Transfer from Casablanca airport (CMN) to hotel!

Day 2: Casablanca - Rabat - Meknes - Fez

Accommodation: Menzeh Fes

Enjoy a short ride along the coast to Rabat, once a lair of the corsairs and now the country’s capital. Enjoy a tour through Rabat, before continuing onto Meknes for another guided sightseeing adventure. You'll then travel east towards Fez, Morocco’s most enchanting city.

Sightseeing tour of Rabat

In Rabat, enjoy firsthand some of the most famous sights including the Royal Palace, Hassan Tower, and the Kasbah of Oudayas.

You are reminded of the time when Morocco was the Roman province of Mauretania as you visit the fine Roman Relics of Chellah and its picturesque gardens.

Guided Sightseeing Tour of Meknes

During your guided tour in Meknes, see its monumental gates, mosque, palace, and miles of protective walls. You'll visit the Royal Stables, originally built to house 12,000 royal horses!

Day 3: Fez

Enjoy a day at leisure in ancient Fez, which occupies a position of outstanding scenic beauty. Visit the exotic ancient Medina, a maze of narrow, bustling streets and alleys that are home to colorful souks - the perfect place to pick up a souvenir or perhaps tagine pot for yourself.

Day 4: Fez - Ifrane - Erfoud

Accommodation: Kasbah Tizimi

Travel today into the very heart of Morocco. Stop in the quiet, French-built alpine mountain resort of Ifrane. Verdant cedar forests give way to volcanic mountains and wind-swept plains as you motor across the Middle Atlas range.

You'll pass fortified mud-and-straw villages and descend into the spectacular Ziz Gorges. Experience diverse landscapes as you make your way by car through a stony desert before approaching Erfoud, where you'll encounter the peaceful oasis of the Ziz Valley.

Day 5: Erfoud

Today, enjoy an excursion to Rissani to see the Mausoleum of Moulay Ali Sharf, the first ruler of the Alaouite Dynasty!

Gate of Rissani

Day 6: Erfoud - The Road of a Thousand Kasbahs - Ouarzazate

Accommodation: Hotel ibis Ouarzazate Centre

Enjoy the drive through the eastern slopes of the Atlas Mountains and arrive at the Tinerhir oasis with its green valley of palms and local villages. You'll then continue on to the impressive Todra Gorge, then along the Dades Valley to the film capital of Morocco, Ouarzazate.

Day 7: Ouarzazate - Aït Benhaddou - Tizi-n-Tichka Pass - Marrakesh

Accommodation: Zalagh Kasbah Hotel

In the morning, enjoy a drive around Ouarzazate, famous for its film studios, before stopping and paying a visit to the Kasbah de Taourirt. You'll then continue to Aït Benhaddou, a kasbah famous for being used as a film location for films such as Lawrence of Arabia and Gladiator.

You'll pass through picturesque villages surrounded by craggy mountains as you make your way towards the 7,414 foot-high Tizi-n-Tichka Pass, the heart of the High Atlas Mountains. Each new twist in the road leads to a different, more dramatic landscape.

Leaving the pass behind, the landscape gradually changes to a tapestry of red ochre. Enter the gates of the red-colored imperial city of Marrakesh, one of the most fascinating Moroccan cities.

Kasbah de Taourirt

Explore the magnificent Kasbah de Taourirt, whose beauty is amplified by its Sahara Desert and mountain backdrop. The Kasbah was built in the early 19th century and used as a base for the powerful el Glaoui tribe, who controlled the caravan route through the region. Formerly considered the largest Kasbah in Morocco, it is certainly still one of the most beautiful.

Inside the Kasbahs you'll find sun-kissed buildings, multi-level towers, as well as turrets and alleys waiting to be explored.

Day 8: Marrakesh

Enjoy a sightseeing tour with a local guide today!

Guided Tour of Marrakesh

Your tour stars with an orientation drive through the city, then you will hop out and explore some of the most famous sights. You'll walk from the ancient quarters over to the fascinating Jemaa-el-fna Square, where you can experience its exotic bazaar.

You'll then continue along to the Bahia Palace, and finally the Saadian Tombs, where you’ll really feel as if you’ve stopped the march of time.

