It will cost about $1300 air and land package from New York on Royal Air Maroc. First 25 persons for rented coach, guide, two meals per day, 4 and 5 star hotels. Air only at a reduced price will also be available with fixed October 5 departure and optional return dates.
Like the Moroccan-American Friendship tour, the touristic will be combined with visits with serving volunteers, meetings with Peace Corps and Embassy staff, reunion with Moroccans connected with Peace Corps and the U.S., such as the Moroccan Chapter of the University of Minnesota Alumni Association. Like the Friendship tour where we visited a women’s shelter; the Al Akhawayn University, the American-style university in Ifrane; Parliament; Riads under transformation; and the American Language Center of Marrakech, we plan to visit former volunteer sites, see USAID development activities and tour the horticulture transformation in Agadir and Taroudant.
