Family accommodation options

At Rickshaw we offer accommodation with character and authenticity, avoiding any international chains. The options range from charming local guesthouses in mountain villages, to comfortable Kasbah style hotels with pools or traditional Riads with a central courtyard where you can relax and cool off after a day of sightseeing. Be sure to speak to our Travel Specialists about arranging accommodation that meets your tastes and needs.

Getting around in Morocco

You can explore parts of Morocco by local buses or trains, though many families choose to self-drive as this gives the most flexibility on their trip. We can arrange your rental car and self-drive itinerary for the ultimate Morocco family road trip. Distances between the key destinations are very manageable, especially in the south where many compact routes are possible, ensuring you have ample time to enjoy each location. It is also possible for us to arrange local drivers for your holiday.

See more of Morocco with our local guides

With Rickshaw you’ll be travelling semi-independently in Morocco, though our experienced local guides will be with you at key moments during your trip. During a Marrakesh souk tour, your English-speaking host will show you the souks and alleys of Marrakesh through a local’s eyes. And during any of the treks or hikes, you’ll be accompanied by an experienced guide who can show you a real taste of life in the Atlas mountains. Thanks to our experienced guides, you can enjoy Morocco with peace of mind.

Flexible trips packed with adventure

Variety is the name of the game in Morocco, with plenty of opportunities to relax or get active. Along the coasts you’ll find laidback arty towns, sandy beaches, and many surfing hot spots. The Atlas Mountain region is all about trekking, visiting kasbahs along ancient caravan routes, and the mazes of alleys in the buzzing medinas of the imperial cities. Our Morocco experts have put together some itineraries we know you’ll love, or by choosing from our bite-size trips you can put together a unique itinerary all of your own.
