HOLIDAY OVERVIEW

 

Experience the magic and mystique of one of the most beguiling, most exciting and most enthralling cities on earth. 

 

Join us for a few unforgettable days in a place that's just a short hop from Europe, offers all the modern conveniences you'd expect from a major city, and yet still remains a world away. In Marrakesh and its surroundings, beneath the High Atlas mountains, you'll be transported to another realm - of warm sunshine even in the depths of winter, of maze-like half-roofed souks lined with a million different merchant's stalls, of hidden squares, ancient buildings and unforgettable food.

 

Stay in the tranquil surroundings of a traditional Riad, where life behind the walls offers an oasis of calm arranged around a garden courtyard, and head into the city to immerse yourself in Marrakesh's mesmerising melting pot of colour and sound.

Day 01: UK - Morocco

Fly to Marrakesh, meet your tour manager and transfer to your Riad. Relax or, depending on the time you arrive, head out to take in the city's exotic atmosphere this evening.

Day 02: Included Marrakesh Medina Tour

Join your guide for an unforgettable tour of Marrakesh's historic centre, journeying back in time as you explore the city's ancient Medina. This restored Old City is surrounded by red ochre walls, centred on the great square of the Djemâa El Fna, and watched over by the great Almohad Koutoubia Minaret - the city's most famous monument. You'll also visit the exquisite Saadian Tombs, the dazzling legacy of the Sultan Ahmed el Mansour and the Saadian dynasty. Close by, the Bahia Palace is the restored former home of the Grand Vizier Bou Ahmed, and perhaps the city's most opulent building.

Day 03: Included Atlas Mountains Foothills Tour

Journey into the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains, the beautiful region that is the favourite playground of Marrakshis, who flock to the valleys to escape the summer heat, and to the peaks in winter to indulge in the improbable pastime of skiing in Africa.

Day 04: Optional Day Trip to Essaouira

Today brings a chance to journey west across the plains on a tour to the Atlantic resort of Essaouira. With its white-washed and blue-shuttered houses, craftsmen's workshops, galleries and sandy beach, Essaouira is a perfect resort for wandering around - whether onto its ramparts for the views, around the harbour, or into the colourful souks of the Essaouira's own Medina. Enjoy a dip in the ocean, or a camel ride along the beach, and perhaps stop for lunch before you return to Marrakesh via the celebrated Val d'Argan winery, founded in 1994, and steadily building a reputation for excellent vintages. Then, this evening, you'll have another chance to enjoy the excitement of Djemâa El Fna.

Day 05: Optional Experiences

Head back into the Medina for some final sightseeing, or treat yourself from a choice of very special optional experiences, including the chance to take a Moroccan cookery course in the kitchens of the famed La Maison Arabe Hotel, or to experience a rejuvenating Berber massage.

 

This evening, head back to the night markets, or join our 1001 Nights evening and enjoy music and a traditional meal amid nomad tents.

Day 06: Morocco - UK

Bid farewell to Marrakesh, and return to the airport to catch your flight home.
