We had a great trip! Our driver, Younes, really made the trip for us. He was knowledgable and friendly and very professional. He took us to some great restaurants, a kasbah that people still live in and a great place to buy carpets. We were travelling with our adult children. Our son and Younes struck up a very nice friendship. He was reliable, a great driver and I always felt safe with him.
I think, in retrospect, that we tried to cover too much territory in the time we had. As much as I enjoyed seeing the Sahara, it was a very long drive and it took up a lot of our time. If I did it over again, I think I would focus either on the area around Marrakech or in the north.
For us, when travelling to a country with such a different culture, we need some down time. Given the distances we were travelling there was little time for this. Also, in places like Fes and particularly Erfoud, there were very limited (if any) places to go out and just have a good walk in the evenings.
Thanks for all the arrangements. As I say, it was a wonderful trip and we will have great memories of it for a very long time.
All the best,
