We assure that the food on the trip is as good as varied.  Based on fresh local products, our chefs prepare delicious local meals like tagine & couscouss and of course the famous mint tea to sip without moderation! Please let us know upon booking if you have special diet needs.
 Shopping In the souq, Moroccan traditional markets, offer a large choice of hand crafts goods: Moroccan  slippers, Lanterns, carpets ... In most traditional shops, prices are not displayed, so It is normal to haggle. It  can be a pleasant moment sharing a cup of tea while discussing the price.

After your trip it is customary to leave a tip for your Moroccan guide, driver(s),  muleteers, camel men .... Receiving a tip is a sign of content, there are no set amounts as it depends on group  size. For an Idea : 400 Dirhams / 40 Eur per traveller for a group of 6 to 8 people,  should cover your share of  all tips for a week's trip.
