14-night Complete Tour of Morocco

This longer and much more comprehensive tour of Morocco will take you through two of the country's most exciting and beautiful cities: Fes and Marrakech. You will also experience two very different Atlantic ocean locations. You then head south into the Sahara desert. In the Draa valley, experience a night in a desert camp, under the stars... North to Fes, passing through a Morocco that feels more like Switzerland with forests of pine! Then Fes, a total time warp filled with stunning architecture, smells and sounds. Back to Marrakech for a night before your return home.
 
- This itinerary is a suggestion and can be adapted to your preferences
- The suggested Things-to-do by each hotel are suggestions based on the hotel's location, and are not included in the guideline tour cost.
- This itinerary includes a group A (small) self-drive car which will be delivered to your hotel after your initial nights in Marrakech. We can provide an English-speaking driver for the duration and, of course, larger cars or 4 X 4 are also available.
- Most hotels insist on minimum stays over the Christmas, New Year and Easter periods so some of the short overnight stays may not be possible at these times.

I was coming to understand that Fes reveals its considerable charm only slowly.
