Full description

Discover this medieval desert enclave's beautiful and spectacular treasures on a guided walking tour. 

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.

Informative and fun experience overall. Our tourguide (apologies I didn’t catch his name) was great, shared lots of interesting info and answered all our questions. Only downside was that we overran by almost an hour so that’s something to factor in when planning your day. Also worth noting that entrance ticket prices are not included in the price of this tour.

Great Tour experience. You learn a lot with a guide. Going by yourself you would just look around and admire, but with a tour guide you get the history and details that you never would alone. Worth the money. Also we get historical and current knowledge of city during the walking portions of tour. Highly recommend.
