    1. MPT@

      I can’t say enough good things about this tour company. Malika worked with another member of our group to organize the absolute best experience. She was helpful, professional and quick to respond to any of our concerns or suggestions.

      We had such an amazing adventure in Morocco. Yes, we travelled with our dear friends which made it an excellent experience out of the gate, but I believe what made this trip magical was that everything was taken care of, every detail was attended to. Our Riads and Dars were top notch, the food was excellent, the itinerary was varied and we truly got to see the “real Morocco”.

      And the biggest part of the success recipe was Khalid. We had read fabulous reviews about him and we were not disappointed, in fact, our expectations were exceeded. We were very thrilled to get Khalid as our tour guide/driver (as he often did double duty). I would give 5 stars for the tour, but 6 stars if I could because of Khalid. I really don’t know how he did it. He answered all our questions, he explained the surrounding area as we drove through it, he shared his child hood experiences, he referred us to excellent restaurants (so we wouldn’t get sick at, and that were reasonably priced) if the meal wasn’t included, he arranged our city guides who were incredible, we had experiences that we wouldn’t have had otherwise like trying prickly pear, dates from the market, camel burgers, how to make traditional tea, how to wrap our head scarves in the desert, took us to a local Hammam for an authentic local experience, helped us find wine in a basically “dry” country and on and on.

      If you are going to Morocco, you will miss so much if you attempt to do it on your own. And, if you are looking for the best experience you can possibly have, then hire Moroccan Premium Tours.

      Thank you Khalid for helping us creating magical moments that we will cherish forever. We will not forget you!!!
