Fabulous Trip to Morocco! - May 5 - May 14, 2022

Traveler: Susan L. - Local specialist: Hakim ALIBOUCHE

The services provided by Hakim were very professional in all interactions we had with him. We always felt that he was attentive to our requests and he designed our trip just as we requested. We were pleased with the selection of hotels and the guides provided for our trip. We enjoyed the guides in each city we visited (each guide was a 10!) but we were most pleased to have a female guide in Mekenes.

Our driver, Mohammad was fabulous. He was attentive to our needs and was prompt and courteous. We especially appreciated that he spoke English--he was a great source of information and we enjoyed hearing about life in Morocco from a local.
I would highly recommend Kimkim, Hakim and his team to anyone wanting to visit Morocco. We were delighted by the country and hope to return sometime.

This was a lovely riad and the service there was very good. We enjoyed the location and the ease of coming and going from the riad. The meals we had at this riad were among the best we had on our entire trip. The staff was courteous and attentive to our needs.

For the selected accommodations, it's great that your stays were just something unique and I'm happy to hear you had a comfortable stay at each property trying the local food and experiencing the authenticity of the Moroccan Riads.
In the end, all I would say is that the country still has a lot to offer! This was your first trip to Morocco but, it shouldn't be the last one as they're a lot of beautiful cities and amazing towns/villages to enjoy! I will be very happy to work with you again in the future and offer such an unforgettable and unique experience!
Greeting to the beautiful family!
