In-Person Cultural Arts Trips 2023
We are delighted to partner with the National JCC Adult & Senior Alliance and to offer this array of exciting trips for active adults.
From seaside to mountain-top to desert, from historical sites to modern wonders, from natural to man-made beauty, with a rich history of Berbers, Arabs, Christians & Jews. Morocco has it all! Travel to this marvelous, magical North African country, so different from most Arab-dominant countries, Morocco has its own unique, fascinating culture. Explore bustling imperial cities (Fes, Meknes & Marrakech). Experience ocean-side towns (Tangier, Essaouira). Stay in a charming hillside retreat (Chefchaouen) and in the mountain region (Dades). Camp (if you like) in among the dunes at the edge of the Sahara Desert (Merzouga). Enjoy “off the tourist track” locals (Taroudant). Even stop in a nomadic home for a cup of tea.
