Our trip with Jamal was exceptional and exceeded my expectations in every way. He is a perfect guide to have for a trip in Morroco; he speaks the various languages for each region, knows the history, philosophy, and architecture and was highly attentive to our needs. We stayed in fantastic accommodations, ate delicious food and went to so many fascinating and beautiful places. A trip of a lifetime!

Our experience with Lotfi, our driver, was truly outstanding. He’s knowledgeable, resourceful, accommodating and always an alert, courteous, and safe driver. Lotfi took special interest and responsibility in “owning” our private tour of Morocco, to be certain it met and exceeded our expectations in every way. For example, Lotfi was kind enough to invite us to his home for a special tea with his wife, and to meet his daughters, arranged a day trip from Fes to Sefrou, and devoted extra time to the Jewish Mellah area and synagogue at each stop for us. Mint Tea Tours took special care to be sure our guides met high standards, making our private tour in Morocco special. We recommend Mint Tea Tours and Lotfi as a driver to anyone who wishes a great Moroccan vacation. Shalom! Jonathan & Judith, Granada, Spain

Jamal tailored an exceptional tour of the medina of Fes for myself. I was met at my hotel where I was asked what I had done in Fes already to best make use of our time. The passion and knowledge of Jamal was obvious and shone through from the start as I was educated on the fundamentals of the medina. We visited the medicinal, textile and rug/carpet cooperative sections where individuals in the shop shared insights on their speciality. Finally we visited the beautiful university campus of Fes which lent an opportunity for myself to see and learn about practise in a mosque. Jamal is an official tour guide of Fes and I believe a tour with Mint Tea is the best way to see and learn about the intricacies of the medina !

When we got off the ferry we were not sure what to expect from our driver. Our concerns were that he would insist on showing us things we had already seen and explaining things we already knew. But Tarek’s winning smile and flexibility set those worries aside. He has shown us his wonderful country, explained things we didn’t understand and brought to our attention things we would have missed. Tarik’s use of English was excellent and he could explain everything clearly. He was the best guide/driver we ever had! We were deeply honored to be invited to Tarek’s home for tea and meeting his family was a highlight of our visit. Tarek kept his calm ways in the face of lost passport, changes in plans, where we wanted to eat. Simply - Tarek was the best. He made our trip to Morocco outstanding! His driving ability was outstanding, always safe and wise, from no traffic in the country to the craziness of Marrakech and Casablanca. Tarek was always cool, calm and accepting. We never worried about being in his car. We will think often of our Moroccan friend. Good luck! Mitch & Cynthia, USA

Lotfi was our driver during our 10 day private tour in Morocco. He was pleasant, unassuming at first glance. But as the day progressed, Lotfi proved to be much more than a driver. He was full of initiative, energetic, trustworthy, and intelligent. His ability went beyond what is required of a driver and we highly recommend him. Let us elaborate why. It is easy to do a job when everything goes as expected. However a person’s true ability only shines when there is a problem. When we were in Fez, we realized that we left our phone in our Casablanca hotel. Lotfi immediately thought of various options to help retrieve our phone, including driving back, taking the bus etc. etc. He just told us to go back to our hotel to rest and to leave to him to solve the problem. When we met Lotfi the following morning, he handed us the phone! In addition to his problem-solving ability he was also: An excellent driver: My husband suffers from car sickness especially at high altitude. However throughout the 3000 km trip or so, he did not require any medication. Lotfi drove cautiously and alertly ensuring he kept within the speed limit. Always ensuring our safety: Lotfi would patiently wait with us until we were safely checked into our hotels before leaving no matter how late it was in the evening he would walk us from the car park to hotels. Professional patient and kind hearted: My husband and I wanted to distribute candy to the many poor children in the countryside and mountains. Lotfi cheerfully helped us to purchase and carry the many boxes of candy. He stopped by the poor areas to help us distribute the candy. Despite dragging out our journey, Lotfi never lost his smile. In-depth knowledge about Morocco: Beside knowing his riads, Lotfi had good knowledge of the history of Morocco. He also gave us valuable advice on the various do’s and don’ts and especially help pull us out of some of the tourist traps. My husband and I travel widely taking, private tours to many countries. Lotfi was definitely the best Moroccan ambassador you can find. We highly recommend him and Mint Tea Tours to any tourist wanting to travel to Morocco. Good wishes, Scott & Marie, UK
