Our journey through Morocco was one of the best vacations I've ever had. Our guide, Abdellah Outezdot and driver, Ali Hamougan were amazing. They became our extended family by the end of the trip with emotional farewells on our final days. Having them made the trip easy, fun and culturally educational. The distance between cities were broken up well enough to make the long drives bearable and we enjoyed the local music they played for us in the car. Our local guides were also knowledgeable and helpful and we always felt safe wherever we travelled to.
Thank you again for providing us with such a well organised 9-day tour of such a beautiful country. ”
This was an extraordinary trip! One of the best I've ever taken. Nina was a great help on the front end as we worked to put together this trip according to our interests and level of accommodations. She was flexible in making changes right up until we made our deposits. We were pleased to have visited so many different parts of this beautiful country. It was the perfect overview for a first time visitor. We quite literally fell in love with Morocco.
We really can't say enough about our guide Lhoucine Ouzaouit. He was an exceptional ambassador for Morocco and the most gracious guide and host. He was knowledgeable about the cities and stops on our tour and helped to personalize our interaction with the country in a way that really touched our hearts. We learned so much about the country's history and people and important events that have shaped what the country has become today. On the practical side, Lhoucine was good at getting us moving when we were slow (most often in the morning!) and flexible when we needed to change the timing of our plans along the way. And he was caring and attentive when a couple of us became ill. What an incredible asset he must be to you and your team!
Just a quick note about Hassan, our driver. We were amazed that someone so young was such a masterful driver in all circumstances--from busy city streets to winding mountain roads to wide open freeways. We always felt safe and comfortable with him at the wheel and remarked over and over again about his excellent driving skills.
Thank you to everyone at On the Go for making this the trip of a lifetime!”
Morocco as a country from the Sahara to the Atlantic coast, crossing the a
Atlas mountains has so much to offer. What a beautiful country with amazing food and friendly people. Our holiday was absolutely amazing everything was perfectly organized. Our guide was fabulous nothing was too much trouble and he was very knowledgeable. ”
Inspirations for a holiday in Morocco
Want to create a tailor made itinerary to Morocco that is out of the ordinary? Take a look at our pick of unique things to see and do on holiday to spice up your holiday to this magical country.
Lights, camera, action!
As the film capital of Morocco, Ouarazazate has acted as the backdrop in many famous films from classics like Gladiator to modern flicks like Prince of Persia and has also been featured in the increasingly popular Game of Thrones television series. Pay a visit to the film studio, set over 20 hectares of land, and see familiar setting from your favourite onscreen action.
Swells of Taghazoute
Set on Morocco’s stunning Atlantic Coast, the laidback fishing village of Taghazout has become mecca for surfers thanks to its world-class swells. If you fancy tackling the waves yourself consider heading here for a few days of sun, sand and surf. Spend the days learning how to handle a surf board and the evenings relaxing in a hammock with a cool beer in hand.
Prepare food in Fes
Whether an adventurous gourmand or amateur chef, Fes is the perfect place to put on that apron and try your hand at preparing traditional Moroccan cuisine. Discover the aromas and spices of local gastronomy, learn about where ingredients are sourced, prepare a meal with the help of an expert chef and then sample the fruits of your labour. The trick will be recreating the dishes back home!
If you are searching for a truly authentic Moroccan experience then you cannot go wrong with a traditional hammam. Playing a significant role in local culture, most Moroccans will frequent a hammam at least once a week. Whether you choose a public or private hammam, prepare to be sloshed with water, scrubbed down with olive soap and masked in mineral-rich clay. Opt for an argan oil massage to top it all off.
Trek to the summit of Mt Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa, across rugged mountain terrain, through earthen Berber village clinging tenaciously to valley sides, taking in stunning panoramic vistas along the way. Upon reaching the summit you’ll be greeted with breathtaking views across the High Atlas Mountains with the orange dunes of the Saharan desert in the far distance.
Hotel Saharan Sky
Home to Morocco’s first private observatory, the Hotel Saharan Sky boasts a rich inventory of astronomical equipment. Whether you have experience handling telescopes or are new to star gazing, someone will be at hand to guide you through the solar system. Spend an incredible evening star gazing here and then consider heading out into the Sahara for a night under the stars.
Suggested Tailor-made Holiday itineraries for Morocco
Whether you're interested in combining Morocco's imperial cities with a night under the stars in the Sahara desert, or the dramatic High Atlas mountain range with the charming coastal town of Essaouira, we have a range of itineraries to suit your needs with an interactive map further below to help plan your perfect trip.
Where you spend the night should be an experience in itself and in Morocco you cannot go amiss with a traditional Moroccan riad. Unlike modern hotels, riads do not offer a wide range of facilities but they make up for this with warm hospitality, an abundance of old world charm and sumptuous traditional decor. To get off the beaten track, consider staying in an eco lodge or converted Kasbah in the heart of the Atlas Mountains, or spend the night in a desert camp amongst the vast rolling dunes of the Sahara.
