Tour Plan

Day 1: Check-in day

Greetings and welcome to Marrakech, the capital of tourism in Morocco. Upon your arrival at the airport, you will be greeted by a shuttle driver who will be holding a card with your name on it. This will be your first taste of Morocco and the start of an exciting journey.

You’ll be taken straight to your Hotel/Riad to settle in before we start our journey.

Day 2: Breaking the noise.

From Marrakech, we embark on a journey through some of Morocco's most stunning landscapes, located in the breathtaking Atlas Mountains. We will travel along rugged cliff tops and visit small Berber villages in the highest mountain range in North Africa. As we drive towards Ait Benhaddou, we will pass over the Tizi n'Tichka pass, which stands at an elevation of 2260 meters (7400 feet). Along the way, we will also stop at the Glaoui Kasbah in Talouat and the lush Ounilla Valley. Our destination is Ait Benhaddou, a UNESCO-protected red mud-brick Ksar from the 11th century. Here, we will have the opportunity to enjoy a home-cooked meal with a local family.

Alternatively, you can take the more scenic route which takes you to "Ouallywood," a film studio, and the Taourirt Kasbah. You will then descend into the Drâa Valley, a 125km belt of palm tree oasis that eventually merges into the Sahara near M'hamid. At Agdez, you will find a classic caravanserai oasis with a still-pristine palmeraie, a 17th century ancient mud-brick Kasbah, and a secret desert prison. Another highlight of the Drâa Valley is Tamnougalt, a 16th century fortified Ksar perched on a hill 6km south of Agdez. Your journey will end in the town of Zagora.

Day 3: Through the Sahara.

Today, we embark on a journey to Morocco's wildest desert, passing through Tamegroute, a unique town that was once the most important settlement in the Valley of Draa. Tamegroute is known for its green pottery and the Zawiya Naciria, a site of pilgrimage and refuge for the mentally ill. The Zawiya also houses a working Quranic school with a library that was once the richest in Morocco, containing 4000 ancient illuminated texts.Departing from Temegroute, we will journey through a barren and sun-scorched landscape to the end of the paved road in M'hamid El-Ghizlane. This marks the beginning of our off-road adventure to Erg Chigaga, a golden sea of sand dunes. As you lay back and watch the twinkling stars, you'll surely drift off to sleep in the peaceful and awe-inspiring surroundings.

Day 4 :Camel explorations in the wilderness.

Riding a camel is the ultimate way to experience the nomad lifestyle and explore the desert. As you traverse the dunes, you'll be able to listen to the eerie wind whispering through the sand and truly immerse yourself in the stunning landscape.

Today, you will have the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the desert and discover its rich history, flora, and fauna. Accompanied by a camel guide, you will set out on an adventure that will allow you to truly live the desert experience.

Lunch will be served in a truly remote location, surrounded by towering 300 meter-high dunes and offering stunning views of the horizon. It's an unforgettable experience to dine in such a serene and beautiful setting.

Day 5 :Goodbye to the Wilderness.

Welcome to Casablanca, Morocco! Upon your arrival at the airport, a private English-speaking driver will be waiting for you to take you to the Hassan II Mosque. This impressive mosque was built on the coast in the mid-1980s and combines elements of Arab Andalusian heritage and local Berber culture. You will have the opportunity to explore this landmark and learn about its history and significance. After your visit, you will be escorted to your hotel for some rest.

Day 6: The hidden side of the Atlas Heights.

From Taliouine, we will make our way to Marrakech via Taroudant, a town known for its elegant Berber architecture and its majestic 7km circuit of tawny-brown and honey-gold walls. As you wander through the town, be sure to take note of the distinctive blue veils worn by many of the older local ladies. This is a truly beautiful and unique place, and you'll want to take your time to explore and enjoy it.

Later in the day, you will be driven along the road that winds through the High Atlas Mountains, famously known as the Tizi n'Test. This panoramic drive offers some of the best views in Morocco. As we head north towards Marrakech, we will make a stop in the village of Tinmal to visit the 1156-year-old mosque. This is a beautiful and historic place that is definitely worth a visit.

Day 7 : Walk and Talk Marrakech Medina Tour

Accompanied by your private Marrakech-born guide, you will set out to explore the Red City, starting with its old medina and its narrow lanes. You will visit some of the city's most lavish sites, tombs, and religious monuments, all adorned in marble. Some of the highlights of your tour will include the Bahia Palace, El-Badii Palace, and the Saadien's Tombs. These are truly breathtaking places that showcase the city's rich history and cultural heritage.

After your tour of the medina, your driver and tour guide will pick you up to take you on a tour of the city's attractions outside the medina. You will visit the Majorelle Garden, the Museum Saint Laurent, and the Berber Museum. While in Marrakech, you will undoubtedly encounter many motorcyclists and horse-drawn carts roaming the city, and some of them may stop at the vast square of Jemaa El-Fnaa, where there is a carnival atmosphere every night with musicians, acrobats, storytellers, and slapstick acting troupes tapping into the city's frenetic pulse.

Day 8 : Departure Day

Today marks the end of your whirlwind adventure, but it is not goodbye. It is simply a farewell for now, as you will surely return for another adventure in the future. Your guide will drop you off directly at the airport after you have checked out of your riad, and you will begin the journey home. Take care and see you again soon!
