DAY TO DAY ITINERARY

Day 1: Casablanca City Tour

Once you land at the Mohamed V Airport in Casablanca, your guide will meet you at your arrival gate to take you immediately to check-in to your hotel. The remainder of the morning will be spent relaxing and acclimating. In the afternoon, your guide will take you on a monumental tour exploring Casablanca city tour, the largest port of the Maghreb and “capital in all but administration.” Next, you will visit the Habous quarter to be introduced to your first Spanish Moorish ambiance of a lively market in old Casablanca, then the Art Deco colonial downtown with the natural flavor of the Mystic French connection. Your guide will introduce you to La Corniche and the Ain Diab shoreline. This will give you an idea of the creative architecture in the neighborhoods of the well-off Moroccans of Anfa quarter and also the inclusive resort of La Corniche. And, of course, you will not miss the great mosque of Hassan II, the second-largest mosque in the world. Finally, you will return to your hotel for dinner.

Day 2: Travel from Casablanca to Rabat

You will spend your day discovering the delights that Rabat has to offer. Your guide will take you on a historical and lively tour of the Jewish quarter, the Mellah in the Heart of the city, starting at Place Sidi Makhlouf. The 12th-century ramparts are best seen from this landmark. Walk up to Bab Chellah in the medina and cross Sidi Fateh St. This will lead you to the traditional Souk Laghzel (Yarn market). Your guide will introduce you to the importance of this guild on textile role in Moroccan society. Later, you will cross to the citadel of the Oudaya Kasbah, entering from its 12th-century main gate to explore an extraordinary Medieval Moorish marvel overlooking the delta of the Bourgreg River. You will have the opportunity to visit the old-fashioned Moorish gardens, stop in a traditional coffee house for mint tea, and, in between, explore the Oudaya Museum of tribal arts and Crafts. A docent will introduce you to traditional Berber Textiles. You will continue your quest by exiting the Oudaya Kasbah and climbing the hill to visit the Hassan Tower and Mohamed the V Mausoleum, emblematic of real Moroccan architecture at its finest. At the end of your tour, you will reach the Royal Palace and the Necropolis of Chellah. Finally, you will return to the hotel for dinner and other accommodations.

Day 3: Visiting Moulay Idriss and Meknes to Fez

The first stop will be the ancient Roman city of Volubilis. Volubilis was a critical city in the imperial Roman department of Mauritania (modern-day Morocco and the Western Sahara) during the reign of Caracalla. Jumping forward in time, just a few minutes away, is the venerated citadel of Moulay Idris, founded in the 8th century by Moulay Idris Al Akbar, grandson of the Prophet Mohamed (s.a.w.s). This citadel is considered to be both the cradle of Sufism in Moroccan society and the first Islamic capital for the premier Arab dynasty. The next stop is the imperial city of Meknes. Meknes is a 17th-century city built by Moulay Ismail to rival Fez. It is also considered to be the Versailles of Morocco. Finally, you have reached your destination, the ninth-century city of Fez. In the evening, you will taste the greatest of the Imperial Cities. You will visit the sights outside the ancient walled city, including the ramparts, the gates, and the Borjs (Moorish Forts). After this introductory aperitif to Fez, you will dine in your hotel and prepare for day three: Fez!

