Tailor made trips and tours in Morocco

Morocco

Morocco has heritage. It is easily accessible by scheduled flight as well as by some of the budget airlines, which means a lot of people visit Morocco. But no matter how much of an impression Morocco makes on her visitors, they make little or no impression upon her; best of all Morocco is proving resilient to globalisation: the big brands are there but when you’re standing in the medina (“old town”) there’s no doubting you’re far from home. Morocco lies so close to Europe, yet is so completely different.

If there is one Moroccan city that is a “must” it’s Marrakech which is situated at the end of the trans-Sahara camel caravan route of old, on a plain that is as flat as a billiard table (The Haouz Plain, 750 m asl) with the remote, icy, snow-caped peaks of the High Atlas forming a splendid backdrop to the city itself. The 8-miles of city ramparts remain in-tact and enclose a throng of humans who are a living market; everything from walnuts, oranges, hides and spices to carpets, camels, silk and jewels is to be found. Trading is a way of life, and shopping a full-on sport, so if you enjoy browsing, and a good-humoured haggle, you’ll love Marrakech.

Local knowledge

The first trip we organised to Morocco was in 1983 and since then some of the Berber guides we have known have retired, others have married and still others now have their own agencies. We have a wonderful array of contacts and can tap into “The Berber Grapevine” to find just about anything! Our partner in Morocco is a husband and wife team (French lady and Berber gentleman) who are always a pleasure to deal with and between us we can provide cars, guides, Kasbahs, mules, Barb stallions and just about anything else to do with travelling in the Maghreb, Atlas mountains and Sahara.
