Fez, the best surviving example of an ancient Arab city, is comprised of the “new” city, established in the 12th century, and the 2,000-year-old medina, where donkeys and mules laden with goods still trawl alongside buyers through the ancient market, itself a fascinating maze of lanes, blind alleys and bustling souqs assaulting the senses with spices and exotic delicacies.

  1. Oh, I want to go tomorrow, I can’t believe how gorgeous this sounds. Marrakech with its donkey carts and jasmine trimmed roads, excursions to Tombs, and a cooking class. I may never leave! On to the Atlas Mountains and enjoying the pottery and chrystals. Camel rides to the edge of the dunes and into the holy Mecca and finishing in Casablanca, How romantic.

    This is a truly memorable trip and perfect as it is all you can modify it. Between $2300 and $6000 US for memories for a lifetime. Awesome. My family of 4 would be taking this trip with you very soon.
