    Itinerary

    Day 1

    WELCOME TO MOROCCO!

    Welcome to Morocco, the land of vibrant souks and bustling medinas, where the intoxicating scents of exotic spices and sizzling street food fill the air! We’ll kick things off in the port city of Casablanca, where you’ll find awesome Arabic architecture around every corner. Forget about any arrival stress, because we’ll pick you up from the airport and take you back to our centrally located hotel! You’ll have time to freshen up after the flight, and maybe even take a wander along the city’s waterfront, before meeting the group tonight for a fun-filled welcome dinner.

    Day 2

    CASABLANCA + RABAT + VOLUBILIS

    Get ready to hit the streets of Casablanca this morning and embark on a tour of the city’s most sensational sights (including the Hassan II Mosque, of course!). Then, we’ll hop aboard our air-conditioned minivan and make our way to Rabat, the capital of Morocco. The best part? The historical centre of Rabat is compact, so it’s easy for us to see its amazing highlights. This afternoon, we have one more surprise up our sleeves – Volubilis, a jaw-dropping UNESCO-listed Roman settlement. After a long day, we’ll arrive in the mesmerising city of Fes, marking the grand finale of our epic road trip!

    Day 3

    FES MEDINA

    Today is all about Fes, the oldest and largest medieval city in the world! Our focus will be the Fes medina, a car-free zone where residents rely on donkeys and bikes. We hope you’ve packed your sense of adventure because we have plenty of palaces and mosques to explore today! (Non-Muslims aren’t allowed to enter the mosques in Morocco, but fear not – they look just as awesome from the outside). Plus, there’s still plenty of excitement to be had exploring the dye pits, tanneries, pharmacy, and pottery shops, not to mention the delicious Moroccan dishes we’ll discover along the way.

    Day 4

    SAHARA + CAMEL RIDE

    Buckle up, because today we’re making the exhilarating journey to the mighty Sahara! We’ll break up the drive with an optional lunch stop, and if the weather’s sizzling, you can cool off with a relaxing swim. Then, it’s time to head to the great Erg Chebbi dunes in Merzouga, where we’ll hop on some camels and trek into the vast Sahara Desert – we bet you’ve never seen the sunset from the back of a camel before! Tonight, we’ll stay at an authentic Berber Camp on the desert’s edge, savouring delicious local food and grooving to traditional music under the stars. It doesn’t get better than this!

    Day 5

    TODRA GORGE

    Join us for a special morning as we visit a local Berber family, known for their legendary hospitality. If you think you’ve tasted tea before, wait till you sip on some authentic Moroccan tea made by this family (it’s out of this world)! Afterwards, we’ll head to the Todra Gorge – Morocco’s answer to the Grand Canyon. Standing at a breathtaking 1000ft, this magnificent gorge is surrounded by towering limestone cliffs that’ll make you feel like you’re in a dream. We’ll then continue to Skoura for a well-earned rest at our boutique hotel.

    Day 6

    AIT BENHADDOU + OUARZAZATE

    This morning we’ll head to an incredible women’s cooperative on the edge of the Dadès Valley. This 40-strong team of hardworking women, most of whom are widows, grow their own crops and transform them into baked goods that will make your tastebuds dance. As we journey to Ait Benhaddou, we’ll stop for lunch in Ouarzazate. Feeling daring? There’s the option to try quad biking! When arriving at Ait Benhaddou, a local guide will meet us to show off the best bits of this UNESCO World Heritage site full of Kasbahs. After a jam-packed day, we’ll move on to Marrakech.

    Day 7

    STREET FOOD OF MARRAKECH

    It’s time to explore the magical city of Marrakech! We’ll get to know the city with a thrilling city tour including the Koutoubia Tower, the jewel of Marrakech, and some of the best viewpoints, where you’ll see the Atlas Mountains! No trip to this incredible city would be complete without a visit to the UNESCO-listed medina & Djemâa-el-Fna – a bustling marketplace like no other. As the afternoon rolls around, you’ll have some free time to relax poolside or snap up a few souvenirs before we dive mouth-first into Marrakech’s thriving street food scene on the ultimate food tour!

    Day 8

    FREE DAY!

    Today is totally free for you to spend however you’d like! If you want to get away from the craziness of Marrakech without leaving the city, the Majorelle botanical garden is a lush oasis. Or, if you really feel like kicking back, why not visit a hammam before spending the afternoon poolside, with a drink in hand? (it’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it)! If you’re eager to get out and about, we can arrange for you to hire a bike to explore the city in style! Tonight’s our farewell dinner, so let’s devour some of the best food in Marrakech together to round off our incredible adventure!

    UNTIL NEXT TIME

It’s time to say goodbye, for now, to your new group of friends as you reminisce about riding camels through the desert, camping under the stars, and drinking far too much mint tea! One thing is certain – you’ll leave with memories that will last a lifetime. See you next time!

