Day 1 : Marrakech airport to the desert of Agafay

Upon arrival at Marrakesh airport, meet and great by your professional tour guide and go for a short trip of approximately one hour to the Desert of Agafay. This stone desert is different from the Sahara Desert but will still give you the opportunity to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Upon arrival at the camp, you will settle in with a warm welcoming dinner and overnight in a traditional tent under the stars.

Day 2 : The desert of Agafay and the Atlas mountains to Marrakech

The adventure by chauffeur-driven 4x4 cars will take you into the Atlas Mountains where we see a vast array of vegetation, coloured rock cliffs, mountain streams, Berber villages, and local mountain people. Stop on the way for a glass of mint tea at a Berber home. You will continue the trip across to Imlil, with its fabulous hillside views overlooking local villages. Your adventure continues on to the village of Imlil and a wonderful lunch at Kasbah du Toubkal on the outdoor terrace, facing the second highest mountain in North Africa, Jbel Toubkal.
After lunch, drive to Marrakech.
Dinner and overnight at the hotel.

Day 3 : Marrakech and the palm grove

Our special half-day guided tour will begin with a visit of the lush botanical Majorelle Gardens, which are privately owned by Yves St. Laurent. Here we stop for a stroll. Afterwards we drive to the old medina of Marrakech and begin with a walk through one of the most interesting quarters of Marrakech. Here we'll stroll along labyrinthine alleyways, catching glimpses of mosques, hammams, traditional public bakeries, fondouks (old lodging houses used by the caravans). We will visit the principle attractions, beginning with the 14th century Ben Youssef Medrassa which used to be a koranic school and is noted for its extraordinary latticework interior decor and the nearby 19th century Menebhi palace, owned by a Moroccan vizier and built in the pure Moroccan urban style of architecture of the period. We continue on foot through the colourful souks which are organized according to goods sold and where craftsmen can be seen practicing their traditional handwork. After a stroll through this maze of narrow streets, we emerge onto the famous Jemaa el Fna Square, where throughout the ages local people and African caravans have gathered for entertainment, celebrations, gossip and business.
Lunch at leisure
After lunch, enjoy a 1 hour guided camel ride and 2 hours quad biking around the palm grove of Marrakech, including a stop at a local home for tea. It is a fabulous way to see the countryside.
