Visit Fes city
Start your visit by losing yourself in the labyrinth of souks, the famous painter Chouara Tannery, the ceramics workshops, and the royal palace.
During this tour of the city of Fez, you will walk in the alleys of the medina of Fez, authentic and traditional, that lives to the rhythm of history, and discover its Koranic schools, its medersas (Attarine, Bounania, etc.), its fountains, its Andalusian style palaces, its mausoleums (Moulay Idriss II, Sidi Ahmed Tijani, etc.), and the Al Karaouiyine University, the oldest in the world.
Visit the many theme souks and numerous craft workshops (the famous tanners’ quarter, the weavers’ quarter, the cabinet makers, etc.), observing the age-old craftsmanship. In the evening, we returned to the hotel.
Here are some places you will see during the visit:
-Al Quaraouiyine Mosque
-Bab Bou Jeloud’s door
-Mausoleum of Moulay Idriss
–The different souks of Fez

Fes- Merzouga Distance 480 km- 7 h
After breakfast, depart for the Merzouga desert. We will cross the Ziz Valley and Ziz Gorges in the province of Errachidia. Stopping at the famous and largest cedar forest in Morocco, then your journey continues along with the luxuriant Zis Oasis, stopping for panoramic views along the way and driving through the welcoming Berber villages, getting to Erfoud, then Rissani, the foundation of the Alaouite dynasty– the current ruling royal family in Morocco. We arrived in the desert to catch the best light for the photos at sunset. We stop at the traditional clothes store for scarves, and we’ll be teaming up for the Sahara. After relaxing for a few minutes in Merzouga, we ride to the camels who are waiting to take you on an adventure in the dunes of Erg Chebbi. It’s a good opportunity to see a wonderful sunset.
We will spend the night in the desert, admire the sky covered by millions of stars (amazing! ), and dinner will be prepared by a Berber chef. We will enjoy the traditional food and listen to a live special show. We will sing and dance around the fire in the middle of the desert.
At night we sleep in tents, especially Berber tents.
