Relax on the beach or alternatively explore the UNESCO-listed medina with its various souks and woodcarving workshops. Any city gate leads to the Medina, so you’re unlikely to get lost. The beach is in front of the Medina and there are plenty of cafés with terraces, both ideal for relaxing for a few hours. Blue doors and window frames abound as do the artists shops – buy a carpet or Thuya wood carving or sit on the beach sipping a mint tea as the sun sets, an antidote to the bustle of the Imperial Cities. During our time here there’s the option to take part in horse trekking or quad biking or a cooking class.

Marrakech set against the snow-capped Atlas Mountains. Its great pride and landmark is the Koutoubia Tower, sister to the Tower of Hassan in Rabat and the Giralda Tower in Seville. It is said that after the third of these was completed, the sultan had the eyes of his architect put out, lest he should build another more beautiful tower elsewhere. No visit to the city is complete without a visit to the city’s UNESCO-listed medina and Djemaa-el-Fna, an extraordinary gathering and market place.

The tour was fantastic. Mohammed is a world of knowledge and was happy to share. Siad was a fantastic driver they made a great team. We had an interesting group and Mohammed did a great job and went above and beyond for his passengers. I had some of the most amazing and memorable experiences on this tour. Morocco is an incredible country and it showed in the pride Mohammed and all tour guides we met had for their country.

This tour was wonderful! Both Younes our guide and Mohamed our driver were top notch. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Morocco and feel Camels, Souks and Kasbahs was the best choice to see the most. Extra praise to Younes for the assistance he gave us to retrieve our late luggage. Highly recommend this tour!

The tour was great, enough time to chill and loads of time to take in the different surroundings. Mohamed was so good organising us all and getting local guides who could make everything interesting. His passion for his culture and country is so enthusiastic it rubs off onto everyone. And Said what can I say he didn't let his limited English curb anything, we even gave him English lessons. We even had a tyre blow out in the mountains which he handled so well. looking forward to finding our next tour.Thanks for all you help with this booking.Susan and Deepa

Younis has been one of the best guides I have had on group tours. He was approachable, knowledgeable and patient with all members on the group. I think he has developed his skills well as a tour guide and it shows in how he deals with any problems arising and their resolution. During the tour, Younis was proactive in arranging the groups activities and any additional activities. Of one point of concern, with some of the restaurants we attended en route to locations (possibly nothing could be done) however some of the restaurants were a bit below average and maybe a new selection could be made. Overall I was very happy with the tour, the guide and the driver. I have recommended the tour to others.

I chose this tour based on itinerary as it goes to Chefchouen and Essaouira as well as desert and imperial cities. Morocco is an amazing country and I enjoyed very much visiting it. The only bad part of this trip is the hotels - very frugal and not really 3 stars - I could have spent a little bit more and stayed in real 4 star hotels.

The local guides were excellent and gave us a good insight into Morocco old and new. The tour includes virtually all the interesting places to see in Morocco. Nice to have some time to relax on the coast near the end of the tour.
