DAY 02: Fez guided tour:
A free day in Fez. Entering the streets of the Medina (old city) we will feel that time goes back: the trade union structure is still present at work, the narrowness of its streets does not allow another means of transportation than the donkeys and a constant tingling of people moves Through the labyrinthine alleys in the middle of which we will be surprised by neighborhoods like the Andalusian and magnificent mosques and Koranic schools. Fez has always been associated with study and religiosity, and remains the spiritual capital of Morocco. After visiting the medina, another option is to walk aimlessly through the streets of Fez-Jdid, where you will find the royal palace, the mellah (jewish) and the oldest mosque in Fez. Dinner and overnight at the hotel.

DAY 04: Merzouga – Tour of the dunes – Khamlia – Erg Chebbi – Merzouga:
This will be a stage where after breakfast, we walk one of the tracks that used in the “Rally Paris-Dakar”, visiting nomads of the desert with whom we will have tea and we will see the oasis where some films like “Sahara” were filmed, carried out By Penélope Cruz. We will visit the village of “negros”, named for the slave trade they brought from the Sudan. And after eating we will change the traction of the 4 × 4 by the one of the animal traction. The dromedaries will take us into the desert of dunes to be able to contemplate an unforgettable sunset. Tonight will be special, we will sleep in the dunes in nomadic tents (Jaimas), as do the Berbers. Here we will enjoy a Berber dinner, music and a starry sky like you have never seen.

DAY 05: Merzouga – Rissani – Tinjdad – Todra Gorges – Dades Gorges:

After breakfast we leave again in the 4 × 4 to cross the hammada (stone desert), where from time to time appear dunes and palm trees, small oases where life takes shape. In a little more than 2 hours you will reach Tinerhir, the most leafy oasis in the south, from where you can reach the Todra Gorges. Time for walks through the oasis, contemplating its crops and irrigation systems, and to travel part of the Gorges in an unequaled way. Dinner and overnight at the hotel.

We will continue along the route of the Kasbahs, being able to detour towards the interior of the Valley of the Dades; We will find some of the most beautiful kasbahs in Skoura. After leaving Ouarzazate behind, we will head for Aït Benhaddou, one of the largest kasbahs in the whole of the South, which keeps some parts well preserved thanks to the fact that it has become the stage of many films. We will sleep in a hotel in front of the Kasbah, so that we can visit it calmly and outside the hours of greater influx of visitors. Dinner and night.

DAY 07: Ouarzazate – Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou – High Atlas – Marrakech:
The journey is a succession of strengths. Today’s day is another one of them. The 200 km that separate Ouarzazate from Marrakech run through the High Atlas. The road must be traveled slowly, for its beauty and for being a mountain port that crosses the Atlas to almost 2.300m. To round off the spectacular of the day, we will follow the ancient caravan route that linked the two cities through the Ounila Valley, where there are kasbahs built in caves and which will take us to Telouet. Finally, arrival in Marrakech. Accommodation in a hotel according to selected hotel category.

The city also has a myriad of places to stroll and enjoy: the Majorelle Gardens, the Menara, the Saadian Tombs, walks in the medina or the mellah (the old Jewish quarter), the ramparts of the ramparts and the Modern city (Gueliz) with its western ways of life.
