Desert Agafay and Atlas Mountains & Camel ride Day Trip From Marrakech

1,898 reviews
Morocco’s Agafay desert lies within day-trip distance of Marrakech, making it an easy alternative to visiting the Sahara Desert further south. With this private tour, save the hassle of an independent trip and combine the Agafay with a journey into the Atlas Mountains. Explore Berber villages and souks; cross the Kik Plateau, and finish with a camel trek in the Agafay before returning.

First, please note that the contents of the museum may be different to your guide book - it has changed to focus more on Moroccan carpets and the like. But it is well worth a visit, with a range of artifacts which help you understand and appreciate this amazing country. The courtyard is a wonderful haven of peace, and the decor of the building is worth the admission fee in itself. It was not crowded when we visited; I suspect that's because it's hard to find! But compared to the crowds which can spoil the Bahia, that's a plus point. If you need help finding the Dar Si Said, try this which worked for us: Face the entrance to the Bahia Palace (easy to find), and turn left (north) up the Rue Riad Zitoun El Jedid. The second alley on the right should still have a sign for the Dar Si Said - head up there and a left turn will take you there. The entrance is then easily found at a corner which turns left again and quickly right to lead you back to Zitoun El Jedid, and towards the Jemaa El Fna if you wish. Good luck!

This tranquil place is less visited than others in Marrakech because it is not well signposted. It is a stunning building inside with a beautiful courtyard with the usual fountains and tiling. However the art work by French painters is well worth the visit. Some interesting display cabinets with silver work and inticate wooden boxes. Didn't eat in the rooftop cafe but it looked clean and cared for.

This is near to and a cousin of the Bahia Palace. It's similar, but a bit smaller. You get to see some upstairs rooms here though, and they are really impressive. Also a couple of tranquil courtyards. 70Dh to get in. Look out for signs to it painted on walls in the surrounding alleyways.

This is a rather new museum located in a 1600's merchant's home not far from the Marrakesh Museum or Dar M'Nebhi. Ask for directions at the Marrakesh museum and there are also signs. It's a real gem in that it's 2 floors plus comfortable roof top snack bar with lovely views of the city. There are paintings by lesser known French artists who traveled here in the 1800's. And there are interesting objects like silver daggers and wooden boxes that held kohl. Have lunch nearby at the Le Trou Au Mur.
