Exotic and Mystical Morocco

Immerse yourself with the Moroccan culture, gastronomy and people.

ABOUT EXOTIC AND MYSTICAL MOROCCO TOUR

Morocco, described as being dazzling and beguiling, the hustle and bustle of the various Medinas is intoxicating, the serene calmness of the mountains is invigorating. The enticing smells of the spices and the ochre colour of the mud brick houses will be embedded fondly in your memory.

Experience the country, sea and city as we take you on an exciting culinary and cultural journey of Morocco and its surrounding towns.   The Highlights of our Morocco trip truly covers a diverse country ranging from fertile fields, captivating mountains, desert sands and arid landscapes as well as cities, small towns and mountain villages each with their own unique characteristics and people.

Cities like Fez, Marrakech, and Chefchaouen evoke images of medinas, spice markets, and couscous, while the geographic extremes – from the Atlas Mountains to country resorts to camels in the desert – make it eminently photogenic.

Beaches and Berbers, medinas and mosques, souks and sand dunes… Morocco has variety, mystery, history and an exotic culture that has fascinated travellers since long before the modern traveller arrived.  With knowledgeable and insightful guides and warm and generous locals who truly enjoy showing and sharing their country with you.   During the tour, we visit Medinas, Mosques and markets, as well as discover where the Moroccans make and paint their pottery, dye and make the leather goods, weave the famous moroccan rugs, gather the argan nuts and turn them into product, and buy and eat fresh seafood right off the boats. 

This tour is ideal if you have always wanted to travel to Morocco, but don’t want to travel on your own or deal with all of the arrangements.  To experience as much of Morocco as you can without lifting a finger is easy. Our itinerary will maximize your time so you can experience the many different cultures of a fascinating country.

The trip offers the opportunity to not only experience Morocco’s wonderful landscape, but also to meet the people and to learn about their culture and way of life.
