Itinerary idea in detail

Includes international flights from a choice of UK airports, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Marrakesh. Upon arrival at Marrakesh Airport, you'll be met by a private car and transferred to your hotel. The short drive passes the main train station, through the modern city, and into the heart of the ancient medina, where your riad hides in the maze of souqs. On arrival, you'll be greeted with a mint tea. A fast-track service is included at Marrakesh Airport to avoid any long queues on your arrival. The evening will be at your leisure to relax in your new surroundings at Riad Ilayka.

  • Today, your private guide leads you around the city, teaching you about its history and culture. You visit the beautifully mosaicked Saadian Tombs, where the bodies of sultans and their families have rested for centuries, the Bahia Palace and the 15th-century Mellah (Jewish Quarter). This afternoon, your guide takes you into the different quarters of the souq to see craftsmen working on their various trades. It provides valuable insight into the skilled work that goes into making the products you barter for.

  • Today you can explore Marrakesh independently, perhaps revisiting the souqs to barter for any goods that caught your eye on previous visits. We suggest taking time to visit the tranquil Majorelle Gardens, which provide a welcome contrast to the bustle of the medina. Here, you can stroll among cacti, bamboo and gurgling streams and visit the Amazigh Museum, which has a collection of items that once belonged to Amazigh tribes. This evening, head to the lively Djemaa El Fna to watch dancers perform for the crowds and sample some of Marrakesh's delicious and often unusual street food.

  • Today, your private driver will take you up into the Atlas Mountains, where you'll spend the day in a local Amazigh village with a guide. There, you'll share lunch and a mint tea with an Amazigh family and spend time learning about their way of life. We recommend visiting the Assafou Foundation, which provides free education to children living in these rural communities. Here you can see the school where the children are taught and where local women learn skills such as weaving so that they can sell their handicrafts at local markets or in Marrakesh's souqs.

  • After breakfast, your private driver will collect you and take you to Marrakesh Airport for your onward flight. Your return flight will arrive the same day.
