About Morocco

The current turmoil affecting Sterling means that holidays in the Euro-zone are costing UK travellers more, with many airports offering a like-for-like exchange rate or even worse. As a result, holidaymakers are looking for getaways that offer better value, which makes Morocco an even more attractive destination.

Morocco truly is a land of contrasts; few destinations can offer Morocco's variety of scenery and experiences. At Rediscover Morocco we offer you our thorough knowledge of this country; whether you are looking for long sweeping beaches, lush mountain valleys, cosmopolitan, vibrant cities or small villages still following the traditional ways of life, there is truly something for everyone.

Which other country within easy reach of the UK and continental Europe offers you such an opportunity to enjoy a fabulously rich and varied holiday experience. Just imagine the possibilities ... you can be hiking or skiing in the Atlas Mountains in the morning, go shopping in the covered souks of Marrakech in the afternoon and enjoy an incredible dinner of freshly caught fish by the Atlantic coast in the evening. Make time, though, to enjoy Morocco's culture, whether it be visiting an art gallery, trying some traditional cookery, experiencing a hammam or simply spending a day with the friendly Berber people.

What does Rediscover Morocco offer?

We have many years of experience personally selecting riads and small, boutique hotels across Morocco, in its fabulous Imperial cities, its stunning coastal resorts, the dramatic Atlas Mountains and, hidden behind them, unrivalled vistas of kasbahs and the Sahara in the glorious southern region. All of these places can be part of a tailor made holiday and many are still relatively undeveloped providing you with unique 'off the beaten track' experiences. We also have a fantastic choice of trekking and desert trips and, if you only have a few days at your disposal, Morocco is close enough for a relaxing or action-packed short break.

Every year (since the 1990s) we arrange holidays to Morocco for individuals and groups from all over the world, including company incentives. We also work closely with schools and colleges arranging field trips in Morocco for tourism, hospitality and geography courses. Why not also contact us to help arrange holidays for those special occasions - honeymoons, anniversaries, "popping the question" and many more.

Why book with Rediscover the World ?

As founders of Rediscover the World we have built on our experience of living and working in Morocco for many years, in fact our connection with the country goes back to the mid 1980s. This experience, together with the knowledge gained from frequent visits, enables us to provide you with the most up-to-date and fullest possible assistance in planning your ideal holiday - we can put together any tailor-made itinerary and are happy to work within most budgets. We are fully bonded (ATOL & TTA) for your full financial security and assistance should any part of your holiday not happen entirely to plan. If you were to assemble your holiday yourself you may not have this sort of protection nor would you be able to benefit from many of our special rates and 24hr assistance and information service whilst in Morocco.

Rediscover Trekking - be independent with confidence !

For two decades Rediscover the World has been offering an exciting and comprehensive range of treks and walking holidays in the High Atlas. All the guided treks and day hikes we arrange are designed to be either individual bookings, if you have arranged other parts of your holiday already, or to be an exciting component of a larger tailor-made holiday. The freedom when booking to decide upon the start date, duration and choice of route means that our treks are very popular, particularly with those who wish to enjoy the incredible beauty of the Atlas Mountain region at their chosen pace rather than as part of a group.

Desert Adventures in Morocco's Sahara

We cannot recommend highly enough our superb selection of Sahara adventures in the south of Morocco. Each trip takes in the Berber, Bedouin culture of the region, stunning scenery, [optional] camel ride and lots of sunshine - all ultimately spending at least one night under the stars (or canvas) amongst the immense dunes of evocative places such as Erg Chebbi and Erg Lihoudi. This Southern region of Morocco with its kasbahs and easy access to the Sahara is growing in popularity so make the most of your visit to this fascinating region by including a trip into the desert as part of a fly-drive itinerary, a private journey or on a private excursion directly from Marrakech.

Fly Drives and Private Journeys

We are proud of the expertise we offer helping customers putting together practical and interesting itineraries to tour Morocco and to begin the process we include on our website some of the most popular routes. Make the most of your time in this fascinating country either on a self-drive basis or with one of our small team of excellent English-speaking drivers as a private journey. Each of these suggested holidays has a summary of the details and a full itinerary giving day by day suggestions of the routes and sightseeing options. We also include guideline costs based upon our recommended places to stay and a list of "What's Included".

We look forward to being of service.

