Morocco is easy on the wallet. The cost of living is low, and you don’t need to restrict yourself to hostels in order to find inexpensive lodging (though those are plentiful). We love riads, traditional Moroccan homes designed around a central courtyard; many of these have been restored into beautiful and often affordable boutique hotels. Buses and trains offer inexpensive transportation around the country (travel in second-class trains for lower fares). Cheap eats are plentiful at food stalls in the medinas or at Jemaa el-Fna Square, the famous open-air market in Marrakesh.
Morocco is a gateway to Africa and a country of dizzying diversity. Here you'll find epic mountain ranges, ancient cities, sweeping deserts – and warm hospitality.
For Westerners, Morocco holds an immediate and enduring fascination. Though just an hour’s ride on the ferry from Spain, it seems at once very far from Europe, with a culture – Islamic and deeply traditional – that is almost wholly unfamiliar. Throughout the country, despite the years of French and Spanish colonial rule and the presence of modern and cosmopolitan cities like Rabat and Casablanca, a more distant past constantly makes its presence felt. Fez, perhaps the most beautiful of all Arab cities, maintains a life still rooted in medieval times, when a Moroccan kingdom stretched from Senegal to northern Spain, while in the mountains of the Atlas and the Rif, it’s still possible to draw up tribal maps of the Berber population. As a backdrop to all this, the country’s physical make-up is extraordinary: from the Mediterranean coast, through four mountain ranges, to the empty sand and scrub of the Sahara.
Although Morocco's climate is generally hot and dry, weather can vary dramatically depending on where you are. In the south of the country (nearer the Sahara), rainfall is limited; but in the north, light rains are common between November and March. On the coast, offshore breezes provide relief from soaring summer temperatures, while the mountain regions remain cool all year round. In winter, snow falls heavily in the Atlas Mountains. Temperatures in the Sahara Desert can be both scorching during the day and freezing at night.
This trip was like a dream, everything went just perfect and as planned. Yassine was incredibly patient and accommodating, he listened to us, responded to every question we had and made sure we would be happy with our finalized itinerary. Our trip started in Casablanca, our flight was more than four hours delayed due to bad weather in Montreal, our driver Mohammed was patiently waiting for us and it was a relief to see him there and greeting us with a smile, we immediately felt welcomed and safe. He drove us all the way to Fes with a quick stop at Rabat. We spent two nights in Fes, our guide Hakim was super knowledgeable and funny, we had a great day of learning and exploring the medina. We then drove all the way to Marrakesh via Casablanca. One tip for next time, I would avoid Casablanca all together, we just spent a few hours there but with traffic in the city it was more than needed and not worth it. In Marrakesh we spent three nights but only two full days, we had an amazing time and our guide Ali was super fun to be with, he was also very accommodating with our last minute itinerary changes and just adapted to our pace. On our second day we went to Agafay desert in the afternoon, this was definitely a highlight of our trip, if you have the chance, don't miss it! From Marrakesh we drove to Essaouira, we only spent one night there and I wish we had more time, it was one of my favorite places of all. One tip is, buy all your souvenirs there, its way cheaper than any other place and they have everything. Definitely don't miss Essaouria. On our last day we drove back to Casablanca and had dinner at a fancy restaurant our driver Mohammed suggested, we had an amazing time and the food was delightful! Well, food was amazing every single day, from the most cheap to more pricey places!
All of our accommodations were unbelievable nice and charming, it was definitely a huge part of our whole experience, we mostly stayed at riads, which were the perfect selection for us. We were provided with a small cel phone for anything that we needed at any time. Our driver Mohammed was incredibly helpful and friendly, and most importantly, drove us with professionalism and great skills all around Morocco, which involved a lot of driving!
I will definitely will be using kimkim services again and would recommend to anyone planning their next adventure!
From beginning to end, we were extremely well taken care of. From our first communication, Yassine patiently helped us prepare an itinerary that was perfect for our group. Once we arrived in Morocco, everything was seamless and well organized. Our driver Mohamed was polite, helpful and charming. He helped make the long drives between cities enjoyable, and assured that we were always comfortable. We were quite pleased with the selection of riads; all three were beautiful and special, each in their own way. Guides were polite and well-informed. Ali in Marrakech did a great job choosing restaurants for us, and we had a few memorable and delicious dining experiences thanks to him.
All in all, we had an excellent trip, and were extremely satisfied with the level of service from KimKim. We would do it all over again if we could.
Thank you for an wonderful experience!!
We've spend a very good time in Morocco, our two tour guides are very patient,and easy-going. we've been to many of the tourist attractions, and those places are fantastic. People in Morocco is very enthusiastic and they welcome people from other counties. Sahara is so beautiful and the Ribs and hotel in Morocco is also very good.
We recently chose to go to Morocco on a quick week-long trip to experience as much as we can of the beauty of the country. We visited the desert (through the amazing Atlas mountains), Marrakech, Fes and Rabat. We were so fortunate to meet the brothers of Morocco Travel Land who guided us and provided wonderful tour packages (and the best drivers!) within our budget. They can provide custom tours or you can go on their website to look at existing tour schedules.
They also adapted to changes along the way. And Mohsine kept us smiling throughout - even provided us with recommendations on wonderful Moroccan musicians.
When I travel back to Morocco in the future, I will call Mohsin first to arrange for trips to the places I didn't get to!

The Moroccan Real Food Adventure was stellar. From the bustle of the medinas to the peace of the High Atlas to the delicious tagines everywhere, I felt as if I got the true "flavor" of Morocco. Our guide, Ilyas, was an absolute gem and through his love of the country I came to love it myself. I will definitely be back!
Great trip with a varied and interesting itinerary. Several highlights, particularly the hike in the mountains and camping in the Sahara. If doing this trip during winter, make sure you bring a good waterproof and several warm layers; it will get very cold at times and we also got soaked in the mountains (but it didn't spoil it; it's all part of the fun!).
Love Morocco and Moroccan people. From Turkey 🇹🇷🇲🇦💪🏽
Nina 'All together happy'

Morocco is a lovely country, with an amazing landscapes, cities, heritage, people and culture, and it is too close from my country. I really should visit Morocco in the next years. Greetings to our Moroccan neighbors from Portugal.
