An incredible trip of a lifetime!
“My friend and I took a 12-day custom tour of Morocco, visited Rabat, Fez, Volubilis, Meknes, Atlas Mountains, and Essaouira. Thanks to our wonderful guides it was an experience we will never forget! Mohammad was our driver and Rashid was our guide for the trip. They saw to our every need and accommodated all of our wishes. They were so kind and fun that we just fell in love with them. They even arranged a surprise birthday celebration for my travel buddy! Our local guides were very informative and helpful. All of the hotels and riads were lovely, the food was incredible, the scenery was breathtaking. I highly recommend Veni Vidi Travel!” Ishanvi R.

Travel Itinerary

DAY 1Arrival to Casablanca

Welcome to Morocco! Arrival to Med V airport in Casablanca where you will meet your English speaking driver who will also provide a brief review of your tour.
Overnight: Casablanca| Meals: Dinner included.

DAY 2Travel to Rabat and Chefchaouen

Continue north to the imperial city and present-day capital of Rabat, a bustling city with rich history. Explore the medieval fortification of the Chellah Necropolis in the heart of Rabat and explore its Roman and Islamic ruins. Visit the 20th-century Andalusian Gardens before discovering the Hassan Tower, a minaret of the incomplete mosque and Mausoleum of Mohamed V. Carry on northward and watch the landscape change from flat plains and rolling hills to the rocky terrain of the Rif Mountains. Known as the “Blue City,” Chefchaouen is made up of narrow, winding streets and blue-washed buildings, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and friendly locals. Spend your time in the compact medina along the northern hillside and enjoy a meal in Plaza Outa el Hammam, before touring the kasbah (old fortification). As the day draws to an end, make your way to the abandoned Spanish Mosque to enjoy one last view over Chefchaouen as the sun sets behind the mountains.
Overnight: Chefchaouen | Meals : Buffet breakfast & dinner included.

DAY 3Roman Ruins of Volubilis and imperial cities of Meknes and Fes

Rise early to snap unobstructed photos before you head out to the Roman city of Volubilis. A UNESCO protected site, Volubilis is home to Morocco’s best preserved Roman ruins. Wander the expansive complex, exploring the still-intact columns of former buildings, large merchant homes, temples, and the colorful mosaics, including the Labors of Hercules. Continue south to your second imperial city, Meknes. Spend a little time exploring Ville Impériale (Imperial City) and the medina. Carry on eastward to Fes. Before venturing into the medina, take the time to complete a short trek up a hill to the ruins of the Merenid Tombs for a panoramic view of the medieval city. The best time to visit the tombs is around dusk. The muezzin’s calls to worship can be heard through the valley as the city lights begin to glow on, adding to the atmosphere. Or, for another vantage point, find your way to the Mellah (old Jewish quarter and cemetery) in Fes el Jdid.
Overnight: Fes | Meals : Buffet Breakfast & dinner included.

DAY 4 Exploring the Imperial City of Fes and medieval Medina

The oldest of the imperial cities in Morocco, and perhaps the most interesting and exciting to explore, Fes has undergone little colonial development adding to its medieval appeal. Begin your tour in Fes el Bali, starting at the Bab Boujeloud gate welcoming you onto Talâa Kebira. Discover the wares for sale in the souks (markets) and shops as you pass the Spanish and Tunisian influenced architecture. One of the most unique sights in the old Medina is the tanneries and Chouara Tannery is no exception. Climb to the rooftop of a nearby leather shop for a better view of the 11th-century stone pots filled with dye and men working. Follow your guide to Al-Qarawiyyin Library and Mosque (859 CE). If you’re lucky, you may be able to sneak a peek inside the Library.
Overnight: Fes | Meals : Buffet Breakfast & dinner included.

DAY 5Into the desert: Erfoud, Merzouga and the Sahara

You’ll be covering a lot of ground today as you work your way south toward your final destination outside the desert town of Merzouga. Ascend the Middle Atlas mountains through fragrant cedar forests, and over the Col du Zad pass. Stop and stretch your legs in the “Apple City” of Midelt—known for its fruit orchards—and lunch near the Moulouya River. Continue to the palm forests of the Ziz Valley by way of the Tizi n’Talremt pass, noting the many fortified ksars merchants built to protect and stock their precious goods (gold, salt, and spices). Reach Erfoud, known for dates and fossils, and stop at a local artisan collective to learn everything there is to know about the types of fossils found in the area. Head toward the sea of sand of Erg Chebbi, where some dunes are more than 600 feet tall. In Merzouga, meet your camel and hop aboard to trek to your evening’s accommodation: a Bedouin-style tent. Race to the top of a nearby sand dune to watch the desert sunset over the dunes before returning to your site for dinner and a campfire under the starry night sky.
Overnight: Merzouga | Meals : Buffet Breakfast & dinner included.

