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.

Morocco has one of the lowest crime rates in the world and compared to the US and Europe, is considered a very safe destination. Moroccan people are known for their hospitality and they will make you feel very welcome.

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.

I had a fantastic time in Morocco!! Everything went very smoothly and I will definitely use this company again. I will go back and do the Imperial cities next time. I think the 7 days for the south was a good time. I spoke to several people who were on a 10 day tour doing the north/south and they felt it a little rushed. I enjoyed the small group and the flexibility it gave us during the day. I'm sure much of this was to do with our guide who was really good. All the meals were fantastic! Hotel staff were very friendly & helpful (one Manager let me use the internet in his office as it wasn't offered at the hotel) and the rooms, while some were a little "tired" were always clean. Our tour guide, Abdul, was very knowledgeable and patient with the group and where possible, did give us options. Everything ran very smoothly. I never felt rushed by him or hassled to purchase anything. Thank you once again and I will definitely recommend your company to anyone traveling to Morocco

Hi, Brahim: Cheryl and I want to thank you again for taking such good care of us on our trip to Morocco last week. We had a terrific time and were completely taken by charms of this exotic land, just as you promised. Thought you should know that your guide did right by us. He is knowledgeable, very well spoken, punctual and an excellent driver, a great personalty fit for us. Some days we did not use his services after 2 or 4 in the afternoon, but he always made himself available, even to come back to take us to a restaurant at night (we refused). The meal at Tobsil was wonderful (just voted one of the 12 most romantic restaurants in the world by Conde Naste travel); even better was Dar Marjane. Both incredibly romantic. The Soffitel in Essouria was also lovely, and a nice modern contrast to the Maison Arabe. As to the latter, it is a very fine property. Our room for the first two nights was a bit noisy being on the Courtyard, and we mentioned this as we were departing to Ess. When we returned they gave us a suite with 2 bathrooms. We were profuse in our thanks and praise. I tipped often while I was there. You might also recommend to Americans traveling to MarrakechMarrakech spa www.lesbainsdemarrakech.com for fine traditional treatments in luxury surroundings. Let me know if you want any further info/feedback. We hope to use your services again (I would like to visit Fes at some point). A deep bow, John
