Join Smith Travel’s most thorough exploration yet of exotic Morocco, reaching beyond the Kingdom’s most famed attractions — including six of its World Heritage Sites — to also explore the hidden facets of the land, visit astounding locales of history and nature, and meet with locals in all walks of life. The itinerary reaches from mysterious Fes in the far North to the Sahara Desert in the deep South, crossing the majestic Atlas Mountains in between. Along the way you will wander through vibrant medinas, where scents of spices and leather waft along alleyways framed by centuries-old architecture; learn about the traditions of Morocco’s indigenous Berber tribesmen in the spectacular setting of the Mt. Toubkal National Park; hear insights from the curator of the unique Museum of Moroccan Judaism; explore ancient kasbahs well off tourism tracks.
