Group travel experience

I spent Christmas with a female friend in Marrakech it was very stressful with the vendors they grabbed us and were extremely insistent, we took a “wrong” route to a less touristy area and even little children were screaming at us and following us around. It was very bad. Then we took a trip to the sahara, was better but I had the feeling they were trying to take all the money as possible from us that they could, I mean they would drive through the city to stop at a restaurant where there was absolutely nothing else to choose from with very high prices. It was at the end a nice little trip we did. And I traveled to the beach I cannot remember the name of the city. Nobody was harassing us. I wore bikini’s and hang around until late.

I loved Morocco and had no issues traveling solo. I wasn’t a fan of Casablanca (I was only there for one night for my flights), but I loved everywhere else. Lots of catcalling in the Medina in Marrakech but that’s part of the culture, there’s no expectation to even acknowledge it and it’s fine to just keep walking. If you go onto a shop and they offer you tea, accept it - it’s a gesture of hospitality. The dress was more modern than I’d anticipated but I was glad to have packed clothing that was looser and conservative anyway. Take baby wipes with you and only drink bottled water. The call to prayer is beautiful. I stayed in riads everywhere except for my connections in Casablanca, and I treated myself to a full day at a hammam. Expense wise I thought it was pretty affordable but I didn’t spend a whole lot while I was roaming. My riads all included breakfast and an evening snack, so I just grabbed street food while I was out wandering. The tipping culture is very different from the US, and little kids will approach you and ask for change. Don’t do it, it’s a pickpocketing scheme. Not too much trouble finding English speakers but if you know a handful of French phrases it can be helpful. Overall the people were warm and friendly, the country is gorgeous and fascinating. It was life changing for me.

Marrakech was my least favourite place I visited in Morocco, it can be really overwhelming. Fez, Essaoueira and Chefchaouen were way more relaxed in my experience and I didn’t get harassed nearly as much there. It can be a bit of a culture shock, took me a day or two adjust.

I stayed at the Mamounia and a local riad. Essaouira was great, Chefchaouen (photo ops at every turn), overnight at the desert (but I would go for a longer desert trip next time), Ait Ben Haddou. There wasn’t much to see in Casablanca but had to fly out from there. Wore loose long-sleeved, long skirt, scarf (to enter mosques).

Morocco is totally safe, good public transport, it was fairly easy to get around. There are tours too - went to the Sahara for a few days. The annoying thing is that people will try to sell you something, you need to haggle really hard as most likely the price they offer is ridiculously high. As you stand out most likely you will be the one who will be approached by millions of sellers. Also, if you get lost in the narrow streets and someone offers to help you, at the end they ask for money so the best thing is to clarify for how much they are going to charge. Morocco is a very interesting place though - desert, ocean and mountains and cultural heritage! Food is great too. Wonderful place.

Felt very unsafe in Marrakech, never again alone over there, while Essaouira, Chefchaouen, Fez and Agadir were absolutely gorgeous! I travelled alone by bus, I did not get out in the evening, ignored men and the catcalling, stayed very careful in the souk.

I just returned from a two week solo trip to Morocco and that's more than enough time to travel around the country a bit, which I would definitely recommend. Marrakesh is very nice, but I personally would not spend more than 3 days there because after that you will have seen most of the sights. If I can recommend anything, it would be to go to the Royal Mansour for afternoon tea. It's a bit expensive but you will feel like a princess for a few hours, the food is amazing and they let you see the garden, spa, etc. The palaces are also a great place to visit and a nice respite from the beautiful but crazy medina. Safety-wise, I did not have any issues. You just have to expect and accept that many, many men (vendors, 'guides' and random guys) will try to get money and/or attention from you but they are easily ignored or deflected with a polite 'no thank you' and a smile. Apart from Marrakesh, I would recommend to go the Essaouira. It's on the coast and only a 3-hour bus ride (CTM/Supratour busses are safe, comfy and cheap) from Marrakesh. There you can surf, kite surf, eat good food, wander around the white medina and basically chill out. Otherwise, I would recommend to go to the desert at Merzouga with a Sahara tour. It's quite a trip (you will spend many hours on a mini bus) but seeing the 50 meter high sand dunes was AMAZING and totally worth it.

I've visited Morocco twice solo and I loved it. I used local transport trains and local buses. I visited Chefchauen, Tangier, Fez (my favourite), Rabat. I visited Casablanca for the day to see the Beautiful Mosque. I took a local Hammam not tourist one. Ate at local restaurants and found the people so friendly. Morocco is so easy to travel alone.

Solo travel experience

I went to Morocco a year ago. Generally speaking, it’s safe but be prepared for some harassment. I booked a well-experienced local driver/guide and I felt so safe with him. I only spent one day on my own and felt unsafe pretty much the entire time. I think going with a tour company will be so helpful cause the cities are very complex to get around in. Streets are like a maze. Very few speak English and I never saw any signs of English. Also, they will make the trip fun for all ages. Their local guides also help keep people and vendors from bugging you or taking advantage in markets. It’s not how I usually travel but for a country like Morocco traveling with a local driver-guide was the best choice glad I did that.

I got the ferry from Tarifa to Tangier which was quick and easy. I also went to Fez, Marrakech, Essaouira (my fave) and Casablanca. I felt safe as a solo traveller. On arrival in Tangier there are touts everywhere as you get off the boat. I avoided the pressure by having accommodation booked nearby in the medina and I got a taxi. I did have to be quite assertive but I also know that people rely on travellers for income. The hotel owner was very helpful. After that everything was fine.
