We added One Week in Morocco onto a trip to Portugal but it became the highlight of our trip thanks to Alecia's planning. We had 4 nights and 5 days available and managed to do everything we wanted in that time.
I really wanted to see the dunes of the Sahara and Alecia arranged a camel trek with an overnight stay in a tented camp. That was the real highlight for us, followed closely by our 2 night stay in the lovely Les Jardin in Skoura.
We had a great driver, Tahar, who took the best care of us. Due to the shortness of our trip and where we needed to start and end, we had to cover a lot of ground and Tahar was very flexible in accomodating our needs. The scenery along the way was incredible and Tahar made many many stops for us for pictures. Our stops for food were well planned and Chez Pierre in the Dades Valley was magnificent.
Alecia arranged for us to have a home lunch with a Berber family on the way back from the dunes. It was great to have a home experience and the ladies got impressive henna tattos on their hands. Another highlight was our tour of Ait Benhaddou with Mohammed. He is so kind and gentle. It was nice to be able to visit his family home and have a personal tour before the crowds moved in.
We really enjoyed our tour and hope to use Travel Exploration Morocco for a more extensive tour some day.
