Travel to Meknes, one of the kingdom’s great imperial cities dating back to the 11th century; its surroundings have remained unchanged for centuries. Stand before the Bab el-Mansour, the monumental entrance to the imperial city and focal point of Place El-Hedim before continuing to Fes.

This trip took us into the real life of Moroccans and their history. It was well worth it.

By Halyna K on Apr 06, 2019

Exceptional experience! We left for our trip - not knowing what to expect - we were not disappointed. The Travel Director - Mohamed was very attentive and dedicated to making sure we enjoyed the trip. His extraordinary insights and knowledge of Morocco was appreciated by everyone in the group. Accommodations (bus, hotels and restaurants) were all top notch. This was our second trip with Insight - we recommend Insight to all our friends and we are already planning our next trip to Greece and Turkey. I tell all my friends -"Just GO" At one point during the tip - my thoughts were: "I'm in a foreign country that speaks a language I don't understand, surrounded by people I just met a few days ago, I just put my daughter on a camel and let her ride off into the Sahara dessert with a guide whose face is covered, I hope she will be safe & he will bring her back. Am I crazy for doing this - NO! Because she will remember this trip for the rest of her life."

By Carol K on Mar 23, 2019

Well organized,well run , safety first.only problem with some hotels which need to train their service people.

By Emanuel M on Oct 14, 2017

The tour operator worked very hard to make the trip enjoyable for everyone. The downfall is that there were 37 persons on this trip. We believe that was just too may persons in a confined space (the tour bus), had we known that there were going to be this many persons on the tour, we would not have booked it. Several days of the bus ride were very, very long days. Two of the trip customers arrived at the beginning of the trip VERY ill with flu-like symptoms. Neither those 2 persons, nor the tour operator, did anything to protect the other passengers during the long, enclosed bus rides. By the end of the trip, more than half of the other passengers were sick.

By Amner C on Oct 07, 2017

My second trip with Insight Vacation, and excellent Hotels and service, No Problem.

By Sharif H on Mar 25, 2017

It was a excellent tour but the service in Atlas Hotel in Essaouira was poor though the location was excellent.

By Bruce F on Sep 09, 2016

The Insight tour to Morocco was exactly as I hoped for and expected. One thing about escorted tours that I still don't like is the amount of dinners at hotel buffets. The dinners in restaurants were by far the better part of the trip. I understand getting 40 people in a restaurant is difficult, but it would still be my preference.

By Ursula K on Sep 02, 2016

excellent guide, driver, and small enjoyable group of internationals.

By Karen D on May 07, 2016

The package was supposed to include transfers to and from the airport. Since we were staying in Morocco beyond the tour time period, we did not need the return transfer. However, since our flight did not arrive in Casablanca by the 2pm deadline (which is FAR too early in the day), we had to pay the equivalent of $40. for a taxi to the hotel. So, in essence, we paid for two transfers for each person that we did not use. This was a big savings for Insight and a big expense for us. Very disappointing that the tour company did not reimburse us for this inconvenience and expense.

By Frank M on Oct 17, 2015

Staff at the golden tulip hotel in Casablanca was terrible regarding customer service. Not responsive to any requests or helpful in any way, just unfriendly. Our tour director was terrific; one of the best I've ever had.

By Margo M on Mar 21, 2015

This particular tour with Insight vacations exceeded my expectations.
