Marrakech, Morocco is a city of culture and history. It is located in the north of the country and is known for its deep connection to the Berber culture. 

Marrakech has been inhabited since at least 5000 BC and was first settled by Berbers, who were later conquered by the Phoenicians. In 788 AD, it was captured by the Idrisid dynasty. The city was later taken over by Arab forces and became an important cultural center during their rule. It was governed by various dynasties throughout its history, including the Almohads from 1147 until 1269 and the Marinids from 1269 until 1465.

During this time, Marrakech became a center for trade and commerce, particularly for gold and textiles. In 1884, it fell under French control and was officially made part of France in 1912. This was followed by Spanish rule in 1912 until 1956 when Morocco gained independence.

Today, Marrakech is known as one of Morocco's most popular tourist destinations due to its beautiful architecture and vibrant culture

You will finish your tour in the main square of Djemaa Lefna with its story tellers, snake charmers, musicians, acrobats and open air food stalls. You will also have free time to enjoy a soft drink in one of the cafes where you can get amazing panoramic views across the square.

 Kasbah Ait Benhaddou was built in the 16th century as a private home for the Moroccan ruler El Glaoui, who controlled much of the area. It is located in Telouet, Morocco and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The kasbah (kasbah means "castle" in Arabic) was recently used as a filming location for Game of Thrones, which has brought it new attention.

The architecture of Kasbah Ait Benhaddou is inspired by Middle Eastern and Andalucian styles. The building's walls are made from sandstone and date back to the 16th century; they were built by Berbers and Arabs. The castle features traditional arches and windows that overlook orchards, gardens, and palm trees. 

The interior of Kasbah Ait Benhaddou includes several ornate rooms decorated with intricate tile mosaics and painted wooden ceilings with geometric designs. There are also several courtyards on the property where people can sit out under shade trees or enjoy outdoor meals near fountains while they take in views of rolling hillsides covered in grasses or olive groves below them.

The building is made up of several structures that include houses for soldiers, storage areas for weapons and ammunition, and living quarters for the king's family members. The buildings are made from clay bricks that have been fired in kilns; they are then covered with a layer of plaster to make them more durable against the elements.

Cinema Studios Ouarzazate

The city of Ouarzazate is a major tourist destination in Morocco, with a lot to offer visitors. The desert landscape and the beautiful architecture make it an ideal place for filming movies and TV series, and many have been shot here over the years. One of these is Game of Thrones, which was filmed in various locations around Ouarzazate. If you want to see where it all happened (and maybe even get a chance to meet some of the actors), then take a trip to Cinema Studios Ouarzazate.

The city of Ouarzazate is home to a number of very popular film studios, but the most famous are the ones used by the hit HBO series Game of Thrones. The city itself is located in southwest Morocco, near the Algerian border.

Skoura Oasis, Roses Valley and Dades Valley

Skoura Morocco is a small town in Morocco with a population of approximately 4,000 people. It has been a tourist destination since the 1970s, but it remains a quiet town where the residents are friendly and welcoming to visitors.

The area around Skoura is filled with desert landscapes and breathtaking views, which make it an ideal place for hiking and exploring nature. There are also several historical sites to visit within the town itself, including Fort Bab Azoum (an 18th century military fort) and Sidi Ahmed Ben Ali Tomb (a shrine built in honor of a religious figure).

Kasbah Amridil is a traditional Moroccan kasbah (fortified mansion) located in Skoura oasis, an oasis in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco.

The origin of the house is unknown. According to some sources, it was probably built in the 16th century. Other sources claim that it was built by the people of Zagora at the end of the 19th century on top of ruins dating back to Roman times.

In any case, Kasbah Amridil has been preserved as a historical monument 

 Roses Valley:

Roses Valley is a magical place located in El Kelaa Mgouna or Mgouna. It's a real-life wonderland of roses—roses of all colors, shapes and sizes.

