Historical Morocco tour 9 days

Overview Historical Morocco tour 9 days

Unlike many of our other Morocco tours, our historical tour journey begins in Casablanca and ends in Marrakech, allowing us to take you through the optimal route through this beautiful country full of stories, myths and ancient wonders.

This tour also allows you take in the scale and variety of what the Moroccan landscapes have to offer, from coastal Casablanca, through valleys and gorges, across the Sahara on camel-back and up from the foothills into the mighty Atlas Mountains.

Historical Morocco tour 9 days Daily Programme
Day 1: Casablanca → Rabat

The tour begins when tour friendly driver and guide meets you at Casablanca airport in one of our luxury 4×4 vehicles, and whisks you into the heart of this beautiful city, allowing you your first glimpses of this beautiful country.

Providing it is a day when it is permissible to visit, you will can then travel to the magnificent and huge Hassan II mosque before continuing to Rabat where you can experience an evening in the heart of Medina country, sleeping in a riad in Sale (like a family run hotel) just over the river.

Day 2: Rabat → Meknes

After waking and enjoying a delicious breakfast we will travel back to Rabat where you can visit the Mausoleum of Mohammed and the Hassan Tower, the Andulusian styled Kasbah Oudaya its gardens, before saying goodbye to this stunning blue and white coastal city and travelling to Meknes.

Here you will find the Bab Mansour – the ancient doorway and easily one of the most famous features in the country. Other activities in Meknes can include a visit to the Moulay Ismail mausoleum and the granaries before retiring to your riad or hotel.

Day 3: Meknes → Volubilis → Fes

By day 3 of your tour of historical Morocco, you will be well aquainted with the country and begining to feel like it is yours to explore – you are so very welcome here.

Day 3’s itinerary sees us enjoy breakfast before leaving the hotel and travelling to the Roman ruins at Volubilis – a beautiful spot which not only displays the ancient and multi-cultural history of Morcco but also rewards visitors with stunning valley views, or travel to the holy Muslim site of Moulay Idriss.

Note: Sadly, please understand that non-Muslims are not permitted entry into the mausoleum itself. We ask that you please respect this deeply cultural and religious decision but invite you to enjoy the main square and all that it has to offer.

The final leg of day 3 takes us into the heart of the amazing city of Fes.

Day 4: Fes

After 3 days and so much to see, we feel our guests are ready to welcome a day of exploring the city of Fes rather than taking a big journey, and with so much to see and do there’s not chance for bordom.

Because Fes is one of the four “Imperial Cities”, it is rich with history. In the Old Fes section of the city you can find the Bau Inania Medersa, the Medina and the Kairaouine Mosque – all stunning examples of Moroccan historical craftsmanship. Later, we recommend a visit to the more modern side of town (Fes El Jdid) where you can find the Museum of Moroccan Arts.

Day 5: Fes → Midelt → Errachidia → Rissani

After the relatively relaxing day touring Fes it’s time to hit the road to adventure again by travelling to Midelt via Azrou.

Barbary Apes (actually monkeys) can often be seen on this route in the forests before you reach Midelt itself next to the Avachi mountain.

Day 5 features a mountainous and visually striking journey through the middle Atlas mountains through the pass of Tizi-n-Talremt and Ziz valley, giving you as our guests and amazing sense of accomplishment as you move through the variety of beautiful terrains.

Then a little fossil hunting at Errachidia and Erfoud before reaching Rassani where you will stay in a Kasbah recently constructed in the traditional style.

Day 6: Rissani → Merzouga/Erg Chebbi Dunes

Still just two-thirds into this epic tour of historical Morocco and it’s time to depart to the sands of the Sahara and the Erg Chebbi Dunes, but not before visiting the Rassani market and donkey park if you so wish.

A camel ride will take you into the dunes to watch the sunset of the Sahara before dinner and music in the nomadic tents. While we love every element of this tour, this is a night guests never forget.

Day 7: Merzouga → Tinghir/Todgha → Dades Gorges

Out of the desert before heading to Tinghir, and the Todgha and Dades gorges, providing huge contrasts in landscapes and really showing you some of the best of what Morocco has to offer before you relax in your hotel, which may seem weird after having slept in the dunes of the Sahara just 1 night before!

Day 8: Dades Gorges → Ouarzazate

Our return to a more recognizable civilization begins with the journey to Ouarzazate – the gateway to the Sahara, although we often like to keep civilization waiting with an off-road journey to visit some of the Berber villages nearby before reaching Ouarzazate via the Valley of the Roses.

Day 9: Ait Ben Haddou → Telouet → Marrakesh

Some might say we save the best til last with a visit to Ait Ben Haddou – a stunning Kasbah and one of the most famous sights in all of Morocco, accessed via the stepping stones over a river.

Finally, a trip to Telouet and a journey over the high Atlas Mountains via Tizi-n-Tichka and down into the busy heart of Marrakesh where we hope to leave you with memories that will last you a lifetime.

    Meno male che abbiamo conosciuto Yassine!! Tramite un passaparola di amici siamo arrivati a Yassine. Non avrei potuto chiedere di meglio. Una guida molto informata, parla diverse lingue e sa tanto di ogni cosa anche non inerente al Marocco. Una persona educatissima e disponibile per ogni necessità. La frase che più mi ha fatta sentire serena è stata quella che spesso ripete “take your time” ….che altro chiedere durante un viaggio dove vuoi solo rilassarti!?? Yassine è la guida che assolutamente consiglierei, avevamo una bimba di due anni e chiaramente aveva messo a disposizione seggiolini perfetti, non ci ha fatto mancare nulla e la sua cordialità rimane impressa. Abbiamo fatto una giornata nel deserto di Agafay e un giorno intero con lui alle cascate di Sti Fadma. Grazie Yassine.Gaia, Raffaele e Sveva !

    3 day tour with Yassine Yassine promised us a trip to remember, and he sure delivered. - His passion for Morocco shone through as he shared his experiences and answered all our questions in our quest to learn more about the country. - His easy going, welcoming and fun natured spirit made us feel like a part of the Moroccan family.- After my 3-day tour, he even helped coordinate any new arrangements I needed during the remainder of my stay in Morocco. - there was one hiccup I had on arrival at the airport and his team quickly resolved the matter with ease- He gave us enough space to allow us to enjoy moments on our own - He is a Safe and reliable driver and was always on time- He ensured we had everything we needed and that all our requests were met (dietary, sleeping arrangements, shopping etc) - the length of the tour was managed with sufficient time so that we were not rushed and could have stopped whenever we wanted. - Good with the camera and always ready to take great photos of us- Hotels chosen for us were very beautiful, relaxing and comfortable and seemed to be in the ideal locations- it was great to have someone else do the planning for once I definitely recommend Yassine (Morocco Sunny Days) to plan your entire trip in Morocco.

    Amazing adventures with Yassine Yassine is simply the best to go on a cross-country trip with! We enjoyed a wonderful and magical experience going to the Desert Camp in Erg Chigage with him and an even more charming trip to port town of Essaouira. He's not just an experienced driver but also a lovely, kind and funny person - it's fun to be on the road with him. We always felt secure and well looked after as Yassine is very attentive and makes every journey or trip as comfortable and interesting as possible. We've seen and learned a lot during our travels with him and also enjoyed some great conversations! Keep up the amazing work!
