Learning about Morocco
Excellent journey via Marrakech, Casablanca, Rabat, Minds, Fez, and the desert, suggested 100 × 100 and with a 10-person guide/driver team, to be repeated soon.

Marcos H

Fantastic adventure!

We took a 14-day journey from Marrakech to Dades, Mergouza desert, Ifran, Fez, Chaouen, Rabat, and Casablanca, which Hammid coordinated and handled flawlessly.
The accommodations were excellent and the location was ideal. Riad Zaki in Marrakech and Riad Pacha in Fez, to name a few! Hassan and Ali, our drivers, were really kind and helpful! Sleeping in the desert was a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
Without a question, I would contact Travelers in Morocco again for another pre-Morocco holiday.

Adam S

Morocco was a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Hamid meticulously planned a 14-day trip for us.
Marrakech, Dades, Mergouza Desert, Fez, Chaouen, Tangier, Rabat, and Casablanca were among the places we visited...
To tell that we are thrilled with the vacation and a fantastic time that would not have been possible without your assistance.
Also, mention Ali and Hassan, the drivers, who are really kind folks with a lot of experience! At all times, you are watching out for us.
Thank you very much for everything, friends! We've been missing you...
The accommodations were all excellent and well placed. To top it off, the night in the desert was a blast!
If you are considering a trip to Morocco and are unsure where to begin, I suggest this firm. Get in touch with Hamid!
Hamid, Ali, and Hassan, thank you for everything!!!!

Audrey C

Morocco is a lovely place.

My time with Morocco Travelers could not have been more enjoyable. Hamid put up a schedule that was fully adapted to our preferences: we wanted to depart Casablanca and arrive in Marrakech, and that is exactly what we got. Hassan met us at our Casablanca hotel and drove us to Fez, Merzouga, Ourzazate (the filming location for Lawrence of Arabia), and Marrakech. Hassan is a lovely young guy who treated us well and taught us a lot about Morocco (he even tried to teach us how to speak Berber).

The accommodations they recommended were excellent, as were the tour guides who toured us around the towns. The hue of the sand, the dromedaries, the sound of the bongos? Our stay in the desert was amazing.
I would not only repeat this journey, but I will (from Tangier to Rabat), and I hope I will be able to do it with Viajeros por Marruecos.

Highlights overview of 14 days from Casablanca:

Casablanca, the country’s economic capital:

Casablanca is the first city on our 14 days tour from the Casablanca itinerary that we will visit. It has been inhabited since the 7th century when the Berbers established it. With a population of 3.36 million people in 2014, it is now Morocco’s biggest city. The French colonized Morocco. As a result, most cities, including Casablanca, are built in the Moorish style. Casablanca is also located in the Casablanca Settat region, which has an area of 220 km2.

There are several places to see and activities to do here. To begin, no trip to Casablanca is complete without a visit to Hassan II’s mosque. With a minaret of 210 meters (690 feet), it is the second-largest in Africa and the seventh-largest in the world. It was also designed by French architect Michel Pinseau and constructed by Bouygues. It’s also the only mosque in Morocco that permits visitors to see inside.

The cornish of Ain Diab is the second sight to see in Casablanca, and it is also the most touristy due of its cafés, restaurants, and elegant hotels.

Rabat

Rabat, Morocco’s capital city: Rabat is the country’s real capital and one of the country’s four recognized imperial cities. The Almohad Caliphate has established in 1146. With a population of almost 580,000 people in 2014, it is now Morocco’s seventh biggest city. Rabat is located in the Rabat-Sale-Kenitra area, which is split into 12 regions.

This city has a lot to offer; there are several things to see and do. For example, the Hassan Tower or Tour mosque in Rabat is well-known. Yaqub al-Mansur, the third caliphate of Almohad, erected it in 1195. The mosque’s minaret is presently 44 meters tall. If Al Mansour hadn’t died in 1199, it was supposed to be the world’s biggest at 86 meters. In addition, it has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995.

Les Udayas or Oudayas Kasbah is the second finest item to see in Rabat. Yaqub al-Mansur, the third caliphate of the Almohad dynasty, constructed the city in the 12th century. It’s also at the mouth of the Bou Regreg River.

Tangier is the Moroccan entry point.

Tangier is the northern entrance of Morocco. Morocco Tangier is not included in any of our tailored desert adventures in Morocco. That isn’t to say it isn’t a worthwhile destination to visit.

Tangier is a Moroccan port city located in the Tanger-Tetouan-Al Hoceima area, which includes the Rif Mountains. It is also the capital and largest city in Morocco’s northwestern region. There are several attractions to see here:

First and foremost, Tangier is known for the American Legation Museum, a fortified US government structure located outside of the nation. It’s also a gift from Sultan Moulay Suliman Ben Mohamed to be the first to declare the United States’ independence.

