The Mountains & Imperial Cities tour starts and ends in Marrakech. It is a local culture trip that takes 10 days taking you through Fez, Ait Benhaddou, Todra Gorges and 4 other destinations in Morocco. Mountains & Imperial Cities is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation in hotels and others.

The High Atlas Mountains of central Morocco are the perfect back drop to the imperial cities of Marrakech, Fez and Meknes. This fast paced journey through Africa's northern kingdom gives us time to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the mountains, as well as allowing time to immerse ourselves in the a chaotic blend of spices, perfume and Arabic chatter of the cities.

“A busy and hugely varied week in Jordan. Every day we did something and saw something new - I loved the variety of the holiday and the different experiences you can have in such a short time in relatively small country”

“We'd never used a tour group before but decided to give it a go for this holiday as we wanted to make sure we fit plenty in. Straight away we knew that we had made a good decision. All of the hotels and Ryokans that we stayed in were excellent. We managed to go to a lot of places and learn a lot about the areas. Having all of the technical details taken care of meant that we could really enjoy our time in Japan.
There was a good mix of places to go and things to see and although there is a lot of walking the pace is quite slow so it's not to bad. The balance between group and free time is very well struck so you can definitely fit in the things that you want to do outside of the tour.”

“A memorable holiday for all the right reasons. The group was a wide age range, who all got on and supported each other. A pleasure to share a holiday with such lovely people, not forgetting Eduardo our lovely guide. The itinerary was good but quite full on, would not describe it as a leisurely holiday. Free day spent in Boneramo was a welcome relaxing break. Hotel provided great food, good service and staff where efficient. Visited many beautiful places and always made welcome. Would definitely recommend this holiday and Exodus Holidays.”
