What will we see on the tour?

For those arriving from other countries, our service starts at Casablanca airport, where our driver will be waiting for you with a private vehicle for the transfer to the city center. If you are already in Casablanca, we will coordinate a convenient meeting point, such as your hotel.

Our first stop will be the majestic Hassan II Mosque, located on an artificial peninsula overlooking the sea and noted for having one of the tallest minarets in the Islamic world, at 200 meters. Fortunately, it is one of the few mosques that allows access to non-believers, so we will have the opportunity to admire its interior.

After the visit, we will drive to Rabat, less than an hour’s drive from Casablanca. As the country’s capital and one of Morocco’s Imperial Cities, its historic center, declared a World Heritage Site, is home to such wonders as the 12th century Hassan Tower and the Kasbah of the Oudayas. From the kasbah, we will enjoy spectacular views of the city and Salé, on the other side of the Bu Regreg river.

The exploration of this fascinating city will be free, which will give you the opportunity to organize the itinerary according to your preferences, with our recommendations. Do not miss other points of interest such as the Mausoleum of Mohamed V, the souk of the medina or the Mohamed VI Museum of Modern Art.

This second day of the circuit is particularly enriching in historical and artistic aspects. We will start the day with breakfast at the riad in Rabat before embarking on a road trip with significant cultural stops.

Our first stop will be at the ruins of Volubilis, a spectacular archaeological site that represents the best of the Carthaginian and Roman era in North Africa, once a vital city of the Roman province of Mauritania Tingitana. There, the columns of the temple of Jupiter, the arch of Caracalla and the splendid mosaics bear witness to its greatness in the second and third centuries A.D., in addition to the Carthaginian vestiges.

En route to Meknes, we will detour to Moulay Idriss Zerhoun, a town that retains its original essence and until recently was restricted to non-Muslims, still maintaining an authentic and unique character. After a brief stop, we will continue to Meknes, a city with an impressive monumental legacy from the time when it was the capital under Sultan Moulay Ismail in the 17th century, highlighting the iconic Bab Mansur Gate and the Sultan’s mausoleum.

We will conclude the day arriving in Fez, where you will have free time for a first impression of this imperial city, with its rich religious and cultural heritage. The night will be spent in a riad inside the medina, in anticipation of the guided tour the next day.

In addition, the afternoon will be the perfect time to go shopping and purchase valuable leather, wood, ceramic or metal items in Fez’s renowned handicraft stores.

Our road then winds through the Route of the Thousand Kasbahs and the Valley of the Roses, where flowers not only beautify the landscape but are also the basis of a thriving cosmetic industry and local festivals.

The final destination of the day is Ouarzazate. Here we will have dinner and spend the night in a hotel.