Dades Valley:

The village has many interesting features that make it unique, including its location on a hillside overlooking the valley below. The valley extends for about half a mile and has several streams running through it. The streams are lined by olive trees and other fruit trees that provide shade for those who visit here during the summer months when temperatures can reach as high as 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 Celsius). The area also has some beautiful rock formations that include caves and grottos, which were formed over thousands of years by water running through them from rain or underground springs.

 After breakfast, we start our day with a drive towards the Todra Gorges where many of rock climbers come to enjoy their preferred sport.

Todra Gorges or great Canyon of Tinghir:

The Tinghir region of Morocco is home to the Todra Gorges, which are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Toudra Oasis. The oasis has been a stopping point for travelers since Roman times and is known as one of the best places to see wildlife in Morocco.

There are many ways to explore the area around Tinghir. You can walk along the paths that wind up through the Todra Gorges, or you can opt for a more adventurous hike by taking one of the routes that wind down into them. Or maybe you'd rather take a raft trip on one of the rivers that flow from these gorges 

Later we continue our journey, following the ancient Bedouin trading routes parallel with the Middle Atlas, passing a series of the fortified villages with outstanding architecture. The route to Erfoud is one of the most pleasing of all the Southern routes. The town is in a dry red built of desert and was built by the French as a central administration town. It is known for its rich black fossils marble. The stone is sculpted to bring the fossils into relief on everything from ashtrays to washbasins and more. 

We head down to the spectacular Merzouga village, a small town in Morocco that's famous for being the starting point of the desert safari. It's also the site of a camel market, where you can buy camels and ride them through the Sahara desert.

While Merzouga is a lovely town in its own right, there are plenty of things to do in Merzouga itself. You can go on a day trip to visit Erg Chebbi Dunes—the largest sand dunes in Morocco—or participate in other activities like sandboarding and camel rides. Or you can just relax by the pool at one of its many hotels or guesthouses.

Camel ride Experience in Merzouga desert

We leave our vehicle and take a camel ride into the desert to a Berber camp. To seal this as an experience of a life time, why not surf the Sahara Desert and try sand Dunes Boarding! After dinner we gather round the fire and enjoy the desert night perhaps with traditional Berber drums.

Meals: Dinner & Breakfast included.

 Taznakht the capital of Rugs in Morocco

The Taznakht region has been known for its carpet production since the 16th century. In fact, many historians believe that this is where rug weaving began in Morocco.

Taznakht carpets are one of the best-known Moroccan rugs. They are made in the Taznakht region, which is located in the southeast of Morocco. These carpets are known for their vibrant colors, geometric patterns and excellent quality.

Carpets have always been an important part of Moroccan culture and tradition. They were used as a way to decorate homes and provide comfort during cold weather. It wasn't until the late 19th century that they became popular outside of Morocco too! 

Moroccan carpets, rugs and tapestries are some of the most exciting, colorful and intricate textiles to come out of the Middle East. As one of the oldest forms of carpet-making in the world, Moroccan carpets were originally used as bedding for nomadic tribes who moved from place to place with their herds.

The Berbers were among the first people to weave these beautiful carpets in North Africa, and they have been around since at least the 12th century. These days, Moroccan carpets are sometimes referred to as Berber carpets because they're still woven by hand by Berber women in rural areas like the Atlas Mountains or deserts like Erg Chebbi.

The Berbers are known for making a variety of different types of fabrics using wool or cotton on hand looms—including rugs and tapestries—so it's no wonder that their carpets are so stunningly intricate! Many traditional designs include geometric shapes in reds and blues that look almost like stained glass windows from afar. Some designs also feature animals like horses or camels woven into them along with geometric shapes that create a sense of movement within each piece.

Taliouine the Capital of Saffron in Morocco

Taliouine is a town in Taroudant Province, Souss-Massa, Morocco. The city is well known for its production of saffron. It was founded by the Almoravids in the 11th century, who made it a major political and cultural center. The city's name comes from the Berber word "Taliwan" which means "place of caves".

