Traditional morocco, Morocco - Apr 26 - May 8, 2019

Traveler: Jay R. - Local specialist: Yassine Echcherki

Our dream of travelling to Morocco was made possible with the expert assistance of Yassine from Morocco Off the Beaten Track. From the very first email we sent to him, we felt confident that he would put together an itinerary that was exactly what we were wanting- a trip that included culture, arts, food & music.
Our 13 day tour included, Essaouira, Marrakesh, Fes, Chefchaouen & concluded in Tangier.
Our driver Ismail was excellent. We cannot speak highly enough of him. He was a prompt, highly skilled & calm driver. He met us with a smile every morning & was a wonderful resource for us to learn more about Moroccan culture and music, both tradional and current. He was good company for the many hours we spent on the road. His knowledge of local traditional events, enabled us to attend events that are now fond memories of a wonderful, rich & beautiful country.
Throughout our trip we stayed in amazing Riads and had guides that were very well educated thanks to the detailed planning of Yassine & Hassan.
Throughout our trip, Yassine & Hassan were contactable if we needed. We were also given the use of a mobile phone to contact our driver at any time.
A huge thankyou to all who helped plan and make possible  our trip of a life time.
Jay & Andy
