What began as a discussion with a friend about how much we enjoyed going to visit family in Morocco, has evolved into yearly tours with others who wanted a “different” kind of holiday. For the last ten years, we have had the pleasure of accompanying several groups of wonderful people around Morocco.
Some visited the north, spending time in the veritable living medieval city of Fes; the capital of Morocco, Rabat; small mountain villages; and, the majestic Atlantic coast.
Others visited the south, with its argan oil co-operatives, oases, High Atlas Berber villages, camels in the desert and Marrakech!
All experienced the magnificent Moroccan culture, colours, sights and sounds. And of course, the famous Moroccan hospitality.
To make this experience more “experiential” as well as attempting to follow ecotourism principles as much as possible, group sizes are kept to a minimum (no more than 12). We stay in authentic, traditional accommodations, often off the beaten track. The tours are not rushed, as we usually stay at least two days in most places we visit. We were invited into people’s homes on several occasions which, I understand from group participants, was a very enriching experience.
Here is what some of past participants have said about our tours:
Itinerary: “I wouldn’t have missed any of it. I can’t think of any of it that I wouldn’t recommend to others or do again myself.”
“Not over planned or chaotic.”
Ideas about Morocco: “I found the Moroccan people very warm and generous and welcoming of foreigners.”
Group Experience: “First time traveling with small group and having arrangements made. Very low stress.”
Accommodations: “All different and completely appropriate for each locale.”
If you are interested in these types of trips, please feel free to contact us for more information. Even if you are unable to be part of upcoming trips, we would be happy to keep you informed about future ones.
