Morocco Travel, Holiday Vacation to Morocco’s Kasbahs, Ruins & Waterfalls – Your Morocco Travel Guide

Morocco is a first class destination in North Africa for those who are interested in a Morocco Travel adventure. Morocco’s shear wealth of Kasbahs, Ruins and Waterfalls make it one of the most attractive places to vacation for a short break or long holiday. When traveling to Morocco for the first time, there are many options to consider such as a Morocco private tailor made tour, a group tour, budget Morocco travel or Morocco luxury travel. Whatever option you choose you are guaranteed to have a unique and majestic Moroccan adventure travel experience.

Have you imagined Morocco as being a dream vacation or a once in a lifetime dream destination? If so, then now is the time to embark on a Morocco Travel experience! Many Americans who are interested in a Morocco Travel vacation do not realize that Morocco’s hub and economic capital, Casablanca, is only 7 ½ hours from New York City. The advantage of travel to Morocco by plan from New York City is you can start your Morocco Travel vacation in the evening, taking off from JFK airport directly from Terminal 1 and land in Casablanca, Morocco’s airport at Terminal 2 the next morning.


The combination of ease of travel to Morocco by plane and the opportunity to visit special places in Morocco with varied landscapes from Kasbahs, to Ruins, and Waterfalls as well as the Sahara Desert, make Morocco a premier travel destination in North Africa. The best way to see Morocco is through a private tailor made tour. A private tailor made tour to Morocco will enable you to have a real Morocco Travel experience that allows you to engage “up close” with the people of Morocco.

Morocco’s rich heritage of Arabs and Berbers living side by side for hundreds of years with foreigners of all religions, races and creeds has enabled Morocco’s tourism industry to expand during the rent 10 years. Morocco now offers a wider array of travel opportunities for both the first time traveler to Morocco and those who have traveled to Morocco before.


A Holiday Vacation to Morocco’s Kasbahs, Ruins & Waterfalls is an enchanting way to discover the Maghreb. In just 9 days and 8 nights you can experience a visit to Marrakech’s old city, the famous Djemma el Fna Square, the 12th century Koutouba Mosque, the Tiskwin Museum of Art, the Majorelle Garden and still have time for shopping for Berber carpets, silver jewelry in the old medina PLUS embark on an evening to the Chez Allez Fantasia show in Marrakech’s Palmary.


In addition to being able to visit Marrakech on your 9-day and 8 night Morocco adventure, private tailor made tour you can also see the Cascades D’Ouzoud Waterfalls, which is one of the most spectacular sites in Morocco. The Cascades D’Ouzoud is a plush green valley with beautiful waterfalls nestled inside, has a Berber village and Gorges.

The Cascades D’Ouzoud is just the beginning as your Morocco travel vacation will take you to Beni Mellal’s Aïn Asserdoun Springs (eyes of the mule) located in the Middle Atlas Mountains and the waterfalls of Oum er Rbia in the city of Khenifra.


During your Morocco Travel journey you also visit the Ait Benhaddou (a UNESCO World Heritage site) Kasbah, Kasbah Taourirt and Tifoultoute located within the town of Ouarzazate. Ouarzazate is the door to the Sahara desert (translation “quiet”) and truly boasts some of the most beautiful Moroccan scenery of stained desert orange architecture and Atlas Mountain views. Many claim to “see Ouarzazate or die” as this Saharan Desert town is a simply breathtaking part of Southern Morocco. Ouarzazate is just 4 ½ hours from Marrakech and 2 hours from the Todra Gorge (Gorge of Todra) and will enable you to travel by 4×4 to visit the Gorge, the picturesque village of Tamtattouchte, Mount Mgoun and other areas connected to the Draa Valley.

On of the last stops on your Morocco tailor made tour after the Todra Gorge will be to return to Ouarzazate and explore the Atlas Film Studios where Hollywood’s most exciting films Cleopatra, Bertolucci’s Sheltering Sky, Scorsese’s Kundun, Gillies MacKannon’s Hideous Kinky, Ridley Scott’s Gladiator, Black Hawke Down, Oliver Stone’s Alexander The Great, Ridley Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven, and Penelope Cruz’s Saharawere shot.

You will then end your Morocco Travel Tour of Kasbahs, Ruins and Waterfalls by taking the Tizi-N-Tichka Pass Road along the route from Ouarzazate to Marrakesh. On the return Morocco journey to Marrakesh you will see panoramic views of the High Atlas Mountains as well as sights of fertile valleys, blue and red colored pise villages and other striking mineral environments. The higher up you drive you will notice the mountains becoming more rounded and the crops turning into bare red soil.  Whatever the season, a Morocco Travel vacation to Kasbahs, Ruins and Waterfalls is one of the best ways to discover the real Morocco.
