Relish the astonishing contrasts as we encounter the Christian cemetery and a place where the beloved game of cricket is played. A visit to the cats & dogs cemetery will evoke a sense of reverence for our four-legged companions.

Returning to the historical heart of Tangier, the Kasbah, Medina, and Markets await your exploration. Allow our knowledgeable local guide to lead you on a fascinating walking tour, unfolding the cultural tapestry of Tangier's past and present.

Perched atop the highest point in the city, the old Medina, known as the famous Kasbah, reveals its timeless allure. Within its 17th-century stone walls, the former Sultan's Palace, Dar el-Makhzen, reigns supreme, offering panoramic views of Tangier's bustling Medina.

After an enriching day of exploration, allow yourself a moment of tranquility and savor the delights of a refreshing mint tea in a local café. Let the flavors and aromas linger, as you reflect on the wonders of Tangier, a city that effortlessly intertwines the past and the present.

Day 4: Tetouan | Chefchaouen

After breakfast, depart Tangier for the town of Tetouan, which was once the capital of Spain's colony in Northern Morocco. Tetouan was founded in 1305 and later served as a haven for Jews and Moors who fled the Spanish Inquisition. As a result, Moroccan, Islamic, and Spanish (Andalusian) architectural styles have harmoniously merged in this city.

The Hispano-Moresque style of architecture is seen in the old Royal Palace, a 17th-century structure. Place Hassan II, where the old and new towns meet, is the dynamic heart of the city. Tetouan has retained its old medina, a fascinating UNESCO world heritage site. You will have the chance to visit the Archeology Museum with its beautiful relics, artifacts, and mosaics, making it a contemporary memory of the Roman ruins of Lixus and Sephardic Jewish heritage. You will also see the old fort, the walls, and the well-preserved fences. Then, continue on a spectacular drive across the Rif Mountains to the picturesque town of Chefchaouen.

Day 5: Chefchaouen

Chefchaouen is a city with infamous blue and white limewashed houses. In the medina's cobblestone square, Outa-el-Hammam, there is a strong allure that you can actually feel. You can take in the lovely view of the grand Tarik-Ben-Ziad mosque from the terrace of a cafe. The mosque's octagonal minaret was modeled after Seville's Torre de Oro. The Kasbah and its gardens in the middle of the medina are examples of this Andalusian architecture. Its walls and its 11 crenulated towers, of which one used to be a dungeon, house an interesting ethnographic museum.

One can find collections of embroideries and vibrant, varied clothing items like those worn by the women of the area in the small museum in the Kasbah. Here, the long, roomy garment known as the djellaba, which is worn by both men and women in North Africa, was developed. A visit to one of the more than 1500 traditional oil mills or a craftsman's workshop will allow you to experience the warm welcome and excellent hospitality of its residents. Chefchaouen is renowned for its weaving in addition to its basket and pottery industries.

Day 6: Fes | Meknes | Volubilis

After breakfast, you leave Tangier and head inland to the city of Meknes, which served as the capital of Morocco in the 17th century for Sultan Moulay Ismail. This king had a reputation as a ruthless warrior, but he was also a builder during his 55-year reign and developed Meknes from a small town into a majestic capital with gigantic ramparts, monumental gates, palaces, and more than 15 miles of exterior walls. Your tour leader will take you on a comprehensive tour of the city’s highlights, such as the impressive granaries and stables built by the Sultan for his cavalry, the Mausoleum of the King located inside a beautiful mosque, the monumental gate of Bab El Mansour dominating El Hedim Square, and the colorful food market.

Then continue north to the Roman archaeological site of Volubilis. This town served as the western capital of the heavily Romanized yet partially autonomous Berber kingdom of Mauritania, and it is worth visiting to see the splendid mosaics that are still in good condition as well as the capital and triumphal arch. Drive to Fez in the late afternoon and spend the night at Riad Roumana.

Continue your ride to your exclusive desert camp after taking in a stunning sunset from the top of the dune, where our staff will be at your disposal for an unforgettable Saharan night. You will enjoy the local traditional musicians, and it will be a most enjoyable evening.

This lush green oasis stretches along a stunning, deep valley and is continuously inhabited by Berbers who live in Kasbahs and nicely constructed villages.

Take a walk along the spectacular gorges and stop for lunch. Start your journey along the "Route of a Thousand Kasbahs" in the afternoon. This region of Morocco's South is home to fortresses made of earth with ornately decorated facades, making this architectural method and style distinctive to that area. You will travel through El Kelaa M'gouna, known as Morocco's "rose capital" and "The Valley of the Roses." Along this road, you will drive past a large number of villages and Berber Kasbahs before you arrive in Skoura.

Day 11: Ouarzazate | Marrakesh

Make a stop at the UNESCO-protected village of Ait Ben Haddou, one of the most beautiful examples of Berber architecture that UNESCO is trying to preserve.
