Cities and towns bustle with activity, where mud-walled buildings line souks (long narrow alleyways) that are filled with bazaars selling carpets and crafts, and laden with exotic spices, colourful tribal people, snake charmers and leather craftsmen.

a) Due to constantly fluctuating exchange rates, we now quote our tours in 4 currencies (see website). The tour price is however fixed only in the currency printed in bold (Euros), and the actual cost in the other currencies listed will be adjusted according to prevailing exchange rates at the time of final invoicing (usually 3 months before the tour.) The same applies to approximate domestic flight (where applicable) and single supplement rates, which are also quoted in the respective fixed currency.
b) Rates are based upon group tariffs; if the tour does not have sufficient registration (a minimum of 6 paying participants) a small party supplement will have to be charged.
c) Furthermore, these costs are subject to unforeseen increases in tour related costs and may have to be adjusted as a result.
d) Lastly, we may be forced to change or alter the itinerary and / or the designated M17026 leader/s at short or no notice due to unforeseen circumstances; please be aware that we will attempt to adhere as close to the original program as possible.
•Much of our time is spent in vehicles, as we do have to cover long distances in order to get to the best areas for birds. The more luggage you pack the less room there is in the vehicle, so it is important for the comfort of your fellow travellers that you do not over-pack. Kindly stick to 20kg (44lb) for check in luggage and 8kg (18lb) for hand luggage.
•It is important for you to be aware that it can get quite hot on this tour. Since we do not have any strenuous walks on this tour, it is however manageable. It can also get cold at night.
As noted above, gratuities (drivers, hotel staff, restaurants etc) are included on this tour. However, this does NOT include your M17026 leaders. If, therefore, you feel that they have given you excellent service, it is entirely appropriate to tip them.

Marrakech’s Menara Airport is the main port of entry for this tour and is well serviced by several airlines, including Air France and British Airways. As our guests come from all over the planet we do not include international flights in our tour prices.
