MOROCCO DESTINATION GUIDE

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real Morocco in a way like no other. Carved out on the edge of Northern Africa, Morocco reaches from the tip of Europe to the shimmering dunes of the Sahara. It’s a country with a compelling mix of cultures, where cosmopolitan cities blend with ancient traditions. You’ll explore the centuries-old history of Casablanca, while Marrakesh, Fez and Rabat are filled with historic souks, grand palaces and enticing cuisine. Our Morocco tours take you from the symphony of bazaars with walls of rugs and spices, to the earthy tones of a traditional tannery. We’ll navigate a medieval medina in Fez, and feel the intoxicating energy of the acrobats and palm-readers in Marrakesh's Old Quarter. Learn how to blend local herbs into remedial potions, follow the route of a thousand kasbahs into the Atlas Mountains, and experience the warm hospitality of a Berber village. From the sweet breeze of the Atlantic, to the glorious desert sunsets, Morocco is magical at every turn. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
