We planned our trip through Best of Morocco, online - an excellent organization! We wanted to have a safe but exotic and memorable family trip with our two daughters, who were are in university - we had only 10 days as that is all their school break allowed. We started and ended our adventure in Marrakech, where we stayed at Riad Les Yeux Blue - truly an oasis after a long travel from Toronto via Paris in mid-February. The staff were so welcoming, the riad is so beautiful (and spotless). After the taxi ride and walking down the narrow alleyways of old town Marrakech (exotic even for seasoned travelers), we were dazzled from the moment the antique wooden door opened to a gracious welcome. The girls had their own suite - the decor is so authentically old world Moroccan - a five star hotel could not come close to this intimate setting. Rose petals on the made-up beds, a hammam, a cozy dinner, breakfast on the rooftop with a spectacular view of the city. We travelled with a driver across the Atlas mountains on a 5 day trek to the Sahara desert where we rode camels for an overnight camp out in the middle of the
Sahara (highly recommended). Our stop back in Marrakech at the end of our trip was so sweet as we felt like we had returned "home" when we arrived back at Riad Les Yeux Blue. Mmmm.. I can taste the Moroccan mint tea and homemade almond biscuits as I write this...... We all agreed, we would return here in a heart beat. A wonderful trip for friends, a couple or family with older kids.
