Morocco: Melting Pot of Cultures was my first tour with Road Scholar and it set the bar high. As a country, Morocco has a rich and diverse history which was brought to life by the variety of lectures and learning experiences on the tour. The different locations we visited-- from major cities, to small villages, to local ksars and cooperatives-- represent a wide swath of Morocco not seen on most tourist itineraries. Add this to the superior quality of the tour coordinator and leader as well as the knowledge of the local guides and you have the recipe for a most memorable and valuable educational travel experience. If Morocco is on your bucket list, this is the tour for you. If not, it should be.

Morocco is a fascinating, diverse, beautiful and complicated country, and this thoughtfully organized itinerary provided a good look at its many aspects. Our group leader, Nabil Akabli, possesses an impressive breadth and depth of knowledge of Morocco's religions, politics, languages and culture, which he shared generously. He was also wonderfully candid about his own life and family, and was always warm and approachable. This is an excellent trip. Go!

A delightful and fun filled experience that provided a wealth of information and insight about a country that has had a long history. I would highly recommend this program for anyone looking for a new and different experience in a part of the world that is developing and has much to offer.

Two and a half weeks is too short to Understand another culture, but this program surely makes a great effort and succeeds in making you think about that other culture differently.

We had a wonderful time in Morocco. The culture is so interesting and the various parts of the country so diverse. Loved the food too.

Morocco is a fabulous country. It is much more sophisticated and progressive than I every imagined. The guides and speakers were incredibly knowledgeable and the accommodation and food was wonderful.

I loved getting out of the big cities into the countryside and seeing the people. They were wonderfully welcoming even when we couldn't understand a word. Highlights: crossing the High-Atlas Mountains, seeing the 4 different climate zones, learning how Moroccans experience their faith. A disappointment was that we weren't free to wander in the old city medinas -- partly because it's easy to get lost in the maze-like alleyways.

It was a very interesting program and we learned a lot. Sometimes it was too difficult for some of the participants. Morocco is not prepared for people with handicaps so there are no handrails on the MANY rickety stairs we had to negotiate.
