What you can expect

Let me guide you off the beaten track in Marrakech and discover the city as a true local!

During this tour, you'll learn everything about the traditional culture of Marrakech which is shaped through art and music. Of course I'll also tell you about modern day life in the city.

We'll kick-off our route by visiting a craftman who still makes the traditional guembri instrument by hand. Afterwards, we'll go to a small & cosy concert of Gnaoua music, the traditional & spiritual music genre of Morocco. Here you'll see live how the artists play the Guembri guitar!

The music won't stop after this though! We'll also enjoy a small performance by 'Deka Marrakchia'. These are traditional bands which are often performing at weddings - so they know how to throw a party! :)

After our musical break, we'll move on towards the Opera theater. This building is truly stunning and I will tell you all about it!
Our final stop will be at a cultural cafe where we will visit an exhibition by a contemporary Moroccan artist.

If you'd wish to visit even different craftmans or change something to the tour, please feel free to contact me!
