My family just returned from a two-week tour of Morocco arranged by Alecia and Travel Exploration. The trip was an incredible experience for our whole family (we have 2 daughters ages 11 and 12), thanks to Alecia of Travel Exploration and our driver Hossaine. From our first contact with Alecia we were impressed. She always responded to our questions and concerns and was very informed about the attractions and hotels throughout the country. I felt confident we chose the right private tour agency from the start (Alecia and Travel Exploration deserve all the rave reviews on Trip Advisor). The country of Morocco is beautiful and fascinating, the people very open and friendly. It is a great destination for a family with older children. A very special part of our experience was meeting the Moroccan people and having the chance to share conversation and tea with them thanks to the translations from our Berber driver Hossaine. We are certain we would have missed a lot of the experience if it had not been for him and these local stops and encounters. We visited Marrakesh, the High Atlas, Dades Valley, Skoura, Dra Valley, the Sahara (Erg Chebbi), Fes, Meknes, Volubilis, and Essaouira. All were beautiful but the unanimous highlight was the visit to the Sahara, including a camel ride to our private tent camp, watching the sunset, eating a delicious dinner by the campfire, listening to Gnoa musicians and waking up to watch the sun rise over the dunes (Travel Exploration offers a luxury tent option which we highly recommend). Another memorable activity was the cooking class in Essaouira. We were very happy with the hotel and restaurant recommendations, as well as the informative guides provided by Travel Exploration. We are certain we would not have had the same experience if we had arranged the trip on our own (which we usually do). Thank you Travel Exploration for a trip we will never forget!
