    Highlights of Morocco

    From $1799 $535 taxes

    Exotic and fascinating, the Kingdom of Morocco is rich in history and culture, offering travelers intriguing historic sights, authentic cuisine, and changing scenery that is perfect for value-minded travelers wanting to explore and learn about a new destination.

    In the red city of Marrakesh, step back in time as you wander through the Jemaa-el-Fna, a square and exotic bizarre offering some of the greatest open-air entertainment. Listen to the storytellers—an integral part of the culture—and browse for handicrafts. It’s not hard to imagine what it was like in the past, a time when caravans loaded their camels with food and goods to sell at the markets. In Fez, take an optional tour to see the ancient medina. Founded in the 9th century, it is one of the largest medieval cities in the world and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stroll through its souks (markets) and alleys, which are virtually unchanged since the Middle Ages.

    On this Morocco tour, you’ll also visit Casablanca and its newly built great Mosque; Meknes, where you’ll visit the royal stables built to house 12,000 of the royal horses, and see its monumental gates, mosque, palace, and miles of protective walls; Ouarzazate, where you’ll visit the Kasbah de Taourirt, built in the early 19th century and used as a base for the powerful el Glaoui tribe, who controlled the caravan route through the region; the alpine mountain resort of Ifrane; Erfoud, the gateway to the Sahara desert; and Rabat, Morocco’s vibrant capital where you’ll visit the relics of Chellah, a city built by the Romans in 40 AD.

    From the Middle Atlas mountain range and Ziz Gorges to arid desert, this Morocco vacation will amaze you with spectacular scenery. This Morocco tour is truly a once-in-a-lifetime vacation.
