When it comes to exploring exotic locations, there's nothing quite like the benefit of a local expert's wisdom. That's why we've teamed up with Encounters Travel for the Moroccan Mosaics Tour. This nine-day package takes in everything, from the intoxicating aromas and energy of Marrakech's markets to the timeless landscape of the north African desert, with English-speaking guides and an itinerary that offers a real taste of this unforgettably diverse country.

Itinerary
day 1: Upon touch down at Marrakech airport, Encounters Travel staff will meet you (a 24-hour pick-up service is included) and transfer you to the hotel, where you'll spend the next two nights. Once you've settled in, English speaking guides will show you around the local area. Overnight at Marrakech hotel; dinner provided.

day 2: The day will begin with a trip to Koutoubia Mosque, the largest mosque in Morocco and crowned with a magnificent minaret; you'll also visit the mausoleum and Bahia Palace. Later, it's on to the bustling souks and markets of Jemaa el-Fnaa Square. Overnight at Marrakech hotel; breakfast and dinner provided.

day 3: Head to Morocco's most famous kasbah (citadel), the UNESCO World Heritage site Ait-Ben-Haddou, reached by a dramatic drive across the highest pass in north Africa. Afterwards its on to incredible Ouarzazate city, the door to the desert, and a well-known film location. Overnight at Ouarzazate hotel; breakfast and dinner provided.

day 4: The incredible sights continue on 'the road of a thousand kasbahs' en route to the Amerhidel kasbah, after which you can take in the desert landscape from the Dades Canyon. Overnight at Tinghir hotel; breakfast and dinner provided.

day 5: Start this morning with a visit to the Todra Gorge, before continuing the drive through the Atlas Mountains. Then you'll hop into rugged 4WD vehicles to travel through the dunes to Merzouga, where you'll watch the sun set over the desert before bedding down in a traditional Berber camp. An optional desert camel ride is also available (surcharge applies). Overnight in Berber camp; breakfast and dinner provided.

day 6: After breakfast with your Berber hosts, the journey continues through the dunes to the town of Rissani, and the birthplace of the Alaouite Dynasty. Then, it's on to Erfoud—nestled between the Atlas mountains to the north and the Sahara desert to the south, it's a truly spectacular site. You will then return to Zagora. Overnight at Zagora hotel; breakfast and dinner provided.

day 7: Depart for Ouarzazate and pass through the imposing, palm-fringed Draa Valley. You will pay a visit to the village of Tamegroute, an important site for Sufi Muslims, before travelling back over the Tizi N'tichka col and through local Berber villages to Marrakech. Overnight at Marrakech hotel; breakfast and dinner provided.

day 8: On your final day you'll be free to explore Marrakech on your own, or take one of a range of extra day trips and excursions, including a hot air balloon ride and quad biking (surcharge applies). Overnight at Marrakech hotel; breakfast and dinner provided.

day 9: Your day is free until departure for Marrakech airport. Breakfast provided.
