Marrakech with Erg Chegaga, Tata and Taffroute

We want to thank you for planning such an amazing trip. Logistically everything went off without a hitch, and our guide Hussein and driver Abdullah were fantastic. The itinerary was perfect and we came away seeing exactly what we wanted. Hussein went out of his way to show us the local culture of each area we visited and also got us out of a couple of uncomfortable situations smoothly and professionally. His style of guiding is very laid back, and while this might not suit some tourists who need to be engaged or entertained at every moment, it was perfect for us. We also ended up spending a fair amount of time with Hussein and Abdullah on their off day and ate meals with them (they did not force this on us) and we really enjoyed their company. The trip wouldn't have been the same without the meals and conversations we all shared. All in all I think this was one of the best trips we have ever taken, and it was certainly the best trip in terms of value. We've traveled all over the world but found Morocco to be truly special … the towns in the far south are like stepping back in time.

Morocco Tour with Erg Chegaga

I am back home, getting back into "regular" mode. I am yet to download my pictures and reminisce about our time in Morocco, but I really feel like I had the most wonderful time out there. While I cannot claim to have seen and experienced all that Morocco has to offer, I do feel a sense that I "got" what I set out to see and do. The places we visited, the people we met, and the experiences we encountered were all truly enjoyable and memorable. While vacation destinations (including Morocco) look great on paper, it takes a lot of planning and organizational capabilities to translate that into reality- and I have to really thank you for making this happen for us! You took care of all the little details, ensuring that there was no hitch throughout the time we were on vacation. My only regret is that we could not get to meet you- that would have added another dimension to our time in Morocco. I also want to single out Abdi and Mohamed. They both took great care of us, and we truly felt secure and safe during all the travels. This left us with open minds, and able to enjoy our time and all the experiences. Both Abdi and Mohamed were very polite & helpful and their calm, friendly personalities chimed well with ours. I am not sure when I will be visiting Morocco again, but the "sad" thing will be that you will not be there to help plan a trip. But I do want to use this opportunity to wish you the very best in retirement- I am sure it is a well deserved one. And knowing you and your passion for Morocco, I am certain that Morocco "courses" in your blood, and that you will no doubt spend time there, continuing with your noble work of helping the local communities (visiting the villages and interacting with the children in the Atlas Mountains was a highlight for me!) . Thank you once again,

Marrakech and Fes Tour

A belated thank you for a wonderful trip. All of your people, arrangements and the riads in Marrrakech and Fes were perfect. Riad Kettani is an amazing space - we really loved Fes because of this Riad.

Morocco Tour with Ourika Valley, Marrakech, Essaouira and El Jadida

I just wanted to follow up and THANK you for the wonderful job you did with your guidance, support, and choices for our trip. I have so many memories, I'm not sure where to begin. On the whole, the hotels were perfect. Everyone we encountered (from the staff at the hotels to the drivers and guides) were extremely professional, and in my opinion, adorable. I loved all of them! My personal favorite? Abdul. As we spent the most time with him, we got to know him well. We really connected. I learned so much from him regarding the culture and human nature, plus, we spent a lot of time giggling. Again, thank you!

Marrakech with Essaouira and High Atlas

We had a great time in Morocco and I felt very comfortable and taken care of with your team on the ground! I really appreciate all your patience and helpfulness during our back and forth with planning the trip. Going into the trip, I had a lot of peace of mind about the itinerary and how all would go. Alla and Jaouad were wonderful drivers and guides. The city guide we had for the first two days in Marrakech (I forget his name now) was also very helpful and got us oriented to the medina quickly. I noticed that we were less likely to be approached or followed in the medina when he was with us, and he seemed to know everyone, which was cool to see. Had I known what I know now, I would have scheduled another night in Essaouira! That riad was just beautiful - I would consider going back to Morocco just to stay in Essaouira at that riad! Imlil was also very beautiful, and I'm glad we took advantage of hiking up to the next village (we didn't need a guide). The Imlil riad and hosts were great - we loved being able to see the milky way at night from the roof! Overall, we had a great time, and have to thank you and your team who were kind, helpful, and professional.

Marrakech Desert Tour with Fes and Rabat

We enjoyed our time in Morocco. Hassan was great, helpful and making good suggestions, even on our ‘off’ days. Abdul was greatly appreciated as he is a very careful driver. That was extremely important as driving is quite the challenge. Overall, we had a very positive impression of Morocco and Authentic Morocco and will recommend the company to anyone wanting to visit Morocco. Thanks again for all of your help and your quick responses to our emails were greatly appreciated especially when our friend had to cancel a the last minute.

Morocco Tour

We had a wonderful time in Morocco! It is hard to pick out highlights but the Dunes Camp at ERG CHEBBI certainly stands out. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and chats with Mohammed the host. The camel ride at dusk was a hit and the stay was certainly worth the extra money; we would all highly recommend it. The other standout for all of us, was ABDUL our driver/guide and we cannot speak too highly of him. He went out of his way to accommodate us (stopping for photos of storks and nests and more storks and nests, and even looking for flamingoes!) We enjoyed intelligent conversations; shared a similar sense of humour, having lots of laughs seeing the funny side of things; and could relax with his driving. He was thoughtful, able to anticipate situations and was respectful, not just to us but also to locals when passing through towns and villages. In our opinion he is the consummate guide, and proved a hard act to follow! Please pass on our thanks to him, as we know he helped make the week together wonderful. Our accommodation was great- we loved the ambience created by the restored riads, the warm and friendly welcomes and the traditional mint tea and sweets served on arrival.

I mentioned the dunes camp, but we also loved SKOURA oasis. In particular I enjoyed walking about by myself with my camera - the light at dusk just beautiful. Les Jardins de Skoura itself, as well as the setting, picture perfect. The Medinas were interesting but frenetic. Essaouira was very different and I would probably stay a few more days if returning. Palm Valley at Tafraoute was amazing. Our only criticism, if you could call it that, is that there was too much food. All of us absolutely loved the food, but felt we were wasting it as we simply could not eat it all!! So, a wonderful holiday! We loved the scenery, and the variety of scenery (some of which reminded us of parts of Australia); met some interesting and friendly people; savoured the wonderful food; relished the sights, colour and sounds( apart from the motor bikes roaring past!) and activity of the medinas. Thank you for helping to make this a great holiday. Corresponding with you was so easy, and you always responded promptly , answering any queries I had. The only problem is that it has left us with a taste for more!!

Fes to Marrakech 5 Day Desert Tour

The trip was great and we are both glad we did it. The driver Abdul was friendly, informative and showed us a lot. Glad we got down to see the deserts in the southern part of the country and got to drive though the Atlas Mountains. A trip to Morocco wouldn't really be complete if you didn't get down south and such a good way to get from Fez to Marrakech. The hotels were very enjoyable; a nice combination of being in small towns and out of the way places and very comfortable with good food. It certainly was more luxurious compared to my old hostel days. We both did like the hotels and the staff at all of them were good. Abdul and the tour did take us to a lot of places that would not necessarily be easy to get to by public transportation. The scenery and historical sites were good and enjoyed walking around the places we stayed at. Although I can't really say I like riding a camel, that night in the desert was great too. The deep desert camp is way more comfortable they I imagined and it was a good time. So all and all, we are both happy with the trip and would do another one with you. Very happy with the places we visited in Morocco and got a good feel for the country in our 3 plus weeks in Morocco. And thanks for arranging the trip so quickly. I emailed you for the first time on a Friday night and took off on the trip the following Thursday.
