Avoid the cheap, low budget Tour operators; they are downright unprofessional.
Low budget operators often do everything poorly. Here are the main reasons why low budget operators are a bad idea:
Drivers, Hotels, Restaurants and Transport. When you travel with a budget operator, you are directly contributing to the exploitation of the poorest people – the drivers, waiters. There are NO low budget companies that respect the wage recommendations. Budget companies are able to offer low priced tours because they do not pay their crews an honest wage. Quality Marrakech Tour and Excursion operators do not compromise the welfare of their staff in order to sell a tour. The best Morocco Tours companies pay the highest wages and are members of MOROCCO TOURISM. Read more about drivers mistreatment on cheap Morocco Tours, Travel Morocco, Vacation to Marrakech.
Inferior Guides, The most important factor in the safety and success of Travel Morocco, Vacation to Marrakech is the knowledge and skill of your guide. However, low budget operators often hire freelance guides with little experience, poor English language ability, and no medical training. The competence of a guide is not always obvious until a crisis emerges, but by then it is too late. Quality guides do not work for the low budget operators. Quality guides do not wait around for clients to walk in, hoping for some work. Quality guides are hired full time by the top operators and are busy leading groups on scheduled tours, week after week.
