Northern Morocco 11 day tour
Description of Northern Morocco 11 day tour
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetDuring your journey, you will be staying in small, traditional style guesthouse accommodation, known as riads which are found in the old walled centres (medinas) of the cities. Not only does this minimise the impact on the environment, it also supports the local community and offers a glimpse into a time when many of these riads were used by wealthy merchants.
In terms of responsible tourism, the Middle East is generally not very advanced, but we advise clients on how to do their bit, from ways to save water, which is such a precious resource, to how to help with the evident litter problem.
We have strong links with the organisation Friends of Conservation (FOC) who have a number of projects they work on across the world; their aim is to 'join with local people and partners to support sustainable ways of living in harmony with wildlife, ecosystems and the environment'. Each of our departments also supports a chosen charity in its own region and in the Africa Culture department we frequently fund raise and donate to the Assafou organisation in Morocco.
PeopleThis tour takes you to some of the lesser visited areas of Morocco and your time in Fez includes a visit to some craftsmen at their workshops, where you can gain a full appreciation of the time and expertise involved in creating items. It is also possible to buy items directly from the workshops, thus ensuring the money goes directly to the crafts person.
You will also join a local family for a cookery lesson, where you not only learn how to prepare and cook some delicious, traditional dishes in an informal setting, but also benefit from some one on one time with a Moroccan family.
All tours are tailor made using local guides from each area who provide additional insight into the locations and sites you visit.
Although a daily breakfast is included, for lunch and dinner we provide a list of restaurant recommendations which are often small, independent family run options based on our personal experience.