Reviews

"We really enjoyed our trip to Morocco, the connections, accommodation and guides were all meeting or exceeding our expectations. All connections and bookings went as planned or otherwise advised on the trip. In particular we must give praise to our guide from Imlil in the High Atlas Mountains- Mohamed (?) would have to be one of the best in the business, a genuine man with a lovely family, great companion and excellent skills. His awareness of the surrounding conditions and our abilities ensured that we were always safe but also able to enjoy the experiences. On our first meeting it was the feast of Eid, which meant that original plans needed to be adjusted. Mohamed arranged for his brother to collect us and take us to his mothers house for a share of the traditional feast of lamb, a remarkable day for us. We will in future and have already recommended your group to others. Thank you from both of us."

"I booked this Morocco Holiday for a group of 10 very picky travellers. We were extremely happy with all the arrangements, accommodations and guides. A special thanks to both Andy and Dawn for being very thorough and arranging such an excellent trip."

T Beddingfield, October 2016

"The transfers all worked fine, although the drive from Immouzer to Essaouira was by a local (Agadir) taxi and so the quality of vehicle and driving was not as good as the other transfers but it all worked fine and the driver was courteous and stopped for photos etc. The other drivers were all good and drove safely. Our guide for the afternoon in Marrakech seemed a little offhand but he was quite knowledgeable etc. He of course took us to his friend to try to sell us carpets and to another, a herbalist, for hard sell, which we didn't much appreciate but realise that is part of the experience! It didn't help that we were a bit tired that first day having had a very early start! Immouzer worked out well. We did a guided walk one day (very helpful guide, Mubarack, one of the hotel staff) and a donkey ride on another. Hotel Atlas was very good but in some respects the service was a bit lacking for what claims to be a 5* hotel."

"My family and I have just returned from our trip to Morocco and I just wanted to write to you to thank you once again for all your help, patience and hard graft in organising what turned out to be a wonderful trip. Everyone was greatly impressed with all destinations and accommodation and the organisation throughout. We will definitely be using your services for future trips as well as recommending you to friends and family. "

"Our holiday was luxurious and well organised. The accommodations were all beautiful with welcoming staff. We had a fabulous introduction to morocco. Our main driver was very well informed and attentive to our needs. The service throughout and was excellent and personalised. We had lots of privacy and quiet seclusion."

A Gonzales, March 2016

" The flights and all transfers were seamless. Even the last one from Essaouira to the airport which was rather early for our hotel but the driver was waiting patiently in the street outside. All in all it was an excellent holiday and we really enjoyed visiting Morocco. The people are really friendly and we felt safe and looked after. "

"Special mention for our final stay in Marrakech (not enough room on the form!!) at Riad Kniza. We have never stayed anywhere that we have been more welcome. Truly felt like our home and the staff were WONDERFUL! Genuinely sorry to leave and will definitely be back, Location excellent, service and food exemplary, and very good value for money. A little haven in the lunacy of this amazing city. Also Kasbah Ellouze - stunning location and brilliant staff. Felt very authentic. Landscape is dramatic and hugely photogenic. Desert trip amazing - we had the camp to ourselves so it felt very personal. Would have perhaps liked to stay an extra night as the dunes are quite breathtaking. Organisation completely hassle-free. Car hire (and Neureddine, the rep) very helpful. Driving pretty much without hitch apart from one bandit incident down south (we had a heads up from your info, so managed to avoid!!) Roads excellent, especially over the Atlas. A really fantastic trip, thank you"

"The two walks were very good - our guide managed to find interesting routes staying out of the worst of the snow. Even so, it was quite difficult as in places the snow was a foot deep and we weren't really equipped for it. The sun shone though and it was amazing scenery all round. We had lunch in his house on the first day and met his family which was fun. The second day we walked up to the shrine and lunched in the sun and snow. We had a traditional hamam on our last evening which was a whole new experience and very welcome."

C Haynes, March 2016

"We loved the holiday, unfortunately we hit very bad weather and one part of the trip had to be abandoned, however the local agents handled it very well and made all the arrangements for a very luxurious alternative. We found all the local people, from the Riad owners to the car drivers, to be exceptional and most helpful. Riad El Zohar is a real gem and just perfect for a taste of Marrakech. We were very impressed with the whole organisation, thank you."

R Butcher, December 2014

"We have just got back from our trip. We had a wonderful time and thank you for all your organisation and sugegstions of places to stay - they were excellent and we especially liked the Kasbah Azul. We had an extremely nice drive called Omar and would thoroughly recommend him to other people who want someone to ferry them around - not only did he speak good English but he was also very knowledeable and took us to see some interesting places en route to the desert and back. Our next trip will be to Fez and Essaouira so we will be in touch."
