Considered by travellers to be one of the most fascinating countries in North Africa for the variety of landscapes that characterize it, and which is impossible to find elsewhere, all in a single destination.
In a succession of scenarios of a thousand and one nights: an expedition to the country of the great Empire.
The charm of its Imperial Cities, the majestic Atlas Mountains with its alpine landscapes, the immense rich valleys of Ksar fortified and thousands of tiny villages will take us back in time.
It is one of the most intense journeys that can be faced for the different social and cultural aspects that will amaze with its unpredictability, rewarding with the beauty, the country, the culture and the amazing encounters thanks to a mixed Arab-Berber-African black people. Ethnic groups that coexist without problems.
Without forgetting the tasty typical cuisine with the ubiquitous "Tajine" (beef or lamb stew or vegetables) and the very pleasant rest breaks in typical hammams.
And of course the numerous architectural styles brought by foreigners who express from the rudimentary decorations to the more refined and luxurious ones of coloured tiles.
You can count on a guide who will accompany you to discover Morocco and on an assistance van, ready to intervene in case of need.
