Cara Ghassemian — Founder and Managing Director
Aussies in Morocco Tours was founded by its principal, Cara Ghassemian. An Australian lawyer with her own legal practice since 2006, Cara is a French enthusiast with a passion for travel.
With her wealth of experience travelling in Morocco, and support from fellow Morocco travel experts, Cara is well-placed to liaise with our Moroccan partners — providing a useful bridge between the two cultures in order to achieve the ideal tour for you, as a fellow Australian/English-speaker.
Inspired by Albert Camus, specifically his descriptions of the desert in L’hôte (The Guest), Cara first visited the French-speaking areas of the Mahgreb region of North Africa several years ago. She was so enchanted by the people, customs and landscapes of Morocco that she has returned there many times — making friends and connections along the way. It was from wanting to share the benefit of those experiences, especially tips and advice with other Australians travelling to the region, that Aussies in Morocco Tours was conceived.
Cara tells how she rediscovered a passion for languages and adventure in this article in the Law Society Journal: “Chasing the Exotic”
