Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
How can I make a tour reservation ?
Feel free to contact Moha via E-mail or phone as it is mentioned in Contact Us page.
Is Morocco Safe to visit?
Yes, Morocco is a very safe destination to visit. It is the embodiment of one of the safest countries in the world. The tourism industry in Morocco is growing at an incredible rate, and as a result, the government keeps enhancing and upgrading the level of security each year. However, like most countries, Morocco has its share of petty crime such as scams and pickpockets. Moroccan people are known for their hospitality and they will make you feel very welcome and safe at all times.
Should i bring Moroccan currency with me?
The short answer is no. The Moroccan Dirham is a closed currency, which means it would not be easy to find elsewhere outside Morocco. If an exchange facility somehow manages to obtain dirham, you’ll pay dearly for it. Therefore, it’s better to wait until you get to Morocco and let us get you to a recommended point of exchange or an ATM.
ATMs are widely available throughout Morocco and tend to have very good exchange rates. Even when paying a fee from your own bank for an overseas withdrawal plus ATM provider fees, it may well be more cost-effective to use an ATM than to exchange money.
Can i exchange USD, Euro, GBP, AUD, NZD in Morocco?
All the exchange points and banks accept USD, Euro, and GBP, whereas Australian and New Zealand dollars are not accepted for exchange in Morocco. Therefore, if you are bringing cash for exchange, remember that you will need to bring USD, EUR, or GBP.
What about women traveling alone? What about the Dress code?
Morocco is safe for female visitors. But it is important to be aware of cultural norms. There is no dress code in Morocco. In fact, many women in the cities dress just like they do in the west, so you can wear whatever makes you comfortable. Morocco is very tolerant, and you are not expected to act or look like a Moroccan. However, in rural areas and villages, we recommend dressing conservatively to avoid any unwanted attention.
Where i will stay, and can i select my accomoddation?
Morocco Travel Time creates tailor-made holidays. We focus on Riad and Kasbah style accommodation, which we personally select. This adds value to your overall experience.
It is not an issue if you want to select your own accommodation, as we are not subcontracted with any property. At Deep Morocco Tours, we always aim to book each client at the most suitable property depending on your style, interest, and budget.
How Does a custom private Tour work?

We will continue to discuss your plans with you, and once we have come to an agreement, you will receive your finalized travel itinerary. After your approval, you will be required to send us a deposit to secure your reservation.
Shoud i Tip in Morocco and how much?
Tipping is customary in Morocco and always appreciated. Visitors as well as locals will generally tip for good service. It’s up to you if and how much you tip. Tipping 10-15% is standard. If someone guides you back to your accommodation or perhaps to a restaurant you are looking for, they may expect a tip and you can offer them 20-30 Dirhams.
