After arriving at the airport, our driver takes us to our accommodation in Marrakech. After a long flight, a delicious Morrocan meal i s in order. We res t to get ready for our days exploring Morocco's important places .
After breakfast, our driver will pick us up from the hotel and head to the capital of Morocco. Here we will see the fascinating example of the Moroccan architecture. We visit the cornich and Rex Cafe. Then we leave Casablanca and head to Rabat, where we will see the Oudaya Kasbah and its beautiful gardens. This Kasbah of the Oudaya is located at Abou Regreg river. It was built in 1150 AD. We end the day and retire in our Riad.
After breakfast, we will head to Chefchaoun via Ouazzan. We will have some breaks for photos then continue to the blue city where we will explore Chefchaoun at leisure and with freedom to do what you want. You will have great relaxed day of sightseeing & wandering through narrow streets lined with blue buildings to feel like walking in the sky.Here you will discover interesting sights, culture, tradition, and way of life by Moroccan locals. Plaza Uta el-Hammam which is lined with cafes and restaurants, a peaceful place to relax and watch the world go by. After enjoying this beautiful blue city, we stay overnight at our Riad.
Rise and shine, today we travel south via Ouazzan towards Fes. Before that, we have a chance to travel back to the 3rd century by visiting one of the most important archaeological site in the kingdom. It is Volubulis, Walili in Arabic language. In Fes we meet with our local guide for the tour of the Old Medina, one of the world’s largest walled in cities. You will explore the narrow streets lined with fresh fruit, mounds of spices, woven Berber carpets and many other art objects of Morocco. A visit to the King’s Palace, the tanneries, and
potters are just a few places you will experience. After this fun day, we are dropped off at our Riad at the end of the day. If you like, enjoy your evening exploring the medina and the hustle bustle of the street stalls.
If you think you have been enjoying this trip, wait until you see what we have in store for you from today - we travel towards the Middle Atlas Mountains. Most of the day will be spent winding your way through the beautiful forests of Cedar, jagged rock faces, and Berber villages as you cross the Atlas Mountains and begin to descend towards the Sahara Desert. Half way, you will stop for lunch. Continue on mountain roads overlooking the wide flowing Oued Ziz. We arrive in the afternoon to Merzouga: saddle on your camels for your journey across the desert during a beautiful sunset to reach your camp for the night by the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi. We spend the night in the Nomad tent, night full of stars, Berber music. This is the night you will not forget.
After an amazing night, we leave the desert behind and head to the volcanic mountains of Sarhro, dramatic rock formation and gorges of superb views. This area is well known for fossils, mainly ammonites, which are plentiful in the mountains. Then we begin our travel to Alnif, heading towards the volcanic Jbel of Saghro of dramatic rock formations and gorges, where you will take a walk up in the towering Todra Gorges. The picturesque river valleys make for a beautiful journey towards the southeast of Morocco. We continue our journey towards another impressive gorge Dades, passing the strange rock creation of Tamnalt Hills.
We end the day in the heart of Dades Gorge.
Today we set off towards the High Atlas Mountains via Ouarzazate. We will arrive to the center of Moroccan roses and rose products. In typical Moroccan fashion, the true treasures must be searched out and discovered... usually off the beaten path. In actuality, this setting has been used for more films than any other location in Morocco; films including, Lawrence of Arabia, Jesus of Nazareth, and recently The Gladiator. Lunch will be enjoyed at Ait Benhaddou. We will visit the Kasbah of Telouet which was occupied by the Pacha Glaoui during his reign and is frequented by Moroccan travellers. It sits in the village of Telouet nestled outside the Onilla Valley. The Harem and reception hall areas give one a good idea
of the former luxury in which El Glaoui lived. In the afternoon, we cross over the High Atlas mountains towards Marrakech. Our driver drops us off at our fabulous accommodation in Marrakech.
We have enjoyed some good exploring and we have tasted what Morocco is about - but we do need some time to relax and chill. Today is your day to rest up and basically do what
you want. We have many optional things you may engage in if you want to, such as a spa treatment, bagaining at the souks, doing a food hopping tour, - these will be provided to you as per each person's interest.
A bonus: do you have some soverniers for your family and friends back home, have you bought that one piece for your home that will remind you of this amazing country. Or do you just feel lazy, and just want to enjoy the Riad. That's cool - whatever you choose to do - be ready for our farewell dinner that will have some yummy Morrocan cuisine later in the day to say thank you for travelling with us.
It is that day no-one likes, especially if the vacay was as wonderful as this one - but we know that the memories will carry you for a very long time and you will have tales to tell for days!
Our driver will drop us off at the airport for our flight home.
Thank you for travelling with us
