Getaway: Mazelike alleys and Thriving souks
Marrakech is a magical city, exotic, full of history, and overwhelming; it is the most famous and visited city in Morocco. This trip will enable you to discover all that beautiful Marrakech has to offer.
Known as the Red city mainly because of the predominant color of its buildings, it has been Morocco's capital in the past represents the most important Imperial city and boasts a perfect location right at the foot of the High Atlas mountains. It has a memorable beauty, with its palm-lined streets and red earth walls, surrounding a huge medina of flat-roofed, red houses. Marrakech is divided into the large historic city, the medina, and the Ville Nouvelle.
The focal point of the medina and probably of the whole city is Jemaa el Fna square: an open place located in the middle of the Medina, full of snake charmers, storytellers, Henna artists, street entertainers, and food sellers. You will be overwhelmed by the smells, sounds, and sights.
The main attractions of the Red City include a walk in the neighborhood of the square, a visit of the Souks, and the city’s main and popular mosque the Koutoubia, the Medersa Ben Youssef, Bahia Palace, Saadian Tombs (visiting them depends on their status at the time of your travel). Another popular feature of a visit to Marrakech is a tour of the gardens, like Jardin Majorelle and the Menara.

Put the luggage in the vehicle and drive to your accommodation. Check-in and relax at your luxury Riad enjoying. Please make sure you take the best of it from the spacious rooms to the finest spa treatments and wellness to make your stay special and exclusive.
Depending on your arrival time, you can surely enjoy the afternoon exploring the new city at your own leisure; most of our travelers find it easy to navigate on their own and visit the Jardin Majorelle taking a local taxi; not like the old Medina which is like a maze. The Jardin Majorelle is the creation of French painter Jacques Majorelle, who spent 40 years injecting his passion and creativity into this magical garden. Complete with enchanting little lanes, tranquil streams, and over 300 species of stunning plants, Jardin Majorelle is perfect for those who need a break from the busy city.
By the evening time, we strongly recommend a visit to the amazing hectic Jemaa El Fna which comes alive after dark. You will experience a memorable mix of smells, sounds, and sights. For dinner, why not try one of the outdoor food stalls which offer a variety of food, and for the most adventurous, you can try the snails or the cooked sheep head.

Cooking class - Medina visit - Traditional Hammam
This morning after breakfast, you are joining a cooking class workshop that is conducted by a dada (traditional Moroccan cook) or a chef to take inside the Moroccan cuisine and its flavors. In a small group of participants, you work alongside your chef or dada (a translator (Arabic/English/French will be arranged if necessary), using easy-to-use equipment found in the everyday kitchen. At the end of your workshop, you sit and enjoy the meal you have prepared. During this typical activity, you learn to prepare an appetizer and a main dish, or a main dish and dessert.
By the time you finished your cooking class and enjoyed your meal, your local guide is coming to meet you to enter the old medina together where you continue on foot to discover historical palaces, museums, and Koranic schools. Visit the Bahia Palace, Saadian Tombs, Koutoubia Mosque (from outside) and explore the famous souks. This 3 hours walking tour in the Medina will be done on foot since most of the medina is closed to traffic.
In the evening, you should be back at your riad for yet another amazing local experience but very exclusive and deluxe to make your stay even more special in Morocco and in Marrakech specifically. The soon you are back to your Riad, you can quickly get to your room and be ready for a tradition Hammam or what we locally call "Beldi Hammam" where you allow your body to receive the best treatment from the local hands of your host! You just set back and enjoy, feel, and dream while you take the best and unique experience back home.
You can surely decide whether to have dinner in your riad or elsewhere because there are many choices to choose from when it comes to local authentic restaurants. But, we recommend that you extend your exciting stay by having dinner at your riad especially that your body would still need to relax after the beautiful Hammam you just had.
