  • See behind the scenes when you meet local producers of goat’s cheese in Chefchaouen, follow tasting trails through Fes and Marrakech’s medinas and visit a women's cooperative producing argan oil.
  • Hit up Morocco’s highlights, including the Blue City of Chefchaouen, the ancient medina of Fes, the Sahara Desert and the buzzing city of Marrakech.

Is this trip right for you?
  • Morocco is a great food destination for vegetarians. With wonderful fresh produce and many delicious local dishes, you'll have a great time on this trip. For vegans we recommend reviewing the itinerary and inclusions to ensure that you will be able to fully participate and enjoy this trip. We also have many other trips to the Morocco which can accommodate a range of dietary requirements.
  • As this trip covers quite a lot of ground there are some long drives. These are excellent opportunities to get to know your fellow travellers, catch up on some reading, or simply appreciate the scenery.
  • On Days 8 & 9 you'll visit M’Goun Valley. This remote area of Morocco is an amazing place to discover on foot, but to do so you'll need a moderate level of fitness and have the relevant footwear and clothing with you. Don’t worry if trekking isn’t really your thing, there are plenty of other activities to do in the valley.
  • The weather in Morocco can be extreme. Summer temperatures can be uncomfortably hot, especially for those who aren't accustomed to the heat, so please consider carefully what time of year you travel.
  • Although you shouldn’t expect any aggressive selling techniques in Morocco, please be aware that you may be approached by shop owners and street vendors offering their goods to you on regular occasions.
  • Ramadan is an annual month-long festival, during which travel can be a rewarding cultural experience, however some regular services may not be available during the day, such as restaurants or cafes, and occasionally travel can be disrupted by events. Your leader will adjust the itinerary accordingly, but please consider this when selecting your travel dates. You’ll find dates and further information in the ‘Climate and seasonal information’ section of the Essential Trip Information.

I have just participated in an Intrepid foodie 12 day tour of Morocco-I can’t recommend this highly enough-such a unique destination-friendly people and amazing food with lots of variety-the mint tea was delicious And the Atlas and Mid Atlas Mountains are a majestic haunting beauty which are a sight to behold

What an adventure. 12 days. New friends and memories. Ever changing scenery, walks through medinas and oases, the epic camel ride into the desert, and sharing meals with families in their homes. This tour brings you the real Morocco. Our guide Mohamed was amazing. Passionate and knowledgeable and always available to answer questions or handle issues. He wanted each day's adventure to be an eleven, and each was. Sadly, one of our group provided challenges. This was not the right tour for them. Mohamed showed his professionalism by listening and helping them so they could enjoy aspects of the tour. Intrepid offers a unique way to travel by immersing you in the country's culture off the beaten path. I could not recommend this adventure and guide Mohamed more highly.

This is a fantastic trip with many unique experiences one would never have one’s own. We visited so many wonderful, unique and lovely places. Staying in guesthouses and sharing meals with families in their homes is incredibly special experience. Guide was simply amazing. Don’t worry about nonsense like sleeping bags and toting your own luggage - accommodations were great, linens and blankets are always provided and wee never once carried our own bags. If you have any hesitation - go for it! Amazing and unique experience you could never have on your own. Truly trip of a lifetime.

A trip that afforded insight into another culture. The food, color, fellowship, experiences all made the time in Morocco an experience to never be forgotten. Camal riding a hoot, eating in private people's homes, private tours of cities with locals, thoughts about culture and history, thank you Intrepid.
