My daughter and I had a magical journey in Morocco. We traveled from Rabat to Chefchouen and Fez, stayed in a "tent camp" in Merzouga, crossed back over the Atlas Mountains through the Ourika Valley to Qurzazte and Essaouria, and ended the journey in Marakech. Our agent planned the itinerary, and booked us into astonishingly beautiful riads and kasbahs. He was responsive to any questions and imparted many of his own travel trips from having visited Morocco on many occasions.
The very essence of the trip however was due to our wonderful guide. He showed us how Moroccans live, whether it was
while seeing some of the aspects of daily life in a small Berber village, experiencing the blacksmiths work at a Sunday souk, or
seeing the glorious Islamic architecture in Fez and Marakech. He had expertise in handing unforeseen complications such as when the weather conditions closed two of the three roads over the Atlas Mountains. He possessed an arsenal of information based on his own experiences, and arranged each day with great care.
We felt completely comfortable with our skilled driver and were glad for his expertise as we traversed the many hairpin turns through the mountains.
Our agent suggested that my daughter take a surfing lesson in Essaouria, which she did at 8:00 one morning. The instructor had her up on the board within a few tries. Awesome! Our nights at the Kasbah Bab Ourika with the snow capped mountains in the distance, the sound of the rushing Ourika River and small Berber villages clinging to the mountain sides.
While it was amazing to travel through so many areas, ideally, it would be terrific to have more time to stay another night at some of the beautiful riads and kasbahs.
