Please Note:

1. The minimum age for this tour is 8.
2. Single travelers are obliged to pay Single Supplement and will have the hotel room to themselves.
3. From November 2018 we will not visit ‘Saadian Tombs’ on Day 3 but will instead visit the ‘Majorelle Gardens’ on the morning of Day 2
4. Many of Morocco’s hotels arrange a very special gala dinner with entertainment in the evening on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. Payment for these is often optional on Christmas Eve (24 Dec) but may be compulsory on New Year’s Eve (31 Dec), whether you attend or not. Prices can range from around US$50 to over US$150 per person. Final decisions on prices and whether dinners are compulsory are made relatively close to the time. We aim to always select hotels that make their Gala Dinners optional, though this is is not always possible. Gala dinner prices are therefore not included in our prices, but will be added to your booking if they become required. More information is available on request.
