Salam, welcome to Morocco

If you enjoy diverse landscape, unique Berber arts and crafts, magnificent Islamic architecture, friendly locals, then Morocco promises many of these beautiful life experiences ...

Morocco is a big country and the landscape is vast and varied, from modern cities to medieval towns, beautiful seaside resorts, charming Berber villages to mountainous landscape and the Sahara.  The journey from one place to another can often take several hours on the road.  The longer time you have the more you will see and experience.  A 14 day itinerary will allow you to cover all the major sights in the country.  But then not many of us can afford that length of time.

Please have a look at the proposed 12D/11N itinerary for an escorted tour.  It makes sure you will not only visit the three important Imperial cities, charming Chefchaouen, but also the all important experience of camel trekking and a night spend in the Sahara.
