Next you will be transferred to Marrakech, stroll hand-in-hand through the world-famous Jardin Majorelle, enjoy an unforgettable dinner overlooking Marrakech at night, or take a moonlit carriage ride around the ramparts. There will also be a chance to get active during your private trip to the High Atlas mountains.

Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Welcome to Morocco

Arrive at Marrakech airport where your driver will meet you and take you straight down to the coast.

One of the best places to stay in the whole of Morocco is La Sultana, Oualidia

Holiday activities on the beach in Essaouira

Day 2 - Relax & Surf

Protected by the lands, the lagoon of Oualidia is an ideal surfing spot allowing the ocean swell to come in through a narrow opening. At high tides, the current comes into the lagoon and breaks into one clean wave at a time. Listed in « The World’s Best Hotel for Surfing Holidays » by The Telegraph that covers renowned places as far away as Australia, La Sultana Oualidia is an exceptional place to learn the take off in safe and easy conditions, ideal for beginners

Essaouira Beach

Day 3 - Gourmet Escape in Oualidia

At the edge of a lagoon by the Atlantic Ocean, off the beaten tracks in Morocco and in a site of great ecological importance listed as “Natural Reserve”, La Sultana Oualidia attracts, captivates, energises and soothes in equal measure. As the perfect way to explore the remote lands between the lagoon and the ocean, La Sultana Oualidia offers guests an ultimate Gourmet escape combining a visit of the Oyster beds with a private lunch. A traditional fishing boat will take you to the other side of the lagoon, a short walking distance from a secluded cove on the Atlantic Ocean where a gourmet lunch will be served.
After lunch, step back on board to discover Oualidia’s oyster beds and learn about oyster farming in the lagoon, which dates from the 1950s.

Morocco riad

Day 4 - Head to Marrakech

Your driver will collect you from your riad and take you to Marrakech to arrive around lunchtime. We have a fantastic selection of riads in Marrakech. One that really stand out is Villa des Orangers. At La Villa des Orangers, you’ll sleep, dine, romance, and relax on the grounds of this former palace in the heart of Marrakech’s historic quarter.

You are ten minutes walk from the famous square – best in the evening  when you can wander among the snake charmers, storytellers and henna tattooists before sitting atop a rooftop bar with a chilled glass of wine watching the action unfold beneath you.



Spend the next 2 days enjoying everything Marrakech has to offer. Take an early morning visit to the Majorelle gardens before it gets too hot and all the busloads of tourists arrive. Spend afternoons visiting the various mosques and historical sites, not forgetting to indulge yourself with a traditional Moroccan exfoliation and massage in a local hammam.


Day 6 - Into the mountains

Today you will take a day trip into the Atlas Mountains to see another side of Moroccan life. You can explore the valleys and farms with your guide and we also include a village lunch. On the way back stop at the Richard’s Branson mountain retreat for a cup of tea.

Day 7 - Home

As you are just 15 minutes from the airport, you can relax over breakfast or do some last minute shopping before heading off for your trip home. Even if on a later flight you will be able to store your luggage to make the most of your day and a shower and freshen up can usually be arranged before you leave.

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
