This was our first trip for my wife and I to Morocco, and it was amazing. Our driver Faisal was fantastic! He was pleasant throughout despite the long drives, was able to communicate easily in English, had a great sense of humor, and good knowledge base throughout the journey. Faisal even helped us out with some bargaining for purchases! We started in Marrakech, then travelled to Eit Ben Haddou, the Merzouga desert, Fes, Chefchauen, Rabat, and home via Casablanca. Highlights of the trip included knowledgable guides in Marrakech, Fes and Rabat for the souks and landmarks; a most memorable Tagine cooking class in Marrakech; an amazing 4-hour sunset camel ride in the Sahara desert, pottery making and tile tour in Fes; and so much moreā€¦. The accommodations in Riads, as well as in a tent in Merzouga were quite nice overall. Will definitely be using KimKim in the future!

Quiet and peaceful, clean, great buffet dinner

Tiziri Luxury Camp

Given the fact that it is in the middle of the Sahara desert, this was a wonderful way to spend two nights. Nightly local musicians, great food.
