Arrive into Marrakesh and settle in to your riad in the medina for three nights. You'll have a Food Tasting tour this evening, ending in the main Jemaa El Fnaa plaza for dinner.

This morning a local guide will take you on a Classic Marrakesh city tour to explore the main sights, then your afternoon is at leisure to haggle in the souks or relax by the pool.
Day 3
Today you have a full day trip into the Atlas Mountains where you'll have stunning views, meet a local Berber family, learn about their traditions, eat some authentic food, and go on a leisurely walk in the valley.
Day 4
Transfer to Ait Ben Haddou in the Oasis region for two nights. Explore the handicraft markets in town, and visit the UNESCO World Heritage Kasbah at sunset (sure to please any Games of Thrones fans as it was filmed here).

Day 8
Day at leisure - this town is a prime surf spot and equipment, or lessons can be arranged locally. There is also horse riding, camel riding, and cooking classes, or you can simply chill by the pool.

Everything we do is tailor-made; our itineraries are just suggestions to give you an idea of what is possible. Please contact us so we can tailor the perfect holiday exclusively for you.

This itinerary will allow your family to take in some of the best bits of the country through city sightseeing and the colourful chaos of Marrakesh, authentic Berber culture in the Atlas Mountains, ancient crumbling kasbahs in the Oases, the stunning Agafay stone desert, and finally the charming fishing town of Essaouira.

As Morocco is a mere three and a half hour flight from London, and all of these locations being within a few hours’ driving distance of each other, we really believe that Morocco is an ideal destination for travel with teenagers. There’s so much at every turn to keep all members of the family entertained, and it will also open the kids’ eyes to new cultures and ways of life. This itinerary keeps things flexible – you can keep an adrenaline junkie teen happy while equally pleasing those who love the pool-side so that everyone can do what they want, whenever they feel like it. All within the space of a half-term break!

3 nights Marrakesh – 2 nights Ouarzazate – 1 night Agafay – 2 nights Essaouira
