On this one-of-a-kind 14-day small group journey, eyes and hearts are opened to a truly foreign land, an age-old culture, and genuinely hospitable people.  Begin by touring the Moroccan capital, seaside Rabat, and enjoy lunch in a private home.  See imperial Meknes and Volubilis’ Roman ruins, one of five UNESCO sites visited.  Next is exploration of Fez with its fascinating medina and dinner in a family-run riad.  Passing through the Middle Atlas mountains, enjoy a tour highlight:  a sunset camel excursion along Merzouga’s breathtakingly beautiful sand dunes.  En route to Ouarzazate, encounter spectacular scenery in the snow-topped High Atlas, including dramatic Todra Gorge.  Traverse the fabled “Route of a Thousand Kasbahs” and visit scenic Ait ben-Haddou village, another UNESCO site.  In alluring Marrakech, tour the medina and the city’s heart, Djemaa el Fna Square.  The final destination is storied Casablanca, where a highlight is touring the magnificent Hassan II Mosque.
