Day-by-Day

Day 1
Arrival to Casablanca

Welcome to Casablanca - Morocco's largest city and in fact one of the largest and most important hubs in entire Africa! Your private driver meets you at the airport and transfers you to the hotel.

The rest of the day is free for you to enjoy the surroundings on your own or to take a good rest in your comfortable room.

No meals included.

Day 2
Day trip to Rabat

Following breakfast, you meet your driver in the hotel lobby and travel to the official capital of Morocco - Rabat. Upon arrival in about 1 hour, you meet your local guide and set off on a 4-hour tour of the city's major highlights.

Located on the Atlantic coast in the north-west of Morocco, the city is the product of a fertile exchange between the Arabo-Muslim past and Western modernism adapted under the French Protectorate. Bearing the unique cultural value, it was included in the UNESCO World Heritage list.

During the tour, you visit the 12th-century Kasbah of the Udayas, Hassan II Tower - the most visited sight in Rabat, the medieval fortified Chellah Necropolis, and the Mausoleum of Mohammed V.

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

Breakfast is included.

Day 3
Driving to Marrakech and City Tour

Following breakfast, your driver meets you in the hotel lobby and takes you to Marrakech. Upon arrival in 3,5 hours, you leave your luggage at the hotel and meet your local guide before setting off on a 5-hour tour of the city's major highlights.

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.

Breakfast is included.

Day 4
Day trip to Essaouira

Early in the morning following breakfast, you meet your driver-guide in the hotel lobby and venture off to the Jewel of the Atlantic, the amazing coastal town of Essaouira known for its distinctive white houses and blue doors. 

Upon arrival in about 2,5 hours, you start exploring the former Portuguese fishing village. During your tour, you see Old Medina which is currently part of UNESCO World Heritage and stroll down the Atlantic Boardwalk. Another highlight of the area is the Scala du Port fishing harbor that offers breathtaking views of the Portuguese ramparts. 

After the tour, you are transferred back to your hotel in Marrakech.

Breakfast is included.

Day 5
Departure

This is the last day of your tour of Morocco. After breakfast, you check out from the hotel and meet your driver who transfers you to the Marrakech* airport for your flight back home.

We hope you enjoyed your Morocco experience and we'll be looking forward to seeing you on our tours again!
