ITINERARY

Our Tour Manager will be waiting for you at Casablanca airport right after custom services gate to greet and then transfer you immediately to check-in to your hotel in Rabat. This is a wonderful short drive of about 45 miles through the lush farms and nurseries of exotic plants.

You will reach Rabat the capital of Morocco, a green Islamic city styled in a spaciously elegant Moorish grid, yet slightly aware of its modernity. Rabat has an ancient legacy that spans hundreds of generations. Each civilization that has inhabited each of the city has left its imprints, resulting in a wide variety in architectural styles, from the Phoenician and Roman eras to the art deco and modern edifices. Rabat or Ribat al Khair (Islamic Center for studies and worship in Arabic) is holding some of the most sumptuous mosques of all times and ages with a unique style of sandstones décor. Mohamed V Mausoleum is an emblem of Islamic architecture in the west unique to Morocco is an example of sophistication and venerated Islamic art and calligraphy. A Muslim licensed guide will take you on a historic and spiritual tour of the city visit the landmarks of this beautiful metropolis. After Salat al Maghrib in the, Ahl Fes Mosque, you will return to the hotel for a halal dinner and accommodations.

After a halal breakfast, we will proceed on an excursion for the day traveling east in the hinterland covering most of the Moroccan ancient history highlights. The first stop will be the ancient Roman city of Volubilis the place where Islam was introduced at first hand to Berber native. Volubilis was a critical city in the imperial Roman department of Mauritania (modern-day Morocco, and the western Sahara) during the reign of Caracalla. Volubilis is impressively well preserved and the genius of Roman urbanism is still intact. The two central integral streets in every roman castrum, the cardo, and Decumanus, are prominent. The cardo is the boulevard which runs north-south and the Decumanus, east-west. The intersection of the two is the heart of every Roman city. There you will find the ruins of the ancient forum.

In the neighboring hills of the vicinity, the holy citadel of Moulay Idris is nestled. Founded in the 8th century by Moulay Idris al Akbar, grandson of the prophet Mohamed (s.a.w.s), this citadel is considered to be both the cradle of Sufism to Moroccan society as well as the first Islamic capital for the premier Arab dynasty. The city was created primarily for the indigenous population that migrated with Moulay Idris from the middle east. We will break for lunch after Salat Dhuhr at the Maqam of Moulay Idris.

You will drive around 15 miles to the next stop, the imperial city of Meknes. Meknes is a 17th-century city built by Moulay Ismail to rival the ancient Moorish city of Fez. Though the monumental grandiose of Meknes and the power of its founder the Muslim king Moulay Ismail Meknes lived always in the shadow of fez. Meknes is a Islamic royal metropolis considered to be the Versailles of Morocco.

Eventually, you have reached your destination, the ninth century city of Fez or City of Islam as it is referred to. In the evening, you will get a taste of the greatest of the imperial cities. You will visit the sights on the outside of the ancient walled city, including the ramparts, the gates, and the Borjs (Moorish forts). After this introductory tour of Fez, you will dine Halal in your hotel and prepare for day three: Fez!

The full day will be devoted to the historical visit of Fez. Extremely enthralling, fez is a feast for the senses with its haunting yet beautiful sounds, visual splendor, and evocative smells. Fez is most ancient of the imperial capitals and the most complete medieval city of the Islamic world. Fez is reminiscent of a city suspended in time, unfazed by the constantly evolving world outsides of its walls. Fez owes nothing to the world of today, but electricity. Time spent in fez will reveal much about the sophistication of the Moroccan artisan, providing an unparalleled learning experience to those who cross its path. Your morning will be spent visiting the Medina. Our specialized guide will take you on a historic discovery of the city of fez starting at the king's palace and its Luxurious Meshwar (court) with ramparts and majestic gates.

Then, we will drive to the Merinides hill to visit their necropolis. Here you will enjoy the best panoramic view of the old walled medina, brimful with its countless minarets to call for the prayers in a city that has responded to these calls for 12 centuries. Drive down the hills to the gate of Bab Guissa where you will leave your vehicle and walk to enter an ancient world. Fez has preserved its Medina as it was centuries ago. Not even a bicycle is able to be used as a tool of transportation. Only donkeys, mules and horses are able to help to move all that the city produces and needs as supplies.

Your local guide will take to all the Islamic highlights you must visit and give an overview of the historic and cultural aspect of these sites. Walking also in the narrow medieval streets of Fez is an experience in itself among guilds and markets of all colors and sounds. You will end your walking tour and retreat to your hotel for dinner and other accommodations in total luxury.

You will spend your day discovering the rural environs of the Atlas mountains Berber villages, wards, and nomadic settlements. Covered with evergreen pines, tall cedar trees, and poplars, and laced with flowing streams, your first view of the middle atlas will appear oddly Un-Moroccan. Passing by Imouzzer, with a quick stop at the Swiss-like luxury town of Ifrane, you will soon come across the first real town of the middle Atlas, Azrou.<\p>

Azrou is an important market center for the region Berber tribes, located at a major junction of mountain routes. Your driver and Tour Manager will take a little detour in a cedar forest to introduce you to one of the oldest inhabitants of this region, the Barbary apes. This may also coincide with the encounter of a nomadic family at its temporary encampment. As nomads are very hospitable people, whenever we encounter them we are all invited at least for a mint tea under their tents.

At El Hajeb, the Middle Atlas Ranges give way to the high atlas mountains, whose peaks are visible through the haze, soaring to over 12,000 feet. After lunch and dhuhr prayer, we will drop from the Atlas Mountains finally into the foothills which overlook the magnificent oasis city of Marrakech Alhambra. Some of the aforementioned stops will include visits to Berber villages, scenic views, and traditional markets. You will conclude your day with dinner and other accommodations at your hotel.

It was constructed in 1866 for dignitaries, who enjoyed glorious sunsets with the ethereal atlas mountains as a backdrop. The pool also functions as an innovative irrigation system that is serving dry life in the desert.

Your walking tour of Marrakech will cover many impressive sites, including the Koutoubia minaret (which is identical to la Giralda, a tower found in Sevilla, Spain), and the Saadian tombs, which demonstrate Moorish architecture at its best. The tombs consist of sixteenth-century mausoleums, which had lain walled-in and undiscovered until 1917. Next, you will explore the gardens of then the Majorelle. Finally, you will return to your hotel for a halal dinner and other accommodations.

You will begin your day by traveling to Essaouira (Mogador), a picturesque city with a rich history. With a fascinating antiquity, Essaouira was occupied by the Phoenicians and Carthaginians, supplied essential purple dyes to the Romans, absorbed the sophisticated Islamic arts of the silversmith, and spent centuries as a Portuguese enclave. Despite the obvious influence of these civilizations, Essaouira has managed to remain a small, authentic Berber town. Alive with the breath of fresh air provided by the Atlantic, Essaouira is a jewel nestled in the rugged coast, with a vast expanse of empty sands trailing back along the promontory towards the south. After an introductory tour of Essaouira, you will conclude your day with dinner and other accommodations in your Luxury hotel.
