Getting around Marrakech

On Foot

Without a doubt, the best way to get around Marrakech is by foot. Nothing connects you more with a city than walking through its streets and experiencing the culture first-hand. Some of the best attractions in Marrakech are also pedestrian-only zones, so sometimes you don’t even have a choice.

 Definitely consider having a local private guide with you to avoid getting lost! Walking will give you the most unique experience of Marrakech, guaranteed.

 

By Bus

There are public bus services in Marrakech, however, it’s important to know that they can sometimes be confusing and unreliable. The buses are usually late, but if you’re in no hurry they’re usually a good way to see the city. Most buses stop at Jemaa el Fna, the central square of the city and one of the top attractions in Marrakech, so you’ll get down right in the center of the city.

 

 Calèche

Travel back in time and experience one of the most unique ways of travel in Marrakech! It’s simply one of the most picturesque, romantic and fun ways of getting around and it’s actually fairly convenient! The calèches are horse-drawn carriages that can fit up to six people at the same time and they can take you to the most important attractions. Imagine showing up in front of an extravagant palace on your horse-drawn carriage as the sounds of the city echo in the background….Yes please!

 

Taxis

The thing about taxis is that, even though they are convenient, they’re not the best way to travel in Marrakech. There are two types of taxis: the petit and the grand taxis. A lot of taxi drivers charge a lot higher than the normal fares, and it takes a lot of haggling to get the price down.

 

Bikes

Hiring a bicycle, a motorbike or a vespa gives you an incredible experience when it comes to travel in Marrakech. It’s considered one of the most authentic ways of exploring the city, and you’ll blend right in with the thousands of whizzing bikes that zip their way through the snaking alleys of the souks.

Best of Marrakech: Highlights and Hidden Gems tour

Yesterday we booked a tour to discover Marrakesch with Khalil and we had an amazing time! Khalil was very friendly and made us feel at our ease right away! During the tour he gives interesting information about the architecture, history and culture of Marrakech. The tour itself existed of both the must sees of Marrakech, such as the Bahia palace and the jewish quarter, as well as hidden gems that we would never have discovered on our own. We also had the chance to “taste” a bit of the culture by visiting a local bakery and trying their delicious bread and through a cup of mint tea while enjoying the view of Marrakech on the rooftop terrace. For us it was the best way to get to know the city as it is our frist trip to Marrakech and we would definitely recommend Khalil to everyone back home! Thanks again Khalil for making us feel welcome in Marrakech!
