On this singular small group tour, experience a truly foreign land, an age-old culture, and genuinely hospitable people. A 14-day exploration of this country of dramatic contrasts takes you from seaside Rabat to the desert towns of Erfoud and Ouarzazate and through the snow-topped High Atlas. Along a journey featuring the many cultural treasures of Fez, Marrakech, and Casablanca – and five UNESCO sites – encounter Roman ruins, an ancient caravan route, spirited souks, and fascinating medinas bustling with snake charmers and spice merchants. Dine with local people in a private home and in a family-run riad. Admire dramatic Todra Gorge and the village of Ait ben-Haddou, famed as a location for film shoots. Visit the world’s oldest continually operating university, and marvel at one of the world’s largest Islamic houses of worship – magnificent Hassan II Mosque. Ride out on camelback to the Sahara, watch the sun set over the breathtaking dunes.
