Trip Details

To travel in Morocco is to move from one era of history to another as you experience a culture that fuses indigenous Berber traditions with Arab, Jewish, Andalusian, and other European influences. Explore the beauty of Rabat, Casablanca, Fez, and Marrakech and the peaceful expanse of the Agafay desert as we journey through this alluring land and learn from its people.

This rich program includes numerous exclusive meetings that will provide an in-depth understanding of political and social issues that are central to Morocco today while immersing you in the country’s stunning landscape, colorful bazaars, artisan traditions, and intriguing villages and cities.
