Trip Highlights

•   Discover the wide world of bread, from Khobz to msmen and tafournout to simit, that forms an essential part of every Moroccan meal. Hollowed out khobz filled with boiled eggs, salt and a good dose of ras el hanout will be your new favourite breakfast

•   Enjoy home-cooked dinner of Chefchaouen flavours with a family in the Blue City

•   Enjoy traditional Berber food and hospitality with a local family up in the High Atlas Mountains, overlooking the crowning peaks in the distance

•   Soak up what could be the quintessential smell of Morocco as you watch ras el hanout being freshly ground in a Marrakech spice souk

•   Eat mechoui (slow roasted lamb), that’s deliciously falling-apart after being cooked in a pit beneath the floor, while looking over market stalls in the incredible Djemma el Fna

Itinerary & Notes
Salaam Aleikum! Welcome to Morocco. Your adventure begins today with a welcome meeting at 6 pm where you'll meet your tour leader and fellow travellers. As there's little free time included in Casablanca on this trip, consider coming a day early to fully explore the city. Modelled after Marseille in France, the city is famous for its art deco buildings. A pleasant way to spend a day exploring Casablanca is to wander the old medina and the city walls, then jump in a taxi to visit the Quartiers des Habous, the new medina. Then perhaps take a walk along the Corniche, watching the locals play football on the beach, or take it easy with a glass of sweet mint tea in one of the many great cafes. This evening, join your group for a welcome dinner of delicious traditional specialties.
