Moroccan Cities & the Coast - 9 Days - Nov 21 - Nov 30, 2018
Our driver, Rachid, was excellent in every way, very helpful in organizing porters, restaurant reservations and a good guide in Chefchaouen . Moncef, our guide in Rabat, was excellent and quite a character. Sayeed in Fes was the best guide we had: he spoke excellent English as he had lived in the US and had the best perspective on the good and bad sides of life in Morocco. Our guide in Marrakech, Mohammed, was very personable but not very informative. He showed us Le Jardin Majorelle, Le Palais de la Bahia and several shops of quite high quality, but we left feeling there was much more to see, which was not the case in Fes or Rabat. Our favorite places were Chefchaouen, Chellah Necropolis (especially the storks), our two Riads in Fes (Le Calife) and Marrakech (Kaiss), Volubilis and Lixus. The Ouzud waterfalls and the Barbary Macaques there were also memorable.
