Casablanca, or ‘Casa’ as the locals call it is the largest and most populated city in Morocco; it is also the busiest port and its economic and industrial capital accounts for more than half of the country’s industrial output. The atmosphere is more cosmopolitan than in other parts of the country, with Western dress and fashions predominating. Start discovering Morocco’s largest city and economic capital,

Casablanca is the best representation of the modern nation. A brief highlight tour will include those at Pl Mohammed V, and new public buildings include the Grand Theater de Casablanca. The city’s handsome Moresque buildings, which meld French-colonial design and traditional Moroccan style, are seen best in the downtown area, the quartier habous and in the beachside suburb of Ain Diab, and the flamboyant building of Hassan II Mosque (interior). The Hassan II Mosque, sitting in a picturesque location on the sea. Inaugurated in 1993, its minaret is the tallest structure in Morocco and the tallest minaret in the world. While the exterior and surrounding area are impressive, what makes this mosque unique is that it is one of the few mosques in the country that non-Muslims can enter. Continue to your Rabat hotel via highway for overnight.

Day 2


After breakfast we will visit Rabat with guide. In the afternoon relax and wander on your own. Perhaps a visit to the art museum or history museum.

Day 3

Rabat to Tangier

After the breakfast we will start to explore Morocco’s political and administrative capital. A clean central beach, an intact and evocative Kasbah, and an attractive walled medina that is far less touristy than in other large Moroccan cities. Our tour starts from the Mohammed V and Hassan II Mausoleum, the landmark of Rabat, the Hassan Tower, and one of the oldest mosques in Morocco. The Kasbah of the oudayas, Rabat historic citadel occupies the site of the original Rabat (fortress-monastery) that gave the city its name. After the tour, drive to Tangier on the Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts. Overnight in Tangier.

Day 4

Tangier City Tour

After the pickup at your hotel in Tangier, we’ll take a ride through different neighborhoods and surrounding areas, including several stops at amazing viewpoints, a short break at Cape Spartel where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean Sea, and a visit to the mythical Caves of Hercules.
The second portion of the tour consists of an extensive walk through the maze of narrow streets and alleyways of the Kasbah (fortress), for insight into a rich architectural heritage that includes a 15th-century city wall, and numerous buildings of Arab-Andalusian style, that have inspired great artists and painters among them Eugene Delacroix, Henri Matisse.
Then heading for the Medina (old town), which represents a major center of interest to get a taste of the local culture and lifestyle through the ambiance of its busy markets and streets, communal ovens, steam baths, and artisanal shops. and lively squares. It is also home to an important Jewish and Christian heritage. The tour also provides the opportunity to experience the genuine Moroccan cuisine and the vibrant atmosphere of the souks where craftsmen and merchants make/sell their traditional items. Perhaps check out the Café Hafa or the Cafe Baba, both hangouts of Paul Bowles and William Burroughs. Your driver and guide will take you back to your hotel.

Day 5

Tangier to Chefchaouen

Today, after your breakfast in Tangier we will head to Chefchaouen via Tetouan, a small town near Tangier. In Tetouan we will have an hour to discover the old medina and take pictures of the most famous sights in the town. Then we continue the drive to Chefchaouen, there you will have the rest of the day at your riad inside the old medina with a beautiful view of the Riff mountains. Overnight at the riad.

Day 6

Chefchaouen City Tour

Start this part of Morocco tour after breakfast in Chefchaouen with a local certified guide. You can have lunch in the famous Outa el Hammam square at an open-air café. Set against a wide valley and nestled between two peaks in the stunning Rif Mountains, the isolated town of Chefchaouen is a surprising delight. Much of Chefchaouen was recreated by Andalusia refugees escaping the Reconquista, so its striking blue and whitewashed houses, red-tiled roofs, and artistic doorways give it the feel of the Spanish hills. Spend the rest of the day exploring the sights, sounds, and smells of the medina, the shops in the square selling woven goods, painted wooden home pieces and small sweets, and, most importantly, tasting the town’s famous goat’s cheese. Herds of goats wander the sparse hillsides surrounding Chefchaouen, and their tasty cheese is sold in large fresh rounds in the street markets. Within the plaza is the walled fortress of the Kasbah, visit the ethnographic museum, and take in wonderful views from the rooftop. This is a small and very safe city you can wander on your own, also the square at the heart of the town is really an ideal place to relax.

Day 7

Chefchaouen to Fes

In the morning we will take the road from Chefchaouen to Meknes. We will drive along the biggest agriculture fields in Morocco and arrive near lunchtime in Meknes. This city has all the winding narrow medina streets and grand buildings that it warrants as an Imperial City and the one-time home of the Moroccan sultanate. Remnants of no less than three sets of fortifications, ingeniously incorporated into the city’s road networks, make it clear how important this city once was. The king’s tomb sits at the heart of what remains of the original imperial city, flanked by an amazing royal granary, and the magnificent Bab el-Mansour. Then off to Volubilis to explore the UNESCO-designated Roman ruins. Only about half of the 40-hectare site at Volubilis has been excavated. The monuments of interest such as The Capitol, Basilica, and 1300-sq-metre Forum were as typical for the times built on a high point. The Capitol, dedicated to the Triad of Jupiter, Juno, and Minerva, dates to AD 218; the Basilica and Forum lie immediately north. After the tour of Volubilis, continue to Fez and overnight.

