Israel / Palestine: How might this impact your Morocco tour?
As news of the war in Israel continues and the US government encourages travelers to be alert, you may have questions about how this might impact your Morocco tour.
Ultimately this is your decision & you need to be comfortable with whatever you decide, but we wanted to pass on some local perspective as well as some comments from those who have traveled over the recent weeks.
“Just wanted to also let you know that Morocco in general is very proud of being accepting of Jews, Christians, and Muslims living together. They are the only Arab country to have a Jewish Museum and they also have open synagogues.” BK -American who grew up in Morocco (Oct 2023)
“There is nothing… you know Moroccans. They are a little bit different than people who live in the Middle East close to the area there. Here it is so quiet and all Moroccans – they say ‘Taza before Gaza’. [Taza is a place is Morocco]” RM -Moroccan local man (Oct 2023)
“We are definitely happy we didn’t cancel from the earthquake scare. We saw relatively little damage and people just kept things happening. . . I know that others are in the newest dilemma about the war. Life is scary these days, but we were lucky to have been able to travel and see beautiful Morocco.” Janis – client (Oct 2023)
“When asked about the complications from the earthquake, we were reassured that everything was fine and it was all good through the whole trip. We were glad and happy to have the best time and experience in Morocco with your service.” CB – client (Oct 2023)
“We met several travelers on Experience It Tours as we made our way across Morocco and we all agreed that your company lives up to its name. Your service was outstanding from my initial contact with you until my final… panicked call to Amy on the morning of our departure to discuss the possibility of running into protests of the Gaza War while we were in Morocco.” Karen – client (Oct 2023)
