Morocco Guided Tours

It’s amazing how much history is in each city of Morocco.

Fes, for example, has been around for over one thousand years. The stories and cultural meanings behind major buildings, mosques and schools, are hidden to visitors with no prior knowledge of Morocco.

That’s why we advise taking guided tours of the main cities of Morocco. Your eyes will be opened to a wealth of knowledge that you would have never grasped on your own!

Arabic and French are considered to be the national languages of Morocco and both are generally used in documentation and street signs. The Moroccan dialect of Arabic, Darijah, is the language most Moroccans speak in their homes and on the street. More and more people are beginning to study English especially in the tourism sector. There are also three distinct Berber dialects – Tamazight, Tasusit, and Tarifit – used mostly among the Berbers themselves.


Do many people speak my language…English/French/Spanish/etc?

Moroccans are, in general, linguistic engineers! You will find that the majority of Moroccans you meet are proficient in at least two Western/European languages. If you speak slowly and listen carefully, you will be understood in Morocco.


What is the weather going to be like?

Morocco boasts four distinct seasons. Spring: March-May; Summer: June-September; Fall: October-November; and Winter: December-February. Spring and Fall are definitely the most lovely, temperate seasons, climate-wise, to explore Morocco. Summers are usually quite hot (90ºF – 105ºF in the north, hotter in the southeast/nearer to the desert) and the Winters can be quite cold (35ºF-55ºF, colder in the more mountainous regions). Most of Morocco’s rainfall occurs during the Winter, especially near the coast and in the northern region of the country.

Important: travelers should note that the country of Morocco operates on a different schedule during the Islamic month of Ramadan, when Muslims are required to fast during the daylight hours. Month of Ramadan 2009: late August-late September. Month of Ramadan 2010: mid August-mid September. Month of Ramadan 2011: early August-early September. And so on…

Morocco’s rainy season is in the winter time (November through March). Rainfall is rather rare throughout the rest of the year. Umbrellas are available for purchase in most major towns and cities, especially in the winter. If you have a small travel umbrella that you can throw in your luggage, it would be a good idea during the winter months.

Some of the best sites to see while in Morocco include but are not limited to:

The imperial cities of Marrakech, Fes and Meknes are where you find wonderful bazaars, palaces and bustling town squares. Some of the best seaside towns include Essaouira, Agadir, Tangier and Asilah. Morocco is also famous for the natural beauty of its Atlas Mountain – people travel across the world to climb the highest of the High Atlas peaks, Mt. Toubkal. The Sahara Desert, with its golden dunes and winding camel trains, is, of course, the renowned favorite of visitors from every walk of life!

What should I wear?

Moroccans tend to dress up a bit more than the majority of Americans, in a style which has often been described as “Arabopean.” As a foreigner, however, your attire will depend slightly upon your travel plans. If you are planning on remaining near the coastal, more Western-style cities, be sure to pack some classy, “going out” clothes for dining out or an evening promenade, as well as your more comfortable, sight-seeing clothes and shoes. If you are planning on a more exploratory country tour, you will want to make sure that you have plenty of comfortable clothes and shoes for walking, driving and, of course, riding camels. If you are going to be trekking or hiking, all of the normal equipment would apply. Women might be more comfortable in any location with longer-sleeves shirts and full-length skirts and pants, but it is not necessary for women to cover their hair. Men in Morocco do not usually wear shorts, unless playing sports. Bring swimsuits, as many hotels have lovely pools!


Can I do laundry during my travels?

Some hotels in Morocco provide laundering services, while others will simply give you directions to the local laundromat where you generally will pay a few dollars/euros for a load of laundry…a bit more for dry-cleaning. We recommend people doing laundry in the cities where they have multiple nights.
