Service rating : I have been happy with all my GET trips however this Morocco Premium trip felt rushed and much too structured.
Response from Grand European Travel:
We are sorry to hear about you feeling rushed and structured. While we have to stick to a pretty strict schedule, we do try to allow some leisure time for those who prefer that option. We hope that you were able to come home with some happy memories despite these issues.

Service rating : Travel arrangements were great. Coming home through JFK was a little stressful but not related to arrangements but rather we had nowhere to “park” until another aircraft pulled out. Enthusiastic guide, Hassan showed us his country and helped us to understand his culture. Our driver Abdullah was outstanding. Fun group of folks. Enjoyed the Sahara sunset and the coast! This country is so varied and enjoyed this trip. As our guide said this is a third world country but if you open your attitude you’ll find this an amazing journey.
Vacation : Felt this was a good value. Not fond of buffet breakfasts but can always find something to get my day started. Some folks were not happy with their rooms but traveling as a “single”...rooms were just fine. Rooms are more European and AC doesn’t always work. Again we’re in another country so keep that in mind! The optional tours were reasonably priced and when you are there it makes sense to do all you can. Have to say we had time for a hamman and a swim in Marrakech. Well worth it!

Service rating : GET were polite, efficient, quick to respond to all my questions and concerns. I asked them to find a less expensive fare to my destination, which they quickly did, saving me a considerable amount of money. My one issue, admittedly minor, is that they did not consider seat assignments carefully: on the trans-Atlantic segments of my flights I was assigned seats adjacent to a galley or toilet, or both, when most seats in Business were still unassigned. I changed those assignments myself after consulting Seat Guru.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for taking the time to write. We are so pleased to see that you enjoyed your trip. Regarding seat assignments on your flights, GET will only take a request for seats as the airline has control over actual assignments and they could change at any time. We are happy that you were able to secure the seat you preferred.

Vacation : Excellent value for money. Never before had I been on a group tour where there wasn’t an issue with a hotel or with the one or more included meals: all were very good to excellent. Included tours were very good, the local guides personable and knowledgeable, the tour director excellent, and my fellow travelers were well-traveled and considerate of each other.

Service rating : This is my second tour with GET. No complaints.
Vacation : Tour Price was OK. The price of an extra night in Casablanca was too much. GET was not able to obtain a good price for the air travel.

Service rating : I met the Tour manager (Abdulwahab) at the airport. He took us to beautiful Grand Magador hotel. I have traveled with different travel agencies and I found the service and response of Great European Travel (GET) to be excellent. Hotels were nice and places to visit were great. It was a very enjoyable Morocco tour. Both the tour manager and driver were friendly and courteous, Tour Manager was funny, reliable and detailed. He had good knowledge of places, history and culture of Morocco and his English was good. As for driver (kareem) he was courteous, considerate and cautious driver. These two make a great team. Tour Manager (Abdulwahab) has a warm personality and highly motivated. He knows the cultural and religious history and how to beat the crowds at the sites, as well as where to get the best photos, and where to eat well. Thank you Great European Tour, Tout manager (Abdulwahab) and Driver (Kareem). I will have no hesitation in recommending you to my friends.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank your for taking the time to write a detailed review. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your trip, and were impressed with our Tour Director and Driver. Morocco is a wonderful destination and we're glad you were able to explore it with us - we hope to see you on another tour soon!

  • U.S. citizens traveling to Morocco must have a current passport that is valid for six months beyond the conclusion of their trip. You can find information on how to apply for a passport here, and how to renew a passport here. No visa is required for U.S. citizens traveling to Morocco.

  • The official currency in Morocco is the dihram.  Major currencies including euros and U.S. dollars are accepted in most places. You can also use your debit card to withdraw cash at local ATMs. We recommend bringing a credit card for purchases and informing your financial institutions of your travel plans before leaving home to avoid having your purchases flagged as potentially fraudulent charges.

  • Moroccan food is a flavorful mix of Mediterranean, Arabic, Andalusian and North African cuisines.  A wide variety of spices including saffron, cinnamon, cumin, turmeric, and paprika are used in cooking.  Try a variety of couscous with meat and vegetables and fresh baked Moroccan bread.  Meals are generally concluded with fresh fruit and a glass of sweet mint tea.

  • We suggest bringing a variety of lightweight clothing items that can be layered to save space in your suitcase and give you more options for how to dress.  Loose fitting clothes are always a respectful and comfortable option in Morocco, especially during the summer months when the weather is hot and humid.  Long skirts, flowy pants and t-shirts will keep you comfortable without sacrificing modesty.  Sturdy, closed-toe walking shoes are advisable, especially in Morocco’s larger cities where streets can sometimes be unclean.  It’s also a good idea to bring a lightweight scarf that can be worn at religious sites and to demonstrate respect for Morocco’s conservative Islamic culture. For more helpful information please refer to our Packing Tips & Packing List.

  •  When dining out in Morocco, it’s appropriate to tip your waiter 1 dihram per person at cafés and up to 10-15 percent at upmarket restaurants.

     At the end of your guided vacation, it’s customary to offer your motor coach driver and Travel Director a gratuity.  We recommend €3.00 per person/per day for your driver and €5.00 per person/per day for your Travel Director.  Recommended gratuity for a Local Host and Local Specialist is 1-2 euros per person, paid at the conclusion of each guided visit.  A convenient option is to prepay your tips before your departure.

  • Baggage on our trips is restricted to one large suitcase per person with dimensions not exceeding 30x19x10 inches and a maximum weight of 50 pounds. You are also permitted one piece of hand luggage, which should be small enough to fit under your coach seat or on the small overhead shelf compartment. Please note that luggage with an adjustable handle and wheels will not fit in the overhead compartment of the coach. Hotel porterage is included in your vacation.

  • You will need to be comfortable on your feet, walking and standing for up to three hours in various weather conditions.  All of our vacations involve walking, often on cobblestone and uneven surfaces in historic city centers.  In order to get the most out of your vacation you need to be able to comfortably walk 1-3 miles unassisted in one day, be in good condition and be able to keep pace with the group. 

    If you need any medications, it is important that you bring enough to last you the whole trip and keep them in your carry-on bag while you travel.

  • We highly recommend our optional Travel Protection Plan, which allows you to cancel for any reason up to 24 hours before departure. The plan also includes trip interruption, baggage loss or delay, and medical and emergency assistance. Click here for a summary of coverage details, terms and conditions.
