“Want to visit Marrakesh, Fez, Essaouira, Chefchaouen, Atlas Mountains. No camel ride necessary but day trip to desert ok. We are parents (in 70s) with daughter and her partner. Interested in art, food, nature, history. We fly in and out of Casablanca but don’t need to spend time there.”

Summary of the trip planning conversation
It is very nice to hear from you and to learn that you are interested in a trip to Morocco with yourselves and family. You would certainly be amazed by what you would see and experience in this spectacular country. It would be excellent to work together to develop you ideal trip for the four of you.
My name is Larbi and I am a Moroccan, born and bred. I have been working in tourism services for 18 years now. I know my country very well and can readily assist you in developing an ideal tour. You can read more about me in my Profile.
It is very good that you have provided me with a list of places that you wish to see and experience; no camel riding is noted!
I note that you will arrive into and depart from Casablanca. To get the ball rolling, here is a suggested "first attempt" itinerary outline for you to consider.
Day 1 Arrive into Casablanca
Day 2 Casablanca in the morning (if you wish) and then to Chefchaouen (you can always go directly to Chefchaouen after breakfast if you wish)
Day 3 Chefchaouen
Day 4 Chefchaouen to Fes via Meknes and Volubils
Day 5 Fes
Day 6 Fes to Merzouga (Sahara) - no camel rides! (but great to see the desert and Erg Chebbi)
Day 7 Merzouga - Todra Gorge - Dades Valley and Ouarzazate
Day 8 Ouarzazate, Ait Benhaddou Kasbah and Marrakech
Day 9 In Marrakech
Day 10 EITHER Marrakech in the morning and then travel to Casablanca OR direct to Casablanca
Day 11 Departure day from Casablanca Airport
How does that sound? I very much hope that this appeals. However, it is just a starter suggestion. Please give me your thoughts on it and what else/other you might wish to have in your trip. Much can be adjusted.
I am looking forward to learning your thoughts on the above and how, hopefully, you would like to advance you tour planning with Anzal Tours.
Once we have the framework for you ideal tour's itinerary then I can prepare a bespoke and much more informative Trip Plan.
Many thanks for your inquiry, it is very much appreciated. I hope we can work together to create a very special and memorable tour for you all.
Hear from you.
Kind regards, Larbi
