“Every bit as EXOTIC as Expected!”

Our 10 day trip through Morocco supported by ExperienceIt! Tours was every bit as exotic as expected. Our drive Youseff was excellent and made us feel at home with a genuine love of classic American pop music which he played in our Mercedes van. On the spot changes to the itinerary were quickly accommodated and our exploration of Volubilis was enhanced by an excellent, eager guide. I travel more for the ancient history than culture so this was taken into account. Our guide Mohamed at Fes was an English professor and spoke quite clearly, important to the over 60 demographic that have trouble hearing. This guide shepherded the Clintons, Hillary & Chelsea and Yo Yo Ma among other seasoned travellers around Fes and he was one super guide who could answer any and all questions. Riad Jauhorra was an excellent introduction to true Moroccan ambiance.

 A big plus for Experience It! Tours is that the traveller is made to think substituting their personal choice for hotel/riad is no problem and I must say a trip highlight for me was our choice of Riad Kniza in Marrekech. I spoke with the owner Mohamed about stepping from the miazma of the market into the heavenly world of the Riad and he said that was the “Magic of Marrekech.” He has pictures of him with his pals Kurt Russell, Alan Sheppard, Ronald Reagan and David Rockefeller next to the private pool! Vicki hit a high with the night in the desert with the Berbers. With no ambient light we saw the Milky Way and 3 comets. Our final excursion to Essouria was perfect after the size of Fes & Marrekech. Essouria is on the Atlantic, is very small – you can’t get lost and our hotel was overlooking the ocean. If you want to see Morocco efficiently with great value I strongly recommend ExperienceIt! Tours.
