Morocco

Tour Itinerary

Exotic and fascinating, the Kingdom of Morocco is rich in history and culture, offering travelers intriguing historic sights, authentic cuisine, and changing scenery that is perfect for value-minded travelers wanting to explore and learn about a new destination. This Morocco-focused itinerary takes in the Imperial cities of Morocco, Fez, Marrakech, Meknes and Rabat, as well as some more inspiring cities, such as Ouazarzate, Casablanca and Erfoud. In the red city of Marrakesh, step back in time as you wander through the Jemaa-el-Fna, a square and exotic bazaar, offering some of the greatest open-air entertainment. Listen to the storytellers—an integral part of the culture—and browse for handicrafts. In Fez, take an optional tour to see the ancient medina. Founded in the 9th century, it is one of the largest medieval cities in the world and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On this comprehensive and affordable tour of Morocco, you will also be enchanted by beautiful landscapes, stunned by the beauty of the desert, and surprised by the mountain scenery of the Middle Atlas. You’ll also visit Casablanca and see its modern great Mosque and Meknes, where you'll visit the royal stables built to house 12,000 royal horses. Your tour also takes you to Ouarzazate, where you'll visit the Kasbah de Taourirt, and the amazing Ait Benhaddou, used as set to the Gladiator movie. See the mountain resort of Ifrane; Erfoud, the gateway to the Sahara desert; and Rabat, Morocco’s vibrant capital where you'll visit the relics of Chellah, a city built by the Romans in 40 AD. From the Middle Atlas mountain range and Ziz Gorges to arid desert, this budget-minded Morocco vacation will amaze you with spectacular scenery. This affordable tour of Morocco truly is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Day 1: ARRIVE IN CASABLANCA, MOROCCO.
Check into your hotel. Later, meet your Tour Director and fellow travelers.

Day 2: CASABLANCA–RABAT–MEKNES–FEZ.
A short ride along the coast to Rabat, once a lair of the corsairs and now the country’s capital. Sightseeing includes the Royal Palace, Hassan Tower, and the Kasbah of Oudayas. You’ll be reminded of the time when Morocco was the Roman province of Mauretania as you visit the fine ROMAN RELICS OF CHELLAH and its GARDENS. Continue to Meknes. During your guided tour, see its monumental gates, mosque, palace, and miles of protective walls. Visit its ROYAL STABLES, originally built to house 12,000 of the royal horses. Travel east towards Fez, Morocco’s most enchanting city.
Today’s Distance: 211 mi/ 340 km (B,D)

Day 3: FEZ.
At leisure in ancient Fez, which occupies a position of outstanding scenic beauty. Visit the exotic ancient Medina on the optional sightseeing tour, a maze of narrow, bustling streets and alleys that are home to colorful souks. (B)

Day 4: FEZ–IFRANE–ERFOUD.
Travel today into the very heart of Morocco. Stop in the quiet, French-built alpine mountain resort of Ifrane. Verdant cedar forests give way to volcanic mountains and windswept plains as you travel across the Middle Atlas range. Pass fortified mud-and-straw villages and descend into the spectacular ZIZ GORGES. The landscape becomes progressively more arid and you enter a stony desert. Approaching Erfoud, encounter an unexpected and breathtaking surprise: the peaceful oasis of the Ziz Valley.
Today’s Distance: 267 mi/ 430 km (B,D)

Day 5: ERFOUD.
The best choice today is an included excursion to Rissani to see the MAUSOLEUM OF MOULAY ALI SHARIF, the first ruler of the Alaouite Dynasty. This evening, enjoy an optional excursion in the desert. (B,D)

Day 6: ERFOUD–THE ROAD OF A THOUSAND KASBAHS–OUARZAZATE.
Enjoy the drive through the eastern slopes of the Atlas Mountains and arrive at the Tinerhir oasis with its green valley of palms and local villages. On to the impressive Todra Gorge, then along the Dades Valley. Arrive in the film capital of Morocco, Ouarzazate, where you’ll visit the KASBAH DE TAOURIRT, the intricate and fascinating residence of Pasha Thami el Glaoui.
Today’s Distance: 217 mi/ 350 km (B,D)

Day 7: OUARZAZATE–AÏT BENHADDOU–TIZI–N–TICHKA PASS–MARRAKESH.
Travel to AÏT BENHADDOU, a kasbah famous as a film location for Lawrence of Arabia and Gladiator. Pass through picturesque villages surrounded by craggy mountains towards 7,414-foot-high Tizi-n-Tichka Pass in the heart of the High Atlas Mountains. Each new twist in the road leads to a different, more dramatic landscape. Leaving the pass behind, see the landscape gradually change to a tapestry of red ochre. Enter the gates of the red-colored imperial city of Marrakesh, justly considered the most fascinating of all Moroccan cities. An optional evening excursion is a fitting way to end the day.
Today’s Distance: 143 mi/ 230 km (B)

Day 8: MARRAKESH.
The included city sightseeing with a Local Guide starts with an orientation drive followed by a walk through the ancient quarters to the fascinating JEMAA-EL-FNA SQUARE and its exotic bazaar, BAHIA PALACE, and MAJORELLE GARDENS. You’ll feel as if you’ve stopped the march of time. (B,D)

Day 9: MARRAKESH–CASABLANCA.
Leave Morocco’s magical city of Marrakesh for the journey back to Casablanca. On arrival, see the main sights in the company of a Local Guide.

