Day 3 Fes

First: a medina walking tour. After an included lunch, we’ll make a stop at a Moroccan must-see: a carpet
cooperative, where Fes’ artistic heritage is woven into vivid rugs. We’ll sample a mint tea here before moving on to a ceramic cooperative. The rest of the evening will be yours. (B,L)

Day 4 Fes - Ifrane - Midelt - Errachidia

Today we’ll move on to Ifrane in the Middle Atlas mountains. Here, we’ll venture into the cedar forest, which is famous for its resident Barbary apes and its views over the mountain valleys. After an included lunch in Midelt, we’ll make tracks to Errachidia. (B,L)

Our first stop today will be Rissani, where we’ll be treated to a walking tour and included lunch. The dish of the day will be madfouna, an oven cooked local speciality. Afterwards, we’ll venture into the desert in a four-wheel drive, where our camp in Merzouga awaits. Tonight’s dinner will come in the form of a Berber feast, complete with a traditional dance display. (B,L,D)

Day 6 Merzouga - Tinghir - Dades Gorge 

After breakfast, we’ll move on to the limestone canyons of Todra Gorge, and then on to Tinghir. Our final stop of the day will be the dramatic Dadès Gorge. (B,L,D

Day 8 Aït Benhaddou

This morning we’ll roll up our sleeves for a cooking class. After a local expert has revealed the secrets behind cooking the perfect tagine, we’ll attempt the recipe for ourselves – with a chance to taste the fruits o our labour, of course. This evening we’ll take some time to relax back at the riad. (B,L)

This morning, there’s a photo stop at Aït Benhaddou Castle on the cards. Then, it’s onwards to Marrakech via the famous Tizi n’Tichka mountain pass. We’ll toast the end of our adventure with an included dinner this evening. (B,D)

Why Back-Roads Touring?

Smaller groups of up to 18

With a maximum group size of 18 people on Europe tours (22 on French barge tours) and 14 people on Asia tours, Back Roads pride themselves on ensuring that each guest has a personalised holiday experience.

Mini-Coaches

On the vast majority of tours we travel by Mercedes or Mercedes Vito mini-coaches, equipped with comfortable seats, air-conditioning and large windows for enjoying the view. With the flexibility to go anywhere a car can, we take the smaller roads through beautiful scenery and get right to the heart of tiny villages and buzzing cities.
Along the way, your Tour Leader can offer intriguing insights about the views we see over the onboard PA system. And, with long drives kept to a minimum, you’ll have plenty of time to stretch your legs and explore sites for yourself.

Scenic back roads not motorways

Winding country lanes. Coastal beauty spots. Breathtaking mountain passes. With luxury mini-coaches that take us along scenic roads beyond the reach of large vehicles, the journey is as much a part of the adventure as the destination.

Authentic Local Experiences

Truly getting to know a destination means stepping off the typical tourist trail. From hidden-gem attractions to local favourites, we take time to seek out genuine experiences that take you to the heart of each spectacular region.

Culinary Discoveries

One of the most enjoyable ways to experience a different culture is to sample the cuisine. From visits to local producers to food and wine tastings and even cooking lessons, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to discover new flavours.

Hand Picked Boutique Accommodation

Whether it’s a classic country inn or an elegant chateau, each day’s journey ends in a hotel with plenty of character. We opt for accommodation that reflects the personality of the local area, and fits right in with its surroundings.

Leisurely Paced Travel

Forget sunrise starts and long days hopping on and off the bus. We rarely leave before 8.30am and give each stop the attention it deserves – keeping long drives to a minimum. And giving you plenty of time to explore at your own pace.
