Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival in Casablanca

Welcome to Morocco! You'll have to fly to Mohammed V International Airport in Casablanca. Head towards the hotel, drop your luggage and set out to explore the city.

Note: Casablanca city tour is not included in the trip. In case you wish to explore the place, we would suggest you to reach a couple of days before the trip starts, and explore the place. It'll be worthy to take some time to see its medina, beachfront, and classic examples of Art Deco architecture.
 

Day 2 - Casablanca to Tangier

It's time to head towards the north of the country and travel to the coastal town of Tangier. It is located on the Maghreb coast at the western entrance to the Strait of Gibraltar, where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. Explore the alleys and go for a beachside stroll, and don't forget to try the Moroccan mint tea.
 

Day 3 - Tangier to Chefchaouen

You must have seen those pristine blue lanes in all photos of Morocco - and it's time to witness it in real. Travel to Chefchaouen and explore this beautiful mountain town. You can opt for a traditional hammam (Moroccan steam bath and spa) and feel relaxed! Adventure seekers can go for a hike to the Rif Mountains.
 

Day 4 - Chefchaouen

Known for the striking, blue-washed buildings of its old town, Chefchaouen is the place that's loved by all. You'll get the entire day to explore on your own, so you can either head out for a hike in the Rif Mountains or explore the local weaver's community. And shopaholics - you'll have a blast exploring the markets!
 

Day 5 - Chefchaouen to Fès

Today, you'll be traveling to Fès. Walk around the medina checking out carpet shops, sampling local delicacies at the food stalls or shopping for leather goods. Don't forget to bargain to get the best deals! You must also pay a visit to the Belghazi Museum, housed in an exquisite 17th-century building.

Day 6 - Fès

It's your free day to explore the bustling Medina. Take a tour of the artisan quarters, go for Ville Nouvelle Exploration, and in the evening, sit down to a fantastic meal in a renovated riad, a Moroccan palace that has been transformed into a restaurant. 

Day 7 - Fès to Marrakech

It's again time to hit the roads and travel across Morocco to the bustling city of Marrakech, and enjoy an evening exploring this fascinating city. You might not have enough time today to go out and explore, so best would be to opt for a traditional 3-course dinner in the heart of the medina of Marrakech - Djemaa El Fna square - and enjoy a folklore performance.
 

Day 8 - Marrakech

You have the entire day to explore the city and our trip comes to end as well. In case you wish to spend a little more time here, you can opt to extend your journey. Otherwise, book your flight to head back home or to some other destination.
