Like the medina souks, it can be difficult to navigate the saturated market of Moroccan tourism and how to know who to trust in a land so foreign from your own. The reality is that most tour operators in Morocco offer largely similar services: transportation to amazing destinations, guides explaining history and culture, and stops for food along the way. While the tourism industry in Morocco is rather well-developed, this can lead to canned tours, where your experience is more of a sheep being herded from one point to the next. Regrettably, many visitors leave having been pushed to pay exorbitant prices for poor quality goods and wondering what all the fuss is about. They were never exposed to a home-cooked meal such as Tagines and Couscous, prepared for hours with love and spices.
Morocco Social Impact Travel “MSITravels” exists to authentically connect you, not only to Morocco’s incredible destinations, but to the heartbeat that lies beneath. We want you to come away with an eye for the beauty of its natural environment and the hopes and challenges of our people. We want you to touch and feel good quality workmanship and to taste the ras el hanout, the saffron, the cinnamon, the cumin and more other commonly used spices in our Tagines. Learn closely and hear our people’s history, songs and poems. To hear the pride and challenges of our people. And we want you to have the opportunity to give back, to support vulnerable families in meaningful ways. To open yourself up to our culture. To build authentic cultural connections and know that your visit matters. That when you leave, you’ll take carpets and Argan oil and lanterns and photographs and memories, but you’ll also leave a mark that made a difference.
