Why the Tour Itinerary is not Showed ?

At Morocco Private Tours we work quite hard and spend much time to create private and innovative itineraries off the beaten track and away from the well-trodden routes. We specialise in designing carefully crafted tour programmes that give keen travellers the opportunity to see and discover some of the most fascinating and exotic places Morocco has to offer. In order to protect our hand-crafted tour programmes and trek itineraries we have designed, the detailed programmes of our tours and treks are not showed on our Website because there are many non-professional local companies and lazy tour guides who copy the itineraries we have designed.

Unfortunately, these people don’t want to make any effort and rack their brain to create and plan their own programmes. They just want to earn money quickly and easily, thinking only of their own benefits more than those of the clients and they pay almost no attention to show the beautiful Morocco the way it should be seen. Most of the time, when they lead a group of tourists these people think about taking them to shops and bazaars where they will get commissions from the store owners on purchases of the tourists. So there is no enough time left for them to introduce the must-see attractions Morocco has to offer and show the real Morocco the way it should be seen.

Tour Leader and Berber Team

All Morocco Private Tours groups are is entrusted to skilled Berber tour guides and competent staff who will take care of all services from beginning to end of tour. You will be accompanied by a professional team who represents the real image of our company and consists mainly of Berber native people. The success of your trip, your safety and your welfare are our main objectives. The friendly Berbers who accompanying you will work hard to ensure you discover Morocco in a way it should be seen, offering you rewarding and remarkable experiences and above all unforgettable memories you will treasure for a long time. We help you discover not only the landscape and must-see attractions but also the local lifestyle, traditions and customs and give you a real glimpse of current everyday local life.
