Marrakech Day Trip Proposal, October 2014
I have now returned from a truly fantastic weekend in Morocco. I am sincerely grateful to you for arranging everything so excellently on Saturday, and your general travel advice. Our driver Hesham was a pleasure to be with, we are very grateful for his time, and enjoyed conversing with him throughout. The route was, as promised, stunning and eye-opening.
Lawrence and the hotel in Ouirgane Valley were wonderful hosts, I could not have wanted more and the proposal went better than I could have possibly expected. The fact that my fiancée had no idea right up until the ring appeared, halfway up a mountain, was a feat not easily achieved. Lawrence took the time to walk us around the grounds too – a wonderful return venue for an anniversary or two I have no doubt.
Marrakech to Fes Desert Tour, October 2014
We had a great time on our trip! The Sahara was amazing… Indescribably cool.
Mohammed our driver was super accommodating.
Fes to Marrakech, October 2014
We had an incredible time in Morocco and an especially magical time on the portion of the trip you put together for us.
Your camp in The Sahara was exactly as promised … only better, as we were the only ones there! The hospitality in the camp was beyond what I could have imagined and the diner they made for us was one of the best meals we had the entire trip. You have really created something special there with your camp.
Our night in Skoura was almost equally special due to the love that is lavished on maintaining the property. The French husband and wife who run the place were such a treat and their cooking was as well! You were right that having something other than tagine for a night would be greatly appreciated at that point in our trip. The only problem with Skoura was that I wish we could have stayed longer! I am so glad you put us into this property rather than the other one I’d wanted. What would have just been a stop-over evening between sights became a wonderful stay in and of itself.
But above all else I would like to rave about our driver. I can’t say enough good things about him. I have traveled the world extensively, with guides and without. One of the things that always bothers me about guides is that they feel the need to talk a lot on the drives. But often the drives are long and conversation can get a bit tedious. Our driver seemed to enjoy peaceful introspection as much as we did. When he spoke, he was conveying information we found interesting and useful and the rest of the time he left us to our own thoughts. He also suggested we do Todra Gorge rather than Dades Valley and it ended up being one of Laura’s favorite stops on the trip. After three days with him we were truly sad to be back on our own. We would recommend your company and him to any of our friends with plans to go to Morocco.
So again, thank you SO MUCH for being so good at what you do and for giving us memories to last a lifetime. All around, one of the best trips we’ve ever taken.
