Morocco Travel Agency

The only way to truly know Morocco is by visiting! Prepare for your trip to Morocco with this information.

Morocco’s sprawling landscapes offer four different mountain ranges, while long golden beaches line a coast that borders both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. In the south of the kingdom you’ll find Morocco’s most famous feature – the spectacular, mesmerizing Sahara Desert. And throughout the land you’ll find lush oases, cascading rivers, deep valleys, and rich vineyards.

Moroccan’s are generous, caring, and talented artisans. You will find art and music all over the country along with traditional Moroccan meals like tagine and couscous. And let’s not forget our famous mint tea! Our history is ancient and exciting — did you know that dinosaur bones have been found in Morocco? 

Whilst travelers are voting with their feet, the travel press continues to recognize Morocco too: Casablanca is amongst TripAdvisor’s Top 10 destinations on the rise for 2018, Essaouira is commended for the great value for money it offers in Lonely Planet’s Best In Travel 2018; and the Guardian places Fez on its hotlist for 2018.

We went on a 19 days tour with All Morocco Tours and it was so much fun. Riads gave us a more authentic experience, which is why we chose them. You can stay in a hotel anywhere, but Riads are magical. All Morocco Tours made our schedule fit a long list of oddly specific things on our bucket list, and nothing was too much trouble for them. Our driver, Hamid, was another highlight of the trip. He was so helpful, kind, and thoughtful, and once we got him to open up, he was so funny. Since Hamid was from the area, he knew a lot of people everywhere we went, so we always had great local guides. If we asked him about something he didn't know the answer to, he made sure to find out for us. (Including somewhat ridiculous questions about soil composition etc) His musical skills kept us entertained on long drives, and when we went to the desert, he put together a group to play for us, which was a magical experience. We highly recommend booking with All Morocco Tours, choosing the Riads, taking your time, and getting to know your driver and guides. If you do nothing else in Morocco, make sure you visit the Sahara Desert with All Morocco Tours. Their knowledge of the area and contacts there made sure that our time in the desert was better than we could have imagined.

In 2019, Aziz took us on a wonderful 7-day tour around Morocco. He was a very responsible driver who made sure we got the most out of each city we stopped in and gave us clear instructions. I'd highly recommend a tour with him, and we'd love to tour Morocco with him again.

We booked a round-trip trip with All Morocco Tours for 5 days. We didn't have much time to book, so we didn't ask for a quote until the weekend before our trip was to start. All Morocco Tours replied quickly, and even though we didn't have much time, everything worked out great. Aziz picked us up at the airport the next day. Aziz told us a lot about his country and showed us many things while driving us around. He was very helpful. He set up a city tour of Fes with a local guide he knows on the spot. And he took us to Arfoud to see the international dates festival, which was a great time. He was a very good host and took very good care of us the whole time. We had a great time in Morocco. It was exciting and fun, and we saw and learned a lot about this interesting country.

Everything about the trip was great, including the preparation, the communications with the agency, and the guide. I traveled three days with two other people from Marrakech to Fes and was always astonished. With several stops, we were able to see a lot in a short amount of time. The trip was made pleasurable and we viewed the greatest places at the right times thanks to the assistance of our driver, Aziz, who was always courteous and helpful. We had a great time and got a lot for our money! Many thanks to the crew, to Aziz for everything, and to all the accommodations.
