    Absolutely. Most of our private tours include a mix of Riads and hotels. It is important to keep in mind that Riads are much smaller than a regular hotel and therefore an early booking is strongly recommended. Riads sell out very quickly and if we are unable to secure availability, we will offer the next available Riad of the same quality standard if available.

    We have also carefully selected a list of our preferred partners and categorized them from Basic to luxury and can be found under Accommodation options tab.

    Clearly, there are several advantages of choosing a guided tour. For many people, the fact that their trip is already planned represents a huge relief. We handle all the logistics of your tour from accommodations, ground transportation, sightseeing, meals, to greeting you at the airport with assistance with all the formalities. During the tour, we can also offer optional excursions to nearby points of interest by local guides, so that you may experience even more of what the region has to offer. In addition, our tours come in a variety of comfort levels and lengths to suit your preferred traveling style and budget. You can choose from a budget 4-star hotel to a world class residence known as a Riad. Another value of taking a guided tour is the cost. If you were to handle all the logistical details of your trip, you will most likely end up paying a lot more since we have preferred tariffs with our suppliers. Most people with little knowledge of the region see a great value in taking a guided tour.

    A private tour is an excellent option for you to explore the region at your own pace. Basically, you decide everything from choosing the length of your journey, selecting the hotel to opting for the type of cuisine of your choice. We have found that most of our travelers who opt for a private tour are quite knowledgeable of the region. Almost half of them have visited Morocco in the past and are back to explore a certain aspect of the country. A typical custom tour includes a private limousine with the assistance of one of our experienced English speaking driver/guide, sightseeing and accommodations. Typically, a private tour will cost you more than if you opt for a scheduled tour. Clearly, if you are very familiar with the region and don’t mind the extra bucks, a private tour may be the most ideal means to discover Morocco at your own pace.

    Our tour leaders will always provide options for nightlife. These options vary from location to another.

    No. Many women in Morocco dress just like they do in the States. You can wear anything you want. The only exception is on tours of the Mosques. To enter you will need to dress conservatively as you would to enter a church here Ð no shorts, tank tops, etc. As in any country, you should use discretion with your attire if you want to avoid unwanted attention.

    The official written language is Arabic. The main spoken language is Moroccan Arabic, an Arabic dialect that often includes French and Spanish words.

    In Morocco it is custom to barter for purchases. We’ve found that some people enjoy this intrinsic part of Moroccan way of life while others may not. The first step in this process is for you to explore what many merchants have to offer before grabbing the first rug that you like. Spend some time touring the medina and compare prices in order to make an informed decision. Many people have asked whether they should allow their tour guides to barter for them. Our tour guides are government certified and although you could be better off letting your tour guide barter for you knowing that he or she will earn a commission on the sale price, we recommend that you do not involve them in this process. Typically, the vast majority of our travelers handles this process by themselves or seek assistance from a friend or from another tour member.

    Hi Brahim, Our trip to Morocco was great. We really liked our driver Hakim. Besides some intense bargainings with a carpet seller in Fes, the trip was fabulous, the riads were a terrific surprise and I am really glad I stayed at La Maison Arabe they were soooooooooo nice there.

    Hi Ibrahim, We just got home from our Discover Morocco trip a week ago and we can’t stop talking about it to our friends. Walking in the medinas, seeing the desert and the mountains, eating the amazing food – it was all superb! What made it more enjoyable was the hospitality of the people, particularly our local day guides who spoke English well and were so patient answering our questions. I even had a henna tattoo for less than $2.00! Mark bought a giant wood carved camel from the medina in Marrakech so our kids can hardly wait to have it!!Jennifer Haskins

    Gateway2Morocco helped me make excellent pre-tour plans to spend five days in Marrakesh prior to the departure of my 10 day Discover Morocco Tour that originated in Casablanca December 31, 20016.We traveled throughout the country in a modern mini-bus. The driver and tour guide were outstanding in their fields of expertise. The 4-Star hotels were luxurious and the buffets were delicious. I enjoyed the vegetables, couscous and tagines so much that I bought a Moroccan cookbook, spices, and metric teaspoons so I could cook the dishes at home.Morocco is a beautiful county and we were able to view it from the coast, the Mid-Atlas and the High Atlas Mountains. Some of the highlights for me were: the Hassan II Great Mosque in Casablanca, the tanner’s souks in Fes, watching the sunrise in the Erg Chebbi Dunes, driving through the Tiz-in-Tichka Pass, the Djemaa El Fna square in Marrakesh and the Ryad Mogador in Essaouira.BeJae Blake, San Luis Obispo, California

    Just wanted to say thanks for all your assistance with my recent vacation... It was an exceptional 10 days… (The country offered) a variety of spectacular experiences.Everything on the program went quite smoothly and I saw more than I could if I had tackled this incredible country on my own. I like that we were able to visit so many locations and squeezed a lot in a day - including many driving miles! Our tour guide was exceptional and provided comprehensive information about the geography, history and culture. The accommodations were all fine and the meals varied form hotel to hotel. My travel mates were three fun loving Aussies who made this vacation quite memorable.Overall, the trip exceeded my expectations. Many thanks for your attention and assistance.Linda
