Our company ethos and practise:
We aim to provide enjoyable new experiences through meaningful exchange with local people which gives an understanding of the country, its culture, local and environmental issues. Our Medina guides give you a wonderful introduction to Marrakech and Morocco, whilst our local Berber trekking guides and Sahara nomads give you an in-depth knowledge of the country directly from the local people.
Working and supporting local people gives a greater tourism experience both to locals and their businesses and to you as the visitor. There are greater benefits for all working directly with small local businesses.
We actively try to promote Moroccan partners who are environmentally conscious and supporting one another through education and business.
We employ local people and provide support and a fair working environment. We have helped staff develop their skills, including language and in doing so provide a friendly and professional service to our clients.
Samir, Berber with Sahara origins can guide you through the history and culture of this exciting country. We are committed to supporting our local communities, and creating once in a lifetime experiences for you.
What you can do:
Morocco and it’s heritage and culture are threatened by large Tourist Companies, this takes business and support from small local businesses offering real experiences and also makes for a less pleasurable holiday and cultural experience. Although offering jobs and wages for a greater personnel in our experience, when tourism is imposed upon by these giants, local people are more likely to lose sight of their heritage, and get swamped by generic tourism. So, by supporting small, sustainable businesses, we can remind Moroccans that we tourists do value their heritage and culture, and that a wonderful holiday is as much about the experience and cultural exchange as it is about growing tourism numbers.
Below are some excellent NGO’s we work with and support. If you would like to visit them on your holiday or want to know how you can donate please contact us.
