Welcome to Morocco, a country whose culture is ingrained in the landscape and emanates from the cuisine. Arrive in Casablanca where your private guide and transfer are waiting. The city sits at the country’s western edge, against the quiet lull of the Atlantic Ocean. Palm trees border wide boulevards. The trees sway in the delicate sea breeze. The sweet scent of coconut mixes with the salty sea air. Historic neighborhoods edge contemporary Art Deco buildings erected during French colonialism. A cosmopolitan ambiance can be felt through the cityscape, from award-winning restaurants to contemporary art galleries displaying aesthetics that shy away from the more classic Moroccan images.
Hassan II Mosque looks out over the cobalt water. The ocean laps at the small wall that pushes against the ocean. The minaret stands 689 feet tall, the largest minaret in the world. The sunlight glints off of the water and inside of the mosque you can see the ocean wading beneath the glass floor of the main hall. The walls contain an opulent shimmer, constructed with decadent hand crafted marble. Over 100,000 worshipers can pray inside the mosque, with 25,000 inside the main hall. Walk through the multi-colored arches and notice the engraved floral designs. The elegance of the mosque reveals Morocco’s contemporary connection to its boisterous and flamboyant heritage.

Your custom tailored tour, arranged by one of Zicasso's Morocco travel agents, begins with your arrival in Casablanca. Your private guide and transfer meet you at the airport and escort you through the city en route to the modern capital of Rabat. The relaxed pace but historic streets provide early insight into the country’s unique combination of contemporary life and celebrated heritage. Make your way to Tangier, located on the Strait of Gibraltar, across from Spain. The city is separated into the modern and the antique, both showing a different side of the famous city, from bustling markets to an energetic port.
Chefchaouen is located in the mountains and glows with sky blue coloration. The peaceful city has a thriving culture based on traditional crafts. Make your way to Fez, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, known for its medieval architecture and craftsmen culture. Journey through scenic cedar forests and across the Middle Atlas Mountains to the desert town of Erfoud where a 4x4 takes you into the Sahara Desert to view the breathtaking sand dunes at Erg Chebbi. Enjoy the sunset, starlight, and sunrise over the exquisite landscape. Make your way through the oasis around the Ziz Valley and visit the desert villages encircled by powerful walls. The towns are almost camouflaged by their coloration standing against the desert landscape. Witness Berber Villages and roads that wind around the gorge before arriving in Marrakech. The city ignites the connection to this captivating culture.
The medina erupts with activity and legendary stories. The High Atlas Mountains contain small villages and a Kasbah with exceptional views of the surrounding landscape: from lush sloping foothills to rugged purple mountaintops. At the seaside town of Essaouira, you find ancient fortifications with a bohemian ambiance. With a day at leisure you can horseback ride along the beach or windsurf. You can even go wine tasting at a local, celebrated vineyard. Return to Casablanca and enjoy your final day along La Corniche or meandering along the opulent art galleries. Your private transfer escorts you to the airport for your flight, but the magic of your Moroccan adventure continues.
