Arrival to Marrakech
Upon arrival you will be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel. Settle in and unwind by all means, but don’t miss our late afternoon adventure: a horse-and-carriage (calesh) ride to Djemaa el Fna, the “Assembly Place of the Nobodies” and the main square in Marrakesh. There’s always something going on in this square, but it really comes into its own just on sunset. Street hawkers and performers compete for your attention: snake charmers, tooth-extractors, jugglers, musicians, poets, water-sellers, story tellers, acrobats, beggars and thieves – and some (quite literally) with bells on! As are at least 100 food-stall holders, selling grilled meats and other local foods. It’s all yours to enjoy: an overwhelming feast for the senses.
Dinner & Overnight at your hotel.
Marrakech City Tour
We begin our day this morning with a more extensive city tour which will help the whole family come to terms with Morocco’s history. We explore the souks that spread out from the Djemaa el Fna and wend our way through a labyrinth of narrow alleyways looking for hidden treasure! A highlight for many will be the backstreets where the city’s artisans are at work, hammering out the metal lanterns and platters you find on sale throughout the medina. After a short rest back at the hotel, we head out again at 3:30pm, this time to La Maison Arabe (The Arabian House) where you’ll all learn to cook a wonderful Moroccan meal. The best part of this experience will be sitting down to eat all that you have created – entrée, mains and desert.

This fortified town or ‘ksar’ is a world heritage site that has featured in many famous movies – including Gladiator, The Mummy and Prince of Persia. It also features in the TV series, Game of Thrones. All the dwellings within the Ksar are made of mud and rise from the surrounding landscape like a fantastic, oversized sand-castle. It truly is an extraordinary ensemble of buildings that showcase the full gamut of pre-Saharan construction techniques.
