9 days from £1935pp plus international flights.
This holiday takes you through the diverse landscapes and sights that Morocco has to offer, from the lively souks of Marrakech through dramatic gorges and barren valleys to the sweeping desert dunes of the Sahara.
Explore the historic sites and souks of Marrakech, enjoy the silence of the Sahara desert with a night in a Bedouin-style tented camp, explore or hike in the beautiful Dades Gorge, have a picnic at a desert oasis, try tasty tagines and delicious couscous, and find out just what a kasbah is.
This is a private trip, and once you leave Marrakech you have the freedom of your own private car and driver to take you around. Local guides will take you around the key sites, whether it's a walking tour of Marakech or some gentle trekking in the Dades Valley. We've also included a came ride out in the sand dunes to make this desert adventure even more memorable. There's no need to rough it as you'll be staying in some lovely hotels, full of character, and with modern facilities providing every comfort.
This popular 9 day trip is an ideal break from life's normal routines and you will return with an appreciation of life in southern Morocco and some treasured memories.
After a breakfast you'll set off for Marrakech. On the way you can stop at Ait Benhaddou, a collection of kasbahs making up a small village where a guide will show you around.
On arrival in Marrakech, you return to the lovely Villa des Orangers.
