No less than four imperial cities have in their time been the capital city of this amazing, mesmerising land - Meknes, Fez, Marrakesh and Rabat, today’s capital and royal city built in 1146 AD by the Berber king Abd al-Mu'min of the Almohad empire. Your tour of Morocco will show you the very best of them all - although we begin in romantic Casablanca. Play it again, Sam.

Just ten miles from Europe across the Straits of Gibraltar, Morocco feels like a very different world. But large parts of it are far from the hot, dry, dusty desert interior that many imagine. There are wonderful gardens, olive groves, lakes, rich coastal plains and humid cloud forests. You’ll travel on your Moroccan

tour through the stunning Atlas Mountains and past rolling fertile hills covered with fragrant wild flowers and vineyards redolent of Mediterranean Europe. Moroccan architecture too is as rich, alluring and varied as the landscape itself – a fascinating and exotic mix that reflects the Berber, Spanish, French, Moorish and Islamic influences that have shaped this culturally diverse country over thousands of years.

Your tour in Morocco will often feel like being transported back in time. The reminders of the powerful Berber and Arab dynasties that ruled the land from the 11th century - as well as the protectorates of Spain and France that preceded Moroccan independence - are all around you in the

historic cities, ancient mosques, immense palaces, beautiful mosaics, noisy souks and pervading, heady aromas.

As you travel on your tour of Morocco through its many varied regions, you’ll also feel their very special ethnic and cultural legacies and differences. They’re even reflected in the cuisine – mint and olives from Meknes, oranges and lemons from Fes, and saffron from Tiliouine. But one thing unites the country like nothing else – the all-important atai (green tea) that’s the common drink of hospitality. There’s no polite way to refuse it.
