Start your guided city tour with a professional art historian guide, who will pick you up with a driver from your accommodation, to explore the main highlights of the red city. During the guided tour, you will visit the Koutoubia mosque of Marrakech, The Koutoubia is the largest mosque in Marrakech with a stunning 70-meter high minaret, following this, visits the Saadian Tombs, sealed up for centuries until they were rediscovered in 1917. The tombs date back to the time of the sultan Ahmad al-Mansur. There are two main mausoleums within the enclosure, consisting of 66 tombs while 100 more are laid outside in the gardens. Notice the wonderful Hispano-Moorish architecture that surrounds the burial ground of the royal family, and Visit the 19th century Bahia Palace, surrounded by beautifully-manicured gardens filled with sweet-smelling flowers and fruit trees. The aristocratic palace has beautifully painted residential rooms and a lush Moorish style garden in the courtyard.

And finally, we will Visit the colorful Souks with their tinsmiths, dyers, herbalists stalls, and workshops; ending at Djemaa El Fna square, where hundreds of locals meet every day to enjoy the storytellers, musicians, snake charmers, acrobats, jugglers and performers of each and every sort.

Majorel Gardens & Berber art museum: These gardens derive their name from their creator, the painter Jacques Majorelle and were created in 1920 and bought back in 1966, by Pierre Bergé and Yves Saint-Laurent. The garden today exhibits plants of all kinds from around the world, pools filled with water lilies and lotus, bright colors dominated by intense blue (majorelle blue). In the heart of the Majorelle garden, there is a museum of Berber art which presents exclusively a collection of objects from various regions of Morocco.
