Spices, Marrakech, Morocco


Colourful and cosmopolitan Marrakech has an authentic Moroccan feel. This is a city steeped in rich history and where ancient culture is still very much in evidence today.

Reached in just over three hours and with a number of airlines offering direct flights, there are not many places one can reach so easily yet feel so immediately immersed in another exciting and vibrant culture.

It is also incredibly easy to combine a visit to Marrakech with stays in the Atlas Mountains and on the Atlantic coast, both of which are located within a short drive.

Guided experiences of Marrakech

To make the most out of your visit to Marrakech, we highly recommend exploring the city in the company of one of our excellent English speaking guides. Depending on your interests we will match the right guide to you.

Discover intricate buildings and architectural wonders that tell their own stories while, in the evenings, acrobats and storytellers gather at Djemma El Fna Square – a scene best viewed from one of many terraced coffee shops overlooking the square.

Marrakech has a range of fascinating monuments and sites, the Koutoubia Mosque, El Bahia Palace, the Dar Si Said Folk Art Museum and the 14th-century Ben Youssef Medersa, an ancient university with exquisite Arab architecture to name a few. Of course, no trip to Marrakech would be complete with a visit to the souq, a mecca for those who love to haggle.

My travels were first inspired by my love of the UK, which I take as much pleasure in exploring as countries far and wide. For me, travel is all about the adventure, the people I meet and the food I sample along the way.