Day 4: Fez Full Day Historic Visit

The most ancient imperial capital and the most complete medieval city of the Islamic world, Fez resembles a city suspended in time, unfazed by the constantly evolving world outside its walls. Time spent in Fez will reveal much about the sophistication of the Moroccan artisan, providing an unparalleled learning experience to those who cross its path. You will spend your morning visiting the Medina. Our specialized guide will take you on a historic discovery of the city, starting at the King's Palace and its Meshwar with ramparts and majestic gates. Next, you will explore the Jewish quarter, a 15th-century citadel with all its Moorish maze architecture and medieval glory. Visits to Sephardic synagogues and mausoleums of holy Rabbis will be the highlights of this part of town. Then, we will drive to the Merinides hill to visit their necropolis. Here, you will enjoy the best panoramic view of the old walled Medina, brimful with countless minarets to call for prayers in a city that has responded to these calls for 12 centuries. Drive down the hills to the gate of Bab Guissa to leave your vehicle and enter an ancient world. Fez has preserved its Medina as it was centuries ago. Not even a bicycle can be used as a tool of transportation. Only donkeys, mules, and horses can help move all that the city produces and needs as supplies. The first guilds you will immediately encounter are the cobblers, the saddlers, and blacksmiths, interlaced by some caravansaries for tribesmen who come from the surrounding areas to trade and supply their needs. Down the hill to Juteya, you will encounter all sorts of crafts, but noticeably carpenters and leather workers as one of the traditional tanneries is not far. This walk will lead you to El Ashabine Square, which has a variety of activities. From there, you will wind your way to the Sgha square, leading you to Attarine, Souk el Henna, and the Mausoleum of Moulay Idris, the founder of Fez. Next to it, you will visit Nejjarine Square, which has a famous fountain, a Guild of Carpentry, and a Museum of Folk Arts at the Fondouk. You will walk to the tannery and visit the Great Mosque University of Al Quarrawiyyine, passing by Shemma'ine, the dried fruit market. After that, you will see the Medersa Attarine and walk to Sbetryyine, a guild of bookbinders, which will lead you to the Seffarine Square, where the tapping of metalworkers is still deafening passersby as it was the case for centuries. You will break for lunch and then continue exploring the marvels of Fez Medina. These will highlight the Dyers souk, Foundouk Tetouani, and the shrine of Sidi Ahmed Tijani. You will end your walk at Foundouk Lihoudi, where a local Fez family will host you for a traditional mint tea at their home.

Day 5: Explore the Atlas Mountains to the Sahara

You will spend your day discovering the rural environs of the Atlas Mountains' Berbers. Covered with evergreen pines, tall cedar trees, and poplars and laced with flowing streams, your first view of the Middle Atlas will appear oddly un-Moroccan. Passing by Imouzzer, with a quick stop at the Swiss-like town of Ifrane, you will soon come across the first real town of the Middle Atlas, Azrou. Azrou is an important market center for the region's Berber tribes, located at a major junction of mountain routes. Your driver will take a little detour in a cedar forest to introduce you to one of the oldest inhabitants of this region, the Berber apes. This may also coincide with the encounter of a nomadic family in its temporary encampment. Nomads are very hospitable, so whenever we encounter them, we are all invited at least for a mint of tea under their tents. Midelt's Middle Atlases give way to the High Atlas Mountains, whose peaks are visible through the haze, soaring to over 12,000 feet. You will stop in Midelt for lunch, enjoying the dramatic sight before you. You will then continue to Erfoud, one of the most delightful southern regions consisting of a dry, red belt of desert with a sudden drop into the lush valley of Ziz, with copious date palm groves and flowing streams. Visit the gorges of Ziz and some oases and natural sites before you reach the magnificent oasis of Erfoud. After you arrive in Erfoud, you will leave your vehicle and hop on your Camel to your camp. You will conclude your day in your camp over the dunes of Merzouga, where tents are pitched to allow you to enjoy a night under the African Skies. After dinner, the Rokba drummers will illuminate your night with their lively dances and moving chants. Enjoy this encounter of Man and nature at its best.

Day 6: Explore the oases of Erfoud and Rissani

You will wake up early to reach the highest peak of the dunes and watch the sun rise over the spectacular Merzouga dunes. This is an experience that should not be missed. Afterward, you will eat breakfast with the Toaregs and continue onward, transported in a 4-wheel drive vehicle, to explore the ancient, holy oasis of Rissani. There, you will visit the ruins of Sijilmassa, remnants of the first Arab and Islamic city of Morocco, and the prehistoric fossils present throughout the desert. You will then return to your hotel for dinner and other accommodations.

