Day Trips

To travel to Morocco is often to compromise. The country is too large, too dense, too varied and has far too many beautiful things to see and do for one traveller to see it all in an often tight schedule and a tight budget. We understand this, and so we offer day trips to some of the country’s most beautiful destinations so that you can experience Morocco as best you can in your own time limit without breaking your budget.

We operate our day trips mainly out of the city of Marrakech, as many of the destinations of our day trips are simply close to here, and the city’s vibrancy often seduces travellers to call it home while visiting. However these plans can be adjusted to meet your needs and suit your timetable, as with all of our trips and itineraries.

Whether you’re in Morocco for a short time and trying to squeeze as much in as you can or just trying to fill some extra days of your holiday, we are able to organize what you need. Spent most of your time in the High Atlas? Why not get a change of scenery by travelling to Essaouria and spending and afternoon eating seafood by the souks? If you’ve pampered yourself in the steam baths and luxury hotels of Marrakech for the majority of your holiday, why not change it up by touring through Imlil and experiencing the stunning landscapes and panoramic views of this region? Or if you’re simply looking to find some peace and quiet, a trip to Cascades du Ouzoud might do the trick.

We have chosen the destinations that we have on offer currently due to their in-demand nature, their cultural significance and their beauty. These destinations can all be unwoven to tell stories of the country, the people and the land and are great for enhancing a trip to Morocco with some authentic food, unspoiled scenery or first-hand knowledge of the area. For photographers, families and solo travellers alike, these day trips are the perfect add-on for your holiday. All of them are reasonably priced to allow you to enjoy your holiday in style, spending your pocket money on local crafts or food from the rooftop terrace restaurants.

Our day trips are operated mainly by drivers who function also as guides – friendly locals with a good understanding of the area, the terrain, the culture and the other locals. This makes them not only the best choices in terms of safety and knowledge, but their first hand knowledge allows them to give you insights other travellers will not get and for them to take you places that stay closed to most of the outside world. This is why we do what we do – we want you to experience the very best of Morocco, and our guides allow us to do this for you. From when they pick you up from your hotel to when they drop you back, you’ll be enlightened and taught by, looked out for and have your needs catered to by our guides.