    “Felt Safe as Solo Female Traveller”

    Morocco way outdone my expectations and it was incredibly diverse. I felt really safe throughout the trip as a solo female traveller and I made good friend’s and enjoyed every moment.

    “Extraordinary!”

    This was my 3rd trip with OWR, and I must say, the experience was nothing short of extraordinary. If you’re looking for a travel company that goes above and beyond, OWR is the way to go.

    “Complete Sociable and Cultural Experience”

    Morocco was such a brilliant experience and very different from other countries I’d been too. I would highly recommend OWR for a complete sociable and cultural experience. I’ll be using them again.

    “Trip of a Lifetime”

    My trip to Morocco recently with OWR Travel was the experience of a lifetime! From pick up, to the hotel/ Riad, to food recommendations, and to activities, every part of the trip was thoughtful and nothing but amazing.

    Important Notes

    Am I a good fit for an OWR trip?

    We know it’s important to you to choose the right tour company for you.

    And equally, for us, it’s super important that we get the right people joining our trips (people who are likely to get the most out of it).

    We’d therefore appreciate if you could please read the following page carefully before signing up: OWR Trip Style

    Are international flights included?

    No.

    International flights are not included in the price of our tours. This is something you would book yourself seperately.

    Which airports should I fly into?

    Our trip starts in Casablanca (CMN) and ends in Marrakech (RAK). You should organise your flights accordingly.

    Ideally you should arrive at the hotel by 6pm on the first day. This is when we have our welcome meeting and afterwards go for dinner (although if you arrive later it’s fine to catch up).

    You can leave at any time on the last day. There are no activities scheduled for that day.

    If you need help researching flights, contact us at [email protected] or fill out the contact form on this page.

    Are airport transfers included?

    Yes, they are included at both the start and end of every trip.

    Notes

    • We only do transfers between airports and our selected hotels. No other locations.
    • For those tagging on extra days, we will endeavour to include transfers up to 2 days outside of official tour dates.

    Can I book a private room?

    Yes.

    Our standard prices are based on sharing a twin hotel room with one other person of the same gender.

    However, if you prefer a private then you can select this option for £450 / $560 extra.

    Just let us know at the time of booking.

    (Note – we have limited availability of private rooms, these will be allocated on a first come, first served basis).

    Can I book pre and/or post accommodation?

    Yes, we can book you in for extra days at either our arrival hotel or departure hotel.

    This is up to a maximum of 2 days on either side. If for longer, we suggest you book directly with the hotel.

    Contact us at [email protected] for rates.

    I’m traveling solo, will I be the only one?

    No.

    Our trips are specifically designed for solo travelers so you will fit in perfectly.

    Some people may bring a friend but the majority will always be traveling solo.

    How do I book?

    You contact us either via the contact form on this site or by emailing us at [email protected].

    You confirm your name, your age, which country you are based in and you tell us the destination and dates you would like to join.

    We then send you an electronic invoice to collect your deposit payment.

    To reserve a spot you pay a £200 / $250 deposit and then the remaining balance must be paid by 70 days before the trip.

    If your booking is within 70 days, then you must pay the full balance at that point.

    Is the deposit refundable?

    No, the deposit is non-refundable.

    However, if you can no longer make the trip you can transfer that deposit onto any other future trip.

    Do you have payment plans?

    Yes.

    We can either split your balance into even monthly payments, or we can set it up so you can pay any smaller amounts as and when you like.

    Just let us know at the time of booking.

    Visas, vaccinations & packing lists?

    Two months before your trip you will receive a comprehensive pre-trip pack which tells you everything you need to get prepared for the trip (including info on visas, vaccinations & packing lists).

    In general, most of our guests don’t need visas to come to Morocco.

    Do you cater for special dietary requirements?

    Yes.

    We cater for vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and other dietary requirements. We will always make sure there are options available to you in the restaurants we visit.

    Please be aware though that there will not likely be the same range of options as you have available in your home country.

    Will I get to meet other members of the group before the trip?

    Yes.

    In the week before the trip we will create a WhatsApp group with all the people joining the trip. This is a great opportunity to connect ahead of the trip.

    Are the hotels listed on the website the actual hotels you use?

    Generally yes, it will be these hotels.

    From time to time we may need to change a specific hotel if for example it’s not available on those given dates. But in such situations, we will always replace with another hotel at the same quality.

    What’s the cancellation policy?

    The £200/$250 deposit is non-refundable. However, if you need to cancel at any point, you can put this towards any future trip you book with us (in any location).

    The rest of the balance is refundable up until 70 days before the trip. From that point we have to start committing funds to local suppliers and so:-

    > 30-70 days before trip – 50% refund

    > 0–30 days before trip – 0% refund

    But, we also recommend that you take out travel insurance to cover you for any unexpected last-minute cancellation.
