Enlightening taste of the real morocco

We drove about 90mins to Taroudant,and actually saw goats in the argan trees and camels roaming the fields eating the leaves! Mohammed took us round the Palace,which is now a bijou hotel.Fabulously authentic.We bought coffees in the garden Mohammed threaded us thro both Beeber and Arabic markets , which were totally not touristy.Saw artisans and blacksmiths at work.Not sure about the brunch mentioned in the description tho...we didnt get that. Very good trip which you wouldnt get as much out of alone.

An individual ride with Farid!

We were lucky and drove alone with Farid to Taroudant, the little Marrakech. He told us a lot of interesting information about the country and its people and also responded to individual requests (photo shoot with the well-known goats on the tree). The ride was very nice overall, Farid was a good tour guide. We recommend!

We had never visited Morocco before and wanted to experience something away from the main centres so decided to visit Taroudant. We weren't disappointed as it was completely different to what we had encountered before. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for different culture.
