Majestic Morocco

Duration
9 Days
Prices From:
US$ 2,001

One of the world’s best travel bargains, Morocco offers splendid cities and a sweeping history spanning twelve centuries.


Experience the best Morocco has to offer on this 9-day round trip from Casablanca.

The cities of Rabat and Meknes are full of highlights, yet compact enough to see in one day. Visit the Kasbah of the Udayas and Meknes’ spectacular medina, and enjoy the exotic yet relaxed atmosphere of these imperial cities before a guided tour gives you a close look at the Roman ruins of Volubilis.

The medieval capital, Fes is a Morocco favourite and home to the country’s largest royal palace. You’ll also visit the world’s first established university, Al-Karouine and get an insight into what makes Fes a haven for Morocco’s artists and craftsmen.

Head for the mountains further inland where cedar forests surround charming ski lodges (yes, you can ski on the edge of the Sahara!). See more of the local villages and get a view of Morocco that’s very different to the major cities. Enjoy a stunning sunset at Merzouga, where you’ll overnight.

An oasis in more ways than one, stop at Tinghir, located in the High Atlas Mountains. You’ll also visit Todra Gorge before staying overnight at Ouarzazate, centre of Morocco’s film industry. You’ll even visit the local studios, where Lawrence of Arabia, Gladiator and episodes of Game of Thrones grace a prestigious list of credits.

The name Marrakech stirs to mind Morocco’s romantic reputation and with good reason. Visit the traders, snake charmers, musicians and fortune tellers of Jemaa el Fna Square, the Koutoubia Minaret, Bahia Palace and the Saadian Tombs. Then roam the souks (Moroccan markets) for that perfect souvenir. Marrakech has so much to offer, you’ll enjoy an additional morning here before your return to Casablanca.
