Fes (or Fez), after Casablanca and Rabat, is the third largest city in Morocco. In the course of the last 500 years it has taken on the role of a leading cultural and intellectual centre. It remains a unique place in the whole of the Arab world, boasting more sites and historical attractions than all the other cities of Morocco put together.

Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrive in Fez

Our driver will meet you and take you straight to your riad. After checking in and enjoying a mint tea, take a horse and carriage trip around the city as a fun way to help you get your bearings. We recommend Riad Mabrouka located in the heart of the ancient Medina in Fez, one of the most fascinating medieval walled cities in the Arab world.

Day 2 -

We will take you for a half-day guided tour of the Medina. This is an essential part of your visit to this magnificent city.

Day 3 - Day out

Visit Voubilis & Meknes with your personal driver.  Meknes used to be the capital of Morocco before the title was awarded to Rabat in 1727.  Volubilis is even older; the most western Roman settlement and a UNESCO World Heritage Site dating from the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD. 


Day 4 - Shopping time

Today you can explore the Medina on your own, visit the Souks or maybe indulge yourself with a traditional Moroccan exfoliation and massage in a local hammam.

Day 5 - Head for home

Your driver will collect you at your riad for the short trip back to the airport and your flight home, assuming you manage to get all your souvenirs and memories within your baggage allowance!

The start and finish for most Morocco Holidays. Highlights are the souks in the old Medina, the main square in the evening, the Majorelle gardens and the historical sites. You should definitely stay in a Marrakech Riad for at least a few nights but also some beautiful villas and hotels on the edge of town in rural Marrakech. Click for suggested riads More
Essaouira is our favourite at all times of year. Probably the prettiest coastal town in Morocco and loads to see and do. Great camel trekking, horse-riding, surfing kite/windsurfing, cooking lessons, lovely medina (more relaxing shopping than Marrakech). Also great places to stay in town and in the village click below for suggestions More
High Atlas Mountains
Incredibly close to Marrakech but a world apart, the Atlas mountains are an essential visit. Go for a day trip (trekking or driving tour), or stay in one of the beautiful kasbahs perched on a hilltop to relax and soak up the views More
Sahara Desert
The massive dunes of the Sahara should be on anyone's "bucket list" and it is easy to do a trip into the desert from Marrakech, Fes or the coast with a bit of planning More
Ait Ben Haddou
One of the most famous sights in Morocco, Ait Ben Haddou is a rock fortress on the south side of the Atlas. Always a good stopping point on our desert tours and a must for the photo album More
The Gorges
The Todra and Dades Gorges maybe a little over-hyped but certainly worth a stop on the way to Mezourga - part of our Desert & Gorges Tour More
A pretty walled town within easy reach of Agadir (so a lot of day trippers from the package hotels) but also a great place for a night's stop between the desert and the coast More
Having been re-built after and earthquake 50 years ago it doesn't have as much charm as other Moroccan cities but the beach and climate are lovely More
Oualidia Lagoon
A small seaside town built up around a pretty estuary and lagoon. Home to La Sultana, the best coastal hotel in Morocco and can easily be combined with a visit to Marrakech and Essaouira More
Less well known as a tourist destination but with recently introduced direct flights from the UK it is an interesting city where you can see the modern Morocco alongside the rivermouth Kasbah and the medina More
The biggest city in Morocco and an industrial sprawl. We generally advise not stopping there and even if flying to Casablanca head North to Fes/Rabat or south to Marrakech/Essaouira. If you are passing through it is worth visiting the spectacular seafront mosque.
Fes makes for a fabulous long weekend or as part of our "Grand Tour". The highlight is the medina which most people prefer to Marrakech, partly as it is on a hill you are much more aware of the geography. Also, do a day trip to the Roman ruins at Volubilis and ask about a night or two in the village of Bhalil More
The second good dune area of Morocco is Erg Chebbi by Merzouga - easier to get to (no 4x4 needed) and whilst the dunes are stunning we prefer Erg Cheggaga for a proper desert experience. More
