Our trip arranged and managed by this travel agency was perfectly accomplished. They called me periodically to ensure everything was going as planned and offered support for anything we wanted or needed. The driver was terrific, responsive and ensured we felt safe at all times even through some mountainous roads. The local guides were experienced and very knowledgeable about the region they served. Overall this company did what we wanted. They gave us an exciting trip where we experienced the local culture and food, saw all of the important sites, saw the awesome sights and met some wonderfully open and friendly people in every locale.
This is difficult to choose because every aspect and every location had some surprise, special beauty, and interesting aspect. That being said, the art museum in Rabat is impressive and the YSL in Marrakech is a delight for the eyes in both content and building including the next-door garden. The site at Volubilis is amazing and must be seen, even after visiting Rome and Sicily. The adventures that we will tell others about most are; 1) the dromedary ride and exotic, luxury desert camp experience, a "must" for any first time visitor and 2) the Atlas mountain hike and visit to the Berber village. However, to get a basic understanding of Morocco, a visitor must see all that is offered in Rabat, Fes, Marrakech and Essaouira.
Also a difficult question to answer. I would not change the itinerary. Personally I would like to have had more writeup or links to information about the historic sites we visited so the names, dates and sequence of events could be absorbed better. I would like a timeline relating events in one place to those in other places. It also helps to relate events in Morocco to major events in the greater Middle East and Europe. We wanted to know more about Meknes than we had time to discover during our visit. I would like street maps for parts of the Medinas we stayed in so that we felt comfortable walking the areas near our Riads; the alleys are so confusing we felt we could easily get lost. I need more time to think about souk experience. We visited these markets in Fes and Marrakech and I initially feel the experience needs more structure or more direction, although it is great to taste the difference food offerings and to get close to many of the local artisan skills/crafts.
