I do not typically write reviews but in this case I wanted to give this review due to the excellent attention and friendship we have established with Mohamed “Yassine “ Taiebine. Yassine was always prompt, thinking ahead of our needs and provided daily insight to his Moroccan culture. Yassine’s car was roomy for our group of four and he kept it impeccably clean.

I do not typically write reviews but in this case I wanted to give this review due to the excellent attention and friendship we have established with Mohamed “Yassine “ Taiebine. Yassine was always prompt, thinking ahead of our needs and provided daily insight to his Moroccan culture. Yassine’s car was roomy for our group of four and he kept it impeccably clean. He went over and above when there was a need to deviate from our plan and always without hesitation. Cannot imagine anyone better to take us around (4 older women) and felt safe the entire time especially with his driving abilities. He even took the time to teach us and “test” us on Arabic words in a fun way.

In addition to our friendship with Yassine we also had a wonderful guide, Hassin “Sassa” . His sense of humor made our experience with him in Marrakesh and Fes not only educational but fun ! Sassa’s historical knowledge was wonderful and he helped us understand the changes in the Moroccan culture over time. Together Yassine and Sassa made a great team!!

Activity Reviews
Overnight in the Sahara Desert
Morocco

The camel ride to our Sahara camp was the highlight of our trip. It was fun evening in the desert and very glad I was able to experience it .The tents were very comfortable and each with their own bathroom . Just a heads up the stray dogs in the middle of the desert are friendly and not there to harm you and bring a little battery operated fan rather than a jacket during the summer months.

Traditional Cooking Class
Morocco

We made the best tasting lemon and olive chicken tagine we had on our entire trip in our class. Looking forward to receiving the recipes so I can bring a bit of Morocco to my US home. The tea service was very informative and opened my eyes about the use of different herbs and spices to make great tea. Staff was great !
