You’ll spend a day exploring the medieval narrow streets and markets before continuing on to Merzouga, where you can experience a camel trek into the Sahara Desert. After a night under the stars, you’ll make your way to the Dades Valley, where you can see some of the most stunning rock formations in Morocco. From there, you’ll head to Ait Benhaddou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most popular filming locations in Africa. Finally, you’ll end your trip in Marrakech, a vibrant city full of markets, museums, and historical sites.

FAQs

How can I book 10 days tour from Casablanca?

You can book the tour by contacting us. It is not possible to book directly for different reasons. First, we are specialized in private tours; therefore, we need to check if you would like to book the tour as it is or you have special requirements. Second, the price varies from one situation to another. Consequently, we need to give you the full details before you book. These are the main reasons why we like to contact us first.

Why there is no one price for the tour?

There is no one price because the tour is not a shared tour. The price varies based on the number of travelers, the type of accommodations, the itinerary...etc. for example, the price of 4 people traveling together will be cheaper than the price of two people. The reason behind that is that the 4 people share the car, the driver, and the quides, so logically the price per person will be cheaper.

In addition, the type of accommodation influences also the price. A traveler asking for 5-star hotels will pay more than someone asking for 3 stars... Normally, we calculate the costs of each service before we deliver our quotation.

Are our prices cheap? or Expensive?

If you check the prices asked by international companies, you will see that we are 3 times cheaper than what they ask for. The main reason is that we are the ones who serve their travelers. Therefore, we give them our prices and they add their margin. However, the prices of Morocco Travel are reasonable. That is to say, we provide a good combination of price-value. we are positioned in the lux market but we provide standard tours for affordable prices.

Great experience and unforgettable trip with Morocco Travel

I wish I had more stars to give you! what a fantastic experience we had. At first we had no idea what to expect for accommodations, being unfamiliar with Riads and Dars, but they were all gorgeous, clean and the staff were all wonderful people. Ismail, our guide, was FANTASTIC, which meant a great deal, as you can imagine for all of those days being in the car with him for so many hours. Both of the walking guides for the 2 days that we did walking tours were so knowledgeable and friendly. We have already recommended this company to everyone. From someone who experienced worked booking tours, I can tell you that this was 1st class

wonderful 10 days with Morocco Travel

We were considering booking a 10 day tour through a noted US travel company but the price was approximately $6200 pp We contacted Morocco Travel and could receive the same itinerary with similar quality hotels for 1/3rd of the price. We were a little skeptical at first, but after reading the other reviews decided to proceed and go out the middleman. Morocco Travel lived up to our expectations and more. They were very organized and they provided a very good survice. Our guide, Ali, was so nice and funny. We had a great journey with him. The local guides in Marrakech and fez were excellent as well as were the outstanding hotels in fez, Dades Valley, Merzouga, Rabat and the luxury camp in the desert. Some of the hotels were the same as the more expensive US based tour. In summary, would not hesitate to book your entire visit with Morocco Travel.
