In the spirit of my background as a lawyer, I decided to apply my experience to a different kind of case. This trial was brought to the ‘Common Sense Court of Australia’ in order to settle some of the questions and concerns you may have about booking a tour in Morocco. After gathering and analysing the evidence, the verdict is clear: Aussies In Morocco Tours™ is an excellent choice for Australians travelling to Morocco.
1st Plaintiff: Price
When booking a tour, it can be tempting to go for the cheapest one. And hey, we get it – who doesn’t love a bargain? The issue here is that not all tours are created equal, even though it might appear that way. At Aussies In Morocco Tours ™, it is all about you and your enjoyment.
You want a wildlife tour guide? We get you a wildlife tour guide; not just any guide (yet call them a “wildlife” guide). We also cover some dinners and not just breakfast. We give you heaps of options for things to see and do in your itinerary and don’t just plonk you at a retreat for days on end to paint the view (unless that is what you want of course!). We offer 3-4 stars in authentic accommodation, 4WDs no matter the size of the party travelling, crisis insurance and strong local connections in case of any dramas in Morocco.
Unfortunately, while other tours pitch themselves at a similar standard, many do not uphold the same accommodation, travel or security standards. We want you to have an unforgettable holiday in Morocco for all the right reasons, and we are confident that our facilities and flexibility will help you achieve this.
2nd Plaintiff: Moroccan suppliers
While this may save your friends a bit of money, it could also buy them a whole load of grief.
Your local guide may promise the world to you, but at the end of the day, their services are not guaranteed or insured. Plans don’t work out as promised? Bad luck, there’s noone else you can contact to see if it can be sorted, now.
We at Aussies In Morocco Tours™ design reliable, tailor-made and secure tours. We are patient with your enquiries and English is our mother tongue. As fellow Australians, operating under Australian law with Australian insurance companies, we understand your needs. Because of this, you can kick back and relax, comforted by the fact we are here to support your entire journey — not just until we receive your booking fee.
3rd Plaintiff: European suppliers, large and small, operating in Morocco
At Aussies In Morocco Tours™ you will be communicating with 1, maximum 2 people throughout the entire process. Cara and Tracey are based in Australia, and live and breathe the same culture as you. We already know many of the questions you will have for us – because we once had the same questions ourselves. Want to know where to find the best quality tailor-made linen dresses, bespoke jewellery or leather bags? Or perhaps you want to ease your concerns about dressing standards, local jargon and how to avoid scams? Whatever it is, we are delighted to help.
Of course, we are also in the same time-zone as you, so if you do need to quickly call us on your work break, you can be sure we will be awake and happy to answer your questions. The bottom-line is that we are passionate and excited to help design the unique holiday you have always dreamed of and give you the inside tips to ensure it is as smooth-sailing as possible.
4th Plaintiff: Large Australian operators
With many of the large tour buses, you will be carted around to all the main sites, have time to snap a quick picture, and be ushered back onboard to tick off the next destination. You’ll probably stay at large, impersonal, western style resorts, but will likely miss out on the rich experience that comes with direct interaction with Moroccan people and culture.
At Aussies In Morocco Tours™, we invite you to discover the authenticity and beauty of this land through a personalised experience. To organise this, we have extended phone and email conversations with you, leaning on our own wealth of in-country travel experience. On top of this, our excellent relationships and experience with our local suppliers gives us the flexibility to really organise the trip you want to experience, not the standardised one that other businesses often offer.
5th Plaintiff: Other boutique Australian operators
You know what, we are going to surprise you here. If you find another Australian boutique tour operator that is more informative, responsive, flexible, current and with which you feel more comfortable— go with that operator and have a wonderful time.
