Calèches in Marrakech

Calèches in Marrakech are horse-drawn carriages that hold four to five people. They are a great way to reach your dinner destination or have a relaxing tour of the town. Young children love them, and older children are just embarrassed, if you know what we mean. They are also ideal to visiting the Majorelle gardens or the Menara and Agdal gardens.

Beware, and always agree on a price before you start your ride. In general it costs about 120-180 dhs per ride. Trips to the Palmerie and around the ramparts might cost 200-300 Dhs. The actual price to Moroccans is always lower, but life is too short to try and expect the bargain of the century in Marrakesh. The main pick-up stop is in the medina, along the left side of the street stretching from the Djemâa el Fna to the Koutoubia Mosque.
