Casablanca, Marrakesh, Dades, Erfoud, Fez and Rabat

Spiced with North African culture and a soupçon of French flavor, Morocco captivates with its old-world traditions and magnificent landscapes. Our escorted Morocco tour from the U.S. encompasses must-see destinations like Casablanca, Marrakesh, Fez and Rabat. And, if you like, a noble camel will take you on an unforgettable ride during a full-day Sahara Desert excursion. (Cue theme song from Lawrence of Arabia!) You’ll also have time to savor the country’s delightful customs, like the ritual of Moroccan tea, and delectable cuisine—couscous, tagine and pastilla. From ocean to oasis, mountains to mosques and souks to UNESCO World Heritage sites, majestic Morocco will charm you with its vibrant contrasts and warm Mediterranean lifestyle. 5/5 stars on Tripadvisor!

No Additional Entry Requirements for U.S. Passport Holders

A valid passport is required for international tours. Currently, there are no additional entry requirements for U.S. passport holders, but this can change at any time. Before travel, both U.S. and non-U.S. passport holders should visit our Passports & Visas page to reconfirm entry requirements.

In Dades, the accommodation is a riad. Riads are traditional multi-story Moroccan homes that have been converted into hotels. Riads do not have elevators and will require the use of stairs. In the Sahara, there is uneven and bumpy terrain. You may choose to opt out of the camel ride in the desert and stay in a restaurant or enjoy free time at the pool.

There are two long days of driving with sightseeing along the way.

THIS WAS OUR SIXTH TRIP WITH SMARTOURS. All of our guides have been outstanding. They made each vacation memorable. We had an dynamic guide Aziz who was extremely knowledgeable. Great itinerary. I highly recommend Smartours.

April S

The tour and our guide Aziz was fantastic. We also had other local guides that gave indepth information about the cities we visited.


This trip was amazing, Aziz, our tour guide made this a very memorable experience. The itinerary was superb, just the right amount of time spent in each location. Our group was 22 people, just the right size and very compatible.

Bonnie R

Loved the SmarTours Magic Moroccan adventure. We learned so much about the country, its history, culture, products, religion, people, etc. Our group of 22 got along well, and Aziz kept us moving and on track. More taxing than expected, and the weather generally uncooperative, all in all we had a fabulous time, and I would recommend this tour.

Margaret t

Morocco is a beautiful country, and there was so much to see! Really enjoyed the sights ranging from seaside into the Sahara

Brian E

another excellent SmartTours trip.

Robert R

The trip was very nice, informative, well organized, the guide was top notch. A larger bus would have been nice; we were a little cramped. Our hotels were very well run; personnel went out of their way to make us comfortable. Included meals were tasty, and vegetarian dishes were available for those who asked. This trip involved lots of walking, up and down many uneven steps, often in narrow passageways. Travelers should be in good health to enjoy the many benefits of this wonderful tour.

Marvin L

I highly recommend this tour to get a good sampling of the range of Moroccan geography, it’s people and it’s history!


We had a wonderful time touring Morocco with our exceptional guide, Mohamed (10/25/22). It's a diverse, colorful and interesting country.

Susi T

What a fantastic trip! It was very well organized and we got got to see so many different places and cultures without it being rushed. I loved the choice of hotels, beautiful and not so affordable if I booked them myself.

Smart Tours select the best guides to navigate through the history and culture of a country. So many other travelers will miss knowledge, opportunities for growth, and the eradication of myths for not pursuing Smart Tour advantages. We have no regrets for selecting Smart Tours as our guiding light in other countries.

Alice D

Morocco was fabulous. My experience was unique in that I went on this trip thinking Morocco was a 2nd world country and I was totally amazed at their modern country. They are very proud of their country and heritage. Scenery is breath-taking. The camel ride in the Sahara was the most fun I've had in years. I would definitely go back. They are so far ahead of the rest of the world in sustainable energy. Tour guides were professional and knew the history of their country and/or city. SmarTours provides great experience at reasonable prices.
