Grand Tour of Morocco

A superb circling of Morocco, this is a journey from Marrakech to the Atlas Mountains, seashore to Sahara sands, Imperial cities to oasis towns, and souks to spectacular scenery; its medinas, magicians, musicians, and mystics encapsulating the country’s character

In a country studded with historic sites and scenic natural wonders, this tour reveals Morocco’s many splendours, and enhances the immersive experience with stays in traditional riads. The route includes all four Imperial capitals; mesmerising Marrakech, with eighteen souks, and 3,000 alleyways leading who-knows-where; fabulous Fez, where labyrinthine lanes twist onto lovely fountain squares, and the Ville Nouvelle is dotted with parks and gardens; uncrowded Meknes, its magnificent Bab el Mansour gate opening into the medina; and Rabat, the current capital, its ravishing Kasbah a capsule of calm. We visit coastal Casablanca, and tour to Tangier, where high-rise modernity meets historic medina at Grand Socco square; see the spectacular sea of sand surrounding the Erfoud oasis, a much-used film location; and travel past palm groves and Berber villages to the drama of the Todra Gorge, and through the meandering miles of the Dadès valley to the kasbahs of Ouarzazate. On the road from the Sahara to the sea, we take a breather in elegant Taroudant, before reaching the ocean at Essaouira, brilliantly coloured by fiery sunsets and flotillas of bright blue boats.
