Day 1 : Arrival Marrakesh

Location: Marrakesh

Upon your arrival at International Airport in Marrakesh, meet and greet an assistant who will assist you with the transfer to your hotel. If you’re feeling knackered after the flight, you can stay in the hotel to put your feet up and make the most of the available services. But if you’re itching to start exploring this fascinating city, then hit the streets and make your own way towards the local shops and bars and explore this vibrant city on your own. Dinner serves at the hotel. 

Overnight in Marrakesh.

Day 2 : Marrkaesh

Location: Marrakesh

Wake up to your breakfast at the hotel and get ready for your full-day tour of Marrakesh. Admire the Saadian tombs and the exterior of the magnificent Koutoubia mosque and its 70-metre-high minaret. It dates from the late 12th century when most of northern Africa and the southern Iberian Peninsula were part of the Almohad Empire. Behold the beautiful Bahia Palace with its exceptional cedar and marble decorations. Take a rest in Menaras Gardens and enjoy its tranquil and calm atmosphere. In the afternoon visit the famous place Djemaa El Fna, Main Square and market place of Medina, full of local products and craft centres. During the day you can experience surprising sights, like monkey trainers or snake charmers and during the night it becomes the centre of the local musicians and other traditional shows.

See the imposing city walls and the beautifully decorated gates of Bab Mansour and Bab El-Khemis, the Royal Stables and the Jewish Quarter.

Boasting more than 12 centuries of history, as well as a medina that is a UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site and the oldest university on the planet, Fez is a multifarious city renowned for the splendor of its faded glory. The medina, Fez el Bali, is a vast network of winding alleys hemmed in by ancient walls. Despite being car-free, the bustle, noise, shouting, and the smells of tanned leather, oriental perfumes, barbecues, and sweet pastries create a sense of movement and vibrancy that draws you deep into its soul. Head to the Bou Inania and Medersa Attarine (entrances to Attarine and Bou Inania included), both of which showcase exquisite central courts. Then see the Karaouiyine Mosque as well as the Nejjarrine fountain and the Souks & the tanners’ district where you can take pictures of a world of colours and discover the traditional techniques to work leather.
