Marrakech Medina Walking Tour

Marrakech Water Seller

Marrakech off the Beaten Path! 

Take in the vivid Red City and its carousing life of trade and fun!  Marrakech is about bargaining for treasures in dusty hanuts, the incredible tribal music and theatre at Djemaa el Fna… and so much more.

Accompanied by an experienced and knowledgeable Marrakech tour guide this tour will give you the best possible experience of the Old Medina!

You’ll enjoy the architectural wonders of Marrakech, from Koutoubia Mosque to the Ben Youssef Madersa. We take you to the Ben Salah, which is not on the typical tourist trail, where Moroccan people go to buy (or rent) their wedding garments and bands for festivals;  plus you will see the Old Jewish Quarter, the Mellah, too!

Your tour is tailored around the genuine beauty of Moroccan life.

Walk through the Old Medina with a focus on how people live and work.

Below is a taste of the itinerary for the first half of your day!

9:30 AM:  The walking tour starts from Riad Africa  and begins with tea or a juice at Dar Cherifa, which means “the holy house.” Cherifa is a place of sanctuary from the busy souk streets beyond and a literary café/art gallery.

10:00 AM:  Mouassine shopping souks. Skirt along the narrow residential streets where a small, wooden door may lead into a cavernous, neighborhood bakery or a palace! View artisans making wares in their workshops.

11:00-12:30 AM:  Ben Yosef Madersa. After viewing this popular tourist attraction (mainly because it is a rather magnificent place), we stroll into the Ben Salam neighbourhood where Moroccan people rent and buy musical instruments, bands and apparel for their weddings.
