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. 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

My most awesome week of adventure

Mt Toubkal Winter Climb

5.0 April 2017 Exodus Travels Recommend: Yes I would highly recommend this trip. I had the time of my life. It was a perfect balance of adventure, fun, challenge, teamwork, culture and relaxation. First time using Exodus - very impressed, can't wait to book my next adventure!
Climbing the steep snow/ice slope with crampons and ice axes for a superb view and awesome feeling of accomplishment!

Our group leader was THE BEST. He guided us easily, we trusted him fully, he provided us with excellent information and was always available - nothing was a problem! He was also so much fun and easy to get along with - I miss him and everyone on the trip!

My advice would be do some winter walking if possible, if not walking and I'd also highly recommend a taster ice climbing session just to get used to crampons and ice axes. I did this and felt it was very helpful.

I had the BEST time!

Mount Toubkal Winter Climb

Mt Toubkal Winter Climb

5.0 April 2017 Exodus Travels Recommend: Yes Really good intro to high altitude winter walking!
An hour long picnic at 4,167m, soaking up the sun, sharing time with new friends and taking in the stunning snowy vistas!

Hassan was excellent throughout the trip, looking after us on the hills and in Marrakech.

I was a bit worried about the grade 7 rating. If your fit, can cope with the cold and some very basic accomodation for a few nights - go for it!

Fantastic Trip

Atlas Descent

5.0 April 2017 Exodus Travels Recommend: Yes Plenty of uphills in this Atlas Descent!!
Being immersed in the hugely diverse scenery which changed daily from red rock sandstone to barren mountains to lush palm oases to alpine meadow.

Jon was excellent; unflappable, organised, hardworking, always going the extra mile, down to earth, approachable, knowledgeable and spending time with each member of the group.

We went on the trip in February and were glad of our layers, thermals and waterproofs!! It rained some days and the temperature felt near zero at some of the higher altitudes. Some of the sections were muddy and some of the descents / ascents were fairly technical, some parts were similar to red graded UK trails. The bikes all seemed to be tubeless and were very well maintained. None of the group had a puncture so we wouldn't have bothered bringing spare inner tubes in hindsight. We did bring bags with platypus type bladders but in hindsight bottles are better because you can then leave your bag in the jeep.

Try to visit the souk in Agadir, sights / sounds / smells were amazing. Also don't miss the walk to the Cascades in Immouzer.

Cycling Moroccos Great South

Cycle Morocco's Great South

5.0 April 2017 Exodus Travels Recommend: Yes This was a fantastic, really very well organised trip. The roads in Morocco are amazing and in really good condition, not at all what I expected. Perfect for cycling.
Climbing the Tiz an Test Pass. What a fabulous ride up and down with all the switch back bends.

John, was a great leader, he kept an eye on everybody and just let everybody go at there own speed, which was great.

Make sure you take some warm clothes as it can be cold up in the mountains. Morocco is mostly dry (no alcohol), but your leader will usually buy a small amount of booze for those who need it.

If you like a challenge and the hills, this trip is perfect for you. I am quite a slow rider up and down so I just plod along and I love to stop and look at the scenery which was amazing.

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. Make sure you soak it all up – especially the tea. It’s fantastic.
