Upon arrival in Marrakech, you’ll be greeted by your local guides and taken to your riad to unload and unwind. Experience traditional Moroccan cuisine at a local restaurant and learn about the cultural norms travelers should be aware of. Learn how to say your name, greetings and basic phrases in French, Arabic and Spanish to help you navigate the country during your stay.

Wake up to breakfast served in the courtyard of your riad and spend the day exploring the lively medina and market square, Jemaa el-Fnaa. Stop by a local, woman-owned shop to learn how to craft a traditional Moroccan rug, and support them by delivering tools and resources that will aid in the success of their business.

Catch the morning bus and head to the coastal town of Essaouira, known for its surfing and beach culture. Spend the afternoon learning how to surf the Atlantic Oceanic waves and ride a camel along the beach.

Today, you’ll learn about local ecotourism and hike a path that overlooks the Atlantic shoreline and treks through the sand dunes south of the city. Be guided by a local expert to learn about this city’s history and culture, as well as the natural flora and fauna.

Take a ferry over to Mogador Island, the main island of the Iles Purpuraires near Essaouira that has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Tour the island to learn about its history and visit its astonishing ecological and archeological sites.

During your last day in the vibrant coastal city of Essaouira, take your choice of spending the day surfing, shopping, dining, or visiting a local art museum. Catch the evening bus back to Marrakech where you’ll stay for the night before heading back home.

Awake to breakfast in your riad and spend the morning exploring the maze of Marrakech, shop the local markets and dine for a final lunch with your local guides.
