This luxurious week in Morocco is a slow-paced journey into a distant era and an exotic immersion into a country’s imperial cities and traditions. Handcrafted for senior travelers, this one-week route will lead you to the major city highlights, including sensual souks, 9th-century sandstone architecture, caravanserai, and artistic palaces and gardens. Specialist guides will lead the way as you bask in Morocco’s heritage and some of the world’s most exquisite and unchanged cities.
Chefchaouen – Enchantment in a Blue Mountain Town
Flying into Tangier allows for flexibility at the beginning of your one-week Morocco tour. There is not too much left of the famous port city, but it is a convenient gateway to Chefchaouen, which is the most charming place to spend a night anywhere in Morocco. Chefchaouen is small, and you can walk around the medina in less than 30 minutes, so it will be a comforting first stop after your flight. You can sit back on the main square, Place Outa el Hammam, and watch the world go by as a call rings evocatively from mosque minarets.

Morocco is not a sightseeing powerhouse. You do not need to spend hours meandering between attractions to experience what the city provides. Morocco is alive in its old-world atmosphere, and you can feel and live out the tradition just by sitting on a balcony and absorbing all the sounds and smells. Here, you can travel slowly and absorb four very different imperial cities in just one week of travel. Handcrafted for senior travelers, this one-week luxury tour will lead you behind the scenes in five exceptional destinations with local guides that lead the way to exotic atmospheres while providing intriguing narratives.
Over seven days, you will travel from the far north to Morocco’s heart with stops at all four imperial cities. You will fly to Tangier and begin your laid-back adventure with a night in Chefchaouen, which is an ancient mountain town where all the streets are painted shades of blue. It is a miraculous sight and will prove an easy way to be introduced to the local culture before experiencing the big souks and walled cities. Fabulous Roman ruins will mark your journey to Meknes, which is the most artisanal of the old cities and a place where every building is like a gallery and each street a journey through color.
Fes is the largest of the old cities, and you will be staying deep within the city walls and enveloped by a vibrant range of smells, sounds, and sights. You will be able to feel the ambiance at every turn. On day four, you will make a short stop in Rabat, which is home to a charming town and contemporary world outlook, before continuing to Casablanca. Here, the Hassan II Mosque is a building worthy of comparison to any of the world’s most iconic religious structures.
Marrakech will be your final stop, and it is a city of glowing red sandstone and enigmatic souks. Here, tradition seems to imbue every corner. From storytellers to drummers and from its Jewish Quarter to its Islamic schools, Marrakech preserves its old-world harmony. For two nights, you will be staying in a converted palace, where you will be immersed in a realm of five-century-old designs. With two days, you can discover most of the city’s highlights without giving up on the laid-back pace that defines your one-week Morocco tour. While the sights are many, this is a country of endearing architecture, a charming culture, and delicious cuisine.
