Day 1: Fes – Meknes – Rabat
Welcome to Morocco!
For the first day of this 4-day Fes Imperial City Tour, we will start by picking you up from Fes, either from the airport or whatever location you prefer.
Our journey today will take us from Fes to Meknes city, previously nicknamed “Le Petit Paris” during French colonization. Meknes also used to be the Kingdom’s capital in the 17th and 18th century under the rule of the Ismaili Dynasty. This time period left behind some valuable monuments in the city, which you will get to explore today.
Following this, we will move on to the next imperial city on our agenda today: Rabat. Rabat city is the current administrative capital of the Moroccan Kingdom (ever since 1912). Our tour here will include many interesting stops such as the Kasbah of Oudaya, the Royal Palace gates, and the Mausoleum of Mohammed V.
Finally, after a long day of touring and exploring, we will check in to a local Riad hotel to spend the first night of this Fes imperial city tours.
Day 2: Rabat – Casablanca – Marrakech
This next day of 4-day Fes Imperial City Tour, you will have breakfast at the hotel, before we take on the Atlantic coast road in order to get to the famous city of Casablanca. Casablanca is known for many things, including the iconic 1942 movie, and the world renowned Hassan II mosque. We will pay a visit to this architectural gem before continuing out journey to Marrakech, the red city. This is where we will spend the 2nd night of this Fes imperial city tours.
Day 3: Marrakech – Ourika Valley
For the third day of this 4-day Fes Imperial City Tour, we will be taking an excursion out into the Atlas Mountains surrounding Marrakech, specifically the Ourika valley. This will be a great way to cool off from the summer heat, while escaping the busy tourist crowds of Marrakech. When we get there, you can enjoy the cool water from the running river, have a picnic, or hike up to discover even more hidden gems in the area (spoiler: there’s waterfalls).
We will return to Marrakech in the evening after a refreshing day of exploration at the Ourika Valley.
Day 4: Marrakech guided tours ( Last day of Fes imperial city tours)
For the last day of this 4-day Fes Imperial City Tour, we will be dedicated to exploring the red city Marrakech and uncover all of its hidden secrets. We will begin our tour at the old medina with its never ending streets, full of life, colors, and culture. Following this, we will pay a visit to the iconic Koutoubia mosque, the Saadian tombs, the Bahia palace, and the Majorelle garden (this list can be modified according to your liking).
In the evening, we will head to the lively Jamaa El Fna square, where you’ll get to see the true vibrant lifestyle of Marrakech city. This is where our 4-day Fes Imperial City Tour ends.
