Taste of morocco, Morocco - Jan 3 - Jan 10, 2019

Jan 19: Marrakech, Skoura, Merzouga, (with overnight stay in desert via Camel Ride), Ouarzazate.
Thank you so much Kim Kim for assessing my family group needs and linking me with such a wonderful travel consultant: Brahim (from Orion Trek Voyages) who worked closely with me via email/message frequently to ensure we had a plan for our holiday that met the needs for all of our group. He arranged wonderful accommodation in each place we stayed (especially Riad Villa el Arsa in Marrakech medina and Chez Talout in Skoura) and provided us with the best driver (Rashid from EMS - Essaouira Multiservice) who was so much more than a driver. He had completed a degree in tourism and made the 4 day trip out to Erg Chebbi and back such a memorable experience. He went out of his way to show us sites not on our itinerary, took many photos of our group and sent them to us and ensured we were all safe and well cared for whilst travelling and at each stop. Travelling with my grown up children and parents could have been a challenge but Rashid was continually happy, polite and accommodating. It felt as if he was part of the family and it was a sad farewell on return to Marrakech. A truly fantastic holiday, thanks so much to all involved. A very memorable experience. Would highly recommend all mentioned to ensure a wonderful holiday. Michele and John Gambrill (John & Robyn Gambrill, Jade Gambrill & Antony Dickenson)

Trip to morocco, Morocco - Dec 27 - Jan 6, 2019

This trip to Morocco was an absolute dream!!! I’m never going back to planning my own trips again. Every detail was thought through, and I was prepared for everything.

Brahim was absolutely incredible, from planning the trip together all the way to when we had an issue getting to our last bus and he sent someone to find us and make sure we made it okay.

Our driver and tour guide from Marrakesh to Fez, Rashid, was a god send. He showed us so many things we never would have known to see, and even took us to the place where we ended up buying our rug. He took photos of us the entire time and made us feel safe and taught us so much.

Overall, we can’t stop raving about our trip and about KimKim and about Brahim. We will definitely be using the service again.

Brahim guided us along the way since the early planning stages till we left.
The trip was immaculately planned and we mostly stayed in Riad's (local boutique hotels) and travelled by road to explore the country. Our driver Rashid picked us up at the airport in Marrakech and stayed with us the entire almost 2000 kms we drove. He was extremely courteous and helpful even going the extra mile and taking photos and guiding us where necessary.

We thank Orion travels and Kimkim for creating wonderful memories on this trip.

Wish you a very Happy New Year!

Trip to morocco, Morocco - Dec 14 - Dec 22, 2018

Traveler: Victoria S. - Local specialist: Brahim Bourrich

Our trip to Morocco was absolutely one of the best experiences in our life! It took several tries to create the right itinerary for us as we had specific timelines and locations, but Brahim was very helpful in coordinating the agenda and is very knowledgeable on the best routes. We went Marrakech, Ourzazate, Erg Chebbi, Fez, Chefchouen, and Casablanca, and I would recommend to not miss any one of these cities because they each entrance you like no other.

