Katie "I highly recommend this tour. Every day we saw something completely new, in many places off the beaten path - desert dunes, mountains, cities, villages. Every stop we made was worthwhile. The driving was fine - our van was comfortable. Accommodations were excellent, including a colorful gite in the Atlas mountains, a palatial riad, and luxury tents in the Sahara.

    Spent all day either in the van or at “optional” activities where you’re expected to spend money on things you can get for much cheaper at markets. Do Morocco yourself or use a different company.

    This tour was great. I learned a lot about the country and people. The time in the desert was my favorite. Coming from a big city, it was incredible seeing so many stars. Abdu was amazing. He was always energetic and willing to help when he could. He answered every question and did additional things not listed on the initerary. The only problem I had with this tour is the physical difficulty. The rating is a 2 out of 5, which I believe is too low. I booked this trip recovering from an injury thinking a 2 would be okay. The hikes the first and second days were very difficult for someone not in good shape. Every hotel also has stairs with no elevetaor, we climbed monuments, and we did walking tours. I would highly recommend anyone taking this tour be ready and able to do lots of physical activity (most times in extreme temperatures).

    This trip unbelievable! My partner and I had never experienced a group travel trip but decided to do so in Morocco as we were short on time. We loved our leader Issmail who always went out of his way for our group. My favourite parts were sleeping under the stars in the Sahara Desert (which we thought in October would be too cold - but it wasn't), staying with a family in a Gite in the Atlas Mountains (didn't see a single tourist in our little village) as well as the chillness of Essaouira. We saw so much in 10 days and meet some amazing people from around the world. I would DEFINITELY travel with Intrepid travel again! I have already started looking at Everest Base Camp Nepal as well as their active trips in Costa Rica. I think the best thing about Intrepid was the local leaders as well values and views on Responsible Travel.

    The Atlas mountains (excellent hike, Berber stay), seeing the Sahara, and riding camels. Especially loved Essaouira though. Very laid back, friendly, great shopping without aggressive sales tactics.

    This tour formed the second half of our "Morocco Encompassed" tour. Not a bad for the money. They handled logistics and accommodations well; however, I would have all but completely missed the historic and architectural wonders of Marrakech had I not done my own research, and been my own guide in the medina (our guide, Ahmed, was friendly, affable, and attentive to our comfort, but did not volunteer suggestions about cultural attractions or historic buildings). We covered a lot of ground, which is a plus, but we wasted precious time at canned tourist stops, which we're uninteresting, and far more expensive than the local markets besides. Also, the tour goes through a really interesting desert eco-system along the coast, with more interesting plants than the Sahara (including the popular desert landscaping plant Moroccan mound spurge and the argan, Morocco's iconic tree, in their native habitat!); a short stop along that stretch to look around would have been nice. In short, a good way to see parts of the country not well-covered by public transportation without breaking the bank too badly. Another important tip: Essouaria has the cheapest markets in the country -- do your shopping there as much as possible!

    I went on the South Moroccan Discovery tour in June through Intrepid with their Amazing guide Kalid Lamlih. The trip had the perfect combination of free time and adventure sightseeing every day. There was a lot of driving, but we saw so much of the country; from cities over the mountains to the desert as well as the ocean with stops at every ancient city in-between. Kalid broke up some of the driving time sharing his own stories of growing up in the mountains and his journey growing up in Morocco.

    The tour was fast paced but well organized. There was never an issue in getting to see everything and more that was on the trip notes as well as stop when we the group needed or wanted a photo opp. We saw so much of the country and our guide, Khalid L. in Morocco, was so knowledgeable and willing to share so much about the culture and people. This was one of the best travel experiences I have ever had!

    Previously being independent travellers, this was our first organised tour and it surpassed our expectations. It was a varied programme and was efficiently organised to make best use of the time, yet give us a wide range of experiences. It was a schedule easy to manage and allowed for some free time as well. Best of all was the excellent leadership of our guide, Hicham, who was generous with his patience, care and explanations. His knowledge and passion for his homeland was outstanding and left us with a new understanding and appreciation about the culture and history of Morocco.

After the trip, I went traveling on my own to a few cities in the north, but this was a great introduction to Morocco.
