This day trip takes you right across the chain of the High Atlas mountains and over the famous Tizi-n-Tichka pass, the highest in the whole of Africa. All along the route you can see the Berber villages perched on the side of the mountains, sometimes hardly distinguishable from the mountains themselves. At times you come down into the valleys to drive alongside the river bordered by oleander and fruit trees. The gardens are full of olives, walnuts, pomegranates, apples, pears and quinces. Berber women and children tend goats and sheep and climb even the steepest slopes in search of fodder and firewood.

The first Valley of the trip is that of the Lalla Takerkoust reservoir, which supplies Marrakesh and the surrounding area with water from the snow melt of the High Atlas. Here there are stops to take photos of the wonderful scenery over the lake.

We then pass the mausoleum of Moulay Brahim, a well-known Moroccan Sufi saint who died in 1661. Here you can have tea with a local Berber family, who will show you the traditional hammam and bread ovens.

This day trip takes you right across the chain of the High Atlas mountains and over the famous Tizi-n-Tichka pass, the highest in the whole of Africa. All along the route you can see the Berber villages perched on the side of the mountains, sometimes hardly distinguishable from the mountains themselves. At times you come down into the valleys to drive alongside the river bordered by oleander and fruit trees. The gardens are full of olives, walnuts, pomegranates, apples, pears and quinces. Berber women and children tend goats and sheep and climb even the steepest slopes in search of fodder and firewood.

As you reach the far side of the mountains the landscape changes dramatically, becoming semi-arid and desert-like. Here is the Kasbah architecture with turrets on all the buildings, adorned with grilled windows and soft peach coloured walls. These traditional houses are made of adobe, highly suitable for the climatic conditions of the south.

After the Tichka pass, you leave the main road and take a side road to the Telouet Kasbah, which belonged to the Lords of the Atlas, the Glaoui family, which stands in ruins after the last Pasha fled the country after the departure of the French. From there you continue for lunch at Ait Ben Haddou along the newly asphalted road.

The afternoon is spent exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Benhaddou, which has been used as a backdrop for many Hollywood blockbusters. It was one of the most important fortress strongholds on the old Salt Road caravan routes, where traders brought slaves, gold, ivory and salt from sub-Saharan Africa to Marrakech and beyond.

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.

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.
