“To see once is worth more than hearing a hundred times”
 
Tour Itinerary:
  • Casablanca to Rabat Morocco Tour
    Day 1: Tour Casablanca to Rabat Tour Morocco with an ultimate journey that begins with a welcome by your private driver upon arrival at Airport Mohamed V in Casablanca. He will meet you after you exit customs/baggage claim and then take you for highlights as you tour Casablanca. The commercial capital of Morocco, Casablanca’s modern attitude and big-city edge make it the most cosmopolitan of all Moroccan cities. Admire the majestic Hassan II Mosque, the largest mosque outside of Mecca and the third largest religious monument in the world. Dramatically perched over the Atlantic Ocean, it is a gem of religious architecture, subtly mixing Moroccan tradition with state-of-the-art technology. Then depart for Rabat, Morocco’s present-day capital and principal royal residence. Spend the afternoon exploring the city’s rich and varied sights; including 12th century ruins of the Kasbah (citadel), the magnificent 20th century Mausoleum of King Mohamed V, and the Royal Gardens of His Majesty King Hassan II.

    Overnight: Villa Mandarine
    Included: Breakfast
    Dinner can be arranged up on your request.

  • Rabat to Meknes to Volubilis to Fez
    Day 2: Rabat to Meknes to Volubilis to Fez Tour After breakfast, continue your tour of Morocco as you depart to Meknes, “the Moroccan Versailles” which was founded at the end of the 17th Century by Moulay Ismail, where the Jewish presence is evidenced by Hebraic epitaphs dating from the Christian era as well as Greek inscriptions that still appear in local Synagogues and a place of pilgrimage where the tomb of Rabbi’ David Benmidan, “The Patron of Meknes” is located. Highlights will also include Bab El Mansour, the Hedim square and the mosque of Moulay Ismail. Continue toward the holy city of Moulay Idriss, a small-whitewashed town where the first Arab dynasty was founded in 787 AD. Scenically nestled in a fold of the Rif Mountains and named after the great-grandson of the prophet Mohamed, the town was forbidden to non-Muslims until 1916.

    Just beyond Moulay Idriss lies the ancient city of Volubilis. A thriving Roman settlement until the 4th century, the ruins and mosaics of Volubilis are near-perfectly preserved, providing a clear window into Roman urban planning and design. Arrive Fez as evening sets. Dinner on own; please consult your driver for recommendations and reservations.

    Overnight: Riad Fes
    Included: Breakfast
    We recommend having dinner at Riad Fes on the first night of tour.

  • Fez Tour of Morocco
    Day 3: Fez After breakfast, begin your full day private guided tour of Fez, the holiest city in the Islamic world after Mecca and Medina. Founded at the beginning of the 9th century by Moulay Idriss II, this enchanting city has since been a seat of government, philosophy, medicine, and religion. The best surviving example of an ancient Arab city, Fez is comprised of a “new” city, established in the 12th century, and the unchanged 2,000-year-old medina.

    Tour Fez el-Bali (“Fez the Old”) and its medieval medina (old town), a UNESCO world heritage site crammed with narrow, winding streets, where donkeys laden with goods trawl alongside buyers through the ancient market. A fascinating maze of lanes, blind alleys, bustling souks, and artisan workshops, the atmosphere assaults the senses with fragrant spices, exotic delicacies, brightly colored carpets, and fine handmade goods bursting from endless stalls. Visit centuries-old mosques and universities, see the multi- colored vats of the open-air tanneries, tour the ceramic workshops that create prized Moroccan mosaics, and shop for traditional goods made from copper, ceramics, and leather. Fez is the perfect place to hone your bargaining skills in buying souvenirs. Also visit Fez el-Djedid (“Fez the New”), built in the 12th century, where you can admire Fez’s Royal Palace. Explore the mellah (Jewish Quarter), founded in 1438 and once home to tens of thousands of Jews, 40 synagogues, the Bet Din, communal ovens, ritual baths and schools.

    Visit the recently restored Ibn Danan synagogue and the oldest extant synagogue in Fez. Until very recently abandoned and decaying, its restoration was part of a comprehensive UNESCO project to preserve the monuments and fabric of medieval Fez. And no trip would be complete without a visit to the Merenid Tombs that offer spectacular panoramic views of Fez. Dinner on own; please consult your driver for recommendations and reservations.

    The Kairouan: Founded in 670, Kairouan flourished under the Aghlabid dynasty in the 19th century. Despite the transfer of the political capital to Tunis in the 12th century, Kairouan remained the Maghreb’s principal holy city. With its rich architectural heritage, it includes the Great Mosque, with the marble and porphyry columns, and the 9th-century Mosque of the Three Gates.

    Bab Semmarine: A large Almohad door that leads to Fez Jdid. The construction of this city took place in the 13th century, around 4 centuries later after Medina was founded. Much alike to Bab Guissa, the door was believed to adore with inside domes and was a curved one, which later altered to contain pedestrians.

    Borj Sud (South Borj): Here, where the minarets of the Bou Inania Medersa and the Sidi Lazaz Mosque stand out against the sky, is the main entrance to the Medina. Hispano-Moorish in style and built in the 13th century during the reign of the Almohads.

    Borj Nord (North Borj):Live the golden age of weaponry: And every civilization is represented: Indian, European or Asiatic. Nevertheless, the grand exhibits are of Moroccan civilization. For example, there are daggers coated with stones or the rifles with their inlaid butts. Undoubtedly, they are the attraction of the exhibits with their sheer size and weight in comparison with others.

    Place Nejjarine: Museum of Wood and Carpentry, once an 18th-century foundouk, is now beautifully restored. Apart from its interesting collection, it shows the sophistication of a Fassi mansion, with its inner courtyard, its décor of intricate stucco, the finely carved panels of cedar and the mosaics and layouts of tiles.

