You can also go monkey-spotting in the Cedar Forest and Ifrane, this land’s Switzerland, drink tea, go camel trekking, and spend the night in a desert camp under the stars.
During your travels, you will spend a few days in the fabled and mystic medina of Marrakech, where snake charmers and fate tellers will lure you and try to convince you to put off (for the time being) your gift-buying in the souks.
You won’t experience even the slightest bit of boredom. The surroundings drastically alter. Just be sure to bring your camera because you’ll see sights that you’ve never seen before. Scenes that are simply beyond anything your wildest dreams could conjure up!

A team member will meet you at the Mohammed V airport in this city to start your 8 days tour from Casablanca across the country's business capital. Before starting the tour, we may drive you to your hotel depending on your arrival time. On this city trip, you'll visit the bustling city center with its distinctive architectural style and the chic beach resort of Corniche d'Ain Diab. The magnificent Hassan II mosque, the second-largest religious building in the world, is open to visitors who are not Muslims.

When the mosque is crowded, the roof opens to let fresh air enter. When it's cold outside, believers can kneel in prayer with the help of underfloor heating. The mosque is 200 meters long, 100 meters broad, and 65 meters tall, which sums up to 365, the number of days in a year. The Quartier Habous is Casablanca's most picturesque neighborhood. The New Medina is another name for this neighborhood, which was established in the 1920s when France was still a colony. The Quartier Habous has a quaint market-like feel that is reminiscent of a souk. There are numerous shops where you may buy spices, trinkets, and handmade goods.
