Attraction details
Reviewed June 16, 2012

We recently spent 14 days travelling through Morocco on the Grand Tour of Morocco with Ksour Voyages. We had a wonderful driver who took such good care of us - we stayed in beautiful riads (particularly good in Merrakech and Rabat) and also Kasbahs and 4-star hotels.
The accommodation was really first class! The selection of towns and villages we visited was well chosen and we had a very good understanding of Morocco by the time it finished. If you are thinking of going to Morocco you must consider doing your tour with Ksour Voyages - you will not be disappointed.

Dear customers,
Thank you for your comments it will help the others using the service of the trip advisor to get the information about traveling to Morocco as you may know some transportation company provide a travel management services like a licensed travel agencies but with no insurance and no LICENSE they act as a travel agencies and the clients write a great review about them. I thing the Trip adviser must stop helping this companies all the ones with no license.
Thank you again for your reviews.

Ksour Voyages is a professionally managed tour agency with a personal touch and extensive contacts throughout the country. What sets this company apart are the people who own and operate it. They really love their jobs and their native land and know Morocco from top to bottom and inside out. Mohamed, the directeur, and his team of English-speaking drivers and guides will escort you on your fabulous tour of this magical land so diverse in culture, customs, geography, architecture and gastronomy.
When we planned to visit Morocco, we wanted to see the “real” country and its local color, not the “touristy” sites. The last thing we wanted to do was to be part of a horde of tourists on a big bus with people we didn’t know and probably wouldn’t want to know, anyway. We chose Ksour Voyages to arrange a 10-day tour based on a referral from friends of friends who highly recommended them. Ksour Voyages perfectly suited the needs of our four-person tour party. They specialize in private customized tours of Morocco, with a main office in Ouarzazate and a liaison office in Denver, Colorado. They offer various suggested itineraries, and an à la carte selection method for fine tuning your tour so that you will see and do exactly what you want to experience in Morocco. You will have complete control over your accommodations; they will provide a list of suggested places to stay at each destination which run the gamut from modern hotels, gracious and well appointed riads, to private camps in the Sahara desert.
We toured the Imperial cities of Rabat, Meknes, Fez and Marrakech as well as the modern city of Casablanca (now the home of the 4th largest shopping mall in the world) and the fabulously preserved ancient Roman ruins of Volubilis. At each stop, we were accompanied by a local English-speaking guide, each certified by the Ministry of Tourism. We took a camel trek across the stunningly beautiful Erg Chebbi Dunes in the Sahara and spent the night in authentic nomad goat hair tents. This was definitely a highlight of our trip. Cameleers Echou and Barbacoa guided our camel train 1 ½ hours to the desert camp where we feasted on a delicious Moroccan tagine beneath a scintillating star-filled sky.
We also were hosted at the directeur’s family home in the high Atlas mountains where we were treated to a wonderful home cooked meal with his mother and two of his brothers. For an afternoon we experienced a way of life so different from our own. The home had a central courtyard and an adjacent courtyard with the family’s chickens, goats and cow—certainly not something you’ll see on your average commercial tour.
Mohamed could not have been more amiable or adaptable to our needs or wishes. We were able to stop along the way whenever we wished.
“There’s a billboard for a winery! Can we do a tasting of the local Gris de Gris and Boulaouane wines?”
“Oh, look there are goats in those trees! Can we stop and pet them?”
“Yes, whatever you wish,” was always the answer. Even though we usually toured from early in the morning until 5:30 to 7:00 each evening, Mohamed always made himself available for extra shopping trips or more sightseeing in the evenings. Although we chose an itinerary which involved a lot of driving, we came away feeling that we had seen most of this magnificent country.
In Fez we bought mosaic tables and mirrors, hand painted china and clay tajines. (Heavy breakables!) They were shipped back to us in the States with no problems or breakage. We even found two extra plates and a bowl in our package. Mo called to make sure we were satisfied with the delivery. We were surprised to learn that his colleague, our local guide in Fez, Mohammed “Couscous” returned to the factory and personally inspected the shipping crates to make sure that all items were accounted for and properly packed. How’s that for service?
At the end of our trip there was a glitch: When we arrived at the airport in Casablanca, we learned that Royal Air Maroc had cancelled our flight and we had been rebooked for the following day. Mohamed’s magical cell phone appeared, that web of contacts was consulted, and we shortly found ourselves on the way to a beachside hotel, three meals included, courtesy of Royal Air Maroc.
Looking back now, trying to find one thing that I would have changed about this tour, one thing that could possibly have been done or handled better, my only wish is that my camel’s saddle had stirrups. I grew up riding horses on saddles with stirrups, and although the camel saddles had something akin to handlebars, I found it very difficult to ride a camel without stirrups. Mohamed promised that when I return, he would make certain that I would be provided with a camel saddle with stirrups.
We found a tour of four to be an excellent balance of size and budget. Not too crowded, but more economical that traveling as a couple. So don’t hesitate! Grab a few friends to join you and book your trip of a lifetime with Ksour Voyages and Bisaha – “Relax and enjoy!”
