What an amazing introduction to Morocco! We could not have been happier with our experience planning (and replanning due to Covid) this experience with Sharon. She was knowledgeable, patient and kind and became a friend during the process. When the trip finally happened, it was everything we had hoped for and then some.

What an amazing introduction to Morocco! We could not have been happier with our experience planning (and replanning due to Covid) this experience with Sharon. She was knowledgeable, patient and kind and became a friend during the process. When the trip finally happened, it was everything we had hoped for and then some. Yassine, our guide, was fantastic from the minute he met us at the airport. We got to see a bit of Casablanca before heading out to Rabat. From there it just kept getting better and better. The variety of trip, from the ethereal blue city of Chefchaouen, to the ancient Medina of Fez, to the GORGEOUS Sahara Desert, and the endless vibrant energy and colors of Marrakech….it’d be hard to pick a favorite part. Even the riads we stayed in were so far beyond our expectations….every single one. And even though Yassine was always full of interesting facts and insights, they also provided specialized local guides in some of the cities that guided us through back streets and ancient narrow passageways to tiny hidden local gems and old family shops we would never have found on our own. And we’re glad we did 2 weeks instead of only 1; there was SO much to see and do and it still felt like we were rushing. Two weeks allowed us to have a free day every now and then to just meander the streets on our own and get a better feel for the places. If you’re considering Morocco, Morocco Immersion is the perfect company to work with. Thank you, Sharon!!!!!

Hotel Reviews
Riad Maison Du Sud
Essaouira

Cutest of all the riads we’ve had! If you can handle stairs, it is magical! The room was more like an apartment, with the bed in a loft. Beautiful tile work and art and attention to detail everywhere. Centrally located in the old Medina and staff was very friendly. Absolutely LOVED this place!!

Oh Kris! Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We are beyond thrilled to hear that your long anticipated trip exceeded your expectations! I'm also super happy that Abdou and I got to meet you both while you were here in the Valley of Roses. And thanks again for the beautiful coffee mug (and for giving me first pick). It is almost too pretty to use!

At this point in my response, I normally say "keep in touch", but I know that we will! Be sure to tell us when your travels bring you to... read more

At this point in my response, I normally say "keep in touch", but I know that we will! Be sure to tell us when your travels bring you to the East Coast and if we aren't in Morocco we will make an effort to come meet you!

Thanks again for everything!
Take Care,
Sharon, Abdou, Yassine, and the rest of the Morocco Immersion family
