Day 1 Arrival in Casablanca
Welcome to Morocco!

A modern city and the trade capital of Morocco, Casablanca is a magnificent mix of modernism and tradition. It is the largest metropolitan city in the Maghreb and is characterized by elegant buildings, great avenues and unique architectural art forms and Moorish finishes featured throughout the numerous domes and columns.

Overnight in Casablanca.

Included Meal(s): Dinner



Day 2 Casablanca - Rabat
We start our day with a brief tour of Casablanca before heading to Rabat. Nearby we'll visit the impressive Hassan II Mosque, the second largest mosque in the world after Mecca in Saudi Arabia. The mosque is open to
non-Muslims as a daily shared tour, which highlights it's impressive modern interior.

We then continue with a visit to the Museum of Moroccan Judaism in Casablanca, the first of its kind in the Arab world, created by the Jewish Community of Casablanca in 1997 with the support of the Foundation of
Jewish-Moroccan Cultural Heritage.

We then travel by road to Rabat, the nation's capital. Here we visit the Royal Palace, the wild gardens of the Chellah, a 14th-century Merinid necropolis; and walk through the Andalusian Gardens within the walls of the Kasbah of the Oudaya. We visit the Hassan Tower, a huge unfinished minaret built mostly at the end of the 12th century. We also visit the Mohammed V Mausoleum, dedicated to the founder of modern Morocco and grandfather of the current king, as well as the newly-opened Museum of Contemporary Art.

Overnight in Rabat.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner



Day 3 Rabat - Lixus - Tangier
Today we head for Tangier visiting the site of Lixus along the way. The site was a trading center for first the Phoenicians, then the Carthaginians, and finally the Romans, but its history is thought to be much older than these conquerors. The ruins include a temple, theater, acropolis, and baths, and although the site is overgrown, it's highly atmospheric. In nearby Larache we visit the Archaeological Museum, which feature a collection of finds unearthed from Lixus, including an interesting display of perfume bottles and jewellery.

We continue to Tangier and have a tour of the city and its surroundings, including Spartel Cape and the Hercules Caves, with its picturesque views of the Atlantic Ocean and the famed Strait of Gibraltar. We'll explore the Kasbah district located next to the port before heading towards the old Medina. We pass the Grand Sacco and the Mendoubia Park and visit the Petit Sacco, with its multitudes of boutique hotels and riads. This historic location has hosted a variety of famous artists, including Matisse and Paul Bowles.

Overnight in Tangier.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner



Day 4 Tangier - Tetouan - Chefchaouen
Today we travel to Chefchaouen, visiting Tetouan on the way.

Tetouan is a jewel of a town in a striking location at the foot of the Rif Mountains, just a few kilometres from the sea. The ancient medina, a UNESCO World Heritage site, looks like it has not changed in several centuries. The modern centre that abuts it gleams in white, its Spanish facades given a recent facelift. This beautiful city is located on the rift of the mountainous region between the Mediterranean Sea and the Iberian Peninsula.

We continue to Chefchaouen, known worldwide for its medina of shady alleys, whitewashed houses with blue turquoise doors, wrought iron windows and colourful tile-covered roofs, busy squares, and steep alleyways. The best way to discover this holy town is to wander around on foot, taking in the atmosphere. We can sit on the terrace of a cafe and take in the view of the grand Tarik-Ben-Ziad mosque. Examples of Andalusian architecture can be found in the kasbah and its gardens. We'll visit the interesting ethnographic museum, featuring
collections of embroidery and various pieces of clothing; the famous djellaba, the long and ample garment worn by the men and women of North Africa, was created here. For something different we will visit a traditional oil mill (there are more than 1500 of them!). Chefchaouen is also renowned for its basket-making and its pottery.

Overnight in Chefchaouen.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner



Day 5 Chefchaouen - Akchour
Today we travel to Akchour, a beautiful natural area near Chefchaouen, which features stunning mountains gorges and lush vegetation in a country better-known for desert landscapes. Here we're able to enjoy the natural side of Morocco and have a chance to stretch our legs with some light hiking, possibly to a waterfall for which the region is famous.

