São Paulo – Travel agency Latitudes, located in the city of São Paulo, is organizing a different type of trip to Morocco. The tour has a focus on culture and an expert in architecture and philosophy will serve as guide. The trip Morocco – Art and Culture in Maghreb with Emilio Moufarrige will take place from October 22 to November 2 and those interested can buy the trip until July 31.

Latitudes is an agency specializing in trips focusing on knowledge and promotes thematic routes in many destinations, among them Morocco, United Arab Emirates and Egypt. According to Juliana Zola, marketing manager, Morocco is the most popular among the Arab destinations.

“Morocco is a very diverse country and access is easier. For those planning to know the Arab world it is a gateway. It`s a safe country, hospitable and with good lodging options”, says the executive.

The tours through the North Africa country will be guided by Emilio Moufarrige, an architect and philosophy expert. A former professor at Mackenzie Presbiterian University, Moufarrige is the speaker in lectures, classes and seminars in the areas of philosophy, history, religions and myths. According to Zola, the consultant has been to Morocco at least six times as guide of tourist groups.

For the executive, the presence of an expert as guide shows the group the best ways to enjoy the trips and the most interesting spots in each place that are worth knowing. “It`s a very exclusive guidance”, she says. The October tour will go through the cities of Rabat, Chefchaouen, Fez, Meknes (including the archeological site of Volubilis), Casablanca and Marrakesh.

Zola says that, in general, the public looking for knowledge trips usually are over 40 years old. “They are well-traveled, very educated people after a different view, a more in-depth perspective on a destination, they are not there only to snap pictures”, she says.

For the trip to Morocco to happen, at least eight people need to confirm attendance. The group can include up to 20 people. In general, Latitudes takes three to five groups a year to the Arab destinations. The agency also organizes customized trips for couples, families and closed groups.
