Guide will meet you at your arrival gate at Mohammed V Airport in Casablanca and check you in to your hotel in Rabat, a smooth 45 mile drive.  Guided historical and cultural tour of the capital city will feature some monuments but mainly the vibrant market of Souika; a place of all trades.

We will take the back roads visiting few day markets of villages outside of mass tourism.  Nkhila will be one of these villages. We will continue to the farmer market of the  9th century ancient Roman city of Volubilis, followed by the citadel of Moulay Idris nesteled at Mount Zerhoun.  Lunch will be in the village square to taste some of most authentic staples at typical Moroccan eateries.  The next stop the Versailles of Morocco, just 15 miles away, a guided historic tour of the 17the century Imperial city of Meknes,  built by Moulay Ismail to rival Fez where you will stop for the night.  We will not miss the H'dim square and afternoon auction market.

Full day will be devoted to your historic walking tour of the Medina of Fez.  The most ancient of the imperial capitals and the most complete medieval city of the Islamic world. Your guide will prepare you with some tips on the art of bargaining to explore this endless market of all goods.  You can also consult with him for quality of goods. He is your guide and your buying advisor.

Time spent in Fez will reveal much about the sophistication of the Moroccan artisan, providing an unparalleled learning experience to those who cross its path.  Your morning will be spent visiting the Medina.  Our specialized guide will take you on a historic discovery of the city of Fez starting at the King’s Palace and its Meshwar with ramparts and majestic gates, each gives to a major souk specialized in its trade dominated by a local guild.

Nere we are in a real medieval city, not even a bicycle is able to be used as tool of transportation. Only donkeys, mules and horses are able to help moving all what the city produces and needs as supplies.

The first guilds you will immediately encounter are the cobblers, the saddlers and black smiths interlaced by some caravansaries for tribesmen who come from the surrounding areas to trade and supply their needs.  Down the hill to Juteya you will encounter all sorts of crafts but noticeably carpenters and leather workers as one of the traditional tanneries is not far.  This walk will lead you to El Ashabine square with its variety of activities. From there, you will wind your way to the Sagha square which will lead you to Attarine then Souk el Henna and the Mausoleum of Moulay Idris, the founder of Fez. Next to it, you will visit the Nejjarine square with its famous fountain, its guild of carpentry and the museum of folk arts at the Fondouk. The best market here is the Merktan, a second hand goods of mainly what is artistic or antics.

You will walk to the tannery and on to visit the great Mosque university of Al Quarrawiyyine, passing by Shemma’ine, the market of dried fruits. After that, you will visit the Medersa Attarine and walk to Sbetryyine, a guild of book binders, which will lead you to the Seffarine Square, where the tapping of metalworkers is still deafening passerby as it was the case for centuries. You will break for lunch then continue exploring the marvels of Fez Medina. These will highlight the Dyers souk, Foundouk Tetouani a medieval warehouse.  You will end your walking tour and retreat to your hotel for dinner and other accommodations.

Departure to the Berber villages in the Atlas Mountains of Azrou, an important market center for the region’s Berber tribes, located at a major junction of nomadic and villagers routes. We will also stop at Khenifra, the hub of tribal textiles, here you will see Berber locals trade rugs, kilims, saddle bags, embroidered capes and all sorts of textiles where the Middle Atlas ranges give way to the High Atlas Mountains, whose peaks are visible through the haze, soaring to over 12,000 feet. You will arrive to Marrakech in late afternoon, where you will conclude your day with dinner and other accommodations at your hotel.

Your local guide will meet you in the morning at the lobby of your hotel to take you walking visit of historic and artistic Marrakech. You will devote your morning to the exploration of Marrakech’s many historical sites, then the afternoon to auction markets of principal goods crafted in Marrakech.  We will take you to guilds auctions of goods before they reach the shelves of Bazaars and shops.  We will teach you how to bargain and how to be part of this traditional market without intermediary.  Shopping in Marrakech has become a nightmare though you find all imaginable arts and crafts but the touristy shops have their networking that is not sustainable at all and does not benefit the artisan by any means. Our professional buyer will advise on goods qualities and help you to deal with artisans directly.

You will begin your day with an excursion to the Ourika Valley, where you will visit the traditional Berber Souks, as well as some workshops. After lunch, you will visit the Berber Museum of Arts and Crafts to learn about the dwellers of these mountains and their products before you discover their workshops and sophisticated, hand-made products.
