My husband and I had a spectacular time on the Honeymoon Tour. First, our driver, Hamid, was incredible. He is extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and kind, and really made the trip so much better. We learned a lot about Berber culture and the desert towns from him as well as all the other cities on our itinerary. He knew the best ways to adjust the schedule when things came up (like the mosque in Casablanca being closed for prayers).

Second, this itinerary has it all: historical sites, cultural performances, natural beauty.
Our accomodations were beautiful. The Wanderlust team was very responsive when issues came up, as with the sandboarding. We never felt like we were on our own, which was a relief to us since we didn't speak the language(s).

Our visit to Fes was great, as was our tour guide. We learned so much about the history and handicraft of Morocco. I think I enjoyed Fes more than Marrakech. I did not know a person could be allergic to the Sahara until we got there. So much dust. But the dunes are beautiful, the camp we stayed at was lovely, and the guides were so friendly. We got lucky to have one clear night where we could see all the stars. It was amazing to visit the market, tour the oasis, and eat Berber pizza. May is very hot in the desert, so I'm glad we went before summer.

There was so much to this trip, and I'm sure I'm forgetting some things. The Roman ruins were neat. We went on a hike with a fun guide near Gorges Dades, and that was beautiful. We saw Ait Ben Haddou, which is still impressive despite the earthquake damage. We toured the Majorelle Gardens. We saw exciting new construction neighborhoods and gorgeous old historical neighborhoods. We drank strong coffee and refreshing mint tea. We managed to eat our way through many delicious dishes: tagine, tanjia, pastilla, tride.

We're thankful to this tour and our wonderful guides for making sure we had a great time in Morocco.

Hi Victoria,

I'm so glad you enjoyed your time! And we love hearing wonderful things about our guides and drivers - I'm so glad Hamid helped to make your trip incredible. I hadn't encountered anyone who suffered allergies from the desert, I didn't know that either, so that's good to know as a warning for others.

Thank you again for entrusting such a special trip to us!
