Other information

Important note on Ramadan

As many Middle Eastern countries are of Islamic faith, it is important to note many restaurants and shops will either be closed or operating on reduced hours during Ramadan. As a result, some optional and included activities on your trip may be affected. Ramadan, which dates vary depending on your year of travel, is an incredibly important and sacred month for Muslims. When equipped with some basic knowledge, you’ll have the chance to immerse yourself in this special tradition and experience all its highlights.

Airport transfers

Head out of Casablanca Airport to find your Topdeck Rep. They’re the one with the Topdeck sign outside your arrival terminal!

    Was super happy with the whole trip, had an amazing group and tour guide Mouna. The Sahara was a highlight for sure. Some of the accomodation could have been better. The desert camp and the stay the day before the desert were exceptional. The accomodation in Chefchauoen was great too. Our guide was super informative and interacted really great with the group.

    Trio was great and very fun, some scheduling things that felt like we travelled more than saw things although I guess that’s to be expected.

  • Grace December 2023

    Amazing trip! Couldn't fault it at all. Our tour guide Jaouad was friendly and very informative. Our coach driver Khalid was always happy to help and really put the icing on the cake when, at the end of the trip, he bought us all a model of a small camel as a souvenir!

    The accommodation was much better than expected, certainly comfortable enough for a night or two. The range of cities we explored was fantastic and it was really helpful to have a guide to orientate us and provide recommendations in each place we visited. The Sahara Desert was everyone's favourite and the sunset camel ride was spectacular.

    Even though there were days of long driving, these were some of my favourite days as the scenery was stunning! Seeing the countryside in Morocco as well as the cities really made it feel like we were seeing the country as a whole, rather than just glimpses from touristy hotspots. The journeys were manageable as we never drove for more than 2hr 30 mins without a break and these travel days were often broken up by having a nice traditional lunch out or seeing some sights.

    Morocco is my favourite country that I have explored - thanks Topdeck!
