Trip Report My experience of 8 day tour in Morocco

Jump to last reply

I had the opportunity to make an 8 days tour in Morocco (Marrakech, Casablanca, Rabat, Meknes, Volubilis, Fès, night in the desert, Dades, Marrakech). I just can say that I will never forget this trip. Our guide took care of us and we could know this beautiful country. He showed us the best places of each city we visited.

First day we arrived to Marrakech airport and he drove us to the Jemma el fna square. We also visit the famous medina, the heart of this beautiful city where you can find dancers, storytellers, jugglers, artisans, merchants, snake charmers, mosques and minarets, palaces and gardens, souks and bazaars. Then we were transferred to the riad.

Second day, we went to Casablanca, this is the economic capital of Morocco. We visited the outside of the Mosque of Hassan II, the Boulevard of Corniche, the Park of Nations and the Mohamed V square. Then went go to Rabat, administrative capital of Morocco. We visited here the Mausoleum of Mohamed V.

Third day we went to the Roman ruins of Volubilis, we continued to Meknes, and finally we arrived to Fez, cultural and religious capital of Morocco.

Fourth day we had a guided visit of Fez, the oldest of the imperial cities of the country, getting close to the Royal Palace and touring the Jewish Quarter, we saw the Medina, typical shops and neighborhoods artisans outside the mosque, the Koranic school, Al Bouanania, and the University’s Quaraouiyne.

Fifth day was the most special for me. We proceed to the desert route through the city of Ifrane, known as the “Moroccan Switzerland”, the cedar forest of Azrou and monkeys until Ziz Valley. Finally we arrived to Merzouga and change our 4×4 by camels for a walk in dromedary deep into the dunes, we watched an unforgettable sunset and spent the night in a Berber camp with typical dinner to the beat of drums. It was unforgettable!

Next day, we told goodbye to the dunes and head Erfoud direction from where we went to Tineghir and Todra. We reached the town of Boulman where another called Dades gorges formed.

Seventh day we crossed the Rose Valley and the city of Ouarzazate, we entered into the Road of Thousand Kasbahs, visiting Ksurs one of the best preserved Morocco: Ait Ben Haddou, a village built in adobe fortress, scene of many international films and declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco. Continuing the route through the High Atlas, we arrived to Marrakech.

Last day we made some shops in the Medina and we were transferred to Marrakech airport.

All was perfect for us, riads, food, culture, people… Ibrahim has been an excellent guide! I will come back in July! This time I will visit Essaouira, Marrakech, Ouzoud waterfalls, Chefchauen, Merzouga desert and coming back to Marrakech. :)
