Your Itinerary In Detail

7-Night Tour

Day 1: Arrival in Marrakesh

 

On arrival, you will be met and greeted by our holiday advisor and transferred to your hotel.

 

Overnight at Palm Menara Hotel (or similar)

 

Day 2: Marrakech (Breakfast/Lunch)

 

Discover Marrakech.  Your tour today will take you to the El Bahia Palace, the Dar El Basha Quarter to see the traditional Moroccan restaurants, and onto the Qassabine and Smarine Souks (markets) to peruse their speciality goods of basketwork, dried fruit, spices and fabrics.

 

The ancient, former slave market of Rhaba Kedima Square reveals a fusion of Africa and the East, where locals arrive in their hundreds to buy ingredients. Free time at the huge, lively square at the heart of Marrakesh. Jemaa-el-fna is one of the city's principal attractions.

 

By day or by night, the square is filled with wandering salesmen, musicians, dancers, and snake charmers attracting the attention of a cosmopolitan crowd, who come to experience the lively and colourful Marrakesh.

 

Lunch in a Moroccan restaurant.

Overnight at Palm Menara Hotel or (similar)

 

Day 3: Marrakech to Casablanca (Breakfast/Lunch)

 

Journey north to Morocco’s largest city, Casablanca, a modern metropolis with a distinctively European feel. Wander around the League of Arab States Park, a verdant area dotted with palm trees, before continuing to the Notre Dame de Lourdes Church with its exquisite stained-glass windows.

 

Passing the busy shopping area of the Habous Quarter, arrive at the magnificent Hassan II Mosque (exterior visit). Spanning over 20,000 square metres, the Moorish influenced mosque boasts the world’s tallest minaret and is a symbol of pride to the Moroccan people.

 

Lunch in local restaurant, then check in to your hotel.

Overnight at Suisse Hotel (or similar)

Day 4: Casablanca - Rabat - Volubilis - Meknes - Fez (Breakfast/Lunch)

After breakfast, leave Casablanca and drive north to Morocco’s capital city, Rabat. Similar in its European feel, the city offers numerous parks and wide, tree-lined boulevards and is also home to the Royal Palace, the official royal residence.

 

On arrival, visit the UNESCO recognised Hassan Tower, an iconic minaret built in 1195 from distinctive red sandstone and one of the few parts remaining from the original La Giralda in Sevilla.

 

Located across the road is the mausoleum of Mohammed V, one of the country’s finest examples of modern Alaouite dynasty architecture. With stunning mahogany domes and intricate gold leaf decorations, it is the place where all Moroccans come to honour the tombs of their past Kings.

 

After Rabat, continue to Meknes to see the architectural legacy of Sultan Moulay Ismail. A ruthless tyrant, the Sultan was one of Morocco’s greatest leaders. He settled in Meknes with his harem of 500 wives, where he brought in slaves to build an imperial city with ingeniously designed granaries and stables for an incredible 12,000 horses.

 

Lunch en route (included)

 

Visit another UNESCO World Heritage Site treasure, the ancient Roman town of Volubilis. The archaeological site is the best preserved in Morocco and contains beautifully intricate mosaics. After some time exploring the area, arrive in Fez and check in to the hotel. 

Overnight at Across hotel (or similar)

 

Day 5: Fez (Breakfast/Lunch)

 

A full day tour exploring Morocco’s spiritual and cultural heart awaits. This enchanting city, set against a backdrop of the lush Zalagh mountain range, is acknowledged to be one of the most important in Morocco, where old and new thrive side by side.

 

Brimming with history, numerous civilisations have settled or passed through leaving a spectacular legacy of palaces, mosques, and museums, filled with precious treasures.

 

The ancient medina of Fez is the largest and oldest in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Remaining unchanged since the 12th century, it is home to the architecturally rich Andalucian Quarter.