    El Attarine Medersa: The Medersa el-Attarine or Attarine Medrasa as some locals calls it. Situated at the outskirts of the spice and perfume market, this architectural splendor was created in 1325. Sultan Ya’qub Abu Said Othman II who also had a hand in several other buildings around the city of Fez initiated construction.

    Overnight: Riad Fez or Riad Myra
    Included: Breakfast
    More places you will visit during your Fez stay

  • Day 4: Fez to Midelt to Erfoud After an early breakfast, venture over the Middle Atlas mountains through fragrant, dense pine and cedar forests, terraced farms, and sienna mud-brick Berber villages. Look for the opportunity to feed wild Barbary Apes en route. Lunch will be in Midelt, a sleepy village bursting with colorful minerals and fossils on display by roadside vendors. As you head toward central Morocco, past the dramatic escarpments, plunging ravines and palm-filled gorges of Ziz Valley, you near the oasis region and desert outpost of Erfoud. Then drive to Merzouga, the point of departure for your Sahara Desert immersion.

    Overnight: Xaluca Hotel
    Included: Dinner and Breakfast

  • Merzouga
    Day 5: Merzouga Spend a relaxing day in the Sahara by the pool or walking around the dunes. Explore the mystical landscape as you ride on camelback, led by a Bedouin guide. Look for nomad families and Touaregs, who are known as the “Blue People” for the indigo dye of their robes. Delight in a Moroccan feast cooked in the elements. After dinner, climb to a high dune to appreciate the vastness of the desert and lights flickering from nomad encampments.

    Overnight: Merzouga – Tent
    Included: Dinner and Breakfast

  • Merzouga to Tineghir to Ouarzazate
    Day 6: Merzouga to Tineghir to Ouarzazate Awake with the sunrise to watch the colors of the desert change before your eyes. After breakfast in the desert, return to the Merzouga base to shower and freshen up. Continue your journey along the Road of a Thousand Kasbahs that rise up like turreted sand castles along this ancient caravan-trading route. Essentially fortified villages traditionally inhabited by specific Berber tribes or single extended families, today most Kasbahs are in ruin and inhabited by families of storks. The central region is one of the most romantic destinations of Morocco with rich river valleys, palmeries and burnished mud-brick homes ablaze in vibrant color under the shelter of the blue desert sky. The area has long been a popular location for Hollywood films such as The Last Temptation of Christ, Jewel of the Nile, Star Wars, the Mummy, and Sahara, to name a few. Travel through the Dadès Valley past dramatic escarpments and plunging gorges via Tineghir. Stop in the Todra Gorge to marvel at the natural force that carved this quiet Berber oasis and rock-climbing haven.

    Overnight: Berber Palace
    Included: Breakfast

  • Ouarzazate to Marrakesh Tour
    Day 7: Ouarzazate to Marrakesh After a leisurely breakfast, continue your journey with a visit to the fortified village of Ait Ben Haddou, a UNESCO world heritage site and the backdrop for famous films such as Lawrence of Arabia.

    Next, traverse the breathtaking snow-capped peaks of the High Atlas Mountains, the largest mountain chain in Africa. Its 400-mile long range, crowned by Mount Toubkal at nearly 14,000 feet, divides the fertile coastal regions of Morocco from the desert interior. Follow the Tizi’n’Tichka; one of only two passes through the famed Atlas, as you wind your way amid stunning vistas, spectacular rock formations, lush river valleys, and breathtaking natural beauty. Long the province of the Berber tribes that fiercely resisted all efforts at external governance, the High Atlas and its way of life remain for the most part undisturbed by modernity as the majority of the population still live in remote earthen villages. Arrive Marrakech in the afternoon.

    Overnight: Riad El Fassia
    Included: Breakfast

  • Marrakech
    Day 8: Marrakech After breakfast, meet your guide who will take you on a tour of this enchanting palm oasis set where buildings are blushed in hues of rosy earth, the signature color of Marrakech. Morocco’s second oldest imperial city retains the splendor of its ancient past. Visit the remarkable Bahia Palace from the days of the harem, enter the ancient royal Saadian Tombs, explore the vibrant and historic Jewish mellah where some of the best jewelry is found in Morocco, and view the majestic Koutoubia Mosque that dominates the landscape of the 9th century walled medina. Wind your way through the labyrinth of the spice-filled air of the bustling souk, unchanged for over 1000 years. The maze of alleyways leads to tiny shops flaunting Berber carpets, kilims and caftans, leather goods, silver jewelry, copperware, other handicrafts, stylish dresses, medicinal herbs, and gorgeous antiques. As night falls, watch the city come alive in the legendary square, Djemaa el-Fna, a UNESCO World Heritage site that hums and pulsates day and night with mystery, magic, and possibility. By day, one feasts eyes and more on succulent dates, the freshest orange juice, alchemists, acrobats, plier-wielding “dentists.” At sunset, the carnival atmosphere comes alive, as delectable fare is grilled over coals in the bustling torch-lit open- air markets, while snake charmers, whirling dervishes, musicians, and engaging storytellers seduce rapt crowds. Dinner on own; please consult your driver for recommendations and reservations.

Long a magnet for artists and musicians, the charm of Essaouira lured Orson Wells to film Othello here in 1949. Two decades later, Essaouira became an important stop on the hippie trail; both Cat Stevens and Jimi Hendrix spent evenings strumming guitars along bonfires on the beach, an inspiration for Hendrix’s “Castles Made of Sand.” Relax and stroll among woodshops and art galleries, boat builders and sardine fishermen. Among the souks worth visiting are the Fish Market, Spice Market, and Jewelers’ Market.
