Morocco travel advice
Morocco travel advice for foreign visitors – Good things to know before you go to Morocco
It is really useful and helpful to know some piece of advice before traveling to anywhere in the world. We always do our best to provide you dear guests with several important advice you need to know before joining any Morocco tour or activity in Morocco country.
Best Morocco travel piece of advice:
Private Morocco tour /Marrakech group tour?
1 It is better to book a private tour of Morocco than join some of the big group tours. Even a group tour is cheaper but not satisfied to all people. You will find different difficulties during your trip; no time, no quality accommodations, low service and accept rules of group. Morocco Private tour; you are free, you can stop where you want, no people you don’t know in car, good accommodations and your own guide. Shared tours are also popular recently.
Driving from Marrakech to Merzouga strait!
2 If you drive yourself from Marrakech to Merzouga desert, I would recommend to spend 1 night in half way (Ouarzazate or Dades). Merzouga Sahara desert is far away from Marrakech and if you drive directly you will miss sunset which is one of the best things to see there.
Merzouga desert tour or Zagora desert trip?
3 We advise you to experience real Sahara desert with beautiful big sand dunes ‘Merzouga’ desert not ‘Zagora’ desert. In case you don’t have time and you want to experience camel trek anywhere, you can take short trip of 2 days to Zagora desert from Marrakech.
Best time to visit Morocco?
4 We suggest to visit Morocco for holiday in spring when lots of Morocco is lush and green. The weather that time is warm and the views are really awesome. The best timing to come Morocco is mid September to mid November or March and April.
Bargaining and negotiation the price Morocco souks
5 Bargaining in souks (markets) is very common and it is an intrinsic part of Morocco culture. That means you can treat bargaining as friendly game.
Right time to book Morocco trip
6 It is better for you to book your tour and accommodations on right time. Also, at least before a month or two to avoid any troubles and before the prices getting high.
Mineral water or tap water?
7 We advise you to drink mineral water and not water that local drink, because it may makes you disease in your belly. Bottle of 1,5 letters mineral-water costs 6 to 10 Dirhams depends where you buy it ( restaurant or public shop).
Is it cold in Morocco?
8 If you travel to Morocco in winter, you should prepare for that by bringing warm clothes. It is getting cold and you will nee jackets and gloves if you will ride camels in Sahara. In winter, most places in Morocco are very cold especially from December to beginning of March. It’s better to visit Morocco in (from March to May or from September to November).
9 We advise you not kissing your wife or girlfriend in front of Moroccans. Especially local family because Morocco is Islamic country and it is abnormal and shame for some citizens.
10 My last advise to you dear guests is: Enjoy your Morocco Tour as much as possible.
