Trip to Morocco - Oct 5 - Oct 10, 2019
We had an amazing trip, thanks largely to Moroccan Immersion Tours and Adventures and to the help of Sharon (who helped us plan our 6 day itinerary) and to Abdou, who was our gracious, informed, and unfailingly cheerful guide. We contacted KimKim only about 4 weeks before our trip and were quickly connected with Moroccan Immersion/Sharon. Sharon was extremely helpful -- and patient! -- in recommending options for our 6 day trip, jumping on the phone with me at least a few times for me to ask (many) questions, and to flexing on timing/price when we needed to reduce our total costs. The tour itself was wonderful -- a mix of 'typical' experiences (e.g., walks around the souks in Marrakech) coupled with unique and differentiated experiences that Moroccan Immersion helped arrange (e.g., a visit to a women's rug making cooperative followed by lunch with the 3 rug weavers; spending a night in a luxury desert camp coupled with a pre-dawn hike up the mountain to see the sunrise). Abdou was a real pleasure to have as a guide -- his love for and knowledge of his country and his heritage is impressive, and really came across in the tour. Abdou also did a great job of connecting us to local guides (e.g., in Marrakech, in Taroudant), who were equally knowledgeable and friendly. In all, I would highly, highly recommend Moroccan Immersion if you are interested in planning a trip to this remarkable country.
