This ancient kingdom is where Africa meets Europe, and so this is a land of cultural and scenic contrasts with exotic old-world charm that delights every visitor. We will see medieval walled cities rich in culture and history, with palaces, mosques and local markets.
The Moroccan people form a vital part of the country’s attraction. Here, the traditions of a rich culture live on in the dress, food, customs, festivities and the way in which visitors are received. Famous for their hospitality and friendliness, Moroccans still welcome strangers according to age-old codes of ceremony. The best place for people watching is the markets, where the shopping is colourful in both the wares available and also the crowds in the local bazaars with acrobats, snake charmers, water sellers and the occasional camel vying for your attention.
Our tour will take in all the country’s highlights as we visit romantic Casablanca, imperial Marrakech, the oasis of the Ourika Valley, the impressive Atlas Mountains, the desert plateau of Ouarzazate, the sand dunes of Merzouga, the historical city of Meknes, the spiritual centre of Fez, cosmopolitan Tangier and the Royal City of Rabat. The wonderful scenery along the way includes snow-capped mountain peaks, deserts with sand dunes and beautiful fertile valleys.
Join us and discover all the enchantment Morocco has to offer.
