It’s a good idea to have travel insurance, to protect you from unforeseen scenarios for your Morocco Tour. It is something we hope you will never need, but you will eventually. It covers those minor incidents, such as losing your items breaking your camera, or covering an emergency while you are traveling.


Traveling is one of the most exciting experiences, so don’t end up losing all the money you own and have invested in your vacation by not having travel insurance.

Dressing decent and shy is a nice thing to do, especially for women to show respect to the inhabitants of Morocco because some of them consider a short dress that reveals much of the body disrespectful, especially in villages, small towns, and holy places.

 

Taking pictures is one of the things you should know about while you are in Morocco. So if you want to take pictures, you should ask first because some people don’t like it, and some of them are payable, for example, the snake charmer (in Jamaa Alfna at Marrakech) if you want to take a picture it will cost 20 DH or maybe more.

 The Internet in Morocco is readily available and reliable. The majority of “Riads” and hotels or even restaurants have Wi-Fi. Usually, Wi-Fi is best in the public areas of the Riad or the hotel, like the central courtyards.
Skype should work just fine for you if you’d like to make calls at home, so traveling with your laptop or tablet would be nice. Read More
