Spent 15 days in Morocco. Why I love this guide is that it provided very accurate information and very up to date. But be mindful that as all Eyewitness guides go, they are the perfect guide to tell you the detail while you are there standing in front of your subject. That being said, they do add insight to your visit. Eyewitness books are well made with great pictures and detailed explanation of key you will visit, but it is heavy. We had a driver and often would use it as a reference guide but leave it in the car. However, for the archaeologic and culturally significant sites very informative and for Volubilis it was truly indispensable and were thankful to take it with us. You can hire on-site guides here and their knowledge is probably very good, but if you choose as we did, we used this guide and toured site on our own. If the guards are there protecting the more well known mosaics and you are not with mobs of people, they may gesture for you to come closer to take pictures from a better vantage point or pour water across surface for you to see the colors better. Be sure to thank him his smile is precious.

This is a great book for reference before a trip as it will inspire you as it will build the list of places you will want to visit as you are planning. Our trip began in a very obscure but beautiful village 1.5 hours south of Essaouria for a family vacation. However, the remainder of my trip was spent crossing the the High and Middle Atlas, bounding across countless palmeries, visiting the heart of the Morocco film industry, riding camels in the Sahara. The royal cities of Meknes, Fes, and Marakkech as well as Essaouria, Rabat and Casablanca were all very intriguing.

Just returned from 2 weeks in Morocco and had this book with me (even though it is heavy). Good descriptions with appropriate pictures. Would have liked more info on the natural resources (geology, wildlife, plants). No mention of Temara Zoo near Rabat (the only zoo in Morocco) which is a great place to see native species in open, natural enclosures (think San Diego Zoo, but very small).

I particularly liked that it alerted me to the French art deco architecture of the 20s and 30s in Casablanca. I spent my free time photographing it.

This book is great for someone who doesn't need to discover the details of how to get around. I live in Morocco and bought this book for my parents in order for them to generate ideas of what they want to see. It has lovely pictures and brief good historical lessons. The maps are a bit lacking and the overall detail in the book for hotels are not very accurate, but that is what Google Maps and the internet are for. The book has great pictures and would complement a "Lonely Planet" type guide book quite well. For my family, this book was sufficient. Good Luck and Safe Travels!

Love the photos and drawing for the sights and places to visit. Great for planning and knowing what you will see. Not so helpful on selecting hotels etc. but basic info and alternatives to more comprehensive guides.

The Morocco guide was even more useful than DK Guides always seem to be and really fleshed out our visit. The composition was also excellent with a good selection of detailed maps to allow easy reference during excursions. A fellow traveler with an earlier edition of the guide complained that Rabat was described as being on the Mediterranean coast, but the current edition has it correctly located on the Atlantic coast. I mention this to illustrate that DK is excellent about proper updates.
