We had a very good trip, and appreciated the diversity of this vast county. We saw the ocean, mountains, deserts, busy cities and little villages. Our guide was very professional, and stayed true to the itinerary which we had agreed prior to departure. He was knowledgeable about Morocco and its people. ”
We had a wonderful time on our tour! Abdellatif was a very conscientious guide, always making sure we had what we needed and willing to answer all our questions. He was friendly, competent, enthusiastic, and a pleasure to work with. The tour itself was really interesting, we enjoyed all the places we visited. Dades Gorge was definitely a highlight, plus it gave Hassan, our excellent driver, a chance to show off his skills. All the accommodation were excellent and the food was absolutely delicious. Thanks for an amazing experience.”
We have just returned home from a fabulous 10 day tour of Morocco. Our guide and driver were excellent and we always felt in safe, experienced hands. They were courteous at all times and nothing was too much trouble. Staying in Riads worked very well with some surprising gems hidden behind closed doors, especially Riad Al Bartel in Fes.”
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.
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.
