Nov 13 - Nov 25, 2023
This is first time we traveled with a driver and used guides. We typically travel alone and are very spontaneous . The idea of traveling with a schedule was a bit unsettling, but it ended up working great.
We loved Kimkims digital process for putting together an itinerary. It enabled us to individualize our tour. We made special requests and they were able to accommodate them. We also thought the ongoing service /acccess once we arrived in Morocco from Said was excellent. The Riads they chose were excellent; the level of service the Riads offered was amazing( not to mention beautiful).
The highlight of Kimkims role was their connection with Original travels in Morocco and then original travels driver Tayeb.
Tayeb was not only a great driver(very safe) , but he was a delightful human being with a vast knowledge of many things, which made our driving time a lot of fun. He spoke English beautifully, provided us with historical background on the areas we were driving through, was willing to be flexible for our requests and was willing to have in-depth cultural conversations if we initiated them. All of this added so much to our trip. Much to my surprise and pleasure, the time with Tayeb became a thoughtful and insightful cultural exchange . One we will cherish for years to come.
This Riad was not only beautiful, but provided some of the best food we ate in Morocco ( traditional Moroccan cuisine) and had very comfortable beds.
Loved this gorgeous Riad in the heart of Fes. Staff were excellent, the Riad was stunning, roof top deck has gorgeous view of Fes. Staff served us a delicious dinner on the deck ! Good was excellent
Beautiful Dar in small village. The staff was excellent, the food was like dining in 5 star restaurant. The restaurant used traditional Moroccan foods, but then put skittle twist in them. Fusion at its best! I wish this restaurant was closer to me.family owned and run
Wonderful roof deck, beautiful, meals were fine, but not great. Family run and owned
This was by far our favorite Riad ! The Riad itself was gorgeous, the location was perfect, the roof top deck with pool was so relaxing after a day in the Medina, but the staff was Superior! We have never felt so pampered by staff and accommodations. They arranged a Hammam ( in house) and we were able to visit their sister Riad to experience a jazz bar that made you feel like it was 1930. We also appreciated the music played (jazz) on the roof top terrace in our riad
Food was excellent, but we ate with two of the children. The mother was sick, the father came in at the end. The youngest son was delightful
our guide was very informative
Great day because Tyheb took us to special spots he knew we’d like
For some reason , we were not given this experience though I believe we paid for it. The guide told us that they haven’t been doing it since COVID. If that is accurate it should be removed from the options.
Great walk with Mohammad! He was delightful
