per adult Price is £15

Don't get lost in the labyrinth streets of the Medina and make your first visit with an experienced local guide and discover life as it has existed for hundreds of years. Visit historic sites, see colourful souks, be enchanted by snake dances and story tellers, and feel the life of the Old Town on this guided walking tour.

During the walk, see the dramatic Almohad Koutoubia Minaret, a masterpiece of Hispano-Moresque art & Marrakech's landmark.

Meander through the alleyways of the Medina that make up the aromatic souks of Marrakech. Discover which authentic goods the locals have to offer, from authentic handicrafts, Berber carpets and leather goods to babouches (slippers), delicate jewellery and exotic spices.

See the copper and bronze artists at work, and visit the forged hardware, marquetry and pottery souks. Then head to the Berber apothecary for a display of magic potions and a refreshing mint tea.

Your tour is complete with a visit to the UNESCO-listed Jemaa el-Fnaa, the traditional meeting place for peasants and merchants from the Sous, High Atlas and southern regions – making it the heart of Marrakech.

By morning the square is crowded with fruit and spice sellers and guerrabs (water sellers) with their leather water bottles. By afternoon, see Gnawa dancers, snake charmers and performing monkeys, and hear the sounds of musicians and story tellers.

It would have been better if there was 2 separate tours. 1 for English language and 1 for French. Our tour guide spent more time with the french speaking tourists.
