because we believe that everyone of us can be the change that the world needs to become a better place to live.
This short article will make you close to the answer of “who are we ?”, And “what are our aims ?”
The idea of The Alternative Morocco came from young locals, who worked in tourism and widely traveled around Morocco. Who is familiarized with touristy and non-touristy places all over the Country; met and received feedbacks from a huge number of travelers and tourists who visited morocco at least once. we understood that tourism in Morocco is not satisfying the curiosity of travelers, and that we as local must promote a different experience of tourism that allows an equitable cultural, material (interpersonal?) ... exchanges.
We want to create an environment that allows healthy interactions between locals and travelers. We are aiming to be that channel of enhanced contact, which will provide tourists with authentic educational and quality experiences, in an unstructured and spontaneous manner, for a better understanding of cultural differences, customs, life style, and traditional knowledge and believes of the local communities.
Believing strongly that Morocco and the whole world need better communication canals, and knowing that tourism is the most dominant canal that can sustain a better knowledge,a nd understanding to the other communities and the nature surrounding us.
We were and we are always believing that the world can be a better place where we accept each other differences differently, and where we speak one language which is smiling in front of our differences.
From now on We will be organizing trips and tours, to the Berber villages in the southeastern Morocco and the nomads places ( caves and tents), where we all as a staff and travelers; let me say cultural-explorers; will live few days; at least for once in lifetime; in the reality of those people lives.
You may ask why those places ?
Well, we think that those places are not that much impacted with tourism industry, which means we as a part of the communities living there can sustain a positive interactions between locals and visitors, culturally talking before any of the material sides.
And knowing that we can give example to the so touristy places to rethink about their way of managing tourism again.
we believe that you would be a part to succeed this project.
Also a question would appear in your heads ! What’s the difference between our trips and the thousands others that all agencies offer everywhere ?
We are a group of degreed young people in different fields ( geology, English studies, geography)and all of us are Local official Guides, And passionate with the Berber culture, history, mythology ..., and we worked in tourism for a couple of years, and one of the main things that let us get involved in this project is realizing that most of the tourist and travelers take their flights back home with few pictures on their electronic devices, and a feeling of loving landscapes, but no idea about the way those communities are living, here we go life style tradition believes,... a culture civilization and history ....
We want our costumers’ through our tours to see those things from a closer perspective, and be a part of the visited communities, by helping families in their daily life, teaching kids languages, to play a music instrument, anything you can do will let you get closer to the people, not to mention the hospitality of the Berbers.
What should you do to be a part of the project ?
Easy all you need to do is to pack your stuffs and book a ticket to Marrakech.
you are already in Morocco ! Even better, come to Marrakech, and contact us and we will arrange a way to meet you, as you can always contact us for more information ;)
