Enter a city of souks and colourful spice markets in lively Marrakech and watch a dramatic sunset from the peak of Erg Chigaga`s golden sand dunes in the Sahara. Wander around the abandoned kasbahs of the Draa Valley, marvel at prehistoric rock carvings and sip mint tea with the Berbers in the remote Anti Atlas. Travel to the far reaches of the Atlantic coastline and relax in the serene seaside town of Mirleft and its art deco neighbour, Sidi Ifni. Head north through Sous Massa National Park, a haven for birdlife, to the white-washed medina of picturesque Essaouira. Unwind in elegant riads, a luxury desert camp, finely renovated kasbahs and traditional guesthouses - capturing the essence of the real Morocco.

What`s staggering about this journey is the sheer beauty and drama of places which are hardly known to most travellers - from the jaw-dropping granite rock faces of the Anti-Atlas Mountains to the wild shores and tranquil fishing villages of the Atlantic Coast.

The trip was fabulous. I can’t imagine why it wasn’t booked fully immediately when you announced it. There were no major glitches, and really no minor glitches. The electrical grid was down for 13 hours at Traditional Maison area, but that is far beyond the control of Travel the Unknown, and, frankly, it adds to the charm of the experience!!! As for our guide Omar and our driver Mohammad for two weeks, they were the BEST !!!! Smart, bright, great sense of humor, good command of English — everything you could ask for. We highly recommend them, and would request them again, if we go to Morocco. Form & balance: perfect balance between travel, sightseeing and free time. Again, many, many thanks for a GREAT trip. We could not have asked for a better adventure !!!
