  1. tony guero

    On the move, but you see a lot on this tour. Our leader was superb�Hamid was personable, knowledgeable, flexible and receptive to suggestions. Hotels was very confortable the potential size of a tour group. We were only 8 travelers, which was great in the van and for moving around easily when together. Having few meals included gave flexibility for those who wanted some independent time and an opportunity in urban areas to stray from the traditional Morocco menu. I feel like I saw most of the top spots and got a feel for the people in both urban and rural settings. All in all satisfied and would travel again with Morocco Travel Guide.
