  Visiting Lisbon and Morocco in Spring is a perfect time, the season of new beginnings. Fresh buds bloom, animals awaken and the earth seems to come to life again. Farmers and gardeners plant their seeds and temperatures slowly rise . Lisbon offers a number of museums and galleries, an unpretentious atmosphere and a pleasant blend of architectural styles, making it a favourite with many visitors. Its also the perfect time to visit the Morocco Atlas Mountains, when weather conditions are relatively stable and the snow has melted  giving way to colourful spring flowers. TourCrafters combines the warmth of the market colors in Marrakesh, the sunshine, the architecture and the evenings Morocco has to offer, with the chance to explore small villages away from the usual tourist trail.
