Words are not enough to fully express what a wonderful time I had and how grateful I am for the entire team of Morocco tours, Experience It Tours. I want to specially recognize Hamid who treated us as special family members and not just guests and clients. Hamid is much more than a skilled driver. He is an experienced, extremely knowledgeable tour guide. He was generous in sharing his knowledge with us in a way we could understand. He insured we were comfortable, well fed, and safe. He went above and beyond expectations when he waited at the airport in Marrakech until we were all on board for our safe flight out of the country. I think we all miss him already.
I was impressed by the itinerary you helped us choose. It was the best and I feel like I got to see and experience and learn so much about the country and its wonderful, friendly people. I was particularly impressed with the hardworking, industrious, and talented people we met and observed at the markets, in the villages, at the tannery, pottery, and fossil factories. I loved seeing all the olive farms and fruit orchards. The food was fabulous and each meal was better than the last. The guides we had in the cities and the Roman Ruins were first class. Their knowledge was university level and I feel fortunate to have spent time in their virtual “classroom”. Although our trip was cut short, we did get to experience some much of the best of Morocco.
We felt so welcome and were well pampered at the Riads. I would like to especially recognize the staff at Jaimas Madu in the desert, and at L’Ma Lodge in Skoura. We were the only guests at both locations and the friendly men and women at L’Ma Lodge opened just for our group. I have so many special memories of the food and hospitality at each place we stayed. I would like to extend a special thanks also to Riad Myra who prepared a wonderful meal for us after the restaurants in Fez had closed. My favorite memory from our Riad stays was our last night (we did not know it was our last night) and dancing after dinner and laughing and just enjoying life with Hamid and the staff at L’Ma Lodge.
Riding a dromedary in the Sahara Desert during a sandstorm was an experience I will cherish forever. I want to do it again (without the sandstorm). Sharing it with my fellow travelers ( 2 of whom I first met over 30 years ago) made it even better. Our camel driver was skilled and focused on ensuring we had both a safe and absolutely fun ride.
I want to send a special thanks from my heart to my fellow travelers, Kimberly, Alyson, and Brien, who, with the help of Vienna, made this truly a grand adventure and birthday celebration. Each day was a celebration and I cherish those memories. Certainly the champagne, special desserts, to include a birthday cake with candles, and the singing of the birthday song, many times over made this my best birthday ever!
In spite of the unknown and uncertainty during this pandemic crisis, thanks to your team, we could relax and enjoy our experiences knowing you all had our back and would take good care of us. Thank you is not a big enough word.
Yes, absolutely, I will recommend Morocco Tours and Experience It tours to all my friends and all who express an interest. I am grateful to my friends, the Pikes, who recommended all of you to me.
May all of you and your loved ones remain safe and healthy. I pray all this ends soon and also that your company continues to be successful in bringing the beauty of Morocco to many more tourists. I look forward to the Return to Morocco Tour.
