Our happy travellers rave about Morocco

I was so impressed

Rabat was definitely a highlight at the beginning of the tour. I was so impressed with what I was shown and what I learned. It set the tone for the whole tour. Essaouira was also another highlight with a wonderful, knowledgeable guide. The whole tour was very enjoyable!

Very supportive!

Enjoyed all of the colours in the souks, medinas, gardens, palaces and restaurant venues. Loved all the Moroccan architecture and the friendliness of the locals (not just our guides). They were welcoming, helpful and caring. I was wearing a sling on my arm for much of the trip an locals said “heal well” or “hope you have a good recovery”. Very supportive!

Having everything included was fantastic!

Sahara Desert night & the camel ride were big highlights. Having free time and flexibility is super nice. Having everything included was fantastic!

Well done Approach!

My first time travelling alone (without my hubby). Any concerns or fears I had never happened, as I felt safe and well taken care of the entire time I was in Morocco. Well done Approach!

Essaouira was beautiful

The Group Guru Caroline worked very hard to keep us all happy, healthy and safe. We would travel with her again! Our highlights were Val d’argon vineyard (tour and lunch), the sunrise camel ride, walking through the Blue City of Chefchaouen (awesome hotel and meals that day too), and driving through the mountains. Not to be left out, Essaouira was beautiful: we like the atmosphere in the medina!

Overall: Loved it!

Felt safe the entire time. I loved the Fez hammam & market. Also the Sahara camel ride & luxury overnight camp. Essaouira – a great place to end the tour – loved the markets! The large bus allowed guests to get some privacy & space. Accommodation by both Amelie & Lufti was wonderful – they made a great team! Overall: Loved it!

I wouldn’t have seen Morocco any other way!

The size of the tour group was perfect – not too big, so friendly and manageable. Essaouira was a nice way to slow down before flying home. Enjoyed the opportunity to visit a local tour guide’s family home. Fez tile making and tannery were memorable. The start times for the day were very reasonable. Our guides, Amelie & Lotfi, and our bus driver, Karim, made me feel welcome, comfortable, and safe at all times. They worked to accommodate everyone’s needs and requests and were flexible when needed. I wouldn’t have seen Morocco any other way!

We have recommended Approach to our friends

My wife and I recently returned from an amazing trip to Morocco with Approach Tours.  Morocco is a country of changing landscapes, fabulous food, changing colours and a rich history. Approach Tours did an excellent job of showing and explaining this diversity. Our Approach Guru, Amelie, local guide, Lofti and bus driver Karem went above and beyond to make sure all the groups needs were met. The Approach all-inclusive concept is the way to go. No worries for the traveller, just relax and enjoy. We have recommended Approach to our friends and we will definitely be travelling with them in the future.

This trip was very memorable, and I would go back again.

I saw pictures posted by Approach Tours of Morocco on Facebook and I made a snap decision to book. So glad that I did. Recently returned and had an amazing time. We had both an Approach guide, Amelie, and a local Moroccan guide, Lofti, very knowledgeable and interesting.  Amelie worked to make sure that everyone was taken care of from diet requirements to listening to the feedback provided by the travellers and did her best to accommodate requests. We covered a lot of ground in 14 days and saw what many would expect to see when visiting this country: medinas, riads, ruins, souks, mountains, cities, desert, ocean and camels.  This trip was very memorable, and I would go back again.
