Amazing tour across Morocco. Great experience and really good local travel expert
It was a delightful tour. Guide tours were really flexible and spoke 4-5 languages. Yussef (our main guide) ensured that we had a glance of everything! Hotels were a hidden jewel. We definitely want to come back for more.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What do I need to travel to Morocco?

    A visa is not required for a stay of up to 90 days. All passengers traveling to Morocco need to complete a health declaration form at least 72 hours before the flight. It is also advisable to check travel advisories or the nearest embassy and consulate regarding visa requirements before you travel.

  • How expensive is Morocco for travel?

    The currency used in Morocco is the Moroccan dirham (MAD), and one MAD equates to USD 0.10, making it a fairly cheap country to travel in. The average hotel price in Morocco for a couple is MAD428 (USD 42), and daily meals average around MAD132 (USD 13). Local transport costs around MAD70 (USD 6.82), so a trip to Morocco for two people for one week would cost an average of MAD6,272 (USD 614)

  • How many days would I need to travel across Morocco?

    Morocco is a country rich in culture and history, and if you want to see and experience everything this amazing country has to offer, you will need at least three weeks. If you have limited time, a week is plenty of time to travel from Casablanca to Marrakesh and take in some of the country's most iconic highlights.

  • What are some things I need to consider while traveling in Morocco?

    Morocco is a highly conservative country, so it is important to dress appropriately. Cover your upper body and knees at all times. It is also important that you cover your head when visiting mosques. If you go shopping in morocco, do not hesitate to haggle. Haggling is an integral part of Moroccan culture and is expected in most places.
