Is it possible to just have a driver not a tour?

Jump to last reply

We are in our early 60s and usually travel independently and reasonably slowly. In places like Myanmar and Sri Lanka we have organised a driver to go from A to B. This works well for us as we can stop where we like and travel as slowly as we like. We can also have the fun of researching and choosing accommodation which gives us the option to mix cheaper places with a bit of luxury.

I have been in touch with a couple of companies in Morocco who offer "Tailor made" tours. One company names the accommodation places, the other keeps the info close just saying something like "Riad with pool". These tours are more expensive than I'd expected.

We intend to be in Morocco for about 3 weeks in September. We will be arriving in Morocco from Spain via ferry and leaving by air to UK.

We will want to have 3-4 days in both Fes and Marrakesh (it seems silly to have a driver / guide hanging about while we are staying in a city)
Is it possible to have several shorter "tours" such as:
- Chefchaouen to Fes
- Fes to Merzouga
- Merzouga across High Atlas to Essouria

I'd appreciate guidance on options and perhaps advice on how to organise drivers / tours
