  • Description: This grand circle of Morocco's mountains and cities puts your senses into overdrive – embracing the buzz of mopeds, the scent of spice and the delicate tastes of roses and orange. It's Insider moments like… marvelling at endless shades of red, from terracotta to fierce magenta, created in the tannery pits in Fez. Watching the stained workers hand-dying material, you witness time-honoured methods. Stepping through the unassuming door of a riad later that day, the lavish side of Morocco reveals itself. Joining its owner, you hear his home's history, see the ornate decoration and join him to taste homemade dishes – often made with fragrant orange blossom, sweet honey and, of course, Morocco's famous piquant spices.

  • FEZ

    • + Arabian Nights Dinner And Moroccan Belly Dancing Enjoy a feast of fine food, live bands and entertainment in a spectacular Moroccan setting.

    • + Sefrou And Bhalil An opportunity to visit two unique communities. We will see the village of Bhalil, where local people still live in dwellings carved from the rock face. Warm in winter but cool in the searing summer heat, these houses are perfect adaptations to the local climate. Sefrou was once a thriving Jewish community. The synagogue remains as a small memorial, and can be visited. Also included is a visit to a traditional ceramic tile factory where you can see craftsmen at work.(N.B.:The synagogue may be closed on some occasions).
