Moroccan Discovery

OCT. 29 - NOV. 11, 2021
Rabat, Fez, Erfoud, Ouarzazate, Marrakech, Casablanca

This land of dramatic contrasts invites encounters with its ancient ruins and sacred mosques, endless desert and storied mountains, imposing kasbahs and spirited souks.  On this 14-day small group tour, limited to 24 travelers, eyes and hearts open to a truly foreign land, an age-old culture, and genuinely hospitable people.  Your touring begins in seaside Rabat, the Moroccan capital, where highlights include the Roman site of Chella, the contemporary art museum, and lunch in a private home.  Visits to two of the itinerary’s five featured UNESCO sites follow – the imperial city of Meknes and the impressive Roman ruins at Volubilis.  During a three-night stay in Fez, Morocco’s oldest imperial city, exploration reveals the fascinating medina’s many treasures, complemented by dinner in a family-run riad.  Crossing the Middle Atlas mountains, reach Erfoud, where a tour highlight awaits:  a sunset camel excursion to Merzouga’s breathtaking sand dunes on the Sahara’s edge.  Experience more spectacular scenery en route to Ouarzazate in the snow-topped High Atlas, including the dramatic Todra Gorge; and journey along the ancient “Route of a Thousand Kasbahs.” En route to Marrakech, stop to view Ait ben-Haddou village, a UNESCO site made famous in film shoots.  Touring in fabled Marrakech includes beautiful Koutoubia Mosque, cobalt blue-accented Majorelle Gardens, the Yves St. Laurent Museum, and a walking tour of the medina that ventures to the city’s heart, Djemaa el Fna Square.  Spend a final night in storied Casablanca, where we take time to explore the magnificent Hassan II Mosque, the world’s second largest Islamic house of worship.
