Imperial Cities & Merzouga Desert Tour Package: 6 Days
Day 1: Marrakech - Casablanca
Let's go! We'll pick you up from your hotel, riad or the airport and drive away from Marrakech on our way to Morocco's Imperial Cities. Our first stop will be Casablanca, where we'll visit the Hasan II Mosque, which is the African continent's second largest mosque.
To round off our time in the city, we'll head inside the Old Medina of Casablanca. You'll be able to visit the souk and stroll along the corniche and the promenade during our visit. After a jam-packed first day, we'll settle into our hotel in Casablanca for the night.
Day 2: Casablanca - Rabat - Meknes - Fez
Having had breakfast at the hotel in Casablanca, we'll drive to Rabat, which is the current capital of Morocco. Here, we'll see the outside of the Royal Palace, the Mausoleum of Mohamed V and the fortified city of Kasbah Udayas, whose walls display a unique blue tinge.
Our next stop will be Meknes, a beautiful city full of luxurious palaces, mosques and a large souk. Afterwards, we'll head to the Roman ruins of Volubilis.
We'll then head to a hotel in Fez, where we'll spend the night.
Day 3: Fez
The third day of our tour will be spent exploring the oldest imperial city in Morocco: Fez. This walled city is home to iconic sights such as the Merinid tombs, the Mellah Jewish quarter and the Museum of Weapons.
You'll also be able to explore the Medina of Fez, which is one of the most chaotic in the country. Mosques, tanneries, squares and several souks await in the heart of Fez!
We'll make our way back to our hotel and get some rest.
Day 4: Fez - Azrou - Midelt - Erfoud - Merzouga
After breakfast, we'll hop into our vehicle and drive through the cedar forests of Azrou on our way to the Ziz Valley. We'll pass through its numerous gorges and visit charming villages such as Midelt and Erfoud.
As daylight begins to fade away, we'll get onto our camels and head into the Merzouga Desert just like the Berbers. We'll watch as the sunset is reflected in the dunes, creating a magical memory.
We'll get settled into our haimas at the Berber camp, where we'll have dinner and spend an unforgettable night in this unique environment.
Day 5: Merzouga - Todra and Dades Gorges
Rise and shine! We'll watch the sun rise over the Merzouga Desert as we have breakfast and return to the hotel to freshen up and continue our journey. As we drive through the Todra Gorges, we'll admire this incredible landscape and visit the area's most picturesque Berber villages.
The last stop of the day will be the Dades Valley, where we'll head to the hotel to get some rest.
Day 6: Dades Gorge - Ouarzazate
We'll fuel up for the day with breakfast at the hotel and hit the Thousand Kasbash road on our way to the Skoura palm grove. One of the most impressive places in Morocco awaits: Ouarzazate. This fortified city has been chosen as a filming location for numerous classic films, which we'll reveal during our tour...