Our trip to Morocco was absolutely one of the best experiences in our life! It took several tries to create the right itinerary for us as we had specific timelines and locations, but Brahim was very helpful in coordinating the agenda and is very knowledgeable on the best routes. We went Marrakech, Ourzazate, Erg Chebbi, Fez, Chefchouen, and Casablanca, and I would recommend to not miss any one of these cities because they each entrance you like no other. Along with many others we made stops at on the way, like the Berber Kasbah and the Todra Gordes. These are sights you cannot find anywhere else!
Our Driver Mohammed was fantastic. He spoke great English, was reliable, gave us good recommendations, shared the history about all the places we came across and ensured we felt safe at all times. We really liked our City guides in Marrakech and Fez. They were extremely knowledgeable about the rich history and present culture, helped us navigate through the city so well that the 6-8 hours we had felt like 2, and they led us to experience true life like the locals. They really listened to any of our requests and made it all happen. Our favorite was definitely the Erg Chebbi experience. The people there are so kind and so great! And knowing it was my birthday trip, Brahim and the team really made it an even better experience. I would absolutely request all these people again.
With that said, with the cost of the trip, although in good locations I thought the hotels in most locations could have been a lot better. We booked our own hotel in Marrakech and that was by far the best one we had. The ones booked by the agency were probably 2.5 stars, but service in each was very good. We barely stayed there, so it wasn’t terrible, but I would expect better knowing the conversion rate.
The other things we weren’t too fond of is the stops we would make that were represented as an experience, but really we were being coerced to buy things- Rugs, Leather, Art. Some folks might enjoy this, and we did enjoy some of the places for sure, but ended up spending way too much time on these.
Lastly, we changed our flight arrangements to leave out of Casablanca so we can visit Rick’s Café, but only found out there that they open in the evening, and our itinerary had us there only during the day, so we really never saw the city after making the changes, and that was a bit disappointing.
For food, we were taken to some nice restaurants, and made our own reservations in Marrakech but mainly followed our guides advice, and were not disappointed. But you have to be prepared to eat whatever is around at the time, or I would suggest to always get something for the road.
All in all, a great experience with everyone we met along the way! The service and hospitality is 5-stars!

Salam Victoria,

Thank you very much for having taken your time to provide me with your valuable feedback relating to your trip and the services I personally arranged for you. I am sure it is going to help me and my future travelers to maximize the value of their time traveling in my country.

Also, it has been a great honor for me to be your local travel specialist taking care of your wishes in order to make this trip a lifetime experience for you full of joy, fun, and happiness especially that it is arranged for your birthday. So, please note that I have well noted all your helpful comments and I will share your feedback with my driver Mohamed and I am sure he will be very happy to receive it, the same for any provider of mine that helped to achieve this dream!

Regarding the accommodations I have arranged for you, they are 3* accommodations according to local standards. They are loved by my travelers, but for sure the accommodation you booked on your own is not similar to them because it's a 5* Riad that I also use for travelers who prefer to upgrade their stays and live the Moroccan luxury touch.

Generally and as you said, the service and hospitality of the local people are 5-stars! I am here always for you, your friends, your family, and for sure for all my travelers to keep inspiring everyone to love my destination and my country Morocco!

Last but not least, I want to take this opportunity to wish you and your Family, the very best. May 2019 be a year filled with laughter, health, adventures, and success for you, your family, your colleagues, and your friends.

My best regards,
Brahim

I was so delighted with this amazing trip to Morocco with my parents. I normally do all of my own travel planning and have never used a service like this so initially I was hesistant. So glad I took a risk and went with KimKim. From the beginning Brahim was very attentive to every detail and took time to understand our needs so that he could plan the perfect customized itinerary. He made sure that all of the hotels would be good for my retired parents as well as for me. Getting picked up from the airport and to our first Riad was very easy. I’m glad we had a guide because navigating Moroccan Medina’s can be tricky. Overall the trip logistics went very smoothly and it was so nice not having to worry or stress over things. When we did have a few small mishaps, Brahim immediately contacted me to rectify the situation. Really amazing customer service.

I was SUPER impressed by our driver Mohammed as well. He was kind, patient, and flexible. He also was a very safe driver, who followed the speed limit, used caution on difficult roads, and kept us safe from some crazy cars on the road. My parents fell in love with him and have even invited him to come visit them in California.

I also really enjoyed our private Fes tour guide Hafid. Not only was he hilarious and entertaining but he had a deep k owl edge of the town’s history.

In terms of memorable cities, I think Chefchouen and the Fes Medina are a tie. Both so unique- like nothing I’ve experienced before. But really, every city we visited was beautiful. The mosaics, fountains, and ever changing landscapes were awesome. I was surprised too by how many small towns and villages we crossed along the way. Stopping for lunch or to explore them as we drove between major cities was one of my favorite things about the trip.

