We are planning to visit Morocco this fall. We wonder if forum folk have witnessed or experienced any notable circumstances facing Americans travelling in Muslim nations since the attacks on the United States and the American response to terrorism.

Hi Mr. Rick's cafe--

I don't have an answer for you but I'm just beginning to think about putting a trip to Morocco together. Could you please share your itinerary? Are you going on a tour? If not, it would be helpful to know which cities you'll be visiting and for how long, what kind of transportation you intend to use, hotels etc. Did you put it together yourself, or have some help from an agency? Please help as this Africa forum doesn't have too many visitors and information is a bit hard to come by. Thanks in advance.

If you are interested, you can check out my trip report and photos from my trip to Morocco in 2000.


I didn't do a tour, but traveled on my own. It may give you some ideas. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

FYI, there is an article in the New York Times travel section today about Marrakesh. Morocco sounds fascinating!

I just came back from Morocco the end of November and it was fantastic. The people are very lovely and can't seem to do enough for you. They are very pro-American. The scenery is beautiful and the food delicious. I went with Overseas Adventure Travel and we had 12 in our group. Our trip leader was exceptionally good and we all felt we got alot of value for the money. We camped in the desert for 3 nights and got to visit several homes during the trip. I would recommend this trip highly.
