Day 1

Arrival at Marrakech Airport

After passing the customs you will meet our driver in the hall of the airport. He will bring you to the old medina. Because your Riad hotel is situated in a small alley, you have to walk the last bit. For your luggage, you can use the services of a “charriot” – a small independent who could use your generosity. 20 to 50 Dirham is usual for this purpose. (For 1 Euro you get about 11 dirhams). Don’t you have the change, you can buy a bottle water on your way to the hotel; which you need anyway. In almost every grocery-shop in the souks, you can buy a bottle of 1.5ltr mineral water for 6 to 10 Dirham.

Upon arrival you will explore the Jemaa el Fna square for sure.

Day 2

Visit Marrakech

Today you have plenty of time to go out. In this dream weekend you can choose for a walk through the souks with a local guide. But it is also possible to explore the city yourself. Our walking guide through the old town is a good guideline.It also helps you to deal with the shop owners in a happy and funny way. You can have a lot of fun with them if you know that you are never required in any situation to buy from them. Even if you have accepted a glass of tea. If you prefer a cooking workshop, you can prepare your own lunch (start at 10am) of dinner (start at 3pm). You will meet Fatima or Saida at the market to buy the ingredients. This alone is already an experience.

Day 3

Visit Marrakech or the Atlas Mountains

Today you have all the time to wander through the city as well. Optionally, you can also cycle along the gardens in Marrakech. And if you like to see something more than just Marrakech, we recommend a day trip to the Atlas Mountains. When you drive out of the city, you will see a different (mountain) world; with beautiful colored mountains, small Berber villages and hospitable and friendly people. You will take a walk with a local guide and enjoy a lunch ‘with a view.
