Straight talk

We want to make sure you're on the right trip and that you have the best experience possible. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.


While our hotels are some of the finest in Morocco, some tend to be in fairly isolated areas, removed from the conveniences of a cosmopolitan city. Though part of their charm, it also means that when things break, it may take some time to get repaired. Service standards can be a bit different here and you may encounter the occasional person unfamiliar with the concept of "service with a smile."
