Memorable, Marvelous, Marrakech with its beautiful glowing orange walls is surely the must see attraction of Morocco. Let Fes Desert Trips be your guide and partner as together we explore this beautiful ancient city nestled underneath the snow-capped peaks of the High Atlas Mountains as you can start your Desert Tour from Marrakech or finish in Marrakech.
As you approach you will be astonished by the warm glow given off by the pale rose-coloured ramparts that enclose 20 kilometres of bustling markets; the souks, the warm orange of the palace walls and the red mud-brick streets and houses. A thousand years of history are preserved here; Marrakech was a great Imperial city for much of it, perched on the edge of the Sahara Desert and now a UNESCO World Heritage site of note. Marrakech throbs with a vibrancy and optimism unequalled in the country, it's hustle and bustle is exciting and draws you in to the whole experience.
You can be caught up in the wonders of the Djemaa El-Fna, the busiest square in Africa, heaving with musicians, snake charmers, story-tellers and dancers, loud with shouts of joy and excitement, the blowing of horns and the beating of drums. Here there are many stalls of delicious food as well as cafes and restaurants.
Come with us to the Palmeraie, the tranquil green oasis at the edge of the city, home to 150,000 palm trees and an excellent place to enjoy a camel ride, haggle over prices for handicrafts, spices and souvenirs in the souks, visit the tanneries to see the traditional making of leather; then the Saadian tombs with extraordinary decoration, the Koutoubia Mosque, beautifully lit at night; the Dar Si Said museum, filled with history, weapons, musical instruments and other ancient artifacts; and the tranquility of the Majorelle Gardens.
Marrakech has so much to see and experience and is only a short step from a Saharan adventure so allow Fes Desert Trips to give you the best possible visit to this unforgettable city.
