Why Visit Morocco? – Highlights From Previous ATS Participants

Updated: Jul 4

Morocco is a land of enchantment, filled with vibrant culture, breathtaking landscapes, and warm hospitality. For many travelers, a trip to Morocco is not just a vacation but a transformative experience. Let's delve into the highlights of visiting Morocco as shared by past participants who have embarked on this unforgettable journey with African Travel Seminars (ATS).

Our participants often describe their travels as life-changing. The diversity of experiences, from bustling cities to serene deserts, leaves a lasting impression. As Mr. and Mrs. Ruth and Richard Carroll. (Virginia) eloquently put it, “We loved the trip and are still on a Morocco high.” Their sentiment encapsulates the euphoria that follows an adventure in this magical country.

One of the most praised aspects of ATS tours is the meticulously planned itineraries that ensure travelers experience the best of what Morocco has to offer. Mr. and Mrs. Mike and Patti Sobolewski (Wisconsin) reflected on their trip, saying, “Both Patti and I absolutely loved it! We have taken a lot of vacations and this one ranks right up there as one of the best we've ever had the opportunity to go on! We both find it hard to believe how much was packed into the itinerary. Honestly, it is hard to pick any one highlight over the other - just when we thought things couldn't get any better - they did.” This statement highlights the continuous surprises and delights that Morocco offers to its visitors.

Morocco’s rich cultural heritage is a major draw for travelers. The country's cities and towns are a blend of ancient traditions and modern influences. Mrs. Jana Lee (Maryland) emphasized the cultural impact of her visit, stating, “Morocco was a once in a lifetime experience that I will never forget! The rich culture and vibrant people are unforgettable, this is a bucket list ‘must do’ for sure. I absolutely plan to return very, very, soon!” This reinforces how the cultural vibrancy of Morocco captivates and stays with visitors long after they leave.

Staying in traditional Moroccan riads is another highlight frequently mentioned by travelers. These traditional houses with interior gardens or courtyards provide an authentic Moroccan living experience. Ms. Beth Wodrich (Minnesota) fondly recalled her stay, saying, “I really enjoyed staying in the riads. To spend time in these beautiful places with crooked hallways and hidden gardens. The food was made specially for us. One kitchen worker made me a special crepe with chocolate and bananas!!” This personalized touch and the unique charm of riads make them a favorite among tourists.

Morocco’s landscapes are as diverse as its culture. From the bustling medinas of Marrakech and Fes to the tranquil expanses of the Sahara Desert, there’s something for everyone. The transition from city to desert, mountain to sea, offers a unique and comprehensive experience. One traveler shared, "From Casablanca to Rabat to Marrakech and every point in-between the trip was awe-inspiring. I am absolutely amazed with the breadth and depth of the experiences that our tour leader and ATS owner Ms. Georgina Lorencz organized for those of us who were blessed to tour Morocco with her.” This breadth of experiences ensures that every moment spent in Morocco is filled with wonder.

Ultimately, it is the people of Morocco who leave the most lasting impression. Their warmth, hospitality, and vibrant way of life make travelers feel welcome and at home. As one of our participants said, “Morocco was a wonderful, once in a lifetime experience. I would do another tour in a heartbeat! I would encourage everyone who is able to experience Morocco through the lens of an African Travel Seminar Tour. It was fabulous.”

Visiting Morocco is more than just a trip; it is an immersion into a world of rich culture, stunning landscapes, and unforgettable experiences.

The testimonials of past participants underscore the magic and allure of this North African gem. Whether it’s the meticulously planned itineraries, the cultural richness, the unique accommodations, or the breathtaking diversity of landscapes, Morocco promises an adventure that will stay with you long after your return. As the experiences of Mr. and Mrs. Ruth and Richard Carroll, Mike and Patti Sobolewski, Jana Lee, and Beth Wodrich suggest, Morocco is a destination that captivates and enchants, making it a must-visit on any traveler’s bucket list.
