Details: 12 day Morocco tour from Casablanca

Our agency offers a wide variety of tours across Morocco, with the 12-day discovery tour from Casablanca a perfect in-depth option to explore the country. No matter the tour of your choosing, you will see many wonderful places and learn a great deal about the Kingdom of Morocco, known for its diverse culture, terrain, and even lifestyle. 

Your journey begins in Morocco’s biggest city, Casablanca. The famed oceanside city is home to the largest mosque in Africa, and is the 14th largest in the world – Hassan II Mosque. 

From there, enjoy the hustle and bustle of Morocco’s capital, Rabat, and be swept up in the beauty of the North as you head to the one-of-a-kind “Blue City”, Chefchaouen. You will also get a chance to visit Tangier, a pearl on the Mediterranean coast.

Get lost in the endlessly winding streets of Fez, one of the oldest cities in the world and with a historical center composed of more than a thousand streets. A city of true wonder, a feast for the eyes at every turn, and renowned as the capital of ceramics. A visit to the market is a must-do, where you can try your hand at the art of negotiating with locals. 

Head south to the crown jewel of Morocco – the dunes of the Sahara Desert. Hop on a camel and be taken for a memorable trip across the Erg Chebbi dunes to a desert camp, where you will spend a magical night below the stars.

On the way to Marrakech, be ready for action-packed days which include stops at the fascinating local market of Rissani, the jaw-dropping gorges of Toudra and Dades, the world-famous Kasbah of Aït Benhaddou, and the High Atlas Mountains. 

Once in Marrakech, immerse yourself in the buzz of the Jamaa El Fna Square. Join in on a drum circle, catch the performance of a snake charmer, or eat like a local at one of the street food kiosks before winding your way through the souk and historical monuments. 

Last but certainly not least, beach time! Essaouira is one of the most charming towns on the Atlantic coast, steeped in a rich history left behind by the Portuguese and Jewish communities.

Morocco itinerary: 12 day tour from Casablanca


On the first day of your 12-day in Morocco tour from Casablanca, you will be greeted by your guide at the airport upon arrival. Get straight to it asa you hit the streets for a wander through the coastal city.

Casablanca is known for its vibrant atmosphere, modern architecture, and the amazing Hassan II Mosque, the largest in Africa and one of the biggest in the world. Be sure to also check out the Corniche for a nice walk along the Atlantic Ocean and the Mohammed V Square.

After that, you will head straight to the capital of Morocco. In Rabat, you will pay a visit to the Hassan Tower, the Mausoleum of Mohammed V, and the Kasbah of the Udayas. Also, take some time for a nice stroll through the Andalusian Gardens and the old medina in order to fully experience its unique vibe.


On the second day of your 12-day in Morocco tour from Casablanca, depart from Rabat and head toward Tangier.

En route, you will stop at the small, yet charming coastal town of Asilah. It’s well-known as a haven for art lovers, as it’s famous for artwork and paintings. 

Carry on to Tangier, where you will have the chance to visit key local monuments, such as the Caves of Hercules, the Spartel Cape and the old medina. Due to its influence primarily from Spain and France, Tangier bears a strong resemblance to Europe as one of the more modern cities in the country. 


On the third day of your 12-day in Morocco tour from Casablanca, you will set off for the enchanting “Blue City” of Chefchaouen. The town can be found nestled in the Rif Mountains, and is known for its picturesque streets and vibrant blue-painted buildings.

Once there, you will have the time to wind your way through the town’s narrow streets, shop for handicrafts, plus immerse yourself in both the town’s magical beauty and laid-back atmosphere.


On the fourth day of your 12-day in Morocco tour from Casablanca, it will be time to take a historical trip to Roman times as you head off for the ancient Roman ruins of Volubilis, the only Roman ruins in Morocco. There you will visit the well-preserved archaeological site and simply marvel at what remains of temples, mansions, and impressive mosaics from the 1st century AD.

Your journey will carry on to Meknes, one of four imperial cities steeped in a rich history. There you will visit the famous Bab Mansour Gate and explore the lively medina. Once ready to call it a night, you can head back to your riad.


On day five day of your 12-day tour in Morocco from Casablanca, get ready for a full day of exploration of Fes, the cultural and spiritual heart of Morocco. Get “lost” with your local guide as you wander through the narrow winding streets of the UNESCO-listed Fes el-Bali (Old Medina) where you’ll pay a visit to centuries-old tanneries, intricately decorated mosques, plus one of the oldest universities in the world and the first ever founded by a woman, the University of Al-Quaraouiyine. While there, don’t forget to immerse yourself in the medina’s bustling atmosphere as you wind your way through the old city’s countless lively markets.

Not to mention, discover some of the most fascinating historical hot spots outside of the medina to experience Fes from a different perspective. Stops include the Royal Palace Gates, the Jewish Quarter, and the South Tower, which offers an incredible panoramic view of the old city.

As if that weren’t enough, Fes is also famous the world over for its one-of-a-kind ceramics. To learn more, you’ll have the opportunity to get to meet local artisans and see first-hand how they practice their craft.


On day six of your 12-day tour in Morocco from Casablanca, enjoy a free day in Fes!


On day seven of your 12-day tour in Morocco from Casablanca, travel south through the Middle Atlas Mountains. Along the way, you’ll pass through Ifrane, known as “Little Switzerland,” and explore the beautiful cedar forest in Azrou, home to the Barbary apes. You can even feed the monkeys if you fancy!

After your time with your new forest friends, you’ll drive through the scenic Ziz Valley, dotted with seemingly endless palm groves and small Berber villages. In the evening you’ll arrive to Merzouga, where you’ll hop on a camel and trek into the mesmerising Sahara Desert to spend the night in a camp.


On day eight of your 12-day tour in Morocco from Casablanca, we encourage you to wake up early in order to witness the stunning sunrise over the Sahara Desert. It’s worth it, we promise!

After breakfast at the camp, you’ll explore the surrounding area and visit a nomadic family to learn more about their traditional way of life.

Later venture into the stunning Erg Chebbi Dunes and enjoy the tranquility of the desert. In the afternoon you’ll head back to the hotel near the palm grove, where you can relax and take a refreshing dip in the swimming pool.


On day nine of your 12-day in Morocco tour from Casablanca, your journey continues to Rissani, a traditional market town known for its vibrant souks and historical monuments. Visit the Moulay Ali Cherif Mausoleum and explore the local market.

Following some tea and spice shopping, the day continues with a tour of the impressive Todra Gorges, known for its towering cliffs and breathtaking scenery, plus the sensational Dades Valley, characterized by its stunning rock formations and picturesque landscapes. Spend the night in a hotel overlooking the valley.


On day ten of your 12-day in Morocco tour from Casablanca, it’s another early morning as you hit the road to drive along the “Road of a Thousand Kasbahs.” Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kasbah Aït Ben Haddou, a fortified village that has featured in many award-winning films and series, such as Lawrence of Arabia, Gladiator, and Game of Thrones.

The journey continues through the High Atlas Mountains with its scenic landscapes and panoramic views. Marrakech will be your port of call in the evening, where you’ll enjoy a wander through the old streets of the medina before finishing the night at your riad. 


Today you will spend the day exploring the vibrant city of Marrakech as you visit the iconic Koutoubia Mosque, the world-famous Djemaa el-Fna square, and weave your way through the streets of the UNESCO-listed medina.
