    Morocco Souks and Sahara

    A Moroccan cultural tour from Fez into the Sahara and Atlas Mountains and on to Marrakech

    Join a small group of adventuresome travelers on an exploration of Morocco's imperial past and vibrant present.  Travel from the Atlantic coast of North Africa through holy cities and Roman ruins, then into the desert and back to Marrakech. Explore the walled medinas (old cities). Wander the fragrant suks (markets). Stay in atmospheric riads (manor homes of the old cities).  Engage the spirit of a land steeped in tradition that is also eager to embrace the future. 

    Begin in Rabat and Meknes. Visit the holy city of Moulay Idriss and the Roman remains of Volubilis. Wander deep into the ancient medina in Fez, experience the breathtaking desert vistas of the Sahara and Todra Gorge en route to Ouarazazate, and behold exciting Marrakech where ancient history and non-stop street entertainment equally entrance those who are fortunate enough to spend time here.

    Lodging on most nights will be in riads -- courtyard mansions which were formerly royal homes.  This trip, a version of which was first offered in spring 2011, is an amazing experience and sure to fill up fast, so don't delay in reserving a place.

    "I loved the camel riding and seeing the desert dunes up close at sunset. The riads were exquisite. The kasbahs were fascinating. " ~Sally C., February 2011
