Detailed Description

The sights of Spain and Morocco are remarkable, from the shimmering royal palaces, and world-famous art galleries to the majestic mosques, and 12th-century souks. These two countries have some of the finest architecture and impressions anywhere in the world, including Granada’s Alhambra, which is just one timeless example. However, the best of Spain and Morocco isn’t just the postcard sights, it’s the vibrant atmosphere. These are countries with their own distinctive culture, one that is based on centuries-old traditions with modern day influences. They are countries of unique culture and design, countries with an ineffable feeling that you will begin to understand once you are immersed in the feeling of the land.

Handcrafted for private luxury travel, this itinerary includes six days in Spain and six in Morocco. Hotels will be carefully chosen to reflect the feeling and style of the destinations you are exploring. All tours will be private and led by insider guides who can customize each day depending on your energy levels and mood. These 12 days will cover a little of all the classic vacation paradigms, with history and culture meeting food and nature. You’ll meet the locals to discover the hidden neighborhoods and lose yourself in the old cities, a great part of the adventure in Spain and Morocco.

Begin your journey in Madrid before taking the high-speed train to Seville, where you will attend a flamenco performance at the home of the traditional dance. Then, you will be driven across Andalusia to visit the Moorish Pueblos Blancos (White Villages) on route to Granada, where the famous Alhambra is just the start of the old beauty. Afterward, you’ll fly from nearby Malaga to Casablanca, followed by a half-day tour that takes you to Marrakesh. Spend three nights in this seductive old city, where history and Middle Eastern culture will surround you, as this city of heart and soul arouse all of your senses. After the energy of Marrakesh, you will end this luxury tour at a High Atlas spa retreat, as you connect with the Berber lifestyles while you savor the silence of a remote world.
