Embark upon an exciting exploration of Morocco's world famous imperial city, beginning with pickup at your hotel or accommodation in Marrakesh.
Your first stop will be Majorelle Garden, where you will learn about the garden's French-influenced architecture and connection to the iconic French designer Yves Saint Laurent, amble along shady lanes, discover exotic plants, and walk past refreshing streams and pools filled with water lilies and lotus flowers.
You will then continue to one of the most beautiful palaces of Marrakesh, the Bahia Palace. Built in the late 19th century, the name literally means "brilliance" and was intended to be the greatest palace of its time. A magical mix of Hispano-Moresque exquisite architecture.
Next, you will immerse yourself in legend and grandeur on a shopping trip, which takes place in some of the oldest quarters in the 9th century old city of Marrakesh. You’ll be asked about which items you’re most interested in finding so that your guide can create a customized itinerary. To help you make the most of the Medina, your guide will lead you to the best shops, where local artisans make and sell unique authentic wares. You will meet with artists who are specialists in their fields and learn about their family businesses and their work, and feel their passion for what they do.
This could include a local leather shop where you can find Moroccan-style carpet bags, leather handbags, and jackets. A jeweler specializing in silver and bead work from the far reaches of Morocco. A local herbalist offering a variety of spices and argan oil. A carpet shop, ladies’ fashion outlets, including a caftan shop and a silk scarf vendor. A wondrous lamp shop specializing in high-quality filigree.
You'll enjoy a rest stop at an enchanting roof terrace café on the entertaining Djemaa El Fna square, where you'll admire the old city while sipping on freshly made Moroccan mint tea/orange juice (at own expense). Your tour will end with a memorable scenic drive in the royal palm groove, before you're dropped-off at your hotel or accommodation.INCLUDED EXCLUDED
