A moroccan desert adventure - 4 days, Morocco - Jun 9 - Jun 14, 2018

Traveler: Alvin K. - Local specialist: Larbi Anzal

We spent 5 days and 4 nights in Morocco and it was great. One of the highlights of our trip was spending the night in the Sahara desert where we were able to watch the stars by the campfire while also enjoying some local music.

Our trip was spent mostly on the road however which at some points of the trip can feel quite boring. However it is understandable due to the size of the country and the distances we had to travel between each place. Nevertheless, the scenery during the drives were beautiful ranging from rocky mountains, desserts, and valleys. The cities we visited were also very beautiful we visited Ourzazate, Marrakech, and Boulmane Dades.

Our driver was very helpful and very informartive and we enjoyed the trip very much. The accommodation provided by Larbi was of very good quality. We opted for the 3* option and the places we stayed in were very clean and provide very good service.

Some negatives/feedback from our trip:
- we did not get information on the time that our driver would pick us up on the first and last day. It would be more efficient for us and for the tour to provide us this info as we had to ask the hotel manager to phone Larbi a couple of times.
- when we were dropped of in Marrakech by our driver we had to walk to the riad we were staying and our driver agreed with a guy with a cart to take our baggage for 50 dirham. When we arrived I was forced to pay 150 dirham by him.

Despite some minor stuff we enjoyed our trip very much and would recommend using Larbi's services if you are going to visit Morocco.

I am delighted to read your very positive and encouraging Review; many thanks for taking the time to write it and so fully too. I am very pleased to know that you had a great trip and that you fully appreciated the magnificent sceneries and experiences of Morocco (as well as the Anzal Tours service provision!). It is a huge country - you must come back and see more! We have very good drivers and it's great to hear that you appreciated his services too; they do a demanding job and are a very important element of our tours; their input is significant to a tour's overall success. Good to get your "light negatives'' too, thanks; noted and action will be taken for the future. It is a bit tricky to control the luggage carriers, however; they are good and needed for what they do but they have tough lives so any chance to squeeze a little more dirhams can be the case sometimes, sorry about that. Many thanks for your personal recommendation too; I appreciate that very much. We genuinely strive in Anzal Tours to meet and exceed our travelers' expectations. Larbi.
