Depending on the sort of accommodations you need or the alterations you would want to make to your personalized trip, we are completely adaptable. However, if any modifications are made at least two weeks before your trip with us, please inform us.

Actually, it could be quite the opposite. Our team makes sure to select the best quality accommodations for our clients, and those tend to get booked full pretty quickly, that’s why it’s not always easy for us to accommodate last-minute bookings.

To avoid such incidents, we strongly advise you to book your tour with us early on, so that we will be able to pick out the best accommodations for you and offer you an unforgettable Morocco experience.

Morocco’s economy is heavily reliant on tourism to meet its financial needs. To put it another way, the Moroccan government wants tourists to feel comfortable and secure while spending their holiday and money in the country.

As a result, it devotes a significant amount of resources, particularly human resources, to ensure that all tourists are secure while in Morocco; this includes tourist police and highly qualified guides who have been accredited by the government after undergoing training.

In terms of extremism and crime rates, we can state that the occurrence of such crimes is similar to that of many European countries, as evidenced by several statistics: low and uncommon.

You could enjoy traveling on your own once you’ve learned your way around and been acquainted with the local culture. You’ll be OK as long as you’re comfortable with it and stay away from the shady areas.

It will also allow you to save some money. However, some destinations require the assistance of a professional guide; you will most likely realize this once you are in such a location, particularly that outside of towns, such as the desert, where you will need a guide to assist you with camels and other items.

We’ll ask you for a deposit to secure your tour with Morocco Arhal Tours once we’ve confirmed an itinerary that works for you/your group (tours shown on our website can be changed based on your needs). We ask that you pay the remaining balance of your trip reservation at the beginning of your tour in Morocco.
