Itinerary

Expand all Expand All Collapse all Collapse All

Day 1 to 1 - Arrive Marrakech

The first day of your tour is simply an arrival day with no pre-organised activities. In order to allow time to relax and see some of the sights you may wish to add pre-tour accommodation.

Welcome to Marrakech, one of Morocco's favourite cities. It is known as the country's ‘pearl of the south' and is surrounded by the spectacular peaks of the Atlas Mountains. Take a step back in time and lose yourself in the maze of souks and spice markets in the ancient medina on a guided city tour. Wander the labyrinthine of stalls with colourful skeins of wool drying above your head against bright blue skies. Pick your way through alleys lined with elaborately decorated brass lamps while dodging donkeys as well as locals on scooters as you go. Watch artisans making their wares right where they sell them. Enjoy some banter and barter with a friendly seller, then indulge in a traditional mint tea or thick Moroccan coffee to recover.

The mild climate invites you to rest and relax, however, with its narrow streets lined by workshops and art galleries this pretty blue and white washed city has plenty to keep you busy during your stay. Essaouira also has a long, wild ribbon of beach which is a great place to watch windsurfers, kitesurfers and sand-yachters show off their talents in the brisk sea breeze.
