In our humble opinion, there’s no better way to spend just under two weeks than travelling around majestic, marvelous, magical Morocco. 

In a country with no shortage of highlights, we make sure to hit all the main ones, including Fes, Chefchaouen, the Atlas Mountains, and plenty of souks to shop in and medinas to explore. After an overnight stay in a Berber camp and a few market barters under your belt, you’ll feel like a local in no time.

G Adventures Morocco on a Shoestring Reviews

Experience all that Morocco has to offer!

This Morocco on a Shoestring tour with G Adventures for two weeks marked my first ever tour I did on my own. I am an avid traveller and have visited many countries solo with the freedom on doing things that I want to do, and so I was a little sceptical on joining a tour - and how am I glad I did!

I had the best time seeing beautiful Morocco and made new friends for life! Morocco is a huge country and immensely diverse with multiple languages spoken. We ventured Morocco to various parts from the Sahara desert and Atlas Mountains to Marrakesh in central area, and further up to Essaouira in the northern coast close to Europe.

We saw some stunning, out-of-this world sights that I couldn't have ever imagined and participated in fun activities like camel riding in the Sahara, visiting ancient mudbrick city of Ait Benhaddou, cooking traditional tagine dish in our cooking class, and listening to beautiful live music in our Sahara camp sleeping under the stars. Abdul, our tour guide, is incredibly helpful, humble and friendly. We felt absolutely safe and comfortable in the tour knowing we are in good hands.

Almost everyone in our tour came solo and from various ages. We all got along from the very first day to the very last when it became hard to say goodbye and go on separate ways. One year later, I am still in touch with many of them, and have met up again in various countries ever since Morocco!

I had the best two weeks being on an adventure around Morocco, I would do it all again in a heartbeat! Would highly recommend this trip to all!
