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.
I have dealt with Anthony Horrobin on a number of occasions and it is like talking to an old friend on the phone. Anthony is super-efficient and will always go the extra mile to create the perfect trip.
This is our first travel through Encounters Travel and so far the arrangement is working very well. Our travel is not until April 2017 so I am more than hopeful all will continue to run as smoothly as it has so far.
My experience with Encounters was excellent from start to finish. The Tour Guide, Sheriff, was the most passionate, enthusiastic and professional guide I have ever had on a tour and his love for Egypt really made me enjoy my time so much more.
I was cautious about arriving in Egypt given the current circumstances about the country, but felt safer that I did living in London as soon as I arrived. All of the Encounters staff are very professional.
I had an amazing time on the trip. Everything was incredibly well organized and planned out to a tee. Our tour guide, Big Mo, was amazing and super knowledgeable. I couldn't have imagined a better trip to Egypt!
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

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.
