Day By Day Itinerary
DAY 1: Depart from USA

  • It is the time to forget about your ordinary everyday life and go on a journey to the other part of the world. 
  • Board your international flight from the USA to reach Morocco in the next day.
DAY 2: Arrival to Casablanca (-+0h45min)

  • Upon arrival in Casablanca, please proceed through customs and immigration formalities. Please collect your baggage and proceed outside where you are met by our representative. Then transfer to your hotel for dinner and overnight
  • Meal: Dinner
DAY 3: Casablanca, Rabat, Fes (-+3h10min)

  • After breakfast, you will enjoy the city tour of Casablanca. The tour begins with an outside visit of Hassan II mosque. It is the largest mosque in the country and the 7th largest in the world.  You then continue to the Ain Diab Corniche for a pleasant stroll along the coast.  Your next stop is Mohammed V Square in the city center. The city tour includes also the Habous Quarter, one of the oldest areas in Casablanca. The district was built by the French in the 1930s as an attempted solution to the ongoing housing shortage. It marries the best of traditional Moroccan architecture with modern facilities and French ideals - even the mosque fronts onto a strip of grassy lawn just like a village church.
  • Depart overland towards Rabat, driving along the main highway which links these two major cities. Embark on a city tour which highlights Rabats cultural influences and the superbly preserved relics of its Moorish past. Rabats most famous site is the 12th-century Hassan Tower (an excellent example of the gorgeous Moroccan style), the incomplete minaret of the great mosque built in the beginning of 12th century. Located alongside is the mausoleum dedicated to Mohamed V, the grandfather of the current king. You also pay a visit to the Oudaya Kasbah, which is built on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Its gate is one of the most beautiful surviving in the Moorish world, and within its walls youll explore a delightful Moroccan garden, complete with melodious fountain and sweet-smelling orange trees. At the conclusion of your sightseeing, you continue overland to Fez (approximately a 3 hour drive) and on to your hotel. Dinner and overnight.

DAY 4: Fes, City Tour

  • Today you take a step back in time to the Middle Ages when you visit one of the most imperial, timeless and untouched cities in the world - Fez El Bali (Old Fez) - the cultural heart of Morocco. You explore some of the 9000 narrow lanes, alleys and souks (open air markets) that make-up the labyrinth of the citys old quarter, originally founded in the 8th century AD.
  • The Imperial capital was a renowned center of medieval learning and at its heart still remains the Karaouine, one of the oldest, still functioning universities in the world. In the neighboring building is the Attarine Medersa (Koranic college), a jewel of Hispano-Moorish architecture, built in the 14th century. Your day of sightseeing also includes visits to the Nejjarine Square, with its beautiful fountain with elaborate tile-work mosaics. The nearby Fondouq (Caravanserai) has been converted to a museum of carpentry artifacts. You also visit Fez El Jedid (New Fez), built by the Merinide Dynasty in the 13th century. Here you see the Royal Palace, mosques, madrasas (Koranic schools), souks and the city wall. Most notably, Fez El Jedid is home to the mellah (Jewish quarter), which provides an interesting insight into Jewish architecture. The wrought iron decorated windows and splendid carved wood balconies of the old mansions are particularly outstanding. The medieval Medina is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

DAY 5: Fes, Volubilis, Meknes, Fes

With its triumphal arches, basilicas and capitals, the Volubilis skyline brims with iconic examples of Roman architecture. Among its greatest treasures, however, are the amazing mosaic floors of former family dwellings, which include depictions of Orpheus charming animals with his lyre, nine dolphins signifying good luck and a portrait of Amphitrite in a seahorsedrawn chariot.
  • Upon completing this glimpse into antiquity, visit Meknes, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the imperial cities of Morocco. Its impressive monuments recall the splendor of a fortified city, first built in the 17th century by the powerful sultan Moulay Ismail, to rival the court of his contemporary, Louis XIV of France.

DAY 8: Merzouga - Tinghir - Dades (-+3h30min)

  • We drive to Tinghir and Todra gorges - the highest & the narrowest gorges in Morocco. Situated on the east side of the High Atlas Mountains in Morocco, the Todra Gorge is recognized around the world as one of the most spectacular canyons. Here, both the Todra and Dades Rivers have carved out cliff-sided canyons on their final 25-mile stretch through the mountains, leaving behind this series of reliefs and etches in the rock. The Todra is the name of the last 600 meters (just under 2,000 feet) of the canyons. In places, this gorge measures just 33 feet across, but the cliffs are more than 500 feet tall on either side. The river has since dried up, leaving only the imagination to picture the powerful natural forces that once carved this region. The gorge, though in a remote, is popular for its hiking paths and a well-maintained dirt road for visitors to share with mules and other pack animals. Dinner and overnight at the hotel.
  • Meals: Breakfast, Dinner
DAY 9: Dades, Skoura, Ouarzazate (-+1h10min)

  • After Breakfast, we&rsquoll drive through the Dades Valley with its majestic sand castles and incredible rock formations known as monkey toes. The route through Dades Valley is also known as the Road of One Thousand Kasbahs. You&rsquoll catch a spectacular view of a vast valley dotted with small oases and hundreds of ancient fortifications. The sand-colored walls of the Kasbah may all start to look the same but each holds a special historical treasure within and offer innumerable opportunities for remarkable photos.
  • Continue to Skoura, a quiet little village speckled with palm tree groves, Skoura is surrounded by acres of palm groves (les palmaraie), which are a paradise of palm and olive trees dotted with Kasbahs and small villages.  This is where we find Kasbah Amridil that stands out from the rest. Originally built in the 17thcentury, it is one of Morocco&rsquos most iconic living museums that has withstood the test of time.
