Morocco Explored really looked after us well on our recent first visit to Morocco. Their approach is not to package, but build a trip around your requests - you tell them what you have in mind and they make suggestions for an itinerary to achieve it. We had a couple of days in Marrakech and then a four-day trip in an air-conditioned 4by4 over the Atlas mountains to the desert, and it was just right - safe but challenging. We stayed in varied yet always comfortable accommodation, and as well as the sites we had planned to go to, we were taken (with our agreement) to other interesting places that the driver's excellent local knowledge enabled him to recommend. Morocco Explored also work hard to make sure that the arrangements are successful - which cannot be assumed in a second-/ third-world country like Morocco. An indicator of the attention to detail was our visit for lunch to a cafe for what was promised to be - and was indeed - "the best omelette ever" (done in a tagine). When we arrived the cafe had run out of bread, but the Morocco Explored driver drove to the nearest village to buy some.

Ask for Hammou as your driver. Honorable and humble man. We learnt more about the country and the culture these 4 days with him vs. any other book or guide. Excelent.

The hotels and inns that they use are simple, clean and decent local food.

I recommend the 4 day package. 3 days would be too hard in terms of rest.

The sleep over in the desert one of our best experiences ever - God's marvelous design at its best.

We found this company really good value for money and a good way to get the best out of your trip to Morocco especially if it's your first trip to Morocco and are unsure of what you want to see and do. The company we used Rough Tours 4 days/3 nights
We only had a week but had a really good itininery and it took the hassle out of having to organise routes and such as it was all sorted for us. Our week went like this :

pick up from airport
We had a day in Marrakech and a visit to places of interest with a guide, then we were taken to our Riad, which was of a high quality, but if you are looking for some where cheaper they will organise accommodation to your budget. Everyone was so helpful and friendly and our guide and driver went out of their way to ensure our trip had all the elements we had required.

visit of ait benhaddou, along the route of a thousand Kasbah's, there may not have been a thousand to count but it was a good day and the scenery was amazing.

Toudra gorges we stayed at a lovely small and friendly hotel with a great view of the gorge from the rooftop terrace. It was very Moroccan in style and we were made to feel welcome.

We continued on our way with some off road driving stopping off at many Berber village which are off the tourist trail our favorite was Ramlia,very nice small Berber village where we were made very welcome with glasses of mint tea, a traditional welcome in the real Morocco. Then on to...

-Merzouga for me the highlight of the trip as the camel trek was the big thing for me. We stayed overnight at small hotel setting off late afternoon to our camp in the desert where we stayed in berber style tents before setting off at dawn to see the sunrise in the desert, a magical experience, don't forget your camera. We arrived back at our hotel for a well earned hot shower and breakfast, before setting off to Ourzazate stopping off at Rissani market on the way.

At Ourzazate we visited a film set, interesting to see the sets of some major films.
Finally back to Marrakech for a last bit of shopping and an over night stay in a Riad before being taken to the airport for our flight home. Happy days.

In the summer, our family tries, whenever possible, to help our children learn about the world around them.
This year we decided to take a trip to Morocco to visit the desert and the Imperial Cities.
It turned out to be not only a trip, but particularly a humanly enriching experience for our children, visiting a country completely different from the western world and seeing firsthand the real day to day life of the Moroccan people.
Our heartfelt gratitude goes to Nourdine from Nomadexperience.

we booked Morocco Explored for Fez-Marrakesh trip. The tour guides were extremely fun and energetic, always look out after us. They are quite knowledgeable about all tour sites and took great care of us by showing us best photo spots on each site. I would highly recommend taking tours with Morocco Explored!
