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.
