Highlights of Morocco

Discover the mystical Marrakech and its colourful markets, explore Morocco’s imperial cities, medinas and monuments on this carefully designed tour of the Moroccan highlights

Morocco is a chaotic and colourful, mysterious and mythical land shaped by many nations. The heady combination of Arabic tradition, French influence and African assimilation whisks travellers away on a magic carpet ride of a tour. Morocco will open your eyes to a world of history, a rich culture and a magnificent rural and urban landscape.

Discover the mystical and awe-inspiring Marrakech, where visitors can explore colourful markets with a buzzing atmosphere and the delicious scent of sweet and spicy culinary delights. Here, you will also uncover many enchanting gardens, souks and palaces.

Rabat and the coastal town of Casablanca are hidden gems in the Moroccan treasure chest revealing fascinating medinas, fine gateways, battlements, trees and flowers and a great port, while the medieval city of Fez is where you find old Morocco still exists as it remains relatively unchanged since its founding 1000 years ago, here you’ll find mystical medinas, quirky and narrow streets, and original gates and forts.
