Fez

We say farewell to Fez and her many traditions and head to perhaps the most famous city in the country – Marrakech. This evening, see exactly why they call Marrakech the Red City.

Marrakech

We've made it to Marrakech, a place of pretty architecture, a bustling medina and shopping opportunities galore. This place is fast, fun and exciting, in every possible way. On arrival you could head to Jamaa el Fna Square to rub shoulders with the locals and grab some eats on the run. One place to get 'the shot' is from a restaurant overlooking the Medina, the smoky atmosphere, local music and people bustling under the twinkling lights, is something you'll never forget. And you won’t forget tonight’s accommodation in a hurry, either. Our Special Stay in Marrakech is Riad Africa, a retreat formed from 3 historical merchant houses. Here we’ll enjoy two swimming pools, a traditional spa, a rooftop restaurant and Morroccan cooking school, not to mention the gorgeous architecture and decor. Tomorrow, exploring galore awaits.

Stay

DAY 8 - Marrakech

Marrakech

We'll guide you around the city's hotspots with our local Morroccan guide leading the charge. On our hitlist this morning is a berber pharmacy to pick up some argan oil and other exotic potions and lotions,  then free time is yours. Taking on the markets of the Medina like a boss is a must while you're here, and an unforgettable experience. It's here you'll pick up treats and treasures, stopping for tagines to re-fuel but of course. Looking for a little bit of culture? The Marjorelle Gardens, owned by Yves St Laurent are a slice of paradise in amongst the madness, with the electric blues and yellow colours and lush green plants making for A+ Instagram opportunities. Tonight, getting your eat on is a must, and our optional feast and show is the best way to do just that as you indluge in tagines, cous cous and lip smacking desserts that guarantee you'll be rolling out of there but travellers, the night is young!

DAY 9 - Marrakech to Tangier via Casablanca and Rabat

Marrakech

The intoxicating beauty and mayhem of Marrakech should have us well and truly hooked on all things Morocco. With this new found love we'll head north to Tangier, exploring the West Coast along the way.  

Casablanca

In the few hours drive from Marrakech to Casablanca, we suggest you fire up the iPad and watch the 1942 black and white classic that helped the world fall in love with this city. The seaside masterpiece of the Hassan II Mosque & tree shaded cafes with very legitimate tea will help you craft your own Casablanca love story. 

Rabat

The political and administrative capital of Morocco, Rabat is a manicured city of palm trees and desert like architecture. We'll stop off, take it all in, then carry on to our next exotic stop - the thoroughfare between Europe and Africa. 
 

Tangier

Just 20-minutes to the Spanish port of Gibraltar, Tangier is so close yet so culturally far from neighboring Europe. Absorb your last night of North African exoticism, enjoying every minute of this other-worldly city.

Explore this passionate city known for its heritage of art and culture, visit the famous attractions, enjoy the 13th Century architecture and the world's biggest cathedral. Home of flamenco, enjoy a night of dance with the fun loving, laid back locals. Surely a night to remember! 

Gibraltar

With an English rock (aptly named the Rock of Gibraltar), this English colony can be explored on an optional tour of the rock with our guide, where you'll see the far reaching landscapes, as well as get up close to the cheekier residents, monkeys or Barbary Apes if you're wanting to keep it official! Just try and make sure they don't steal your hat. Visit St. Michael's Caves, and the 'Den' but the views are the jewel in the crown. Utter bliss.

Seville

Now that we're settled into the smooth sailing slow paced vibes of Seville, let's not go ruining things by rushing around. A full free day to explore is just what you need, and a full free day is what you shall have. To make the most of it, you could sign up for our optional guided walking tour of Seville, passing by the Plaza Espana & through Santa Cruz (the Old Jewish Quarter) and gawping at the intricate exteriors of the Cathedral and Alcazar (while also mentally ticking off a Game of Thrones filming location), before cutting yourself loose to explore at your own pace. This evening you can opt in for our Eat With Seville experience, tasting traditional specialties cooked by locals in their own homes. Nothing like a bit of authenticity to round off our last night in Spain.

Seville

So long for now, Spain! We'll be kicking it in Portugal for a couple of days before we drift back your way for our grand finale in Madrid. Tough life innit?! Crossing the border, spirits are high as we cruise along the Algarve, where Portuguese tarts await us, and more about that tomorrow. 

Lisbon

Welcome to yet another example of incredible Europe...how these countries can sit so geographically close yet be so distinctly different is beyond our comprehension. Vintage looking trams roll down pretty streets, and tiny intricate tiles make everything gloriously cute. Today we'll get guided around the city and check out all the hotspots, like Portugal's Christo Rei (Christ the Redeemer), Rossio Square where people watching is premium, the Belem District, home to the famous tower of the same name, and feel some Moorish vibes at a monastery where Vasco de Gama's tomb is held. Afterwards we'll take to the streets for some food and a night out with the squad, no doubt feeling pumped for exploring tomorrow.

Lisbon

This morning you can choose to visit Sintra and Cascais, two local towns where packing your swimmers for a dip is essential. If you haven't already fallen in love then here's more of a picture about what's in store for you global roamers. Ruins with a  throwback to Moorish and Roman times, cute domed cathedrals, plazas lined with sunny cafes and grand squares where stopping for drinks and peri peri chicken along the way is essential. Those looking for local vibes will fall head over heels for bohemian bars and riverside clubs,  and plenty of cute boutiques for those feeling an itch for spending. Wrap things up by tasting the city over a traditional Portuguese dinner packed with seafood.

Lisbon

Our last full day on tour, last chance for some final Pastel de nata (those Portuguese egg tart pastry's we have no doubt come to know and love). Save the sadness for tomorrow, today we take the scenic journey back to Madrid for one final evening of mischief. 

Madrid

Here we are, back where the party started 14 life-changing days ago. A traditional Madridlenos dinner is up for grabs this evening, a final salute to the culture filled extravaganza that has been our epic journey. We're talking fried squid, chorizo, Spanish tortillas...and that's just the start. All washed down with some wine, all in the name of culture of course!
