“I have been fortunate to enjoy four trips with Doctors-on-Tour since 2009 - to Ecuador, Vietnam/Cambodia/Laos, India and Bali. All these tours were wonderful. Well-organized, excellent accommodations, top notch guides, remarkable CME experiences that broaden one's outlook on medicine and really great leaders of the tours. You should seriously consider taking one of these exotic trips. Beats lying on a beach!”

Introducing Morocco...

...Get to know the vibrant culture and spectacular colorful backdrops that are distinctively Morocco. See the highlights of Rabat, the capital city and explore Fes, one of the holiest cities in the world, on a walking tour in the Medina, where donkeys and mules laden with goods still walk the ancient market. Drive through the scenic Atlas Mountains with its cedar forests on your way to Merzouga for a unique overnight at a desert camp in the Sahara Desert. Travel the rugged “Road of a Thousand Kasbahs” to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Ait Ben Haddou, the location for many famous movies such as “Jewel of the Nile” and “Gladiator”. Roam the souks (Moroccan markets) for that perfect souvenir in Marrakech, wander the whitewashed ramparts in the coastal resort of Essaouira and end in Casablanca with dinner at Rick’s Café made famous by Bogart. Experience Morocco's deep history, unique atmosphere and welcoming people on an unforgettable journey...
