  • One half-day guided tour conceived to be a kind of introduction to old town of Marrakech, the “Medina”. With the purpose of giving some geographical and historical bench marks.

    Our guide will expose you shortly the history of Marrakech, its foundation and its almost thousand years of history. The visit starts with the Koranical school “Medersa Ben Youssef” established in the 14th century, but rebuilt about 200 years later. From there you will cross completely the souks, a living place with its intricate infrastructure. Different labours are assembled. Your guide will explain the organization of it, and will show you the districts where the principal trade associations are installed. Then you will reach the place Jemaa el Fna, the heart of the city, which owes most of its fame to the large number of spectacles going on all around all the time. Snake charmers, singers, story tellers, wizard, healers, restaurants...