Taliouine is also known as the "Gateway to the Anti Atlas Mountains" or just "The Gateway." This is because it's the closest major town to the Anti Atlas Mountains and they are only about an hour away from it by car.

In addition to its gorgeous location and history, Taliouine is also known as a very safe place to visit. The people who live there are friendly, welcoming and hospitable too!

Taroudant or the small Marrakech

Taroudant is a city in southern Morocco that is known for its medina and walls.

The Medina of Taroudant is one of the best preserved in Morocco, and it was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000. In addition to its beautiful architecture, the medina contains many restaurants, shops, and hotels. Visitors can also explore the nearby beaches or visit the nearby town of Agadir.

The Medina's walls were built during the Almohad dynasty (12th-13th century), which ruled southern Morocco from 1130 to 1269 CE. These walls are still standing today, though they have been renovated several times over the years.

The walls were originally built in the 12th century but have been renovated several times since then. They are still standing today, though many sections have been reconstructed or repaired over time. The walls cover about one kilometer (0.6 miles) in length and 1-20 meters (3-65 feet) in width, with a height ranging from 7 to 10 meters (23-33 feet).

Divider Text
 Today we leave Taroudant towards the coastal city of Agadir virtually destroyed and then rebuilt following an earthquake in 1960, it is the most modern of the country’s cities, but still retains a sense of its past.

Agadir the Moroccan Santa Cruz
The city of Agadir is located in the Souss-Massa-Draa region of Morocco, it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Morocco. The city is situated on a narrow strip of coast, stretching for about 10 km between the Atlantic Ocean and the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. The city lies on its own natural bay, with beaches and coves that are great for swimming and relaxing. 

Agadir was founded by Moulay Ali Cherif in 1030 AD. The city has been used as a port since the 15th century, and it has been controlled by many different countries over the years. In 1907, Agadir became part of the French Protectorate of Morocco and was renamed Port Lyautey after Marshal Lyautey.

In 1956, Morocco regained control of Agadir and changed its name back to Agadir.

Agadir Kasbah or Agadir Oufla, a medieval hilltop fortress that was built by the Berbers in 1540. A few miles out from the city center is Coco Polizzi La Médina d’Agadir, a life-size, open-air recreation of Agadir’s former medina, which was wrecked by the earthquake. Constructed in 1992 using traditional Berber techniques, this place is part museum, part work of art. 

Essaouira or Mogador

The city of Essaouira is one of the most magical places on Earth. The Medina, or old town, is a labyrinth of narrow streets and alleys filled with artisans who work in the ancient tradition of Morocco—there are still goldsmiths who hammer the kifché (a traditional Moroccan bracelet) and shepherds who weave the finest wool blankets.

Essaouira is a city that has been praised for its beauty, culture, and way of life. The city has long been known for its medina and its scenic harbor.

The medina of Essaouira is one of the most beautiful in Morocco. It is a bustling market place where you can buy anything from food to clothing and souvenirs. The walls of the medina are covered with beautiful blue and white azulejos tiles, which look stunning against the golden sandstone buildings.

The harbor of Essaouira itself is equally as beautiful, with colorful houses along its shores and boats bobbing up and down in the water. You can take a boat ride around the bay or just sit on someone's rooftop terrace to enjoy the view.

Meals: Dinner & Breakfast included.

Today you will explore Essaouira, a Famous town for its fine wood- work. Essaouira is also home to the silver souk art galleries and islands.

It’s easy to see why Essaouira is often dubbed the ‘Jewel of the Atlantic’. This place has earned such a following that Orson Welles filmed Othello here in 1949.

You’ll visit the Skala Fortress, the port. Essaouira is a melting pot of locals and foreigners who came and stayed have created a laid back, atmospheric and intriguing resort.

Windsurfers love Essaouira, clean waters and it’s the Atlantic Trade winds that have ensured the large-scale operators stay out and the character stays in.

In the afternoon, we drive back to the starting point which is the red city Marrakech. Check in for the overnight with breakfast at the hotel or Riad.
