Private tailor made tours of Morocco
From a 3-day escapade to a 16-day comprehensive itinerary. There is hardly a country more diverse in landscapes, dialects and local traditions. If Morocco is a canvas, the strokes are Arab, Jewish, Berber, Bedouin, African and European. Morocco is above all an assault on your senses. It's not world-class museums. Or x thousand years of history. Here, nights smell of cinnamon. Here, what looks like a crumbling house from outside turns out to be a pasha's palace once you stepped inside. Here, on the back of a camel across the saffron dunes, time expands. Our private Morocco tours achieve that fine balance between activity and rest, simplicity and grandeur, order and spontaneity. Trek the Atlas Mountains or bake bread with the ladies in the village oven. Have tea with the nomads and splurge in a palatial suite of a riad. Let us arrange a private small plane flight to the Sahara and surprise your loved one with a picnic lunch on the peak of a dune. The itineraries below are mere examples of what you can experience and the list is by no means exhaustive. We spend all year round travelling across Morocco, trying and testing new things. Only so that we are able to customize your tour to you and you only. We'll listen to your ideas and share our local knowledge. But first, see what startles your imagination. Then contact us and let us create something you'll remember for the years to come.
