Once again we had a wonderful trip with Experience It! Tours and we remain very positive about your company and traveling in Morocco.
Regarding the tour itself, you arranged for us just exactly what we wanted to do. Believe me this part of the country is very under-developed from a tourist perspective, but of course that’s a great part of its charm. We loved Sidi Ifni – huge, unspoiled beaches, you get the sense of the real Morocco. As before we loved driving through the country and changing from mountains to oasis to near dessert. The trip was just what we wanted.
On to Rachid our driver. We can’t say enough positive about Rachid – he truly is exceptional and continued the same very high level of professionalism, attentiveness without being intrusive, exceeding thoughtful and just a wonderful person. One incident in particular will illustrate his extreme care for his clients When we were in Tarouante, we decided not to drive all the way to Tafraoute for a day trip (estimated to be about 3 hrs. each way) so we were looking for alternatives for the second day. We had a city guide who recommended we go to Sousa, and happened to run into Rachid while on our city tour and mentioned to him that we’d like to drive to Sousa the next day. We wanted to go to the souks in the a.m. so agreed to meet Rachid at 12:30. Rachid spent his morning checking out Sousa, arranged for us to have lunch is the courtyard of a lovely dar surrounded by orange groves with a fountain with rose petals in it and a great meal and oranges picked from the trees in front of us for dessert with cinnamon of couse , and also checked out a tour and a guide through the palmera – he even got references on the guide to be sure he was good/honest. Rachid also took us to an Argan Oil Cooperative where we watched women in all stages of processing the argan oil – a fabulous half-day which Rachid very carefully arranged on the spur of the moment. Also I might add Rachid is a terrific ambassador for Experience It! Tours and for Morocco. In short you have a real gem of a driver!
Regarding our experience with Experience It! Tours, we continue the same, very high regard for your company as after our first trip. All the administrative, pre-tour aspects were easy and seamless. You arranged what we asked for (only complaint was if there wouldn’t have been available a better hotel in Taroudante, which is a minor point).
Our regards to Rachid if you see him
