Days 1–4: Rabat and Fez

An overnight flight from New York brings you into Casablanca, Morocco’s largest city. You’ll get a chance to see Casablanca on the final days of this tour; for now, you’ll head about an hour north to the capital city of Rabat. On a guided tour here, you’ll pay a visit to the royal palace and the ruins of an ancient Roman village.

The tour soldiers on to nearby Fez, which you can choose to explore on your own for a full day. Or, take an optional dinner and show (extra fees) that features traditional Moroccan cuisine accompanied by bellydancing.

Days 5–6: Marrakesh

The drive from Fez to Marrakesh takes a full day, but it’s a beautiful trip—you’ll pass the Atlas Mountains, lush valleys, and dry flatlands along the way, with plenty of rest stops and a lunch break in the town of Beni Mellal. That evening, take a short bus tour of Marrakesh before turning in at your hotel.

The next morning, you’ll explore the Saadian Tombs, a royal burial ground that dates back to the 16th century. On a half-day city tour, you’ll also get a chance to shop for Moroccan herbs and spices. The tour ends at the medina of Marrakesh, an ancient walled section of the city where local artisans sell their crafts and local pranksters superglue one-dirham coins to the sidewalk.

Days 7–8: Casablanca

A three-hour drive brings you back to Casablanca, where you’ll visit the seaside area and explore the grounds of Hassan II Mosque—the second-largest mosque in the world. The Place Mohammed V is packed with government buildings that date back to the 1920s and 1930s and is characterized by beautiful mosaics and arches.That evening, you’ll enjoy a farewell dinner with your tour group at a seaside restaurant.
