Morocco - Apr 14 - Apr 23, 2019

I must say we had a wonderful trip. Yassine made sure that we were scheduled to do and see everything that we wanted to. All our guides were great. Well-informed with good English. Particularly good was Hakim, our guide in Fez. Knowledgeable, with a great sense of humor. He was helpful in finding quality places to shop, but allowed us to be in charge of what we were interested in looking for. Our driver, Nabil, was always cheerful and helpful. Having a driver really helped us to visit the maximum number of places, with the minimum amount of stress. We also had a good balance of leisure time to educational time. If you are considering a trip to Morocco, don't miss out on camping with the Bedouins, and the camel ride into camp. The scenery is amazing. Your friends will all be jealous. I have only 1 suggestion: it seems that all of the riads that we stayed in put us on the 3rd floor. I'm not sure why. The problem is that I have knee issues. They are not TOO bad, but the steps in Morocco seem to be higher than the steps elsewhere. The first riad in Fez, I had to climb the steps on my hands and knees. (not too dignified) Luckily, they moved us for the second night. So I suggest asking your clients about knee issues, and booking rooms accordingly. BTW, every riad we stayed at was photograph worthy. Good job!!!! Eileen & Wayne & Eileen

Hello Wayne & Eileen

Thank you for your review! It’s detailed reviews like yours that help us celebrate our wins and continue to improve where needed. I’m so happy to hear that you enjoyed your trip, and that having a driver made you’re your time in Morocco relaxing. That is one of the biggest advantages of having a private driver, and we are very lucky to have such a great driver as Nabil. That is so good to hear that you enjoyed your time in the Sahara Desert! Also, thank you for your feedback on Hakim. I am happy to hear that he guided you in the medina but did not take control of your shopping experience.

I must apologize about the riads. I am curious as to why you were scheduled on the top floor of every one of them. I will follow up to see how this happened. I am however happy that Dar Roumana was able to accommodate.

Again, I appreciate your thoughtful words and feedback. If you are ever in the market to travel to Morocco again, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I would be more than thrilled to plan your next trip with you again. Take care.

Warm Regards,
Yassine
