Sightseeing with Erlebnis Tours
Whatever else you do on your trip to Morocco, make sure you make plenty of time for sightseeing this beautiful country. Morocco is a country full of diversity - snow-capped mountains, ancient pink and red fortress cities, green fertile valleys, limitless expanses of shifting desert and spectacular sandy beaches. There is, of course, an infinite number of touring routes and excursions throughout Morocco that can be contrived, and the section "Places to Visit" in the menu on the left should help in the planning of a suitable itinerary. Below, however, are lists of must-see excursions and routes, that have proved very popular. You can also find a selection of popular tours on our Prices page.
Of course, Erlebnis Tours will take you sightseeing in style, each tour with a personal guide. We own a fleet of minibuses, 4x4s and Mercedes saloons at your disposal. All are in showroom condition, fully insured and come complete with air conditioning. The minibuses are cool, comfortable and luxurious, perfect for long trips. The 4x4s are ideal for rougher terrain, such as the desert, but for the ultimate luxury, the Mercedes saloon is perfect for sightseeing around the towns and cities in style. Of course, since Erlebnis Tours only provides personal tours, you won't be sharing your vehicle with anyone outside of your party - the vehicle and driver are yours for as long as you want them.
Sightseeing in the Cities
The great imperial cities all glory in vestiges of their splendid past. The ornate gateways (babs) into the walled medinas and the decorated towers (minarets) of the mosques are impossible to miss. Unfortunately, nearly all mosques and many zaouias (the centres of a saint's cult) are closed to non-muslims.
The kasbahs are worth a visit and the shade of luxuriant gardens usually a relief after a few hours' heavy sightseeing. Palaces and mansions in many cities have been converted to luxurious hotels, or to galleries and museums. It's usually possible to visit a mausoleum or medersa (once lodging houses for students at the mosque-universities), which are often elaborately decorated. Officially-run monuments charge 5-10 Dirhams per person; smaller sights and medersa are supervised by a gardien, who will expect a tip of a couple of Dirhams.
The really unmissable Imperial City monuments are:
