Fantastic fun with Hmad and Zaid on 4 day tour
In late March, my husband, 14 yr old son and I thoroughly enjoyed our 1st visit to Morocco. We only had 8 days so chose to explore Marrakesh, the desert and Essaouira. After reading great reviews of Trips to Morocco we organized a 4 day/3 night desert tour with them. They collected us in Marrakesh, drove over the Tizi n’Tichka pass through the High Atlas Mountains (stunning!), through the Dadès Valley and Berber villages to Erg Chebbi then back through the Draa Valley, through the pass again and on to Essaouira where we had asked them to drop us off (Hmad insisted on getting us to our riad before leaving:)). Our guide Hmad was knowledgeable, interesting, patient with all our questions and introduced us to Berber music! Our driver Zaid's English wasn't as strong but we still shared many laughs. They were ever so friendly (like all the Berbers we met) flexible, always concerned for our comfort and welfare, and good fun to spend 4 long days on the road with:) Riding camels through the desert to the camp with all it's fun was a spectacular highlight of the trip, but we thoroughly enjoyed all the highlights along the route. We had chosen 'moderate' accommodations for the 3 nights and found they were each outstanding, including the desert camp, with a special shout out to Dar Rihana in Dades! We have no hesitation in recommending Trips to Morocco and Hmad. We are experienced travelers but it was such a treat to leave organizing the 'on the road' portion of our Moroccan holiday to these experts; just relax and enjoy!
