? Our group trips are a great chance to travel with others. We also recommend adding in a few extra nights tailor-made to ensure you build the perfect itinerary.

Morocco is a country you have to see at least once in a lifetime. It’s the gateway to Africa and it’s packed with colour, culture and history. It’s been traversed by Roman legions, Berbers and medieval Muslim intellectuals. We’ll see all the highlights of Morocco in one trip. You’ll ride a donkey through the Saharah desert, visit the famous Blue City and explore the busy streets of Marrakesh.

More Information


Unfortunately, Morocco criminalises same-sex sexual activity between men and between women. LGBTQ+ individuals are also urged to practice discretion and avoid public displays of affection. While the climate is gradually becoming more accepting, especially in cosmopolitan cities, there have been sporadic crackdowns and arrests in recent years.

Overall, Morocco lacks progressiveness on LGBTQ+ rights compared to other destinations, though luxury hospitality businesses make efforts to welcome gay travellers. At Out Of Office, we only work with resorts and hotels that we know are inclusive and welcoming.

In detail

? Don't forget that most of our itineraries can be totally customized. Our expert team will be able to talk you through all the options.

Day 1: Casablanca

Your Morocco adventure begins in the city of Casablanca. It’s famed from that movie but there’s much more to it than the film noir myth. You’ll be transferred to the hotel. Evening at leisure.

Day 1: Casablanca

Day 2: Casablanca to Tangier

Today we’ll explore Casablanca. It was founded by the Berbers in the 7th century. It subsequently developed a considerably French vibe during the French colonial era. It has one of the largest mosques in the world.

We’ll then transfer to Tangiers, known as the gateway to Europe – you can see it from Spain’s southern coast. It became a gay hub in the mid-20th century and attracted LGBT+ writers like William Burroughs.

Day 2: Casablanca to Tangier

Day 3: Tangiers to Fes

We’ll visit the stunning Blue City of Chefchaouen – it’s a few hours from Tangiers. It’s one of the most Instagramable places in the world. It is, quite literally, a blue city! There are many little cafes to explore. We’ll then head to Fes.

Day 3: Tangiers to Fes

Day 4: Fes

Fes is the world’s largest Medieval medina-city. It’s an intricate web of winding alleyways and souks. It’s home to one of the world’s oldest universities and striking examples of Hispano-Moorish architecture. We’ll visit the old Jewish quarter and the palace of the Merinid dynasty.

Day 4: Fes

Day 5: Meknes & Volubilis

Volubilis is one of the best-preserved Roman ruins in Morocco. It includes triumphal arches and well-preserved mosaics. We’ll then head to Meknes, a former imperial city built in the 17th-century by Sultan Moulay Ismail.

He wanted his court to rival that of Louis XIV and he came pretty close. His shrine is one of the few that can be visited by non-Muslims.

Day 5: Meknes & Volubilis

Day 6: Fez to Merzouga

Today we’ll travel through the desert to Erfoud, passing the Atlas Mountains. We’ll travel part of the way on camelback over the dunes. At our desert camp you’ll be greeted with mint tea, pastries and sundowners. Watch the sunset over the dunes of the Sahara.

Day 6: Fez to Merzouga

Day 7: Quarzazate

Quarzazate was the stopping point for African traders travelling through Morocco and Europe. We’ll travel the southern slopes of the Atlas range through Dades Valley. Check out the Kasbahs along Kasbah road.

Day 7: Quarzazate

Day 8: Marrakech via Ait Benhaddou

We’ll visit Ait Benhaddou on route to the capital. It’s a fortified village and one of the best-preserved Kasbahs in the Atlas region. The village has been used in many movies, including Gladiator and Lawrence of Arabia.

Overnight in Marrakesh.

Day 8: Marrakech via Ait Benhaddou

Days 9-10: Marrakesh

Marrakesh is the jewel in Morroco’s crown. It’s a city that’s both modern and like a snapshot of another time. Marrakesh is a bustling city with huge bazaars and crowded streets.

We’ll take a trip in a horse-drawn carriage through the city, explore the Menara gardens and the Yves Saint Laurent Museum. This colourful city has inspired many artists and designers. Other highlights include the Bahia Palace, wandering the labyrinthine souks and seeing the fire eaters at Jemaa El Fna. We’ll have two full days to see the highlights of Marrakesh.

Days 9-10: Marrakesh
