    The tour was amazing – I love that you got to see so much of the landscape and the people and although on paper the journalist looked long that wasn’t the case when I was there. Our guide Hicham was wonderful he was very knowledgeable always calm and paid attention to every member of the group – it wouldn’t been the same without him.

    As a diverse experience of what Morocco has to offer this was a great tour. Hotels and meals were variable, but always acceptable and we gained a real understanding of the lifestyle and culture. Our Guide Tarik did a great job ensuring that everybody on our tour got the most out of it.

    One of the worst tours I've ever been on. My guide Mustapha was not detail oriented and he kept making errors. I've been on Intrepid tours where the group size was a maximum of 12 but on the Best of Morocco the group size was 16. We were squeezed into a small, uncomfortable minivan for most of the trip. I submitted my negative review on Intrepid's website several weeks ago but it has yet to be published on the website. I tried to follow up with an email but it was ignored. This really makes me wonder about Intrepid's overall review score of 4.8 for the trip. If Intrepid excludes negative reviews then its ratings system is suspect and I wouldn't trust any of the ratings on their website.

    Morocco is worth seeing!! Marrakesh, its capital, is the place full of so unbelievable places to visit! Marrakesh's labyrinth Medina (Old City) district is the town's star attraction. The narrow alleyways are a kaleidoscope of colours, scents and sounds, and bound to be the sightseeing highlight of your trip. Djemaa El Fna the large square at the entry to the Medina is the centre of Marrakesh life. The Djemaa El Fna (assembly place of the nobodies) is a vibrant hub of bric-a-brac stalls, musicians, storytellers, fortune-tellers and snake charmers that never seems to rest. The Koutoubia Mosque is Marrakesh's most famous landmark with its striking, 70 m tall minaret visible for miles in every direction. Medersa. Built in 1565 by the Saadians, the (madrassa - Islamic school of learning) of Ben Youssef is the largest theological college in Morocco. Saadian Tombs. The tombs here include the ruler Al-Mansour, his successors and their closest family members. And many others!!!!! You will definitely like it! Stay in Sirocco d‘Amour Boutique Hotel. www.siroccodamour.com. Fantastic place to fill Moroccan style!

    Very recommendable trip in Morocco. Itinerary very well designated. You'll get the most of the country. Tour leader Yousseff did an excellent job. He gave good information about the contry and the places we visited and tried the best so anyone in the group was as comfortable as possible.

    One of the worst tours I've ever been on. This was one of the final tours our guide was doing and it really reflected in the quality of the tour. This is my first trip with Intrepid and I really regret not going with more reputable tour companies like Gadventures. The whole time was a push to eat and buy what they are selling, the worst are the "coops" ...who's really getting this money? The "guided tour" if you can call it that, was just taking the group to shops ( yes disclosed in the notes) but the day is wasted as the guide waits around for his commission in each shop ( especially in Fes). I would have prefered to go on my own and get lost or go to Chef....such a waisted day. The only good thing about the trip was Essouria and the guide was knowledgeable until the end when she takes you to a silver shop and again waits for commission. Ps the 10% is not because you're on the Intrepid tour everyone that walks in gets it. Always negotiate and don't trust what the guides are telling you.

    The overall experience was eye-opening, love the cultural diversity. Our tour guide, Khaled Ait Lnoh, was thoughtful, accommodating and fun to be with. He is awesome, and I enjoyed his company. Living accommodations can be better, I would like to see some improvements on living arrangements.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • February 1, 2017

      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.

    • December 1, 2016

      Is the single supplement mandatory in this tour?

      It is not mandatory that you pay a single supplement as a solo traveller on this tour. Intrepid allows you to be paired in an accommodation with another solo traveller of the same gender, the single supplement fee will only be charged if you opt to get a room on your own.

    • December 1, 2016

      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

      I would definitely recommend TourRadar. Their site was easy to use and their response was immediate. They had me booked and sorted in no time. I was so surprised that things could happen that quickly.
