Marrakech, Morocco

Marrakech, Morocco
October 9 – 14, 2019

 

 

Marrakech, Morocco

Marrakech is a city steeped in history, tradition, beautiful architecture, artistic mosaic tile and incredible food. Join us for our annual journey to the land of sweet oranges, tart olives, savory lamb and mint tea. We will eat like locals, soak up the rich atmosphere of the medina, go shopping for leather and trinkets and dance as musicians play the qraqeb, bendir, and oud while palm trees sway in the evening breeze.  Perhaps you’ll charm a cobra or find the bargain of a lifetime.  Anything is possible in Marrakech!
