There you will have enough time to explore the gorge, from its plunging depths to dizzying heights.

Meet your guide and driver at the lobby of the hotel for an explorative guided city tour of Marrakech, a journey full of heritage, culture, and history.

Explore the red city, founded in the 11th century by the Almoravid Sultan Youssef Ben Tachafine, Marrakesh becomes the capital of the Kingdom; it is enriched with great constructions before knowing, under the Alawites, a more secondary role. Called "the Red City" or "the Pearl of the South", Marrakech is a fascinating city.

It enchants visitors with its contrasting colors: the ocher earth color of its homes, the green of the palm grove, and the white snow-capped mountains of the Atlas, as well as its remarkable world heritage monuments and huge shady gardens. Berbers and Arabs meet here, the nomads and mountaineers converge here, the goods are overflowing, and the craftsmanship shines, below palaces, casinos, hotels, and gulfs; which makes it an essential complement to a stay of great quality. Marrakech is indeed the capital of southern Morocco!

Visit the main monuments of the city: the gardens of Majorelle, the Saadian tombs, the Bahia Palace, the Badia Palace, the souks, and the medina. Then, enjoy a cup of mint tea on a terrace overlooking the live square and the beaten heart of Marrakech; JemaaLafna Square where your Marrakech city tour will end.
