FABULOUS from the moment that Majid met me in Morocco to the moment I tearfully told him good bye in Marrakech 16 days later. The driver that I originally requested from you was not available but there was no way that anyone could possibly surpass Majid.
He was intelligent, well informed, funny and so attentive to our needs. He truly watched over us like a mother hen. We couldn’t have been in better hands!
Highlights of the trip are more difficult as there were so many. Certainly the trip up to the dunes to see both the sun set and the full moon rise was an unforgettable moment. Experiencing, accidentally, “Two Weddings and a Funeral” in Ourzatea was both a cultural lesson and also a somewhat hysterical moment as we were abruptly awakened at 1:30 am with a hullabaloo outside a window in our riad and were able to see a Moroccan bride jump out of a box as part of a wedding celebration! Obviously you didn’t plan this but part of what made the trip so special were some of the serendipitous things which occurred during our visit.
The trip itself felt both magical and surreal. Due to Majid and our city tour guides, I learned so much about Islam and came home feeling like a good will ambassador for Morocco and its religion.
Our stay at the Kasbah du Toubkal was so special, from the mule ride up the mountain, which was hilarious,to the serenity of what we encountered once we arrived at the top. It was a much needed respite from the rigors of the trip as some of the days were quite long. My one somewhat negative comment would be that you suggest to people that they stay two or three days longer than originally planned, just to have some down time. Also the riad that we requested in Fes was very unique and lovely and the owner was as unique as his property!
The Riad La Maison Arabe at the end of our trip was all i could hope for in a warm and hospitable inn. From the moment we checked in the first time until our return stay two nights later, when they welcomed us like long lost friends, it was a marvelous place to end our stay.
I would, and will, recommend your company and our driver, Majid to anyone contemplating a trip to Morocco. What I experienced and received during my 16 days there was great value for the price I paid. I can’t thank you enough, Kit, for all of your help in setting this up.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have traveled broadly in the world but this was a once in a lifetime journey to a unique country. Thank you again for a beautiful vacation, fashioned by us with the guidance and expertise of you . Do you do other countries than Morocco?!
