Morocco is a fascinating country. The trip organized by Come to the Sahara made the visit easy for our family. Elaine answered our many questions when planning and before departure. Having an experienced driver for the entire trip was definitely the way to see the country and made getting into the cities stress-free. All our accommodations booked for us were comfortable. In 8 days we were able to see Casablanca, Rabat, Chefchaouen, Fes and Marrakesh. This also included city guides and hiking guides in the Rif and Atlas Mountains. We left with memories and a desire to return to see the rest of the country. Thank you to Elaine for the bookings and our driver Yaseen in Morocco for a successful trip.

I had the opportunity to take a custom tour with Come to the Sahara in October. Elaine put together an adventure-filled agenda covering Fes, Marrakech and Essaouira with amazing riads in each location. Our driver Imad was so accommodating and offered additional suggestions to enhance the trip including a diversion to Casablanca to see the remarkable mosque. He also took us to a tannery in Fes where I purchased a couple beautiful items to bring home.
Additional highlights:
- the Medina in Marrakech including catching a glimpse at the snake charmers (though tragic to see the chained monkeys)
- stopping to meet Nemo the camel and having a quick ride
- winery visit near Essaouira
- Fes medina which was epically intricate and had so many different treasures of Morocco from rugs, spices, shoes, leather, etc. Our tour guide took us to a delicious little local place for lunch and Moroccan tea.
- wonderful restaurants with authentic Moroccan meals
- cooking class in Essaouira
- tour of Fez blue art pottery
So many great memories! Thank you Elaine and Imad!

We recently visited Morocco and booked our trip with Come to the Sahara. Prior to the trip, Elaine helped us plan our itinerary and customized it based on our interests and time availability. She answered our MANY questions and ensured we were ready to hit the ground running (e.g., she provided us with instructions on SIM cards, currency exchange, local customs—all those little details that can become snags if you have to navigate them on your own). In Morocco, our tour guide and driver, Imad, took care of our every need and was so enjoyable to be with. He is incredibly careful, professional and is just a delight. As for the experience itself, the beauty of Morocco’s people, culture and land is awe-inspiring. I can’t recommend Morocco as a travel destination AND employing Come to the Sahara highly enough.

Our trip to Morocco was wonderful and all the logistics were managed by the local business partner, Imad. Elaine (owner based in Canada) was excellent to deal with, easy to communicate with and provided us with a tour package based on the input from our group of 4 adults. (We needed a custom itinerary because of specific arrival and departure dates) Imad (in Morocco) was wonderful at making sure our accommodations were as expected butflexible if we needed to make a slight adjustment. He was punctual and easy to deal with. The RIADs (hotels0 that were booked for us (in Marrakech, Fes & Rabat) were 4 stars, with clean rooms and good breakfasts. We also attended a cooking school and had personalized tours in Marrakech and Fes, both with wonderful guides that Imad contacted. I would highly recommend dealing with this tour company who specializes in Morocco tours. You will be so amazed by the sights, the sounds, the smells and the food of Morocco. The people were so friendly and welcoming to tourists, they loved showing us their country.

Fantastic week with great driving by Imad! Great flexibility in stopping and changing course at our discretion. Great arrangements for accommodations and suggestions for dining, sightseeing etc. Amazing guide, Hakim, in Fes, who took us to incredible places with historical context:)

We travelled around for a week with Imad taking us to different locations. It has been very well organized and we have seen everything plus more that we wanted to see. Imad is an experienced and great driver so would recommend going with him. He also has great recommendations for local food that is safe to eat for tourists.

We love that you refer to this as your "first trip" to Morocco! Now that you've had a little taste, we hope you'll come back and take a big bite! You were able to see many of the highlights in the week that you had; perhaps you already have thoughts about where you would spend more time on another visit. If so, you know we'd love to have you back. We're here anytime you want to plan your next Morocco adventure!

This is not a review of Morocco ; to review of our driver, Imad. Everyone knows how beautiful Morocco is but who knows how thoughtful and accommodating Imad could be? One of our party was taking a medication that had uncomfortable side effects, and Imad was always ready to find a cool place to park or a café to get a cool drink or a way to change our schedule slightly so that she could rest when needed. The distances in Morocco are long, but Imad usually had something interesting to say along the way to bring things into perspective. he also helped us find merchants where we could buy trinkets to remind us of our trip or an ATM or a pharmacy, or whatever we needed. We left Morocco having made a friend.
