Is this trip right for you?
  • Summer (May to September) can be very hot everywhere, which means that it can be quite uncomfortable for those not used to the heat. It’s important to use sun protection and drink plenty of water. Please consider this when booking during the Summer period.
  • This trip includes time spent travelling in a minivan with your group. Extra space can be tight, and conditions may feel a little cramped. It’s all part of the adventure and a great way to get to know your fellow travellers. Please read the itinerary carefully for travel time estimates.

STAYING CONNECTED
While Wi-Fi is available in our hotels it is important to note that wi-fi works best in the hotel foyer and will be very slow in the rooms. An easier option may be to purchase a SIM card in Morocco to stay connected.
TRAVELLING DURING RAMADAN
Ramadan is an exciting time to travel through Morocco but there are also a few things to bear in mind. Meal times will be a lot later than you may be used to, in particular dinner. You will find restaurants will open at 7–7.30 pm in the evening for dinner. Which will mean your family may not be eating dinner until 8–8.30 pm. Likewise breakfast may not start until 7 am. As you travel through the countryside there will be limited small road side cafes to stop at. Your leader will pre-plan where to stop to ensure families have access to snacks and bathroom stops along the way. Morocco is a Muslim country therefore alcohol is not readily available, particularly during Ramadan.
Optional transfer from Marrakech to Casablanca
If you are flying into Marrakech we can provide an optional transfer to the starting point city of Casablanca. This transfer is on request and prepaid. Please speak to your booking agent for further information.

We have recently done an amazing family trip in Marocco with Omar Bouredda. Our tour started in Casablanca and finished in Marrakesh. First day, we were welcomed by our guide and fellow travellers. Our guide’s informative and constructive instructions provided a solid foundation for our exploration. Throughout the trip, our guide’s warmth and friendliness opened doors to many authentic experiences and enriched our knowledge about Moroccan and Berber cultures. It seemed to us that our guide has been known by many people in all the cities we visited, he was always greeted by people from all ages. He had already made good connections. This gave us a big confidence and created a difference to be with Omar. If we have not been harassed by anybody at the streets by anyone, this is due to our guide’s attitude. The Medina tour in Fez, the camel ride at Sahara desert, the visit of water irrigation systems, the 10km Atlas mountains hike on the search of nomad families, the family lunch and dinners, the tea ceremonies, the visit of Atlas movie studios and finally Marrakesh city were the highlights of our trip. We were in total 3 families, we all enjoyed the trip. Kids were from similar ages, they had a good time and built a lovely memory of the Marocco. We can easily recommend our guide, Omar, who has had exceptional rapport with our children and who kept his positive and friendly attitude from morning to evening every day. His contagious enthusiasm and genuine care ensured that every member of our family felt welcomed and valued. Without a doubt, we wholeheartedly recommend this Marocco family adventure trip to anyone seeking an unforgettable experience, made even more special by the guidance of remarkable individuals like Omar. Thank you.

We took our first family tour with Intrepid, and it was beyond our expectations. I was worried about dynamics with other families, and everyone meshed. I was worried about being bored on long drives in the van, and there were plenty of breaks/stops. Our guide, Omar, was AWESOME. Having a guide/tour company manage the details made the experience stress-free and relaxing for our family. Thank you Intrepid!

We had the most amazing time in Morocco on a Family Comfort trip. Our leader Jamal Kassi was wonderful, we felt very safe with him and his local knowledge was invaluable. I loved visiting the old medina in Fes, a feast for the senses! My children (8, 10, 12) liked the camel ride in the Sahara the best. I loved the experiences that would have been impossible to arrange ourselves; sharing mint tea with a nomad is his tent and being served a Moroccan feast in a local's mud-brick home were moments I'll never forget. Our trip was made all the more enjoyable by travelling with other families and sharing the experience together. I'm very thankful that our family has had such a great time in beautiful Morocco and that we've had the opportunity to go beyond sightseeing to understand more of the history, the culture, and the people of the country.

This trip gave us an amazing insight into the country - we really feel that we saw and experienced a great deal. Our trip leader was excellent and helped us to experience local customs and meet local people which was so special. The hotels on our family comfort trip were of a good standard overall, but the first and last hotels were far superior to the rest.
