We enjoyed a wonderful 10 day tour of Morocco in May with driver Ryad Mekouki. It was a marvelous trip, exceeding our expectations in large part due to our driver, Ryad.
Ryad is intelligent, educated, and with an unexpectedly broad English understanding that allowed us to have insightful and stimulating conversations during our long days of driving and sight seeing. We were able to learn much about the history, customs, and life or Morocco from him. He was always prompt, polite, helpful and sensitive and cooperative relative to our special needs and requests. I was impressed by his ethics, openness and honesty which made us feel safe and with an advocate during the tour. The driving conditions in Morocco are challenging at times, yet, I always felt safe with his driving and we covered the most ground possible each day, including our many stops to view sights and birds. We thoroughly enjoyed out time with him with lots of laughs and memories.
We were, also, impressed by our city guide, Abdul, in Rissani. He was outstanding in every way and such a pleasant, open, charming person. Abdul provided meaningful information about the city history and provided opportunities to see and meet typical residents of the city besides assisting us with interactions in a milieu that was foreign to us.
The lodgings were outstanding. We especially enjoyed the Dar Sultan in Tangier as it was like staying in a Moroccan museum with so many beautiful artifacts, books and delicious and abundant food provided by gracious hosts. Both Xaluca Dades and Kasbah Xaluca hotels were beautiful and it was a treat to experience their ethnic decor and luxury.
We have highly recommended your tour company and especially Ryad to fellow travelers and friends.
Thank you for a wonderful experience!!!!
