Description of Morocco women only tour

This women only tour of Morocco will take you on some fantastic adventures - for example, driving through the dramatic landscapes of the Atlas Mountains, riding a camel across the desert and sleeping underneath the stars in a Bedouin camp. It’s not all about exploration though: there’ll also be time for relaxation and pampering, including time at a traditional Hammam and learning to cook authentic tagines at a cookery school in the coastal town of Essaouira.

Among the other highlights of your trip are a tour of the beguiling blue city of Chefchaouen, a visit to a fossil museum in the Sahara Desert and time in the Imperial city of Fez. You’ll also be able to bag a bargain in the souks, relax under date palms and spend time at the beach.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Morocco women only tour

Environment

The philosophy underpinning all our tours is a fundamental respect for the environment and the local people, their religious beliefs, culture and traditions.

We provide small, select group tours for those who wish to discover, explore and experience the real Morocco and its hospitable, welcoming and tolerant people. Accordingly, our customers stay in good, family-run accommodation where they are welcomed and cared for as guests, using only localy grown produce in the meals served .

We eat in local tried and tested restaurants to ensure they sample the best of the local Moroccan cuisine. We also work closely with locally trained and highly knowledgeable guides who have become our good friends over the years. All this contributes to ensuring a genuine and meaningful interaction with local people and provides guests with a unique insight into the Moroccan way of life and culture and also assists in breaking down barriers.

As part of our commitment to responsible tourism we have developed strong links with the local communities we visit including Artisan and conservation projects, a women’s weaving cooperatives based in the Rif Mountains and the southern desert area as well as a womens embroidery co-op in Fes are on our list to visit.

We are careful always to select those who abide by ethical practices and demonstrate a “tangible” respect for the environment and the animals such as camels used for transport in the desert. As an animal lover I employ only camel owners who look after thier animals well and are recomended for this. We will visit a donkey sanctuary while on tour, we support one in Fes and also one on the outskirts of Marrakesh.

Plastic bags are now banned in Morocco, please bring a re-usable shopper with you for the market experiences. We also recomend when you order drinks to stipulate that you prefer without a straw.

All our guests are sent detailed pre-departure information upon booking their trip. This includes information on travelling responsibly and minimising waste whilst travelling. Travellers are encouraged to remove unnecessary packaging from items before leaving home (recycling facilities are often more accessible in home countries) and to use either rechargeable batteries , wind-up or solar-powered electrical items-such as torches and cameras .
At the start of your trip your Tour Leader will also remind the group of the importance of disposing of waste wisely.

Community

We work closely with an organisation which provides free veterinary care, as well as offering free guidance on nutrition and proper handling and management of working animals such as mules and donkeys and the feral population such as the Medina cats.

When travelling with us, we encourage our guests to find a little space in their luggage to bring a few essential items such as children’s clothing or pencils and books. Alternatively, they may make donations to support local schools in remote and under-developed areas such as the Rif. This support is welcomed wholeheartedly by the local community as it is socially acceptable being compatible with the Islamic principal of alms giving.

We have been influential and active in supporting local crafts people who are being urged to teach their skills and pass these to the next generation. We also play our part by actively encouraging our guests to purchase their mementos from these artisans. We are also currently assisting with clothing and books for a village school in an impoverished area and assisting in conservation projects such as the Barbary Macaque awareness and conservation non profit organization.

Our travel information page provides much more detail including advice on bargaining, local etiquette as well as understanding social mores , customs and traditions, responsible use of local resources such as water and local environmental issues.
