Our Trip of a Life Time in Morocco
My wife and just returned from a 15 day tour of Morocco.
We booked with Trip.me.com and they connected us up with their local Moroccan tour agent Kamal. This operator allows you to select from a wide variety of preselected tours such as Highlights of Morocco, Culinary, Culture, Self-drive tours among others. The tours are private tours and may be totally customized to your preference, duration, and budget. Their intuitive filters may be used to create your tour but can also be fine-tuned with the local agency.
Our agent Kamal was very helpful in helping us with all our questions and was able to design the perfect tour.
Touching down in Casablanca Airport Mohamed 5th, we were greeted by Saad. Saad would be our driver and guide throughout our Morocco adventure.
We also assigned other tour guides for specific places we visited.
Saad is not only a knowledgeable guide but is also very familiar with navigating with the Moroccan people and culture. Some of the highlight are as follows: Casablanca, Rabat, The Blue Village of Chefchaouen, Fes, Volubilis (Ancient Roman Ruin settlement), Meknes, Merzouga Village, Desert Camp stay at Erg Chebbi Dunes, The Route of 1000 Kasbah | Todra Gorges and Skoura village, Ait ben Haddou (10 century fortified village and a world heritage) and Marrakech.
Kamal selection of Riad’s was suburb with each stay out doing the previous.
On our last leg of our tour in Marrakesh, my wife and I developed a very bad cold. Being too sick to adventure out in the city, we stayed within our riad hoping to fight-off our illness. When things turned for the worst for me we called Kamal for support and within 30 minutes Saad was at our door ready to take us to the International Clinic. Kamal also called at the clinic to check in of my condition. After the clinic Saad drove us to one of the only 2 pharmacies open on Sunday. This was all done beyond our tour cost. This is so-so appreciative when your so sick with fevers and chills and don’t know where to go for help. We are truly appreciative of their compassion and kindness in our time of need.
Kamal and Saad were reliable, respectful and competent and trustworthy. I can honestly say they went over and above the call-of-duty and where not afraid to show compassion and kindness. On several occasions during the trip Kamal phoned us to make sure everything was satisfactory.
I must say, we are tremendously pleased and impressed by the professionalism and most of all there kindness and hospitality that they shared with us to make our stay in Morocco a trip of a life time.
We would highly recommend using Trip.me and Kamal for your Trip of a Lifetime in Morocco!!
Thank you Kamal and Saad…. Insha'Allah!
We are Americans living in Germany for 3 years. We speak English and broken German. We flew from Frankfurt-Hahn to Fez and returned from Marrakesh and stayed for 8 days (Monday to Monday).
Thank you for a wonderfully organized vacation. We all agreed that this vacation was the best or certainly one of the best we have experienced as a family. Everyone had a different favorite location or activity, but overall everyone enjoyed everything.
Our driver did an exceptional job driving, selecting places to stop and eat, and giving us lots of information about the Berber people and Morocco. Being active Christians, this was the first time we were able to experience what life in a Muslim country was like, so we had lots of questions about dress, customs, prayer, mosques, religious practices, and our driver was happy to answer all our questions and explain differences between local tradition and what is in the Koran. A big highlight for us.
Fez, was great, in hindsight, it was a good starting point, not as crazy as Marrakesh. Also, our driver called our tour guide to move part of the tour to the day of arrival, which worked out great.
The drive to the desert was long but beautiful and worth it. If you could move the desert a bit closer to Fez and Marrakesh, that would be great! Other travelers should consider if 20 hours or more in the car is worth seeing the dunes, or rather spend more time closer to the city.
And, of course, we very much enjoyed Marrakesh and had a good mix of guided tour and exploring on our own buying pottery, fruit juices, and trying lots of new foods!
Again, thank you, and feel free to use me as a reference or review for other travelers.

We highly recommend Kamal. He was very responsive in helping us plan our trip and overall, we were very pleased. Kamal was our guide in Marrakech. Our driver and other guides were excellent and all, but one, of the hotels met or exceeded our expectations. The problem with the hotel could have been solved with a little better communication.Read More Read More Less
