hedon1sm has indicated that this thread is about Morocco

I will be spending 8 days in Morocco on the first week of March, flying in and out of Casablanca.

I am a single traveler with little to no restrictions, except maybe budget!

Being a single traveler has its advantages, including being able to do what I want to do, but this time, I would like to share my experience in Morocco with other travelers. I had a great time doing this in Australia last year, traveling on a structured tour with a group of other backpackers, and I am hoping to relive the experience in Morocco.

I would like your help/assistance on the following:

1) What are reputable tour companies that offer English group tours to Marrakech and Fez? (Better if accommodations are included.)

2) If I can't join any group tour, might anyone have any tips on the do's and don'ts of getting a guide?

3) The hotel booking sites that I consulted have expensive rates for hotels in Morocco! I would be very much obliged for any recommendation on reasonably-priced places to stay in Casablanca, Marrakech, and Fez.

My apologies if this type of thread has been posted already, I tried to do a search and I did not find any threads that completely provided the information I was looking for.

Thanks in advance for all the help! Cheers!

Morocco doesn't really do the backpackers culture with hostels and tours in the way some other countries do... but it doesn't really need to.

Public transport is cheap and easy, and people are incredibly friendly; expect people to try to talk to you, even if you don't have a language in common!

The other advantage is that you are just as likely to meet local people as you are other tourists, which means you get to learn a little about real life and culture, too.
