Day by Day Itinerary

Day 1 Casablanca: Arrival into Casablanca

Casablanca

Welcome to Casablanca, Morocco’s largest city, often associated with the romantic 1945 film of the same name, although it’s a bit different than what it depicts, with modern development and appealing French colonial and traditional Moroccan architecture. Take private transfer from the airport to your hotel in the city where you can rest up for the fun-filled journey ahead, or perhaps explore the medina with its narrow streets filled with restaurants and stalls selling traditional handmade items and authentic leather garments.

Day 2 Casablanca

Casablanca

This morning you’ll visit Casablanca’s Hassan II Mosque which overlooks the Atlantic. One of the world’s largest places of worship, accommodating up to 25,000, a guided tour will reveal its grandeur. Afterwards, take private transfer to Fes, stopping at the walled Ismailia capital of Meknes. Visit an arts and crafts galleria with elaborate marble columns from the Roman city of Volubilis, historic royal stables, artisan markets and more. You’ll also stop in the holy city of Moulay Idriss before reaching your Fes hotel.

Day 3 Fes

Fes

Head out with a private guide to explore Fes this morning. Morocco’s cultural and spiritual center, it was established in the 9th century and is home to the world’s oldest university, founded in 859 AD. A full-day tour will bring you to witness firsthand, trades like silk weaving, leather working, blacksmithing and tanning, that are still practised today. Visit the colourful tannery of Fes and marvel at the original ramparts, still protect this ancient city with bustling streets and some 9,000 different passageways.

Day 4 Marrakech

Marrakech

After checking out of your Fes hotel, private transfer will bring you to Marrakech, with a stop for lunch along the way. This scenic drive travels through the Atlas Mountains bringing breathtaking views of the soaring cliff faces and stunning passes. You’ll see picturesque Berber villages and get a glimpse of Moroccan rural life in the university town of Irfrane. Visit the Kasbah of Ras El Ain and check out the merchants offering gifts and souvenirs before checking into your Marrakech hotel.

Day 5 Marrakech

Marrakech

A private guided tour will bring you through the highlights of Marrakech, star with the 12th century Koutoubia Mosque with its spectacular minaret that stands out above the buildings. Discover Bahia Palace, a blend of Moorish and Andalusian architecture with a beautiful courtyard and trapezoidal garden. Visit one of Morocco’s top archaeological sites, the Saadian Tombs and Musee De Marrkech, a fine example of Moorish architecture. Enjoy wondering through the souks with their remarkable array of foods, spices and handicrafts too.

Day 6 Marrakech

Marrakech

A guided walking tour will bring you through impressive gardens as you discover oases in the city, with exotic plants, trees, water features and more. Explore the Yves Saint Laurent Museum and then journey by car to the Palmery Museum to view its works of art before returning to your hotel. This evening, hop into a horse-drawn carriage, passing highlights like the ancient ramparts and fortified gates, stopping at Agdal Gardens. Walk through Djemaa el Fna square, with the marketplace particularly lively at night.

Day 7 High Atlas Mountains

High Atlas Mountains

Your private driver will bring you to your hotel in the High Atlas Mountains this morning, an area known as the “roof of North Africa,” overlooking three valleys and surrounded by waterfalls, a lake, cliffs, plantations and plateaus. Made for outdoor adventures, it’s a hiker’s paradise with lots of walks, although you can do everything from mountain biking and 4X4 tours to mule and horse treks. Toubkal National Park, home to the charming Imlil mountain village can be explored too.

Day 8 High Atlas Mountains

High Atlas Mountains

Experience the daily life of the locals in the High Atlas Mountains on a 4X4 excursion today, with the off-road fun starting in Imlil. Travel to villages that sit in the highest peaks of the range, stroll through native flora and fauna, including Barbary sheep, and visit a local’s home sampling fresh-baked bread straight from an ancient oven, paired with local delicacies. In picturesque Tahanoute, set among citrus and olive trees, a local will prepare a home-cooked meal where you’ll dine atop the roof.

Day 9 Departure Day

Atlas Mountains

As the final day of your 8-night tour has arrived, it’s time to begin the journey home.
