Join us as we travel along North Africa’s ancient caravan routes – from shimmering Casablanca across the silent Sahara desert and over the mighty Atlas Mountains to the glorious red adobe city of Marrakech. From friendly Berber villages in high mountain passes, to scenes straight out of Arabian Nights, this stunning Moroccan adventure brings to life the most magical tales ever told.
YOUR HOLIDAY ITINERARY
DAY 1. Join the flight to Casablanca. Transfer to our centrally located hotel for one night.
DAY 2. After breakfast we include a fascinating city tour of Casablanca. A guide will accompany you around the sights of this shimmering whitewashed city. In the afternoon, we will travel to Rabat for one night. During an included tour of the historical sights you will see the storybook Kasbah des Oudaia, an ancient Arab citadel that stands atop cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Bou Regreg River.
DAY 3. This morning we depart Rabat and travel via the sacred city of Moulay Idriss. There will also be time to visit the medina, Dar Jami Palace, the Royal Stables, and try out the fine restaurants and outdoor cafés in the modern part of the city. From here we will continue to our hotel in Fès for two nights.
DAY 4. Following breakfast this morning, the day will be devoted to touring Fès, the spiritual, intellectual and cultural capital of Morocco.
DAY 5. Leave Fès behind and head for another exotic beauty, the wonderful, welcoming Berber village and mountain resort of Immouzer Kandar. Next it’s onto Azrou, another relaxed and very friendly Berber village. Our journey continues through the highlands to the foot of Mount Tassemit and the green city of Béni-Mellal, before we continue to our hotel in Marrakech for two nights.
DAY 6. A day to discover the city where the Arabian Nights fantasy is based on reality – magical Marrakech. While your half day tour takes in sights such as the Koutoubia Mosque, Saadian Tombs, Menara Gardens, souks and the medina, you will be blown away by what you see on the famous square of Jamaa El Fna, especially at night. While impeccably dressed chefs grill sausages and kebabs under the stars, musicians, snake charmers, monkey handlers, merchants, medicine men, preachers, storytellers, magicians, dancers and acrobats all perform in a wonderful blaze of humanity.
DAY 7. Today we travel back to Casablanca for one night, stopping en route to visit the city of Settat.
DAY 8. Bid farewell and transfer to the airport for the return flight to the UK.
