Priscilla's Moroccan Trip
Summary of the trip planning conversation
It is very nice to receive your inquiry regarding a personalised trip to Morocco. It is a most colorful, lively, fascinating and stimulating country.
My name is Larbi and I am a Moroccan, born and bred. I have been working in tourism services for 18 years now. I know my country very well and can readily assist you in developing an ideal tour. You can read more about me in my Profile.
You have plenty of time to visit and explore many very contrasting areas of this vast country:-
The Imperial Cities in the north e.g. Casablanca, Fes, Meknes; very impressive.
Chefchaouen (the "Blue City") is a smaller but delightful town (also in the northern area).
Marrakech (south central Morocco); bustling, colourful and most exciting.
The High Atlas (south central Morocco); highly recommended for towering sceneries and Berber culture.
The Sahara (south Morocco); I would recommend the Merzouga area for splendid sand seas and traditional dance/music.
You don't say where you are entering/leaving Morocco but I will assume, for the moment, Casablanca to allow us to get the ball rolling.
Here is a rough draft of a possible itinerary for you to consider:-
Day 1 Arrive into Casablanca
Day 2 Casablanca in the morning; afternoon to Chefchaouen
Day 3 Chefchaouen in morning; to Fes via Meknes and Volubilis
Day 4 Fes
Day 5 Fes to Merzouga (the Sahara, at Erg Chebbi sand sea); overnight in deluxe Bedouin tent
Day 6 Merzouga - Todra Gorge - Valley of a Thousand Kasbahs and Ouarzazate
Day 7 Ouarzazate, Ait Benhaddou Kasbah and Marrakech
Day 8 In Marrakech (Cooking Class possible here; Quad Biking too)
Day 9 Depending on flight time (best if it is afternoon/early evening), transfer to Casablanca Airport for check-in.
How does that sound? I very much hope that this appeals. But, of course, it can be tweaked and adjusted; this is just an initial proposition for you. Is there any chance that you could add an extra day or two?
Of course, if you plan to arrive into/depart from different places, just let me know and I can adjust your routing.
I look forward to learning your thoughts on the above and how, hopefully, you would like to advance you tour planning with Anzal Tours.
Once we have the framework for you ideal tour's itinerary then I can prepare a bespoke and much more informative Trip Plan, describing each day's features, sceneries and experiences.
Is it 4* or 5* accommodations that you would like?
Many thanks for your inquiry, it is very much appreciated. I hope we can work together to create a very special and memorable tour for you.
Kind regards, Larbi
Sounds good! We would like to stay in min. 1 luxury riad though :) also we were hoping to do quad biking in the desert rather than Marrakech, and we would also like to do stargazing and sand boarding whilst in the desert :)
Also approx. how large will our group be? Or will this be a private tour?
It is very nice to hear back from you, many thanks.
Of course, we can arrange quad biking and sand boarding for you when you are in the desert. What’s more, we can even throw in stargazing for free - just look up, it can be an awesome sight!
Anzal Tours specialises in private, bespoke tours. You will have your own transport and driver (in a Toyota Lancruiser or similar); the drivers we use are very helpful in practical and logistical matters as well as being able to tell you things as you travel between places, just ask lots of questions! Such an arrangement is great as it allows you to be “flexible on the day” (within reason!), stopping, lingering and moving on as and when you wish. Our travelers like this a lot.
I will now calculate a cost for the tour as we have it at the moment and base it on some good quality 3* and with some 4* too (including luxury tent in the desert).
If you like the price and would like to proceed further then I can prepare a Trip Plan that contains much more information, including itemised inclusions and exclusions.
Thank you very much for keeping with Anzal Tours in this way.
Kind regards, Larbi
