The "Morocco: Sahara & Beyond" tour starts in Casablanca and ends in Marrakech. The "Morocco: Sahara & Beyond" tour is a cultural, religious and historic sites trip that takes 15 days taking you through Casablanca, Erg Chigaga, Ait Benhaddou, Casablanca and 6 other destinations in Morocco and Portugal. This is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Discover the rich cultural heritage of Morocco, where many distinct peoples have left their indelible mark—from ancient Romans to the Arabs to the French–and encounter the living legacy of North Africa’s indigenous Amazigh, or Berbers. Explore the atmospheric souks of Marrakech and Fez, witnessing age-old crafts like damascening and hand-painted ceramics; venture to the ancient adobe village of Aït Ben Haddou, used as a filming location for many Hollywood productions; and enjoy lunch with an Amazigh family in a small oasis village. Then head to Essaouria, the windy Atlantic city that was a onetime haven for pirates—and now musicians.
