We were very happy with our travel company. They were very responsive to our particular requests, and some of them were quite particular! We had a parade of excellent guides (and some were quite outstanding) and we had full confidence in our driver. The organizer of our trip, checked in with us twice during the two-week trip to make sure we were happy. This was our first private tour, and we felt like royalty, we were so well taken care of. Plus, we had a lot more direct contact with Moroccans with this arrangement. We had long conversations with guides, their friends and families, people in the hotels and shops, and all because of the entree the travel company provided. The trip was nearly perfect.
We signed up for a tasting tour of the Fes medina. We did not know then that our guide would be a lifelong resident of the medina, so deeply embedded that he knew absolutely everyone and everything that happened there. It was an intense pleasure to follow him as he darted through forgotten passageways to avoid crowds, expertly led us to the most delicious foods, introduced us to childhood friends, and convinced us to try Moroccan delicacies we could never have found ourselves. What a day that was.We had another great food day in Essaouira, where that guide helped us choose not only fresh fish, but flew through the market buying herbs and vegetables, and then took us to a "restaurant" that was just a kitchen waiting to prepare the food customers brought in. We invited him to join us and sat on the terrace waiting for what turned out to be an excellent meal talking about Morocco and the US, and that was another good day.The hotel in Marrakech was my favorite hotel I have ever stayed in, and I am now ready to retire there and become a permanent resident. We talked to the musicians who performed there, we were well served by the front desk when we needed something, and it's so beautiful that it was a delight to be lost in it.
For a first-time introduction to a new country and region, this trip was great. I'm not sure we'd do anything differently.
