This tour may be combined with the Andalucia, Madrid and Barcelona tour to Spain (April 19 - 30, 2020).


THIS TOUR IS FULL. WE ARE ACCEPTING STANDBY RESERVATIONS.

The exotic beauty of Morocco is veiled in legend and romance. Edith Wharton captured its magic when she described it as a "land of mists and mysteries, trailing silver veils through which domes and minarets, mighty towers and ramparts of flushed stone, hot palm groves and Atlas snows, appear and disappear at the will of the Atlantic cloud-drifts."

With the Deserts and Oases Tour, we'll embark on the exotic and luxurious journey, explore the world of Morocco's ancient cultural traditions and experience some of the most beautiful and dramatic scenery in the world: from the sun-kissed Atlantic beaches to the snow-covered peaks of the High Atlas Mountains, from classical Roman ruins to quaint Alpine villages, from colorful souks to sophisticated boutiques, and from cinnamon-colored sand dunes of the Sahara to the rustling palm trees in the tranquil, lush oases. We'll enjoy private luxury riads, the magic of ancient kasbahs and a dreamy night at a Berber camp, under the countless stars of the Sahara. We'll camel caravan in the desert, hike in the Todra Gorge, take a private cooking class, and explore the labyrinths of perfectly-preserved medieval cities.

  • We'll spend 1 day in Casablanca, 5 days in the Imperial City of Fez, 2 days in the Sahara Desert, then 2 days in the Valley of Roses, beforeconcluding for 3 days in Marrakech.
     

  • While in Casablanca, we'll tour the sophisticated Art Deco city on the shores of the Atlantic, visit Hassan II Mosque, second only in size to the Mecca and have dinner at Rick's Cafe.
     

  • In Rabat, we'll tour Palais Royal, the Hassan Tower and the Mohammed V Mausoleum.
     

  • We'll marvel at the impressive mosaics throughout the well-preserved Roman ruins in Volubilis.

  • We'll enjoy a private cooking class in Fez.
     
  • We'll admire the towering Mid Atlas as well as the High Atlas Mountains.
     
  • We'll spend a night in a luxury Berber camp, under the starry skies of the Sahara Desert.

Testimonials 

Having lunch at our guides family home and going to chef Michaels home gave a personal insight into Morocco. The tour was extremely organized without being regimented. The combination of day tours, shopping, learning and dining were an excellent balance. Loved Rick’s Café. The historical sites were a wonderful in depth learning experience about Morocco. Thank you! – Phyllis from Florida

I loved it all – the culture, history and camel ride. It was overall more than I anticipated. It was a fabulous tour with the right blend of history, culture and sights. The local guides were a great addition to enhance the tour. – Linda from Pennsylvania

The following were wonderful: camel ride in Sahara Desert, lunch with the local family, lunch at Scorpion house, and experiencing medina life at Fez. Riad Fez was a stunning and wonderful hotel. – Connie from New York

The Sahara  Desert Berber Tent experience was top of the list!  The desert trip was magical, to be remembered by all ! – Pamela from California

Loved the Sahara, the camel experience, and the unbelievable scenery on the drive over the Atlas Mountains! - Lynne from Washington

I really enjoyed all 3 tours: wonderful guides, great food, everyone got along well, a memorable experience. So glad I did these 3 (Morocco, Spain, Portugal) in a row. In many cases, history just flowed and connected from one to the other. Marta, Kerry and Angela were all great tour leaders, each with a different personality and style of leading, but all equal in greatly enhancing their trip. - Andrea from Nevada

It was one of those “Pinch me, I can’t believe I’m here” moments. - Lou from Florida

I loved the cooking class and of course the camel ride into the sunset. But I simply loved the whole experience. Kind of magical. Thank you so much for another tour that was beyond my wildest dreams. - Renee from New York

Morocco was fantastic. We hit all the “must see” places & I loved every minute. I loved Fes! And Marta really cares about each person’s comfort and happiness and it shows! - Victoria from New Jersey

The trip to Morocco was just as wonderful as I expected it to be. The itinerary, the hotels, the group, and our wonderful guide, Renata, provided an experience I doubt anyone will forget.  My sincere thanks to you, S&S, and Renata for providing the trip of a lifetime to fourteen very lucky ladies.  Mohammed, also, was an excellent guide. - 
Martha from Caifornia

Itinerary – great, accommodations and meals – great, other travelers – fun. Absolutely incredible trip to an exotic and intriguing country. - Deb from Pennsylvania

As always, traveling with Sights and Soul is a wonderful, almost hassle-free way of experiencing new destination, as well as meeting new friends. - Denise from Indiana

Loved it! Learned so much about the culture, religion, and history. Great experience. - Laura from Tennessee

Thank you again for all the hard work you did to make this trip so special for me. I really appreciate all your planning and the execution of the trip. - Rebekah from California

I did have a great time. (I'm not just saying that...really) Thank you for providing an experience that showed us the contrasts of Moroccan life - the cities, the mountains, villages, the great Sahara and the valley. - Paula from Connecticut

Why travel with other women?
Many women do not have families or compatible friends who wish to travel. When going on a main-stream tour, women often find that most activities are geared towards couples and quite often they feel left out. Singles' tours are not always what women are looking for. If you do not have a traveling companion, there is also the issue of the expensive "single supplement", sometimes as much as 50 or even 100 percent of the tour cost. By going on women-only tours, women can easily avoid paying for the single supplement by sharing a room with another woman traveler.
