The Great Mosque at Cassablanca.
They were all excellant. They told us all that we wanted to know and advised us about the going rate for things at the SOuks. They all displayed an excellant knowlege of the area and in two cases we were being welcomed by their friends when we walked past.
Yes. We were told which businesses to avoid and where had a good record of behaviour towards staff and animals. We were advised about what to give people as a thank you and local guides were employed in Fez, Rabet, Volubius and Marrakech.
I did. People were willing to talk and not just to get something from me this time!
If somebody want to visit an African country, Morocco should be the first. It has the interesting buildings and markets from Africa, but the standard of cleanliness and tidyness is more to Spainish standards than African.

Visiting a Berber Market/Eating in a local restaurant with Moroccans.
Excellent service from tour leader and local guides. Could not fault them.
Yes, as the group spent money in local shops and restaurants. Also taught us about their culture and religion. I undrstand the country better now.
Go with the flow and don't compare things with home. Respect the culture and ways of the locals. Be open and friendly and you will be welcomed as a friend.

The complete tour was memorable though if I was to narrow to one thing it down the highlight would have been visiting Fes. I enjoyed travelling in a small group as well and experiencing the culture of Morocco and its people.
The tour leader (Samir) was excellent and could not be faulted and was a great embassador for his own country, Morocco.
Most definitely. This was obvious with the use of local guides in the different cities/areas we visited.
Yes. I enjoyed the culture of Morocco, its people and the food (we eat mostly where the locals eat which was great; if you eat where the locals are eating you know it is good!).
Go with no pre conceived ideas and just embrace the culture of the country you are in.

I especially liked the Saadian Tombs in Rabat, the Medina and the Bath Museum in Fès, the ruins in Volubilis. In his turn, my husband enjoyed walking around Casablanca, the Bath Museum in Fès and the Medina. In Marrakesh we both loved the ruins of the Baadi Palace (great place to watch the sunset) and the El Bahia Palace, where we were lucky to find an interesting exhibition of contemporary art.
The tour leader was great, very attentive to our requests and needs. We would like to suggest though more free time in each place. Most often we took longer routes which were more picturesque. Since travelling in a car is somewhat tiresome I think it would have been best to take faster highways and have more time in each place we stayed. Other than that, all of our restaurants were pre-selected by our guide. I think it would have been best to have more freedom in our choice of food at mealtimes. Though we liked Moroccan food, being vegetarian there was never a wide variety of choice for us in these restaurants.
Yes. We stayed in local hotels, ate in locally owned restaurants, and all ours guides were Moroccan. We also tipped generously.
Yes, amazingly so. Especially walking around and loosing ourselves in the Medina of Fez, and in Casablanca, where we could really observe the bustle of everyday life. We also managed to buy some Moroccan literature in the "Librairie Française" in our first day in Casablanca, and read it along the tour, which gave us interesting insights into the local culture.
We have already highly recommended Morocco and the Imaginative Traveller Tour to friends and family. We would advise other travellers to lose themselves in the old cities, to relax in the beautiful courtyards and gardens, and to try the delicious pastries.
