Thankyou from 4 Happy Travellers

It has been 3 months since we travelled with Destination Morocco, but still the images keep flooding back into my mind of deserts, souks and luxury riads followed by warm friendly faces, amazing architecture and delicious aromas wafting from kitchens all around us... and the colours, everywhere I look...on the fences and walls of the schools, in the fabrics, carpets and spice mounds, in the skies, on the land and all around us.

We booked a 14-day tour that saw the 4 of us in a very comfortable van with our wonderful driver, Yassin, exploring everything that Morocco has to discover. We could not have a kinder, gentler more warm and accommodating driver that Yassin leading us around this wonderful country. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he went out of his way to make sure we were happy and comfortable. Yassin stopped and waited patiently for us as we stopped to explore, he took us to places that we might have missed on our own and was always trying to make every moment of our holiday the best possible.

We chose to travel in October and the weather was great right throughout our fortnight there…. hot but nothing you couldn’t deal with.

The accommodation in every place we travelled was fabulous from modern, contemporary Riads in Rabat, Skoura and Essaouria, through to more traditional but equally beautiful and comfortable ones in Chefchaouen, Marrakech and Fes….and let’s not forget the unbelievable desert camp in Merzouga.

In every single place we stayed, the rooms were comfortable and well appointed with excellent bathrooms and really had everything that was needed for a perfect night’s sleep. Even in the middle of the desert we had ensuite bathrooms, comfortable, fluffy beds and some of the best food we ate in Morocco- not to mention the best-looking Bedouin camel driver taking us out on our camel ride.

The local guides that were hired to take us around many of the places we visited were always interesting, knowledgeable and gave us all an ever-increasing understanding of the people, culture and life of both old and new Morocco.

Every restaurant recommendation turned out to be another mouthwatering sensation and every piece of advice given to us by Yassin throughout the trip turned out to be useful and accurate.

Destination Morocco’s trip was excellent value for money and I couldn’t recommend travelling with them more highly. Their communication was efficient and all details of the trip worked perfectly and smoothly.

Of course the one big thing that made this trip so amazing is the wonderful Moroccans themselves. We were treated with kindness and respect wherever we went and look forward to revisiting them some time in the future.

Just one item to note: when we originally arrived in Morocco and we went outside to find our driver ( didn’t know the wonderful Yassin yet), the sign that was held up said ‘Luxury Desert Camps’ and we were looking for a ‘Destination Morocco’ sign. As we had Yassin’s phone number it was not a huge problem as we rang him and he came and found us, but it might be a good idea to let other travelers know all the names that might appear on the sign

Thank you Destination Morocco- from 4 happy travellers.
