Day 4
Day tour of Fez. (B)

After breakfast, join the guide for the much anticipated full day tour of Fez! Fez is the oldest of the imperial cities, home of the oldest university in the country, and is Morocco's leading cultural and religious center. Founded in 789, Fez is one of the oldest and largest medieval cities in the world; a city that is almost unchanged through the modern ages and still most definitely alive. History has provided the city with long periods of hardship, but Fez has never died. Today it has its own culture, pride, art and even cuisine. In Fez, you will visit the narrow streets of the medieval Medina, the Medersas, the Karaouine, and the Nejjarine fountains. You will also explore the celebrated Souks where craftsmen still labor in the age old oriental tradition.

Overnight in Fez


Day 5

Overnight in Marrakech


Day 6
Day tour of Marrakech (B)

After breakfast, you'll spend the entire day with the local guide exploring the fun and vibrant city of Marrakech; also known as the second Imperial City and the Pearl of the south. Marrakech sits in a lush oasis nestled at the foot of the snowcapped Atlas Mountains. You'll visit the famous Saadien Tombs, the Dar Si Said Museum, the Koutoubia Tower and the Bahia Palace.

After lunch visit one of the Souks and the "medina" (an exciting and exotic labyrinth where small shops are lined one next to the other selling Moroccan handicrafts). Feeling as if time has stopped still, the Souks are bustling with shoppers buying their goods and the craftsmen working in the most traditional ways. You will then visit the famous Djemaa El Fna Square, a unique location filled with animated jugglers, story-tellers, snake-charmers, and many other show men who entertain the crowds. Here you'll have free time to stroll among the locals and shop in the famous market. It'll be an exciting day and certainly one of the highlights of the trip!

Overnight in Marrakech
