The sight of El Medik’s golden beaches may tempt you to relax and indulge in the Mediterranean sunshine. However, for your first experience of Morocco at its most authentic, be sure to take the short tour to Tétouan; there’s an air of proud tradition, heritage and culture amongst this UNESCO-listed town’s unspoilt ancient medina that is simply captivating. Speaking of traditions and heritage, a visit to Agadir is a chance to explore Souk El Had and try local flavours of mint tea, fruits and spices; and even learn about how Argan Oil is made, meeting the ladies who crush the nuts from endemic argan trees. Agadir is also your gateway to the Atlas Mountains; on tour, you could trek the foothills and witness some of Morocco’s most magnificent scenery too.[ReadMoreDesk]

An overnight stay in Casablanca affords you plenty of time to uncover the many world-renowned sites of this charming city; or perhaps tour to magical Marrakech for bustling souks, prestigious religious monuments and the famous Medina, alive with energetic markets, street food vendors, artists and all manner of performers. If you choose to stay in Casablanca, you could marvel at the sight of the majestic Hassan II Mosque, and enjoy flavoursome Tagine cuisine. Finally, there’s Tangier where a city of soaring minarets and domes, a legendary Kasbah – once the sultan's walled palace and gardens – and animated souks will make a lasting impression too; you’re sure to have a lifetime of memories to savour from your time in Morocco.
