The rest of the day is free for you to settle in, relax after your flight, and have a first look around. Extra nights before the tour starts are available on request.

Casablanca to Rabat

We start today with a tour of Casablanca, Morocco's economic capital. We'll visit the central market, the Royal Palace, the Habous disctrict, Mohamed V Square, the Anfa residential area and the exterior of the impressive Hassan II Mosque on the seafront. After lunch we'll head to Rabat, Morocco's administrative capital and tour the old town, including the Royal Palace (Mechouar), the Oudaya Kasbah, Hassan Tower, and Mohamed V Mausoleum.

To Fez via Meknes & Volubolis

We leave Rabat this morning and drive to the Berber town of Meknes. Formerly the capital of Morocco during the reign of Moulay Ismail, he transformed the town, constructing intricate gateways, beautiful gardens and at 40m the largest ramparts in the country. Next is ancient Roman city of Volubilis. Recently listed as a UNESCO world heritage site and dating back as far as AD40, Volubilis is home to some of the most impressive Roman ruins in North Africa. We finish the day with a short drive to the mediaeval city of Fez.

Fez, city tour

Over 1,200 years old, the city of Fez is a labyrinth of souks, mosques and spice filled streets. We delve into the fascinating history of the city with a full tour encompassing the Moulay Idrss mausoleum, Nejjarine fountain and the Bou Anania Medersa. We also spend time confusing our senses in the cacophony of noise surrounding the heady alleyways of Medieval Medina, home to tanneries, carpet shops and local restaurants before heading to Fez to explore the cities many varied souks.

To Marrakech via Beni Mellal

We reluctantly leave Fez behind this morning and begin our journey back to Marrakech. Along the way we'll skirt the foothills of the Atlas Mountains and pass by the Berber village of Immouzer Kandar and the town of Ifrane (in case of bad weather the itinerary may be adjusted and travel via Khenifra). We'll also stop for lunch and a break in Beni Mellal which nestles on the edge of the mountains and is one of Morocco's agricultural centres.

Marrakech, city tour

Today's tour of Marrakech begins with a trip to the iconic Koutoubia Mosque, home to the minaret which has become a symbol of the city. We then visit the Menara Gardens and the Bahia Palace which hosts intricate and beautiful Arabic craftsmanship. After a break for lunch, in the afternoon we head to the lively souks around Jemaa El Fna square. Home to many different types of traders these bustling and aromatic streets and handicraft quarters provide a real taste of Morocco. Today's tour ends at the lively Djemaa El Fna Square.

Marrakech, Majorelle Garden, transfer to Casablanca

The morning we head to the beautiful Majorelle Garden with its French-influenced architecture and colour schemes, excellent cactus and palm collection, and intriguing history through its connection with the iconic French designer Yves Saint Laurent. We'll also visit the museum at the gardens displaying some of his works of art.
