Detailed Description

Silk and tapestry workshops line the narrow streets of the old city. The soft and smooth sheets dangle from the doors and walls on display. Your private chef slices and dices figs and oranges as you follow along in your own personal cooking course. Taste the sumptuous flavors of homemade tagine with a panorama of the Atlas Mountains. This 9-day culinary vacation is an adventure for your senses, filling your palate daily with the majestic flavors of Morocco. Settle into moonlit courtyards and immerse yourself in unparalleled Moroccan flavor.

Arrive in Casablanca and your personal guide meets you at the airport. Venture through the boulevards and esplanades that provide the ambiance of the most cosmopolitan city in Morocco. New delights are brought to you daily, beginning with breakfast. The various flavors that accompany a traditional meal range from fruit and honey to a variety of breads. Your private transfer meets you at the restored traditional mansion and takes you on your way to Fez. En route, you visit the 17th century capital of Morocco at Meknes and the nearby Roman ruins of Volubilis.

After a mouthwatering breakfast, the city of Fez is yours to explore on a private guided tour. The medieval city retains its antique charm along the medina and the old city gates. A half-day cooking tour guides you through the marketplace and teaches you the delicate, yet powerful flavors of traditional Moroccan cuisine. En route to Marrakech, you stop in Beni Mellal, a city that rests in the shade of an elegant mountain. A fortress stands on the cliff and continues to protect the city. Once in Marrakech, your guide meets you at your riad to enjoy the energetic neighborhoods on a full day tour.

The distinct culture of the city creates an ambiance shrouded in legend. The following day you venture into the Atlas Mountains to visit a repurposed fortress, whose strong encircling walls now house a luxurious hotel. Indulge in your surroundings with a postcard view of the mountain panorama. Follow your chef’s lead to create a three-course meal with the learned flavors of the country. Valley D’Argon lies between Marrakech and the beachside city of Essaouira. Visit the valley for a unique tour of a Moroccan winery. Your private transfer will soon meet you at the Riad and escort you to the airport. Although you are traveling home, you are taking the treasured flavors of the country with you.
