More about Morocco

Morocco is located in the northwest of Africa and only 8 miles across the sea to Europe. It's the only remaining monarchy in North Africa and the country is distinguished by its Berber, Arabian and European cultural influences.For travellers, Morocco's cities, deserts and rugged mountains are the source of great fascination and exciting local experiences. You'll quickly acquire a taste for mint tea, as the national drink is served almost everywhere. Friday is famously couscous day, which is as much a family tradition as the 'Sunday Roast'. Rabat is the capital city, Moroccans are crazy about football, there really is a Rick's Bar in Casablanca (look out for the chance to visit on our trips) and the best local greeting is 'Salaam Alaykum', which means 'peace be upon you'.
This trip is a great introduction to Morocco! You'll be looked after all the way on this highly-rated coach tour that's packed with inclusions. Start in country's capital, Rabat, and get your bearings in this buzzing city, then visit the ancient city of Fez. Venture to the edge of the Sahara, travel the road of a thousand Kasbahs and discover the thrill of World Heritage-listed Ait Benhaddou. Experience the unmistakable vibe of Marrakech and enjoy a local farewell dinner in Casablanca. Tick off all the highlights, but it will be those unexpected moments of wonder that you'll treasure forever!

Important to remember...

The day-by-day tour descriptions are intended as an indicative guide only. Travel by nature is unpredictable. Weather patterns, sea or river conditions, road accessibility, public holidays, travel restrictions and a multitude of other factors may necessitate itinerary changes that are ultimately for the client's benefit. It is essential that travellers are flexible and open minded in this regard.

During Ramadan (2 April - 1 May, 2022 & 22 March - 21 April, 2023), historic and cultural sites may close early and operate with minimal staff. The order of sightseeing may be changed to accommodate the holiday observance. Many hotels, restaurants, and bars may not serve alcoholic beverages and some local restaurants may not be open. Entertainment may be limited to be respectful of the holiday observance. Modest dress is suggested during Ramadan (no shorts, short skirts, or sleeveless tops). Use discretion when drinking, eating, and smoking in public between sunrise and sunset.
