Travel Diary: Marrakech
An extra-sensory journey through Morocco’s bustling imperial city
Since it was my first trip to Marrakech and there was a bit of a time crunch—I had just 48 hours to see the city—I decided to enlist the help of Black Tomato, a luxury travel company that curates unique itineraries in destinations around the world. They suggested a sidecar motorbike tour, which, as it turns out, ended up being the unexpected highlight of my trip. It gives you an immersive sense of the sights, sounds and smells of a place—things you miss out on when you’re sitting in the backseat of a car.