Our accommodation-or hermitage-comprises several free-standing cabins scattered across whimsical gardens, romantically lit at night. The main house is a diaphanous, open-plan space for dining and hanging out, with a well-stocked library and a music room filled with drums and a baby grand. A modern take on classical Moroccan décor with cactus silk and velvet which complement the traditional flat weave rugs from the surrounding region.

Overnight at Akchour.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner



Day 6 Akchour - Meknes - Fes
Early this morning we depart for Fes (this is a full day!)

Along the way we will make a stop at Meknes, the famed Ismailia capital known for its 40 km long walls and numerous gates. Next we visit Bab Mansour, the Royal Stables, the amazing markets and also the popular Jewish quarter.

Before arriving in Fes we will explore the ruins of the ancient city of Volubilis, the most important and extensive remains of a Roman city in Morocco. This was one of the most distant of the Empire's domain, thanks to the
powerful Berber tribes who showed themselves to be more than a match for the conquering legionnaires. Once one of the most important regions producing grain to feed the voracious Roman appetite, and wild animals to keep the crowds entertained as they tried to devour gladiators in the arena, this prosperous provincial city was home to some 200,000 residents at the height of its glory. The importance of the city is reflected in the Capitoline temple, the Basilica, said to be one of the most beautiful in Africa in its day, and its 1,300 square meter Forum, with sumptuous mosaics still to be seen in some of the most luxurious homes.

We continue to Moulay Idriss, the oldest town in Morocco, founded by Moulay Idriss I in 789, who fled Mecca because of religious and tribal conflicts. It was here that the Idrisid dynasty was founded, and the town has the only round minaret in Morocco.

Finally we arrive in Fes, one of Morocco's four Imperial Cities and the cultural heart of Morocco.

Overnight in Fes.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner



Day 7 Fes: City Tour
Founded in the eighth century by Moulay Idriss I, this imperial capital was a renowned center of medieval learning. Also known as Fes el Bali, this UNESCO World Heritage Site was founded in the 9th century and is home to the world's oldest university. The city of Fes reached its true economic and cultural height in the 13th 14th centuries under the Merinids, when it replaced Marrakech as the capital of the kingdom. Although the political capital of Morocco was transferred to Rabat in 1912, Fes has retained its status as the country's artisan centre.

Today we stroll the labyrinthine old quarter, with its 9,000 narrow lanes, alleys and souks. Artisan workshops in the medina are as active today as they were 100 years ago and strongly contribute to the city?s industrieconomy. Trades such as blacksmithing, leather working, ceramics, silk, tapestries, and sculpting are still practiced in these workshops today.

We proceed to the intricately detailed 14th-century Karouine Mosque, one of the oldest, still-functioning universities in the world, and Nejjarine Square. We also see the Royal Palace and Mellah, the Jewish Quarter.

Overnight in Fes.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner



Day 8 Fes - Erfoud - Merzouga
Today we travel to desert-fringed Erfoud, pausing for lunch in Midelt. En route we marvel at everyday life, passing Berber villages, endless date palm plantations, and the majestic Atlas Mountains. Our journey continues along the dramatic Ziz Gorge, passing the ancient holy city of Rissani, once a stop for the caravans of the 8th century. After a full day of travel we will arrive at our final destination, Erfoud.

Upon arrival at our camp you will witness the sunset from over the desert dunes and enjoy the changing colours of the landscape. If you're up to it you can also ride a camel! This evening 4x4 vehicles take us to the dunes of Erg Chebbi, a strikingly strange natural formation.

