    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Of course, we can! Once you have a confirmed booking on this tour, we can request additional accommodation for you with the tour operator.

    • Can a fit 72 yr old travel on a tour with an age range to 70?

      There is no upper limit for ages on this particular tour with Intrepid, however they do require any passengers 70 years old and over to complete a Self-Assessment Form.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

      A single supplement is available for this tour at an additional cost to ensure you have a private room, however, this is completely optional. Intrepid allows you to be paired in accommodation with another solo traveller of the same gender if you don't mind sharing.

      Please note that the price advertised is for accommodation on a twin/multishare basis. There may be times where facilities will be shared rather than ensuite (even if you paid for single room supplement!) and rare occasions when you share a room with passengers travelling on different Intrepid trips than your own.

    • How do we get cash when we arrive to Morocco?

      In the desert and Atlas Mountains opportunities to exchange money are limited. There are ATMs in all major cities, which accept Visa cards, MasterCards and cards connected with Cirrus. Some ATMs, belonging to smaller banks, will not work so occasionally you may need to try two or three before you are successful. We would strongly recommend bringing a combination of cash and credit cards. Credit cards are useful for large purchases such as carpets or gold from a large store, but generally speaking they are not accepted in many places. Local restaurants, markets, and many hotels will only accept cash as payment for goods

    • Do I need a visa?

      As a tour booking website, TourRadar cannot organise visas for you on your behalf as the visa requirements are regularly being updated and vary for the nationality of one traveller to the next. It is for this reason that we recommend checking with your local embassy or consulate website for the latest up to date information.
