Marrakech Desert Tour with Erg Chebbi, November 2014
Thanks for your email. It’s been raining quite a bit here in France but I didn’t know about the floods in Morocco. When I got your email I went to the BBC news and saw the flooding in some of the places we visited! Oh my… we just missed a disaster. And those poor people… it looks like it will be a long rebuilding process.
Abdu was aa terrific driver on those narrow mountain roads. He was very careful and we were comfortable with him at the wheel. He’s definitely a keeper — you’re lucky to have him!
The hotels were pretty much as we expected. There was only one glitch: the hot water at the Safari Luxury Camp worked in the sink, but did not work in the shower which was about 10 feet away. Mohammed, the host, tested the hot water in the sink upon our arrival and we were all satisfied that it worked; however, we should have also tested it in the shower! A cold shower on a cold desert morning is not good. As is our nature, we shrugged it off and did not dwell on it, but if we had tested the shower we could have moved to another tent and avoided the problem altogether.
Overall, we had a fantastic time and really enjoyed seeing so much of Morocco! And we appreciate the fact that you were so easy to work with. Very responsive, and we especially appreciate that since our trip was planned at the last minute. We will definitely tell others to use Authentic Morocco!
Marrakech to Fes Desert Tour, November 2014
We had a wonderful time in Morocco! For us the best parts were spent on our tour with your company. Hicham was always professional, punctual, helpful and accommodating. Visiting the Sahara was an extraordinary experience and managed perfectly for us. If I return with my husband we would book more extensive tours with you. Many thanks for a great, safe service.
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.
