Detailed Description

Morocco is enchantment at every turn with new experiences every day. The country welcomes you to indulge in a dreamy vacation through the country’s premier family highlights with three very distinctive destinations in one week of travel. Essaouira is a charming old city that is complemented by golden beaches and an easy-going atmosphere. Marrakech will provide your cultural immersion. Then, in the High Atlas, you will savor mountain experiences and local Berber connections with a chance to venture off the beaten path.

Morocco is perfect for families. This is a country that loves visitors. The people are famously friendly and place a large focus on the family unit. Every evening, you will see local families playing on city squares. In remote areas, you will find that local women pick up their children and wave to you from their doorways.

Such a warm welcome always helps a vacation run smoothly. Morocco is also an experiential place for families. You will learn Sufi drumming and journey briefly into its mystical realm. A local cooking class will bring fun in the kitchen and plenty of exotic flavors. There can be downtime and water sports on the coast, hiking in breathtaking mountains, and dozens of famous movie locations within easy reach of each other. The country is perfect for parents who want to continue the intrepid travels of their youth with their new travel companions.

After flying to Essaouira, you will spend two nights in the town, which will include a horseback ride on the beach and a Sufi drumming workshop. Marrakech is only a short distance away, and you can celebrate most of its treasures, from a horse-drawn carriage ride to a cooking class. It is only 90 minutes from the city to the High Atlas mountains, where you will spend a day hiking between Berber villages. Ouarzazate is an offbeat and unknown place to finish, but it is perfect for families because it contains the continent’s largest movie studios. All your tours will be private and customizable, plus you can sink into some of Morocco’s finest accommodation for families.
