Private Morocco Tours and Unique Local experiences

  You are right to visit Morocco: despite the flow of visitors, it’s still a culture shock. Takes you right out of your comfort zone. It’s also unique: landscapes, customs, cuisine, local dialects or creative hotels ( and never mind soccer). We’ve been crafting private tours and local experiences since 2009 and every few months we get out of the office and jump in the 4×4. Set out to explore for things to do and see. And it’s great to have hundreds of happy guests and online reviews, but is that it ?

  Heck, we even scouted during the pandemic. Why ? Well, staring at a Mac screen for hours is bad for your sight. Joke apart, who’d want to miss a sunrise over the Sahara or trekking the untamed Atlas ? It never wears off. Over the last 14 years the approach has changed, or calibrated. The properties, sites and experiences on offer strive for a balance between our personal picks and those best rated by our former guests. 

Yes, we’ll show you how a woman cooperative winds the village life around it in Djebel Bani. Sample a French croissant for breakfast and glamp in a sublime desert camp in the remotest dunes of Chigaga. Change the day schedule of your private tour on the day itself. Yet, ultimately, it’s the people. The people of Morocco make Morocco worth visiting. And let’s start with our drivers. Majid, Daoud, Moustapha, Boujeema, Amine. Over the years, we toured more than a few routes together, got lost,  and shared many iftars, disillusions and laughs. Ultimately, any one of them is the link between you, the visitor, and the locals. Making a difference.

And to all those encounters along the way. Farida, uncovering the secrets of Fes’s medina. The village ladies with whom you will bake bread in the adobe oven.  The locals restoring their century old agadirs all over Morocco’s south. Ahmed sharing his knowledge of the local flora on the slopes of the Anti Atlas. In a post pandemic and climate challenged world, it makes us proud to be able to empower local communities and social projects. But this is hardly a one way street: you, the visitor will come out beguiled, moved, richer. You touring Morocco with Sun Trails, makes it possible for these communities to continue preserving what makes them unique. What makes Morocco unique. That’s what keeps us going.

Morocco. Untold.

Private Morocco tours behind- locked- doors visit of a medina with a local university teacher. Tea with the nomads on the deserted plateaus of the Anti- Atlas. Private four- seat plane flight over the snowy peaks of 4000- meter high peaks to land next to the dunes of the Sahara. Sun Trails Private Morocco tours and experiences. A night in your own private Bedouin tent, immersed in a silence so thick you could cut a strip through it. Bronze- Age rock engravings and eight- century old Berber igoudars, unreachable fortresses where each village family continues to stock their barley and wheat. A tour of the most interesting art galleries in Marrakech with a local artist. Walk through a palm grove and learn about the ingenious khettara irrigation system. Help squeeze olives into oil.

Travelers Reviews for private Morocco tours

The trip was excellent - a brilliant way to get out of the city for a day and experience a more rural part of Morocco. We really enjoyed all the stops on the tour and appreciated that a variety of add- ons were available but that we were not pushed to do any of these unless we wanted to. Our guide was fantastic- friendly, knowledgeable and interesting. He kindly accommodated our request for an extra stop at Kasbah Toubkal without a problem. All in all the day was great and I would highly recommend it to others when visiting Marrakech.

We wouldn't change anything about our private tour of Morocco. It is definitely a lot of driving, but we wanted to accomplish a trip to the desert in a short amount of time. What we saw was absolutely spectacular and Oualid took excellent care of us. He adapted happily when we wanted to change things up and suggested things to keep 3 teenagers happy. In fact, it was perfect having him with the family and he made the trip for our children. They loved learning from him and having someone other than their parents to interact with. Thank you for everything !!
