Experience Morocco: The Best Luxury Travel and Tour Company in Marrakech, Casablanca and Essaouira
*This post is brought to you by one of our Sponsors*
Happy Summer my darling readers! I hope that this summer you have all been traveling the world or even your own home towns and exploring all that life has to offer! I have a lovely message from a Travelingpanties sponsor today about a trip I am dreaming of—a culinary taste of Morocco, a destination that has always ranked high on my list of places to see! I have always wanted to travel to Morocco, and now that I’ve learned about this fabulous luxury tour company in Morocco, I want to go even more.
Before I begin, I just want to let you all in on a secret. I receive dozens of emails each month offering to sponsor posts and am very selective in choosing the ones I think y’all, my loyal readers would enjoy. As you know, I rarely do these and only showcase companies I think are Travelingpanties-worthy. But in all seriousness, I don’t like recommending anything I do not believe is something I would pay money for myself. But when Experience Morocco approached me and told me about their luxury tours of Morocco, I practically begged them to take me with them.
Morocco is a destination so exotic and interesting, it’s always been on my list of must sees (ever since Casablanca!). It seems worlds away so I was shocked to learn it’s less than a 7-hour direct flight from New York. Long weekend to Morocco, anyone? Stay tuned for more on that (fingers crossed)
In the meantime, I want to tell you a little bit more about Experience Morocco, which is a leading curator of authentic travels and tours across Morocco.
Morocco is made up of four primary areas—the Sahara Desert, the Atlas and Rif Mountains, the plains (where you’ll find Marrakesh) and finally, the beach towns along the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean (hello, Casablanca!). When I dream of my trip to Morocco, I envision myself visiting souks filled with bright colors, wafting spices and amazing handmade goods. Oh and of course, no vision would be complete sans camel ride or sun tanning in the town of Essaouira.
Booking a guided trip has huge benefits in my opinion—you’ll notice that while I don’t prefer huge group tours, I do prefer having a local company organize my schedule for me. Vacation for me equals letting someone determine all the dirty details for me. The key is choosing a tour company that knows all the local and insider secrets. There are thousands of tour companies out there, finding ones that aren’t your typical packaged group tours is the key. And I believe I have found one with Experience Morocco.
Experience Morocco curates the perfect blend of must-see tourist experiences (on a luxury level of course) with unknown experiences tourists would never find without insider knowledge. What I mean by that is that Experience Morocco has uncovered authentic experiences that travelers would be unlikely to find on their own. Lunch in a local restaurant, hands-on cooking demonstrations, etc. Not just your run-of-the-mill tourist visits. They find unique places geared to each trip’s theme for the perfect blend of local culture.
Experience Morocco manages every aspect of your trip—transportation, accommodations, dietary restrictions, special events, you name it–all with close attention to detail. The Experience Morocco team is comprised of professionals who speak 16 languages in all so you’ll always be taken care of. These dedicated travel professionals will make sure every step of your trip is stress-free and fabulous.
If I were to choose my favorite way to travel in Morocco it would be on a culinary trip through the country like Experience Morocco’s upcoming “Tastes of Morocco Tour.” One of my favorite parts of travel is the food. What can I say? I’m a little piggy. But seriously, I have chosen entire vacations based on the food (hello, honeymoon in Thailand and Vietnam!).
You’ll become a bona fide Moroccan chef before you know it! Highlights of this fabulous trip to Morocco include visits to the brilliant architecture of Essaouira, Marrakech, theAtlas mountains, the Sahara desert (think camel rides!), Rick’s Café (of Casablanca fame), gastronomic tastings, hands-on demonstrations, wine sampling at local vineyards and so much more. Alia Al Kasimi, a leading culinary ambassador of Moroccan cuisine, will be leading the trip. Alia runs the popular YouTube channel Cooking With Alia, where her quick, chirpy how-tos explaining Moroccan recipes generated an instant fan base. Alia’s cooking has been featured internationally as a guest judge in MasterChef Poland and as a winner in International cooking competitions.
But that’s not all (in my funniest infomercial voice), Experience Morocco also customizes trips to your personal preferences–they told me they do an especially fabulous honeymoon detail. I can’t imagine anywhere more romantic and spicy! Ooh la la!
For a full itinerary of this fabulous way to travel to Morocco, click here. The price per person in double accommodation is $3600 for the 9 days / 8 nights itinerary and $5400 for the 13 days / 12 nights itinerary. The cost includes all meals (including wine), activities as listed above, cooking workshops, sightseeing, tips and taxes as well as the internal flight from Ouarzazate to Casablanca on Day 9 of the tour.

Thank you for sharing! Morocco is definitely going on the top of my travel list–I never even considered Morocco until I read your article. Also, I am not one for group tours, either, but this one sounds really creative and personalized and not your average run-of-the-mill tour…why should I wander around lost when someone familiar with the place can give me a personalized, inside tour!- July 30, 2015

I visited Morocco back in 2001 when I was living abroad in London and it was such a beautiful country with the most amazing food! I would love to go back one day!- August 2, 2015
This sounds like a dream!! I have always wanted to visit Morocco, and going on a tour like this would be the perfect way to do it. I think I would be overwhelmed doing it on my own, so I love that you can do a guided tour.- August 3, 2015
Wow! Morocco is just a 7 hour flight from NYC?? I never would have thought that! And I love the idea of a tour company planning everything- especially when you are in a country and area that you are not familiar with. But I do like some flexibility with a planned itinerary in case we want to sleep in or spend a little more time in a certain area while traveling. 😉 Morocco would definitely be an amazing travel experience!- August 3, 2015
I have always wanted to travel to Morocco. The colors, sounds and sights just call to me. When I was a kid I had a map in my room I would put pins into Morocco was on the list. I had no idea that it was so close to NYC. I think I need to plan myself a trip!- August 3, 2015
