    Day 6: Arrival

With less tourists around, the winding white-washed streets and gorgeous tumbledown squares of this beautiful town are an ideal place to have a short evening promenade and have dinner in one of the many local cozy restaurants.

    And a little hint from us for the gourmand: eating in Cordoba is a treat - the food is fabulous and the prices are reasonable. Plus, this southern town – once the largest and most splendid city in the world – is the motherland of two delicious cornerstones of Spanish cuisine: bulls’ tail stew and salmorejo (a thicker, creamier version of gazpacho).

During the tour, you see the ancient Roman Bridge, the famous 14th-century Royal Castle - Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos, and of course the gem of the city - the renowned Great Mosque of Cordoba. Not only is it the oldest mosque in Europe, this sacred place is the ideal reflection of Spain's unique mixture of cultures, religions and epochs. No surprise it is officially called a Mosque-Cathedral, as alongside with the most significant monument of the western Muslim world it also houses Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles in its, you won't believe it, Christian part!

    After the tour of Cordoba, you have the rest of the day at leisure.

    Day 8: Day Trip to Alhambra of Granada

The drive itself from Marrakech to Scoura Oasis takes about 4.5 hours, several sightseeing stops are planned on the way.

While your journey continues, you reach another UNESCO site - Ait Benhaddou, the unique mud brick city on the edge of the High Atlas Mountains that was often featured in movies, mostly replacing Jerusalem.

    Day 18: Arrival
    Welcome to Marrakech - Morocco's second largest city! Upon arrival your private driver takes you to the centrally located hotel. 

    Day 19: Sightseeing in Marrakesh
    After breakfast at the hotel, you set off on an exhilarating sightseeing tour of Marrakech with your guide and driver. During your 5-hour tour, you see the major highlights of the ancient city.

    You begin your walking tour in the old quarter of Marrakech where you visit the 19th century Bahia Palace, covered with colorful tile work, and see its eight-hectare gardens with fountains. You then proceed to Saadian Tombs - marble tombs for the Saadian dynasty. Accessible only through a small passage in the Kasbah Mosque, the tombs were neglected until aerial photography exposed them in 1917.

    Your next stop is El Badi Palace located nearby and believed to have contained more than 350 opulent rooms, in addition to a large pool, sweeping courtyard, and several gardens. The pieces from the El Badi Palace were used to create a new palace in Meknes, leaving just the shell of the palace behind.

    Continue to the souks, the largest you can find in Morocco. We suggest you try haggling as it is an inherent part of Moroccan trading culture. In the afternoon, you venture into the new city and visit the Majorelle Gardens - a magical petite garden estate designed by Jacque Majorelle and maintained by Yves Saint Laurent.

    After the tour, you return to your hotel and have the rest of the day free.

    Day 20: Departure
