"Our customized travels with Morocco Off The Beaten Track was both exhilarating and inspiring. We were guided through the narrow streets of Marrakesh, Fez & Safrou where information was shared about the history, culture and traditional arts & crafts. We were well taken care of both in accommodations and food selections throughout our trip. We highly recommend this unique organization that truly cares about sharing the rich and diverse cultures found in and around Morocco. We suggest that you allow yourselves enough time to wander and truly experience the streets, the artisans and shops, the music and Mosques, to truly appreciate and absorb all that this company has to offer. MOBT will treat you with the most respect and satisfy all your requests. I highly recommend MOBT for personalized visit to Morocco."

"I can definitely say that for myself, and especially for my mother, a first-time visitor to Morocco and Fes, the Artisan tour was such a wonderful and unique opportunity to interact with the people keeping the traditions of Fes alive! We really enjoyed speaking to the artisans, watching them make products in front of us, and getting the inside view of many of these old shops and businesses. Both our guide and interpreter were great, they went above and beyond for our little tour, and were very patient with all of the questions we asked. We really enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to others who want to experience an authentic Old Medina. Thanks again to the MOBT Team!"

"My fiancée and I chose to visit Morocco with MOBT. We heard about them from a friend that enjoyed an awesome trip organized by them. We didn’t regret our choice, we spent an unforgettable stay in Morocco! I personally visited Morocco in the past with my parents, but I didn’t really visit the country and discovered the culture, like I did this time… It was the first time visiting Morocco for my fiancée. She was amazed by the warmth of the local people! Our trip highlights was when we visited local villages in both the Middle and High Atlas, experienced homestay with a wonderful Moroccan family in Fez and met with local artizans in their workshops. Absolutely interesting and unique! Thank you again to the MOBT team, we will plan another visit to Morocco later, that’s for sure!!"

"MOROCCO OFF THE BEATEN TRACK has the good fortune of being led by staff that is fun, knowledgable, culturally sensitive, and extraordinarily hospitable. I have known the program leaders personally for quite a while now and can think of few individuals who could provide a better introduction to the authentic cultures of Morocco."

"I booked with MOBT because I wanted to go with a Moroccan-based organisation that could give me an indepth and authentic experience of Morocco's people, culture and crafts. I was thrilled that MOBT was able to organise for me to spend time with local artisans and their families. The highlight was definitely spending EID lunch with a wonderful family in Sefrou. Thank you so much MOBT for making my trip even better than I had hoped for!!!"
