  • From Agadir: Day Trip to Marrakech

    1. From Agadir: Day Trip to Marrakech

    Get picked up from your hotel in Agadir at 7 am and take the highway from Agadir to Marrakech. Arrive in Marrakesh after a 3-hour drive, with some stops for rest and photo opportunities while crossing the High Atlas mountains. Meet your local tour guide and begin your walking tour of the Medina, the Old City of Marrakech. Start by visiting the city's most famous historical monuments including the famous Bahia Palace, the gardens of the Koutoubia Mosque and finally the Jamaa El Fana famous Square. At the end of your tour, enjoy some free time to wander through the streets of the local market, the Souk, haggle with the shop vendors and enjoy some local street food.  Afterward, meet your driver and begin the drive back to your hotel in Agadir. Arrive back at your hotel at around 9 pm.

    This was an amazing day. Well worth the journey on the bus for 3 and half hours each way. The sights and sounds were brilliant. Arkham was a good guide very knowledgeable however he had two coach loads of people to look after which meant a lot of time wasted whilst waiting for others. If there were a smaller amount of people it would have been much easier to hear what he was saying and to follow in the souks. Was still a great day would definitely recommend.

  • Agadir: Full-Day Marrakech Trip

    2. Agadir: Full-Day Marrakech Trip

    Go deep into Moroccan culture, from the sea to traditional and fascinating architecture. This tour will offer you the opportunity to see different spots and cultures in one day trip. Your day will begin as you depart from Agadir in the early morning, taking to the road towards Marrakech. Following a total of 2.5 hours crossing the High Atlas Mountains, you will arrive at Marrakech at around 12:00PM. At that moment, you will meet your local tour guide and discover the Old Medina of Marrakech by walking through the charming architecture. It is a historical tour of monuments, which includes the famous Bahia Palace and the famous El Koutoubia Mosque, as well as plenty of free time to walk through the old medina souks (a great place to see artistic and home-made items). Next, you will open the door of a nice and relaxing "riad" in the old medina to enjoy a delicious lunch consisting of Moro...

    This trip was excellent. We were picked up at our hotel at 8.00 (a bit later than they’d suggested - the change was not a problem) in a very comfortable MPV. Our driver, Fouad, was excellent; he seemed to know his way around both cities, and coped amazingly well with the random and chaotic waltz of driving in Agadir and Marrakesh. The tour itself, with our personal guide Abdul, gave us just the right balance of culture and sightseeing. He guided us through the maze of the souk and was very knowledgeable about all the places we visited. The only downside was the 3-course Moroccan lunch; the food was very uninteresting and not plentiful (plain chopped tomatoes and lettuce for starters, meagre chicken for mains and sliced oranges for dessert) - quite disappointing. However don’t let that put you off (and hopefully the lunch will improve with feedback). We had a lovely day in Marrakesh with an excellent guide and amazingly good driver.

    We were picked up on time at our hotel in a spacious car. Our driver was very friendly and the drive very relaxing. Our guide in Marrakech was excellent. The tour through the city was very informative, interesting and without haste. We were given enough time to look more closely at things we wanted to and take photographs. Everything was explained in excellent German in a friendly and intelligent way. The lunch at the Souks was wonderful! The one day trip to Marrakech was quite sufficient to have a great first impression of the city.

Very good guide, explained everything in three languages, German, English, French. Arrived in Essaouira everyone could choose from if they want to take part in the city tour and food or start on their own. The city tour was detailed and interesting, after the tour he showed us a restaurant where you can eat well, but you don't have to. We ate there it was really good. After dinner we are off on our own. Has responded to the wishes of the participants

The tour was well organized, guide had a lot of knowledge and driver picked us up wherever needed. We were picked up by Fouad from our hotel, drive was realy comfortable and it went fast. We saw every place that we wanted, We went threw souk and sellers didnt nagg because we had a local guide with us. We felt safe. Food in road was ok.

The excursion is really interesting to discover the main aspects of Marrakech. To do if you come to Morocco absolutely! We ate at an excellent restaurant otherwise.

very kind people especially Fuad, great hospitality. we enjoyed our trip greatly
