Off-season Morocco

Jump to last reply

I've found myself with some unexpected time off and I'm considering traveling to Morocco for the first in early December.

I'm a 40 year old, solo female traveler. I'm considering hiring a guide but not going with a group and I have a couple of questions:

1. As a caucasian American, my friends who are experienced with Morocco are concerned that I'll be aggressively pestered in the larger cities to the point of misery if I attempt to wander alone. They actually thought the pestering could be worse in the off-season because there aren't as many people to support the local businesses so the ones who are there receive even more attention.

Can anyone advise on what this aspect is like during the off-season?

2. Has anyone traveled solo in Morocco (perhaps with a guide)? Were you able to meet other travelers along the way? What kinds of settings/locations were best suited to meeting others?

3. Annoying pestering aside, in larger cities, is it safe to explore solo?

While I'm up for the adventure of solo travel, I'm kind of concerned about feeling exiled. I like the idea of the freedom I'd have with my own guide but if I'm going to be exiled and pestered to death, I may do the trip differently.

Thanks in advance.
