Detailed Description

Morocco is quick to charm its guests. Artistic cities showcase the country’s beauty, Arab and Berber cultures provide an instant welcome, and small towns evoke the enchantment of yesteryear. This country is immersive, especially when you venture deep inside walled cities. It can also be very escapist as you cross sand dunes on a 4WD Sahara adventure and relax in luxury in hilltop towns. Handcrafted to celebrate the very best of Morocco, this exciting 12-day journey will reveal places, such as Moulay Idriss, Zagora, Casablanca, Asilah, and Tangier. You will be provided with private tours across the country’s highlights with local guides that will unveil secrets in ten exquisite destinations.

Your adventure will begin in Marrakech, where souks and storytellers will be the iconic highlights of your first day. With two nights here, you will be able to explore the key highlights and to soak in the atmosphere before traveling to Casablanca. Here, you will witness contemporary Islamic art and the laid-back tones of an amber-hued city. Rabat is a mysterious imperial city and a perfect stop en route to Asilah, which is a coastal town that feels more Greece than Morocco and where you will spend a night. Tangier is packed with iconic scenes, and you will spend two nights in Chefchaouen, which is a blue-walled town nestled on a hillside. This incredible locale will prove to be an idyllic place to rest in the middle of your vacation.

Volubilis will then immerse you in Roman times before Moulay Idriss reveals the calm-hearted spirituality at the core of Moroccan culture. From here, you will explore Fes and Meknes, which are incredible imperial cities that are also entirely unique. One hosts a variety of mazy streets, and the other is an artistic paradise of visual wonder. You will complete your incredible 12 days in Morocco with a laid-back two days in the Sahara Desert on a private 4WD drive adventure. This excursion will lead you to the dunes, where boutique camps will provide you with a luxurious place to rest beneath the stars.

Throughout your entire vacation, you will stay in luxurious accommodations and will have private transfers to and from all destinations. As with most of our trips, this itinerary is entirely customizable, so you can adjust nearly anything and everything to better suit your moods and interests once you are in Morocco.
