ITINERARY

Once you dock at Tangier Port, you will meet your tour manager and driver to begin your journey to Fez, stopping along the way at various noteworthy places. Our staff will take you to visit Volubilis first. Volubilis was an important city in the imperial Roman department of Mauritania (modern-day Morocco) during the reign of Caracalla. Volubilis is impressively well preserved and the genius of Roman urbanism is still intact. A local guide will take to the site and give best a most informative tour. 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.

Just on the next hill, you will cross the valley of Zerhoun to the venerated citadel of Moulay Idris, founded in the 8th century by Moulay Idriss 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 town is an emblem of Moorish architecture an ambiance. Lunch will be in its medieval open square to be introduced to small eateries and local tasty Moroccan cuisine.

You will reach Fez in the afternoon. Fez is indeed the center of Moroccan intellect and prestige. This ninth-century Medina of Fez is a piece of preserved Moroccan history that still live the medieval existence of yesteryear. Your local guide will give you an introduction to this world heritage city by UNESCO. You will visit the sights on the outside of the ancient walled Medina, including the ramparts, the gates, and the Borjs (Moorish Forts). After this introductory aperitif to Fez, you will dine in your hotel and prepare for tomorrow walking tour of the Medina of Fez!

Unique and undeniably fascinating, Fez stimulates the senses with its lively sounds, visual splendor, and evocative smells.

Our specialized guide will take you on a historic discovery of the city of Fez starting at the King’s Palace and its Meshwar with ramparts and majestic gates. You will also explore the Jewish quarter, a 15th-century citadel with all its Moorish maze architecture and medieval glory. Visits to Sephardic synagogues and mausoleums of holy Rabbis will be the highlights of this part of town.

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 to leave your vehicle and 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.

The first guilds you will immediately encounter are the cobblers, the saddlers, and blacksmiths interlaced by some caravansaries for tribesmen who come from the surrounding areas to trade and supply their needs. Spend the full day exploring the marvels of the old city of Fez. You will return to your Riad for dinner and a good night sleep.

After breakfast, we will travel to Marrakech visiting rural environs of the Atlas Mountains’ Berber villages, wards, and nomadic settlements.

To gain time we will deviate to the high way and proceed to Marrakech.

After lunch, you will descend the Atlas Mountains finally arriving in the foothills which overlook the magnificent oasis city of Marrakech Alhamra. 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 tour will cover many impressive sites, including the Koutoubia Minaret (which is identical to la Giralda, a tower found in Sevilla, Spain), and the Saadien 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 Marjorelle. Finally, you will return to your hotel for dinner and other accommodations.

In the morning, after your breakfast, you will depart for Rabat, the capital of Morocco. You will reach Rabat, a city styled in a spaciously elegant European grid, yet slightly aware of its modernity. Rabat and its twin city Sala Colonia are separated by only a river but are historically worlds apart. They have an ancient legacy that spans hundreds of generations. Each civilization that has inhabited each of the cities has left its mark, resulting in a wide variety of architectural styles, including those from the Phoenician and Roman eras.

You will spend your day discovering the delights that Rabat has to offer. Your guide will take on a historical and lively tour of this enticing city.
