GROUP ESCORTED TOUR

ABOUT THE TOUR

The itinerary, designed by Chris Caldicott, combines stays at handpicked hotels with an exploration of the outstanding historic cultural sites, spectacular scenery and countless culinary delights of this area.

Starting in the Red City of Marrakech, you will visit the ancient Jewish Quarter and explore the famous Jemaa El Fna square where throngs of people weave between tightly packed stalls exhibiting pyramids of brightly coloured spices, richly woven rugs and a thousand other exotic goods. We drive north to explore the more tranquil coastal capital of Rabat which sits at the mouth of the Bou Regreg River and dates to the Phoenician expansion over 3,000 years ago.

We will then head inland to the city of Fez, often referred to as the country’s cultural capital and spiritual heart due to its strong ties to religious schools and Islamic scholars. The city is also known for its labyrinth of a Medina, a UNESCO World Heritage Centre, and vibrant craft scene including the famous leather goods which have been produced in the tanneries of Fez since the 16th century.

After stopping in the historic towns of Moulay Idriss and Volubilis, we stay in the unique town of Chefchaouen in the Rif Mountains, known as the ‘Blue Pearl of Morocco’ because of its blue-washed streets and buildings. We continue to Tangier, which guards the strait of Gibraltar and for centuries has been Europe’s gateway to Africa which is very much reflected in its multicultural heritage.

We have a brief stop in the city of Casablanca, the economic centre of Morocco which was made famous by the 1942 film with Humphrey Bogart. Finally, we end the tour with a relaxing stay in the seaside town of Oualidia, known for its golden sands and excellent fish restaurants.
