With the popularity of travelling overseas for holidays these days many people get caught up in the traditional eastern countries and miss out on a memorable trip to some of the other unique and distinctive small countries such as Morocco. Yet tours of Morocco reveal a culture that is traditional, colourful and totally unlike anything that most Westerners would even think of. Going to Morocco plunges you back in time as you see how life was lived and work was done many centuries ago. The Berber traders still ply their wares in the marketplace the same as they have done for hundreds of years.
The flavours of the food are still the same as they were in those ancient times. The dress and the customs are still basically the same. However, if you have never been overseas or to Morocco, you may be hesitant about setting off on your own or even with a friend. From what we hear on the television, it seems very easy to get into trouble in some foreign countries. The ideal way to explore such places safely is to go on a guided tour set up by people who are experienced in the travel industry.
You can then have peace of mind that you can see all the most popular places safely. Tours of Morocco come in different types. You can get the introductory small group tour that will give you an overview of the country from the arid plains to the historic coastal areas. Elijah tours will see the marketplaces and medinas the Arab quarters and be able to taste the food. Then there are the private guided tours that you can take with a minimum of two people. You have an airconditioned vehicle with a private driver and your own guides for the whole time, with overnight stops in the mountains and the desert.
You can also get a private tour that takes you through all the major attractions in Rabat the capital, Fez, Marrakech and other places. This is a shorter tour of days but you have a private driver and vehicle and also your own guides. Such tours are excellent ways to be introduced to a country you are not familiar with. Taking one of the guided tours of Morocco is something a little different that you are sure to enjoy and having a guided tour will ensure that you have peace of mind knowing that you will see the best of the country without getting into difficulties.
