About Morocco

The ongoing turmoil affecting the value of Sterling means that holidays in the Euro-zone are costing UK travellers more, with many airports offering Euros on 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.

Few destinations can offer Morocco's variety of scenery and experiences and Rediscover the World offers a fully tailor-made holiday service with a thorough knowledge of the country and its people. Whether you are looking for a self-drive itinerary, a private journey with one of our excellent English-speaking drivers, hiking in the Atlas Mountains, staying in a fabulous traditional riad or a kasbah or a Bedouin camp under the starlit skies in the Sahara, there is truly something for everyone and we are the experts in making your arrangements come to life.

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 a museum or an art gallery, trying some traditional cookery, experiencing a hammam or simply spending a day with the friendly Berber people.

What does Rediscover the World offer?

During our frequent visits we personally choose and keep updated a portfolio of riads and small, boutique hotels across Morocco. We have travelled from the fabulous Imperial cities, to the stunning coastal resorts, through the dramatic Atlas Mountains and as far south as the Sahara and the great southern roads. This wealth of knowledge enables us to put together a personalised holiday for you, combining your choice of travel options, accommodation, activities and, of course, the overall pace of the journey. In additional to the well-known places many of the locations we recommend are still relatively undeveloped providing you with unique 'off the beaten track' experiences. We also offer a vast 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 have arranged holidays to Morocco for individuals and groups from all over the world, including company incentive programmes. We 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 24 hour assistance and information service whilst in Morocco.

Rediscover Trekking - be independent with confidence !

For over 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. The Southern region of Morocco with its kasbahs and easy access to the Sahara has grown 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 & Private Journeys

We are proud of the expertise we offer helping customers putting together practical and interesting itineraries to travel around Morocco; to begin the process we include on our website some of the most popular routes as examples. 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

"Seeing the Sahara and experiencing sunset in this magical and barren place. Our guide for the Marrakech walking tour was lovely and knowledgeable and showed up some truly wonderful sites. Our guide/driver down to the Sahara, Wadii, was simply amazing. His humour and friendliness were infectious and every moment of the trip was pure magic. I would recommend him a million times over for any kind of trip in Morocco, be it a desert adventure or trip around Marrakech."

"Everything worked like clockwork. The drivers and guides were punctual, very kind and informative. We had good advice about the places we stayed from them and the riad staff. We enjoyed everything about the trip. Thank you very much!"

"My wife and I made a journey through Morocco during February. We decided that using trains and staying at riads would form a central part of our journey theme and are awfully glad we did. Our main advice and booking was aided by Andy and Dawn, Rediscover the World UK. We had a number of requests for guidance, all of which were met with patient, knowledgeable and practical responses. One city only offered very expensive options for a guide and we were left in no doubt that it was expensive and alternative solutions found. This is the mark of a good agent/adviser. One city had considerable restrictions on available accomodation owing to a music festival and still they managed to find something suitable. There was a lot of work involved in solving this, which we appreciate."

"All the accommodation was great and very helpful friendly staff. The guide the hotel arranged for us in the atlas mountains was brilliant and the lunch he arranged for us was lovely. Transfers were always on time and drivers very friendly. "

"We had the most amazing holiday and enjoyed every second (well almost- the last half hour on the camel was torture!) and would like to thank you so much for organizing everything, including the upgrades. We would have no hesitation in recommending Rediscover the World (and Riad Hikaya) and will certainly travel with you again."

"We cannot praise enough our main driver and guide Mostapha El Ghazi who is an excellent choice for families as he loves old and young alike, is personable, warm, friendly and wise and became a good friend who we were sad to say goodbye to when we were dropped off at Essaouira. We shall keep in touch and feel he is a very special person, inspirational with his kind and gentle view of the world - we had an insight into trekking the Atlas Mountains and the peaceful Berber lifestyle. We learnt a lot from him and were humbled by his altruism. This made it more than the usual holiday - a real eye opener for our teenage daughters! We can not recommend him highly enough for English/French/Spanish/Arabic speaking families."

"Thank you for one of the best holidays I've had in years! Everything went smoothly from start to finish. All the transfers were waiting for us on time and were very friendly and efficient. Both the hotels were excellent with an incredibly high level of service. It was wonderful to be able to explore these fascinating cities, knowing that our accommodation and travel requirements had been arranged so expertly for us. I have no hesitation in recommending your company and hope to travel to other destinations with you in future."

"I think it is worth re-iterating what an awesome holiday we had in Morocco. Every aspect of the planning was good, well thought through, and matched to our needs. You know the country really well and that helped us to have the most fabulous holiday. It was a holiday of a lifetime for us, it has provided the most wonderful memories,and it lived up to the billing. Thank you again."

J White, UK, May 2018

"Morocco is an amazing place, people are so friendly and the landscapes are biblical. We loved it and want to go back. Thank you for pitching the holiday just right for us and for making everything easy. It is really appreciated."
