Educational Enrichment

Cultural touring in Morocco can act as a living classroom, helping children to learn not only about the rich history of the country, but also about different cultures, religions, and food. Travelling young also helps to build confidence and an understanding of different cultures and ways of life. Our guided group tours in Morocco introduce children and adults alike to historical sites including the ancient city of Marrakesh, the Roman ruins of Volubilis, and the medieval medina of Fes, for a fun and hands on learning experience.

Making new friends

A Morocco family holiday with On The Go Tours provides a unique opportunity for children to interact with other kids from diverse backgrounds. Our travelers come from across the English-speaking world and children have the chance to develop friendships with other like-minded kids from Australia, the USA, UK, South Africa and elsewhere. Through shared experiences, they can build lasting friendships, fostering a sense of camaraderie. And this all applies to parents, too! Immersing children in Moroccan culture, whether through meeting local families, participating in traditional activities, or trying local cuisine, can also create memories and friendships that extend beyond the duration of the tour.

Hassle-Free Guided Sightseeing

Travelling with children can be tricky, and sometimes it can be tempting to either stay at home altogether or travel to an all-inclusive resort and spend a week sitting by the pool. But our group tours allow you to get out and see the world, whilst still enjoying a relaxing vacation and keeping the kids entertained. Our group tours are escorted by expert guides who are well-versed in the local culture and history. This ensures a hassle-free experience for parents, allowing them to focus on enjoying the journey rather than worrying about logistics. Guided sightseeing also means that families can explore the iconic attractions with ease, maximizing their time and avoiding stress. No queuing in the sun for tickets, no trying to hail a taxi in an unfamiliar language, no getting lost with the kids on the way to the hotel. We handle it all for you!

Inclusive Transportation

One of the conveniences of family group tours is the inclusion of transportation services. Navigating a foreign country's transportation system with children can be daunting, but with a guided tour, parents can relax knowing that transportation is taken care of. This can include comfortable buses, trains, or even domestic flights, making the journey seamless and stress-free for both parents and children. All transportation (excluding external flights and departure transfers) is included with our Morocco family tours. We even pick you up from the airport at the beginning of your trip!

Moreover, having a knowledgeable guide alongside every step of the way is reassuring for parents, as they can rely on their expertise to navigate unfamiliar environments and provide assistance in case of any unforeseen circumstances.
