Top Trip Memories
  • Tasting freshly roasted lamb on the appropriately named Lamb Alley in the Jemaa El Fna – the large marketplace in Marrakech
  • Awaking at 4:30 AM to ride your camel across the dunes at Erg Chebbi just in time to see the sun rise on the Sahara
  • Browsing the flatbreads, jams, olives, and cheeses provided at our Riad – a Moroccan home with an interior garden, many of which are rented to tourists like small bed and breakfasts
  • Meeting a Moroccan local in Chefchaouen who explained the health benefits of the local vegetable soup to us in Spanish (since we did not speak Arabic and he did not speak English), before buying our dinner as a gesture of warmth and welcome

Tour Tips
  • You can literally see all four seasons during one week in Morocco -- the weather here is nothing like what you would experience on the best Costa Rica tours. From the seas of the coastal town of Essaouira to the desert at Erg Chebbi, you might experience snow flurries, warm breezes, and even be surprised by a rainstorm. This environmental and geographic diversity makes Morocco a beautiful place to visit at any time of year.
  • Although your tour will likely provide guides who speak your native tongue, if you wander out on your own, keep in mind that the population mainly speaks Arabic and French (with some Spanish in the north).

Morocco was such a magical country that stole my heart; I will definitely be going back

Morocco Journey

5.0 April 2017 G Adventures Recommend: Yes Morocco was such a magical country that stole my heart; I will definitely be going back. It is difficult to describe through words or pictures, it doesn't capture the beauty of the country and locals! The tour was well organized, we saw so much and had unforgettable experience always feeling safe and well taken care of. There is so much to see in Morocco and we saw such a great selection of what the country has to offer on this tour. Defintely add a few extra days in Marrakesh as its an amazing city! Our guide, Yacine, truly elevated this experience for us by ensuring that we were always having a good time and having a local experience. He was able to have us see what it is like to live as a Moroccan and experience local customs. I HIGHLY recommend this tour and especially with Yacine as your tour guide. What an unforgettable, spiritual and magical trip! Read more

Flying carpet trip over the Atlas Mountains

Cycling the Cols of Morocco

5.0 February 2017 Exodus Travels Recommend: Yes The Exodus feedback form asks whether any aspect of the trip was disappointing, Aside from purchasing a magnificent carpet which has so far refused to fly, I could think of little. The routes were well planned and provided wonderful climbs and descents on every day. The leaders were professional but relaxed, thoughtful and enthusiastic and took care of a group with a range of ages and abilities. The support vehicles and 'snack stops' were well organised and left us free to enjoy the cycling without worrying about luggage or water. The mountains are very beautiful and the dry warm sunny days allowed us to cycle in short sleeves but without overheating.
Enjoying summit after summit with a great bunch of guys.

Radu Man is professional but relaxed and a great leader who made sure everyone was looked after regardless of age or ability. He was assisted by Liz who was also great. Having two leaders was an important part of the success of the trip.

The description of '100% tarmac' is hopelessly optimisic. Quite long stretches amount to little more than dirt or gravel and potholes are a regular feature. This should not discourage anyone from taking the holiday but I would suggest the ideal bike is a lightweight gravel bike with disc brakes, decent hill gearing and 28 or 25 tyres of the most bombproof you can find. I rode 25 gator skins and was surprised to last the week without mishap. The hire bikes are of good quality but they are not all triple (as described) and some do not have mountain gearing.
November seemed perfect weather for this trip

I have probably never written as positive a review of a holiday before but it was really excellent...and no, I have not been paid or asked to write this review!

Really enjoyable, sometimes challenging, off-road cycle trip!

Jebel Sahro Ride & Marrakech

5.0 February 2017 Exodus Travels Recommend: Yes A really enjoyable week cycling off road (mostly) around the wonderful landscape of the Jebel Sahro mountain range. The trip was very well organised, the guides + drivers were extremely knowledgeable and the 29" tubeless Genesis bikes were well maintained (and not one puncture during the whole week!) The weather and scenery were spectacular! Rural, mud brick villages and swathes of lush, green palmeries amidst desert landscapes. Food was a plenty and dinners were a feast of tagines, couscous and local drumming!
- Sitting and drinking mint tea on the terrace of our hotel after our first days cycling watching a double rainbow appear/disappear into the kasbah and palmerie.
- Testing my skills on the single track options and coming out the other side unscathed!

