While you may have less flexibility and a set schedule, the camaraderie and safety of traveling in a group, along with unique cultural experiences, make it an excellent choice for those seeking an immersive and well-organized Moroccan adventure.

Private or a group Morocco tour depending on your personality. If you are a social person who loves to know people and make relations with others, know other cultures, and belong to a community, group tours are the best choice for him/her. However, if you are close to yourself and you are not social, it’s better to travel on a private or customized tour

Excellent. The trip was magical. The Mustapha Guide had special care at all times. I was watching everything. It is a trip that can be done alone or in a group. It's all very quiet

A journey to repeat It was fantastic, always accompanied, excellent resident guides. Marrakech the city of people. A lot of people, motas cross for us and the best all peaceful. A juice in the big square. A dinner on the rooftop, super acceptable price. The Mountain of the Monkeys To the waterfalls of Ouzound a paradise in the desert.

Travel in Morocco Our trip in Morocco with IN Morocco trips was very friendly and very good times with the entire team during our 6 days in Morocco. We started in Marrakech towards the Merzouga desert. Hassan and Mustafa accompany us as non-tourist friends. The accommodations and the camp in the desert so beautiful and clean. Camel trekking is something traditional that one should try. We have visited the Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou and the Todra Gorges and more and more Thanks to Mustafa who organized our vacation in Morocco! We will be back.

Unforgettable and inexhaustible experience My stays in Morocco are filled with wonderful memories What generosity, what a warm welcome, we feel really good there 😊 I was able to visit Marrakech with its emblematic square its souk sa koutoubia Many places to discover such as the Majorelle garden, the Baya palace.... And without forgetting the discovery of Moroccan cuisine with all its spicy flavors The Ourika valley is also worth the detour, a calm, relaxing place with magnificent landscapes, Ihmlil also to find the calm of the mountains Then direction Essaouira for a change of atmosphere but just as pleasant, beautiful architecture and the tasting of fish straight from the fishing boats, an experience that I lived again in Taghazout where my stay remains magical and unforgettable 😍 Without forgetting a little detour to Agadir, a very developed seaside resort I have not finished my tour of Morocco, I plan to return there until I have exhausted all the nooks and crannies that remain for me to discover. I love this country and its people
