FAQ ABOUT TRAVELING TO MOROCCO

  • Is Morocco expensive to visit?

Morocco can be an affordable place to visit for sure. Depends on what are you looking for you choose a budget. I visit Morocco twice – once on a backpacker budget for 5 days, another time on a mid-budget for 2 weeks. I spent approximately $250 during my first visit, including an overnight desert trip (that actually sucked the most money out of my budget) and plenty of souvenirs like leather goods, nuts, and spices.

  • Is Morocco safe to visit?

Morocco isn’t a place free of crime. There are plenty of petty crimes such as pickpocketers and you could get robbed in a dark alley of the medina at night. Therefore, you need to take necessary precautions and use your common sense when visiting Morocco.

That said, I’m one of a few travel bloggers who disagree with the majority saying that Morocco isn’t safe to visit alone. I think Morocco is totally fine for anyone, even a solo female traveler. You just need to learn very quickly not to look or smile at vendors or peddlers and say “no” when they ask you to come in.

It’s totally all right to walk around on your own, and I was never physically or verbally harassed. Especially if you avoid flashy jewelry, skimpy branded clothes and watch out for scams. Morocco is greater than the minor irritations and after my two trips I’ll be definitely coming back again!

  1. everybody should enjoy traveling and enjoying landscapes of Morocco for it is considered as one of the most touristic countries. I personally Like this charming country as It consists of mountains, desert as well as old and historical cities. Traveling is about choosing the good direction and the good service.

  2. I would like recommendation on a driver and luxury tent camp at the Merzouga desert. Is morrocostour.com reliable. Which tours are reliable and trustworthy?

  3. Hi Anna,

    My husband and I are planning to go on a week trip to Morocco this October 2019 i.e; (Casablanca-Marrakech-Fes-Chefchaouen).

    We are skipping the desert tours/camel riding/hiking. We prefer to do the sightseeing & shopping instead.

    May I ask, in your opinion, is it recommended to get a full guided tour throughout the 7days6nights stay in Morocco?

    Or is it advisable to rent a car and drive throughout the trip?

    Thanks in advance!

    • It really depends on your travel style. I’ve never had a guide with me 24/7, neither did my friends who went to Morocco. On my second trip I rented a car and was fine, but it’s not a must – you could use trains and buses as well.

  4. Hi there dear Anna,
    Thanks for sharing interesting Morocco travel ideas in your own perspective. We are a couple, but never been out of the country and planning a trip to Morocco for about a week-long on our vacation holiday. Heard that it is possible to catch some of the most amazing highlights of the country within a week. But what are the best things to do?. Is that a safe country to travel?. Is there any easy way to get some of the most highlights of the country for couple travelers?. How about planning to reach there in late August until early September?. Is that a good month to travel?.
