My husband and I just returned from an outstanding Fabulous Fortnight Tour in Morocco! From start to finish, we could not have asked for a better vacation! We loved the history and culture, the sights and colors of the medina, the food and tradition, our overnight stay in the desert…and our Riad stays most certainly added an authenticity to our travel.
Our driver, Youssef, was exceptional in every way. He was energetic & personable, extremely knowledgeable, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a truly Moroccan experience. He made sure that everything went smoothly every step of the way. Youssef knew that I am an avid photographer and was always prepared to stop along the way when a photo opportunity would arise. One afternoon a scene that I had visualized photographing did present itself. I had wanted to photograph a working donkey in the countryside and the perfect scenario arose…we stopped and asked if we could take pictures…and I think Youssef had as much fun chatting with the patriarch of the family as I had photographing him and the family farm work in progress! We all left with big smiles on our faces!
We also loved the Imperial cities tours with their history and markets and winding streets. In addition, Chefchaouen (the blue city) was amazing as was the coastal city of Essaouira. We enjoyed being able to wander in these more off the beaten path cities and absorb the wonderful sights and culture!
Our Sahara overnight will be a very long lasting memory…the afternoon that we were to ride camels into the dunes, we had a tremendous wind storm which forced us to delay our departure at a local hotel. What could have been a disappointment became a wonderful photo opportunity as the camel drivers brought their camels to rest in the blowing sand. We were eventually driven in a four wheel drive vehicle to our camp site and were able to ride by camel train to watch the sunrise the following morning!
EIT helped make our customized stay in Morocco truly a trip to remember and I would certainly recommend ExperienceIt! Tours to anyone interested in a very special journey to Morocco!
