My sister and I recently traveled to Morocco with Journey Beyond Travel. We both are experienced travelers, but this was an experience to put at the top of the list. First, the trip itself was wonderful—a beautifully planned itinerary, a driver/guide (Kamal) who was perfect in every respect, great lodging and food, on and on. And then, when the coronavirus situation exploded…we were unbelievably lucky to be on the receiving end of help from Lucas Peters, owner of Journey Beyond Travel. The US initially said even citizens were not allowed back, though they had to change that stance. But Morocco shut off all incoming and outgoing travel. Lucas’ efforts to find “escape” options for us (the US government was “missing in action”)—and to communicate them as promptly and accurately as possible—were invaluable. I cannot imagine being in better hands. I know that he did not know for sure what would happen when he sent us to the airport on a few minutes’ notice, but he clearly communicated the pros and cons of taking that option—and boy, are we glad we took it. The grace and professionalism he showed us during a time when he was being pulled from all sides were beyond anything we could have expected. I would recommend this company and Lucas without reservation.

A great trip organised by JBT. Thomas was terrific in organising for us. Hamid our driver, what a great fellow, he became a friend, was very helpful when Maree got sick, We miss him. Mohammed was wonderful walking us thru Marrakesh, Tata was very funny and engaging we felt very welcome with him. Niam showed us around Fez and was great. Fatima in Chefchaouen walked us around and was very friendly and open and knowledgeable. People are the making of a business and these people are truly wonderful we particularly enjoyed just chatting. Our trip was during Ramadan, I would have loved to have conversed over food. Hamid dropped us at Tangier airport and it was sad to leave . Truly wonderful guides and thankyou - Bruce and Maree

This isn't a review of Journey Beyond Travel but Tata Abdelkarim, one of the guides of this travel agency, who we happened to meet on the road to Merzouga and who showed us the true kindness and soul of Morocco. My partner and I had a little rest on a parking spot overlooking a palmery where Tata was waiting for two girls for a tour. He came over to us and we started talking cautiously. Sensing that after Fes we were a bit suspicious of strangers, it didn't take him long to fetch a guide book from his car in which he was mentioned, also showing us official certificates of him being a tour guide, so we could rest assured he wouldn't be one of those faux guides wanting to rip us off. And then we really started to talk, we told him about our experiences in Morocco this far, the country, the people, that we hadn't booked any accommodation for this night, but wanted to see the desert, future plans in Morocco, etc. And then it happened: He took us under his wings. And in all honesty, this one afternoon and night made the whole trip to Morocco worth everything. He invited us to his house, showing us the wonderful hospitality of Morocco, organized a night in the desert for us in an enchanted camp and we spent the most amazing evening at a bonfire surrounded by a lovely lot of travellers and locals with drums and a sky full of stars. I cannot put it in words how surprising this act of kindness was for us and he alone in some way restored faith in humanity for us. It's such a shame that we didn't know about Journey Beyond Borders before, because in hindsight, we would probably have booked our entire trip with this company. If we ever travel to Morocco again, we certainly will and even though not knowing the company itself, if all guides are like Tata, I just recommend them to everybody who plans to visit this country. THANK YOU!

We recently visited Morocco on a trip organized by Journey Beyond Travel. Everything on our three week road trip, from the excellent itinerary to the selection of accommodations and activities, was outstanding! We saw many amazing things, experienced the friendly hospitality of many generous Moroccans, ate fabulous meals and learned so much about this wonderful, diverse melting-pot of a country, its people, history, culture and religion. Our wonderful, thoughtful and knowledgeable driver, Redouane Naji, took excellent care of us and our experiences in that wonderful country were enhanced immeasurably by his care, kindness and excellent companionship.

Just returned from a cultural experience in Morocco that was arranged by JBT. Though I will share some words about the experience one should know that there are no English words to properly describe our experience...everything and I do mean everything exceeded expectations!!! Our experience really began with an hour long conference call with Thomas who sought to understand what we wanted to do, what we wanted to experience. From there we exchanged some emails to massage our journey and before we knew it it was time to go. Our driver, Hamid, truly became a friend during the 8 days we were with him, the days we were learning from him and drinking in the sites and sounds of this amazing country. The guides we had (especially Mohammed in Marrakesh) never presented a standard speech but rather shared with us their Morocco via conversations. Thomas and his team gave us a real experience....provided us with a glimpse into Morocco "behind the scenes"...provided us an experience that will vividly live in our minds for many years to come. If you would ask me to summarize our journey with JBT, I would be hard pressed to find the words. Let me try this...the experience was one that far exceeded expectations and allowed us to encounter this amazing country via all its smells, sights and sounds! We'1ve not been back yet a week but are already considering where next to growth JBT
