side trip or tour recommendations in Marrakesh

We will be in Marrakesh for only 4 days in July. Are there any short side trips or tours that any one recommends?

1. Re: side trip or tour recommendations in Marrakesh

Hi,

In such a short visit I'd suggest only one day trip out of town (the rest of the time should be spent enjoying Marrakech!)

My favourite is a trip to Ouirgane, lunch at Chez Momo after a 2 hour trek through Berber villages with a guide arranged by Momo then a drive back over the Plateau de Kik.

You can do this with a grand taxi quite easily or your hotel or Riad will be able to offer help organising things.

Ouirgane is a definite favourite but the Ourika valley is also popular (if very touristy), and Imlil and the waterfalls at Ouzoud are two other venues which attract visitors. A tour of the monuments in Marrakech will occupy a half day, goddesstravel...,and the gardens are well worth seeing too. Welcome to the Marrakech forum.

Essaoiura was a great one day trip and the medina there is a UNESCO world heritage site. Definitely suggest going to Majorelle Gardens while in Marrakesh. There is a tour that goes to Ait Ben Haddou in the high Atlas Mountains but I'm not sure how much time you get there as it is a ways from Marrakesh.