Overnight Chergui Sahara Camp, Merzouga.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner



Day 9 Merzouga - Skoura
Today we travel toward Ouarzazate, once a stopping point for African traders travelling to the cities of Morocco and Europe beyond. En route we enjoy views of the High Atlas southern slopes, intersecting the Dades Valley's flourishing crops, irrigation canals, and palm trees. We travel the "Road of a Thousand Kasbahs" and make a stop to visit an amazing, small private museum that houses exhibits showcasing local art, culture and history, before proceeding to Ouarzazate. En-route, we stop at the Dades Gorge; the Dades River provides a life source
to the valley's greenery. Our overnight point is Skoura, one of Morocco's beautiful oases, which offers travellers a chance to rest and enjoy a bit of nature.

Overnight at Skoura.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner



Day 10 Ouarzazate & Ait Ben Haddou
Today we tour nearby Ouarzazate, a city originally built as a French garrison in the 1920s. Today, the city is a regional trade center, known for its pottery and carpets. We see the Taourirt Kasbah, which now consists of simple clay houses and crenelated towers that are beautifully decorated with geometric motifs.

We also visit the village of Telouet, which hosts one of the area's most recognized structures, the palace of the "Lord of the Atlas." This palace was the residence of the once Vizier of Marrakech back in the early 20th Century. Dating back to the period when the Glaoui clan ruled over the Atlas and Marrakech, this palace acted as the family's Headquarters and was situated in a dramatic location on a broad mountain valley, providing sweeping views of the peaks on all sides.

We then head to Ait Ben Haddou, a fortified village or "ksar," ideally positioned along a once frequented, ancient caravan route linking the Sahara and Marrakech. This quaint and picturesque village has been featured in numerous Hollywood film productions.

Overnight at Ait Ben Haddou.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner



Day 11 Ait Ben Haddou - Marrakech
Today's full-day journey takes us over the High Atlas Mountains on the impressive zig-zag of Tiz n Tichka Pass. As we approach Marrakech, the scenery becomes flatter and greener, as the city is the centre of a large palmerie oasis. You will notice an abundance of the pink mud-brick buildings amid this tree-filled city. With it's unique character and charm, Marrakech lures visitors with a hospitable climate and superb location.

This evening we visit the famous Djemma el-Fna in the centre of the city. The Djemma el-Fna is like nowhere else in North Africa; this "Assembly of the Dead," offers a spectacle that is a must-see when visiting Morocco. In the busy square you will witness a carnival of musicians, snake charmers, acrobats, story-tellers, witch doctors, dentists, clowns, monkey's and the like. The enduring smells of the Djemma's food stalls, piled high with platters of speciality cuisine, are well worth a visit just for the experience.

Overnight in Marrakech.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner



Day 12 Marrakech: City Touring
Today we discover the delights of Marrakech, starting in the medina, the old walled section of town that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Marvel at its architectural jewels, including the soaring Koutoubia minaret, which dominates the skyline of Marrakech and can be seen from almost every approach to the city thanks to a longstanding planning ordinance that forbids any other building in the old city to rise above the height of a palm tree.

We also visit the Saadian Tombs, which were only accessible via the mosque next door. However, in 1917 they were opened to the public and can now be accessed via a narrow passage that leads to an enclosed garden watched over by two mausoleums that include more than one hundred mosaic-decorated tombs.

Next is the El-Bahia Palace. This 19th century palace is elaborate in its decoration and was built over a period of seven years for Ba Ahmed, the son of the Grand Vizier Si Moussa. There are row after row of apartments that once housed Ahmed's harem, a trapezoidal garden, a huge tiled courtyard, and many hidden treasures, both in the form of antique objects d'art and the palace's convergence of Andalusian and Moorish architecture.

This afternoon/evening, we enjoy a Moroccan cooking class at a farm near the city. We prepare starters, tagines and desserts. We'll also have a guided walk in the village to meet the local people.

Overnight in Marrakech.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner



Day 13 Marrakech - Essaouira
Today our journey takes us to the Atlantic coast and Essaouira, one of the most picturesque towns in the country. On arrival we'll dive into it's history and see how as an original Phoenician trading post, it prospered during the Roman era as citizens extracted the Tyrian purple colour from a local shellfish. Explore the fortifications that ring the city; built by the Portuguese, the walls are inherent to the charm of Essaouira.

