Tour of Morocco With Your Morocco Tour


I have heard great things about Morocco and since I like to travel to different countries I decided to visit this North African country and I was not disappointed.

The country offers great natural scenery such as the Atlas Mountains, 3 days desert tour from fes to marrakech green palm oasis, high gorges, and of course the Sahara desert. The history of the cities is also incredible from the coastal town of Essaouira to the donkey alley-wide streets of Fes.

We have booked our tour with a company called Your Morocco Tour. They arranged everything for us. They picked us up at the airport in Casablanca, hl16 where we stayed our first night. Casablanca is another big city and has not much to see, except the spectacular mosque of Hassan II that is open to non-Muslims.

The next day we traveled to Rabat, the Roman ruins of Volubilis, visited Meknes, kulturarvvestfold and then ended our day in Fes.

The old medina in Fes is a place like no other. It is a very old city, where time stopped and nothing has changed since the 12th century, loekken except people now have electricity and satellite dishes. Otherwise, it looks like it did not change since centuries ago. It is a very authentic city that has many cultural, historical, and religious sights.

After Fes, we drove a long drive to Merzouga to experience the Sahara desert. I will never forget our night in the desert by Erg Chebbi. The two-hour ride on the camels was not what I expected, but we made it to our camp by the dunes of Erg Chebbi. The sky was covered by millions of stars; our local guides were playing on drums and signing their Berber music by a fire. They also show us how sand bread is made in the fire. It was an amazing night that I will never forget.

The next two days were filled up with breathtaking scenery. We visited the highest palm oasis in Morocco, the Todra Gorge. The night we spent in the Dades gorge lined by fokusmarketing steep curved road that winds around the red rock. We saw several Kasbah on the route such as the Ait Ben Haddou which was quite impressive too. We cross through the Atlas Mountains which were very high via the Tizi Tichka Pass. The views of the Berber villages were unique and surprising how people in this century still live.

Marrakech did not give an impression as being so old as Fes. We have seen many beautiful gardens and other historical sights. The Koutoubia Mosque and its minaret are known in many movies as the sight of Marrakech. I must not forget the crazy square of Djema El Fna that fills with many jugglers, medietidsskriftet belly dancers, and singers and also stalls of food. It was fun to get lost in the souks in Marrakech. It is incredible what you can buy there. The bad thing was that some of the shopkeepers were way too pushy.
