1
Arrive In Casablanca, Morocco
Check into your hotel. Later, meet your Tour Director and fellow travellers. (D)
2
Casablanca - Rabat - Meknes - Fez
A short ride along the coast to Rabat, once a lair of the corsairs and now the country's capital. Sightseeing includes the Royal Palace, Hassan Tower, and the Kasbah of Oudayas. You'll be reminded of the time when Morocco was the Roman province of Mauretania as you visit the fine ROMAN RELICS OF CHELLAH and its GARDENS. Continue to Meknes. During your guided tour, see its monumental gates, mosque, palace, and miles of protective walls. Visit its ROYAL STABLES, originally built to house 12,000 of the royal horses. Travel east towards Fez, Morocco's most enchanting city. (B/D)
3
Fez
At leisure in ancient Fez, which occupies a position of outstanding scenic beauty. Visit the exotic ancient Medina on the optional sightseeing tour, a maze of narrow, bustling streets and alleys that are home to colourful souks. (B)
4
Fez - Ifrane - Erfoud
Travel today into the very heart of Morocco. Stop in the quiet, French-built alpine mountain resort of Ifrane. Verdant cedar forests give way to volcanic mountains and windswept plains as you motor across the Middle Atlas range. Pass fortified mud-and-straw villages and descend into the spectacular ZIZ GORGES. The landscape becomes progressively more arid and you enter a stony desert. Approaching Erfoud, encounter an unexpected and breathtaking surprise: the peaceful oasis of the Ziz Valley. (B/D)
5
Erfoud
The best choice today is an included excursion to Rissani to see the MAUSOLEUM OF MOULAY ALI SHARIF, the first ruler of the Alaouite Dynasty. This evening, enjoy an optional excursion in the desert. (B/D)
6
Erfoud - The Road Of A Thousand Kasbahs - Ouarzazate
Enjoy the drive through the eastern slopes of the Atlas Mountains and arrive at the Tinerhir oasis with its green valley of palms and local villages. On to the impressive Todra Gorge, then along the Dades Valley. Arrive in the film capital of Morocco, Ouarzazate, where you'll visit the KASBAH DE TAOURIRT, the intricate but fascinating residence of Pasha Thami el Glaoui. (B/D)
7
Ouarzazate - Ait Benhaddou - Tizi - N - Tichka Pass - Marrakesh
Travel to AÏT BENHADDOU, a kasbah famous as a film location for Lawrence of Arabia and Gladiator. Pass through picturesque villages surrounded by craggy mountains towards 7,414-foot-high Tizi-n-Tichka Pass in the heart of the High Atlas Mountains. Each new twist in the road leads to a different, more dramatic landscape. Leaving the pass behind, see the landscape gradually change to a tapestry of red ochre. Enter the gates of the red-coloured imperial city of Marrakesh, justly reputed the most fascinating of all Moroccan cities. An optional evening excursion is a fitting way to end the day. (B)
8
Marrakesh
The included city sightseeing with a Local Guide starts with an orientation drive followed by a walk through the ancient quarters to the fascinating JEMAA-EL-FNA SQUARE and its exotic bazaar, BAHIA PALACE, and SAADIAN TOMBS. You'll feel as if you've stopped the march of time. (B/D)
9
Marrakesh - Casablanca
Leave Morocco's magical city of Marrakesh for the journey back to Casablanca. In the afternoon, see the sights in the company of a Local Guide. (B)
10
Casablanca
Your holiday ends with breakfast this morning. (B)

We really enjoyed travelling in Morocco in Jan 2019 with Cosmos Tours. This tour captures the essence and breadth of so many different places in Morocco. It is a truly exotic, colourful and welcoming country ..... don't leave it on your bucket list: visit it and you will be won over by its beauty / culture.

Our tour director, Anne and coach driver, Mohammed were excellent. They made the tour special and really worked hard to cater to everyone's requirements. We really enjoyed meeting such interesting and inspiring fellow travellers. One cannot go travelling and still come back the same person .... we would recommend this tour to you, our family and friends!

We would really like to acknowledge Madeline from Global Journeys who has been a wonderful help and very supportive in all of our travel preparations. It's a true pleasure and privilege to visit such wonderful places.

Well planned trip, great coach (and driver), tour guide was lovely and full of (nice) trivia about Morocco - great interesting source of knowledge and information. Fun bunch of people from around the world to mingle with on the bus. Including the fantastic weather in December, another enjoyable 'Cosmos' holiday - thank you Ann (tour guide).

We were certainly very lucky to have a small group. 17 travellers in all which meant plenty of room on the bus and plenty of time to get to know and meet everyone. It was a good time of the year to go especially escaping a cold European winter. The optional excursion in Fez is a highlight and probably should be included in the price. Add the cost to the original price and make it a must do excursion. The optional excursion in Erford is well worthwhile as is the camel ride in the dunes. The visit to the marble/fossil factory in Erford was not very interesting and more time could have been spent in Rissani. This was our first organised bus tour and it was wonderful.

Was an amazing experience! The icing on the cake, that made the whole tour, was our very informative, intelligent and funny tour guide, Graeme or Aziz . Without him, the tour would have been rated Good. But with him, it was excellent. Our 2 previous Cosmos tours in the USA, were quite ordinary, due to the slackness of the Tour guides. Will definitely recommend this tour!

Really excellent tour guide Graham (Aziz) who brought the whole trip together. Dealings with Global Journeys were flawless. Overall trip was excellent but accommodation varied between excellent (Marrakech) to quite ordinary Ibis). Too many & too lengthy stops through the drives. Would have been better to arrive earlier. Tipping at the level that Europeans are used to is always difficult for Australians who prefer, I think, to have the staff fairly paid up front .Also makes for a fairer comparison between tour company prices. Cosmos, please, one carpet sale pitch is enough for a trip like that. Lastly, having to have 'local' tour guides for the included tours was often disappointing & would be much better handled by the tour guide. Generally I enjoyed the trip very much.
