Fes, Morocco
No Morocco itinerary can be complete without some time spent in Fes. The city that came to live in the 9th century is one of the largest municipalities in the country and has a lot to show for every visitor. Besides the fact that cars are not allowed inside the medina, as the entire place is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you would also be surprised to learn that it has the second oldest university in the world, founded in 859. There is a lot to learn about the Moroccan destination gem, but even more to see. Like the Chouara Tannery for instance, where you can witness how the leather goods have been produced since the 11th century, the colorful sight will stay long in your memory....

Connection | Fes - Merzouga
Private Transfer Sedan
The drive itself from Fes to Merzouga takes about 7 hours, several sightseeing stops are planned on the way. While traveling through the Middle Atlas Mountains, you pass the town of Ifrane often referred to as the Switzerland of Morocco for the surrounding mountainous landscapes and famous ski resorts. Another highlight of the area is Ifrane National Park - the natural reserve abundant with aromatic Atlas Cedar and a home to the largest population of Barbary macaques at this point considered to be endangered species. Closer to Merzouga, you make a stop and enjoy panoramic views of Ziz Valley which has historically formed a part of a traditional caravan trading route between the settlements of Northern Sahara.

Still wondering if there is enough time to see all of Morocco? Probably not, but you should leave at least a day for this beautiful corner of the country. The tiny town is located on the sand of the Sahara Desert close to Algeria. Just outside Merzouga, you can visit a seasonal salt lake that is gone during summer and only appears during the colder months of the year. But if you still happen to be there once the lake has dried, don't worry you can still have fun, like experience a relaxing sand bath, which is often recommended for those suffering from rheumatism and general body aches. Of course, a camel ride to Erg Chebbi sand dunes should be on top of your priorities....

Connection | Merzouga Desert - Skoura Oasis
Private Transfer Sedan
The drive itself from Merzouga to Scoura Oasis takes about 5 hours, several sightseeing stops are planned on the way. On the way, you reach the spectacular gorge of Todra - one of the most breathtaking sights in Morocco. The gorge was carved by the Todra river that formed cliff-sided canyons in the mountains. The final 2000 ft of the gorge are stunning as the canyon narrows to a flat stony track, which is as little as 30 ft wide in areas with sheer and smooth rock walls.

Connection | Skoura Oasis - Marrakech
Private Transfer Sedan
The drive itself from Marrakech to Scoura Oasis takes about 4.5 hours, several sightseeing stops are planned on the way. The first highlight of your 4,5-hour journey is a charming city of Ouarzazate which is often referred to as the Gates of the Desert and was formerly an important hub for African traders. 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. Next comes the Rose Valley - the region between the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara Desert which is the major producer of rose oil and water in the whole country. Traveling in April or early May allows you to see the Rose Valley in all its beauty. The final leg of your journey takes you through the famous mountain pass in Morocco - Tizi’n’Tichka, and gives you the opportunity to admire magnificent views of numerous Berber villages, snow-capped mountains, and green valleys.

Traveling to Marrakech? Make sure to spend at least 3 days in the "Ochre City". We recommend you to have a guided tour of the major landmarks of Marrakech, including the 19th century Bahia Palace, Saadian Tombs and El Badi Palace located nearby. Visit the vibrant Majorelle Gardens for more contemporary feel. Interested in local cultural experience? Then you can't leave Marrakech before bargaining at the souks and attending the tanneries....
  • Day By Day

    Day 7: Arrival
    Welcome to Marrakech - Morocco's second largest city! Upon arrival your private driver takes you to the centrally located hotel. 

    Day 8: Sightseeing in Marrakesh
    After breakfast at the hotel, you set off on an exhilarating sightseeing tour of Marrakech with your guide and driver. During this 5-hour tour, you see the major highlights of the ancient city.

    Start with an exploration of 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.

    The next stop on your route 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 9: Departure
    Following breakfast in your hotel, you check out and depart from Marrakech.
