Whistle stop tour of Morocco and its beautiful Atlantic Coast
The Kingdom of Morocco is incredibly rich in history, culture and atmosphere and this is the ideal trip if you want to see everything on offer. We visit Morocco's most prominent monuments, including the exterior of Casablanca's Hassan II Mosque, the tallest minaret in the world, and Rabat's Mohamed V Mauseoleum.
From Fez, undoubtedly one of the world's finest Islamic cities, we continue our journey with essential stopovers at the Roman ruins of Volubilis and the imperial city of Meknes. We take an exhilarating train journey from casablanca to Marrakech, to explore the labyrinth of souks and famous Djemaa el Fna Square.
Our final reward is a day in Essaouira, where we have time to relax on the beach, visit the whitewashed old town or simply enjoy the incredible seafood with a stunning backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean.
What makes this trip responsible?
We have an excellent long-term relationship with the local operator who employ and train all leaders. We provide refresher training with a focus on Responsible Tourism, so our local leaders can educate our clients locally on helping to preserve the way of life in their area.
This itinerary visits local cooperatives that help keep local agriculture alive and fair. With regular training between UK leaders and local staff, we can ensure our responsible tourism practices are passed onto local leaders. Where possible, we use family-run accommodations yet this is not always possible in major cities.
Morocco Community project
After funding a water tower for the remote village of Tijhza in 2000, we have been involved in a variety of schemes requested by the Berbers to improve their community life. With a new water pipeline system fitted in the village, every house can now enjoy running water and our funds have also stretched to paying for much-needed operations for some of the children. Our biggest achievement is the village hammam (Moroccan steam bath) that will help with important hygiene issues as well as creating a self-sustainable income.
Get involved by sending your leftover dirhams to Amanda Ceraolo in the Exodus office; donate online via our website or join a volunteer departure (Trip code: AMO) led by project founder, Andy McKee.
