In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation across the globe, we have decided to postpone all of our private tours to Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia until August 1, 2020. We will adjust the date according to updated travel advisories.
Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia have closed their land borders and suspended all international flights until further notice. Each of these countries are imposing a general lockdown and self-quarantine guidelines in an attempt to counter the spread of the virus. Tunisia in particular has been featured on international headlines for their creative use of police robots for lockdown patrol and local initiatives to keep the country safe.
