We have only praise for our tour arranged for our party of 3. It was to be 4 in our group, but at the last moment, one had to withdraw from the trip. We came across your group on the internet, & while sometimes this could be a hazard, as we didn’t have any recommendations, it worked out better than expected & good value for money.
After our initial night in Casablanca, we met by our guide, Rashid, who over the week went out of his way to ensure that this would be a fantastic experience in his country.
We had 3 nights in The Riad Myra in Fes, & it was one of the most stunning & delightfully beautiful accommodation that we have stayed in, over many years of touring the world!
The staff were uniquely friendly & helpful, the “food to die for” & as for the room, it was indescribably stunning. This Riad was by all reports a Harem many years ago, and on entering our room, all you had to do is breathe in & sense what may have gone on in days gone by. The 4 posted bed, the brightly coloured Arabic tiled walls, the high timbered ceiling, & the huge, thick heavily bolted doors that led onto the gallery overlooking the open court yard below made this place completely different to anything we’ve previously experienced. We dined in every night, took breakfast on the roof top terrace, & had a Haman in the steam room. Couldn’t recommend Riad Myra any higher, a real pleasure to be a guest in such an exquisite surrounding.
Our arrival at Riad Dar Chems in Marrakech, was a let down in comparison, but Jeff made hasty arrangements, & we were moved. At Dar Chems, the rooms were dirty, dim & the terrace appeared to be either a storage facility or a collection area for all the last few years’ furnishings. The roof top alcoves could have been exotic & a place to relax after a hard day in the Souk, but it hadn’t been cleaned or tidied in a very long time.
In summary, we would definitely return to Morocco, would love to see the Sahara, & The High Atlas, but only if we had the pleasure of Rashid & his fellow guides to show us around.
He & his brothers are a real asset to your organisation, & very proud citizens of Morocco
