This trip was absolutely the trip of a lifetime. From unique and beautiful accommodations, to delicious food and tours that were ripped from the trip of my dreams, this tour was fantastic. Our guide Abdellah was. The best guide I’ve had anywhere in the world!

This trip was amazing! If you’re looking for a shorter tour of the highlights of Morocco. Please don’t make the mistake I did and research the weather prior to booking. I visited in August and temps got up to 47+ degrees during the day.

Kerrie · Traveled August 2023
If you’re looking for a short tour that gives you a huge insight into the Moroccan culture then this is for you. The tour is full of amazing experiences and you’re escorted by outstanding knowledgeable tour leaders and drivers. Keep in mind it can be unbelievably hot in August in Morocco and some days are long days of bus travel. The small number of passengers on this tour is ideal. Good friends are made along with great memories.

I am a female travelling solo. I chose to see Morocco with Intrepd tours, my previous Intrepid trip was in Russia approx 15 years ago. These tours do not disappoint. Very well organised, they they’re safe and they take the headache out of any hassles that may crop up.
