One Week Tour, Marrakech & Beyond

I knew from the moment that Alecia Cohen answered my first email inquiry that we would be listened to and cared for... and she delivered. My husband and I could take just a week away form work and knew that we would only be able to sample the treasures of Morocco. Alicia gave us excellent choices, and knowing that we liked to pack things in, we did. We were met at the airport in Marrakech by both our wonderful driver, Hossaine Amiri and also our delightful and erudite Marrakesh guide, Abdullah Rahmane. Marrakech can be chaotic and confusing, but we felt looked after the entire time. (We did become quite lost one night on our own...but they had carefully given us the bearings to find our way home.... and we did even in the dark, dark medina! Abdullah gave us a really good introduction to the complex history, politics and treasures of Morocco. Without that, the trip would still have been fun, but far less meaningful. He really knows his stuff! We stayed at the wonderful Riad Palais Sebban in the medina. It was beautiful, mysterious and maze like. Our suite was stunning, and while located overlooking the pool and courtyard, we felt the tremendous luxury of quiet and space in gorgeous surroundings. We managed several trips into Berber country in the High Atlas. In the first place, we had a lovely fellow, Jamal, take us up to the waterfalls. It is high and the air thin, but he was very patient. If I had known how rugged it was, I would have worn boots...but i had, cleverly, removed them from my suitcase. Not to worry, Jamal practically carried me several times to keep my feet dry. What a gentleman. My husband and I were impressed by the dignity and pride displayed by the Berber people. We were welcomed into a home for tea and a treat..and even got to spend a bit of time with the family donkey and cow. The next day we headed to Imlil, stopping along the way at Richard Branson's place. Over the top to be sure, and what a setting!
