Overview

If you plan to spend time in Morocco and want to take advantage of everything it has to offer, read on. So don’t wait to book this incredible package that includes a 12-day tour from Casablanca. It includes a trip to Chefchaouen as well as stops at Rabat, Fes, Meknes, and Marrakech, all of which are historic cities, as well as beautiful views of the Atlas Mountains, Berber Villages, the Sahara Desert, and the coastline.

The journey gives you an in-depth look at Morocco because you will explore the country’s interior at a depth that a regular traveler cannot. It will give you a chance to experience Morocco as it truly is and visit some of the country’s top attractions.

This 12-day tour from Casablanca will enable you to hike along vanished caravan routes, ride camels over enormous sand dunes in Erg Chebbi, camp in the Desert of Merzouga, and cool off in an oasis at the base of a George, in addition to cultural stops in historic cities, desert exploration, medieval medinas, lively souks, ancient ruins, and old kasbahs.

Moreover, your journey is not linear but has several cultural stops. For instance, if you are traveling from Fez to the desert, you will pass through Azrou’s cedar forest, where you can encounter wild monkeys. You’ll also pause in Ifrane so you may snap pictures with the lion statue.

If you want to spend enough time in Morocco and learn about its culture, 12 days is the ideal amount of time. This tour is crucial since it ensures that you visit Morocco at a leisurely pace. While not rushing, you allow sufficient time for each location.

The 12-day journey is significant since it includes Essaouira, which the bulk of travel companies overlook. We chose this city for two reasons: first, it has a vibrant spiritual music scene, and second, Game of Thrones used it as a background. Many tourists who watched the program were incredibly eager to get there. As a result, the city is deserving of its position among Morocco’s best tourist destinations.

Finally, the tour visits all of Morocco’s Game of Thrones locations. The Cinema Studio, the Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou (Yunkai), which was named the second-best Game of Thrones Instagram destination, and Essaouira were among the places we listed (Astrapor).

Don’t forget to pack your camera.

While touring the central market, the Habous District, and the Royal palace, you will have the opportunity to appreciate the charming fusion of modern and traditional influences that create the city.

Hassan II Mosque is the sole attraction open to non-Muslims among the few sites it has to offer. It is one of the few mosques in Morocco that allows foreigners to enter, and it is situated on the city of Casablanca's waterfront.

You will have some free time in the afternoon. It is a famous landmark that symbolizes Morocco's contemporary face in terms of architecture. The Atlantic Ocean breeze can also be felt by taking a lovely stroll along the beach. In Casablanca, spend the night taking a lovely stroll along the beach and check into the hotel later.

After having breakfast in your hotel, we will travel to Rabat, which is Morocco's administrative capital. This city was established in the 12th century as a fortress. In the 17th century, it served as a sanctuary for Barbary pirates.

Morocco was the first country to recognize the United States as a sovereign nation because of these pirates and the issues they caused. In this Atlantic port town, you may visit historical landmarks dating back to the Romans. The souks in this area are of the highest caliber and offer some of the best-handcrafted goods in Morocco.

We will pass through Ouazzan on the way to Chefchaouen after lunch. Prior to reaching Chefchaouen, Ouazzan is no doubt a stunning place in Morocco. Then we’ll move on. Chefchaouen, sometimes called the Blue Pearl of Morocco, is a photographer's paradise. The city has a long history of serving as a haven for refugees, from Jewish refugees coming here in the 1930s to exiled Moors from Spain due to its location in the Rif Mountains.

The 18th-century Kasbah, a carefully rebuilt walled castle with a magnificent garden on Chefchaouen, can be found in the plaza.

Chefchaouen is a fantastic location for captivating photos with its steep, narrow cobblestone alleyways, whitewashed houses, blue doors, windows, and mountains as a backdrop. You will witness Ras Elma's natural spring water after lunch. This town, in contrast to other areas of Morocco, was under Spanish control. Consequently, the cultures of Spain and Morocco have a significant effect. You will spend the night in the hotel.

Before the magic begins, you can unwind in your Riad. A hub of entertainment at night, Jemaa el-Fna Square comes alive with musicians, performers, snake charmers, games, and food vendors.

Day 10: Marrakech: Exploring the Red City

Day 10: Marrakech: Exploring the Red City

Marrakech in Morocco will hypnotize you if you go there. Due to its 1000-year-old red sandstone city walls and structures, it is known as the "Red City." Indeed, Marrakech remains a popular tourist destination despite having historically served as a major commerce hub for tribes from the Atlas Mountains. Our knowledgeable guide will accompany you on your tour of this city.

Starting at Jemaa el-Fna Square, your tour begins. Your Morocco travel guide will go over the square's layout and the city's cultural influences. You next proceed to Majorelle Gardens and Koutoubia Mosque. The Saadian Tombs, Bahia Palace, and El Badi Palace will be your next stops. Lunch will be served to you at a nearby eatery.

A visit to Marrakech will educate you a lot about Moroccan culture. Each year, millions of people visit Marrakech, one of Morocco's best cities. Marrakech is known for its diverse cultural population. The south is an embodiment of European culture, whereas the north is traditional and keeps the marks of the past. Luxurious restaurants akin to those in Paris can be found in the city's modern section.

However, you can discover traditional souks and stores in the traditional area. Souk el Attarin, Souk Chouari, and Souk Smata will be quite helpful if you're looking for traditional things.

Marrakech is wonderful, and a trip to Morocco would be incomplete without a stop in this enchanted city. Numerous landmarks, different monuments, and magical locations. All of this sets Marrakech apart from the rest.

Day 11: Essaouira excursion

Day 11: Essaouira excursion

After breakfast in Marrakech, we will go to Essaouira, a Moroccan coastal city that served as the inspiration for Astrapor in the Game of Thrones. Numerous goats may be seen on the road climbing trees in search of argan nuts.

Given that the region is well-known for its argan oil, you should take the chance to visit some Women's Cooperative of Argan. Women will tell you about the uses and advantages of the oil, which range from cosmetics and cooking to medical.

Essaouira, a modest white town on the Atlantic coast, will be reached after a number of stops along the road. You will stroll through the Medina, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and discover its "Skalla fortress"-named ramparts. Lunch at a traditional restaurant with a fresh fish order.

Because of its reputation as the "City of the Wind," Essaouira draws surfers from all over the world. Since it was inhabited by these civilizations, Roman, Phoenician, and Portuguese influences can be seen in its architecture. It is a small town with a rich history, in fact.

We will go return to Marrakesh by road in the late afternoon. You can once more enjoy Jamaa El Fna while staying the night in your Riad.

We booked 12 days tour from USA with Morocco Travel. We were with a guide from beginning till end. The company performed excellently throughout. We met our driver Hassan at the airport on time and delivered to our hotel in Casablanca. The driver spoke very good English and we’re very personable and willing to perform anything additional we requested. The driver was punctual and the overall organization of our tour was excellent. Morocco Travel also provided the guides. The guys were generally of high-quality and were able to convey a large amount of information. Generally, our experience with this company was great. They performed with high levels of professionalism and we highly recommend them for anybody going to Morocco as an agency that can organize a tour as well as provide drivers and guides.
