On this fascinating 14-day small group journey, your eyes and heart are opened to a truly foreign land, an age-old culture, and genuinely hospitable people. Begin with a tour of the Moroccan capital, Rabat, and cross the river to Sale for lunch in a private home. Visit Volubilis’ Roman ruins, one of five UNESCO sites you encounter. Travel on to Fez with its fascinating medina, and embark on a sunset camel excursion to Merzouga’s breathtakingly beautiful sand dunes. View spectacular scenery en route to Ouarzazate in the snow-topped High Atlas, including dramatic Todra Gorge, and travel the fabled “Route of a Thousand Kasbahs.” Stop at the village of Ait ben-Haddou, a UNESCO site. In alluring Marrakech, your walking tour of the medina ends in the city’s heart, Djemaa el Fna Square. Your final destination: storied Casablanca, where a highlight is your visit to the magnificent Hassan II Mosque.
