Explore the capital (Rabat), the Roman remains, and Chefchaouen’s calm, blue lanes. You will travel south to the Sahara desert for a night in a nomad camp and a camel walk after marveling at everything that Fes has to offer. Enjoy the expansive valleys, canyons, and miles-long date palm-filled oasis in Morocco’s south. Visit Berber communities and kasbahs, and eat plenty of dates and tagine.

On day two, you will explore the charming “Blue City” of Chefchaouen in the Rif Mountains. Then, you will move on to explore Volubilis and Meknes after that and then finish the day at Fes. On the fifth day, you will venture into the desert.

Before moving on to Erg Chebbi, a vast dune complex that shifts and moves depending on the changing wind, you can meet local artists in Erfoud, a town noted for its fossil mining. Then proceed to Marrakech to explore the souks and Medina before you catch your flight.

When you get to Merzouga, you will take a camel ride across the dunes and sleep out under the stars before visiting the 11th-century Ait Benhaddou, a UNESCO World Heritage site. You will descend to Marrakech, the “Red City” and come close to Jemaa el-Fna as dusk falls as it comes alive with musicians, performers, snake charmers, and food vendors.

The largest mosque in Morocco, the Hassan mosque, will be your first stop. It is situated on a promontory overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on the city's west shore.

A non-Muslim must visit this famous mosque because it is the only one that welcomes visitors who are not Muslim. It is decorated with elaborate decorative patterns, vibrant mosaics, and imposing motifs.

After your visit to the mosque, you will move on to the busy Old Medina, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Without trying some of the regional cuisines, a journey to Casablanca would not be complete. Try delicacies like fish tagine and shrimp couscous since the city is well-known for its seafood. And finish it all off with a glass of Moroccan mint tea, a famous cooling drink.

The city lies roughly 30 km (19 mi) from the present-day city of Fez and is situated in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Given that UNESCO has designated it a World Heritage Site, it has been well-kept. A significant halt along the commerce route connecting Rome with Africa was Volubilis. Slaves, ivory, and gold from Africa were exchanged for Roman wine and olive oil. Wheat, barley, and other crops were also exported from the city.

FAQs

How can I book 10 days tour from Casablanca?

You can book the tour by contacting us. It is not possible to book directly for different reasons. First, we are specialized in private tours; therefore, we need to check if you would like to book the tour as it is or you have special requirements. Second, the price varies from one situation to another. Consequently, we need to give you the full details before you book. These are the main reasons why we like to contact us first.

Why there is no one price for the tour?

There is no one price because the tour is not a shared tour. The price varies based on the number of travelers, the type of accommodations, the itinerary...etc. for example, the price of 4 people traveling together will be cheaper than the price of two people. The reason behind that is that the 4 people share the car, the driver, and the quides, so logically the price per person will be cheaper.

In addition, the type of accommodation influences also the price. A traveler asking for 5-star hotels will pay more than someone asking for 3 stars... Normally, we calculate the costs of each service before we deliver our quotation.

Are our prices cheap? or Expensive?

If you check the prices asked by international companies, you will see that we are 3 times cheaper than what they ask for. The main reason is that we are the ones who serve their travelers. Therefore, we give them our prices and they add their margin. However, the prices of Morocco Travel are reasonable. That is to say, we provide a good combination of price-value. we are positioned in the lux market but we provide standard tours for affordable prices.

Best 10 days desert tour from Casablanca

I highly recommend Morocco travel and our guide Hassan. During our ten-day tour, Hassan brought Morocco's beauty, majesty, and wonder to life. He was highly knowledgeable about Moroccan history and culture and was always happy to answer our questions. he put extraordinary efforts into making our experience remarkable and saw everything we wanted to see. Plus, the hotels they recommend are the best. We loved our stay at the Dades Valley, Merzouga, Rabat, and the luxury camp in the desert. This was a fantastic tour, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an authentic Moroccan experience. We were three friends on this tour and felt very safe. Our guide would always direct us to secure areas during our free time and text us at night to ensure we safely made it back to the hotel. The luxury camp at the Sahara was super comfortable, and the camel man Hamid was so good at taking pictures of us on the camels. If you're looking for a unique and magical evening, you must head to the desert. It's an experience that you won't want to miss. We also loved our tour with Morocco Travel to the imperial cities and the Atlas Mountains. Fes was our favourite city out of all of them. You can tour with Morroco travel for an incredible and diverse ecology. You will experience snow and desert in a few days - it was terrific. Thank you, Morroco travel, the guides we met along the way, and most specifically, Hassan. this tour was perfect to remember . Morocco - we will be coming back! Your tour of Morocco was fantastic! we had a memorable experience. A special thank you to Hassan for making our trip extra special.

Great experience and unforgettable trip with Morocco Travel

I wish I had more stars to give you! what a fantastic experience we had. At first we had no idea what to expect for accommodations, being unfamiliar with Riads and Dars, but they were all gorgeous, clean and the staff were all wonderful people. Ismail, our guide, was FANTASTIC, which meant a great deal, as you can imagine for all of those days being in the car with him for so many hours. Both of the walking guides for the 2 days that we did walking tours were so knowledgeable and friendly. We have already recommended this company to everyone. From someone who experienced worked booking tours, I can tell you that this was 1st class

wonderful 10 days with Morocco Travel

We were considering booking a 10 day tour through a noted US travel company but the price was approximately $6200 pp We contacted Morocco Travel and could receive the same itinerary with similar quality hotels for 1/3rd of the price. We were a little skeptical at first, but after reading the other reviews decided to proceed and go out the middleman. Morocco Travel lived up to our expectations and more. They were very organized and they provided a very good survice. Our guide, Ali, was so nice and funny. We had a great journey with him. The local guides in Marrakech and fez were excellent as well as were the outstanding hotels in fez, Dades Valley, Merzouga, Rabat and the luxury camp in the desert. Some of the hotels were the same as the more expensive US based tour. In summary, would not hesitate to book your entire visit with Morocco Travel.
