Great 7 days in Morocco from Marrakech

We were greeted by our friendly driver, Hassan at Marrakech airport, and once we settled into a comfortable car, we went on our adventure trip to Morocco. We were a small group of four friends and we connected with Hassan as if he were part of our group. It was easy, friendly, and sweet, he has a beautiful smile. He was the perfect driver/guide for us. I’m glad we spent a lot of time with him. He has always been a professional and we liked to learn about the culture and history of his country. Driving around the city seems stressful. Hassan handled it easily. I don’t always feel safe when other people drive. Hassan was a good driver, neither impatient nor aggressive. It was a very comfortable trip and you can say that Hassan was comfortable in the vehicle and made our trip fun and knew a lot about the history of every place where we were.
Thanks to the Marrakech Tour Company team for this great experience and thanks to Hassan for his excellent work making our Great One Week in Morocco so memorable.

Fantastic One Week in Morocco from Marrakech

I would like to have more stars to give you! we had a fantastic experience. At first, we didn’t know what to expect from the accommodation, as we were not familiar with the Riads and Dars, but they were all beautiful and clean and the staff was wonderful. Said, our guide, was fantastic, which meant a lot, as you can imagine for all those days being in the car with him for so many hours. The two hiking guides for the 7 days from Marrakech that we made excursions on foot were so well informed and friendly. We have already recommended this company to everyone. From someone who has experienced job booking trips, I can tell you that it was first class!

Marrakech

Marrakech which is a French spelling is one of the most important cities in the kingdom of Morocco. It is the fourth largest city in the country just after Casablanca. The city is located to the north of the foothills of the snowcapped Atlas Mountains. Marrakech is one of the most important imperial cities of Morocco and has been inhabited by the Berber families since olden times. The original city was founded in 1062 by Abu Bakr ibn Umar.

Like all other cities in Morocco, Marrakech comprises an old city that is packed with many vendors and their stalls. This is one of the busiest cities in Africa and serves as an economic center as well as a famous destination for tourists. The real estate and hotel industry is thriving over the years. Marrakech is very popular among the French as they own properties in this city. Prepare for a great time of your lives in the lively city of Marrakech where you can indulge yourself in the cultural heritage of Morocco. The best time to visit this place is around March to May in springtime as the temperature is comparatively low along with affordable prices.

Agadir

Agadir is one of the most important cities of Morocco, which is located at the shore of the Atlantic Ocean, near the foot of the Atlas Mountains. It’s at a distance of 507 km to the south of Casablanca the largeset city in Morocco. Agadir is a busy port with a sprawling golden beach resort visited by thousands of travelers. An earthquake, however, unfortunately, ravished Agadir in 1960 and it has to be rebuilt.

Agadir is one of the most luxurious destinations in Morocco and what lures travelers to this beautiful city is the sun, blue crystal waters of the golden beaches, the jostling pubs full of people, and the smell of crunch and sumptuous pizza. Agadir is known to cater to families who would like to spend a relaxing time on the beaches, swimming and frolicking on the golden sands. There are some sightseeing places as well. The best time to visit this beautiful beach resort is around the months of January when the temperatures are mild and the waters are warm.

The name Agadir comes from the meaning wall or a fortified business. This comes from the Berber language. The city of Agadir’s full name in Tashelhit is Agadir n Yighir which means the fortress of the cape.

Essaouira

Essaouira was once known as Mogador and is situated between Agadir in the south and Safi in the north. The city is well protected by walls from the pirates, but you won’t be away from the beauty of the sea and the beach. La Skala du Port and Porte de la Marine are the highlighting monuments of the city.

Zagora

Zagora is located at the foot of the Atlas, in the valley of the river Draa, a huge palm grove of 200 km long surrounded by fruit trees lost in the sands of the Sahara.

Old fortress Almoravid to control the Saharan trade was founded in the Middle Ages by the Saadians as a gate for the conquest of Morocco and the Sahara and as a starting point for caravans. It is in fact the cradle of this dynasty. The city was founded alongside the kasbah by the French in the protectorate for the control of the region.

M'hamid

It is a small town located in the upper Draa valley next to the Sahara desert.
It is accessed from distant Zagora 100 km. by a winding road that follows the Draa Valley. In this area, the river is encased between mountains forming several gorges, where next to the palm trees we can see the desert acacias, which thanks to their resistance to adverse weather conditions and dietary and medicinal properties, are an economic resource for the inhabitants of the oases.

Mhamid is an ancient place of passage for caravans to black Africa that until 1990 was a forbidden place, because of its proximity to the border of Western Sahara and Algeria. Today it is a center of desert tourism for its proximity to the Saharan dunes.
It was the stage of the old Paris-Dakar rally.
In your souk you can find local products, almonds, cuscus, henna, saffron, dates etc.

Tinghir

Tinghir is a large oasis of 85,000 inhabitants, stretching some 30 km long and several kilometers wide. It is included in the oases of southern Morocco, a world heritage site, with an abundance of geological and mineral deposits and with great human wealth, its palm groves, Khetaras fountains, and moussem. The inhabitants are descendants of several Berber tribes who settled in an area rich in water.
