City Tour "Marrakesh By Caleche"

We are arranging a caleche ride at 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 16. The trip is an excellent way to move around Marrakech and see some of the most intriguing locations both inside and beyond the old city walls. The old tanneries and Majorelle Gardens are particularly interesting, but if you have a preference, you can change the itinerary by simply telling your guide what you'd like to visit. We will meet in front of the Koutoubia Mosque at 7.45 p.m., where the charming horse-drawn carriages will be waiting. The participation fee is 25 euros.

Further details will follow shortly.
