Experience of 13 days tour from Tangier:
Day 1 – Tangier – Chefchaouen
Our 13 days tour from Tangier will start when we come to pick you up from wherever you are in the city. Then we will head towards our first destination: the town of Chefchaouen. Chefchaouen is most famous for its iconic white and blue buildings that give the town an unmatched lovely charm. Amongst the other towns of the north, Chefchaouen really is a beautiful blue pearl! You will be free to explore the town throughout the rest of the day however you like. Then we will spend the night at a traditional Riad in the old Medina.
Day 2: Chefchaouen tour and free program
Today again you will be free to explore Chefchaouen however you want. Chefchaouen is a quiet town that attracts people from all around the world for its lovely and hospitable locals and its historical old Medina. Make sure to visit all of the most important locations and attractions that Chefchaouen has to offer, including the main square called Outa El-Hammam, the narrow alleyways of the old medina, the small shops and vendors of artisanal handmade products, and the old fortified Kasbah with its garden, its museum, and its ancient prison cells. Somewhere in the midst of all of this, you will get to have a traditional meal at a local restaurant or café. Finally, we will spend the night in the same Riad as the night before.
Day 3: Chefchaouen – Fes
We will have breakfast first, then we will head to Fez. Fez was perhaps the beating heart of Arab-Muslim culture back in the day, which was made true because of the decisions of king Idriss II. Being home to the oldest ancient Medina in Morocco and the oldest university in the world, Fez has preserved all of its culture and monuments through time, such as The Mosque of the Andalusians, the leather tanneries, and the pottery cooperatives. You will get to try a traditional Moroccan lunch, after which you will visit more monuments, like the Nejjarine and the Medrassas.
Day 4: Fes tour and free program
The city of Fez is considered a protected UNESCO world heritage site, for it still preserves its authenticity from the impact of French colonization. The Old Fez (Fez El Bali) still looks almost identical to what it looked like originally. However, Fez today has expanded and so it contains two more main areas: The new Fez (Fez El Jdid) and the “Ville Nouvelle”. We will go through the Bab Boujeloud gate traversing the main connecting way of Talaa Kebira. Both sides of the street are filled with colorful shops and boutiques. As we keep progressing inside the old Medina, the streets will get narrower and windier; and unlike Marrakech, the streets of Fez are much steeper. In the middle of the Old Medina, you will get a panoramic view over the colorful Chouara leather tanneries. The next thing you will get to visit during our trip to Fez is the world-famous Al-Qarawiyyin University. This university is the oldest in the world, and it is a marvelous work of Islamic architecture. You can visit the Batha museum of Moroccan arts, or explore the Fez Jdid part of the city, including a walk alongside the Royal Palace and around the old Jewish quarter (El Mellah). You get to choose how you want to spend your day! Finally, you will enjoy dinner and spend the night at a hotel.
Day 5: Fes – Ifrane – Azrou – Midelt – Merzouga desert
Today will be a road trip towards the desert at Merzouga, driving through the cedar forests in the Middle Atlas regions, in which you will get to watch wild macaque monkeys in their natural habitat. Then we will stop by the town of Midelt to have lunch while enjoying the views of the Moulouya River. Back on the road, we will drive through another high mountain pass called Tizin Talremt, leading us to the breathtaking Ziz Valley. This valley is famous for its impressive groves of palm trees and beautiful greenery. On our way to Erfoud, we will meet an abundance of old Kasbahs which are fortified buildings used in the past to preserve various precious belongings. After this we will continue driving until we reach the town of Merzouga, arriving at the very famous sea of dunes of Erg Chebbi. We will spend the night at a hotel in the desert.
Day 6: Merzouga desert 4×4 tour and camel trekking
Today we will have breakfast and then leave for our desert explorations, which will include visiting the oases of Merzouga, discovering the traditional Khamlia village known for its indigenous Gnaoua Music, and spending some time with the Berber nomadic families at the desert plateau. We will head back to the hotel to have lunch and prepare for our camel trekking ride through the dunes. You will begin the trek as you will get to ride on the back of a camel, enjoying the breathtaking sunset over the desert dunes. After about an hour and a half ride, the camels will take you to the desert camp where you will enjoy dinner in a relaxing Sahara atmosphere. Seize this opportunity to stargaze in the clear desert night sky, then you can go to bed in your personal tent.

Day 7: Merzouga desert – Todra Gorges – Dades Gorges
We will wake up in time to watch the very special desert sunrise, after which we will head back to our hotel to have breakfast and get to chance to shower. Our next destination will be the Dades valley, which we will reach through Rissani, Erfoud, and Tinejdad. When we’re at Erfoud, we might take a look at one of the local fossilized marble cooperatives. We will then arrive at the beautiful Todra gorges, which is a location that attracts climbers from all over the world for its unique rock formations. After spending enough time discovering the Todra gorges, we will head to the valley of Dades next, where we will have dinner and spend the night in a local hotel or Riad.
Day 8: Dades Gorges – Kelaa Magona – Skoura – Ouarzazate
Today we will start driving towards the city of Ouarzazate, through a valley known as the road of The Thousand Kasbahs. We will pass by the beautiful valley of roses located at Klaat Mgouna and then the oasis of Skoura with its palm groves. After this, we will reach the Hollywood of Morocco: the city of Ouarzazate. Ouarzazate has been given this for being home to the most important movie studios in Morocco, which you can visit during our tour here. We will tour the local cinema museum to discover more about the history of filmmaking in the area, then visit the famous local Kasbah. Finally, you will be provided with an overnight stay at a local hotel.
Day 9: Ouarzazate – Taroudant
After breakfast, we will start driving towards our destination of the day: the city of Taroudant. On the way there we will drive by the town of Taznakht, then make a stop at Taliouine town in order to visit one of the local Safran collectives. We will finally arrive in Taroudant, which you will get to explore by walking through the narrow streets of the old Medina. Taroudant actually shares a lot of aesthetic similarities with Marrakech, for that it received the name of the little Marrakech. We will spend the night in a traditional Riad in the old Medina.
Day 10: Taroudant – Essaouira
We will continue our 13 days tour from Tangier to the city of Agadir, where you will get to walk through a golden sand beach after having lunch. Next, we will resume driving through a road that offers magnificent landscapes, filled with a forest of Argan trees (a specialty of the area). If you’re lucky, you might catch a rare sight of goats climbing Argan trees to munch on their fruits. Finally, we will reach our final destination of the day: Essaouira city; where we will spend the night in a genuine Riad.
Day 11: Essaouira tour and free program
This small and relatively quiet city makes for a nice change from the busy pace of Marrakech. You will get to explore the city through a guided tour that includes a walk along the seafront rampart called the Skala, lined with some old canons installed by European engineers during the 18th century. Besides that, there’s the old Medina part of the city, which is considered a UNESCO world heritage site, that you really can’t miss visiting. We will have dinner and spend the night in a hotel at the heart of the old Medina.
Day 12: Essaouira – Marrakech
This next day, we will leave the beautiful Essaouira behind and then drive to our next destination, which is the red city of Marrakech. Once we get there, you will be free to explore the city for yourself for the remainder of the day. We will spend the night at a hotel in Marrakech.
Day 13: Marrakech tour and free program
