Day 1: Marrakech

Arrival in Marrakech airport where you will be met by the On the Go guide and transferred to your hotel or Riad in the centre of town. Meet your guide for a tour briefing and then spend the rest of the day at leisure. Explore the vibrant Djemaa el-Fna square in the evening with the snake charmers, story tellers , food stalls and souks all in full swing.

Day 2: Marrakech

This morning enjoy a guided tour of Marrakech, taking in all of the highlights of the Medina (old city centre) - the Koutoubia Mosque, palaces, souks and the old mellah (Jewish quartier). The rest of the day is at your leisure.

Day 3: Marrakech - Fes

Transfer to Fes via the foothills of the High Atlas. You have free time in Fes to explore this medina and surrounds. Looking down on the old quarter from the surrounding hills is a quite an experience in Fes. Muffled sounds of the lively chaotic city add to the appeal.

Day 4: Fes

This morning you have a guided tour of the city and and the afternoon you will visit the ancient Roman city of Volubilis in the foothills of the Middle Atlas mountains. Incredible mosiacs, gates, villas and the forum still remain. In the afternoon, see the town of Moulay Idriss, only open to non muslims in recent history and named after the founder of Fes.

Day 5: Fes - Chefchaouen

Today you will travel through the foot hills of the Rif Mountain and drive to Chefchaouen. Chefchaouen is a beautiful blue door and white-walled medina that was originally a Berber post. Only visited by 3 Westerners up until 920 when Spanish troops invaded, Chefchaouen was once considered a city that was impossible to be visited by a Christian.

Day 6: Chefchaouen - Rabat

Today you travel down to Rabat along the Atlantic coast, passing Asilah and stopping at the Hercules caves on the way. About a million people live in the capital Rabat and its sister city Sale, but wandering around the Medina, the Kasbah or the Modern Town this is not the impression you get, as it doesn’t have a busy capital city feel to it. Spend the evening seeing the Chellah or the city centre.

Day 7: Rabat - Marrakech

After a morning of sightseeing in Rabat you return to Marrakech via Casablanca where you have the opportunity to visit the Hassan II mosque.

Day 8: Marrakech

Today we bid you farewell and transfer you to the airport for your onward flight.