Second, you should not visit Tangier without going to the Hercules Archaeological Cave. It’s approximately 14 kilometers from Tangier’s city center, on the point of Cape Spartel. He remained here while attempting to take the three golden apples from Libya’s golden garden. Furthermore, the cave’s sea mouth is formed like a map of Africa, which makes it quite intriguing and popular with travelers.

Third, one of the most appreciated activities in Tangier is roaming along the beach and the ancient Medina. You can almost see Spain from the top of the ancient Medina, which is 14 kilometers distant.

Chefchaouen:

Chefchaouen, Chaouen, Morocco’s blue gem. The blue and white structures in this town are well-known. It’s found in the Rif Mountains, which are formed like goat horns. In Berber, horns denote Iskawn, which is followed by Chaouen and Chefchaouen. Furthermore, Sherif Moulay Ali Ben Rachid constructed this settlement in 1471 as a tiny Kasbah to defend against Portuguese incursions.

In 1471, Chefchaouen was not painted blue. In 1492, however, the Ghomara, Spanish, and Jewish convert it to blue. Some believe it was painted to seem like the sky, while others claim it was done to keep mosquitos away. Chaouen, without a doubt, offers itself as a tourist destination with several sights to see and discover. To begin, the Ethnographic Kasbah was the first structure constructed in Chaouen. Keep in mind that a kasbah may also refer to a stronghold, and this one includes roughly 11 turrets, some of which can be climbed for a perspective of Chaouen.

Second, a visit to the Ras El Ma waterfalls is a must-do when going through Chefchaouen’s blue walls. Locals may be seen washing their clothes here, while many visitors can be seen appreciating the scenery of the spring.

Furthermore, for those who like trekking, there is a stunning panoramic view of the whole city to the east of Chaouen. You may also watch the sunset from there.

Still, walking about the city and admiring its stunning architecture is the greatest thing to do. You may also visit Wetat Lhmam Square, where you can drink a mint tea while listening to the natives amuse you with their music.

Fes, Morocco’s cultural capital:

Fes is one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations because to its rich culture. As a result, we create personalized excursions in Morocco to or from this location.

In 789, the Idrisid dynasty established Fes. It is also known for the historic portion of the city, Fes El Bali, which is built with Marinid medieval architecture. Fes is definitely a worthwhile stop on our 14 days tour from Casablanca. There are numerous interesting locations to explore in Fes, particularly in the ancient town.

To begin, the University Karaouiyn, also known as al-Qarawiyyin, is the first intriguing thing to see in Fes. After Alma Mater Studiorum in Bologna, Italy, it is the world’s oldest and continually operational university. It was also created as a Madrassa or school for teaching the Quran by Fatima Al Fihri in 859. After then, they convert it into a university.

Second, Fes has a number of historic universities. The Madrasa Bou Inania, for example, was established in 1351–56 by Abu Inan Faris and is a popular tourist destination. Al Attarine, built by the Marinid monarch Uthman II Abu Said in 1323, is another Madrassa.

Third, no trip to Fes is complete without a visit to the leather district. The Tannery of Chouara, which was founded in the 11th century, is the most renowned of the three tanneries. Not to mention the stench, which will need the use of mint leaves to mask the odor. A photograph has been provided.

Fourth, the Marinid tombs, which were erected in the 14th century and provide a panoramic perspective of Fes, are a high point of the city. You may tour the structures as well as have a bird’s-eye view of Fes from the top. The Borj Nord also offers a different perspective of the city.

Ifrane, Morocco’s Little Switzerland:

Ifrane is Morocco’s most attractive and cleanest city. As a result, we don’t want to miss out on seeing it throughout our 14 days tour from Casablanca.

Ifrane is known for Al Akhaweyn University, which is one of Morocco’s most costly institutions. Students come from all around the globe to study, not only Moroccans.

As previously stated, the monarch of Morocco possesses 12 palaces. One of them is just in front of the university in Ifrane.

We usually make a pit break in this city near the park where the Atlas Lion monument is located. During the French colonization, a German prisoner carved it in an attempt to obtain his release.

Furthermore, Ifrane is the home of Morocco’s Atlas Lions football club. They come to train here since Ifrane is located at a high elevation, which allows them to breathe properly.

In addition, many Moroccans come here to snowboard throughout the winter months of December, January, and February.

A visit to the monkeys in the Cedar Forest.

The Cedar Tree Forest in Azrou is one of Morocco’s largest woods in the Atlas Mountains. The atlas lion in Ifrane used to reside here, along with a variety of other creatures. However, it is now extinct and no longer exists. Deer, wild pigs, wolves, and squirrels are among the numerous species that call this place home. The monkey, on the other hand, is the only animal you’ll see here if you happen to be passing by. It’s a Barbary Macaque species that live in groups. It’s also known by a variety of names, including magots and Barbary apes.

