It has been ten years since my first visit to Morocco, but we are going again in May.  I had no security concerns then to speak of, and have none now.

You should always go to the State Department site to review the concerns, warnings, and other info about street scams, etc.  I don't think you will find anything that is overly concerning that you would not find in many cities in the USA.  You can sign up for the STEP program, which will cause you to receive emails from the State Dept. should anything new arise of concern.

Also go to the CDC site and see what health precautions are needed for any country you are visiting.  It will show vaccinations suggested, and other useful information.

Don't fret, and have a good tour.  I plan to.

I just came back from Morocco about 5 or 6 weeks ago.  Someone on this forum just got back and stated that there was a lot of police presence and police following the tour bus, etc.  Not a bad thing!  That stated, I would do as Randy said.  Keep watching the State Department sites.  Currently, there is a general travel warning for all travel. That stated, I would still plan on going.  I feel if Gate 1 is continuing with the trip, then it should be fine. 

When I was there, I never felt unsafe.  For the most part, you are with a group and as anywhere, be aware of your surroundings.  You should be fine!
