The beach is in front of the Medina and there are plenty of cafés with terraces, both ideal for relaxing for a few hours. Blue doors and window frames abound as do the artists’ shops – buy a carpet or Thuya wood carving or sit on the beach sipping a mint tea as the sun sets.

Nomadic School Tours Reviews from Schools!
"Excellent school tour with Nomadic, 42 students and staff had a superb time exploring Morocco. Sahara in April was great, mild evenings, hot afternoons, even time for a Morocco versus UK football match. Next time, we'll bring a ball! Good food, excellent hosts - happy days! Thanks again, same time next year Bedales School, Geography Department.

"We had a fantastic week in Morocco with Nomadic during October half-term. From start to finish our experience was excellent. Mark made the booking process very simple and he was always on hand to answer questions quickly and efficiently. When we arrived in Marrakech we were met by our guide Mohammed, who was very friendly, knowledgeable and looked after us very well. He went out of his way to ensure we had a good time- adding the tannery in to the tour of Marrakech at my request, a stop at the Argon oil co-operative and even arranged for a personalized birthday cake for one of our students. The highlight of the trip for the students was the camel trek into the Sahara Desert and then sleeping out under the stars in the Berber village. An amazing experience. There was a lot of driving involved, but if you want to go to the desert then it is a necessity. The hotels were all comfortable, clean and had Wi-Fi. The food was good and plentiful. I would certainly recommend Nomadic for a school trip. "

"The staff and students of Langley school had an incredible time in Morocco with Nomadic. From the moment we landed in Marrakech the tour was brilliantly organised, and our guides were absolutely lovely. Many of our students experienced sights, sounds, tastes (and smells) that they had never before encountered; from the ancient farming practices in the Gorge du Dades and spectacular rock formations in the Draa valley to the snake charmers in the Djemâa-el-Fna and trekking into the dunes of the mighty Sahara on camel. Our week was intense, exhausting, magical and unforgettable. There were even tears at the airport when we had to leave! Thank you Nomadic for an incredible experience - we will definitely return!"

"Nomadic were brilliant on our recent School trip to Morocco. The guides knew their stuff and engaged with the pupils. The itinerary allowed us to sample a large amount of Moroccan culture in a short space of time. "
