Morocco Experiences

  • Morocco’s history dates back more than 12 centuries, and its strong culture has been influenced by Europeans, Berbers, and Arabians, who have each played their part in the country’s heritage.
  • The capital Marrakech is bustling and multi-cultural with traditional souqs and a maze of alleyways. Visit the Medina and get lost down winding alleys that lead to gardens and the open-air theatre, or watch musicians and entertainers perform in Djemaa el-Fna. Learn about Morocco’s art and history at the Marrakech Museum, or escape the busy streets in the huge Agdal Gardens.
  • The port city of Tangier is the gateway to the Mediterranean and home to beautiful uncrowded golden beaches. You can visit the nearby ancient Hercules Cave, or take a boat trip from the harbour and go fishing in the cobalt sea.
  • Casablanca is one of the more modern cities in Morocco, and it’s been the setting of many famous films over the decades. To the north of the port city is the Old Medina, while Quartier Habous, known as the nouvelle Medina, blends French and Moroccan culture and has an array of cafés, shops and markets. Climb the stairs of the Phare d'el Hank lighthouse and marvel at the stunning views, or stand outside the huge Hassan II Mosque that stretches over the water.
  • A trip to Fez will transport you to the old world due to its preserved medieval architecture and walled Medina that boasts a labyrinth of narrow paths leading to busy markets full of spices, ceramics, leather and food stalls.
