Morocco – Fabulous Trip ! My wife and I traveled with two other close couples to Morocco this past May and the trip was nothing less than spectacular and it was because of the excellent travel planner Alecia Cohen from Morocco Travel Exploration. It was a 14-day cultural, culinary, and geographic-packed adventure that covered a significant part of the country, its history, people, and the diversity of the landscape that makes up Morocco. While our tour covered both Islamic and Jewish sites, the cities of Casablanca – don’t forget Ric’s Café -, Rabat – where we stayed at the gorgeous Villa Mandarine, a Riad of the first class as was all our hotels and Riads, The visits to the Mellahs of each city and the Kasbahs [ancient forts] blending with the modern parts of Casablanca, Rabat, Fes, and Marrakech served to underscore the developments and progress made with the current and recent past Kings. The luxury accommodations of the Sahara Desert of Chez Madu,in Merzouga was not like any tent any Bedouin has ever lived in. The L’MaLodge in Skoura, is a guest house of inspired beauty and simple elegance with fragrant gardens and animal life. But what made this trip really special were the people we met starting and ending with our driver and daily guide, Hossaine who was beyond the best driver [needed to be in the country] and would and could do anything we needed and sought to provide the best trip possible. The lunch with his family at their home was a highlight of the trip especially meeting his adorable nieces and nephews as well as his mother and aunts and uncles. The experience of a real Moroccan home, food and hospitality was an incredible experience and an eye into the life of a Moroccan family. The geographic diversity of the country surprised and disabused us of our expectations of Morocco, while there are desert areas, the presence of lush forest and valleys of green are there to contrast the sands and rock of the Sahara. The design and flow of this trip was excellent and the opportunity to sample and buy the quality goods of the country was reasonable and appreciated. To the success of this trip, we thank Alecia and Hossaine. We highly recommend Alecia and her organization when we want to visit Morocco – a most wonderful country and people.

My husband and I and four of our friends have recently returned from an amazing 2 week experience in Morocco personalized for us by Alecia Cohen. We were very pleased with our accommodations at several distinctive Riads. Our driver and guides became one with our group, freely discussing topics, such as, history, geography, economy, and family life in this very diverse country. During our adventure we were able to experience the seaside, cosmopolitan cities of Casablanca and Rabat, the switchbacks and gorges of the high Atlas Mountains, sunrise in the desert, the incredible Medinas of Fes, Meknes and Marakech, and the lush valleys where roses, honey bees, pomegranate, and dates are cultivated. One of the highlights for our group was an afternoon spent in the home of a Berber family where we shared a delicious lunch and sampled Berber hospitality first hand. And, let’s not forget the yummy food and wonderful shopping opportunities!

Alecia and travel explorations did an amazing job on our trip! We said what we wanted to do and she customized everything for us. We stayed in beautiful places and ate delicious food. My vegan daughter was completely taken care of as well. My luggage was lost at the airport and Alecia even bought me clothes and toiletries and had them delivered to me!! She also gave me some good counseling on getting me in the acceptance phase that my luggage was not coming back until the end of the trip— but we had the best time despite that hiccup. Hossaine the driver was the nicest person and we got to meet his family which was really special. Alecia planned a varied itinerary from riding camels and 4 wheelers in the desert to staying in a luxury riad and sightseeing in Marrakech. Hossaine even helped us make dinner reservations and translated for us when we went shopping. I would highly recommend traveling with Alecia, you will be in very good hands and have the trip of a lifetime.

Alecia Cohen of Travel Exploration Morocco created a beautiful custom itinerary for my girlfriend and I as a pre-trip before a work conference we had in Marrakech. We had 4 nights of exploration with an amazing private driver/guide, Sabir and a wonderful guide, Hakim, for 2 days in the Fez medina sightseeing, shopping, eating and exploring this well preserved 14th century city. Alecia arranged for a Hammam/Spa experience for us, and sightseeing in multiple cities as well as a tour of ancient Roman Ruins. After Morocco being shut down for 2 years due to Covid, the country welcomed us with open arms and a gracious heart. Alecia was available to answer our many questions and make wonderful suggestions and accommodations. We loved the Riad Fes in Fez and highly recommend a stay there for sure. We explored many sights and felt very safe during our travels through Morocco. I can not wait to go back!

Alecia Cohen of Travel Exploration Morocco was recommended to my friend and me for travel through Morocco with a private driver. She designed a tour for us that was remarkable! We spoke to her about our desires - places, people and food - and got a feel for what would work. She is able to plan for any budget. Alecia is a New Yorker who married a Berber gentleman and so she has a large wonderful family in the High Atlas Mountains who we spent a half day with cooking, chatting and eating - for me this was the highlight. Although awkward because of language, it's the memory I keep returning to. We traveled the circle from Casablanca, Rabat, Fes, Sahara, Atlas Mountains, Marrakech and Essaouira. We stayed in lovely riads, took tours with local guides, had a couple cooking classes, visited many UNESCO sites and an great winery. We were very appreciative of our wonderful driver Mustapha - he was very educated, kind and maintained our safety at every step. Traveling during the pandemic presented challenges but Alecia and Mustapha ensured our safety while traveling and arranged for the Covid-19 test with a local clinic for our flight home. I highly recommend this tour company to anyone wanting a spectacular visit to Morocco.
