Booking a trip to Morocco felt very overwhelming, so my husband solicited the help of a travel guide. After phone calls with a few different companies, he felt most confident with Hassan at Under Moroccan Sun.
After talking with Hassan, we appreciated that he wasn’t pushy at all with booking us, yet more interested in learning about what we wanted our travel experience to be. He was always professional, super responsive and very knowledgeable of different activities we could try. Additionally, UMS is a locally based travel company, so all the guides and places we stayed at allowed our money to go back into the local economy, which was important to us.
Being a younger couple that likes to really try to immerse ourselves in the culture, we had no desire to be huddled onto tour buses or tossed into large group outings. UMS provides a private driver that is with you the duration of your trip, and all guided activities were private. Hassan created an itinerary that captured historical tours of each city, cultural activities, luxury leisure and downtime, and adventure!
The service we received from the moment we arrived was incredible. Our private driver, Mohcin, was so welcoming and made us instantly feel comfortable! We very much enjoyed spending 10 days with him, and are grateful for how well he took care of us! He was always prompt, flexible with requests and is just a great guy to be around! He even took us to his sister’s home to experience her amazing couscous and meet some of his family - a memory we will never forget!
Each of the local guides we met was knowledgeable and so kind. They each made us feel comfortable; always happy to answer questions, take photos, show us hidden gems, and ensure we were happy during our guided tours. We never felt like they were just showing tourists around, yet more like we were their friends visiting and they got to show us the ins and outs of their city!
Every riad/hotel we stayed at was amazing. They were all well located for us to venture out on our own, clean and comfortable, with great staff. Hassan really hooked us up with the best of the best!
I could keep going on with how incredible Hassan, Mohcin, and everyone we met along the way was in making our trip to Morocco truly unforgettable. Hassan created a trip of a lifetime for us with the perfect balance of activity and leisure. We felt so fortunate that he stopped by our riad to meet and have coffee together on our last day! We would give him 10 stars if we could and highly recommend you look no further than Under Moroccan Sun for your trip! And be sure to request Mohcin - you won’t regret either decision!!
