By popular request, I’ve put together longer, food-focused tours of Morocco along with partners at Roaming Camels Morocco. We’ve worked together to build great itineraries (there’s also a 7 day and 12 day option) that will create an amazing culinary adventure for you and your travel partners.

Why should I book this instead of a “less expensive” tour with a big agency?
Yes, these prices are more than some of the larger agencies offer however what you get in comparison is huge. With larger companies you’re on a group tour, often with 20+ people in a large bus. The quality of the places stayed is dependent on locations that can house a large number of people. You’re also just one of many on larger tours with no customization or added attention that’s only possible with a smaller group.
With this tour, it’s all about you!
We’ve charted out some of our favorite spots, places tourists don’t always go; working with local families and making sure YOU have the experience YOU want. Nearly all of your costs are upfront when you book this trip. Aside from a few meals and incidentals, you don’t need to worry about anything else once you arrive. No hidden expenses. Before you leave you’ll know what is and isn’t included.
