"A group of 9 and they made sure each one of us had everything we needed. By the end of the trip, it’s like their family. We especially loved our guide Mustapha. He was the best ever! Our waiter Hamid was hilarious and is a smiley guy. They served the most delicious food. Honestly, the best experience ever and will most definitely come again but for a longer period of time! Love"

Morocco imperial cities and desert tour 8 days

Some places to see while doing our Morocco imperial cities and desert tour 8 days including Chefchaouen, Volubilis, Menes, Fes, Sahara desert, Todra and Dades valley, Ouarzazate and Marrakech

Chefchaouen

Chefchaouen is a Moroccan city in the northwest. It is the capital of the same-named province and is known for its blue-colored buildings. Chefchaouen is located between Tangier and Tétouan.

It was established as a military outpost shortly before the Spanish Reconquista of Granada, and its population developed rapidly as Muslim and Jewish refugees fled Spain. The economy is based on a traditional agro-pastoral system with olive and fig trees, several water mills for grinding grain and olives, a handicrafts industry centered on leather, iron, textiles, and carpentry, and summer tourism.

Volubilis

Volubilis, built on a short slope beneath the Zerhoun mountain, rises on a hill above the valley of Khoumane (Khuman), where it is joined by a little tributary stream known as the Fertassa. It looks out over a lush alluvial plain to the north of Meknes. The area around Volubilis has been occupied at least since the Late Atlantic Neolithic, approximately 5,000 years ago; archaeological investigations at the site have revealed Neolithic pottery with designs similar to those found in Iberia. The Carthaginians had a presence there by the third century BC, as proven by the remains of a shrine to the Punic god Baal and finds of pottery and stones written in the Phoenician language.