We will make a brief stop on our Casablanca tour to feed and hydrate these animals. They are kind and do not demand anything from others.

Ziz Valley and Errachidia Dam:

Errachidia is the gateway to the Sahara from Fes, located in the Daraa Tafilalet area. It is also located at the very extremity of the Atlas Mountains. Imtghern, or Ksar Souk, was the city’s initial name in Berber, and it meant “market village.” In 1975, Moulay Rachid, Morocco’s prince, changed the name to Errachidia.

The Hassan Addakhil dam, named after Al Hassan Addakhil, the founder of the Alaouite dynasty, the present Moroccan royal family, is located near Errachidia. The water for the whole Errachidia province comes from this dam.

Ziz Valley:

You may have heard that Erfoud is known for its dates-fruit festival. As a result, the Ziz valley has a significant influence on this; it is the largest source of dates palm trees, and the river is around 282 kilometers long. The distance between where there are dates palms and where there are no dates palms is around 50 kilometers. We will make a brief stop at the panoramic vista of Ait Chaker as part of our 14 days tour from Casablanca to savor the scenery and snap photographs.

Erfoud, the city of dates and fossils:

The name Erfoud comes from the name of a plant in the river named Onfoud, which was colonized by the French in 1912. It is also supposed to have been called after two Berbers who attempted to cross the river. When one of them arrived at the middle, the other inquired how high the river was, and the response was “Ar Afoud,” which means “to the knee.” After then, they gave it a name.

Erfoud, also known as Arfoud, is known for its date fruits and mineral fossils.

Fruits of the Dates Festival:

As previously said, the Ziz valley or river is densely forested with dates palm trees. In October, they have an international dates festival in Erfoud for three days. It’s known for its large hall, which sells a variety of dates as well as local clothing…

Mineral fossils:

Erfoud is one of Morocco’s most major mineral fossil exporting towns. They may find a variety of varieties here. For example, the Trilobites, which are arthropods. Goniatites, orthoceras, and crinoids are also present. So, if you’re interested in fossils and geology, this is the place to visit. Allow us to show you around Morocco with our 14 days tour from Casablanca.

Rissani, the capital of Tafilalet:

Rissani is a tiny town in the Daraa Tafilalet area of Errachidia province. After Merzouga, it is the nearest city to the Erg Chebbi Sand Dunes. It was also a trading post for the touaregs who used to come here to trade. Furthermore, it is the location of Moulay Ali Cherif’s grave or mausoleum. He is the first grandfather of Moulay Cherif, the Alaouite Dynasty’s founder.

Rissani is a worthwhile destination with many interesting things to do and see. To begin with, Rissani is known for its pita bread, also known as Lmdfouna Lfilalia. There are several varieties. They prepare it with nuts, meatballs, vegetarian, and salmon, for example. Second, there is a market or Souk on Tuesdays, Saturdays, and Thursdays. Some villagers are now trading or selling donkeys. As a result, Rissani is known for its donkey parking. There is also a yard where sheep and goats are sold at this time.

Third, like other Moroccan towns, Rissani has a gate, which is curved and constructed in the Morrish style.

Merzouga, the Sahara desert:

Merzouga, the Sahara desert, is the greatest and most memorable part of our Morocco 14 days tour from Casablanca. It’s in the province of Errachidia and the Daraa Tafilalet area. It is also around 50 kilometers from the Algerian border.

Merzouga is known for the Erg Chebbi Sand Dunes, which draws a large number of people for a variety of activities.

First and foremost, you must have a camel ride in Merzouga, which is regarded as the greatest and most memorable of all Morocco excursions. Some visitors go up the dunes to see the sunset or dawn, while others hike up the dunes to spend the night in Berber tents.

Second, many visitors choose to spend the night in Berber tents after taking a camel ride. There are nomads that live in tents among the dunes, moving from one location to the next in search of better living circumstances. As a result, many visitors want to live that life and arrange an overnight stay, which is the second-best thing to do in Merzouga.

Finally, while visiting the Merzouga desert, quad riding is a pastime worth considering. You may hire a local ATV to go sandboarding on the dunes; this sport is best done after it rains since the sand becomes dry and simple to drive on.

Last but not least, there is a lovely lake in Merzouga, around 4 kilometers from the city center. It is here where the immigrant flamingo birds and camels go herding while they are not working.

Dades and Todgha Valley:

Morocco is a nation of contradiction and mystery, where you may find practically whatever you want. The enormous canyons of Todgha gorges, which are around 300 meters (984 ft) high, appear here. The river running through the center is the most magnificent feature. Here, we see nature’s might, the might of water that might carve a path through the rocks as a spring. It’s also wonderful water to drink. Furthermore, the majority of the residents who live near the mountains come here with their donkeys or horses to get water. It’s a worthwhile destination. As a result, it’s part of our 14 days tour from Casablanca.

