MEDINA AND MOUNTAINS ITINERARY

**Day 1**

Arrival at your accommodation in Marrakech. Enjoy your day, soaking up the sun at your leisure be it on the terrace with a glass of tea, or in the markets followed by a strong nos-nos (a.k.a best coffee in the world).

**Day 2**

Departing at 10am from your accommodation - have a fact-filled morning with your own guide of the Marrakech Medina. During the tour, you will visit Jemaa el-Fna, a UNESCO world heritage site for its oral tradition and the BIGGEST SQUARE IN AFRICA. Encountering snake charmers, Gnaoua musicians and acrobats all in one go, it is an unforgettable sensory overload. You will also wander over to Palais Bahia, built in the late 19th century,  Badi Palace, once a lavish, grand sixteenth century complex of buildings, today the whole complex lies in ruins You will also experience the ancient and only recently discovered Saadian Tombs.

Marrakech is famous for its markets (souqs) - enter into its daily hustle and bustle. Shop for local handicrafts and souvenirs as you explore the souk and practice your bargaining skills. Towards the Northern medina there is the spectacular Medersa Ben-Youssef, once the largest Koranic college in North Africa, whose building has now been restored and reopened to the public as a historical site. Discover Mnebhi Palace now home to Musée de Marrakech. With its wonderful ceramics, jewels, arms, costumes, calligraphy and collection of Judaica it reflects the true diversity of the city.

You will have a free afternoon and evening in the city. 

**Day 3** - OURIKA VALLEY

Departure at 8.30am

Departing Marrakech at approximately 9am from your hostel, Ourika Valley is only 1 hour away and could not be more different from the craziness and noise of the city.

You will wind through the mountains which protect the valley, passing an amazing array of Berber villages and Kasbahs, marvelling at the river that runs through the middle. You will visit a Berber house, sampling the lifestyle of Berber people before visiting a Berber spice centre. Eventually , you will reach the village of Setti Fatma where you can climb the 6 beautiful waterfalls.

Lunch is taken in one of the many Tagine cafes on the water. It is a delicious conclusion to a colourful day before returning back to Marrakech

**DAY 4**

Departure at 10am.

With no time to go to the Sahara Desert but still desperate to somehow ride a camel. You can still do it! 

A great experience for the time-restricted traveller in Marrakech without going to the Sahara Desert. We take you from your accommodation by minibus. You meet the camel leaders and their camels. The adventure is based in the strangely arid landscape of La Palmeraie just North of Marrakech. With over 150,000 palm trees, you will feel as though you are in a desert oasis. A peaceful yet still exhilarating experience.

DAY 5

Maybe you have booked to stay further nights to enjoy the city, or maybe it is time to say bye-bye. Come back someday!
