Day 2: Arrive in Casablanca – Rabat

Arrive in Casablanca and transfer to your hotel in Rabat. You’ll have the rest of the day at your leisure to explore the capital city of Morocco, or relax in your hotel in preparation for your upcoming adventure. This evening, enjoy a cup of steaming mint tea while your guide enthralls you with information about your Moroccan escapade.

Day 3: Rabat Sightseeing Tour (B)

A ‘fortified palace’ of divine architecture, see some of Rabat’s exquisite and innovative design with tours of the opulent Royal Palace and ancient ruins of Chellah, the Oudaya Kasbah and the Hassan Tower. The rest of the afternoon will be free for you to enjoy at leisure.

Day 4: Rabat – Fez (B, D)

Depart for Fez, and stop en route to visit the ancient ruins of the Roman city of Volubilis – home to wonderfully preserved original mosaics, the Roman Road and an intricate ancient city layout.

As you travel through the Moroccan countryside, capture snaps of the Holy City of Moulay Idriss and upon arrival in Fez, enjoy breathtaking views of this ancient city from a hill overlooking the medina. Enjoy a short bus tour of the imperial city on the way to the hotel and after you’ve settled in, sit down to a special dinner hosted by a local family and learn about Moroccan culture and traditions.*

*Local dinner in Fez may be moved to the following day, depending on the host’s availability.

Day 5: Fez Free Day (B)

Enjoy a full day at leisure to wander the old medina yourself, or choose to take the optional guided tour where you will visit the many hidden treasures of the medina that only a Moroccan guide knows.

The capital of Morocco for more than 400 years, this stunning city is famous for its tanneries and the Fes el Bali Medina, while the Attarine Medersa, Moulay Idriss mausoleum, and Nejjarine Fountains and Museum are also worth a visit.

Later, arrive in Rissani. Set off on a tour of the lively souk, visit an 18th-century ksar and discover the ancient ruins of Sijilmasa on the River Ziz – once a bustling Berber city and medieval trade depot.

Follow the road of the thousand Kasbahs – incredible mud-brick forts that look part fairy-tale castle and part sand-castle – and Dades Valley, renowned for its roses, before arriving in Ouarzazate for check in this evening.

Day 9: Ouarzazate City Tour – Marrakesh (B)

The silent city of Ouarzazate – which translates to ‘without noise’ – is the door to the desert and your gateway to spectacular city sightseeing today. Walk in the Taourirt village, a still-thriving community founded in the 12th century, and the Kasbah Taourirt, an impressive structure that was built to house hundreds of people. Finally, visit Ait Ben Haddou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This afternoon, travel to Marrakech via the highest road in Morocco, the Tichka Pass. This impressive landscape lies in the heart of the Atlas Mountain Range, a jaw-dropping formation spanning three countries and separates the Sahara from the sea.

Begin your dazzling tour of Marrakech at the 16th century Saadian Tombs, where Saadian royalty found their final resting place. Continue to the Koutoubia Minaret and the beautiful Bahia Palace. Finally, end the tour by walking through the medina, getting a chance to admire all of the different artisans performing their crafts before arriving at the Jaama El Fna Square.

Afterwards, enjoy the afternoon at leisure or watch an optional couscous cooking demonstration. Perhaps round off your evening with an optional horse-drawn carriage ride and dinner with a traditional belly dancing showcase.
