Activity code: MORJ05

START - Tangier / FINISH - Agadir
This particular itinerary is a quite unique "Top to Bottom" journey along Morocco's incredibly beautiful Atlantic coast. The route includes travelling between Tangier and Agadir via Asilah, Rabat, Casablanca, El Jadida and Essaouira with the opportunity to travel inland at any time and even continue further south to the undiscovered coast south of Agadir, e.g. Mirleft. With our many years of experience putting together practical and interesting itineraries for our clients we would like to recommend this journey for you to make the most of your time in this fascinating country.
We have great pleasure in offering you the opportunity to experience Morocco accompanied by one of our excellent team of English-speaking drivers as a private chauffeur and ad hoc guide.
Travelling with one of our friendly English-speaking drivers allows you to experience much more of the country and its people. Your driver will gladly discuss both your daily schedule and general matters about Morocco and the places you pass; he can arrange local guides or co-ordinate any itinerary of pre-booked sightseeing that we arrange with you beforehand. In addition to your driver's experience and knowledge during your holiday we have also driven extensively around Morocco and will be happy to share our experiences with you if you are at all unsure about your chosen route or any aspect of travelling with one of our drivers.
NB: This itinerary includes the services of one of our English-Speaking drivers. They will drive any type of vehicle within their daily rate which also includes your driver's food and lodging.
Hotels are personal suggestions but there is usually a choice of styles and budget at each location. We are, of course, also able to tailor-make a holiday to suit your requirements for any or all of the following - UK departure airport, budget, hotel type/size, duration, activities, etc.
With our excellent prices for car rental, Morocco has opened up to some quite unique holiday experiences. Roads around the country are improving and are actually pretty good in most places, even in the mountains and desert areas they are now mostly asphalted. We have all driven extensively around Morocco and will be happy to share our experiences with you if you are at all unsure about your chosen routes.
