    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. In other words, you will have different option in cities such as Casablanca, Marrakesh with casinos and disco entertainment sites. In remote locations such as the Moroccan Sahara, you will experience a more traditional entertainment nightlife with the Berber while enjoying a peaceful night under tents.

    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.

    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.

    My husband and I had a wonderful time in Morocco! Our driver Hamid was excellent and very courteous. The program was well balanced and we made sure to make frequent stops at several remote Berber towns. The Riads and hotels you selected were top notch and the food was quite a feast! I am now going to try a few recipes. We will always remember our beautiful journey to Morocco! Thanks to you Karen and Karim for all your hard work.Elena

    We just returned from our grand tour of Morocco and had a fantastic experience. The trip was planned well and we had a wonderful driver and guide, Shakir, who was with us throughout our journey. The hotels were uniformly wonderful, with the exception of Atlas Medina which has problems with staff professionalism. The meals planned for us were also top notch, especially Bo et Zin in Marrakesh. We had an absolutely fantastic guide, Abdul, in Fez, who planned a well paced and full day of touring. He was especially good with our teenaged daughters and provided a very informative and historical tour of the city and was a wonderful helper in our bargaining with merchants. The desert was awesome and we enjoyed our stay there (although the drive there was very long); I would recommend telling people staying at Riad Maria to bring flashlights as the electricity is not on all night long. I highly recommend the dromedary camel ride up the dunes at sunrise. One other thing we noticed is that we needed more cash than we anticipated as many places did not accept credit cards (restaurants and hotels between Fez and Ouarazate).All in all, we would highly recommend your agency to our friends who wish to travel to Morocco. You were incredibly available in planning the trip and very responsive to our needs. Thank you.The Stevens/McAndrews family

    We were very pleased with the program itinerary. It gave us an insight into a great cross-section of the country, from the ancient medinas to the desert and the High Atlas and the coast. We very much appreciated the choice of Riads: in Fes and Marrakech in particular the accommodation was outstanding.Our driver, Abdul, was wonderful and a pleasure to be with. We felt very safe with him - he was a very careful driver and obviously knew his way around, both geographically and socially. We were also very impressed with the way the guides appeared on cue in every location and the informed way in which they introduced us to each place. The guide we had in Fes was particularly outstanding.Thank you,Elaine and Michael Yeomans

    We are back from our wonderful 2 week trip to Morocco. Overall the trip was excellent. The tours of the various locations were excellent Villa Mandarine in Rabat was very nice. Sofitel Palais Jamais in Fez was fabulous. Tents were great. Berbere Palace in Ouarzazate was very nice and by report the nicest in the area but it is a bit dated. One shock I had on the second day at the Berbere Palace was when I had a massage. I never had a completely nude massage before, especially not with a female massage therapist! It was a bit weird but I figured if that was the Moroccan way, then so be it. La Maison Arabe in Marrakech was excellent and had great food. The special dinner show in Marrakech was not arranged and while the driver (Abdul) stated he could try to arrange it, we decided to forgo the hassle of this. We personally preferred the Fez medina to the Marrakech medina. The Djemma el fna was a bit of a disappointment considering it is listed in travel books as the number 1 attraction to see in all of Morocco.We enjoyed the Atlas film studio tour in Ouarzazate. Our driver, Abdul, was very attentive throughout the trip. He told us that the president of your company called him one night when we were in Ouarzazate to talk to us (which was very thoughtful and unexpected), but it was 9 PM in Morocco and we were already at the hotel rather than with Abdul.Thank you.

    We've just got back from our trip and so it's time to give you some feedback....We had a great time in Morocco. It was wildly exotic, educational, wonderful and fun.We were right to choose high-end Riads: they were delightful, Wonderfully furnished, and the staff in each one were attentive, helpful and charming. Each Riad was individually distinctive and it was clear that the owners were determined to make us welcome and comfortable. For us, the riads were an important part of the Moroccan experience, and much more enjoyable than the "global style" hotels.So we were pleased with the selection of hotels, and were also pleased that the driver recommended and arranged for us to stay at the Tombuctoo in Merzouga rather than driving back to (and then back from) the Xaluca in Erfoud.The itinerary was well balanced - not changing hotels every day, and Giving us enough time to see quite a lot in the primary cities (Fes, Marakesh). Everything went smoothly and there were no unpleasant incidents. Our driver was very helpful, protective and easy to talk to, though we spoke French most of the time, as he was more comfortable in that language. He drove well, was courteous, and looked after us attentively. The local guides were well informed, helpful and friendly. We were particularly pleased to get close enough to the guides and the driver to be able to learn much more about Islam and its importance in Muslim life – a real education that most westerners could benefit from these days. It left us with considerably greater respect for the people and their religion.We were particularly interested in the interior decoration – carvings, mosaics etc. in the mosques, riads and mausoleums, and we saw plenty. We also really enjoyed the visit to a Berber home - it was fascinating. Also, the Djemmaa-el-Fna Square was a high-point, especially arriving in the dark in the evening, with the overwhelming vitality of the scene – the crowd, the food, the smells, sounds, lights, music and general vitality.The Moroccan food was excellent, but the repetitiveness of it was tiresome. In virtually every arranged meal, the menu was the same: an array of "Moroccan salad" dishes, followed by tagine and couscous, the only variation being the occasional addition of a bastilla. These meals were individually well prepared and well presented, especially in the high-end restaurants (Yacout, Maison Bleue), but having the same menu so often was more than we could take; so we were always looking for variety - fish, or European fare.The shopping was excellent - which means that we contributed a lot to the Moroccan economy, especially the carpet sector!We would happily have missed the Fantasia production at Borj Bladi: the whole thing was like a parody, with the staff and performers clearly uninterested and unmotivated. We left as quickly as possible.But all in all, we had a great time, despite the inevitable digestive troubles! And I took hundreds of photos, which is very unusual for me.Many thanks for your help in putting the trip together.Best regards, Ralph
