What is the electrical system in Morocco?
Morocco voltage is 220V, 50 Hz (two pin round plugs). Always check your laptop or electronic items to make sure they can handle 100-240 volts
Are there buses departing from other cities?
Our Buses will depart from Seville. We provide buses from Granada if there are at least 36 travelers coming from there.
There are also buses from Córdoba, Madrid, Salamanca, Valencia, Alicante and some other cities within Spain. If you contact us, we can try to arrange transportation for you and your friends. Keep in mind that we need a minimum number of people to do it.
What should I wear?
Morocco is an Islamic country, therefore we advise that the normal dress code on the streets is to cover legs, chest and arms for both men and women but T-shirts and bermudas shorts may be worn.
Just because other tourists may not be so respectful does not mean that the local Moroccans are comfortable with their attire.
Though the days can be very warm between late October and April, it is usually cold at night. In the hot summer months we'd suggest you to wear light, loose, cotton or linen to stay as cool as possible.
Staff will be happy to advise you of the protocol at each place.
How much luggage can I bring?
We travel to Morocco on buses-you can bring as much luggage as you like. We recommend bringing a small roller suitcase or a duffel bag. We also suggest that you bring comfortable clothes and shoes, both should be suitable for warm and cooler weather. Check the weather on the internet a few days before the departure date so you can pack accordingly!
What’s the currency in Morocco?
The currency in Morocco is called the Dirham. 1€ = 10DH approx. There is no need for you change the money into dirhams since you can pay in euros, dollars, etc. everywhere we go. If you want to exchange some money to dirhams you can either change it at the hotel or at some shops in town. It’s hard to change dirhams back to euros, so it’s best for you to either spend it all or change little at a time, maybe between 40 and 100 euros, depending on how much you would like to buy.
What type of hotels do we stay in Morocco?
We always stay in 3 star hotels with all meals included. Drinks are not included in the trip price so make sure to bring small euro coins so you can purchase your drinks accordingly.
What is the rooming situation?
Rooms in the hotel are usually doubles and triples. Sometimes, because of hotel availability, we only have triple rooms, therefore, you may be placed with another person from the trip (we will always place you with someone from the same gender).
What language are the tours in?
The tour guides in Morocco conduct all of the tours in English. Our Onfleek tour guides speak English, Spanish, & Arabic.
What’s the food in Morocco like?
Moroccan food is widely regarded as excellent; a healthy diet, drawing from Arab, Berber, Jewish, African and French traditions, using a distinctive blend of fresh produce and spices, herbs and nuts there is a large array of unique culinary delights. Morocco's cuisine reflects the extensive range of home produced ingredients and reflects the culture of Morocco.
Care should be taken with food hygiene, especially in hot weather, and it is wise to eat only at recommended restaurants or choose food well cooked in the conical clay dishes known as tagines; you can choose from a great variety of meat or vegetarian dishes, all mildly spiced and with flavour intensified by the cooking method and wonderful fresh salads (all food is picked and bought just before preparing meals in Morocco). There is an abundance of locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables (including dates, oranges, bananas, figs, melons, avocados etc.) which are used imaginatively with spices, herbs and oils produced locally such as argan oil, an exquisite orange nutty flavoured oil.
The most popular drinks are mint tea and fresh orange juice and bottled water is widely available and safe to drink. Tap water in cities and towns is chlorinated and generally considered safe to drink but in rural areas it is inadvisable to drink tap water.
If you have dietary restriction or allergies please let our tour guides know and we will arrange something special for you. We accommodate anything!
What’s the weather like in Morocco?
The weather in Morocco is very similar to southern Spain. It is a good idea to check the weather on the internet before you go just in case you may have to bring a jacket, umbrella, or other weather specific clothing.
Anything I should know about the culture?
Morocco is one of the most liberal Islamic countries. The main restriction a tourist will encounter is banned entry into the mosques if you are not a Muslim.
During the month of Ramadan, when the believers fast each day until sunset, you will have a few more challenges visiting during this time as things will be closed.
In Islamic countries it is forbidden to drink alcohol. As Morocco is a favorite tourist destination, restrictions have been relaxed and alcohol is served in many bars, hotels and restaurants.
