What's included in this trip
Moroccan Spice SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Walk through Marrakech’s old town with a local guide. Stroll through the souqs and learn about the market, stop for Moroccan sweets and coffee and pick up a unique memento. In the evening, watch Djemaa el-Fna come to life with snake charmers, dancers, jugglers and musicians. The next day, pick up some local lingo at an Arabic lesson before visiting a market to buy fresh produce to use in a Moroccan cooking class.
Visit the medieval, walled port of Essaouira. This laidback artists' town was once a Portuguese trading colony and was also home to British and Jewish populations. Explore on foot and by bicycle to discover galleries, shops and ornate buildings. Visit the nearby village of Diabat and perhaps try windsurfing or kitesurfing.
Leave the coast behind and return to the busy streets of Marrakech.
