Tour overview:

6 days desert tour from Casablanca via the Imperial cities and the Sahara desert of Merzouga. Join a unique experience with the best local Berber guides. We will take you to visit the famous Grand Mosque of Hassan 2 in Casablanca and the Hassan Tower in Rabat. Not to mention that you will have the chance to visit the oldest existing university in the world, besides the old traditional Chaoura Tannery. In addition, you will spend a night in the desert after having crossed the golden sand dunes on the back of the most-strongest desert animal, the camel. On the other hand, you will cross the most beautiful Berber villages and kasbahs. Here, I am talking about Ait Benhaddou, Amridil, Todra gorges, and many more.

Itinerary:

Day 1: Casablanca - Rabat - Meknes – Fes

The first day of our 6 days tour from Casablanca starts in the morning around 08:00. Firstly, we will come to pick you up and hit the road to the Hassan 2 Mosque to discover it. After that, we will drive directly towards Rabat, the current capital of Morocco.

Arriving at Rabat, we will go on a visit to the Hassan Tower, a minaret of an incomplete mosque. Then, depends on how much time we still got, we would spend more time discovering other places in Rabat. Thereafter, we will hit the road again, this time we will head to the Ismaili capital, Meknes. Before reaching this latter, we will stop by Volubilis, the Roman ruins. When arriving in Meknes, we will start by visiting the Qara Prison, then head to Lhdim square and its surroundings.

Finally, in the evening, we will travel to the cultural city of Fes, have dinner and relax to discover the city the other day.

Day 2: Full day in Fes

After having breakfast in the hotel/Riad, we will start the day and explore Fes. The cultural city has been the capital of Morocco for more than 400 years. With our 6 days tour from Casablanca, we will take you to visit its main attractions. Starting from the oldest existing university in the world that was built by Fatima Al Fihri. Thereafter, you will go on a visit to the Chouara Tannery and discover the old traditional way of tanning. Expect that place would be a little bit stinky because of the leather’s smell.

Further, we will take you to visit the King’s Palace. For sure, one of the best and most beautiful palaces among the eleven ones that the Moroccan king has. The place has seven bronze gates that are just mind-blowing! Next, on the tour, you will discover the old Madina of Fes and its narrow streets.

Of course, there are plenty of places and spots that we have not to mention, but you will have the chance to visit them. Lunch, dinner, and overnight in Fes.

Day 3: Fes - Ifrane - Midelt - Merzouga desert

The third day of our 6 days tour starting from Casablanca is the highlight of all Morocco desert tours. Today will be the longest driving day, but we would make many stops to break the distance down. Firstly, we will stop by Ifrane, Little Switzerland of Morocco. Here, we will have a walk to the Atlas Lion Statue. After that, we will head to the cedar forest in Azrou. The place is famous for being a homeland to the Barbary Macaque, so bring some food for them!

We continue our tour, this time we will cross the beautiful landscapes of the High Atlas Mountains till we arrive at Zaida. Usually, we stop by this place to have lunch or continue to Midelt that is not far from this latter. Afterward, we will cross the cities of Errachidia and Erfoud, where we will visit the Zizvalley and Errachidia’s dam.

Finally, we will arrive at Merzouga and the dunes of Erg Chebbi. We start with a camel ride through the dunes in a charming atmosphere with beautiful views. Arriving at the camp, check-in, leave your luggage, and climb the dunes for the sunset (In case if you arrive early). When the night comes, you will be served a delicious meal and called out to enjoy some Berber instruments around the campfire under the starry sky.

Day 4: Merzouga - Tinghir - Boumalne Dades

Today, you can wake up early in the morning to catch the beautiful sunrise. Then come back take a shower (In case if you book a luxury camp) and have breakfast. Right after, you will have a camel ride back to the place where we started yesterday. We will again hit the road, this time towards Boumalne Dades. Firstly, we will stop by Rissani, the capital of the Tafilalt region. Not to mention that this place is the starting point of the current ruling dynasty in Morocco. Here, you will discover some unique places such as donkeys parking and the traditional souk.

Next, we will hit the road again and pass by Tinjedad and Tinghir. Here, we will stop by the Grand Canyons of Toudra Gorges. After that, we will head directly to Gorges Dades, spend the evening, have dinner and spend the night there.

