The day begins with pickup from your accommodation and heads to the enchanting and picturesque Jardin Majorelle, a botanical garden formerly owned by Yves Saint Laurent. Stroll through the luscious trees and exotic plants of this magical oasis, admiring the view of water lilies and lotus flowers that float in the ponds.

Later, visit the exquisite Bahia Palace to admire the fine Moorish architecture and gorgeous ceramic tiles. From here, stroll through the Jewish Quarter where you can get a better understanding of the important role of the Jewish culture and community in developing the unique identity of Marrakech.

We did this tour on our third day in Marrakech and it was one of our favorite parts! Youssef was a fantastic guide. We really enjoyed our time with him. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Marrakech, Morocco as a whole and different community influences. We were really interested in the Jewish quarter and he was helpful in showing us more of that. We would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to gain further perspective of the city.

Excellent. A complete tour of Marrakech with its unmissable highlights. Hakim was a wonderful guide recounting the ancient and modern history of this beautiful bustling city. He was attentive, available and discreet. We were all charmed. The private car made available to us was comfortable and spacious. We recommend ! Thanks again

Hassan provided a fantastic tour of Marrakech, going above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and had enough time to see every sight. Highly recommend booking this private tour for the personalised touch and ability to see the city at our own pace.
