The Magic of Morocco 2024

Beautiful riads, rich culture, bustling medinas: Morocco has a dash of magic around every corner. 

In 2024, The Getaway Co. will embark on our second journey through arguably the world’s sparkliest country, this time with vegan lifestyle expert, Lauren Toyota from hot for food! 

Throughout our week-long holiday experience, highlights include: a visit to a traditional village near the Atlas Mountains, dinner with a local family, music and dinner under the stars in the Agafay desert and a trip to a donkey sanctuary. We’ll also venture west from Marrakech all the way to the coast to take in the fresh air of Essaouira, where we’ll enjoy a guided tour of the winding souks. 

And of course we’ll have ample opportunity to talk and learn about vegan food! Lauren Toyota will walk us through the creation of one of her recipes from her endless repertoire of fabulous vegan delights, and we’ll cook a traditional vegan dinner on our closing night in a Riad in the Marrakech Medina! 

As always, there will also be free time at the stunning Riad and Villa Le Perroquet Bleu (The Blue Parrot) which we’ll have all to ourselves to rest, relax by the pool, connect and enjoy. So sign up now and can’t wait to see you in magical Marrakech.
