What's included in this trip
Best of Morocco SummaryAdd to Shortlist
With a bustling old medina, Art-Deco buildings, contemporary art galleries and one of Africa's biggest ports, Casablanca is a city of all ages.
The great walls of Rabat enclose a largely modern city with a laidback atmosphere, but there's still plenty of historic sights to remind visitors of its colourful past. A relaxed city with an array of historical sites on its doorstep, Meknes has a fascinating Old Town and wonderful labyrinthine streets.
Dating from antiquity, Volubilis is now a site of wonderfully preserved Roman ruins near the town of Moulay Idriss. Being in Fes is like stepping back in time. Stately city walls, labyrinthine medinas and a wonderfully preserved Old City has made Fes one of Morocco's favourite destinations.
With a history of mining and agriculture, Midelt is a picturesque town nestled between the High and Middle Atlas mountains with many lovely, sand-coloured buildings.
A vast sea of shifting wind-swept sand that's formed into picturesque undulating crests and valleys, the Erg Chebbi dunes are one of the world's classic landscapes.
Located on the remote east side of the High Atlas Mountains, Todra Gorge is a spectacular canyon with sheer rock walls up to 300m high.
Sitting on a hilltop and looking unchanged since the 11th century, Ait Benhaddou is one of Morocco's most treasured, alluring and iconic sites.
Perched on a rocky outcrop, the remote village of Aroumd offers stunning views across the High Atlas Mountains and a unique opportunity to experience traditional Berber culture.
A seaside town with undeniable charm, Essaouira's stone ramparts play host to whitewashed houses with bright blue shutters, art galleries and a picturesque harbour.
Marrakech is a feast for the senses. Be enticed by the alluring scents and brilliant colours of the spice markets, the sounds of the musicians and the perfume of its gardens.

Best of Morocco, May 2014
Loved it. Loved the fact that every day we did something different, saw something new. Tried different food. Morocco is a beautiful place. Samir was friendly and easy to get along with, a special skill I think when mixing with many different nationalities and personality types. I would highly recommend him.

Best of Morocco, May 2014
Abdou was an amazing leader. He was passionate about his country and culture and was happy to discuss anything and answer all our many questions. He was particularly good in the small villages and showing us local culture. He was highly organised and effiicent with the logistics of the tour. He had an extremely difficult person in the group and went out of his way to help her and never lost his patience or showed irritation.He has a lovely sense of humour and kept the group together and happy.
