Frequently asked Tour Questions

What type of hotels are included in the tour?


All the hotels in the tour are 4 star hotels, such as the Ramada chain, which include a tasty buffet breakfast, conference facilities for our daily classrooms, & modern ammenities such as wireless wifi, etc. The exact names of the hotels will be revealed about 1 months before the tour starts, as it depends on the final number joining and availability.




How many persons in each room? Can I have a single room if travelling alone?


The base price includes sharing a room with a second person. If you would like to have a private single room, you can add 120 pounds to the price.




What time should I arrive or leave?


You can arrive any time on the first day of the tour, as it will be a relaxing day at your leasiure. We will have introductions session ta night. You can also leave any time on the last day of the tour. It is also possible for you to extend your trip on either the begining or end of the tour if you like to stay longer.




Do you offer pick up from Casablanca airport? Can I use local taxi?


We offer both pick-up and drop-off from Casablanca interntional airport (Muhammed V), but only on the first and last days of the tour (You will need to send us your flight dates and numbers to arrange this). If you arrive or leave on different days, you can use the train or a taxi from the airport. To get from the airport into Casablanca or vice versa, the most efficient way is to take the ONCF train, the airport train station name is Aéoport Mohamed V, which is at the airport basement level. The trains depart hourly to the city starting from 04:00 to 23:45 of the day (if going from city to airport, it's from 03:00 to 22:00). The train schedule is available at the ONCF website in French. A single 2nd class ticket is 43 Dirhams (as of January 2017). There are 5 stations at this airport train line: Aéoport Mohamed V, L'Oasis, Mers Sultan, Casa Voyageurs and Casa Port, full journey takes 45 min. If you arrive too late for the train, a taxi into the city is a flat rate of 300DH according to the information desk; asking the taxi drivers gets a rate of 350DH. The journey to near the Medina takes around 45 minutes unless you arrive particularly early or late in the evening. Note: there are 3-4 ATMs once you exit the arrivals area of the airport, past the customs and immigration area, but right before you go outdoors. You may have to walk to the left by 50 meters to find the ATMs, past the ticket and ground services desks.




Can I arrive a few days earlier or remain a few days later?


Yes of course. You can extend your hotel stay on either arrival or departure. Just write it in the "special requests" space on the booking page.




How many people are in each bus?


The max capacity for the bus is 50, but our groups are often smaller so we could give individual attention. The buses are VIP, air-conditioned, and large enough to provide enough comfortable space for everyone.




Are meals included in the tour cost?


The tour includes a breakfast buffet every day of your stay. Other meals are to be purchased seperaterely as to give our attendants maximum flexibility and variety according to their budgets. Morocco is a Muslim country, so all food is Halal, and food is extremely cheap by Western standards, with lots of variety from Moroccan, Arab, and Western cuisines.




Do you arrange flight bookings?


To keep the tour cost as low as possible and accomdate all types of travellers, our price only includes land services. If you want to search for flights, we recommend google.com/flights as it is the cheapest flight search engine and the most advanced.




Can a sister travel alone without a Mahram (Guardian)?


It is permissible for sisters to travel in safe groups insha'Allah, and Alhamdulillah we will have many sisters on our tour group. This is also the opinion that is followed in Saudi Arabia during Hajj times, as women are allowed to travel in Hajj groups.




What time should I book my flight on the final day of the tour?


The final day of the tour is a free-day, therefore, feel free to book your return flights any time on the last day. If you wish to extend your stay to enjoy the local sights and attractions, you may do so in the "special requests" space on the booking form.




Do I need a visa to visit Morocco?


If you are from an EU member country, or have a passport from English-speaking countries (USA, Canada, Australia, Malaysia, etc), then you don't to apply for Visa. You get a 90 day visa on arrival. If you are from other parts of the world, then you may need to apply for a visa from the Moroccan embassy in your country. It is your full responsibility to do so.




What is the best way to get the local currency?


The best way to get local money is to use the ATM machine and choose the charge in local currency. Your bank charges much lower rates than exchange offices. It is also recommended that you bring some dollars, euros, or UK pounds as emergency money. However, if you would like to exchange the cash you have for the local currency, avoid the airport exchange office, even if they advertise "0% comission", as they will make more than 10% on the unfavourable exchange rate. Instead, exchange from the local foreign currency shops in the city. Observe the difference between the "buy" and "sell" rate, and if the difference is small, it means you have a good rate (1-3% difference of internet rate max). If you travel frequenctly, useful way is to use a multicurrency debit card, such as transferwise, which gives you almost the same real time internet rate close to 0.5% percent. Here is the link to sign up: https://transferwise.com/u/waleede3




What clothes should I bring to the tour?


That depends on the season as explained below: Summer: Light cloth, sunscreen, swimsuit, and an umbrella if you would like to block the sun. You may also carry or purchase a hand fan for noon time (although we will try to avoid peak heat times by being in shaded areas, air-conditioned bus, or lunch in an air conditioned restaurant). Winter: Winters are mild (20 to 16 Celsius, or 70 to 60 Fahrenheit). Bring a few layers to adjust to the varrying temperatures throughout the day (shirt, sweater, light and heavy jacket). It is also important to have a warm hat and neck scarf, as mountainous areas could be extremely cold. There are occasioal mild rains, so you may bring an umbrella or a rain jacket with hoodie if you wish.

Spring or Autumn: Not hot and not cold. It is perfect :) The weather is generally warm in those seasons. Light clothes and occasionally light jacket for cloudy nights are recommended. Keep extra warm items handy (hat, scarf, etc) for the mountainous areas.
