Adventure in Morocco

Jun 24, 2011

Hi Zaid,

We visited Morocco in May 2011. This country is absolutely stunning with its vast variety of colors and mixed landscapes. While scouting for information on traveling in Morocco, we came across the website of Best Morocco Tours and contacted Zaid Boulaaouan, who owns the company. This turned out to be one of the best decisions taken vis-à-vis the Morocco trip. We wanted to start the tour in Fes then travel to Merzouga and return to Marrakech. Zaid then drafted an itinerary for the trip. Our driver and guide Hassan picked us up at our Riad in Fes and helped us load our stuff into the Landcruiser. From this moment on, the tour began! Hassan is of Berber origin and comes from the town of Rissani on the outskirts of the Saharan Desert. He was extremely well acquainted with the surroundings and could explain things very well. He showed us around Fes and took us to a point where we could take panoramic photos of the Medina. We the departed for Merzouga the next day after taking a night halt at Midelt. The hotels organized by Best Morocco Tours were also fantastic. The breakfast and dinner were included in the tour price and therefore we took stops on the way for lunch. We stayed atPalais des Dunesin Merzouga overlooking the sand dunes. The camel ride into the desert was fascinating and the crux of the trip. We spent the night in a Berber tent, ate Berber food to music. The next day we made our way to Marrakech with a night stop at Ouarzazate. All throughout the trip, we had no stress of the time. Hassan only reminded us from time to time but we had adequate time for short stops at picturesque locations, valleys, gorges, kasbahs etc. All the hotels on our trip were very clean and the food was very good. As we were escorted by a local, we felt safe at all times throughout the journey. All in all, it was a wonderful adventure in Morocco and we would heartily recommend a trip with Best Morocco Tours Company.

Thanks Zaid and Hassan for the memorable trip!
