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.
