Customs and  etiquette  in Morocco:

During your visit to Morocco, you will be in contact with people laborious  and friendly, extremely respectful of their traditions and customs. Respect local customs, is to show a basic courtesy to a welcoming country. To avoid embarrassment and misunderstanding, conform to the uses below.
Here are some basic rules:
Morocco is one of the most liberal Islamic countries - but you should respect and be sensitive to their customs and restrictions.

  • The main restriction a tourist will encounter is banned entry into the mosques if you are not a Muslim. This is unfortunate, as many mosques feature beautiful artistry of design. There are a few note-worthy exceptions: the Hassan II in Cassablanca, Mohammed V Mausoleum in Rabat, and Moulay Ismail Mausoleum in Meknes are open to all visitors.
  • During the month of Ramadan, when the believers fast each day until sunset, you will have a few more challenges than tourists visiting at other times as many establishments for food and drink will be closed. Not to worry; you still will be able to find many places open to eat during the day.
  • If you want to photograph someone, do not hesitate to ask her permission.
  • Avoid eating, drinking and smoking in public places during the period of Ramadan.
  • Also avoid touching the food with the left hand, considered impure by religion.
  •  Learn some arabic and berbere words before your departure.


  • Dress respectfully if you do not wish to attract undue attention. This typically means covering your body between your knees and elbows e.g. trousers, long shorts or skirt to the knee (at least) and short-sleeved shirts or t-shirts.
  • In rural areas women usually wear traditional clothes and you are encouraged to dress more conservatively when hiking in Atlas  mountains or sahara.
  • Openly criticize religion, prophet, king or monarchy.
  • Swim too close to villages or walking topless.

Learn a few words of the local languages.

Tipping is common and expected for most services. A gratuity of 5% in restaurants is the norm for good service. If you would like to take a picture of the locals ask  their permission first. You might be asked to tip for this as well.
If traveling in Morocco, tips are appreciated by your support team after the trip. The amount depends on your budget and appreciation of their work. Some trekkers give 15% of the total tour cost as tips.
responsible tourism :
We aim to set responsible tourism standards within the travel industry and to minimise the impact of our challenges on the environment within which we operate. The impact of tourism is already immense and it will increase. The travel industry can bring many benefits to local communities, including an injection of cash and employment for local people, preservation of native habitats and indigenous wildlife, and cultural exchange..
What you can do !

  • remove all unnecessary packaging. Many countries do not have the same refuse disposal systems as you are used to. We recomended that you all do as much as possible to minimise this, and to see that rubbish is disposed of responsibly. Be particularly aware of the problems of disposing of batteries, if in doubt bring them home with you.
  • Avoid leaving some waste (which you appear simple, cigarette filter ...) there and back with you if the country does not have infrastructure to eliminate waste. For example: a toilet paper can be burned on site.
  • respect  the local people and traditions.
