Click for Dates and Prices Day 1 Marrakech
Marrakech is a feast for the senses. Be enticed by the alluring scents and brilliant colours of the spice markets, the sounds of the musicians and the perfume of its gardens.

Day 2 Aroumd
Perched on a rocky outcrop, the remote village of Aroumd offers stunning views across the High Atlas Mountains and a unique opportunity to experience traditional Berber culture.

Day 3 Ait Benhaddou
Sitting on a hilltop and looking unchanged since the 11th century, Ait Benhaddou is one of Morocco's most treasured, alluring and iconic sites.

Day 4 Zagora
Known as the 'doors of the desert', Zagora is a palmerie town with great pottery and ceramic workshops on the way into the desert.

Day 5 Sahara Camp
Set in a vast landscape of shifting sands and undulating shapes, the massive Erg Chigaga dunes are one of the Sahara's most iconic sights.

Day 6 Taroudannt
With an energetic, bustling city centre, Taroudannt is a great opportunity to see an untouched traditional Berber lifestyle and pick up a bargain in one of the many souqs.

Days 7 & 8 Essaouira
A seaside town with undeniable charm, Essaouira's stone ramparts play host to whitewashed houses with bright blue shutters, art galleries and a picturesque harbour.

Days 9 & 10 Marrakech
Marrakech is home to a seemingly endless mosaic of souqs. Each is devoted to a separate trade: pottery, woodwork, copper, leather, carpets and spices.

800-680-2858 800-680-2858 Notes
  • Allow EUR €250 for meals not included. 
  • The minimum age for this trip is 12 years old.
  • Group Size: Minimum 1, Maximum 12.
  • All departures in the July and August summer months have a slightly different itinerary in the Sahara. Instead of camping in the remote Erg Chigaga dunes we stay at a fixed camp in Ouled Idriss, which is a more comfortable camp and better suited to deal with the high summer temperatures. We take a 4WD safari on the morning of Day 6.
  • Expect some culture shock. You will be exposed to signs of poverty and access to services may be sporadic. The food will be quite different to home and English speakers harder to find. Respecting the local culture will make it easier to fit in and really experience the location.
  • Please ask your Vacations To Go travel counselor for more information.
