Trips to Morocco include a range of iconic sights, none more spectacular than the Atlas Mountains – North Africa’s most imposing mountain range, which separates the Mediterranean and Atlantic coastlines from the Sahara Desert and provides an ever-present backdrop to Marrakesh.
Morocco is perhaps most famous for its major cities - particularly Marrakesh, which boasts a rich history, unique architecture, and delicious local cuisine. On our escorted tours of Morocco, you will experience everything this great city has to offer, including the stunning medieval ramparts that surround the varied stalls and vendors within the maze-like medina. Any Morocco tour should include a trip to Jemaa el-Fnaa, the bustling square within Marrakesh’s old city. The square plays host to food stalls, snake charmers and a host of traditional Moroccan storytellers, musicians and performers, and is a truly unique and mesmerising experience. Our guided tour of this vibrant city will also include the stunning Saadian tombs, which date back to the 16th century, and contain some of the most highly intricate carvings you are ever likely to see.
Outside of Marrakesh there is also plenty to experience in Morocco, including Essaouira, a 15th century coastal town with a rich and varied history, not to mention some incredible architecture and local beaches. Be sure to try the local cuisine, with Moroccan food always packing a punch of zesty and aromatic flavours. Our favourites include tagine, zaalouk, and the delicious khobz – a crusty wood-fired bread served with many meals.
