Our trip to Morocco was truly spectacular and far exceeded are already high hopes of being an epic family adventure (two parents and two boys ages 9 and 6). We typically hate trip planning and KimKim made it fun! I am actually excited to "plan" our next trip with KimKim....because, well...we don't actually have to plan it! The entire process leading up to the trip was wonderful, organized, and very well thought-out. I truly cannot imagine planning another international family adventure without KimKim's help!

Once the trip began we were taken care of by OriginalTravels (the travel agency KimKim worked with in Morocco). Even though I had planned and helped setup the trip, I was very excited to learn that we had a guide/driver (Tarik) to help us at every moment of our adventure. Tarik made the trip truly wonderful...he was energetic, knowledgable, fun and thoughtful. Plus, Tarik's driving skills are unmatched! We were in such safe hands. Also, because Tarik helped us with everything (e.g. calling ahead to the hotels to make sure someone was there to greet us, answering questions, finding bathrooms along the route, etc) my husband and I got to enjoy our family and the experience, rather than stressing about navigation, or where to find kid-friendly food, etc.

As for the actual trip, it was 14 days of wonderful and I will not list everything here. However, one of the most memorable experiences (and the one place I wish we had stayed longer) was Marrakech, specifically, the night market. It was fascinating, and since we had a guide to show us around (Hanan) there was no stress wondering if we were "doing things right". The whole family loved it!

The family was lovely, so I don't want this review to take away at all from them. However, KimKim made it sound like our family would be eating and spending time with another family (and we were told that they had two young kids around the same ages as ours). However, what we actually got was a family with a 19 yro, and we were really "served" food by the family, not really chatting or spending much time together. To be honest, this felt pretty weird being served by a Moroccan family...we had really wanted to spend time with them instead. The food though was delicious!

She went with the flow with our kids, showed us the highlights, and answered all of our questions. She was just spectacular (she and Tarik as our guide/driver made the "dream team"!).

Our tour guide was not my favorite (Asdean). He was very nice, but when we told him we didn't want to do certain things, he kept pushing back and ignored it. This made the tour immediately start off on the wrong foot. Also, I had not been prepared for the pressure to purchase items. Asdean took us places (like a rug seller's store) and then had us sit there and look at rugs even though we had no intention to purchase anything.

The description made it sound like our kids would get to make pottery from start to finish. So, when we just went to see how the experts made pottery there were a lot of tears.

This trip was actually 6 hours, so I don't know why KimKim says 4.5 hours. Also, this is the one issue I had with the entire itinerary - driving 6 hours on the day of our flights was not a great setup for a family with two young kids. I didn't realize this at the time, but in retrospect, we should have made sure to arrive in Casablanca the day before and I wish KimKim had suggested it.

I have ridden horses all over the world but this is the first time I felt really bad for the horses and a bit unsafe riding. 1. The horses don’t get breaks between rides so they are super tired and irritable. 2. One of the horses we rode on was sick and sneezing the whole time. 3. Because the horses are tired and irritable one of them was constantly aggravating other horses. One of our horses almost went into a fight and the horse it almost fought with then went ahead and fought another horse and the two bucked off their riders 4. Usually you are supposed to take off saddle after a ride but of course since there’s no breaks for the poor horses the saddles stay on

We loved staying in Riads but be prepared for lots of stairs). There is a lot of driving involved (which they tell you about up front), but you need to be prepared for that. Faissal had stops planned but was also happy to stop if we needed additional breaks or for photo ops. Overall a memorable trip.

We just returned from a tour organized by KimKim and all 4 of us were delighted. None of us had ever hired a private driver/tour guide before when traveling so didn't know what to expect. While not ideal for many places, I highly recommend doing this for first trip to Morocco. We were able to see many cities/locations with ease. Our driver, Saadane, was excellent. A great driver, extremely personable and knowledgeable, kind, easy-going - perfect for us. At no point did we feel anything but spoiled, honestly, with comfortable transport, always fresh water, stops along the way for coffee.
