Start your tour at Djemma el-Fna Square where at night you will find a hundreds of food stalls, acrobats, snake charmers and gnaoua musicians entertaining the crowds.
Visit the many souqs and medinas of Marrakech and explore the different industries. Mingle with locals selling fresh vegetables, herbs and spices and see the quarters of the carpenters, wood turners and dyers. There’s even a souq des babouches (slippers) and of course leather and jewellery makers. There’s plenty of opportunity along the way to pick up some handicrafts and practice your bartering as you explore.
Finally head to the hamam where you can experience the traditional Moroccan social custom of a weekly steam and scrub. Undress and leave your clothes in a basket and enter the hamam with your attendant. The hamam has 3 rooms: one cool, one hot and one very hot. Spend as long as you can in the hottest room and then retreat slowly into the other chambers. Your hamam attendant will cover your body with sarbon (an olive oil paste) before scrubbing and rinsing you down.
Your local guide will leave you once you've entered the hamam and can provide instructions on how to get back to your hotel or you can continue your shopping in the local souks.
Inclusions: Hamam & gommage (scrub), English speaking guide.
