    After breakfast, we’ll embark on a scenic drive along the road of 1001 Kasbahs to the oasis of Tinghir. Along the way, you’ll be captivated by the stunning scenery and the remnants of fortified villages that once hosted caravan routes until the early 20th century. Upon arrival in Tinghir, a former military post during the French occupation, we’ll take a detour to the oasis. Feel free to walk beside the stream, observing locals as they farm and herd their cattle. Your walk will culminate at one of the tour’s highlights: the breathtaking Todgha Gorges. After lunch at a local café, we’ll continue to Rissani, one of Morocco's holiest towns. The current ruling dynasty, the Alaouites, originated here, and their founder is buried locally.