You will have time to see the other attractions including the port, where a daily supply of fresh fish can be found, and a tremendous beach that stretches away to the south. The easy-going nature of the town, the medina, the dramatic fortifications and the beach, have created an atmosphere quite different from the rest of the country.

Overnight in Essaouira.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner



Day 14 Essaouira - Casablanca
Today we travel by road back to Casablanca, a journey of about 6 hours.

Overnight in Casabanca.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner



Day 15 Departure from Casablanca
Airport transfer and departure.

Trip Info
Trip Info

 

Inclusions
Breakfast and dinner daily (hotels and local restaurants). All guiding/leadership, gratuities for local guides & drivers, transport, accommodation, sightseeing and entrance fees for sites noted as 'visited' in the detailed itinerary. Airport transfers for land & air customers


Exclusions
International airfare to/from the tour. Tour Leader gratuity, lunches, drinks, personal items (phone, laundry, etc), departure taxes, international air taxes (if applicable). Airport transfers for Land Only customers. Optional trip cancellation insurance.


Seasonality and Weather
In early June one should be prepared for heat in some locations, especially inland and in desert areas. Near the sea and in the mountains we'll enjoy cooler conditions. Given the overall climate of Morocco, which is semi-arid, the possibility is limited but perhaps still possible in the north and on the coast. A light rain shell is recommended for all times.

This tour is scheduled for a lower seasonality, and for when school in North America is out of session.


Transport and Travel Conditions
Road transport by private air-conditioned motor coach, 24-36 seats depending on ultimate group size (see 'group size').

Though this is not a strenuous tour per se, we do have numerous walking tours of towns/cities/site on uneven surfaces. One must be prepared to be on one's feet, walking at a leisurely pace for up to 3 hours at a time, and to walk short distances, ie from the hotel to dinner.

While the trip overall is not particularly physical, it is ambitious with plenty of moving around and full days of travel and activities. Traffic and road conditions may make some journeys seem longer than they should be according to the actual distance. The scenery along the way, however, is appealing, and we'll have time to stop and learn about the areas we are passing through and enjoy the commentary of our guide as we travel along. While we don't schedule any formal lectures per se, our strong educational content is owing to our many on-site and real-time guided visits in all the places we are visiting.

Our trip rating level "2" reflects the 'busy-ness' of our program, full days, heat, and limitations for those requiring/insisting upon very specific dietary requirements.

Am I suitable for this tour? Please refer to our self-assessment form.


Accommodation
Our accommodation choices for this tour range from modern, Western-style hotels, to charming cabins, traditional 'riads', and a tented camp with plenty of charm and atmosphere. All have private bath facilities.

