Morocco

Morocco is one of those countries that changes and surprises you.

For solo female travelers, however, traversing the country alone can be just a little intimidating. That’s why we put together this awesome women’s only group adventure, covering the highlights of this incredible country.

Join us on a wild and beautiful adventure in Morocco this fall. Our trip will begin and end in Marrakesh, and where we will make our way to the high Atlas Mountains, spend a night under the stars in the Sahara Desert, explore the colorful markets of Fez, and experience the tranquility of lovely Chefchaouen (the blue city).

Please note, as we are covering wide ground in Morocco, we will have to make several long drives to get to/from most destinations.

Additional Information

Flights: You'll fly into Marrakech Airport (RAK). Arrive by 6pm on the arrival day, and depart morning or afternoon on departure day (early afternoon departures are always the best idea).

Want us to advise on flights? Email us at info@damesly.com

Weather: Expect abundant sunshine and cool, pleasant evenings in the fall and spring - with temps in the 70s to 80s during the day and significantly cooler at night.

Packing: We suggest long sleeves, light jackets, and scarves for cooler evenings and higher up in the mountains. Bring comfortable walking shoes and walking sandals for the desert (easiest if you have something the sand can pass through like a Teva or a flip flop). You'll want leggings or long pants for the day, and a cross-body purse or fanny pack for personal items. And don't forget lotion and Chapstick as the weather is quite dry.

For entry into Morocco, you'll need:

  • Passport (valid for 6+ months)
  • Travel Insurance*

*Note: We require proof of travel insurance for all international departures.

At Damesly, our goal is to connect women through beautifully curated travel experiences. 

Our trips feature a high level of customer support and a focus on cultural interaction and experiences. We’re dames who work hard, and travel often. So when you use your coveted PTO days, we want you to have the best trip possible! To do this, we hand-select boutique hotels based on location and service. We look for unique properties that we think of as hidden gems, which may or may not be 5-stars. Our itineraries offer a mix of adventure and relaxation. We’re not afraid to get a little dirty to have the most fun experiences, but if there’s an infinity pool or a great spa afterwards — we’ll meet you there!

Traveling the world comes with rewards and challenges. Our traveler is someone who is easy-going and open minded to new experiences and cultures, ready to get out of their comfort zone and understands that travel leads to personal growth, even on its toughest days. Join us if you’re adventurous, kind, open-minded and ready for the trip of a lifetime. 

On this tour to Morocco, you can expect to see much of the country during our time together. This is a great trip for the dame who wants to maximize time in the country. Some of our days on this tour are long, and many of our days involve longer drives, but, it's amazing to see the beautiful diverse landscape as it changes from desert to mountain and orchards and more.

That being said, this is Africa. Wifi might not always work as planned. Electricity might go in and out. Though our hotels are truly stunning on this tour, the food offered is typically Moroccan and may feel repetitive after 11 days. Come ready to see and experience true Morocco, and get ready to shop!!!

Will you match me?
Of course! If you choose a space in a shared room but you're traveling solo, we will do our best to pair you with a roommate. Roommates are matched based on arrival time and perceived compatibility. Sharing a room is a great way to save costs, and make a new friend! However, we ask you to approach the situation with an open mind, some grace, and maybe a little humor.

While 99% our travelers are amazing, we can't guarantee that you'll hit it off with your roommate, or that your sleeping styles will be compatible.

Is sharing right for you?
If you are a light sleeper, get easily irritated or just know that you need your own space, sharing a room might not be for you. Likewise, if you know that you snore, sleep with a CPAP machine or have other health conditions, sharing a room might not be the best fit.

What if I don't get along with my roommate?
If you've tried but you absolutely can't get along with your roommate and need to separate, your trip leader will either swap things around, or, attempt to get you your own room. If the latter, additional charges will incur.

What if I book a double room, and you can't match me?
We book a certain amount of hotel rooms before any tour, and are bound by their rules. In the event that we cannot find a roommate for you before the tour, and your room converts to a single room, there may be additional charges.

Small group trips require at least 4 people to run. We will confirm as soon as possible when the trip has met its minimum; up to 60 days before departure. For this reason, we recommend waiting until after a trip has been confirmed to purchase airfare. Any tour can be converted to a private departure when a trip does not meet its minimum. Additional costs may incur. Alternatively, apply your credit to any small-group tour departing within 12 months. 

When you book a tour with us, our team will create a customer portal for you, where you can make payments towards this tour at your leisure. 

If you’d prefer, we can create a payment schedule for you, just let our accounting team know (accounting@damesly.com) Tours must be paid in full 60 days before departure. 

This tour to Morocco must be paid in full by July 16, 2025. See our cancellation policy here.
