Highlights

Exotic Morocco Every day is another huge highlight day on this special newly designed tour and cruise. You are going to love every minute, but most of all you’re going to love Morocco! There isn’t room to share how exciting and wonderful Morocco is. The Tyndall family, who owns Fun For Less Tours, crossed from Spain to Morocco by ferry for their inspection tour of Morocco. Upon arrival, they found a driver of a van and hired him off the street to take them all over Morocco. Hiring a stranger off the streets in Tangier, Morocco, to drive your family for several days throughout Morocco, is not what we recommend for our passengers to do. But for the Tyndall family, it was the best way to explore and experience everything in Morocco.  Because of the movie Casablanca, it may be the most famous city in Morocco, but the best of the best can be found in Marrakesh. You are going to love the medieval walled city that makes up part of Marrakesh AND you will never forget the carnival-like atmosphere of Marrakesh at night. The huge square becomes a gigantic flea market – filled with numerous sellers of wares, street performers, fortune tellers and snake charmers playing a pungi (their wind instrument) to their cobras. This will be a highlight you will remember forever! We also visit the impressive mountains near Marrakesh in 4-wheel drive vehicles.
