We recently returned from a two-week tour of Morocco, arranged through the Morocco Tours arm of ExperienceIt Tours. While we are usually independent travelers, we know no Arabic or Berber, and my French is dodgy, so we quickly realized that in order to have a successful trip we would need to arrange a tour with some company and there are many to choose from! After extensive online research I sent an initial inquiry and received a reply within hours. All subsequent interactions with the Morocco Tours representatives were quick, professional, and responsive. I was pleased with the transparency and my ability to customize elements of the trip based on our tastes.
Our tour was great, and we had a wonderful, fun experience. The hotels were terrific, and Youssef was an unbelievable driver/tour guide. He knows so much about the history of Morocco which was most enlightening for us. Youssef is a wonderful ambassador for Morocco and your tour company. Elaine had a grand time negotiating for rugs and other items, and I just watched and paid the bill!
The trip was excellent. Everything was well planned. Our driver/guide Youssef was excellent. He helped make the trip much more enjoyable. I would recommend your group to any one going to Morocco. I found the markets very interesting and the desert experience was enjoyable.
We are just back from our fabulous 2 weeks in Morocco. The tour was excellent, well planned, well organized, well thought out and thoroughly enjoyable. We’d do it again in a minute. As you all well know, the key to any private tour like this is your driver.
Our driver Youssef was superb! Not only an accomplished and very professional and safe driver, he is a kind, considerate and very pleasant young man. He constantly was thinking ahead to do all the little things to make our tour special. Examples include always having cold water in the van, jumping out at every stop to open doors, hold umbrellas and make sure exiting the van was safely accomplished, cleaning the van inside and out every night, having the wifi hot spot always available and being a constant source of interesting useful information about Morocco. We never had to wait for Youssef. He seemed to magically appear just as we were ready to go to the next location. He knows a lot of people everywhere and constantly was checking on things for us, making calls for information, looking things up and generally making all the details go very smoothly. We felt like we had a personal valet!
Amy & Jeff, we want to thank you for our incredible trip to Morocco! It far exceeded our expectations. I have traveled in more than 50 countries (some multiple times) and Morocco is certainly at the top of the best. I was amazed at how diverse the country is and how friendly the people are. To go from city to mountains to desert in one day was exciting.
We owe a lot of our comfort, Moroccan knowledge, and fun to our guide Wahid. He was considerate and helpful in so many different ways. For example, I stepped on something on a beach in Spain that made my foot swell up. By the time we got to Tangiers and met Wahid I was in pain. He immediately found a doctor for me and helped me get prescriptions and a few days later I was fine. I really appreciate his consideration. Also, he is so knowledgeable about his Morocco and shared great information with us. In addition, Wahid not only understands English, he understands idioms, slang, etc. We more or less laughed our way through Morocco. Thank you for sharing Wahid with us!
We had a wonderful time in Morocco and our expectations were exceeded in every category. The properties we stayed at were wonderful and the food was great. Hassani was also great and turned out to be more of a host than a driver/guide. L’Ma Lodge was amazing and would make a great place for just a day to chill if there is time in the itinerary. Overall, we were very pleased with the service you provided and realize we would have missed so much if we weren’t touring with you. Having tea with a Nomad family in their tent in the Middle Atlas was one of many highlights.
We had an absolutely wonderful trip in Morocco! My children both said “I didn’t know what to expect, but it wasn’t this. This was awesome!”
From the very beginning, the service from you and Amy was wonderful. All the paperwork was very thorough and informative. I can’t say enough good things about our driver, Tarik! He was always punctual, helpful, polite and friendly. He went out of his way to accommodate our requests: my son asked him to drive to a park in Fes at a very early hour so he could do his training run (he’ll be running the NY marathon in a couple of weeks). It was the only place he couldn’t run directly from where we were staying. I asked Tarik to drive us to the street where my house was when I lived there as a young child. Alas, the villa is gone, replaced by an apartment house and the street name is changed. I also asked Tarik to drive us to the Church I attended. We went twice – once, it was locked, and once when I was able to make arrangements for someone to open it for us. This was the day before we left Morocco and was the icing on the cake for me! Tarik was always mindful of timely rest stops and meals. He really went above and beyond what his normal driving duties were. We were very grateful to him for that. My brother is coming next year in October and I would like to request Tarik as his driver as well.
Our trip to Morocco was absolutely perfect. The only problem is that it wasn’t long enough….From the moment we arrived, and met Ryad [our driver] at the airport, everyday was well organized, and interesting. The Tour guides that were chosen, were informative and welcoming. We both learned a lot about Morocco.
One special moment, is when our 4×4 driver was taking us to the camp, we stopped on the road to visit a nomad family. They invited us into their tent, and we met a baby goat. We took a few photos, & gave them some $$$. I’ll never forget that moment….
My daughter and I loved our trip to Morocco and would highly recommend your company. We thought our drive Ryad was exceptional and very easy to be with. We felt he made the trip so much easier and comfortable for us. He is a really nice person, very committed to making his clients’ experience a great one, if not “perfect”. He was protective of us and helpful in every way. We feel we now have a friend in Morocco.
We really liked our guides as well, especially the one in Fez and in Rissani. I do wish we could have spent more time in Marakkech as I felt we only scratched the surface.
We would highly recommend Morocco Tours. Your responses were always prompt, friendly, thorough and informative. The information and details you provided was excellent, organized and professional. The entire trip proceeded like clockwork. You made it so easy! Thank you so much!
We loved our driver, Laaziz. He was the consummate professional, courteous, and fun. He quickly became our friend, not just our driver and graciously answered a million questions about his homeland and religion. He never once took me anywhere that had a Turkish toilet – for which I am eternally grateful! LOL. Every single rest stop, restaurant, and guide he provided were great. We laughed about all we wanted was a bucket of ice and a Dr. Pepper so what did he do? Appeared the next day with a bucket of ice for the bottled water, of course! He watched over us like a mother hen and went above and beyond every single day. We sang our way through the high Atlas Mountains sharing Don McLean and Garth Brooks with him. We nicknamed him “Aladdin” because no matter the request…serious or joking, large or small…he delivered. As a very small token of our appreciation (and in addition to what we hope, was a generous tip) we gave him a small brass Aladdin lamp. His tears of appreciation were quickly followed by ours when we had to say goodbye.
