Imperial Morocco

Duration
8 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,799

Gain insight into the culture of Morocco as you experience the charm of Marrakech, the spirituality of Fez and the sophistication of Casablanca with first class hotels and amazing food.


The land of Kasbahs and spice souks has enthralled travellers for centuries. Morocco’s imperial splendour is keenly felt on this 8 day small group (minimum 2, maximum 12) tour on special dates, staying in First or Deluxe accomodations, taking you to its most historic and beautiful cities.

Casablanca is an exotic port city dating back to the 7th century BC. A morning tour takes you to Hassan II Mosque, the second largest in the world. Depart for Rabat, the capital of Morocco. One of CNN’s ‘Top Travel Destinations of 2013’, this imperial city has much to offer a visitor. See the Royal Palace, the Mohammed V Mausoleum, and one of the world’s oldest mosques, the Hassan Tower. Leaving Rabat, you will stop in at one of Morocco’s oldest cities, Meknes and the Roman ruins of Voulibilis.

The spiritual capital of Morocco, Fez will enchant you with its labyrinthine medina. This is also a thriving student town. You’ll visit Quarouiyin University and Mosque, as well as Merdirsa Bouanania, another major Islamic university.

The road to Marrakech is dotted with some wonderfully picturesque towns including Ifrane, noted for its unique architecture, the artist’s haven of Azrou and charming Benni Malal. The city itself is Morocco at its most romantic. A visit to Jemaa El Fna square offers a stunning array of food and performers, including musicians, snake charmers and fortune tellers. You’ll also visit the 12th century Koutoubia Mosque, the Bahia Palace and the Menara Gardens.

Fez Sightseeing

After breakfast, today you explore the city of Fes with a local guide. Fes is the oldest and largest medieval city in the world. It's a beguiling place, parts of which haven’t changed in centuries. It's a place for lovers of history, scholars and artisans. It is also considered the gastronomic capital of Morocco. Today you'll explore the city on foot and walk through its seemingly blind alleys which lead to squares with exquisite fountains, streets bursting with aromatic food stands, rooftops with a sea of minarets, and stooped doorways which reveal the workshops of tireless artisans. Your visit will include Jamaa Al-Karaouine, the world's first established university, the Medersa Bou Inania, the tanneries, clay workshops, artisan quarters and some of the labyrinthine souks.

It's the onetime home of Moulay Ismail who turned Meknes into the impressive Imperial city it was. The king's tomb sits at the heart of what remains of the original imperial city.
