A Perfect Week in Morocco - Dec 14 - Dec 21, 2019
Just returned from my first visit to Morocco with friends and family. From planning and booking to providing service on the ground during our trip, Megan was prompt, flexible, and creative. She worked with me to build a trip plan for us that fit our needs perfectly, and our tour guide Omar made sure the plan was executed flawlessly. Omar was a consummate professional from our first meeting at the airport. He shared with us his knowledge of the history and culture of Morocco and was resourceful when the unexpected happened, which we learned is often the case here. A few highlights of our trip were hiking in the Ourika Valley followed by lunch with a local Berber family; a cooking class in Marrakech, where we prepared (and ate!) our own tagine and Moroccan salads; getting a scrub and massage at a traditional hammam; touring a winery outside of Essaouira and tasting fine Moroccan wines; touring the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca; and strolling the medinas in each city we visited. With Omar as our guide, all of our needs for Moroccan coffee, mint tea, and stopping for impromptu photo ops with goats in trees were happily accommodated. He even taught me some basic Darija so I could communicate with my daughter's host family in Rabat.
