Moroccan Escape (KMA)

7 days from Casablanca to Casablanca

2019 Tour Details

Your escorted tour of Morocco is an escape from the crowds typically found at busier times of the year. Begin your vacation with a welcome dinner in legendary Casablanca. Follow North Africa’s infamous Barbary Coast to the capital-city Rabat—once the haven for 16th-century pirates—and take a drive to see the massive medieval battlements and Royal Palace. Throughout the week, you’ll encounter incredible historic and cultural sites. Marvel at the architecture and history of Meknes—the 11th-century military settlement, turned into an impressive city in the Spanish-Moorish style by the legendary Sultan Moulay Ismail. On your guided sightseeing tour, you’ll see the monumental gated walls that surround the city, elaborate mosques, the palace, and you’ll also visit the Royal Stables—built by the Sultan to house 12,000 royal horses.

Continue to Fez, considered to be Morocco’s spiritual and artistic center, and see the magnificent entrance to the Royal Palace. Drive through the old Jewish quarter, travel to the traditional entrance to Old Fez at Bab Bou Jeloud, and follow your Local Guide through the labyrinthine streets of its Medina and the remarkable architecture of the Medersa Bou Inania. Next stop is the vibrant oasis of Marrakesh. Explore the “Red City” amid its sandstone walls and buildings with your Local Guide. You’ll visit Bahia Palace, the Saadian Tombs (or Badia Palace), the Djemaa El-Fna town center and colorful marketplace. Return to Casablanca, for panoramic drive to visit the Hassan II Mosque. Then, top it all off with a delicious farewell dinner to celebrate your Moroccan Escape!