Day 8

Fes City Tour

Welcome to Fes, the most monumental of the Imperial Cities. The medina of fès el-Bali (Old Fez), a World Heritage site, is an assault on the senses, a warren of narrow lanes and covered bazaars bursting with aromatic food stands, and craft workshops, mosques, and an endless parade of people. You will walk along narrow, uneven alleyways, with daylight filtering down from above high gray walls, flanked by tables heaped with spices, dried fruits, fresh fish or silk, and leather garments. Residents of Fes have been selling goods and working metal by hand in the medina since medieval times, and today’s generation works in the same stalls as their ancestors did. And everywhere, there are cats, scrounging, prowling, and sleeping – the mascots of the medina. Here, in the heart of Fes, the old and the new constantly collide – the man driving the donkeys and mules is likely to be chatting on his mobile phone, while the ancient skyline is punctuated equally with satellite dishes and minarets. The city tour will include; bab boujloud, mellah, and jamaa Al-karaouine, the oldest continually operating university in the world. Founded in 859, virtually every surface of its quiet inner courtyard is decorated with highly detailed, delicately carved geometric patterns. Entering this graceful place hidden in the medina lifts a veil on an ancient culture that once kept outsiders at arm’s length. The Medersa Bouanania complex is the spiritual heart of Fes and of Morocco. The Chouara tanneries are the city’s most iconic sights (and smells), offering a unique window into the pungent, natural process of producing world-class leather by methods that have changed little since medieval times. Time permitting, we will also visit clay workshops, artisan quarters, the souks of the largest and oldest medina in Morocco, and Batha Museum (a former Royal Palace converted into a museum in 1916 with over 6,000 collections)

Then off to the beautiful Jardin Majorelle. Yves Saint Laurent gifted the Jardin Majorelle to Marrakech, the city that adopted him, in 1966. Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Berge bought the electric-blue villa and its garden to preserve the vision of its original owner, landscape painter Jacques Majorelle, and keep it open to the public. The garden began cultivating in 1924 and thanks to Marrakshi ethnobotanist Abderrazak, the psychedelic desert mirage of 300 plant species from five continents continues to be preserved. The garden is also home to the Berber Museum, which houses a small but spectacular collection of authentic Moroccan garments, weapons and jewelry, dating to the 19th century and before. The craftsmanship and artistry, particularly of the women’s dresses, had surely not been lost on Yves Saint Laurent, who arranged to have his ashes scattered in the garden, where a small monument marks his passing. After lunch at a local restaurant in the medina, you begin your stroll through the labyrinth of narrow streets in the Medina and visit the famous Souks, selling everything from leather clothing to spices.

Day 17

Marrakech to Essaouira

This morning you will be met at your hotel and transferred to Essaouira. On the way, you will stop at an Argan oil cooperative where you will enjoy the experience of the different traditional processes of oil making with the local ladies. First of all, the women sit armed with a base rock and a hand-held sharp stone to start the extraction process. They crack each Argan fruit to reach the kernels. The women roast the kernels slightly to bring out the flavor, then let them aside to cool down before they ground them into a very thick brown oily liquid using a traditional rock grinder (Azerg). Soon after that, one of the women in the cooperative would mix the oily paste with warm water before hand- kneading in order to bring the pure, unfiltered Argan oil up to the surface to finally be able to filter it. The brown dough-like hunk (local term: Tazegmount), left after the extraction procedure, is protein-rich and usually used for effective traditional cosmetic recipes as well as for animal feed. You will learn all these methods starting from harvesting the good quality fruits to the extraction and making Argan oil products. Enjoy a Berber lunch at the cooperative then continue your way to Essaouira where you will enjoy rest of the day at leisure. Overnight at the hotel.

Day 18

Essaouira Free Day

Breakfast at the hotel. Essaouira, a relatively small, easily navigable beach city, is ideal for a free day. Essaouira has got a distinct multicultural feel, resulting from the large Portuguese, French, and Jewish populations that once called it home. Its mild climate and expansive stretches of ocean sand also place it among Morocco’s top beach towns. Essaouira’s walled medina was added to UNESCO’s World Heritage list in 2001. Its well-preserved, late-18th-century fortified layout is a prime example of European military architecture in North Africa. For the visitor, the mellow atmosphere, narrow winding streets lined with colorful shops, whitewashed houses and heavy old wooden doors make it a wonderful place to stroll. Overnight at the hotel.

Day 19

Essaouira to Casablanca

After breakfast, transfer to Casablanca via Safi, Oualidia and el Jadida. Safi was under protectorate by the Portuguese empire from 1488 to 1541, while the fortress built to protect the city, under Portuguese rule, is still there today.
