Our driver, Abderahim, was most excellent and attentive to all our needs..very satisfied. Hakim, the tour operator was also very attentive with prompt replies to any questions. We had only one riad in Essaouira we were very unhappy with ( not too clean) and he refunded our night stay there. The guides were sharp and well versed in the history of thier respective towns..all locals.

Our driver, Abderahim, was most excellent and attentive to all our needs..very satisfied. Hakim, the tour operator was also very attentive with prompt replies to any questions. We had only one riad in Essaouira we were very unhappy with ( not too clean) and he refunded our night stay there. The guides were sharp and well versed in the history of thier respective towns..all locals.
A few minor suggestions. While we stayed 3 nights in Marrakesh, one day was spent hiking in Imlil region of Atlas mountains and driving back & forth to Marrakesh. While this hike was spectacular and well worth the visit, consider next time arranging an overnight in Imlil region instead of driving back to Marrakesh. My understanding is the drive to Essaouira the next day wouldn't be negatively impacted. Another consideration is the very long drive from Fes to Merzouga...could it be broken up? Understand that perhaps due to our time constraints that was not possible.
Overall thoroughly enjoyed Morocco , it's rich culture and history and wonderful people. Will definitely recommend KimKim and the destination to friends and family.

Staff was not the issue
Cleanliness & Comfort
As stated, not anywhere near the caliber of other riads...very disappointed. No one was available to pick up our luggage either, our driver had to schlep both our heavy baggage from outside medina. He never complained but this riad knew we were coming and made no arrangements with a porter.
