To many travellers Morocco holds an intriguing sense of mystery. We were no different and I’m pleased to say we were not disappointed. Lonely Planet describes Morocco as “the gateway to Africa, and a country of dizzying diversity”.
From the westernised city of Casablanca to the old cities of Fez and Marrakesh to the High Atlas Mountains and the Sahara Desert and many others in between this country is stuck somewhere between old world where horse and cart are still the well used means of transport to and the new where modern day houses and cars line the streets.
We don’t normally do tours when travelling however we had heard good reviews about Moroccon tours with Peregrine Adventures and decided to try a small group tour. So glad we did we learnt so much and our local guides in each city were so knowledgable and our main guide Saaid was absolutely amazing. We would visit Casablanca, Rabat, Meknes, Volubilis, Fez, Midelt, Sahara desert, Todra Gorge, Dades Valley, M’goun Valley, Ait Benhaddou, Ourigane and finish in Marrakesh.
