Essential Morocco - Dec 21 - Jan 1, 2020

Traveler: jaya c. - Local specialist: Megan Lower

Had a great time @ Morocco. We had our main tour guide/Chauffeur Yassine driving us all round. He was very professional, friendly and took us to all hidden treasures of Morocco. Recommended places to eat, helped us sample of some the local fruits, cheese, etc. He speaks multiple languages and is very knowledgeable of the local culture. We landed at Casablanca and from there went to Tangier, Chefchaouen, Fes, Merzouga, Boumalne Dades and finally to Marrakesh. Our local tour guides were very informative, and we met a few wonderful local guides during our stay at Sahara-Hmad in particular. We explored the Saharan sands cape by Camel and buggy driving. We met Hassan- the camel guy from a nomadic village who is learning Portuguese and Spanish through Google. I noticed that he was very tender and affectionate with his camels, and told us about his dog 'Subbotho' and taught us a few phrases in Berber. We stayed at the 'Dune house' overlooking the golden peaks of Sahara while we were ate Merzouga. Emily Owen was our host and we absolutely fell in love with the space. She created a unique experience for us and cooked us a delicious meal. I can't wait to go back here again. I loved Fez Medina's raw charm appealing while others could find it in a state of perpetual pandemonium and recoil in horror. I particularly enjoyed Kamal's perspective on the cultural lineage and history when we visited the Fez Medina. Finally, I must thank Megan - our tour specialist for putting together an itinerary that all of us could enjoy and available at all times to address our concerns, I would recommend this trip to anyone planning a visit to Morocco. It's a family friendly travel destination.
