As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetThe very ethos of our style of travel is responsible; small groups on fully escorted tours, experiencing the very best of a region, a culture and a landscape, with a friendly local hand guiding the way. Our itineraries are designed to give our travelers real life experiences without compromising the part of the world we are exploring; to travel responsibly is at the heart of our commitment as a global tour operator.
We believe that responsible travel is about the attitude you take with you and the choices you make when traveling - to respect and benefit local people, their cultures, economy and the environment. From the colourful, chaotic medinas to the moody desert landscape, Morocco is a land filled with wonder and rich culture.
Steps will be taken throughout your trip to further reduce our environmental impact while in country. Small measures can make a big difference to the overall picture and you will notice hopefully little actions as we go. For example, all travelers in the group will be encouraged to travel with refillable water bottles and purification tablets rather than purchasing water in plastic bottles to minimise waste and your group leader will also be on hand to advise on the responsible discarding of rubbish throughout the trip, recycling wherever possible.
PeopleTasked with bringing this to life, will be your professional local group leader. All our ‘on trip’ recruitment comes from the local community, so team you are with will all be Moroccan from you leader, to your driver, to your camelteers and overnight hosts, and all are keen for you to experience the best of their country through its locations, people, culture and food! Our local team not only gives our travelers a fantastic insight into the country and a snap shot of day to day life, but it also puts valuable financial resources back into the local economy, creating training and job opportunities and supporting local businesses. We source produce locally throughout the trip, eat at local restaurants and encourage our travelers to purchase souvenirs from local artisans.
Your group leader will also encourage and advise your group when it comes to respecting local sensibilities, a key indicator that often marks out responsible travelers from many of the ‘tourist herd’. Morocco is a very conservative country, particularly outside of the cities and modest clothing that covers shoulders and longer trousers as an alternative to shorts is appropriate dress. This itinerary visits rural regions such as the M’Goun Valley and Midelt as well as important religious sites including the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, factors which should be considered when packing for this trip!
The comfortable accommodations we stay in on this trip are all very traditional properties, reflective of Moroccan culture and style. Most are privately owned, from our Saharan desert camp where it’s not unusual to be entertained by our hosts’ traditional lively music, to the small gite we walk to the Atlas Mountains, to the hotels we use in the bigger cities. This means that we can ensure again that our visit is supporting local economies and not going to larger corporations.
