Authentic Morocco Ltd is an independent Tour Operator offering private Morocco Tours that travel at your own pace to explore an exotic kingdom of Imperial cities, mountains, desert dunes and rose-filled valleys.
Fully insured and bonded, ‘Authentic Morocco’ is privately owned by Liz Williams who personally handles all bookings. Our office is in Marrakech and all staff, other than Liz, are Moroccan. We operate locally as a licensed Moroccan ‘Agence du Voyage’ that is registered and bonded with the Ministry of Tourism in Rabat.
Our Private Morocco trips, cultural tours and excursions are suitable for singles, couples, friends, small group tours, independent travelers, women travelling alone, student tours and family holidays with children. We also organise company or corporate events in addition to social projects e.g. the planting of 500 trees in the High Atlas as a team-building exercise for an international company.

In 2014 we will help co-ordinate a trip to Morocco for Central Yorkshire Scout County. The Scout County exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development through the values of Integrity, Respect, Care, Belief and Co-operation. In conjunction with the Hannan School Project, a group of young people will have the opportunity to share in the diversity of Morocco at a very local level. Thirty-six boys and girls, all Scouts aged from 15yrs to 18yrs, will share experiences with the Berber community of El Borj as they undertake preparatory construction work for the school and teach first aid and IT skills to local teachers. By spending time at El Borj they will widen and share their understanding and appreciation of cultural differences, enabling them to make a positive contribution to society.
“Thank you so much for organizing the superb trip. Everything was perfect, from the exotic Riads/Ksars, amazing desert camp, the camel named Jimi Hendrix, tea with a Nomad family, the beauty of the Moroccan countryside, the olives, tajines, Kasbahs, Fes, tea with a Berber family in their home, the crazy road to Marrakech, Marrakech!, lost in the medina, hammam bath, glorious sunsets, spectacular views, many laughs over language barriers and fun with the wonderful Moroccan people. My list goes on. However I cannot leave out our fabulous guide Mohammed who was simply the best. Very patient and accommodating, knowledgable, kind, friendly, always on time and always there for us. And Said, our driver, was excellent as well, those roads were sometimes rather crazy, he was very cautious and I never felt uneasy (I am not good on mountain roads!). I miss them (not the roads). Needless to say we have had a trip of a lifetime!” Yvonne, October 2013
