Testimonials 


The trip to Morocco was great. I was impressed with the hotels that were part of the tour. We did tons of shopping and tons a lot of pics. Safety wasn't a concern while on the tour however, off the tour I can see the need to keep alert of your surroundings and valuables. The markets are bustling, the sites were amazing, and the tour operators were great. Overall it was a fantastic trip. Thank you once again for all your help in making this trip so special.
