Included today:
-Airport transfer
Day 2 Marrakesh
Today is all about the city tour. We’ll check out the Bahia Palace (think: tiles, tiles and more tiles), see the shimmering Saadian Tombs and wriggle past the snake charmers in bustling Jemaa el-Fnaa square. This place has got it all – street entertainers, henna tattoo artists, musicians and more.

First up today, we’ll pay a visit to the Hassan II Mosque – which has the world’s largest minaret (with an actual laser beam on top). Then: it’s on to the UNESCO World Heritage capital of Rabat for a city tour. Don’t forget to paint the town blue in the Kasbah of the Udayas!

Day 4 Rabat to Fes via Volubilis and Meknes
Live la dolce vita in Volubilis (or at least get a good idea of what it was like during Roman times) while wandering around some well-preserved ruins. We’re talking historic public buildings that date back a whopping 2,000 years, AND some intricate mosaics that have well and truly stood the test of time. Later, we’ll take a walk through enchanting Meknes (which was once home to the Moroccan sultanate) before bracing ourselves for all things patterned in Fes.

-Visit the Roman ruins of Volubilis
-Visit Meknes

Meals:

Day 5 Fes
Mausoleums, mosques and medinas are on the cards today as we hit the streets on a full-day whip around the city with a local guide. The 9,000 narrow cobbled streets in Fes el-Bali are lined with spices, food stalls and tanneries, so don’t just stand there – get exploring! Spot minarets crowning the rooftops, see how many fountains you can count or hunt down a hammam for a body shine and polish. It’s a tough life.

Included today:
-Guided tour of Fes

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
Day 6 Fes to Errachidia via Ifrane and Midelt
Adjust to the altitude in Alpine-fresh Ifrane, then carve back through cedar forests to Midelt for lunch (not to mention some breathtaking views of the eastern High Atlas). Afterwards, point your compass south – we’re off to Errachidia.

Meals:
-Breakfast
Day 7 Errachidia to Merzouga Desert Camp
Merzouga looks as if it might be engulfed by the red dunes of the Sahara Desert at any moment. Pull up a pool lounger and savour the view before hopping on a camel (if you want to!) and heading out to to our desert camp. Have you ever seen so many stars?

-Stay at a desert camp in the Sahara

-Breakfast
-Lunch

Day 8 Merzouga to Dades Gorge via Todra Gorge
