Moroccan Explorer

10 days

Hello and welcome to your upcoming adventure in Morocco!

With an itinerary including visits to 7 cities and the potential for 5 more, you will have the opportunity to explore many different regions of Morocco and immerse yourself in the country’s diverse culture and traditions.

In addition to affordable accommodation, we work to create a well-planned itinerary that includes a range of activities and experiences to help you get to know Morocco more deeply. This could include visits to historical landmarks, scenic attractions, cultural events, local markets, and more.

DAY1  CASABLANCA

Welcome to your first day in Morocco! After meeting in Casablanca, it’s a great idea to have a briefing session with your tour leader to go over the details of your trip and make sure everyone is on the same page. Once the briefing is over, you can head to your hotel to freshen up and get settled in. For dinner, we will visit a local restaurant known for tasty Moroccan dishes. Alternatively, you could try out some of the other international cuisine options available in Casablanca.

O.A. : Dinner Restaurant = from $15 per person

DAY2  CASA-CHEFCHAOUEN

On the second day of your trip, you will hit the road to Chefchaouen via Rabat city grab a coffee or juice, and rest for a bit, taking in the beautiful views along the way. Once you arrive in Chefchaouen, we will take a leisurely walking tour of the town and explore its picturesque blue alleys and buildings. You may also want to do some shopping for any items you need or want, or perhaps some souvenirs to take back home. At night, we prepared a range of activities to choose from depending on your interests. You may want to experience a traditional Moroccan dinner and music show then head to the cozy hotel we choose for you to get ready for tomorrow

DAY3  CHEFCHAOUEN

On the third day of your trip, you’ll begin with a satisfying breakfast before embarking on a free day where you can explore and unwind as you, please. With no set itinerary for the day, you can take the time to discover Chefchaouen at your own pace. Many options come to mind, a Hammam maybe and it’s done the traditional way with various spa treatments and Moroccan herbs. Alternatively, you could consider a day to Akchour, the natural magical landscapes; but if you’re looking for a low-key activity, we could make you a picnic space in nature to enjoy the calm in you’re free day. And we will be with you every step of the way.

DAY4  CHEFCHAOUEN-FES

On this day, you’ll leave Chefchaouen and head towards Fes. Along the way, you’ll make a stop at the ancient Roman city of Volubilis and the nearby town of Moulay Idriss, both of which are significant historical sites and are worth exploring. Once you arrive in Fes, you’ll check into a chic hotel and have the rest of the evening to do as you, please. Your tour leader will be there to offer recommendations and guidance on what to see and do in the city.

Your guide will take you through the narrow alleyways, past the bustling souks, and to the city’s most significant historical sites.

While doing the tour, you’ll have some time to explore the city further, shop for souvenirs, or simply relax in a local cafe and soak up the lively atmosphere.

DAY7 ERFOUD-MERZOUGA

The next morning, after enjoying a delicious *Ftor meal, we’ll continue our journey to the desert town of Merzouga, home to the famous Erg Chebbi sand dunes. Once we arrive in Merzouga, we’ll head to our campsite in the heart of the desert.

Karim was the perfect tour manager for our Moroccan Explorer trip. He was professional, personable, and always willing to answer our questions and address any concerns we had. His passion for Morocco was infectious, and he truly brought the country to life for us. I appreciated the thought and care that Karim put into every aspect of the tour, from the itinerary to the accommodations to the dining experiences. It was a fantastic trip, and I can't wait to go back to Morocco with Karim as my guide.