Our guide in Marrakech, Mohammed, was very personable but not very informative. He showed us Le Jardin Majorelle, Le Palais de la Bahia and several shops of quite high quality, but we left feeling there was much more to see, which was not the case in Fes or Rabat. Our favorite places were Chefchaouen, Chellah Necropolis (especially the storks), our two Riads in Fes (Le Calife) and Marrakech (Kaiss), Volubilis and Lixus. The Ouzud waterfalls and the Barbary Macaques there were also memorable.

Hello Ben,

Thank you very much for your feedback which is deeply appreciated and helps me and my future travelers to read and learn from your own travel experience. I am very happy to hear you have enjoyed your trip and my local providers' services. I have sent you a check-in email in our conversation during your travel to follow up on your trip and if there is anything I can do for you but did not hear back from you which may be due to the network or you were not checking your emails.

Just after receiving your feedback, I noted your satisfaction remark and immediately called my local driver Rachid to review all the trip and what was wrong, I understood from him that you have decided last minute to skip the bird-watching activity on your way to Asilah, and it was your own decision as far as everything was arranged and ready for you. Rachid proposed to enjoy another road and make some stops for you which I believe went very well as you mentioned above. Also, I have been informed that you have decided to skip the local restaurant in Chefchaouen you selected on your own due to its location. Also, the restaurant in Rabat you selected was far more than you expected and you were not happy. Now, I understand the reason why you were not very satisfied; I wished I could help with these arrangements as well, but you have decided to book them on your own and I respect that. Normally my drivers know a lot and it would have been better to check with them for any local restaurants or services you wish to enjoy then you can decide to take their recommendation or keep your own selection.

I 'll always be here for you the soon new plans for Morocco are ready.

All the best,
Brahim

Kind hearted people with much integrity. The guide we had in Marakesh--- Kahil was so knowledgable and helpful. Very kind man and full of so much knowledge and history. Rachid --our guide on our five day adventure into the Atlas Mountains and southern Morocco -- he was like family to us on. We had such fun and extraordinary experiences. Rachid is also an excellent photographer (a good eye) and he took and shared many photos he had taken of us during our time together. We learned much about the Berber people. He took us to several Cooperatives so we could see first hand the work of the Moroccan people - in their small villages. We toured the Argon Oil Cooperate, Berber Carpet Cooperative, the Rose Water Cooperative, the Fossil Cooperative, the Tannery and Leather Cooperative, the Spice and Saffron Cooperative. ... and so on. We learned so much about the Medinas in the villages, and the Kasbahs. We learned of the history of the Berber people. Then of course our night in the Sahara Africa with the Camal Caravan oh my! We love dour night in the Sahara with the great food and singing and drumming by the fire under the stars. The entire trip had such amazing food. Came back with all sorts of Moroccan spices, so our home now smells of Morocco. We have used our Tagines every day since being back.

I can't say enough good things about our experience in Morocco. We love the Moroccan people. We love the smells, the colors, the Call to Prayer. We loved all of it.

We are so looking forward to coming back to Morocco. We will definitely work with the same tour company. Perhaps next year!

En Shallah.

This was my first booking on Kimkim and it was pretty seamless. The costs of this are pretty high, but it is okay if you do not have enough time to plan yourself. I did a bunch of things with my boyfriend during our ten days in Morocco. We did have a few hiccups like the driver not picking us up in chefcheoun or the walking guide not arriving.