Day 7: Travel from the Dunes of Merzouga to the Todra Valley

You will leave Erfoud and travel west toward the Valley of Todra, which lies between the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara Desert. You will reach Tinghir, the town where we will spend the night. Only 15 kilometers from Tinghir inside the Valley of Todra, you will find the Todra’s highest and narrowest gorges in the region. Next, you will travel through the Dadès valley, where in the spring, thousands of Persian roses bloom in hedgerows, filling the air with their heavenly perfume. You will also see the thousands of Kasbahs scattered along the Dadès River and majestic sandcastles with a visually appealing, timeless beauty. You will end your day with dinner and other accommodations at your hotel.

Day 8: Explore the Oases from Todra Valley to Ouarzazate

Today, you will continue to explore the Dadès Valley, traveling through El Kelaâ De Mgouna and Boumalne to view the inimitable natural vistas and unusual rock formations. You will then continue to Ouarzazate, one large oasis that intercepts the water flow between the Dadès, the Drâa valleys, and the majestic High Atlas Mountains. It is an ideal place to stop for the night. You will conclude your day with dinner and other accommodations in your hotel.

Day 9: Travel from Ouarzazate to Marrakesh

You will spend most of your day en route to Marrakesh, exploring the legendary Kasbah of Aït-Benhaddou, a renowned architectural marvel classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Your journey will lead you to the highest pass in Morocco, the Taddart and Tizi Tishka, at 11,000 feet. This pass divides the mountains into two distinct facets: the harsh, stark side, which acts as a shield protecting the hinterland from the harsh, dry expansion of the Sahara, and the lush, soft, and evergreen side, which collects the moisture from the Gherbi winds of the Atlantic Ocean. You will arrive in Marrakech, a city of pleasure for both visitors and locals. Southern tribesmen and Berber villagers bring their goods to market, and tourists find a variety of entertainment. To tourists, the city is a feast for the imagination, full of incomparable beauty, situated before the towering mountains that provide a thrilling backdrop. After a visit to the bustling Jemaa El Fna square, you will conclude your day with dinner and other accommodations at your hotel.

Day 10: Marrakech

You will spend most of your day en route to Marrakesh, exploring the legendary Kasbah of Aït-Benhaddou, a renowned architectural marvel classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site. In addition, you will visit the mausoleums of other Rabbis, as well as the city's synagogues. Your journey will lead you to the highest pass in Morocco, the Taddart and Tizi Tishka, at 11,000 feet. This pass divides the mountains into two distinct facets: the harsh, stark side acting as a shield that protects the hinterland from the harsh, dry expansion of the Sahara, and a lush side, soft and evergreen, which collects the moisture from the Gherbi winds of the Atlantic Ocean. You will arrive in Marrakech, a city of pleasure for both visitors and locals. Southern tribesmen and Berber villagers bring their goods to market, and tourists find a variety of entertainment.

You will return to Marrakech for dinner and other accommodations at your hotel.

Day 12: Transfer from Marrakesh to Essaouira

You will begin your day by traveling to Essaouira (Mogador), a picturesque city with a rich history. With a fascinating antiquity, Essaouira was occupied by the Phoenicians and Carthaginians, supplied essential purple dyes to the Romans, absorbed the sophisticated Jewish arts of silversmith, and spent centuries as a Portuguese enclave. Despite the obvious influence of these civilizations, Essaouira has managed to remain a small, authentic Berber town. Alive with the breath of fresh air provided by the Atlantic, Essaouira is a jewel nestled in the ragged coast, with a vast expanse of empty sands trailing back along the promontory towards the South. After an introductory tour, you will conclude your day with dinner and other accommodations in your hotel.

Day 13: Travel from Essaouira to Casablanca

You will travel to Casablanca, stopping at El Oualidia for a seafood lunch. You will continue to El Jadida, where you will visit the citadel, evidence of the 11th-century Portuguese occupation.
