Morocco Hammam Tour
Moroccan Hammam is a public steam room where Moroccan go to clean themselves. Baths are separated by gender and many locals will spend hours there chatting with friends. Now this ancient practice of rejuvenation has become a special and unique experience for foreigners. It is often seen on many “must-do-lists” for tourists.
People coming to Hamman are generally asked to take off all their clothes except covering the private areas. After 10-15 minutes in the heat and moisture, your skin has softened enough for exfoliation. If you want, the attendant will come with kese, the special mitten used to scrub off the dead cells of your skin. Then you can continue your showering and shampooing. After it, you will feel so refreshed and relaxing.
There is a wide range of Hammams in Moroccan cities. Most hammams offered to tourists are more spa-like hammams which do not differ that much from spas elsewhere in the world. Our hammam tour will bring you to a neighbourhood hammam that will let you experience an authentic Moroccan hammam.
Total duration of the tour is approximately 2 hours. It can be booked as a Hammam tour only or part of longer tour packages. Contact us for more details.