This was my first booking on Kimkim and it was pretty seamless. The costs of this are pretty high, but it is okay if you do not have enough time to plan yourself. I did a bunch of things with my boyfriend during our ten days in Morocco. We did have a few hiccups like the driver not picking us up in chefcheoun or the walking guide not arriving. However, the rest of the trip went smooth. The local private driver we had during our Sahara trip, Youssef, was amazing. He was super enthusiastic and great. My bf and I ended up hanging out with him in Marrakesh as well! Our walking guide in fez was great- he was super informative and enthusiastic. Our walking guide in Marrakesh was okay- he was a bit bland and his English was not as great- unfortunately he was pretty quiet for a lot of the time which was fine but I wish we had the same one from fez! One negative is that there’s a few “hidden” costs and people try to offer you things for free or in good faith but then ask for money- it’s annoying! For example, when we were in our riad in Marrakesh, we asked for coffee a few times thinking it was free. In the end they asked for money before I checked out- this should have been communicated beforehand since the states offer free things or are more upfront with costs. The riads we stayed at were good- we loved a lot of them especially the one in ourzazate. The one in Marrakesh didn’t have hot water so it was a bit hard to shower but other than that no issues. Overall- it was great having Brahim as a guide as he was alert and attentive. He was quick to respond and made the kimkim experience a positive one.

It was very helpful that you informed me directly and you shared your feedback with me while you are in Morocco, so thank you very much too, which helps me to adjust everything and also to offer you alternative choices to make your trip very memorable. I wished I have been informed also about the shower in Riad Sabah being cold so I can intervene and check what was wrong for you. As you know, when my travelers contact us on our emergency phone as you did, they give us the opportunity to react faster and in a better way to ensure the best solution right away.

Till next time, I am wishing all the best,

Brahim was an excellent trip planner for us. We are retired univ profs in our 70s, fit and adventurous and well-traveled.

My husband and I like to engage with our guides and discuss not only all we learned from them about Morocco, but also their lives and experiences. The Dar Baraka in Marrakesh was wonderful, esp the roof top where we had breakfast. I can't remember the name of our first guide in Marrakesh, who we enjoyed being with. He also taught French in secondary school, and as we were teachers (and my husband speaks French) we got along very well. Our guide for our tour in the desert and Ait Benhaddou was Rashid (from Essaouira) -- another great companion and good conversationalist. The driver was excellent, which we appreciated. Our guide Samir accompanied us to the Berber home stay, where we met the 80 year old pater familias and other family members. Wonderful! And our day in Tangier with Khalid was also memorable -- beautiful weather, interesting sights, good conversation. I'm so glad I found your website -- it was truly a great experience!

A highlight for us was the blue city of Chefchaouen, but honestly, Morocco is a stunning country with amazing landscapes, architecture, and culture, so it was all a highlight.

Our private driver, Rachid, was very punctual, responsible, and attentive to our needs. He would arrive on time every day and before arriving at our accommodation, he would call ahead to make sure they were ready for us. He was also great about suggesting local places to eat and when we should stop because some of our days were quite long in the car given the nature of the particular tour we chose. He also took some really excellent photographs of us (he's into photography). He is a driver that I would recommend other travelers to request :)

Additionally, the accommodation that was selected for us was just what we wanted--not big hotels, but local Riads (traditional Moroccan houses). One of the riads, Riad Sabah in Marrakech, was a highlight because the owner, Hans (he is from Germany, but lives in Marrakech because his wife is Moroccan) was so friendly and helpful and really made our stay pleasant.

Lastly, the local guides we had (Hafid in Fès and Khalid in Marrakech) spoke excellent English and were very knowledgeable.

All in all, this was a very positive experience and most importantly, it was very stress free. We chose to give Kimkim a try because with our busy work schedules, we did not have the time to plan and do our own research, so we wanted someone that could make this as stress free for us as possible. It was great waking up every day with our driver at the ready letting us know what our itinerary was for the day, not having to worry about how we were going to get to the next place, and arriving with our accommodation ready. Each day, we just got to sit back and enjoy, which is exactly what we needed. Though it was a little more expensive than we would have liked, time and zero stress is a luxury you pay for :)

Morocco tour, Morocco - Oct 20 - Oct 26, 2018

Traveler: Shannon B. - Local specialist: Brahim Bourrich

Had a great, albeit too short, experience in Morocco! Brahim was able to tailor an experience to our short timeline. The trip was a great balance of travel between locations, local tours, and some free downtime to explore on our own. It was exactly what we were hoping to get out of the trip. Our driver, Rashid, was absolutely fantastic; provided us with comfortable transit between Casablanca, Tangier, and Fez - and he was great to talk to and share information with us about Morocco. ... read more

Overall, I would highly recommend the kimkim team and would definitely use them again for our next trip where we hopefully will have more time to explore all the amazing sites that Morocco has to offer.