This specific trip to Morocco with Cosmos was a spectacular and memorable experience. I absolutely loved it and recommend anyone interested in visiting Morocco to choose this one. Our tour guide Graham is extremely knowledgeable on the history and all the monuments in all cities visited. He also encouraged the group to be social and learn some of the local languages. Much detail was provided from his years of living in the country which made the trip run more smooth and inevitably so much more enjoyable. Thank you Graham, Abdulla and Hassan. Thank you most of all Cosmos!!! Sasha 

By Surendra D on May 16, 2019

Guide is not prepared, day to events are not communicated, days foodwason our own he stated it is by cosmos. Very few cultural details shared by our guide., the hotels need improvement. There was a flying cockroach in room, food inadequate. Have to fight with staff to get food. Poor experience.

By Nora L on May 03, 2019

The trip was enjoyable and met my expectation. There were several repeat-customers among our small group of 17 people, which is a testament to Cosmos' reputable and professional services. The tour director, Anne along with the driver and his assistant made a very strong team. All of them were extremely courteous and professional, which contributed to the enjoyment of the tour. I would highly recommend Cosmos (Globus Group) to anyone. I will also tell my friends about my positive experience with Cosmos. Thank you!

By Genevieve D on Apr 19, 2019

I think I have traveled about 12-15 times with Cosmos and only one time was I disappointed. This Morocco trip ranks up there in the top 3 trips I have ever taken.

By Victoria I on Jan 02, 2019

everything ran perfect. the driver was at the airport to take me to my hotel. hotels were wonderful except for one. the tour guide Ann was wonderful and tours were great. I could not have asked for more.

By Kathleen Y on Nov 16, 2018

This was my first group travel experience and without a doubt I will do it again.

By Yves B on Mar 23, 2018

Morocco is a truly exceptional country to visit. Our tour guide Mr. Aziz was the best, excellent, professional, communicative, responsive, funny (making us laugh every day). He made the Morocco trip an absolutely incredible experience! The itinerary was phenomenal, and carefully planned out that we were able to see so much. Aziz was great at telling us the Moroccan history. The trip was amazing!!!!! What a wonderful experience, beautiful country with a very rich history and culture! Every day was a complete surprise. The sights in Morocco were spectacular, the country diverse from the goats, sheep, the Argan trees, the Medinas, the Kasbah, the Jilbabs were extraordinary. We cannot forget to mention our very skilled driver; his helper. All in all, the entire whole trip was amazing! The memories we carry from this trip is an experience which we will always treasure.

By Angela D on Mar 09, 2018

Morocco exceeded expectations on so many levels. The Moroccan people, their food, and the country itself, were all just wonderful. The Cosmos tour gave a wonderful overview and certainly returned value for the cost. I would recommend this tour to anyone without reservations.

By Soo Ken O on Jan 12, 2018

Tour Director was very professional and diligent. Well done.

By Masoumeh R on Jan 12, 2018

I loved the tour I booked to Morocco with Cosmos and I am coming back for other tours.

By Georgia D on Dec 21, 2017

Had a very interesting and wonderful experience with this tour, the price is just right, the accommodations was great except for one hotel and what makes our tour so special was our tour director, he was the best. I will highly recommend this tour to my friends.

By Robert E on Aug 11, 2017

This is my third trip with Cosmos. Compared to the other two trips (Scandinavia & The Balkans) the accommodations in Morocco were of lesser quality and the breakfast buffet was consistently and definitely inferior.

By Mareva M on Aug 12, 2016

One of the best trips I've ever had. Definitely worth it, and I would have paid much more for the experience.

By Maria Rosezoil R on Jul 01, 2016

The Morocco tour was amazing! Truly a great experience! I recommend the sahara desert and sunset excursion! The Tour Director was so nice, attentive and very patience considering the different nationalities she needed to deal with.

By Ivanka S on Aug 28, 2015

Thank you very much, it has been great experience!

By Jimmie H on Apr 24, 2015

Tour operator ( Cosmos ) SHOULD PROVIDE NAME TAGS ( even if only clothing stick-on ) !! ( This is the first tour we have ever taken that did not provide. ) Tour guide should alert persons who have physical handicaps regarding specific physically "difficult" areas. A couple of members experienced difficulties and one mentioned (to us) he would not have taken a specific walk had he known.

By Gloria D on Mar 06, 2015

Everything about this trip exceeded my expectations. It was unimaginable. I highly recommend Cosmo for everyone who wants to experience a real vacation of a lifetime . This entire trip from beginning to end was interesting, exciting, enchanting, and educational. The main tour guide was perfect for her job. Every activity was well organized and on point. My group of 27 was very well behaved and accommodating. I am looking forward another similar to this in a years time.

By Philip F on Dec 21, 2013

The Tour Director was superb!

By Elaine L on Feb 10, 2012

The Cosmos tour leader was amazing both in her knowledge of & love of morocco; we had never booked with Cosmos before and they certainly proved to have a quality product; the fact that we could receive a discount so easily from affordable tours made it all the better.

By Wayne S on Nov 11, 2011

The operator's Tour Director, also, was highly appropriate for our purposes. All in all, it was a wonderful experience from first contact to return home. Yes, we'd do it again a thousand times!

By Floyd L on Jan 28, 2011

This was my second trip to Morocco and I would highly recommend it to all. The square in Marrakesh was very exotic, it was a wonderful experience to walk down the souks and see all the spices etc (and make way for the donkeys laden with goods when someone called out 'Balak'. The countryside, the oasis, the Medinas and Kasbahs were great and the climb up the sand dunes to watch the sun set was great. (I may go again).

By Gene B on Nov 26, 2010

We greatly enjoyed our trip to Morocco with Cosmos.
