Exotic and fascinating, the Kingdom of Morocco is rich in history and culture, offering travellers intriguing historic sights, authentic cuisine, and changing scenery that is perfect for value-minded travellers wanting to explore and learn about a new destination. 

This Morocco-focused itinerary takes in the Imperial cities of Morocco, Fez, Marrakech, Meknes and Rabat as well as some more inspiring cities, such as Ouazarzate, Casablanca and Erfoud. 

In the red city of Marrakesh, step back in time as you wander through the Jemaa-el-Fna, a square and exotic bazaar offering some of the greatest open-air entertainment. Listen to the storytellers—an integral part of the culture—and browse for handicrafts. In Fez, take an optional tour to see the ancient medina. Founded in the 9th century, it is one of the largest medieval cities in the world and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

On this comprehensive and affordable tour of Morocco, you will also be enchanted by beautiful landscapes, stunned by the beauty of the desert, and surprised by the mountain scenery of the Middle Atlas. You’ll also visit Casablanca and its newly built great Mosque; Meknes, where you'll visit the royal stables built to house 12,000 of the royal horses. 

Your tour also takes you to Ouarzazate, where you'll visit the Kasbah de Taourirt, built in the early 19th century and used as a base for the powerful el Glaoui tribe, who controlled the caravan route through the region. See the mountain resort of Ifrane; Erfoud, the gateway to the Sahara desert; and Rabat, Morocco’s vibrant capital where you'll visit the relics of Chellah, a city built by the Romans in 40 AD. 

From the Middle Atlas mountain range and Ziz Gorges to arid desert, this budget-minded Morocco holiday will amaze you with spectacular scenery. This affordable tour of Morocco truly is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