All properties are rated 3-4 star; please click on 'Map & Hotels' tab on this page for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions
FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I make a reservation? How and when do I pay?
The easiest way to make a reservation is to contact us by telephone. You can also book online through our website. A non-refundable $500 deposit is payable at the time of booking; if a reservation is made within 60 days, full payment is required. Some trips require a larger deposit. If international airline bookings require a non-refundable payment in order to secure space or the lowest available fare, we will require an increase in deposit equal to the cost of the ticket(s). Early enrolment is always encouraged as group size is limited and some trips require greater preparation time. Once we have received your deposit, we will confirm your space and send you a confirmation package containing your trip itinerary, any visa/travel permit related documents, invoice, clothing and equipment recommendations, general information on your destination(s), and forms for you to complete, sign and return to us. Your air e-tickets (if applicable), final hotel list, final trip itinerary, and instructions on how to join your tour, will be sent approximately 2-3 weeks prior to departure.
I am a single who prefers my own room. What is a single supplement?
All of our tours have a single supplement for those who want to be guaranteed their own room at each location. This supplement is a reflection of the fact that most hotels around the world do not discount the regular twin-share rate for a room by 50% for only one person occupying a room. Most hotels will give a break on the price, but usually in the range of 25-30% of the twin-share rate. This difference, multiplied by each night, amounts to the single supplement. The conventional amount can also vary from country to country and some destinations are more expensive than others for single occupancy. In order to be "single friendly," the supplements we apply are not a profit centre for us and we do our best to keep them as reasonable as possible. On most tours we limit the number of singles available, not to be punitive, but rather because many hotels allow for only a limited number of singles; some smaller hotels at remote locations also have a limited number of single rooms available. Please note that most single rooms around the world are smaller than twin-share rooms and will likely have only one bed.
What about cancellations, refunds, and transfers?
Should you need to cancel your trip, you must notify us in writing, by letter, e-mail, or by fax immediately. Deposits are non-refundable, though if you cancel more than 90 days prior to tour departure date, the deposit is transferable to any other tour taken within 12 months of the original tour start date, minus a per person transfer fee (some tours have a 100% nonrefundable/ nontransferable deposit; you will be informed of this at the time of booking). Less than 90 days prior to departure, all monies paid are 100% non-refundable, nontransferable. Name changes are not permitted. Insurable risks may be covered under trip cancellation insurance policies, if purchased. We will not grant partial refunds for any unused trip arrangements—voluntarily missed meals, sightseeing, transport, etc—after the trip has commenced, or any refunds to trip members who do not complete any portion of the itinerary for whatever reason. All air tickets are non-refundable and valid only for the flight(s) indicated. We may cancel departures if forced to do so by circumstances such as war, civil or political unrest or what is commonly referred to as force majeure. In these instances we will refund all passengers in full if cancellation takes place more than 60 days prior to tour start date. If cancellation occurs within the 60 day period, we will offer to postpone your trip to another departure of the same tour code within 12 months of the original tour start date; or, if circumstances do not permit, an alternative will be offered at that time. We will not be responsible for costs associated with re-issuance or extension of visas, airline change fees, or for any compensation. We strongly recommend that all travellers purchase trip cancellation insurance, either through Adventures Abroad or elsewhere, as this may provide coverage under such circumstances. If we cancel your tour due to insufficient enrolment, we will endeavour to find an alternative tour for you. If this is not acceptable, all monies paid will be refunded in full and will constitute full settlement. We will not be responsible for any expenses incurred, such as visas, vaccinations, independently purchase airfare, or any compensation. Notice of cancellation due to insufficient enrolment in any program will be given approximately 60 days prior to departure.
Do you have a shared accommodation program?
Yes! If you are single traveller and are willing to share, we will do our best to pair you with a same-gender roommate. On most of our tours, if we fail to pair you, we will absorb the single supplement fee and you will default to a single room at no extra charge. At some destinations, however, where single rooms are not significantly discounted, or not at all, we may apply a "mandatory" single in the event that we cannot find you a share partner. This is usually 50% of the usual supplement, but can be as much as 100%. If applicable, this proviso will be noted on each tour page on this website, on your invoice, and in our tour date/price book (available for download under "Resources").

 

