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. You'll be met at the airport by a private car and driven to your centrally located hotel.

  • Today embark on a privately guided tour of the hidden side of Marrakesh, including its fondouks, souqs and the Majorelle Gardens. Late this afternoon, embark on a tasting trail through Marrakesh with your private guide, sampling some of the country's delicious cuisine from stalls and restaurants.

  • You have the day at leisure. We suggest wandering through the souqs to try out your haggling skills, before exploring one of the cafés or restaurants overlooking Djemaa El Fna.

  • Enjoy a historical tour of the city including the intricately decorated 16th-century Saadian Tombs, the Bahia Palace and the Koutoubia Mosque.

  • Leave Marrakesh today and drive to Skoura, via Telouet and the iconic kasbah of Aït Benhaddou. You'll be accompanied by your private driver, who will be able to stop along the way for as many photo stops as you wish.
