Itinerary & Notes
Salaam Aleikum! Welcome to Morocco. Marrakech is a feast for the senses, a world of spice markets, Berber music, carpets, delectable foods, acrobats and perfumed gardens. You can arrive at any time today as there are no activities planned until your group meeting at 6pm. If you have an arrival transfer booked, please look for a representative with an Intrepid Travel sign when you arrive at the airport. Your hotel is located just outside the city walls around the old Medina. It is about a 30-minute walk to the main square, Djemaa el Fna (or a short calesh/taxi ride). It's also near a lot of local shops and restaurants. Settle in and relax.

Our guide Hicham could not have been more attentive. He was extremely helpful when my daughter was unwell and also when organising a transfer to the airport. He checked all arrangements in advance. He had an excellent rapport with local guides. He had a wide knowledge of the country, customs, politics, policy which enriched our learning on the trip. He took good care of all the guests. The tour was very varied and interesting giving us an insight into the country. It was also made interesting by the dynamics and experiences of the group members. That aspect was extremely successful and one of the main ingredients to this successful holiday.
