Please note that, if you have any special dietary requirements, you should inform us prior to the trip. Vegans and those on gluten-free diets may find this region very challenging and may need to supplement meals with their own supplies from supermarkets and markets. Wherever possible, we will cater to dietary needs for any included meals, but there may be times when those with special requirements may need to provide their own food.
More about Moroccan food
Moroccan food is, generally speaking, excellent though not particularly varied. Breakfasts usually consist of bread and jam with coffee or tea. Meals eaten out are reasonably priced — kebabs and bread cost only about MAD 30. In main towns, it is possible to find very good French and Moroccan restaurants where a meal and French wine will cost anything from Mad 220 upwards. Generally, dinner is likely to cost between MAD 80-120 depending on what you drink. An overall food budget estimate would be about MAD 150-200 a day. Soft drinks are available at very reasonable prices, but generally speaking alcohol is not widely available in Morocco due to cultural and religious reasons. Still, in some hotels and restaurants you will be able to purchase beers, wines, and spirits, but you can pay Western prices or more for imported alcohol. Please be aware of local laws, beliefs, and traditions by being respectful while consuming alcohol. Your leader can help recommend restaurants each evening. Vegetarians can be catered for, but there is a fairly limited choice (mainly vegetarian couscous and tajine or omelettes). This is particularly the case in rural parts of this itinerary.
