First of all, I wanted to say THANK YOU! We had an amazing time. It was quite evident that great care had was put into creating our itinerary and we greatly appreciate it. The hotels were lovely, especially the riads in Marrakech and Fez. The guides we met along the way were very informative and clearly love their country very much. I think I speak for both Rabia and myself that we left Morocco with a profound respect for its people and culture and can’t wait to go back.
Most of all I also wanted to write to share about our incredible driver Hatim. As you probably know, our designated driver Younez was unable to join us for most of the trip because his father fell ill. Truth be told, Rabia and I both feel we lucked out. Hatim went above and beyond at every corner and made sure that our time in Morocco was the best it could be. From always having water in the van, buying us dates to try, having an incredible taste in music, taking us to great local restaurants, and generally being the biggest and staunchest advocate for his country, Hatim is a jewel. It was clear that he loves what he does, he is a wealth of information about Morocco, it’s people, and culture, and he is obviously well known and respected by people all over the country. I cannot speak highly enough of just how impressed we were with Hatim, his affable nature, and his attention to detail. We are confident we would not have had the same trip without him!
Accommodations were fantastic! They were quick to cater to our dietary restrictions, the food was AMAZING, and the rooms were lovely and spacious. Everywhere we went made us feel welcomed and comfortable. The Riad Myra and Riad Le Clos Des Arts were particularly impressive. Their staff were phenomenal, the riads are simply gorgeous, and both are incredibly well located within their respective medinas.
All in all, we both consider our trip to Morocco a resounding success and look forward to going back in the future. Thank you again for everything!
