Frequently Asked Questions

Safety

Morocco is a pretty safe country that can be navigated with a bit of common sense, but there are a few things to be culturally aware of. We will brief you before arrival.

Preparation

Some of our tours involve a decent amount of driving and walking/hiking each day. Let us know of your physical abilities to tailor the trip to your needs.

Equipment

In preparation for your journey, we will be sending you a list of things to consider packing that will make your trip as smooth and comfortable as possible.

COVID-19

Yes, it is possible, however not recommended. We cannot, unfortunately, offer an accurate answer to this question due to the nature of the crisis, we would need to have up-to-date country-specific information based on where will you be coming from. We encourage our interested travellers to follow WHO advice and minimize travel at the moment. The Government has extended the country’s “Health State of Emergency” until December 10, 2020. Travel by air to and from Morocco remains restricted to different kind of travellers.  You will be requested to provide a hotel booking (Airbnb doesn’t count). Business travel is allowed with an invitation from the company you’re coming to do business with.. 

As of the current U.N and local news, as well as our hand-on experience, travel has obviously become a little complicated nowadays, what’s more, important is that the official information needed is always changing due to the nature of the crisis. So far U.S and European citizens can land in Morocco if they supply a PCR test 72 hours before boarding. However, there are many factors to be considered such as your country-specific local and national regulations as well as the fast-evolving restrictions due to the nature of the crisis. Don’t hesitate to contact us to help you find an accurate answer. 

The Government of Morocco is not imposing a mandatory quarantine on foreign citizens entering the country. However keep in mind if you have any history of COVID and or no PCR test to prove you’re negative, you may be tested and/or quarantined while landing.  Are U.S. citizens required to quarantine? No. 

This depends on which cities you’re planning to visit. There is a curfew in Casablanca between the hours of 9:00 pm and 6:00 am. In Marrakech, there is no curfew for movement, however, bars and restaurants close at 10:00 pm.

Yes, we are operational, however, we are closely monitoring updates and recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Moroccan ministry of tourism. As of November 2020, we are not recommending travel in Morocco, or in fact to anywhere in the world. For our stubborn travellers, we recommend precautions and respecting health measures. 

An Important Note From The Founder

Dear Travelers, If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that you’re really interested in traveling to Morocco, but are worried because you’ve heard it’s dangerous, especially if you're traveling alone and even more so if you're a woman. You’ve probably heard some stories on the internet. Well, GREAT NEWS! That’s mostly false! It’s actually safe and secure in Morocco, more than some cities in the U.S and in Europe, which I would know since I lived in both parts of the world and I have been organizing trips for hundreds of foreigners here in Morocco and we never had any issues. I have also had friends from the U.S and Europe travel the country alone, mostly women, and never reported any problems. As previously mentioned, The US Department of State issued on Wednesday, January 10 2018 a Travel Advisories system. The department ranked Morocco in category 1: the safest for US travelers. Read more here: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/traveladvisories/traveladvisories/morocco-travel-advisory.html The problem is that humans are more prone to talk about bad experiences than good ones, and likewise, more prone to read about negative things than positive. Even I was guilty of reading the articles warning travelers to be weary of traveling alone in Morocco, and some even almost made me double think about moving to this country. It actually wasn’t until I posted on social media that I found Morocco to be safer than some cities in the U.S that other people started coming out and agreeing, and sharing their positive experiences. So rest assured, all of the negative stories you’ve heard is either from a person who is not a good traveler, a person who is not used to other cultures, someone who thrives off of negativity, or a super rare occasion amongst tons of positive ones that unfortunately don’t make it on to the internet. My friends as well as my clients have all had a phenomenal time in the country. I’m a professional traveler myself and have given cultural consultancy services for companies moving to Morocco for diverse reasons. Using my common sense tips and strategies is what made me have a great time while living abroad and traveling the world. My experiences and knowledge will come in handy when I advice you and take care of your concerns personally. If you have any doubts about coming to experience this beautiful country, I will be happy to answer your questions personally and help you make a decision if Morocco is the right fit for you as a traveller. Sincerely Yours, Ari
