Itinerary & Notes
Salaam Aleikum! Welcome to Marrakech, a feast for the senses. Your adventure begins today with a welcome meeting at 6 pm – check with hotel reception to confirm the time. If you can't arrange a flight that will arrive in time, you may wish to arrive a day early. We'll be happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability). If you're going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. We'll be collecting your insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so please have these on hand. Dive right in to the spirit of the city (and get to know your fellow travellers) during an evening trip to Djemaa el-Fna, where you'll find vendors peddling traditional delicacies like snail soup. Stroll through the market to find henna painters and street performers among the swirls of smoke rising from food stalls. Enjoy an introductory dinner before returning to the hotel to get some rest in anticipation of tomorrow's bike ride.
