Unforgettable trip to Morocco
Sep 8 - Sep 17, 2023
This 10 day trip was very well organized and covered areas of great natural splendour and places of historical importance. The accommodations were mostly in traditional riads that were beautiful and offered great services.
However, the most important factor in making our trip unforgettable was having had Karim as our guide/driver.
Karim is very positive and respectful and was always sure to respond to our needs making us feel welcome and safe.
Karim’s deep and personal knowledge of the sites and cultural aspects that make Morocco so unique contributed to our learning and enjoyment. There were innumerable highlights, one of the most memorable was our visit to a nomad family in their dwelling in the Atlas mountains. This interaction gave us a deep understanding of this centuries old way of life.
Our time in Morocco was marred by the occurrence of a strong earthquake that left much death and destruction. Karim kept us informed, answered all our questions and was very supportive and reassuring.
Karim’s driving skills are superb, be it on the highway, the cities, the desert or the mountain roads the rides felt safe and as confortable as possible.
We leave Morocco with great admiration for its varied and spectacular natural beauty, the uniqueness of its ancient and modern cities but mostly for the friendliness and resilience of its people, Karim being one great ambassador. We thank him and the team for making this trip so unforgettable.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff Very comfortable room Varied and tasty breakfast service The roof top garden is very relaxing
Arriving to our desert camp on the back of a dromedary, what a unique experience! The camp had all of the comforts that one expects in cities but in this unique natural setting. We became aware that there is a great effort to offer these comforts with very little environmental footprint, which is so important. That day there was a sand storm, however, we were safe and protected. The food was tasty and the service impecable. At the end of dinner the staff put on a fantastic evening concert with traditional music, what a treat! Sunrise in the desert among the sand dunes is an experience to be remembered.
