At the crossroads of Africa, Europe and the Middle East, Morocco is a melting pot of culture and custom.
You can feel it in the bustle of the crowded souqs and you can taste it in every aromatic tajine. It’s floating in the air above the High Atlas Mountains and it’s caught in the grains of the endless Sahara. It’s a vibrancy, an urgency, an assault on the senses. It is the essence of Morocco. Play it again, Sam.
What people say
We really enjoyed this trip. It was well-organised, included what we wanted to see in Morocco, and took out the hassle of operating in a foreign language, in a country with little tourist infrastructure to assist the independent traveller.
What people say
Morocco is a wonderful country with beautiful people. Best way to enjoy your holiday. Take part in everything on your itinerary and do extras if you can. Had a great time and would do it all again. Loved it!

Morocco travel highlights
See the Cave of Hercules
Explore the Cave of Hercules in the port town of Tangier, where the hero is said to have rested between labours.
Wander the bazaars of Marrakech
Marrakech is a feast for the senses. Be enticed by the alluring scents and brilliant colours of the spice markets, the sounds of the musicians, the rich folds of carpets, delectable foods, acrobats and perfumed gardens.
Discover the Middle Ages in Fes
Descending into the labyrinthine alleyways of the Fes Medina is like taking a giant step back to the Middle Ages. Preserved by the French for its historical value, it remains a fascinating living museum where getting lost is half the fun.
Chill out at beachside Essaouira
Wander this busy fishing port and follow in the footsteps of Orson Welles, Jimi Hendrix and Ridley Scott, all of whom have been seduced by this artist’s haven.
