Your Destination —
Discover the bustling souks of Marrakech, the highest mountain range in North Africa, and the sweeping sand dunes of the Sahara on this exciting tour.
Flat-roofed, earthen Berber villages cling tenaciously to the valley sides, while irrigated terraced gardens and walnut groves flourish below. On this tour you will explore the lush valleys, irrigated by springs, palatial kasbahs recalling an ancient past and fortified villages which have stood the test of time. All this, against a backdrop of burnished red sands and snow-capped peaks... Welcome to Morocco!

Optional Excursions —
You may choose to add a full day tour of Essaouria, a visit to the Ouzoud Falls and/or a traditional Hammam & Massage.
Leave Marrakech behind and head towards the Atlantic coast of Essaouira. Your guide tells you about the history of the town and shows you characteristics of the 15th and 18th centuries, such as ramparts, the fishing port and harbour, Skala (market) and its quaint Medina.
It is then time to go to Skala, the municipal market. See countless artisans working in their workshops and the many arts that skilled craftsmen create. Walk through markets where stalls groan under the weight of colourful fruit and fresh vegetables, or simply wander through the harbour and witness the hive of activity at the water's edge. If you choose to, enjoy a scrumptious lunch served at one of the many restaurants that line the coast (not included). Before heading back to Marrakech, your guide takes you to key points in the city, including the port, Medina – the old town filled with souks – and Mellah, a Jewish quarter.
Ouzoud Falls, one of the most breathtaking places in the country & highest natural waterfalls in North Africa. Green valleys, orchards, caves, gorges from the river El Abid and happy Barbary apes in their natural habitat make this tour a perfect day out. Leave the city behind and pass red cliffs, oleander and doves en route to one of Morocco's most spectacular sights. The Ouzoud waterfalls are located in a plush valley near the High Atlas Mountains, within the friendly Berber village of Tanaghmeilt. This tiered series of three waterfalls plunges from 110 metres (360 feet) above, its wide-to-narrow streams splashing into the river below.
A short walk takes you to the top of the falls where you can admire the beauty of the nature beneath your feet. Here you can also have lunch in a Berber restaurant and enjoy the waterfalls from its shaded terraces, or walk down the steps & explore the caves where water mills are used to grind wheat grain into flour (thereby the Berber word ‘Ouzoud’ meaning grinding grain).
Keep an eye out for apes coming to drink from the river, and have your camera ready to capture the cataracts and rainbows that can appear near the bottom of the waterfalls.
Traditional Hammam & Massage
Just relax, and choose a time to be picked up and taken to a traditional hammam – a body scrub with natural black organic ghassoul, made from clay extracted from the Atlas beds, rich in magnesium, calcium & potassium & used for 12 centuries. Then, be pampered with an hour long comforting massage, using authentic essential oils.
Feeling absolutely fabulous – shop in the nearby trendy boutiques, maybe have a light lunch in one of the fusion restaurants, or your driver will take you back to the riad.
