Morocco Mysteries & Mint Tea
Go off the beaten track to Tetouan, Ceuta and Taroudant and discover medieval Moorish-Andalusian medinas and rich desert cultures. Enjoy the shopkeepers in the medinas of colorful ancient cities from Marrakech and Tangiers to of Ouarzazate and Zagora. This adventure offers you opportunities to learn how to cook Moroccan cuisine; take in the ground level view from the perspective of a vintage motorcycle sidecar. Walk the narrow alleys of the breath-taking ‘blue city’ of Chefchaouen, also known as the blue jewel of Morocco, beautifully perched beneath the raw peaks of the Rif mountains. Take in the Imperial City of Meknes with the monumental Bab Mansour Gateway, considered to be one of the finest of the great gates of Morocco, the Granaries and the Royal Stables, built to stable 12,000 horses. Venture into the world of Fez’ old medina, with its riot of colors, smells, sights and sounds and wander along the narrow alleyways, then step through a large, ornate wooden door and find yourself in an astonishingly different world. Spend a night in a tent in Southern Morocco’s sand dunes at a camp with just six tents, set far from the others to present you with an authentic Sahara Desert experience. This adventure into Northern Africa has abundant opportunities to learn about distinctive cultures.
