Morocco Travel

What is a riad?

For those travelers who are looking to experience authentic Moroccan hospitality, we always suggest staying in a riad.

If you want to get a real taste of Moroccan culture, a traditional riad will give you an up close and personal view of Morocco. You will be able to see firsthand what some of the best food, architecture, and hospitality that Morocco has to offer.

“But what IS a riad?” you may ask, “And what is the difference between a riad and a hotel?”

These are very important questions to ask as you plan your Morocco tour!

A riad is a traditional Moroccan house, located within an ancient medina (walled city), which is designed around a central courtyard and/or garden.

Best Time to Travel To Morocco

You’ve heard amazing things about traveling to Morocco and are ready to move forward with picking the perfect time to go. You may be limited by your work schedule, kids’ school schedule, or the timing of a certain event such your wedding if you are booking a honeymoon.

However, if you’re flexible on the dates of your trip, you can look over all the different aspects of deciding when to come and then make your choice!

Some factors we’ll look at are specific activities, cultural events, and weather throughout the year.

The Pros & Cons of Private vs. Group Tours

When it comes to planning a once in a lifetime vacation, nothing should fall through the cracks. You want to make sure that you get exactly what you want out of your trip! There’s no room for mistakes or disappointments. You’ve been dreaming about your time off for weeks, months, or even years. This precious opportunity should rightfully be held to a high standard.

But for many people, planning a trip to an exotic location can be confusing. Not only have you likely not been to the location before, but you also might have a lot of questions! What is the local culture like? What are some do’s and don’ts of being a guest in this country? What activities and sites are a must-see? Or on the other side of things, what should I be sure to avoid?

Even with the help of the internet, sites like TripAdvisor can lead you astray. It’s difficult to discern what information to trust and which information to throw out. In the age of the internet, we have all come to know that not everything you read can be trusted. Everything must be taken with a grain of salt!

And in the end, there’s nothing that can truly replace the advice of an expert who’s gained their experience and knowledge firsthand. So where are the experts and how do you get their help? This is where becoming part of a tour group can help.

You’ll need to decide, though, whether a private or a group tour is best for you.
