Full description
Discover the enchanting and spectacular treasures of this medieval desert enclave on a guided walking tour. Stroll through the old Marrakech medina with an expert local guide as you discover an array of hidden gems along the way. Benefit from skip-the-line access to both 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 which were sealed up for centuries until they were rediscovered in 1917. Hear about how the tombs date back to the time of the sultan Ahmad al-Mansur. See the 2 main mausoleums within the enclosure, consisting of 66 tombs with 100 more which lie outside in the gardens.

Had an amazing day with Mohammed! Really took care of us and showed us around. Amazing experience learning about the pre sultans and kings of morocco. He is also a very lovely respectful man to talk to genuinely. Me and my siblings had such an memorable experience and you will too!! If I could rate you 100 stars I would! Thank you so much Mohammed!

Our guide allowed us to visit these marvels of Marrakech. We appreciated his professionalism and kindness. Thanks to him, we were able to go from place to place without getting lost in the maze of streets so typical of the old town. In short, we highly recommend the guided tour.

Nous avons passé trois heures avec notre guide Mohamed qui était absolument génial ! Un guide qui nous a emmené dans Marrakech à la découverte de plusieurs quartiers, du palais Bahia et de la mosquée, qui a pu nous enrichir de son savoir historique et culturel, des dizaines d’anecdotes et de détails, le tout avec simplicité, professionnalisme et humour. Bref on n’aurait pas pu rêver mieux pour notre premier jour dans cette ville. A recommander, merci Mohamed !!!