The Dades Valley, also known as the Dades Gorges, is a watercourse that runs between the red city of Marrakech and the Sahara desert near Merzouga. As a result, most travelers stay here overnight to break up the journey and experience all of the sights. Apart from the river scenery, there are two primary things to see and do here. For starters, a section of the mountains is formed like monkey toes. Second, the Caddilac automobile has placed an advertisement on the Tissdrine bends. Then, because of the lovely view of the road from the summit, it became a worthwhile site to visit.

Ouarzazate, the city of cinema:

Ouarzazate, in Berber Warzazat, is made up of two words: War, which means “without,” and Zazat, which means “noise.” This little town was formerly a stopover for African merchants who came to purchase, sell, and exchange salt, mascara, and other goods. They came to a halt near the Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou, though.

There are a few places worth seeing here. To begin with, Ouarzazate is known for the Kasbah of Taourirt, a 300-room labyrinth. If you wish to enter, you’ll need a ticket.

In addition, Ouarzazate is known for the Atlas Studios, where films were made and equipment were rented to shoot others in the Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou. The Oscar studio is one of the most well-known.

Not to add that Ouarzazate is home to Africa’s largest solar power plant. Because Ouarzazate is the gateway to the Sahara, it is very sunny, particularly in the summer, when temperatures reach above 50 degrees Celsius. As a result, they take advantage of it and construct solar panels to create electricity.

The Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou is one of Morocco’s numerous Kasbahs.

The Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou, however, is the most renowned and frequented. You may or may not understand what a Kasbah is. It is a Berber-Arabic term that meaning Bamboo; its original spelling is Kasab, and the Bamboo and the castle are linked by the fact that the stronghold’s roves are made of it. You could also hear the Arabic phrase Ksar, which refers to the King’s Palace.

The Kasbah has two major entrances, one from the bridge and the other from the main gate, although both require crossing the Maleh river. However, the ideal option is to cross from the bridge and then cross the river on your way back.

The Berber African Touaregs are famed for their Kasbah, and you may have heard of Tombouctou 52 days. It’s how long it took them to go to Rissani, Morocco, to trade. Then they returned with their camel caravan to The Kasbah to trade once again. They used to buy and sell slat Mascara, cole, and other items. They usually sold salt near the Kasbah, in the river. The river is now known as Oued El Maleh, which translates to “salty river.”

The Kasbah has a stunning panoramic view of itself from the summit. There’s also a chamber there where they stored the products for subsequent dealers.

Not to add that the Kasbah has been used as a filming location for a total of 21 films. For example, a scene from the well-known British-American film Gladiator was filmed on a yard where gladiators used to fight. They also appeared in the film Lawrence of Arabia. As a result, it is a well-known destination for tourists to visit and explore.

Marrakech is a cultural, economic, Saharian, and tourism city in Morocco.

Marrakech is regarded as the world’s first tourist destination, with over 3 million tourists in 2019. As a result, it is included in our 14 days tour from Casablanca due to its well-known attractions.

Abu Bakr ibn Umar ibn Ibrahim ibn Turgut of the Berber Mauritanian clan Lamtuna established Marrakech. It is also Morocco’s fourth-biggest city.

Jamaa El Fna:

There is much to see and do in this city. To begin, Marrakech is known for the Jamaa El Fna Square, which attracts visitors from all over the world in addition to residents. It’s also where the snake charmers perform, playing the flute and causing snakes to dance to the music. Furthermore, it is here that individuals do Halka, a street performance in which they gather people in a circle and narrate various tales and speeches to them.

Mosque of Koutoubia:

The mosque of Koutoubia, which faces Jamaa El Fna Square, is maybe the second most popular place to visit. With a 77-meter minaret and an 8-meter spire, it is Marrakech’s biggest mosque. The mosque is known by a variety of names. For example, it was formerly known as the booksellers because people used to sell books on the yard in front of it. Most significantly, it was constructed in 1147 by Abd al Mu’min ibn Ali. Furthermore, this mosque is a sister to the Hassan Tower mosque in Rabat and the Seville mosque.

Majorelle Garden:

Majorelle’s garden is located in Gueliz’s historic Medina. He was a French artist who fell in love with Morocco and decided to make his home there. Every year, around 900000 people visit this garden. It’s no surprise that it took Jack over 40 years to construct. After he died, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, two French painters, arrived to finish it and offer it to the public. A ticket of 70DH=7 euros is required to visit this garden. However, the price changes if you have certain IDs, such as a student ID.

In Marrakech, our 14 days tour from Casablanca comes to a close.