Radu and John were exceptional.

I opted for this trip as I don't have alot of mountain biking experience and was a bit reticent about booking myself straight in for the Atlas Descent. This trip was a great introduction yet there are still challenges even for those with more experience. The 16km off road climb up the Tizi n'Tazzazert pass is tough (half the group of 14 made it with the other half opting for completing 6km).

It really was a superb trip!

Got what it said on the packet!!!

Jebel Sahro Ride & Marrakech

5.0 February 2017 Exodus Travels Recommend: Yes First time I had participated in a group activity holiday and also a total novice on a mountain bike (road cycling being 'my thing'). Outstanding week: well organised, all needs catered for, supportive and encouraging leaders and group members. Variety of routes offered different terrains, experiences and challenges alongside fantastic scenery. Provided an insight to life outside of Marrakech and in the desert. A thoroughly enjoyable experience and so glad that I took the plunge!
The ride through the desert to Bou Thrar with the 5km climb to see the High Atlas mountains in the north and the Jebel Sahro to the south. Beautiful vistas throughout the ride and a challenge in the ascent which was rewarded by the view at the top followed by the descent.

Radu and Jon were outstanding group leaders. Very responsive to the individual needs as well as the group. Provided help, advice and support throughout. Thank you for making it such a great week.
Have also got to mention the support team that were there, Ali, Lassam and Hamoud. They were great as well, seeking out ideal places to stop and being ready for our arrival and keeping us warm when needed along with the safe transfers to hotels and cycling start points.

Need to have a decent level of fitness. Take enough clothes to accommodate the possibility of cold and wet weather (this just happened the once but need to be prepared).

Go for it! A brilliant week and one that will not be forgotten quickly.

Morocco Trips & Tour Advice

Morocco is where Europe and Africa meet – both literally and figuratively. The influence of Spanish and French culture can be heard in the discussions on the streets with French a common second language to Arabic and Spanish heard often in cities like Chefchaouen. Add the beauty of the Mediterranean, the Sahara Desert, and the sprawling Atlas Mountains that divide the country’s north from the south and you get one of the most beautiful environmental contrasts anywhere in the world.

Start your trip in Marrakech, where deals on Moroccan carpets, samples of olives, and spices can be found in the Jemaa El Fna, the famed square and market where capitalism knows no bounds. From there, ride into the desert and see Ait Ben Haddou – a desert fortress that’s been in many great movies such as “Gladiator.” Make sure to arrange a camel tour into the desert where you’ll spend the night under the stars, and then awake early to see the sun rising on the Sahara. Continue north to Fes where the Medina (the old town) is even more impressive than that in Marrakech. If time permits, find yourself in Chefchaouen, a small town known for blue painted homes visible for miles.

Marrakech: Negotiation is king

When you arrive in Marrakech, the first rule is “everything is negotiable.” From the taxis to the markets, haggling is simply a way of life in this town. As you arrive on the breathtaking Jemaa El Fna, take in the beauty of the square and the local architecture before you start wandering down the long corridors of the Medina – the market where deals on everything are waiting to be had. Do not miss Lamb Alley – a place with some of the most flavorful and moist meat, served with fresh bread and a bowl of salt.

The Desert: A Gateway to a Land of Beauty Think back to the scene in Gladiator when Russell Crowe’s character Maximus is fighting other gladiators in the ring. That scene was shot at Ait Ben Haddou, a UNESCO World Heritage site that thankfully has been preserved well enough for you to explore. As you proceed onwards to Dades Gorge, prepare to gasp at the vibrant colors of the rock as you wind through narrow canyons. You should end your tour at Erg Chebbi, where a young man on foot will guide you and your camel to a desert camp. Spend the night eating a typical Moroccan meal consisting of chicken tagine, steamed vegetables, and classic Moroccan tea. And when you awake early, worry not. Your groggy, coffee-less self will manage to get going because soon you’ll be seeing the golden-orange hues of sun as they illuminate the Sahara. A sight not to be missed on any Moroccan tour.

Overall Thoughts

Morocco evokes so many senses at once that sensory overload will set in within your first day. From the smell of spices and street food in the medina to the brown colors of the clay in the walls of local buildings, prepare for a sumptuous experience for the soul. Despite language barriers, the country welcomes tourists with a warm heart, a rich history, and a cup of tea. Let Stride help you soak it all up – especially the tea. It’s fantastic.
