Hey there! Welcome to my blog! My name is Monica and I’m here to give you all the information you need for a stunning holiday in Morocco!

YES, THANK YOU! BUT…WHO IS MONICA?

Well, I moved to Marrakech and started a tourist reception business. I manage a beautiful Riad (bed and breakfast) which is located in the heart of the historic center of the city (called Medina), a few steps from the famous Jamaa El Fna Square. I like to devote a lot of time to my clients especially because, over time, I have realized that actually, when a tourist visits a city for the first time, he is … how to say … a little lost. And this is especially true for Marrakech, a city that has a dense network of small alleys and hidden corners where in all probability, you get lost … often … almost always !! And it is precisely for this reason that I like to give all the possible advice and information to those who are about to come and visit Morocco. Being informed above all by a person who lives on the spot means enjoying your holiday to the fullest, it means being able to go home and tell all your friends and family about how nice it was to visit this country and especially Marrakech, means remembering Monica that guided and advised you step by step on an unforgettable holiday!

I’M ALSO A TRAVEL CONSULTANT, BUT NOT AN AGENCY!!

As already mentioned above, I am a hotel manager based in Marrakech and, initially, just as a hobby I started the blog by writing informative articles on places to visit in Morocco. I liked the idea of ​​being able to somehow help people who were planning a holiday in Morocco by making them aware of places they might not know. Then, over the years, I began to receive requests for help in planning a holiday in and around Marrakech and especially tours and big circuits in Morocco. In fact, tours and big circuits are difficult to organize and take a lot of time because you don’t know the territory. This is why many people have preferred to rely on me in taking care of the entire organizational part of the holiday (hotel booking, booking of tourist guides, private transfer with driver, etc.), in order to avoid problems or unpleasant surprises. I received a lot of great satisfaction as everyone returned satisfied from the organized tours and circuits. That’s why I also added the travel organization service to Morocco.

Having said that friends, let’s get on with the info and have a good holiday !!

WELCOME TO MOROCCO

Morocco is a gateway to Africa and a country of dizzying diversity. Here you’ll find epic mountain ranges, ancient cities, sweeping deserts – and warm hospitality.

Mountains & Desert
From Saharan dunes to the peaks of the High Atlas, Morocco could have been tailor-made for travellers. Lyrical landscapes carpet this slice of North Africa like the richly coloured and patterned rugs you’ll lust after in local cooperatives. The mountains – not just the famous High Atlas but also the Rif and suntanned ranges leading to Saharan oases – offer simple, breathtaking pleasures: night skies glistening in the thin air, and views over a fluffy cloudbank from the Tizi n’Test pass. On lower ground, there are rugged coastlines, waterfalls and caves in forested hills, and the mighty desert.

Ancient Medinas
Morocco’s cities are some of the most exciting on the continent. Join the centuries-old trail of nomads and traders to their ancient hearts, from the winding medina maze of Fez to the carnivalesque street-theatre of the Djemaa El Fna in Marrakesh. In the rocky deserts medinas are protected by kasbahs, on the coast by thick sea walls. But it’s not just a heritage trip, as Morocco’s cities are forward-facing too, with glitzy new urban design in Casablanca, Rabat and Tangier looking to the future as well as paying homage to their roots.

Moroccan Activities
Enjoying Morocco starts with nothing more strenuous than its national pastime – people-watching in a street cafe with a coffee or a mint tea. Use the opportunity to plan your next moves – hiking up North Africa’s highest peak, learning to roll couscous, camel trekking in the desert, shopping in the souqs or getting lost in the medina. Between the activities, you can sleep in boutique riads, relax on panoramic terraces and grand squares, and mop up delicately flavoured tajines – before sweating it all out in a restorative hammam.

Traditional Life
Morocco is a storied country, that has, over the centuries, woven its ties to sub-Saharan Africa, Europe and the wider Middle East into whole cloth. Its mixed Arab and Berber population forms a strong national identity, but an increasingly youthful one, taking the best of its traditions and weaving the pattern anew – from the countryside to the city, from the call to prayer from the mosque to the beat of local hip hop. Morocco has a hundred faces and sounds, all ready to welcome the traveller looking for spice and adventure.
