Afternoon guided tour of Marrakech. Discover the wonders of this great imperial capital, centuries old, wrapped in mystery and considered by many the most fascinating city in North Africa. Marrakech was founded at the crossroads of ancient caravan routes, as an entrepot for slaves, gold and ivory transported across the Sahara from the great desert port of Timbuktu. Step back in time as you visit the 12th century Koutoubia Mosque, the Dar Si Said Museum and Bahia Palace, a beautiful example of domestic architecture. Walk through the labyrinthine alleys of the souk area with its quarters for dyers, herbalists, jewellers and many more. End your sightseeing at Jemaa El Fna Square, a virtual open-air circus with its story tellers, fire eaters, snake charmers, acrobats and jugglers. Enjoy mint tea or soft drinks on a terrace overlooking the square as dusk approaches, before returning to your hotel.
