Itinerary

Expand/Close

Upon arriving at the Casablanca Airport and after clearing passport control and customs, you’ll be met by the driver who will be with you during your entire visit to Morocco.

From the airport, it’s a 2.5-hour drive southeast to Marrakech.  Arriving in the afternoon, you’ll check into the Riad Azoulay and then have the rest of the evening to get acquainted with Marrakech.  We recommend heading to the Jemaa el-Fnaa Square, where you can find every flavor of Morocco in a festival atmosphere with aggressively helpful cooks and servers.

Day 2 :
Marrakech

After breakfast at the Riad, your guide will meet you for a 4-hour guided tour of Marrakech (with admissions included).  You’ll walk the Medina (Old City) and not miss a site.  From the Saadian Tombs to the Madrasa and everything in between.  After the tour, the rest of the day is yours to explore Marrakech.  Take a carriage ride to the Menara Gardens with its olive groves and a massive artificial lake.  Or head to the Majorelle Gardens for a rest from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech.

Day 3 :
Marrakech

After breakfast at the Riad, Marrakech is yours to explore and enjoy on your own.

After breakfast and checking out of the Raid, your driver will take you north on a 7-hour drive to Fez

Marrakech may be the party city of Morocco, but Fez is its cultural soul.  When you see the medina from above, it looks empty and lifeless.  But when you arrive, you see the old city abuzz with life, hidden from above by its narrow streets.  One of the world’s largest labyrinth cities, just venturing into the Fez Medina is an experience of a lifetime. Fortunately, just outside the famous Blue Gate is your Riad.

After a long day of traveling, the luxury of the Riad el Yacout embraces you like an old friend.  After checking in, you’ll have dinner and the rest of the evening on your own.

Breakfast, Dinner
Day 07 :
Fez

Your day starts with breakfast at Riad El Yacout before being met by your guide.  For the next 5 hours, your guide will take you on a walking tour of the Fez Medina.  From outside the Medina, the old city looks dead and lifeless, but once you enter the narrow streets, you’ll feel the living heartbeat of the city.  Crowded with people going about their lives as mules carry goods to and from the shops and markets, you can’t help but be swept up in the energy of this ancient city.  History and culture are around every turn, and your guide will make sure you don’t miss a thing.

After the tour, the rest of the day is yours.  If you’re adventurous, head back into the Medina, or stay at the Riad, swim in the pool, or just enjoy an afternoon relaxing.

Day 6 :
Fez

Day on your own in Fez

After breakfast, your driver will meet you for a day spent exploring the sites outside of Fez.  After a 1.5 hour drive, you’ll arrive at the Roman ruins of Volubilis.  Originally founded in the 3rd century BC, Volubilous grew to become an important outpost of the Roman Empire.  Explore the ruins on your own or upgrade for a private guided tour.

After Volubilis, it’s a short drive to the Imperial City of Meknes.  Your self-guided tours include the Heri es Souani granary and stables (one of the labors of Hercules), the Prison de Kara, and the Mausoleum of Moulay Ismail.

After the tours, you’ll travel 2 hours west to Rabat.
