Marrakech Airport - overnight in Marrakech
The soon your flight lands at Marrakech airport, you get your luggage and walk outside the terminals to meet your local driver who is holding a sign with your name and our logo. Put the luggage in the vehicle and drive to your accommodation. Check-in and relax at this magical Riad enjoying the best it offers from the spacious rooms to the finest spa treatments and wellness to make your stay special and exclusive.
With its bustling souks, flavorful food, and famously welcoming hospitality, it's no wonder that tourists are starting to take note of Marrakesh. known as the ‘Red City’, Marrakech is the exotic imperial city of the south. It is the fourth largest city in Morocco and lies near the foothills of the snow-capped the Atlas Mountains. Djemaa-el-Fna square bustles with acrobats, story-tellers, water sellers, dancers, and musicians. In the evening the square transforms into a huge open-air restaurant with smoke rising from the many food stalls.
Depending on your check-in time at your accommodation, your driver is at your disposal for any further transportation to take you around the city for any exciting dinner plans you have in mind. For the Medina visit, no worries, you will have a local guide tomorrow.
** Approximate driving is 30mins (stops are NOT included).
Marrakech discovery with your local guide
Your local guide is coming to meet you in the morning at the accommodation to enter the old medina where you continue on foot to discover historical palaces, museums, and Koranic schools. Visit the Bahia Palace, Saadian Tombs, Koutoubia Mosque (from outside) and explore the famous souks. This tour in the Medina will be done on foot since most of the medina is closed to traffic. During the day you'll stop for lunch (not included). Entrance Fees are not included.
Please enjoy the afternoon exploring the new city at your own leisure; most of our travelers find it easy to navigate on their own and visit the Jardin Majorelle taking a local taxi; not like the old Medina which is like a maze. For you, no worries, you have your private driver at your side all the time for your magical stay :)
The Jardin Majorelle is the creation of French painter Jacques Majorelle, who spent 40 years injecting his passion and creativity into this magical garden. Complete with enchanting little lanes, tranquil streams, and over 300 species of stunning plants, Jardin Majorelle is perfect for those who need a break from the busy city.
Marrakech - Imlil (High Atlas Mountains) - Hammam (steam bath)
This morning, around 10h30, you will be picked up from your riad to leave the busy city of Marrakech toward the quite little Berber village, Imlil, in the High Atlas mountains (1700 m altitude). The surroundings of Imlil are dominated by 4000 m high mountains, part of the year covered by snow. The highest mountain of North Africa, Mount Toubkal (4167 m) can be seen from Imlil. The surroundings are excellent for walking and enjoying the nature and local environment. You will need comfortable sports shoes if you love to try a local hiking experience (not included).
The Kasbah du Toubkal is located 40 miles from Marrakech, above the High Atlas mountain village of Imlil. This unique mountain eco-friendly lodge sits on a hilltop, at 1,800 m altitude, amongst North Africa’s highest peaks. The Kasbah is a 15 min walk/mule ride which winds uphill from Imlil.
Maybe a good idea to get into a Hammam treatment this evening if you love to (not included); you just need to inform the reception at your accommodation, and they can easily help. We can also include it and book it for you in advance if you want us to do so :)
** Approximate driving is 1.5 hours (stops are NOT included).
