Day 1: Arrival in Casablanca
We begin the Morocco Tour from Casablanca by picking you up from the airport, port, or your Casablanca hotel. The city is considered Morocco’s economic center and biggest metropolis. This day, we will go to the Hassan I Mosque, Morocco’s largest mosque. It is situated on a peninsula overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on the city’s west shore. Following lunch, we’ll tour the city and go to Casablanca’s beach. A hotel room awaits you for the night.

Following lunch, we go north through Ouazzane to the Rif Mountains’ Blue City of Chefchaouen. The city is well-known for its white and blue-painted houses and lanes. A hotel will be used for an overnight stay.
Day 3: Chefchaouen – the Roman ruins of Volubilis – Meknes – Fes
Following breakfast, feel free to explore the picturesque lanes of Chefchaouen’s blue city. We’ll go to Volubilis to see the old Roman remains.

After exploring the ruins, we drive 30 kilometers to Meknes. The city is recognized as the Ismaili capital and one of Morocco’s imperial cities. We’ll see Bab Al-Mansour, the Sahrij Souani basin, the Royal stable, the granary, and the Moulay Ismail Mausoleum before heading to Fes for the night in a Riad.
Day 4: A guided tour of Fes
Following breakfast, we will see the city’s attractions with a local guide. Fes is one of Morocco’s imperial cities as well as its cultural and religious hub. We begin the day by seeing the Royal Palace entrance and the well-preserved medieval Medina, both of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. You will go to the Blue Gate, also known as Bab Boujloud, which is the gateway to the old Medina.
You’ll enter the Medina to see the Medrasa Bouanania, the Najarine fountain, the Tanneries, and the Quarawiyyin mosque and university, the world’s oldest institution. Following that, we depart Medina for a visit to the Jewish district, commonly known as “the Mellah”. We drive to a historic fortress in the afternoon for a panoramic view over the Medina and the city of Fes. Eventually, return to the Riad for the night.
Day 5: Fes – Ifrane – Azrou – Midelt – Ziz Valley – Merzouga
On our way to Ifrane, we travel via Imouzzer, a town famed for its subzero temperatures, snowfall, and mountain-shaped rural homes. The Barbary Macaques dwell in the cedar forest, which is where we will be heading next. We’ll subsequently go to Midelt, where we’ll be fed lunch. Afterward, we cross the Tizi-n-Tilghmt pass and the Ziz river to reach the Sahara desert.
We arrive at Merzouga in the afternoon and board camels to trek the sandy desert. Following that, you’ll be taken to a high dune to witness the spectacular sunset. We will then proceed to the desert camp, where you will take part in a Berber drum performance under the stars. In the camp, you’ll have dinner and an overnight stay.
Day 6: Merzouga Sahara – Rissani – Erfoud – Todra Gorges – Dades Valley
Get up early to see the dawn over the barren landscape. After breakfast, your driver will be ready for you as you ride camels back to Merzouga. We leave the desert to visit Rissani, the former Tafilalet government headquarters. Rissani is an important regional commercial town with a vibrant souk on several days of the week.
After our visit to Rissani Souk, we travel to Erfoud to see one of the fossilized marble manufacturers. Following that, we proceed to the Todra Gorges via the palm plantations of Touroug and Tinjdad. The course of the Todra river through the mountains has created a vast, red canyon with rock sides. Climbers will like these gorges.
