Nestled in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, Marrakech is a lively city bursting with vendors, locals and tourists. One of the great things about staying in Marrakech is the ease of getting to other destinations within Morocco. Marrakech has an abundance of accommodation options and dining choices to suite all budgets making it a great home base for your exploration. It’s easy to stay within the city and venture out to experience more of Morocco each day. But where to go? Below I share our family friendly day trips from Marrakech.
We took two private full-day tours during our visit to Marrakech. The first was to the port city of Essaouira and another was to the Atlas Mountains. I highly recommend both tours, but I would change up the Atlas Mountains trip to see the famous Ouzoud waterfalls.
