“Very intensive and interesting tour omg what an experience even though ha long had a typhoon. Halong bay was my prerogative to go to Vietnam but it did not ruin my tour at all. I will go there another time a blast to be there even though I just thought I prefer South America no not any more.”

“Balkans Encompassed provided a range of interesting insights into a fascinating part of Europe.”
Marrakech, one of Morocco's favourite cities, is known as the country's ‘pearl of the south' and is surrounded by the spectacular peaks of the Atlas Mountains. Take a step back in time and lose yourself in the maze of souks and spice markets in the ancient medina. Wander the labyrinthine of stalls with colourful skeins of wool drying above your head against bright blue skies. Pick your way through alleys lined with elaborately decorated brass lamps while dodging donkeys as well as locals on scooters as you go. Watch artisans making their wares right where they sell them. Enjoy some banter and barter with a friendly seller, then indulge in a traditional mint tea or thick Moroccan coffee to recover.

There is non-stop action at the Djemaa el-Fna, the huge, open UNESCO-listed public square in the medina. See jugglers, henna tattoo-artists, potion-sellers, musicians, snake-charmers and acrobats by day and buy a freshly-squeezed orange juice from any one of a myriad of vendors. At night, witness musicians, Gnaoua musicians, storytellers, belly dancers and a massive alfresco restaurant complete with friendly maitre d’s calling for your custom in five different languages. The call to prayer from the iconic Koutoubia Minaret adds to the exotic atmosphere.

Today we can enjoy a scenic drive heading towards the great Sahara Desert. We stop for a delicious Moroccan lunch (optional) before continuing to the desert. During the summer months we may also have time for a relaxing swim.

Once we are fully refreshed we travel to Merzouga, where we board our desert transport- camels! Ride through the sand, reaching the Berber Camp where we will stay the night.

Enjoy local food, music and an incredible night star-gazing under the desert sky.

After a delicious breakfast in the desert, we visit an ancient irrigation well where you can learn about the ancient systems used to create this amazing network of underground canals. Dating back to the 14th century, they reach around an impressive 300km in length.

We then travel towards Todra Gorge - Morocco’s answer to the Grand Canyon. A spectacular series of limestone river canyons, the rugged landscape gives a contrasting image to the colour and lanterns that you find in the cities. With lush greenery in the surroundings, the area is tranquil and less touristy than many places in the country.

After enjoying a local lunch in our hotel, there is time to explore the gorge and even go for some optional rock climbing. We will also visit the quaint local town of Tizgui, one of the oldest villages in Todra and where we will learn how to make traditional Moroccan tea and berber rugs.

This now living museum displays what traditional kasbah life was like over the centuries and gives great insight into the history of Morocco.

We then continue onto the beautiful pre-Saharan habitat of Ait Benhaddou. These dusty earthen buildings are surrounded by high walls and four corner towers, making it a striking example of Southern Moroccan architecture. Once settled in we enjoy a guided tour of this UNESCO World Heritage Site with free time to further discover the charming streets.
