“The most exciting thing about Morocco is its enormous diversity,” says travel writer, Lonely Planet author and resident Morocco expert, Helen Ranger.
“There are ancient cities full of the history of a distinctly different culture, there are desert sands, national parks, major mountain ranges, verdant winelands, and a truly beautiful coastline with pretty gnarly surf. But what makes it all sing is the people: whether they’re city slickers, medina artisans, rural women or desert nomads – they’re friendly and hospitable and enormously proud of their country.”
Helen is perfectly placed to design a trip tailor-made for you. Lured to Morocco by the Fes Festival of World Sacred Music in 2002, she has lived in Fez for more than thirteen years and has travelled extensively across Morocco during research trips for Lonely Planet as well as magazine and blog articles.
Helen set up Fez Riads twelve years ago and has helped thousands of people find exactly the right guesthouse in Fez. Now her insider knowledge is being put to greater use, and Helen will help you make the most of your time in this diverse country.
Whether you have a few days or a few weeks, we’ll make sure that you discover your Morocco, whatever your interests.
Helen has contributed to three Lonely Planet books on Morocco: Fez Encounter and two editions of the country guide for which she wrote the chapters on the Imperial Cities, Middle Atlas and the East, the Mediterranean Coast and the Rif and the Atlantic Coast.
