In the afternoon, we will go on a camel ride to reach the camp, while enjoying a sunset that will probably remain in your memory as one of the best natural spectacles you have ever witnessed.

Traditional Berber dinner at the camp to the rhythm of drums under the moon and the stars, surrounded by dunes and accompanied by a fire.
This will certainly be a magical night!

Day 5 – Merzouga – Todra Gorges – Dades Valley

We will make a stop to visit their gorges perched at 1350 m altitude and surrounded by a palm grove, until you reach the city of Boumalne, where the other gorges called Dades were formed. A beautiful journey through valleys, Berber villages, kabashs and a landscape of contrasts between palm trees and vegetation.

Haddou – Port of Tichka (2260m) – Marrakech
After breakfast, and once past the Valley of the Roses and the city of Ouarzazate, located on a large plateau, we will go inside to visit one of the best Ksurs – not to say the best – preserved in Morocco: Ait Ben Haddou, a fortress village built in adobe, scene of many films and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Continuation of the route through the High Atlas, crossing the Port of Tichka (2260 m) surrounded by impressive mountains. Arrival in Marrakech and transfer to the Riad.
Free time to enjoy the magical atmosphere of the city.
Free visit at your own pace of the DJemaa el Fna Square and the medina, the heart of the city. A unique experience, where all the life and the night activity is concentrated: dancers, storytellers, jugglers, craftsmen, merchants and snake charmers. From the terraces of some cafes you can get a wide panoramic view of the city: mosques and minarets, palaces and gardens, souks and bazaars.
DJEMAA EL-FNA SQUARE
This square is the main one of the city and during the whole day it attracts tourists and locals alike, who go while the sun is shining to visit the orange juice and water stalls, as well as snake charmers, women who paint with henna or boys with monkeys.
In the evening the atmosphere changes and you can see dancers, musicians and minstrels, who fill the place completely, and provide an atmosphere of drums and fun.

We recommend sitting down in one of the surrounding cafes to enjoy the atmosphere or to go to dinner at one of the more than 100 stands that are set up at this time and with different types of Moroccan food.

Day 7 – Marrakech – Visit with local guide

In the morning, at the appointed time, the guide will pick you up at your accommodation and the cultural visit of the most emblematic and tourist places of the city will start.
The visit of the monuments and tourist places will be made on foot in the places and accompanied by an official guide of the Spanish speaking city.
The guided tour includes the visit of:
THE KOUTOUBIA, one of the wonders of the Almohad art that is located in the center of the city, where in the past there was a stone palace called “Ksar AL HAJJAR”.
BAHIA PALACE, built in the 19th century as the sultan’s residence. Bahia means brilliant, in fact in the 19th century the Moroccans thought they had built the greatest palace of all times. To get there, we will go through the Kasbah market, the Jewish Quarter (El malah), the Souk of the Species and Badia Square.
THE SAADI TOMBS, one of the most visited places in Marrakech. These tombs date from the late sixteenth century and are located in an enclosed garden which is accessed through a small corridor. Past the threshold, we find mausoleums of great beauty, decorated with mosaics, and different tombs that keep buried sultans, warriors and servants of the Saadian dynasty.
In this tour, we will enter the ZOCO and visit the MADRASSE OF BEN YOUSSEF, built in the sixteenth century was one of the most important Koranic schools. In it, its students lived in austere cells while finishing their religious studies. The most beautiful part of the visit is the inner courtyard with its architecture and mosaics, in harmony with the central pond used to perform ablutions before prayer. Here visitors will find extreme tranquility, after having passed through the bustle of the streets of the Medina.
JARDIN MAJORELLE, this garden was built by the painter Jacques Majorelle and therefore he created it as he would create a work of art. As a curiosity, today the color “bleu Majorelle” is often spoken of in honor of the blue used in most of the walls and details of the garden. In the 80’s the mythical couturier Yves Saint-Laurent acquired it and increased the number of plant species to more than 300. It became his favorite corner, whose ashes he wanted to spread among bamboos and water lilies.
And finally the PLAZA DJEMAA EL FNA , which is the central square of Marrakech and the most important place in the medina. It develops the public life of Marrakech both day and night. The best thing about DJemaa el Fna Square is the transformation it undergoes over the course of the day.

Free afternoon to continue enjoying the magical atmosphere of Marrakech
