ROMTravel - The Best of Morocco

A mud brick fortified town.

        

Our journey begins in Casablanca with lunch at Rick’s Cafe. We’ll visit the capital, Rabat, notorious Tangier, charming Chefchaouen, where many houses are painted a distinctive blue, Roman Volubilis, and Fes, which feels like Morocco from the past. We will drive through the Atlas Mountains for the amazing scenery and spend a night in a luxurious camp in the Sahara. We’ll also stay in a castle-like ksar. In Marrakech we’ll enjoy the highlights including Jemaa el Fna Square at night, the Moroccan Arts Museum and the Majorelle Gardens.

Highlights of the tour include:

  • Tour of the Hassan II mosque in Casablanca, one of the largest mosques in the world open to non-Muslims.
  • Dinner at the historic Villa Josephine in Tangier.
  • Private tour of the Karaouine University Library in Fes, thought to be the world’s oldest existing library.
  • Visit to Ait Ben Haddou, a historic and picturesque ksar (fortified village) on the caravan route to Marrakech.
  • Lunch at the famous La Mamounia Hotel in Marrakech.
