Overview

Beginning in Fes and covering Marrakesh and the High Atlas Mountains, your tour of Morocco is a sensory sensation, as you experience the spirited way of life of this North African region. Fes serves up dozens of places of note, from the busy souks to the elaborate shrines. Full tours of the highlights of Marrakesh follow as you discover the traditional marketplaces of the Medina and the unique heritage of this trade-route epicenter. The Yves Saint Laurent Museum attests to the lasting influence of this renowned French fashion designer. You also explore an Islamic college founded in the 14th century, as well as the Jemaa el-Fnaa, the greatest square in all of Africa.

A tour through the sand dunes of the Agafay Desert is next on the agenda, including a camel ride on the sandy hills, reminiscent of the ancient nomads that once roamed the land. A tour of the majestic Atlas Mountains and the surrounding Berber villages delivers astonishing vistas and a glimpse into a very storied way of life.

Itinerary in Detail

    Day 1: Casablanca, Fes

    Upon arrival at Casablanca airport, you will receive fast-track service and proceed through customs to meet your private driver and guide. From the airport, you will transfer to Fes.

    Day 2: Fes

    This morning, you meet your guide in the hotel lobby for a day tour of Fes. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a remarkably preserved city, functioning largely as it did in the Middle Ages when it was an important center of culture, famed for its university. The highlights include the Koranic University, the Foundouk Nejjarine, the shrine of Moulay Idriss II, countless souks, and Fes’s famous tanneries. You will also visit the Attarine, one of the city’s most beautiful educational institutions, and the Jewish cemetery at the gates of the Royal Palace.

    In the late afternoon, you arrive in Marrakesh and walk through the souks (marketplaces) of the Medina, tasting Moroccan pastries and discovering traditional spices.

    Day 4: Marrakesh

    Today, you will tour the tropical Majorelle Gardens, restored under the patronage of the late French fashion designer Yves St. Laurent. There is also the option of visiting a museum of Berber culture, located in the home of painter Jacques Majorelle, or the new Yves Saint Laurent Museum, just a short walk from the Majorelle Gardens and the designer’s former residence. This museum is ideal for both longtime fans of Saint Laurent’s work and for those encountering it for the first time.

    Next, you will explore The Ben Youssef Madrasa, the largest Islamic college in Morocco, founded during the 14th century by Abdallah al-Ghalib. The highlight of the Madrasa is its magnificent interior courtyard. Your visit to this part of Marrakesh may also include The Bahia Palace, which was built at the end of the 19th century.

    Afterward, you will explore the colorful souks – market stalls offer spices, carpets, jewelry, enamelware, copper, brass, wood carvings, and more, each situated in its own quarter. You might see villagers bringing in their handmade rugs to sell to merchants, or you might observe artisans hand-tooling crafts as they have for centuries.

    You then take a walk through the frenetic Jemaa el-Fnaa, the greatest square in all of Africa, which was once a destination for traders from places as far away as Venice and Asia.
