Tauk Tours - The Magic of Morocco

Tauk Tours - The Magic of Morocco

Experience the Heart of Morocco, Africa at Europe’s Doorstep
Ancient cities, medinas, kasbahs, and souks… windswept coastline and desert treasures… on a 10-day journey that includes premier hotel stays – four nights in the melting pot of Marrakech, three nights in spiritual Fes, and one night in both Imperial Rabat and fashionable Casablanca, where ghosts of Bogie and Bergman still linger. Magic of Morocco starts in Imperial Rabat with royal sightseeing at the palace and the mausoleum of Mohammed V. Continue to Fes, where you’ll take your choice of walking tours – a culinary tour for sampling traditional elements of Moroccan cuisine… a walk in the medina for an insider’s look at artisan wares from rugs to metalwork… or a stroll in the Jewish quarter. Visit the Roman ruins of Volubilis, and have lunch in a private home in Moulay Idriss with a professor who shares thoughts on the life of women in Morocco. Head for Meknes, renowned for olives, wine and mint tea, where you’ll visit a madrasa and Sultan Moulay Ismail's stables that once housed 12,000 horses. En route to Casablanca, see the movie to get in the mood for what comes next! Visit Casablanca’s Hassan II Mosque, the world’s third largest, and see the city’s famed watermen decked out in red, before lunch at Rick’s Café. In walled Marrakech, explore Jemaa el-Fna Square in Old Town, the Gardens Majorelle (once owned by Yves Saint-Laurent), the new Musée Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech, and the Saadian Tombs. Venture into the desert via 4x4 for camel riding, a tea ceremony, a taste of Berber culture, and traditional music and entertainment in a tent. On your last full day, take your choice: a cooking school experience… an excursion to the seaside town of Essaouira with a photographer as a guide… or pampering at a hammam.
