With its snow-capped Atlas Mountains, buzzing souks, ancient cities, and golden sands, cinematic Morocco ranks among the world’s most scenic countries (it’s little wonder that Hollywood masterpieces like Lawrence of Arabia and Gladiator have used the North African country as their backdrop). Immerse yourself in Morocco’s wild beauty on an in-depth tour, from its historic cities to its mountain villages.
No escorted tour of Morocco is complete without visiting its four Imperial Cities: Marrakech, Rabat, Fez, and Meknes, so named because they’ve all played an important part in the country’s history (and have all served as its capital cities).
In Marrakech, go on a sightseeing tour around the Jemaa-el-Fnaa square, the Bahia Palace, and the Saadian Tombs, before embarking on a stroll around the fragrant bazaar. In Meknes, meanwhile, marvel at the city’s 16-mile-long protective walls before visiting the Moulay Ismail Mosque.
Continue onwards to Fez, the oldest of the Imperial Cities, where marvels like the Bab Bou Jeloud arch rub shoulders with lively souks. And in Rabat, Morocco’s present-day capital city, embark on a guided tour of the Royal Palace, Hassan Tower, and Kasbah of Oudaias.
That’s only the start. Whether on a scenic drive through the Atlas Mountains, on an exploratory tour of the Ziz Valley, or while visiting a traditional desert village, on your Cosmos coach holiday you’ll encounter Morocco’s otherworldly beauty at every turn.
