We had a wonderful trip with Morocco Immersion Tours & Adventures! When booking, Sharon was quick to respond to all of our questions and help us create the perfect itinerary for our week in Morocco.

From start to finish, everything was perfectly planned and we got to do and see everything we set out to.

We had a wonderful trip with Morocco Immersion Tours & Adventures! When booking, Sharon was quick to respond to all of our questions and help us create the perfect itinerary for our week in Morocco.

From start to finish, everything was perfectly planned and we got to do and see everything we set out to. The local guides in each area (Marrakech, Tinghir, and Kasbah Tamnougalt) were all very knowledgeable, happy to answer questions and patient with picture taking. At each Riad (Riad Nesma in Marrakech, Chez Ichou, and Kasbah Itrane Tamnougalt) and the desert camp we were provided with delicious food and attentive service. If you decide to do a desert overnight at the wonderful Palais des Dunes Luxury Camp don’t miss out on leaving camp in the evening to do some star gazing - it can’t be beat! Additionally, on your way out of Ourzazate, visit Taman’Art Space, a unique artist’s collective founded by the incredibly talented local artist, Aissa Joud.

What made the trip special was how wonderful our driver, Mahmoud, was - you truly couldn’t ask for a better person to show you around such a beautiful country. From Marrakech to the Sahara and back, Mahmoud went above and beyond to make us feel welcome, introducing us to fantastic music (we are now gnawa fans for life), and teaching us so much about Moroccan and Amazigh culture. Mahmoud did an amazing job getting us from place to place safely, connecting us with local excursions and making sure my dietary restrictions were understood (i.e., celiac) when we stopped for meals. If you are lucky enough to visit Morocco, you will be twice as lucky if you have Mahmoud as your driver. Not only did we have a fantastic trip, we gained a wonderful friend as well!

It was a once in a lifetime trip that we will never forget and we can’t wait to come back!
