W hile the city of Marrakech offers a wide array of experiences, there are some adventures that truly come to life when shared with others if you’re considering group tours to Morocco.

Group trips to Morocco offer a unique tapestry of shared laughter, collective discoveries, and memories that are cherished more deeply because they are experienced together. It’s about navigating narrow alleyways in the bustling medina, shared sips of mint tea under a sunlit sky, and collective gasps of awe as the city reveals its secrets.

At the heart of this group adventure, subtly nestled just a stroll away from the Jemaa El Fna square, is Riad Alkemia. Since its doors opened, we’ve had the honor of welcoming groups from every corner of the globe. As an exclusively private riad, we promise a unique sanctuary where you and your companions can indulge in an authentic Moroccan stay in unmatched seclusion and comfort.

Let’s embark on a journey through the top group activities that can make your Marrakech trip truly unforgettable.

1. Traditional Moroccan cooking classes

The heart of Moroccan culture lies in its cuisine, and there’s no better way to embrace it than by taking a traditional Moroccan cooking class. As the tantalizing aromas of cumin and coriander fill the air, you and your group can bond over creating traditional Moroccan food like tagines. couscous and different kinds of Moroccan salads.

The beauty of it all? At Riad Alkemia, these classes are held by our local chef, Bouchra, allowing you to craft and then savor these delicious homemade Moroccan food recipes in the comfort of the riad. And for our younger guests, these classes are not only suitable but an absolute delight.

2. Guided tours of the medina

Marrakech’s medina is a labyrinth of history, culture, and endless discovery. But navigating its bustling streets can be quite the adventure. This is where guided tours in Marrakech come in, offering an insightful journey through the city’s hidden gems and historical sites like Bahia Palace, Dar El Bacha and the Medersa Ben Youssef, that hide stories that are worth telling.

We recommend that you arrange tailored tours with certified local guides in Marrakech that take into account the dynamics of your group, ensuring that everyone can enjoy the enchanting stories of the medina together.

3. Visit to a traditional hammam

Among the many group activities there is one that will be perfect to share among friends: it’s the hammam. If you’re wondering what is a Moroccan hammam, picture an ancient ritual, a sanctuary of relaxation, where warm steam bathes the skin, paving the way for invigorating scrubs and massages by a professional.

A Moroccan hammam is a traditional bathhouse, a place deeply rooted in the culture, where locals have gathered for centuries to cleanse, rejuvenate, and connect. The experience is akin to a spa treatment but with a touch of history and tradition.

At Riad Alkemia, we take this authentic experience a notch higher. Here, within our riad’s secluded walls, you and your group can indulge in the serene rituals of our traditional Moroccan hammam, all in the comfort and privacy of your exclusive retreat. It’s an immersion into tradition, relaxation, and collective rejuvenation.

4. Evenings in Marrakech

After a day spent exploring the city, among the activities to relax and at the same time liven up the evening, the city offers, among other opportunities, concerts of traditional music, with belly dancing performances.

If you then want to return to the comfort of your own riad, to enjoy the last hours of the day, in total relaxation, Riad Alkemia is no exception. The riad comes to life in the evening with some proposals: storytelling sessions that transport you back in time, live musical performances that stir the soul, and the warm ambiance of the candle-lit rooftop under the starry skies, with a belly dancer who sinuously moves to the rhythm of the music.

Imagine you and your travel buddies on the riad’s rooftop terrace sharing meaningful conversations while indulging in a tasty dinner as your laughter echoes through the space.

5. Take a hot air balloon ride over Marrakech

Lastly, for the ultimate group adventure, consider rising above the bustling cityscape on a hot air balloon ride at dawn. As the sun kisses the horizon rising over the city, you and your group can ascend over Marrakech, witnessing its breathtaking transformation from dark to light. The views are nothing short of magical, and the experience of floating above Marrakech is a memory that will stay with you and your friends and family forever.
