Food

The food in Morocco is some of the most delicious in the world.  You will find seafood, lamb, beef, and chicken.  You will have tagines, bastillas, couscous, and medfouna (a type of Moroccan calzone).  Breakfast may be simply some warm msemmen with tea and fresh orange juice, or it may be a grand affair with eggs, olives, several types of bread, soup, and dates.  Tea is drunk all through the day, but coffee is also an option.  Lunch and dinner are always followed by fresh fruit.  Cookies are also very popular, and will be served continually throughout the day.  If you are a vegetarian, vegan, or have other dietary restrictions, please let us know at the time of booking your tour so that we can ensure proper arrangements are made.

History

History

Relations between the Kingdom of Morocco and the United States date back to the earliest days of U.S. history.  Morocco was the first country in the world to recognize the independence of the United States in 1777, and remains one of America's oldest and closest allies in the Middle East and North Africa.  Formal U.S. relations with Morocco date from 1787 when the U.S. Congress ratified a Treaty of Peace and Friendship between the two nations.  This treaty is still in force, making it the longest unbroken treaty relationship in U.S. history, and Tangier is home to the oldest U.S. diplomatic property in the world.  Morocco is also one of the few countries in Africa to extend visa-free travel to American citizens.
