Morocco is best explored in spring (mid-March to May) as the landscape is lush and beautiful and the weather is mild. The temperature is also very pleasant in autumn (September to October).
Morocco is a safe destination to visit but like many other countries, pickpockets and scam artists target tourists.
The Moroccan currency is called the dirham, which is divided into 100 centimes and is often abbreviated as Dh. An exchange control in Morocco means that you are not allowed to import or export the Moroccan dirham.
Both men and women should dress conservatively and cover their shoulders. Outside of the main cities, the people are more conservative, so we recommend also covering your legs.
The official language spoken in Morocco is Darija (Moroccan Arabic) and many of the locals speak French and English.
Took care of every single detail from prior to our arrival in Cario until we we're dropped of at the airport a week later.
Our hotels, tours, meals, and tour group we're all wonderful.
Our tour guide was wonderful!
The price was great and the people wonderful!
Trip booked through Groupon at a Great offer price - Encounters was nothing but professional from the start. I even purchased insurance - extra days and got the best flights from my local airport- Great experience
Anthony has been a pleasure to work with and when he is not available, other members of the team respond in a timely manner. I have booked a total of 6 trips since December 2013 and plan to book more to fill my bucket list.
There was a lot of communication from the beginning. The encounters staff was very responsive and the tour guide was great and very accommodating. Encounters was also able to help me with last minute changes to my itinerary while I was on the trip.
I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
Everything was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and liked that we were interested in what he was telling us. We were lucky to be in a group with like minded people who also wanted to stay in places longer of which our guide accommodated. Only negative thing was the sitting train. Best to just take the flying option. Train was not bad but has no services, no alcohol, and breakfast was all carbs and an egg. Egypt really seems to like their breads and pastries....

Morocco is officially known as the Kingdom of Morocco and is a unitary sovereign state positioned in Northwest Africa. The country is characterised by a rugged mountain landscape, lengthy stretches of desert and a coastline along the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Morocco is part of the Arab League, the African Union and the Union for the Mediterranean. It has the fifth largest economy in Africa.
The capital of Morocco is Rabat and the second largest city is Casablanca. It is also one of the native homelands of the indigenous Berber people - an ethnic group indigenous to North Africa.
The king of Morocco holds vast executive and legislative powers, as Morocco is a constitutional monarchy with an elected parliament. The government can exercise executive power, but the king can dissolve parliament
The predominant religion of Morocco is Islam and the official languages are Arabic and Berber. Berber was the native language before the Arab conquest in the 600s AD. The Moroccan dialect of Arabic, commonly referred to as Darija, is also spoken, as is French.
With a Mediterranean climate, the weather in the country can be compared to California. The coastal plains remain moderate in temperature throughout the summer as a result of the cold Canary Current off the Atlantic Coast.
Tourism is an important sector in the Moroccan economy and the industry focuses on the country's culture, history and coast. The Moroccan government continues to invest in developing the tourism industry further.
