I was meaning to write you a short note about our experience in Morocco. But it’s taken me until today to get sorted out with work and home stuff. The entire tour was extremely well organized. The camel trek and night at the Sahara was the highlight of our trip and far exceeded our expectations. Our favorite city was Fez and we enjoyed getting lost in the labyrinth of the Fez medina.
Rostom, our driver, was an excellent host and driver throughout our stay with him from Casablanca airport back to Casablanca. He was always thoughtful and made our trip an amazing experience. His English was excellent; he drove safely and surely through difficult mountain passes and through long roads through the desert; and he always conducted himself with professionalism and integrity; and he was a genuine pleasure to be with. He also did an incredible job catering to all our requests (especially Meknes and Volubilis) and went out of his way to make sure that we would experience the authentic side of Morocco. He was very courteous, on time and was always thinking of making sure that our daily schedule allowed for maximum sight-seeing but still have time for relaxation. He was very knowledgeable about the country and its culture, and was great about sharing such knowledge. My sister and I were very lucky to have him as our driver.
He also found us good local guides who had in-depth knowledge of the cities that we were visiting. We’d like to make special mention of the local guide for Volubilis – he was very knowledgeable and he shared such knowledge in a fun and enjoyable manner.
Our second driver, Lashen, who met drove us during our one-day/night layover before our flight back to the U.S. was also very courteous and professional, and was pleasant company to be with.
Overall, we had a fantastic experience. Certainly, we would recommend Experience It! to travelers who do not want a typical big bus tour and who do not want to travel completely independently. Thank you again for arranging our tour.
