Daily Itinerary

Day 1 May 1 | Departure 

Depart the USA on your international flight to Morocco. 

Day 2 May 2 | Arrive in Casablanca

Arrive in Casablanca and transfer to your hotel.  Overnight in Casablanca. 

Day 3 May 3 | Casablanca 

Casablanca wove its way into the hearts of Westerners thanks to the classic film starring Bogart and Bergman. Today, it abounds with burgeoning hopefuls seeking their own piece of fame and fortune. Casablanca is a large, modern city, where French colonial vestiges remain only in pockets of the Old City. Handsome Moorish-style buildings, a pirate vibe, and contemporary sophistication meld in this Euro-African city pulsing with energy. Visit Hassan II Mosque and drive by the Sacre Coeur Church on your way to Fes.   Breakfast and overnight in Fes. 

Day 4 May 4 | Fes 

Fes not only claims the oldest university in the world, the University of Al-Karaouine, but a UNESCO World Heritage designation as well! You’ll feel as if you were transported into medieval times as you stroll ancient quarters, take in distinctive Moroccan design patterns, and peer into legacies of craftsmanship. Several civilizations and characteristics meld to create its distinct city vibe – Arab nobility, Andalusian refinement, Jewish ingenuity, and Berber tenacity. Palaces, mosques, schools, astronomers, mathematicians, and religious leaders made this city highly influential in its day.  Visit the Medina of Fes, Medersa Attarine, Tanneries, Karaouine and Andalusia Mosques, and Nejjarine Square. Breakfast and overnight in Fes. 

Day 5 Worship Service in Fes, Scorpion House Private Lunch, and Meknes

Worship with the local congregation at the International Protestant Church of Fes and experience the rich faith of the Moroccans. Then, enjoy breathtaking views during your private, gourmet lunch on the terrace of Scorpion House. Time permitting, discover Meknes, an imperial city with a modern aura. Once home to the sultanate, this city offers all the allure of Moroccan culture without the busy hubbub of many larger cities including the Roman ruins in Volubilis and the holy city of Moulay Idriss. Breakfast, lunch, and overnight in Fes.

Day 6 May 6 | Royal Stopover

Take a slower pace in Rabat, Morocco’s coastal capital. Explore fascinating historical sites, charming boulevards, palace fortresses, and pristine museums. This kingdom capital is the country’s most prestigious location. Visit several cultural sites, such as the Mausoleum of Mohamed V, the Rabat Contemporary Art Museum, and the marina. Breakfast and overnight in Rabat. 

Day 7 May 7 | Marrakech Free Afternoon

Colorful markets, Moorish architecture, and peaceful gardens render Marrakech unforgettable.

Breakfast and overnight in Marrakech.

Day 9 May 9 | Moroccan Cooking Class

Day 10 May 10 | Desert Dinner Experience 

Venture off the beaten path and experience a private desert dinner experience. The Atlas Mountains rise as the perfect backdrop to your truly Bohemian adventure.

Breakfast, dinner, and overnight in nomadic tents.
