TOP 3 Best Tours in Morocco:
If you are arriving in Casablanca and staying for 10 days or less, you will have a great opportunity to really explore the north of Morocco. This is where you will find more Imperial cities, more French (and some Spanish) influence, and many craftsmen and artisans. Explore cities like Casablanca, Rabat, Meknes, Moulay Idriss. Each has its own flavour. You won’t find many cities in Morocco that are “the same as” other cities in Morocco. Visit the site of Roman Ruins in Volubilus while you are in the area of Meknes.
Take a night or two to travel into the Rif Mountains and discover the magic of the Blue City of Chefchaouen. Nestled in the mountains it is an oasis of calm beauty. Take a day trip up to Tangier and see this mysterious and storied port city up close.
You will also have time to head down to Fez where you can spend an entire day touring the ancient medina. Visit the oldest university in the world, founded in 859 AD. (By a woman!) See artisans plying their trade in copper corner or the many pottery shops. Visit the world famous tanneries while you are there.
If you have a chance to arrive in Marrakech, or if you choose to transfer there from Casablanca (it’s only 3.5 hrs drive) then you are all set for a tour of the south. Best done in 5 or 6 days the south offers something completely different. If you have time, maybe 9 days or more will easily get you to the Atlantic Coast at Essaouira.
In the south, things are different. You will experience the ancient and modern living side by side in Marrakech. Travel through the High Atlas Mountains to visit Berber villages set on hilltops. On the southern side of the mountains you will start to encounter vast canyons and steep cliffs that eventually level out to wide river beds and date palm filled oasis. Encounter the native Amazigh people living much that same way they have for centuries in homes made of mud and straw. Pass shepherds tending their flocks as you travel closer and closer to the grand beauty that is the Sahara Desert. Known to have one of the harshest climates on earth, you will enjoy the northern edge of this desert with its camels and nomads and endless miles of dune.
If you are coming to Morocco for 14, 15 days or more, then you can enjoy it all. Take a tour from entry port of Casablanca, travel across the north, through Fes and down the east side to the Sahara Desert. Spend some time meandering back across the south to the western city of Essaouria. Maybe enjoy some time in the mountains or farther south along the coast to the exciting, modern city of Agadir with miles of boardwalk along the harbour and loads of resorts to relax in.