DAY 6Desert towns around Merzouga, lush oases, and Todra Gorge

Leave the dunes behind and discover the traditional Saharan village of Khemliya—its people originally from Mali. Experience traditional music, drumming and dancing before taking a light walk around the village and its farmed plots in the sand. From there, visit the market town of Rissani to explore the live animal auction and nearby ‘donkey parking lot’. Continue west to Tinerhir and admire the extensive stretch of oasis and the community of buildings that follow the greenery. Stop at the Todra Gorge and climb down to the water’s edge to relax in the refreshing water of the Todra River.
Overnight: Todra Gorge| Meals : Buffet Breakfast & dinner included.

DAY 7Dades Valley, Ouarzazate, Aït Benhaddou

Your journey continues west along the Valley of a Thousand Kasbahs, many in disrepair having been made of pisé clay (rammed earth). Make your way through Boumalne Dades until you reach the plots of land, bordered by manicured rose bushes, in Kela’a M’gouna. Used in the cosmetics industry, roses are cultivated to make rose water and rose oil. Continue west to the popular desert hub and filming location, Ouarzazate. Join a movie studio tour and discover which of your favorite movies were filmed in the nearby desert regions. Movie buffs may appreciate a visit to the Musée du Cinema. Reach today’s final destination, the Kasbah of Aït Benhaddou—a fortified pisé village that sits in a valley near the foothills of the Atlas mountains. The most famous kasbah in Morocco and a protected UNESCO site, Aït Benhaddou held an important position along the trans-Saharan trade route between the southern desert and Marrakech and Ouarzazate. Climb up to the old Granary for a view of the surrounding ksours (individual kasbahs) and Ouarzazate Valley. Wander the narrow alleys and passageways and if you so choose, pay a nominal fee to enter one or two of the old kasbahs.
Overnight: Ait Benhaddou| Meals : Buffet Breakfast & dinner included.

DAY 8Tizi n'Tichka Pass over the High Atlas mountains to Marrakech

Your journey continues northwest, ascending the High Atlas mountains and through the Tizi n’Tichka pass. Stop near the top of the pass to enjoy the vista and the highest peak, Mount Toubkal at 13,671 feet (4,167 m). From there, visit Taddert to tour an argan oil cooperative and discover how the nuts are processed to extract the precious oil used in the health and beauty industries. Upon arriving in Marrakech, settle into your hotel, before venturing out to Marrakech’s main square, Jemaa el-Fna. The square comes alive in the early evening with vendors, musicians, artists, and performers, including snake charmers! Wander the many stalls and begin to orient yourself around the square: the souks are to the north, the Koutoubia Mosque and Gardens to the west and the kasbah area with the Saadian Tombs, Bahia Palace, and El Badi Palace are to the south.
Overnight: Marrakech| Meals : Buffet Breakfast & dinner included.

DAY 9Exploring the Red City - Marrakech

Meet your guide and discover the hidden gems of the medina: souks and shops selling their wares. Find your way to the Koutoubia Mosque—Marrakech’s tallest minaret at 253 feet (77 m)! Next, visit the 16th-century Ben Youssef Madrasa Islamic school and marvel at the exquisite Moroccan artisanship: arabesques, Islamic calligraphy, and colorful geometric tile work. Visit the Majorelle Gardens in Ville Nouvelle for a place to escape the afternoon heat. Next, check out the Saadian Tombs, only discovered in the 1930s. From there, visit the 19th-century Bahia Palace, the most luxurious palace of its time, and admire the intricate woodwork and painted ceilings. If there’s time, visit the El Badi Palace and its sunken gardens, before heading to Marrakech’s Mellah. As you return to Jemaa el-Fna, note the large open spaces along the alleyways, these fondouks or caravanserai were once inns along the ancient trade routes providing travelers and traders a place to stay.
Overnight: Marrakech| Meals : Buffet Breakfast & dinner included.

DAY 10Marrakech to Casablanca – Departure

Rise early and complete any last minute gift and souvenir shopping before finding the 12th-century Almoravid Koubba. The only surviving Almoravid monument, the Koubba was rediscovered in 1948. Next, begin the return trip to Casablanca international airport (about 3.5 hours) for your onward travel arrangements with plenty of tales of Arabian days and nights.
Meals : Buffet Breakfast included.
