We had the most wonderful time in Morocco! - Apr 24 - May 3, 2022

Traveler: Ali E. - Local specialist: Yassine Echcherki

This was our first time traveling since the pandemic started. We reached out to KimKim and very shortly after heard from Yassine from Morocco Off The Beaten Track, who immediately began with assisting us in planning our trip. We appreciate his prompt responses and helpful advice; it was invaluable! Yassine helped plan our overall trip itinerary, daily activities, accommodation and provided other recommendations also.

This was our first time traveling since the pandemic started. We reached out to KimKim and very shortly after heard from Yassine from Morocco Off The Beaten Track, who immediately began with assisting us in planning our trip. We appreciate his prompt responses and helpful advice; it was invaluable! Yassine helped plan our overall trip itinerary, daily activities, accommodation and provided other recommendations also. He was very professional, courteous and insightful. He made it easy for us to change sections of itinerary as we needed and understood what sort of trip we were looking for. Once we had booked everything he provided us with detailed itinerary of our upcoming trip, including our travel guide, accommodations, activities, and local attractions and food spots based on the cities we were in. He also ensured we understood and met with the travel requirements for entry into Morocco.

Once we landed in Morocco, everything was handled by our local guide, Amine. In my wife and I's opinion, Amine truly made our trip what it was. He was exceptionally helpful, professional, friendly throughout our entire time. He made us feel safe as we toured Morocco and continually provided insight into its peoples, places and customs. By the end of the trip he truly became our friend and we strongly recommend his services to anyone looking to tour Morocco.

Our trip involved stays in Casablanca, Fes, Merzouga (desert night camping), Ouarzazate and Marrakech. Along the way between cities Amine showed us several other small towns, historical sites and beautiful scenery. Our accommodations met our expectations and we are grateful to Yassine for arranging it all. The experience staying at Riad Fes in the city of Fes was certainly one of our most enjoyable and relaxing moments. We highly recommend future travellers to consider staying at local riads when visiting Morocco.

For Fes and Marrakech, we had a local tour guide (arranged by Yassine) who gave us an in-depth tour of the old cities of each respective place. These guides were knowledgable, friendly and very accommodating. This was an amazing experience overall!

Yassine, at our request, also arranged for a Moroccan hammam massage experience as well as a hot air balloon tour over the city of Marrakech. Both these experiences very terrific and we would highly recommend them to future travellers.

Overall, we had an amazing vacation experience in Morocco. It's unique cities, beautiful scenery, warm and hospitable people are something that should be enjoyed by everyone. We owe our thanks to Yassine for organizing and arranging everything for us as it allowed us to be very hands off during the trip and just enjoy things as they come. Once again, we also cannot thank Amine enough for all his help throughout the trip. We truly feel our visit would not have been the same if we did not have Amine as our guide. We highly highly recommend his services and consider him as our friend now. For those travellers thinking about a visit to Morocco, I would strongly recommend they reach out to Yassine and request Amine as their guide!

An amazing and eye-opening experience! Our guide, Hassan through Morocco Off The Beaten Track, was exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly, and we would highly recommend his services. We visited historic madrassas in the old city, a local leather tannery, ceramic shops, unique carpet and antique showrooms. We felt safe throughout the tour and local residents were very friendly and accommodating. This tour is a must for anyone visiting Fes!
