Trips by Destination



Exotic and alluring, Morocco offers a fascinating culture; we’ll follow the ‘trail of the kasbahs’ into the Sahara, hike in the High Atlas, bike along the coast to the resort town of Essaouira, explore the town of Marrakech and more...

Accommodations- Classic


Dar Chamaa, Quarzazate

This 20-room hotel opened in 2009 and boasts comfortable air-con guest rooms, restaurant and bar. You will have time for a morning swim in the large pool before we depart.

Azalai Lodge, Zagora

This palace style 4-star hotel is the best in Zagora. The rooms are well appointed and the grounds, surrounding the swimming pool, are opulent.

Berber Tented Camp

Located in the sand dunes of the Sahara, canvas tents with beds, cotton sheets and warm blankets will welcome you to this oasis in the dessert. With moroccan rugs underfoot, and the twinkling light of kerosene lamps we think you'll find this evening one of your most memorable in Morocco.


Riad Ksar Ighnda, Ait Ben Haddou

At the foot of the Atlas, the Riad is a place out of time where you'll relax and admire the beautiful lights of the desert in an authentic berbere atmosphere.



L'Oliveraie de Merigha, Ouirgane

This charming hotel is situated in a 4-hectare park with views of Mount Toubcal, and has a large swimming pool and excellent French influenced restaurant.


Villa Maroc, Essaouira

This former private palace has been tastefully renovated into the most stylish and intimate Riad hotel in the city. The Villa, originally two 18th century riads, immerses you in a world of simplicity and warmth enhanced by the flavours of ancestral family cooking. Enjoy the superb views from the rooftop terrace.

Jardins de la Koutoubia, Marrakech

This 5-star hotel is a wonderfully luxurious hotel to finish at. The rooms are comfortable, the pool is large and the location, just steps to the UNESCO protected Jemma El Fna squar, is ideal. Website
