A Morrocan Getaway - Jan 31 - Feb 5, 2019
Where do we begin?!
From the moment we were greeted by Mohammed, our driver, at the airport, our driver/guide throughout the trip made us feel extremely comfortable from the start. Mohammed was on-time and ready to go as we left the airport and took us to our transportation which was as described by our local specialist Radia - a spacious and modern Mercedes van. The vehicle was fully supplied with fresh snacks, cold water and charging ports for our phones. The wifi was extremely helpful and worked throughout our entire trip! Mohammed made sure our ride to the hotel was smooth and along the way began talking to us about Morocco and its rich history, culture and surrounding areas. For the entire trip, Mohammed was ready and always EARLY for all of our trips. We visited 4 cities - Marrakech, Casablanca, Chefchaouen, Tangier. Mohammed was accommodating throughout the entire trip.
All the accommodations that were selected and booked met or exceeded our expectations and we were delighted to stay in locations that were central to where we wanted to be, yet distant enough from the hustle and bustle of the cities. We were impressed by the seamless check-in/check-out processes at each stay, the friendly hotel staff and their willingness to accommodate all requests. At the local Riad's we enjoyed amazing teas and Moroccan desserts. All the rooms selected met our needs and was spacious and clean.
Our various tour guides were all amazing. Ahmed, in the city of Marrakesh, was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and eager to share his knowledge and history of Morocco and its amazing historical sites. Lotfi, our tour guide in Chefchaouen, was an amazing person, super friendly, personable and did an amazing job of photographing our time in the 'Blue City'. Lotfi was accommodating to all of our requests, was extremely well known throughout the city and clearly had a passion for showing us all that the Blue City has to offer. We spent about 5 hours with him and he did a great job.
The food in Morocco is truly amazing. All the selections made by Radia that were included in the package were well selected and did not disappoint. The selections for the lunch and/or dinners were perfect for each occasion. Both Rick's Café & Rhizlane were truly amazing for us. While we enjoyed all of the locations, these two stood out the most for it's quality of food and locations. We truly couldn't have picked better places to eat and enjoy local Moroccan cuisine.
Overall, we highly recommend utilizing KimKim for this or any other trip. We can't wait to not only come back to Morocco but also using KimKim for other future adventures. It was our first time using the site and while hesitant at first, we truly do not regret using the service and only wish now we could have found it sooner to have booked our other vacations in the past! This was truly an unforgettable experience as we went to celebrate my birthday! We truly encourage anyone to consider KimKim for taking care of it all and just sit back and relax and know that your interests and needs will be fully taken care of and far exceed your expectations on your trip!