Day 5: Boumalne Dades - Ouarzazate - Ait Benhaddou - Marrakech

After having breakfast in Boumalne Dades, we will hit the road towards the red city. Firstly, we will stop by Ouarzazate, the Ouallywood of Morocco and one of the important cities in the Southeast east that has an international airport. It is also one of the main sites for shooting movies and series in Africa. Further, we will head to the extraordinary village of Ait Benhaddou. A UNESCO World Heritage Site that is the best example of Moroccan Berber clay architecture. High walls and great towers are the main titles that you can give to this little Ksar. You will have to cross a small river and then climb a little bit in order to more explore the place and get different views.

Our 6 days tour continues, we will cross the High Atlas mountains again, but this time we will take the Tizi Ntichka Pass. This latter is famous for its curves and that panoramic view (An attitude of 2260m), where we usually stop to relax and take some pictures. Because the pass is about 200km, we will make some stops in some beautiful places as the pass is filled with Berber Villages. Arriving in Marrakech, we would go to explore Jamaa El-Fna if we got time to do that.

Testimonials:

Amazing 6 days tour from Casablanca!

I had a 6-day experience with Travelling In Morocco and it was simply extraordinary! We were under Hassan's care the whole time and he made a point of always being helpful and attentive to everyone in the group. We visited several places like the Sahara desert, where we did the dromedary tour, slept in a nomadic camp, and spent one night in an excellent hostel in the middle of the desert. Besides the desert, we explored several places during the 6 days tour from Casablanca. We traveled to Marrakech and also Fes. I strongly recommend this team For Morocco tours!

Morocco in 6 days!

This tour was a big surprise! We were 5 girls, and we didn't know much about what to expect. We were treated like princesses all the time, everything always private, we had no worries at any time!
The differential was our guide/driver Hassan! He speaks perfect English and Spanish, and many other languages. He made the trip super fun and light, and with him, we felt safe 100% of the time! (which was a big concern before going)
Thank you, Hamid and Hassan, for this unforgettable trip!
Wueeewuee Africa!!!!!

Don't be afraid, it is Safe!

I went alone to Morocco. At first, I was a little afraid because we heard a lot about Moroccan culture and how women should behave. From the airport, they went to pick me up and all the guides were extremely kind and very funny. I learned Spanish, French, Japanese, and of course Berber.

Their itinerary is great, I managed to enjoy the whole country and still sleep in the desert in only 6 days and 5 nights. The hotels we stayed in were great, dinners and breakfasts included and delicious. All the places we stopped for lunch were very good too, clean and the food was typical. I didn't spend much out of the amount I paid for the tour, which was great too.
I recommend taking warm clothes because at night it is very windy in the desert (at least at the time I went). Who has cameras with automatic lenses (those that go out at the moment we call), take care in the desert. With the sand, mine spoiled.

The dromedary is a bit uncomfortable, but the view is incredible.
I loved the whole trip and I certainly would do it again!

Lari D

Great Experience!

We made a quick trip of 5 nights and 6 days in Morocco! We were a group of 12 people, and all the time we were accompanied by Hamid and his team! After buying the flight tickets, a friend who had already gone to Morocco indicated the company and said that he liked very much the trip and the service provided by them! Then we entered the crew, we found that really they are a serious and competent team. We contacted Youssef by email and he made the itinerary of our trip, perfect! In a short period of time, we passed through several cities, incredible landscapes, and unforgettable experiences! I am sure we could only see so much because their experience in planning trips made us visit as much as possible. And the truth is that the trip is enchanting.

I fell in love with the desert, the people in the mountains, the simplicity of the people. Indeed it was really an incredible trip. We visited Marrakech, Ait Ben Hadou, Ouarzazate, Dades, The Gorges of Todra, Merzouga Desert, and Travelling In Morocco made a smooth transfer to and from Casablanca.
Hamid is a very nice guide, knows very well the region, culture, besides transmitting joy to the culture of the Moroccan people! It wouldn't change anything on our trip, it was perfect. Thank you very much Travelling In Morocco! If you go to Morocco, I suggest you go with them!

Highlights overview:

Travelling In Morocco, the Moroccan tours agency offers a brief overview of the main destinations that you will be visiting with the 6 days from Casablanca. 

Casablanca, the starting point of our 6 days tour

The region has palm trees around the wide avenues, breathtaking beaches, and a bustling city. Speaking like that, it sounds like a tropical destination, doesn’t it? The place mixes modernity with Muslim and Arabic heritages found in the oldest neighborhoods, outside that the city carries many traces of the colonial era. The main postcard there is the Hassan II Mosque, which is the second-largest in the world.

