Our unique small group tours to Turkey and Morocco (8 to 12 travellers) offer a rich and rewarding experience, venturing into the fascinating history and culture of these fabulous destinations. Since 1993 we have built up a network of highly qualified friends & colleagues who help make the tours so special.

Dates: 29 March to 14 April 2019 (17 days 16 nights in Morocco)

This unique tour is limited to 10 people, which is more like travelling with a group of friends.

The tour offers a fascinating in-depth look into this exotic and colourful country. Visits include the impressive Hassan 11 Mosque and Rick’s Café in Casablanca, the legendary Royal Cities of Rabat, Meknes, Fez and Marrakech, and in four-wheel-drive vehicles we explore the awe-inspiring Atlas Mountains with their spectacular high passes, incredible geological formations and lush green valleys.

An exclusive highlight is the two days and nights spent in the mountain village of Amassine where we are able to observe traditional Berber life and experience the ancient crafts of rug weaving and natural dyeing now revived by the Ait Khozema Project.

We stay in good quality hotels, beautiful riads and the Project village house in Amassine. Along the way we visit old souks including the famous Jemaa el Fna, kasbahs and medinas and taste the local cuisine. Our guide throughout the tour is Professor Wilfried Stanzer, founder of the Ait Khozema Project and highly regarded expert on Moroccan history, art and culture.

“Having just returned from my second ‘Morocco Adventure’ with Terry and Pam, I can say that it was again absolutely superb. I went in 2011, so this repeat booking speaks for itself! The tour of this fascinating and diverse land and culture is wonderfully and thoughtfully organised, with surprises and wonders unfolding each day. Every word in the brochure is true, and you are in very experienced and capable hands. To be shown Morocco by a man of the calibre, knowledge and expertise of Professor Stanzer, is an almost unbelievable opportunity.” ~ Ngaire, Beaconsfield
