Morocco is a bustling, crowded city steeped in history. You can spend days walking through the local bazaars, sampling local cuisine and street food, and watching the snake charmers work their magic on the tourists. Check out Jemaa el-Fnaa, one of the largest marketplaces in morocco.

Top two must see’s while you are there:

The Fes Tanneries: These tanneries have been in business since the Middle Ages and still operate very similarly as they did back then. You can find a dizzying array of some of the most supple and rich looking leather around. There are guided tours available to help you navigate the busy tanneries but if you would rather go it alone, you can attempt your bargaining skills at the tanneries on your own terms!

The Sahara Desert: You should consider booking a night or two in Merzouga, the most popular place for anyone that wants to truly experience the sights, sounds, and smells of the Sahara.

Ensure you are checking out your tour in detail so that you are fully prepared and knowledgeable for your excursion into the desert.

Safe travels!
