Description of Morocco small group tour, Moroccan melodies
This Morocco small group tour is a comprehensive trip around Morocco’s most historic cities as well as its desert outposts and Atlas villages. You really are getting insight into the country’s array of landscapes on this carefully crafted itinerary, starting in Casablanca where the highlight is the vast Hassan II Mosque overlooking the Atlantic. Literally, as it has a glass floor so you can see under the water too.
Our next stop is Morocco’s capital city of Rabat, often overlooked by visitors but boasting a fascinating history, having been conquered by the Romans, Phoenicians and both the Almohad and Merenid dynasties. More Roman history can be seen at the ancient ruins of Volubolis , with more superb archaeology at old imperial city of Meknes.
Fes is always a must on a cultural tour of Morocco, with some of the country’s finest ancient Islamic heritage such as Attarine Madrassa, Moulay Idriss Mausoleum and Karaouine Mosque as well as the most wonderful medina. The next couple of days are in great contrast to Morocco’s cities as we enjoy a jeep and camel safaris in the Sahara Desert, while also getting a chance to spend the night in a traditional Berber camp. Before we head onto the final city of this trip, we have one more memorable landscape experience at Todra Gorge, a magnificent canyon in the eastern part of the High Atlas Mountains near the town of Tinerhir.
The trip draws to a close in Marrakech, the city that bombards all the senses and never seems to sleep. Especially in its famous Jemaa El-Fna Medina where all the action happens.

Reviewed on 08 Nov 2017 by Gabrielle HarropCamel riding in the Sahara was the most memorable. The tour covered all the places we wished to see and provided a good insight into life in Morocco. We enjoyed being a small group (there were 6 of us) as this gave us more control over what we wanted to do. Read full review

Reviewed on 07 Oct 2014 by Alan ParksWe found nearly all aspects of the holiday excellent - from the organisation of the trip, the excellence of the guide and driver for whom nothing was too much trouble. The wealth of things that we saw and the various modes of transport that we used were excellent, which we would not have seen travelling alone. Read full review
PlanetHow our company is making a difference:
We know that making the positive difference we aim to achieve will not be an easy task. However, our enthusiasm and commitment towards our travel responsibility mission is far stronger than any obstacles. We believe that in order to achieve any objective, the company has to have accurate policies and procedures for the employees and the guests to follow in order to reach our goal.
Morocco is a country which has become famous for its ruins and aged old places of worship. As part of our pre tour briefings we mention the effect that we as humans could cause in terms of touching or attempting to break pieces of these old artifacts for souvenir purposes. We also encourage travelers when entering these aged old places of worship to take care of where the step and to always follow the tour guide’s instructions diligently.
We have decided that the environment is a major component of any local community and any negative effect on the environment would directly have an impact on the lives of the inhabitants of the local community. Therefore, we have drawn up a strict environmental protection policy that all our employees and travelers have to abide by. For example, we recycle empty ink cartridges. A company collects them and disposes of them the correct manner.
In Morocco, we never accept a tour request for the sole purpose of hunting. The wild life in Morocco is considered a part of the heritage and we cannot have a hand in the negative impact on the loss of the country's predatory animals.
Furthermore, portable water in the country is restricted so we encourage all travelers to take precaution not to drop any waste in the water they pass by.
For us, Responsible Travel is the only way to travel.
PeopleThroughout our long tourism business journey, exceeding 15 years of travel operation in the Middle East, we have succeeded in establishing strong links with the communities we are dealing with in the host destinations.
We believe that the Responsible Travel concept has to be a two-way strategy with both the travelers and the local community gaining benefits. We benefit the local communities we visit using a wide scope of activities that have a positive impact on the local economy, directly by donating money to charity organizations, financially supporting some local communities and by recruiting employees who belonging to the local community. We encourage our guests to buy local products and make use of services that people local community offer. We help indirectly through capacity building projects we implement with our employees and through the experiences and culture exchanges that take place between the locals and the travelers during our tours.
We promise to support the local community of every destination we take our travelers to. We will do this by employing local guides, using local handicraft shops and recommend shops to our travelers so that their holiday spending contributes to the people of that country. Furthermore, we provide each traveler with a tipping guide. By doing this we set a concept of tipping and gratuity for every person who will offer a form of service to the traveler.
We have also considered the social aspect of the local community and how to respect the customs and traditions of the inhabitants helping us operate our tours. We always provide our guests with all the information needed to understand the community they are visiting and we create valuable opportunities for the travelers and the locals to mingle and exchange ideas and thoughts.
The first objective is to operate our tours in the most perfect way possible. Our second objective, but not second in importance, is to benefit the local community, protect the environment, and have a positive social impact on the inhabitants living in our host destinations. One of the ways of doing this is to inform and educate our travelers on the cultures of the destinations. By doing this we aim to create a form of respect between the travelers and the local citizens who they will face along their tour.
We educate all our staff on the real life situations of each destination. Sales consultants will use this information to inform potential travelers of the correct information and threats that they may face. By creating long lasting relationships with our local ground handlers, we are able to establish what needs the community has and through their information we can inform our travelers what they can contribute to the local community from their home countries.
