Days 1-2 Marrakech

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.
