Newmarket Holidays launches two new tours

Newmarket Holidays has rolled out two tours to Morocco and Spain & Portugal.

The new tours are ‘Imperial Cities of Morocco & the Sahara Desert’ and ‘Paradors & Pousadas of Spain & Portugal’, the latter of which offers stays in historic hotels.

Imperial Cities of Morocco & the Sahara Desert – nine days across Morocco, the Sahara Desert and the Atlas Mountains. Fares start from £1,492 pp, saving £263 (including breakfast, one lunch, eight dinners, tours and return flights from Gatwick). Departures range from May 2024 to December 2025.

Guests can explore the ancient cities of Marrakesh, Rabat and Fes, as well as the world’s largest mosque and tallest minaret. The next stop will be Erfoud, Gateway to the Sahara for a driving experience through the Merzouga dunes, followed by two days at the High Atlas Mountains to see limestone canyons or ‘wadi’, Dades Valley and eat lunch with a local Berber family. 

Parados & Pousadas of Spain and Portugal – eight days with accommodation in a series of hand-picked historic hotels. Fares start from £1,757pp, saving £92 (including bed and breakfast, city tours, transfers and return flights from airports across the UK). Departures range from June to October 2024.

Starting in Lisbon, visitors can find the brightly coloured castle of Sintra and experience the haunting sounds of the city’s native Fado music. The Algarve offers local villages, markets and mountains “away from the usual tourist trail”. The tour then crosses over to Spain, with a stop in Seville. Guests will see the whitewashed villages of Cadiz, as well as Ronda’s new and old towns built on either side of the El Tajo Gorge.
