Marrakech Surroundings & Essaouira

Exploring Marrakech will provide you with a fascinating sensorial experience:  The city’s medieval roots reveal themselves on a walk through the souks or kasbahs in the medina, whose snake charmers, spice stalls, and herbalists stimulate each of the senses. Orient yourself on a walking tour, or escape the sweltering heat and tick off attractions such as the Bahia Palace, Djemaa el Fna , Saadian Tombs, and Majorelle Garden on a tour by air-conditioned car. 

The minaret of the Koutoubia Mosque is visible from all over the city and can help you navigate through twisting alleys if you’re exploring independently. Just beyond the red sandstone walls of the Ochre City,  Atlas Mountains entice outdoor adventurers. Learn about contemporary Berber culture on a trip to Ourika Valley, stroll along the seawall in the Portuguese-influenced Essaouira, tour the UNESCO World Heritage site at Ait Ben Haddou, drive to the base of Ouzoud Falls. If you’ve got time to delve deeper in the desert, multi-day adventures combine camel rides, star gazing, and ancient tombs, and reveal the heart of the Sahara.

Enjoy a free day exploring this coastal port town any way you like (take a walk along the breezy coast, and stop for dinner with a view, stroll over to a local café for some live entertainment, courtesy of local musicians, magicians, and fire-dancers...)