Day 9: Marrakesh - Casablanca

Accommodation: Novotel Casablanca City Center Hotel

Leave Morocco’s magical city of Marrakesh for the journey back to Casablanca. In the afternoon, embark on a tour of Casablanca, where you can see the sights in the company of a local guide.

When I booked with Great Value I was nervous because it seemed too good to be true. Nope, just a really great deal. I was able to take my dream trip to Ireland and Scotland and it was within my budget. Everything was covered, my lodging, flights, and rental car. There was no hidden fees, or fine print that would nickel and dime me later on, as "good deals" usually have. I also had to change the date of my trip and the customer service was excellent and this change was simple. Thank you Great Value, I'll be using you every time I travel from now on

Everything on the trip was excellent. The only concern with any services from GVV was initial communications ahead of the trip regarding when and how we'd receive all our travel vouchers, as some were available online, and some were to be picked up in country upon arrival. It took no less than 5 phone calls to learn some vouchers would be picked up in country. The trip was outstanding, exhausting, but gloriously beautiful. It was exhausting from the perspective of moving around the country and only a few places were 2 nights. But, we knew that going in, and we wanted to see ALL of Switzerland and this certainly checked those boxes. We saw majestic mountains, we saw countless waterfalls and glaciers. The trains in Switzerland were all clean and we felt safe. The hotels were good with delicious breakfasts each morning. Overall, I would recommend GVV to a friend or family member and I would personally book another vacation with GVV.

This was my first time planning a trip out of the country. I read previous reviews who had a good experience with Great Value Vacation. Our trip was amazing! The booking and reservations were easy to use with the vouchers provided. The staff was helpful. The only downside was I upgraded to have an automatic vehicle and they gave me a stick shift. It took a while to get sorted out but other than that I loved my trip! I will definitely use great value vacations again when I book my next trip. I opted for the additional wine tasting package and I did not regret it! I recommend adding those additional tours to get a more complete experience.

My wife and I recently booked our vacation through Great Value Vacations. We were a bit nervous to travel to Europe for the first time, but we are glad we did. Great Value Vacations took care of us. Great customer service. Seamless transactions. They booked the hotels and flights for us. All we had to worry about were the daily activities! I would highly recommended them. The hotels offered through the package were as advertised: nice and in great locations. The flights times were also convenient. The best part was the price. I am thankful for the experiences Great Value Vacation was able to provide for us!

Really enjoyed both of my trips through Great Value Vacations. I went on one family trip to Ireland (Adare villa, rental car with trips out to Dublin, Cliffs of Moher and more) . The villa was very comfortable with a kitchen, three bedrooms, and proximity to the local shops /restaurants. We were able to upgrade to an automatic car and had fun navigating to each location on our itinerary. The trip as planned by the agency still leaves time for exploring on your own and since we picked a trip with our own transportation, we had flexibility on which tours we wanted to do and when.

My second trip was a solo trip to Scotland. I like to go on vacation by myself sometimes, but it can be hard to find ones where you aren’t penalized for being on your own. This train trip to Edinburgh, Inverness, and Glasgow worked out really well for me. The hotels were all near the train stations and in safe areas (good lighting, plenty of people, etc.). I got a good mix of options for sightseeing in each city. The hop-on, hop-off bus circuit was especially useful for getting around Edinburgh. I also added an extra tour on in Glasgow to see nearby castles and a distillery and was very glad to have done so as the views of the countryside were amazing!

Summary: Have enjoyed my previous experiences and would definitely use again

Just got back from our trip to Italy booked through Great Value Vacations & was our dream come true! We could not have gone if it were not for their unbelievable rates. Each 4 Star Villa we stayed at was above and beyond our expectations...I cried after leaving each part of our journey. I am so glad I took a leap of faith and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND booking with them. Besides the Villas being beautiful, great locations, clean, and great staff; each place we arrived at actually said, "They said to give you a very nice room." (with a rate of just under $1,900 a piece for 9 nights not counting travel days at 4 stars Villas in Rome, Tuscany, & Venice including airfare and rent a car... a few friends told us to expect the worst rooms at the places we were staying ~ NOT the case! Our rooms had the best views...I could go on and on. Every step of the way was smooth with no worries whatsoever. Thanks again GVV! LOVED IT!