Trip to morocco, Morocco - Oct 17 - Oct 21, 2018

Traveler: Lisa R. - Local specialist: Brahim Bourrich

Brahim did an excellent job of creating a seamless itinerary that blended my unique time constraints with my location preferences. (I only had 5 days in Morocco and wanted to fly into Tangier and out of Fes.) In hindsight, I probably would have added another day in Chefchaouen and removed a day in Fes, but this change reflects my own personal preferences in hindsight and does not reflect on Brahim's planning or judgment in any way.

Brahim was simply fantastic, and I would highly recommend working with him.

This was my first time using Kimkim, and I would certainly use them again, especially for trips that I do not want to logistically plan myself. There is a real sense of security in knowing that Brahim and his team were available to me 24/7 in case anything came up, and I really appreciate that level of support and customer service.

!! شكرا جزيلا! استمتعت بالسفر إلى المغرب كثيراً

Morocco trip, Morocco - Sep 9 - Sep 15, 2018

Traveler: NAZURAH M. - Local specialist: Brahim Bourrich

Overall, the trip was amazing. Morocco is really one of the places that I would want to go again. It was my first time using KimKim as I would usually travel in the Europe on my own, without having a tour guide. However, since we are a bit unfamiliar with how things are in Morocco, and the limited usage of English there, we decided to have a travel guide there.

Overall, the trip was amazing. Morocco is really one of the places that I would want to go again. It was my first time using KimKim as I would usually travel in the Europe on my own, without having a tour guide. However, since we are a bit unfamiliar with how things are in Morocco, and the limited usage of English there, we decided to have a travel guide there. Planning for the trip was made easy with KimKim, as Brahim and the team came up with the itinerary and we all agreed to it, with some amendment. The driver Mohammed was really helpful through out the journey, and made us comfortable. However, the distance from where the car could drop us to the Riad was bit too far for my parents, who had bad knees. It was partly our mistake as we thought it was not that far to walk, but actually took us good 15 minutes. (It was alright for my friend and I but was too much for my parents).

We also had amazing experience staying at the Riad, good opportunity to feel how living in Moroccan house like.

Good job KimKim! Thank you for all the help.

My local driver Mohamed is going to be very happy when I share your comments with him; he is one of my best drivers and all my clients love travling with him. We are all working together as brothers and very close friends to make sure our travelers enjoy the real Morocco full of local feelings.

Regarding the Riad and how far it is from where the car stops; I have well noted this point and for sure it's very helpful to hear back from you about my services because it helps me evaluate the accommodations I use for my travelers. I'll make sure also my whole team knows about this detail because ensuring your comfort (your parents as well) is on top of my duties, and I am very happy to do so.

Thanks a lot again and the honor is ours to have you joining our trustworthy community.

All the best,

4 days in marrakech, Morocco - Aug 19 - Aug 22, 2018

Traveler: Arun M. - Local specialist: Brahim Bourrich

Tailor-made, precise, seamless and absolute comfort. These are the attributes we generally look for when booking a trip or part of the trip through someone. When we started our discussions with Brahim, right from the get go , he was attentive, understanding and even compassionate when taking down our requests and needs. A beautiful country which it is, Morocco, an experience through kimkim makes it much more enriching and fulfilling. Lastly, as all curated trips, this wont be easy on the pockets, but you get every worth of your dime !
