Day 6: Rabat

Spend the day relaxing and visiting the Chellah and Hassan Tour and parts of the capital city. 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. Being the capital, it has the actual royal palace and the Kings' mausoleum. Inaugurated in 1967, the mausoleum first housed independent Morocco's first king, Muhammad 5 (who died 1961). Later, the second king, Hassan 2 and his brother, Moulay Abdallah have been buried here too.

Day 7: Rabat - Fes

Travel from Rabat to Fes via the Imperial city of Meknes and the Roman city of Volubilis. The oldest and largest medieval city in the world, Fes is a bustling hive of activity. The medina is a must – a heady mix of aromas, sounds and sights from the tanneries, spice tubs, carpets, pottery and leather goods. There are still some 200,00 people that live in the Medina, which has an old world feel to it. To navigate, follow the tourist circuits or hire a guide, as it is very easy to get lost within the medina! There are 5 circuits, each with a different colour, each with a different theme, such as palaces and gardens, traditional crafts etc.

Day 8: Fes

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