Marrakech has endless tour options, from the old Medina to the modern Nouvelle Ville.

Or you could leave the busy city behind you and see the Jardin Majorelle (Majorelle Gardens). Designed by French artist Jacques Majorelle, this garden is a tropical utopia featuring hundreds of plants, tranquil lily-covered pools, and colossal sculptural cacti. At its heart is Majorelle’s cobalt blue-painted studio, now a museum. Wander through this peaceful haven before visiting the Yves Saint Laurent Museum. The renowned fashion designer first visited Marrakech in the 60s, and the museum is dedicated to his fashion and the country that inspired him.

Day 6

Meknes & Volubilis

An amazing option between Rabat and Fez for any history buff would be a tour of Meknes, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Morocco’s Imperial Cities. The impressive monuments here are splendid and were built in the 17th century by the powerful sultan Moulay Ismail, to rival the court of his contemporary Louis XIV of France. During your visit, you’ll marvel at the monumental Bab Mansour gateway – considered one of the finest of the great gates of Morocco. Later, continue to Volubilis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to Morocco’s largest and most well-preserved Roman ruins. With its grand arches, basilicas and capitols, the Volubilis is dotted with examples of superb Roman architecture.

Day 7-8


Exploring Fez, the cultural heart of Morocco, is an unforgettable experience for any holiday in Morocco. Your tour can be tailored to your experiences, from a journey through the lanes, alleys and souks comprising the labyrinth of the city’s old quarter. Or maybe you would like to delve into the Medina, a UNESCO World Heritage site and visit Nejjarine Square, with its exquisite fountain created with mosaics and detailed tilework. No visit to Fez would be complete without the sights and smells of the tanneries that will reveal how the country’s highly esteemed leather is dyed.

There is a chance to learn more about how the beautiful Zellij tiles are created and designed or about the manufacturing and history of the famous tagines (earthenware pots in which traditional meals are cooked). You could also take a cooking class, use the tagines for yourself, and be introduced to the fascinating world of Moroccan cooking as an experienced chef coaches you to learn the basics of Moroccan cuisine. Use exotic herbs and spices to create dishes such as Tagine of chicken in preserved lemon sauce or a lamb with almonds and prunes, and then enjoy your creations for lunch.

Day 9


Chefchaouen (the blue city due to its blue-rinsed houses and buildings); was founded in 1471 by Moorish exiles from Spain led by Moulay Ali Ben Mouss. You could journey through time, visiting the cobbled medina. Appreciate striking blue-and-white homes, and visit the 18th-century kasbah, with its tower, garden, and museum. See the endless options for the central mosque, mellah, the former Jewish quarter, and the energetic Utta El Hamam main square.

Day 10

Tangier and Tetouan

Choose to explore the coastal city of Tangier, which dominates the north of Morocco and is the gateway to Europe. Here you can visit the colourful markets, gardens and the famous Kasbah located at the highest point of the Medina and was the former Sultan’s Palace. Or choose to stroll down through the narrow streets of the medina to the Jewish Quarter, where you can see the old Jewish Synagogue and the Jewish Cemetery.
Another great option is a day trip to Tetouan, Small Jerusalem. Uncover the country’s history when you visit the Jewish quarters and the Moorish synagogue. Learn about local life and culture and walk through the modern town to see landmarks such as the Royal Palace, mosques, palm-fringed squares, and Spanish-style buildings.
