“A well-established tour operator based in Marrakech who can organise bespoke trips to cities, mountains, desert and coast”
Accommodation in Morocco is far ranging: everything from simple homestays in Berber villages to intimate city riads to palatial hotels where you'll live like a pasha in vast suites with exuberant decor.
We've reviewed many of the hotels and kasbahs in extensive detail, so if you like the look of any of these, be sure to request their inclusion in your itinerary. Otherwise, be guided by Mountain Voyage Morocco, who will recommend properties to suit your budget and preferences.
You'll surely be familiar with tagines and cous cous (although probably not the authentic, slow-cooked flavours you'll try here). But don't leave Morocco without trying some of the more unusual North African foods, too. Harira is a chickpea, tomato and lamb soup, traditionally served at dusk each day to break Ramadam fast). B’ssara is another flavour-packed soup of broad beans and cumin, often eaten for breakfast. We also love chermoula-coated fish (a feisty combination of herbs and spices) and makouda (tiny fried potato balls with harissa).
Some of the things we loved...
Children are welcome on the tours. Family pricing differs from one hotel to another, though discounts are normally offered for little ones.
Mountain Voyage will arrange a vehicle with driver for your land transport within Morocco. This could be a 4x4, an A/C car, or a small minibus, depending on your group size and route. The driver normally stays with you throughout your trip, apart from Marrakech and any longer city stays. For any desert dune excursions, you travel by camel - either riding or walking alongside.
