We had a fabulous time. All plans went like clockwork from start to finish…so no stress! Our driver, Ahmed Hadji was wonderful…an excellent driver for starters! We always felt safe with him maneuvering in the sometimes chaotic traffic. He was punctual, gave us clear instructions regarding the days’ activities and was always pleasant and willing to adjust to our wishes. We enjoyed his sense of humor and his knowledge of Morocco. All in all, we can’t say enough good things about him!
We were very impressed with your company’s service! You were responsive to all our requests and provided us with very useful and interesting pre trip information. We appreciated Ruth’s attention to all the administrative details. All of this made us very comfortable as we anticipated our trip! Our itinerary met all of our expectations in that it provided us the opportunity to experience many aspects of Morocco.
Our accommodations were excellent. The hotel in Casablanca was just right. We really liked the riads in Fez and Marrakesh which were clean and beautiful with outstanding service. They gave a real sense of Morocco. We enjoyed the friendly staff particularly in Fez. The L’ma Lodge in Skoura was a wonderful surprise…getting there felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. It has a lovely and interesting layout. The owner, Veronica, was delightful and the food was great. We would have enjoyed another day there. The only place that was somewhat disappointing was the Palais Du Desert hotel outside of Erfoud. The staff provided great service and the rooms were nice, but it had a hollow feel as we were the only guests in this resort. The dinner was just ok…Because it wasn’t in the town, we had no opportunity to explore.
We really enjoyed our desert experience…it was a real highlight!! All of the young men who served us from the landrover driver, to the camel ride leader to the “keepers of the tent” were great. They were pleasant and accommodating and so willing to share about themselves and their country. The beauty of the sand dunes, the sunset and sunrise were memorable!
Highlights?? There were many! The Hassan II mosque, the Roman ruins in Volubilus ( in the rain and mist), the medina tours, the desert, the beautiful tile work in many of the mosques and palaces, the wonderful colors of spices and textiles. The dinner in Fez at the family restaurant of Fouad and Karima (Dar Hatim) . We very much enjoyed the Yves St. Laurent museum and the gardens in Marrakesh…should be part of the standard tour.
Thank you so much…we have already recommended you to several friends!!
Linda and John.