What People are Saying
Elaine D.
Coupeville, WA - US
Torres del Paine and our local tour guide were great. Also, I really was amazed at our guide's knowledge while visiting Perito Moreno glacier. Seeing it calve was fantastic. The hotels were all very good. Our tour leader was very easygoing but always aware and on top of things. His great sense of humor helps to diffuse any bumps in relations. Truly value his experience and great natural way with people. I would recommend this company and tour to anyone!
Michael N.
St Albert, AB - CA
We tried to plan a trip to Italy for several years and this tour exceeded our expectations. We never felt rushed yet we covered a lot of the major sites and museums and still had time to do a few of our own things Our tour guide Andrew was amazing and we would highly recommend him and this tour. November turned out to be a wonderful time to go because, although it did rain and was cloudy,the museums and many sites were not crowded at all. Our local guide at the Uffuzi gallery in Florence was amazed that there were so few people. He told us that he had never been in the gallery that holds the Michelangelo painting by himself.. ever! Italy is an amazing country to visit and this tour covers the highlights with a fantastic guide, delicious food and charming hotels, all arranged for you.
Alan A.
St Agatha, ON - CA
An insightful trip into a major cultural event, Day of the Dead. As well you visit significant archeological sites and churches. If you have any interest in Mexican culture, beyond beaches and tequila, this is the trip for you. You will gain so much knowledge of the history and struggles of the Mexican people. I can't recommend this trip enough.
Eleanora M.
Kingston, ON - CA
Having a narrow and perhaps stereotypical view, influenced by the media. I was blown away by what I experienced:Turkey is a beautiful country with modern, safe cities,dramatic scenery, spectacular mosques and palaces, amazing well-preserved ruins of Greek and Roman antiquity. A melting pot of Muslim, European, Greek, Roman cultures, fabulous food and warm friendly people... so many World heritage sites I would encourage others to visit Turkey.
Arleen C.
Sagamore Hills, OH - US
I had been searching for several years for a tour that included Paraguay and was delighted to find this one. The mission visits were excellent, in terms of both the sites and the explanations. The Pipore Yerba Mate tour was terrific and I loved our guide there. Iguazu Falls was spectacular and again, we had a very good guide. Our trip to Purmamarca was surprising and very good. The buses and vans were very good. The hydrofoil trip was good also. All the dinners were wonderful, with excellent food and in lovely locations. The hotels were very good. Overall it was an excellent tour, with many interesting destinations.
Erle J.
Gloucester, ON - CA
A good tour with lots of interesting sites and spectacular scenery. I really learned a lot about these 3 countries and Latin America. I most enjoyed the Jesuit Missions, Iguazu Falls, and the Safari to the Clouds. All the hotels were very good. Meals on the tour were very good. I really liked our tour leader ordering appetizers to be shared which allowed me to try more local foods. Local Guides were either very good or excellent.
Merle H.
Glenview, IL - US
We loved the whole trip and the surprises of touring in between trains. Also some of the little towns for lunch were a delight. The food on this trip was exceptionally great. All the meal choices and ordering off the menu was perfect. Our tour leader ordered tapas for us and a few planned meals were great too. If we hadn't walked as much as we did, we would have gained weight. The best thing was that all the hotels were centrally located and we could walk easily to highlight places and good restaurants. Perfect. You did an outstanding job selecting these hotels. Loved the train (and dashing for two of them). Had never done train travel before and the stations and facilities were mind blowing. First class seats were really nice. Love your guides and quality of local guides. Love AA.
Linda R.
Thunder Bay, ON - CA
We enjoyed the scenic west coast of Ireland the most. In particular, Killarney, Dingle peninsula, Cliffs of Moher, Aran Islands. Also the Giant's Causeway. The local guides in Dublin, Londonderry and Belfast were very good. We had a small van for our small group and it worked out very well. The meals were tasty and substantial. There was generally a good variety of selections. A very good tour.
Vera G.
Victoria, BC - CA
I loved the Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula and Aran Islands. Belfast, Dublin and Killarney were the best cities. The hotels were good and well located. Hotel staff were excellent and rooms were clean and comfortable. Another great Adventures Abroad trip! You never disappoint!
Steven H.
Vancouver, BC - CA
By-and-large the sights, locales, neighbourhoods, etc were extremely interesting. The bus was great! A good size for the group size. It gave us a good sense of a 'home-on-the-road'. I didn't know what to expect for meals and was very pleased with what was presented. Our tour leader, Subash's, knowledge of 'everything Indian', the customs, sights, culture, etc was inexhaustible. He was the perfect person to introduce us to the culture, people, sights and history of India. His insights into the Hindu philosophy were deep, informative and colourful. I consider myself luck to have had him as our guide (almost a mentor). I felt that the quality of the hotels were very good and more often than not, higher than expected. The uniqueness of the two 'Orchard' settings and the desert 'camp' tents were quite fun and very comfortable. Overall: Highly Enjoyable, Very Well Managed, Well thought out Itinerary, Excellent Tour Guide.