Marrakech

The city mixes the traditional with the contemporary, which ensures a great experience for visitors. In one part of Marrakech, you will come across places of vibrant colors, oriental aromas, carriage rides, and many architectural riches.

In the other part, you will find wide avenues, luxury boutiques, and festive places. Some tourist points in Marrakech are the Majorelle Garden and the Koutoubia Mosque. Besides the beautiful square of Jamaa El Fna. It is the biggest square in Morocco that carries out the old Moroccan tradition of gathering people. There, you will see many different things such as snake charmers and monkey shows. You can go upstairs in a cafe and enjoy the city light of Morocco, or you can walk around and through the small shops.

Fes

With over thirteen centuries of history, this region is another option for tourists. The architecture calls attention and there are many options of attractions like a great and legendary medina and the beautiful madrassas, names given to the schools of Islamic study. No to mention the oldest existing university in the world, Al Qarawiyin university which was built by Fatima Al Fihri in 859.

Rabat

The Moroccan capital is also worth your visit. The city’s coastline is what attracts tourists the most and, apart from that, there are many green spaces for those who like to have greater contact with nature.

The cultural part is also highlighted, and the streets have works of art and squares. One of the tourist highlights is the imposing Royal Palace, surrounded by a great wall that has a vast patio, school, mosque, and government buildings. Besides the great incomplete minaret of Hassan tower.

Fes

If you are interested in diving into the Moroccan culture. The most incredible and somewhat chaotic city in Morocco is waiting for you! The oldest of the medieval cities in Morocco and the biggest “alive” Islamic medieval in the world, is a real maze of alleys and narrow streets. There is no GPS that can locate you in this place. So, with our 12 days tour from Casablanca, we hire a local guide for you to know every corner and not get lost. At every corner, there is a surprise, stores of all kinds of handcraft that you can imagine, open-air markets, restaurants, and bars with balconies that provide unbelievable views. A vibrant and intense city, nothing describes the experience of living in this city.

Meknes

This is a destination indicated for those who love art, since this city is a true open air museum. Meknès also has constructions that are World Heritage of UNESCO, such as the local medina and the vestiges of the royal palace. In addition there are unique places such as Volubilis the Roman ruins, the old capital of the Mauritanian Kingdom. Not to mention the Qara Prison that goes underground. People say that it extends from the city of Meknes to Fes underground. Also, there is the Lhdim Square, similar that one in Marrakech but smaller.

Ouarzazate

The Ouallywood of Morocco and Africa or the gate to the desert as its inhabitants like to call it is located between Merzouga and Marrakech. Its name is in Berber and means the Place without noise. What makes it a very important place in the Southeast is that it has an international airport and one of the biggest solar energy stations in the world.

Ouarzazate has Many Atlas studios where many directors from all over the world head to shot movies or seasons of their series. Taking the examples of the fifth season of Prison Break and parts of the third season of Game Of Thrones.

AIt Benhaddou

The fortress of Ait Benhaddou is famous worldwide for its unique clay architecture. It was built by Thami El Glaoui, one of the richest Bashas in Morocco history, also known as the Lord of the Atlas. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since the year 1987. In the past, it was used as the main stop for camel’s caravans that were heading to Tombouctou.

Nowadays, the village is not inhabited by any people. There few families that live on the other side of the bank of the river that is facing the Ksar. Moreover, in the last years, it was used only for tourists and for shooting movies and series. Here, we can mention the American British drama movie “The Gladiator”.

Merzouga, the highlight of our 6 days tour from Casablanca

The highlight of all Morocco tours without any doubt. Merzouga village is located alongside the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi in the southeast of Morocco. Concerning its name, the citizens of the area have two different stories. Firstly, some people say that the name refers to an old family called Merzoug that was living in the area. On the other hand, others say that the village in its name means the wealthy land, which in Arabic means Marzouka.

There is another unique story about how the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi came to this place. It says that, in the past, there used to be a tribe in the place of the dunes. They were living a happy life full of prosperity. One day, after digging in, they started to fight with food. As a punishment, God sent them a big storm and covered them with the sand dunes that you see today. However, this story stays a myth but some people, especially old ones, still believe it.

The village of Merzouga is the main center of the Erg Chebbi dunes. It offers some of the best activities that you can do, such as doing a discovery tour and discover its surrounding. Also, ride camels crossing the golden sand dunes and watching their colors changing. In addition, for adventure lovers, you can rent a quad or buggy and drive on the dunes.
