Morocco is a wonderful place with a strong after-taste of exoticism, with snake charmers and magicians, souks stacked with hordes of treasures and glasses of mint tea served in every corner of the souks. The country also offers an unparalleled adventure in some of North Africa’s most impressive landscapes with the desert at its doorstep and the steep heights of the Atlas Mountains beyond the horizon.
Morocco is also a journey into a tranquil and timeless world of cute coastal villages, colorful painted towns that cling to distant hillsides and outposts defended by fairytale forts. This fascinating country is a fusion of the African and Arab worlds, and is imbued with secular custom. It is no wonder that Morocco has been celebrated by artists and writers for decades and continues to delight everyone who visits.
Authenticity is at the rendezvous in the Medina of Marrakech
The lively and dynamic buzz of the Marrakech Medina sums up Morocco for many visitors. The Medina is accessible via the vast Jamaa el-fna square where, it seems that half of the city converges throughout the day and in the evening to hang out with stall merchants, traditional musicians, snake charmers and random acrobats. Once inside the medina itself, you enter a world of labyrinths full of alleys and shopkeepers. It is an experience full of colorful local life and noisy, and not to be missed on your Moroccan tours.
