What to Expect

Blue Roads Tours are conducted at a leisurely pace; we take our time and avoid rushing from place to place.  Stops are made frequently during the day to avoid extended periods of time on the coach.  On a typical day they might leave at 9am and arrive at the hotel at 5pm.  We endeavor to build rest and relaxation time into our itineraries, an most inclusions are not mandatory – so if you’d rather explore on your own, you’re welcome to meet up with the group at the designated meeting point. 

The Blue Roads Tours are designed so that there is as little time as possible on the mini-coach and plenty to see while on board.  We travel along the scenic route wherever possible, meaning you’ll see more of the countryside and local village life than on a regular tour.  Inevitable, there are days when travelling between locations may involve motorway driving and more mileage.  Generally, driving time will not last for more than three or four hours per day.

Itinerary

Day 1Casablanca

Once an old pirate lair on the Atlantic coast – the sophisticated city of Casablanca is where we’ll meet to begin our intoxicating journey through Morocco. Tonight, we’ll have the opportunity to get to know one another better over a delicious welcome meal at a local restaurant. (D)

Accommodation: Idou Anfa Hôtel (or similar)

Day 2Casablanca – Rabat – Fes

After breakfast, we’ll hit the road to our first stop: Rabat, where we’ll see the marble Mausoleum of Mohammed V and the similarly spectacular Hassan Tower on a guided walking tour. When we arrive in Fes, the evening will be ours to explore at our leisure or relax back at our accommodation. (B)

Accommodation: Riad Reda (or similar)

Day 3Fes – Moulay Idriss and Meknes – Fes

After a stop in the pretty whitewashed town of Moulay Idriss, we’ll make our way to Meknes. Enjoy a relaxed walking tour of this enchanting UNESCO World Heritage-listed city – winding up at the stunning Bab Mansour Gate. Next we’ll savour an included lunch and sample some delicious local wines, before returning to Fes for an evening spent at our leisure. (B, L)

Accommodation: Riad Reda (or similar)

Day 4Fes

First on the agenda today is a walking tour of Fes’ maze-like medina before we move on to a Moroccan must-see: a leather tannery. We will also visit a workshop that specialises in creating a range of local artisanal products, before having the afternoon free to explore Fes at our own pace. We recommend returning to the buzzing medina and exploring the many colourful storefronts and medieval streets bursting with exotic food stands. (B)

Accommodation: Riad Reda (or similar)

Day 5Fes – Midelt – Erfoud

Today our path leads us out of the city and on a voyage through the striking, jagged landscapes of the Atlas Mountains, covering some distance as we go. We’ll pay a visit to Midelt; nestled in a valley, this golden-hued town offers breathtaking vistas of the surrounding peaks. Afterwards, our scenic journey continues towards the welcoming oasis town of Erfoud, where we’ll enjoy dinner as a group at our hotel. (B, D)

Accommodation: Kasbah Hotel Chergui (or similar)

Day 6Errachidia – Rissani – Merzouga

Our first stop of the day will be Rissani, where we’ll be treated to a walking tour of this historic town, once the site of the renowned desert capital Sijilmasa. Afterwards, we’ll swap the mini-coach for four-wheel drives and venture into the spectacular Sahara Desert – where our camp just outside of Merzouga awaits. Tonight’s dinner will come in the traditional form of a Berber feast, complete with local entertainment. (B, D)

Accommodation: Golden Camp (or similar)

Day 7Merzouga – Dadès Gorge and Aït Benhaddou – Ouarzazat

Rise early this morning to catch the mesmerising sunrise over the expanse of red dunes, before we set off on a day’s travel. First we’ll make the picturesque journey to the dramatic Dadès Gorge. After taking some time to explore the gorge at our own pace, we’ll make our way to the fortified village of Aït Benhaddou: a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This cluster of earthen buildings provides a fascinating insight into southern Moroccan architecture. Afterwards we’ll rest for the evening in the nearby city of Ouarzazate. (B)

Accommodation: Kasbah La Cigogne (or similar)

Day 8Ouarzazate

We’ll begin our day uncovering the secret to cooking the perfect tagine during an included cooking class. Taking its name from the conical clay pot in which this sumptuous dish is cooked, we’ll sample our own attempts at this slow-cooked stew of meats, dried fruit and vegetables for lunch. Following this, we’ll find out more about Ouarzazate’s role on the silver screen at Atlas Film Studios, before an evening spent relaxing at our accommodation. (B, L)

Accommodation: Kasbah La Cigogne (or similar)

Day 9Ouarzazate – Aït Benhaddou – Marrakech

After stopping off at Aït Benhaddou Kasbah for a photo opportunity, we’ll move onwards to Marrakech via the awe-inspiring Tizi n’Tichka mountain pass. Tonight, we’ll come together to toast the end of our adventure with a farewell dinner. What an incredible journey we’ve had! (B, D)

Accommodation: 2Ciels Hotel (or similar)
