Marrakech. We also visit the Bahia Palace and finish our tour at the Majorelle Garden.
