Is this trip right for you?
  • 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 will write a public review when I return home. Right now I’m soaking up the Moroccan sun on my last day on the rooftop of my Riad. Thank you.

Fantastic trip! I’ve always wanted to visit Morocco and after these 11 days, look forward to when I can come back. Our fantastic leader Ibrahim made the trip all the more immersive and enjoyable. The accommodation was (mostly) fab, though I might reconsider the 7.5 hour drive up to Bin el Ouidane even though the view was stunning. Essaouira is absolutely a great addition; a wonderful way to chill out after 7 packed days.

Our guide was amazing. Very knowledgable and really helped my wife and engage with the local culture. The pace of the trip was well thought out, we were able to see a lot without feeling rushed or tired every day.

I've never done an organised trip before and wasn't sure what to expect. We had an excellent trip with a great tour guide and a lovely bunch of fellow travelers. We'll definitely be booking another Intrepid.

Our Intrepid 8 day Moroccon tour was an excellent way to see how magical this country really is. Vibrant colours, exotic smells, hustle and bustle and then the beautiful serenity of the countryside with accomodating and very friendly families. I would highly recommend this tour.
