Detailed Description

Morocco’s family appeal can be discovered in three distinctive atmospheres. There are the old and soulful cities and the ancient culture that still plays out today in enchantment-wrapped cities. Morocco represents the desert and a sense of adventure; it is a place where you can safely take your children on a camel-back adventure into the wilderness. Many people forget that Morocco also has an incredibly long and alluring Atlantic coastline. Beaches and waves will create downtime, but in Essaouira, you will be immersed in the country’s charming culture. These three destinations fuse to create a perfect ten days in Morocco with your family.

Handcrafted with private family activities and expedient travel logistics, this three-destination Morocco tour can suit families with children of almost all ages. It is especially suited for active children, as you will be heading out on a cultural treasure hunt, learning to surf, discovering the secrets of Gnawa drumming, and camping in the Sahara. Modern hotels will provide you with a contemporary sense of luxury to unwind, while the quiet beaches and pools will create a peaceful and safe atmosphere for your kids to play. Morocco is a vast country, and there is so much that you can fit into ten days. For a family tour, sticking to these three destinations will allow you a well-rounded experience without the stress of continually moving and transferring.

You will fly to Marrakech and spend your first three days with different elements of history and culture. Of all Morocco’s old cities, Marrakech is recommended for families because it has more variety and is easy to escape the bustle when necessary. Essaouira is a two-hour drive away, and it is a sublime old town that will perfectly set you up for three days on the coast. Here, there will be Gnawa drumming and Atlantic surfing along with lazy hours under the sun. A private air charter will transfer you to the Sahara on day seven, where your family will have two days of adventurous experiences amid desert silence and wilderness. Spending your final afternoon and evening in Marrakech will then ensure that you are completely refreshed for the journey home.
