This Morocco tour covers it all.

From the mesmerizing towns and cities of Marrakech and Meknes to the towering Rif and High Atlas Mountains, from the magical Sahara desert to the natural wonder that is the Dades Valley…and a lengthy list of off-the-beaten path experiences along the way.

You’ll sleep in a traditional nomad tent out in the desert, visit local villages and learn about the traditional life of the Berbers and Bedouins. You’ll visit markets and ancient cities, go for a hike through beautiful gorges and take a 4WD adventure into seldom-explored and otherworldly natural landscapes. And you’ll also have time to simply enjoy the people, food and relaxed pace of life.

Every day in Morocco offers something new and rewarding…are you ready?

Activities (this is not everything, just a general idea!):

Marrakech – full city tour, sprawling medina (market), Ben Youssef madrasa
Dades Valley – short hikes, 4WD excursion to remote villages, visiting nomadic communities, Valley of the Roses
Merzouga/Sahara Desert – overnight desert experience (nomadic village among the sand dunes), Berber village

What other travelers say

I march to the beat of my own drum. The odder, the crazier, the stranger, the better. I've yet to find a tour that truly allows you to the feel the soul and embrace the food of a culture. Until now. Derek's Morocco Tour is truly a fantastic ride, with opportunities to go off and explore on your own if you so desire. To get lost and find your own way through amazing markets, cities, and desert. If you want a truly unique experience, I highly suggest this tour.

Since 1999 I’ve been living, traveling and working around the world. I’ve taught English in Thailand, worked as a Tour Manager on board cruise ships and in 2010, I started the travel blog, WanderingEarl.com. Since 2012, in between my personal travels, I’ve been organizing and leading tours in over a dozen countries as part of my Wandering Earl Tours project.

Whenever asked why I travel, my answer is always the same. People. I am fascinated by the fact that travel allows me to meet people around the world that I would never have met otherwise. Through these interactions I am able to gain a first-hand education like no other and that education alone is exactly what keeps me on the road for so long. As a result, organizing and leading trips around the world has been the perfect match for me!
