Those in search of a romantic, dramatic and exotic travel experience need look no further than a trip to Morocco. With mystical allure, sun drenched stretches of desert, mazes of incense-scented markets and Berber villages hugging the sides of the beautiful Atlas mountains, there is little about a trip to Morocco that will not both awe and mesmerize travelers. From its scenic coastline to dramatic mountains and culturally rich cities, Morocco is a land of wonder and beauty. It is also a place that has intrigued travelers and writers for centuries. Whether you want to ride a camel across stretches of the Sahara or hang out in the infamous Casablanca, Morocco has something to offer any adventurous traveler craving to see and do things they never even imagined. The colorful streets and unique blending of peoples and cultures will have you transfixed and amazed. However, the almost medieval-like hustle and bustle of Morocco and vastly different cultural norm can overwhelm and confuse even seasoned and adventurous travelers. Especially for female travelers, the difference in religion and cultural norms can be intimidating (you will not see many women out in cafes and restaurants, especially unaccompanied by men). That’s why signing up for a small group adventure tour of Morocco can be an ideal way to experience this unique and vibrant country.
So, you may be thinking that travel tours are only for old people. But contrary to image of blue-haired Edna and her husband Bob riding around on a giant air-conditioned bus, adventure travel tours have become popular (and exciting) ways for people to explore uncharted territories in their travel repertoire. The truth is travel tours have come a long way since the days of giant air-conditioned buses and old ladies. Today there are tours designed specifically for the independent, adventure traveler. That’s right—active, interesting and adventurous tours that allow travelers to explore and experience a foreign place. First off, they keep the groups small, usually capping out at 16 people, so you won’t be traveling around with some awkwardly huge group of gawking tourists. Second, these tours don’t just scratch the surface of the places you visit. In fact, by using a combination of local and experienced guides, you’ll often see and experience MORE than you would on your own. Also, because these tours have already been developed to showcase the best of the best, you’ll save yourself from countless hours of potentially pointless research trying to find out where to go and what to eat. Guides will not only help you in learning the fine art of haggling (though you definitely shouldn’t expect to out haggle a Moroccan), they can also help teach you about local culture and give pointers on the best foods to try. Plus, what could be better than exploring a very un familiar place with someone who knows all of the best places to go? So, pack your safari caps and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime.
