We found Paleo Morocco Tours on different forums and contacted them via their website. He is locally-owned and operated by Hmad. Hmad immediately responded to our questions regarding an ideal itinerary. My husband and I only had a week and wanted to focus on Marrakesh and Ourika Valley, a beautiful view and nature. Within a day or two, Hmad came back to us with a preliminary itinerary including airport pick up, transportation between towns, accommodations, and local guides.
In first day, we were cordially greeted by Hmad at the Casablanca airport. He was our driver, tour director and a nice friend for the duration of the week, Hmad was thoroughly knowledgeable about every historic and cultural aspect of his society. He is also fluent in 4 languages including French and English. Hmad arranged local guides for us in Marrakesh and Fes. Each guide gave us an excellent walking tour of the medina with an overview of their rich history.
We fell in love with Moroccan cuisine – the flavorful spices, the tangy lemon rinds, fragrant olive oils, and the freshly baked bread will never be forgotten. Our favorite dishes were: Chicken Tagine, Harira soup, Couscous and Curry Chicken Pastilla. Our favorite drinks were Mint Tea, Casablanca Beer and Volubilia Gris, a dry, pale rose.
But the most enduring highlight of our trip were the goats in the argan tree on our route to Essaouira – an incredible site to see! Thank you Hmad as you patiently waited for us while we snapped away.
Overall, we were impressed with Paleo Morocco Tours for their professionalism, their efficiency, great service and their friendliness. They made our experience hassle-free. We feel fortunate to have found them. We’ll be back to see the rest of the Morocco!
I recommend this company to any one planning to travel to Morocco.
