FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I have to get a visa for Morocco?

You don't need a visa for Morocco in most cases. You can find visa requirements here.

What's included in the trip?

All the details about inclusions and exclusions are provided in the full-itinerary brochure. This trip is almost all-inclusive, with very few exceptions. Alcoholic and soft drinks are not included. All activities mentioned in the itinerary are included, including the airport transfer upon arrival.

Can you adapt to vegetarian/vegan, gluten-free, or lactose-free diets?

We strive to make our trips accessible to all dietary preferences. However, due to the nature of the trip and the local cuisine, options can sometimes be limited. In the case of Morocco, being a meat-heavy country, the further you get from major cities, the more limited the options become as we eat at local restaurants and homes. Vegetarians can enjoy Moroccan salads and vegetable tagines, which are commonly available, although they might become repetitive. Nevertheless, let us know in advance, and we will do our best to ensure that our local partners create the best dining experience for you. It's also worth mentioning that we'll spend a considerable amount of time in the medinas of Fez and Marrakech, where fresh meat and fish are prominently displayed in the market stalls, and whole lambs hang from the ceilings.

Will there be shopping opportunities during the trip?

In Morocco, it's common for individuals to receive commissions for bringing customers to stores, particularly in the medinas of Marrakech and Fez. While these encounters can sometimes lead to great finds, they can also be overwhelming and exhausting. To ensure you have the chance to explore the centuries-old artisanal work in Morocco's medinas and enjoy your shopping experience without pressure, we'll fairly compensate the staff at each workshop, store, and showroom we visit, regardless of whether you make a purchase or not. Our guides will not take you to unplanned shopping stops or steer you towards stores where they receive commissions. If we visit an artisan's workshop or showroom, it will be solely based on the craftsmanship of the artisans working there. Whenever possible, we'll prioritize female cooperatives or businesses.

How fit do I need to be for this trip?

This trip is actually quite active, with lots of walking involved as we explore the cities. We'll also spend a few hours in the car because the distances between the main cities are quite long. You should be mobile and fit enough to leisurely walk for about 4 hours on most days and aim for more than 10,000 steps per day during the walking tours in cities. There will also be quite a few stairs, both in the riads where we'll eat and stay, as well as in some of the towns and medinas.

Can I have a room to myself?

All the costs mentioned are based on sharing a room with another guest, with twin bedding. We'll pair you with another solo female traveler on the trip. If you'd prefer to have your own room, there will be a single supplement of 990 EUR.

I want to bring my partner on the trip. Can I?

This is actually a small group trip specifically designed for women traveling on their own. However, if you'd like to bring a female friend, partner, or family member, they are absolutely welcome! Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate male travelers on own trips.

I want to bring my daughter. Can I?

If your daughter is above the age of 18, we would be thrilled to have her join us.

How do you empower women in Morocco?

Empowering our guests, members, and local women in the destinations we visit is our main mission. We love creating connections and having conversations with a diverse range of local women. On this trip, you will be guided by a woman guide, who is one of the few female guides in Morocco. We'll also engage local women's help throughout the trip and visit cooperatives led by women. Additionally, we will donate 5% of the proceeds to Amal's women foundation in Marrakech, which supports women in vulnerable situations.

How does this trip help local communities in Morocco?

We truly believe that this trip can make a positive impact on local communities in Morocco. That's why we partner with local travel companies who are passionate about supporting their communities. By staying in locally owned hotels, eating at local restaurants, and sharing meals with local families, we can ensure that we benefit the people who call Morocco home.

What medication do I need to take for my trip to Morocco?

Since we'll be exploring more remote parts of the country and healthcare practices can vary, we recommend visiting your doctor before the trip. They can provide any necessary vaccinations, such as tetanus, and ensure you have all the medications you need. It's also a good idea to carry the official prescriptions for your medications, as you may be asked to show them at the border.

What should I pack for this adventure?

Our trip to Morocco take place in Spring, when the weather is mild. However, keep in mind that temperatures can vary depending on the altitude, landscapes, and regions we'll be visiting. We suggest packing in layers so you're prepared for changing temperatures. During the day, temperatures near the coast and in desert areas can reach 30 degrees Celsius/ 86 Farenheit, but at night, they can drop to around 10 degrees Celsius/ 50 Farenheit. The sun in Morocco is quite strong, so don't forget to pack sunscreen and a hat. You may also want to bring a swimsuit to enjoy the hotel's swimming pools, as well as a fleece or jacket for the cooler evenings outdoors.

What happens if I get sick?

We understand that getting sick while traveling alone in a foreign country can be worrisome. That's why we require all our guests to have comprehensive travel and medical insurance that includes international evacuation. In the unlikely event that you fall sick during the trip, we will take you to the nearest medical facility so you can receive the necessary care. Additionally, one of our local partner staff will be there to assist you with translations and anything else you may need.

What travel and medical insurance should I get?

While the cost of medical healthcare in Morocco is generally more affordable than in other countries like the US/ Europe, having travel and medical insurance is mandatory for our trips. We highly recommend getting the most comprehensive coverage available, which includes international evacuation.
