My mother and I just returned from an unforgettable ten day tour in Morocco, and this tour certainly exceeded both of our expectations. I had wanted to visit Morocco for the past 15 years, and was lucky enough to have the opportunity to travel with my mother. We agreed that, without our amazing tour guide, the trip could have gone very differently. We are SO pleased with our guide, Abdull, and I highly recommend him for any future group travel. He was absolutely perfect, from start to finish. He was polite, respectful, an excellent driver, and always made sure that both my mother and I were safe and well taken care of. He made sure that we had fun everyday and always maintained a positive attitude. Also, he let us stop to take loads of pictures along the way, and traveled at our pace, which was a welcomed relief from larger group tours. He always encouraged us to enjoy the sights, and relax, without any stress or pressure to stick to an itinerary. He let us stop for coffees, restroom breaks, and to stretch our legs, which was much needed after all our driving. Abdull was organized, kind and, to be honest, one of the reasons that this trip left such a remarkable impression for both my mother and me. He became our friend, and we were sad to leave him! Without a great tour guide, a tour can be dull or boring. But with Abdull's knowledge and passion for his country, he made us feel welcome and at home. He even walked us to and from restaurants in the evenings, to make sure that we were safe and secure. The hotels and riads we stayed at were all exceptional, clean, with excellent service. Not once did we feel that we were not safe or looked after by the staff. All of our belongings were safe at all times, and we never had anything stolen, which of course, is a concern when traveling. The day tours in Fez and Marrakech were also extremely well organized and detailed, and my mother and I never had to worry about a thing. I highly recommend Around Morocco for your future travels. And be sure to ask for Abdull as your guide! We had an absolutely perfect vacation, from start to finish, and can't wait to go back to Morocco.

While our title says “friends” our travel was a daughter/daughter one! Both of us had independently wished to visit this part of our the world for our own reasons. The tour itself brought us to absolutely gorgeous visuals both in terms of places and people. We were able to visit so many different areas and our guide knew Not only EVERYONE, but EVERYWHERE and yes , you can reverse it. I am in awe of the guide And the country!

My Daughter and I were just in Marrakesh for six nights and our guide Abdull was absolutely great! He was a pleasure to be with; friendly, helpful, accommodating and always went the extra mile to make our trip special. When we left I was sad to be saying goodbye to a new friend I was going to miss. I highly recommend Abdull. Five stars!!!

My wife and I went to Morocco in the beginning of December, this beautiful country really blew our mind off, in our 8-days tour we drove along a beautiful coast line stopped-by for some yummy seafood lunch, we passed through the High/Mid Atlas mountains with snow peaks, we took camel ride and did “glamping” in the desert. Other than all the beautiful geographical features, Morocco is full of ancient history too, we were impressed during the entire trip, most importantly we engaged around Morocco to organise this tour for us, from initial enquiry till we finalised our itinerary, they offered us a hassle-free trip, they can customise any tour according to your need. I can say they are one of the best tour companies we had encountered. Hicham was our driver/guide during our entire 8 days, he is very friendly and knowledgable, he is also very caring and make sure we always feel comfortable. We enjoyed our drive, other than seeing beautiful nature outside the windows, we enjoyed our discussions with Hicham about almost anything from History/religion/politics to food. He even brought us to visit his parents along the way, let us understand more about Moroccan culture. Other traveller might have different experience, but we are sure with Around Morocco and great guide like Hicham, your experience will be an amazing and very pleasant one.

The first paragraph of this review is for seniors and those with mobility issues. Around Morocco uses riads located in the medinas. The riads never have elevators and seldom have rooms on the ground floor. Because the ceilings are very high, going up a floor is about twice the normal number of steps. Moroccan dwellings seem to use single steps between rooms and at random places. Perfect for tripping you if you are not careful. The location in the medina means that the van often has to park some distance from the riad and commits you to walk to many more places than you would otherwise. We were six 70 somethings and only three of us had two good knees. Around Morocco requested rooms for us on the lowest floor but riads are small and we never had three rooms on the lowest floor. Was it worth it to deal with all the stairs and the extra walking? Absolutely YES! Our guide Hicham, the hospitality of the people at the riads, and atmosphere of the old cities made us feel connected to Morocco. We did a 14 day tour that began in Casablanca and proceeded clockwise to Rabat, Meknes, Volubilis, Fez, over the Middle Atlas mountains to Merzouga, west through the Todas Gorge and Dades Valley to Ouarzazat, back over the High Atlas mountains to Marrakesh. We then went to Essaouira and finally back to Casablanca for our flights home. Staying in riads and in or near the old city gave us an intimate view of the country. The company worked with us to customize the tour and we had an amazing trip. I can’t say enough good things about our guide, Hicham. He treated us like his favorite aunts and uncles (since we are old enough to fit that category.) He did a lot of extras -- took our laundry to more affordable laundries, bought medicine for an ailing traveler, bought a sim card and installed it on my phone, took us food shopping, and honored us by taking us to his parents' home. He always made sure we were comfortable. The few times we had issues with a room he worked with the riad to change the room for us. He was an excellent driver and had lots of great information to share with us. He is a proud Moroccan but was candid about problems with the country. He honored us by taking us to meet his family. Our stays at the riads were a highlight particularly the Riad Kalaa 2 in Rabat, the Riad Yacout in Fez, and the Riad Romance in Marrakesh. The staff were warm and helpful. They went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and their location in the medina let us explore easily on our own. The drive was spectacular. Morocco north of the mountains was like traveling through wine country (because it is) and then quickly once you descend south of the Atlas mountains you were in areas as spectacular as the 4 corners area of the US southwest. Everywhere we encountered really nice people. There were a few snags with our trip that could easily be corrected. The three couples arrived on three different flights and had to be picked up at different times. There was some confusion that resulted in two of the couples not being picked up, so we took taxis and were reimbursed by the company. Also we were given the wrong cellphone number for our guide. We had arranged to pay by credit card and they gave our guide a payment machine that was set to dynamic currency conversion which added an extra 3.5% to our payment. There was no way of overriding it. Mr.Boujouija eventually waived the company’s 3% credit card fee resulting in Around Morocco losing 3% and us losing ½ percent. The problems we had were small compared to the wonderful trip we had exploring the country with Hicham and Around Morocco. I highly recommend using them for a tour.
