OVERVIEW

Marrakech City Guided Tour

Marrakech City Guided Tour it is your opportunity to learn about  the second oldest imperial city  in Morocco, Marrakech was founded in the 10th century  by Sultan Youssef ben Tachfine who is credited with construction of the defensive walls that encircle the city. Extended to 19 kms during the dynasties of the Almohades and Saadiens, the spectacular city walls, varying in color between pink and red, are punctuated by 200 square towers and nine monumental gates. The prosperity of Marrakech at this time made it a fitting capital for an empire which stretched from Algiers to the Atlantic and from the Mediterranean almost to Senegal.Following 4 centuries of the Berber dynasties emanating from the indigenous tribes of the Atlas Mountains (the Almoravides, Almohades and Merinides, who ruled until 1465), the 16 th century saw the arrival of rulers of Arabic origin. The wealthy Saadiens (1554-1603) were responsible for unifying Morocco as one country. In 1659 the Alouites came to the throne (occupied from 1672-1727 by Moulay Ismail, the most famous of all the sultans) and still rule Morocco today.

Jemaa Fna square: It is a UNESCO site and one of the famous squares in the world. Wandering with your guide, you will see many story tellers, snake charmers, musicians and water tellers mostly in the morning. In the afternoon, the square gets full with food stalls with different kind of Moroccan food. Around the sunset, we suggest that you go for a drink in one of the Cafe terraces overlooking the Jemaa Fna square that gets illuminated by the lamplights and panels with the number or names of stall owners.
