Is This Morocco Tour Right for You?

  • There is a lot of van travel time on this trip as the sites we visit are all vastly spread apart. The scenery does change a lot so if you’re a fan of road trips you’ll love it!
  • The summers in Morocco can very hot. If you are not accustomed to hot temperatures please consider a non-summer date.

Frequently Asked Questions

The group leader on this Morocco group tour will be a local from Morocco! His/her job is to ensure the safety and well being of everyone on the trip and to show everyone the most amazing time ever! Since there is a strong cultural component for this trip your local Moroccan group leader will also be educating you on the culture, history and customs of Morocco. Best of both worlds!

A passport is required for this Morocco group tour. It is strongly recommended that your passport have at least 6 months validity (from the time you leave Morocco) to avoid any problems. If you hold a U.S. passport you will not need a visa for entry to Morocco as long as you are not staying more than 90 days.

You will be staying in boutique, independently owned 3 star hotels (7 nights) and a desert camp (1 night) for the duration of this Morocco trip. All the hotels are clean, safe, and in great locations. In Fes and Marrakech you will stay in a riad – a traditional Moroccan house with an interior garden / courtyard that has been converted into a 3 star hotel. The sahara desert camp is a ‘glamping’ experience – tents are heated and have private bathrooms. Please note many Western travelers will find the Moroccan hotels dated in terms of infrastructure and decor.

In order to budget properly please consider the following items which are not included in this Morocco group tour:

  • Meals:  You are responsible for 4 lunches and 4 dinners. Budget around 1350 MAD for meals not included.
  • Tipping
    • Local drivers, guides and restaurant staff: Tipping is not compulsory but is an integral part of the local hospitality industry in Morocco. Therefore, we recommend budgeting around 800 MAD for these services.
    • Group leader: Tipping your group leader is completely discretionary. For outstanding service you may consider tipping your group leader ~$10/day.
  • Travel insurance: Travel insurance covering our minimum requirements ($100k+ in medical coverage including emergency evacuation) is compulsory for all participants. Budget anywhere from $50 to $130 for travel insurance (from a 3rd party) depending on your specific coverage inclusions.

The single room supplement on this Morocco group tour is $449. You will be able to select your preference for a single room supplement when filling out the application. If you are applying for this trip within 3 months of the departure please contact us for single room availability before applying.

Upon arrival in Casablanca you will be picked up and taken directly to the hotel where your group leader will be waiting for you! After getting checked-in you will have free time until around 6pm upon which you will meet the group in the lobby of the hotel. Then you will walk to a nearby spot for dinner as you begin to get to know one another! While you will not physically meet your group mates until the evening of the first day you will be in contact with everyone well ahead of time in the group WhatsApp chat and, in addition, we will provide you with everyone’s traveler bios so you’ll already know each other a little before physically meeting!

On day 3 (in Fes) and day 8 (in Marrakech) you will have the opportunity to tailor the trip to your style by selecting an optional excursion. You will be able to select the optional excursion during the application process and, after, you’ll be sent an invoice to pay.

    • Note: this excursion is in lieu of the Fes medina tour which is included in the trip price

We recommend bringing cash for this trip. The Moroccan Dirham is a closed currency which means it is only available (officially) for trade in Morocco. Therefore, you will bring USD and exchange into MAD once you arrive in Casablanca. You can also bring an ATM card on this trip as there are ATMs readily available in the major cities though withdrawal limits and transaction fees could occur.

You may bring any size luggage that you wish though we recommend packing as lite as possible since you will be traveling a lot during this trip (staying in 6 different hotels).

Yes, you will have WiFi access at all the hotels and most restaurants.

Morocco is a conservative country and, in general, does not have a vast nightlife scene. During the majority of this Morocco trip you will not be going out at night but rather hanging out in the hotels. There are some bars and clubs in Marrakech for those that would like to explore those options on your final nights. The decision to go out at night or not (in Marrakech) is completely up to you!

When you are entering a mosque or a medina (in Fes and Marrakech) you will need to dress conservatively which means shirts that cover your shoulders and pants/dresses/skirts that go below the knee. Outside of those areas you can dress as you’d like!

Arrive early and explore the Hassan II Mosque, (which boasts the tallest minaret in the world), visit the world-renowned Rick’s Cafe, or relax on the beach.

After a tour of the city (and some photo opportunities) we will grab some lunch before heading to our next stop: Volubilis. This partially excavated Berber and Roman city is considered to be the ancient capital of the kingdom of Mauretania and has been standing since the 3rd century BC! These ruins are pretty sweet! Finally, we’ll finish our journey north to our final destination: Fes.

  • Hello Fes! Considered the spiritual capital of Morocco, Fes is home to the largest Medina (and the oldest running university) in the world. We’ll begin our day with a guided tour of the Medina, the older part of the city, found in many countries of North Africa. We’ll stop by a Tannery (where hides are processed into leather) and see the Blue Gate (the tiled French gate marking the western entrance to the Medina was built in 1913 and is green on the other side) while wandering the winding alleyways filled with street food and shop owners (don’t get lost)!

 

  • After lunch you’ll have the afternoon to spend as you wish! You could visit Madrasa Bou Inania (the only still-in-use religious building that non-Muslims are allowed to enter in Fes), wander the Bou Jeloud Gardens right outside the Medina, or get your souvenir shopping game on as Fes is known for their handwoven rugs, mosaics, pottery, leather, and metal works.

  • Today is all about the beautiful Moroccan countryside as we head south to Errachidia. Half way along our drive through the beautiful Atlas Mountains we’ll stop and explore the Cèdre Gouraud Forest and perhaps be visited by some monkeys. Once we’ve finished monkeying around (get it?!) we will continue our journey south with a pit-stop in Zaida – a small town known for its meat products; follow your nose to find the best lunch spot, you really can’t go wrong! Finally, we‘ll arrive for the night in Errachidia; a city nearing the border of the Sahara.

After this delicious lunch, we’ll head to our temporary stop, Merzouga, an Oasis at the edge of the Sahara desert! Here, you’ll drop off all but the essentials and hop on a camel for a ride over the golden and glorious sand dunes of the Sahara to our destination for the night: authentic nomad Berber tents!

Our first stop is the city of Erfoud which happens to be the filming location for films such as The Mummy and Spectre. From here, we’ll drive through the idyllic landscape of Todra Gorge, a series of limestone river canyons which measure just 33 feet across in places with cliffs more than 500 feet tall on either side. After that, we’ll drive along the Dades Gorge, a valley made lush by the Dades River, which rises from the High Atlas Mountains before emptying into Morocco’s largest river, the Draa. We will end the day in the town of Ouarzazate, nicknamed The Door of the Desert and home to Morocco’s film studios.