 

Crossing a few of the 9,000 or so streets in this labyrinth district, you will pass some of the oldest and most esteemed of Fez’s mosques and religious schools. This includes the 1,200-year-old Al Kairouyine which claims to be the oldest university in the world, as well as the grandiose El Bouanania Medersa, famed for its glittering emerald-green tile roof.

 

The spiritual capital is alive with traditional crafts and famous for its tanneries with their brightly coloured dyes and pigments, providing a fascinating insight into the sights and smells of a craft that has remained practically unchanged for centuries. Return to the hotel.

 

Lunch included in traditional Fassi restaurant

Overnight at Across Hotel (or similar)

 

Day 6: Fez – Ifrane - Azrou - Beni Mellal – Marrakech  (Breakfast/Lunch)

 

Bidding farewell to Fez this morning, journey past the small town of Azrou, tucked into the hills of the Middle Atlas Mountains, and through some of the most remote and beautiful landscapes in the region.

 

With gorgeous lakes and dense cedar forests that are home to the endangered Barbary Apes, the area is of great importance and an interesting contrast to the lowland regions.

 

Arrive in Beni Mellal, tucked away in the Middle Atlas Mountains, sitting at the foot of Jbel Tassemit (2247m), and next to the plains of Beni Amir, in time for lunch en route.

 

Return to the ochre-coloured city of Marrakech. Short halt in the palm groves (for refreshment), surrounded by more than 300,000 tropical palm trees and set against a backdrop of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, encapsulating the exotic essence of Morocco with bright colours.

 

Overnight at Palm Menara Hotel (or similar)  

 

Day 7: Marrakech (Breakfast)

 

After a late breakfast at your hotel, you will be picked up from the hotel and driven to the medina. Enjoy shopping for ingredients at the local market and join a Moroccan cooking class in a riad, where you'll be taught how to use local ingredients to make a traditional Moroccan family meal.

 

Under the guidance of a great chef, learn to make dishes such as Moroccan salads, tajine, and bread while taking notes on the chef, which will be handed to you upon your arrival. Finally, in reward for all these efforts, taste all the preparations while sitting under the shade of an orange tree.

 

Enjoy a mint tea making competition, and get the recipes to surprise your friends back home!

 

Around 6 pm, you'll be picked up from your hotel and driven to Agafay desert for a memorable dromedary ride through the beautiful Oasis of Agafay.

Along the way, there will be photo stops for panoramic views of the Sour village. 


Then, onto the village of Aghbalou in the Ourika valley, where you will be invited into the home of ZOHRA and his family. They will be delighted to share preparations for a Berber lunch and ceremonial mint tea with you. Zohra will ensure your your lunch is prepared with great care.

Your Destinations

Marrakech

Marrakech is the epicentre of culture in Morocco, thanks to its ancient Medina, lively souks, and historic monuments. Immerse yourself in the heady atmosphere, with snake charmers in the bustling Jemaa El Fna Square, peace and tranquillity at the Bahia Palace, or an onrush of colour and spices in the dense souks of the Medina.

 

While Marrakech preserves its centuries-old history at places such as the Koutoubia Mosque, the city's Bohemian atmosphere is most present in Jardin Majorelle, a landscaped botanical garden created by French artist Jacques Majorelle and later bought by Yves Saint-Laurent. Alternatively, visitors can escape the city altogether and take a trip to the Atlas Mountains to visit the region’s traditional Berber villages and argan oil cooperatives.

 

At the end of the day, Le Jardin Secret is the perfect place to enjoy a stylish meal in a chic Moroccan courtyard. Alternatively, retreat to one of the Medina’s rooftop restaurants for a delicious tagine while watching the sunset over the city mosques.

Fes

The second-largest city in Morocco, Fes is an architectural gem and a first-rate destination. The Fes Medina is glorious in its chaos, with winding alleys leading to exquisite fountains and streets bursting with aromatic scents. Visit the imperial city of Meknes, the natural park of Tazeka and the Moulay Yacoub thermal baths.
