Enjoy a full-day sightseeing tour that will take in the highlights of Marrakech, including magnificent Bahia Palace and the 12th-century Koutoubia Mosque that stands out among the skyline with its soaring minaret. Stroll through Majorelle, a beautiful botanical garden and artist’s landscape garden, and explore the Dar Si Said Museum. An optional lunch follows in the medina before walking through the bustling souks. At dusk enjoy drinks and a sunset view from a café terrace above the square, with dinner at your hotel.
Day 3 Marrakech
You’ll have the day to do as you wish, with options for day trips to coastal Essouira or the Atlas Mountains. If you’d like to see more of Marrakech, stick around and relax or take advantage of one of the many spas with hammams for a tranquil soak and perhaps some indulgent treatments. You might delve into the culture through its food with a food tour, take a vintage sidecar ride through the city’s enticing streets, or take an unforgettable hot air balloon ride over the High Atlas Mountains . Tonight, enjoy dinner at a typical Moroccan restaurant, or your hotel.
Day 4 Atlas Mountains/Ouarzazate
Say goodbye to Marrakech this morning with a scenic drive that brings spectacular views of the mountains and valleys on your way to Ait Benhaddou, a remarkable fortified kasbah that sits high atop a hill. The medieval city has been featured in famous films like “Lawrence of Arabia” and “Gladiator,” thanks to its unrivalled beauty. You’ll continue to Ouarzazate, another popular Hollywood filming site for everything from “Game of Thrones” to James Bond movies. Enjoy dinner here in your hotel this evening.
Day 5 Merzouga Desert
Venture into the desert, passing through palm groves and fields of roses before stopping at magnificent Todra Gorge, the Grand Canyon of Morocco with its towering limestone cliffs that changes colours with the position of the sun. Enjoy exploring before continuing to Merzouga. From here, depending on the season, you may be able to enjoy a swim before climbing atop a camel for a ride into the Sahara to marvel at a desert sunset. Tonight, camp among the dunes of Erg Chebbi.
Day 6 Fes
Wake up to a stunning desert sunrise and enjoy breakfast before returning by camel to meet your driver who will bring you to medieval Fes. The long drive features many alluring sights, including cedar forests filled with Barbary monkeys as you make your way through the Atlas range. Get a glimpse of the nomadic Berbers as they travel through the mountains, and stop in Ifrane, with its Swiss alpine looks, just before reaching your hotel in Fes where you’ll enjoy dinner tonight.
Day 7 Fes
After breakfast at your hotel in Fes, join your inspiring guide for a tour of the historic city, founded in the 9th-century, home to the world’s oldest university. You will explore Fes’ three main areas: Fes el Bali, the oldest area of the city, filled with 9,000 streets and alleyways, surrounded by city walls, ‘New’ Fes is where you’ll find the Jewish quarter, and the city’s newest addition, Villa Nouvelle, founded under French rule, before heading back to your hotel for a relaxing afternoon.
Day 8 Fes
You’ll get a full day to enjoy the country’s cultural capital at your leisure. For an authentic local experience, relax at one of the many hammams throughout the city. You might want to do some shopping at one of the oldest souks, like the Henna Souk which offers traditional cosmetics like henna and ceramics. Be sure to visit the Golden Gates at Royal Palace, one of the top spots in Fes for photos. This evening you will join a local family for dinner in the Medina, to learn about authentic recipes, ingredients, and gastronomy, which will provide you with a firsthand understanding of Moroccan culture, and hospitality.
Day 9 Chefchaouen
Your enchanting adventure leaves Fes after breakfast, with a scenic drive toward the Rif mountains and the famous Blue City, Chefchaouen.

You’ll be delivered to your hotel in Chefchaouen, a blue dream with its vibrant blue architecture nestled in the hills.
Day 10 Chefchaouen
Enjoy breakfast at your hotel and then head out to explore Chefchaouen, one of the world’s most photogenic places, for a guided tour. Row after row of buildings at its center are covered in blue paint in shades that range from baby blue to aquamarine. The unusual colouring was introduced by Jewish refugees who arrived during the 15th century Spanish Inquisition. There are no cars along the narrow streets, where you can check out vendors selling their wares in the traditional, open-air markets.
Day 11 Rabat/Casablanca
After breakfast and checking out of your Chefchaouen hotel, travel to the capital city of Morocco, Rabat for a guided tour.

The last leg travels the highway to Casablanca where you’ll check into your hotel, enjoying dinner there this evening.
