Morocco. Just hearing the name evokes vibrant images of an ancient culture, romantic Moorish architecture, delicately spiced North African cuisine and wildly desolate landscapes.

Our tour starts in Casablanca, the largest city in Morocco and a place where old meets new. From here we head to Rabat where our exploration includes the Royal Palace, ancient ruins of Chellah, and the Oudaya Kasbah.

Romantic Chefchaouen, with its bright blue buildings, is next on our programme. In Meknes the monumental Bab Mansour gate with its priceless mosaics and lavish tile inscriptions will steal your breath. In Fez, our knowledgeable guide will lead the way as we walk through the maze of alleyways in the bustling Old Quarter with its souks and tanneries. A visit to Nejjarine Square with its elaborate mosaic tile fountain is a highlight.

There is so much to discover in the colourful chaos that is Marrakesh! Journey through narrow streets lined with fruit stalls, mounds of spices, intricately woven Berber carpets, leatherworks and ceramics. Bargaining for treasures at the sprawling medina, with its endless maze of souks is an art as old as time. We learn to cook a traditional tagine and visit Yves St. Laurent’s Majorelle Gardens. Boasting over 300 plant species from five continents, this is another highlight of the tour.

We travel back in time in Aït Ben Haddou, and no visit to Morocco is complete without spending a night in the world’s largest desert, the Sahara. The quietude and space are indescribable, the night sky boundless with skies so crisp and clear that the stars seem close enough to touch. A sunset camel ride over its rolling dunes will be imprinted in your memory forever.

Experience Morocco the way you always dreamed of on this 12-day tour from 26 October 2024 to 06 November 2024.

On your own, it’s easy to get lost in the complex maze of streets that make up the Fes medina. But on this tour, we’ll navigate the narrow, winding alleyways with a knowledgeable local guide who will enlighten us on all the historic sites along the way.

We’ll visit the top Islamic sites of Fes, including Bou Inania Madrasa, which dates to the 13th century, and view the courtyard of the beautiful Kairaouine Mosque and University from the outside.

Another highlight of this walking tour is Zaouia of Moulay Idriss II, the tomb of the founder of Fes and the palace exterior.

Our tour takes us to Place Lalla Eydouna, where old fondouks have been renovated and where now we can see all the craftsmen at work – weaving, pottery and ceramics, leather, caftans and more… all the traditional crafts of Fes. We’ll also have a chance to see the Chouara Tannery, packed with round stone vessels filled with colourful leather dyes. It promises to be an unforgettable day!

Continue to Ouarzazate via the road of the thousand kasbahs and the Dades Valley where roses bloom in profusion in the springtime. The locals make good use of the prolific flowers by producing rose water here which is used in Yves Saint Laurent’s perfume called Paris.

Our hotel for the night, Dar Chamaa, is situated in the Ouarzazate Palm Grove with spectacular views of the Atlas Mountains.

O/N at Riad Dar Chamaa or similar including breakfast, light lunch, and dinner.
