Our recent trip to Morocco was amazing! - Oct 4 - Oct 14, 2019

Traveler: Jennifer K. - Local specialist: Megan Lower

Our recent trip to Morocco was amazing! From the very first steps in planning, Meghan from Wanderlust was extremely helpful and quick to respond to my many inquiries. She put together a trip that checked every box we requested. And we had local support from Belghit as soon as we landed in Casablanca.
The vast knowledge and good humour of our driver, Brahim made the trip even more enjoyable. It’s impossible to really understand a new culture in 11 days but spending so much time with Brahim, left us much better informed about the history and culture of Morocco than any guidebook could. He was certainly not just a “driver”, but a well informed, personable ambassador for the country. He so kindly put up with all my questions! There just aren’t enough positive adjectives I can use to describe him.
Kamal, our guide in Fes was outstanding! I have never learned so much in one day as I did when we were with him. He wasn’t just imparting facts; everything had a story, a philosophy. He was brilliant and because of him, I will be doing my own reading.
Every place we stayed was absolutely lovely, staff were wonderful and helpful.
Our highlights were Chefchaouen, Fes, Volubilis, the Atlas Mountains and of course, the desert. If time had permitted, I would have stayed one more night in the Merzouga area. Next time!
My thanks to all who made this trip so memorable!
