At Berber Treasures Morocco, we believe in providing our clients with the best Morocco travel service and travel tips. We know that your trip to Morocco will be much more rewarding and enjoyable if you know what to expect and prepare for your Morocco travel adventure.
- Travel only with a licensed professional Morocco tour operator like the crew here at Berber Treasures Morocco Tours. Make sure the style and standard of accommodation meets your personal needs. Understand and agree the itinerary and all inclusions. And so there aren’t any misunderstandings get it all put in writing before you set off.
- Official guides in Morocco are licensed by local Moroccan authorities. Only official guides are permitted to guide tourists in Morocco on tours of historical sites such as Volubilis and on city tours of Marrakesh or any of the other Moroccan cities. All official guides should display an official badge issued by the local authorities.
- If you only speak English make sure you request one of our English-speaking drivers, guides etc or you will miss out on a lot of interesting information and a wonderful part of your Moroccan tour experience – the ability to communicate and interact with local Moroccan people.
- You can travel to Morocco any time of the year. Taking a Morocco holiday in Spring means mild temperatures, lots of lush green countryside (desert areas excluded of course!) and lovely colourful wildflowers. As you move into Summer temperatures are on the rise peaking in July and remaining hot through August. If you like hot weather July and August is for you but think of travelling at a different time if you prefer it below 35C. Autumn (Fall) brings a return to stable, milder temperatures making it a popular for Morocco tours. And Winter is cold – you can expect snow in the High Atlas and Middle Atlas Mountains and this is where you can skiing in Morocco – but as long as you dress warmly you can have a wonderful winter holiday in Morocco.

- Yes you can travel during Ramadan. In fact this is an interesting time to travel to Morocco. You are not expected to observe the fast. You will find cafes and restaurants to eat at (but your choice during the day will be more restricted that other times of the year). Things get going a little later than usual in the morning but Moroccan’s make up for it in the evenings!
- There are no compulsory vaccinations required for travel to Morocco, but it is advisable to make sure your Tetanus and Polio are up-to-date. You should check with your doctor any specific recommendations personal to you. You can also find general health information for travellers on both the Department of Foreign Affairs website at smartraveller.gov.au and the World Health Organisation (WHO) website.
- Be sensible with your valuables and keep them secure at all times. And exercise good common sense: watch out for the mule carts and motorcycles in the medinas – they expect you to get out of their path, avoid badly lit streets at night, ask for directions if you are lost.
You will see that Moroccans are extremely hospitable and love showing visitors their country. You’ll meet plenty of friendly locals who will help you on your holiday in Morocco, but these tips here will make your trip even easier.
