Often called as the mother of all Morocco tours, this Moroccan clockwise tour through the most important medinas (cities) and kasbahs (forts) is truly an exciting adventure journey you will never forget. You will visit the most important imperial capitals, the desert of Sahara and several kasbah.
It has plenty enough of everything Morocco has to offer you: from huge cities to small little villages, from luxury to nomad life, from hot sun to snowy mountains and of course, from north to the south of Morocco. You will see native handicraft, art, commerce, cultural attractions, spiritual places, traditional wearings, food and drinks…
We don’t have enough space to write down all the wonders you will get to know so we made a video-tour. Check it below:

Moroccans hospitality is well-known, specially the desert and nomad ones but also in the big cities. It’s a country where most of the natives speak several languages like french, English and Spanish.
