The review would have been a 10 if we hadn't spent so much time stopping to shop. In Fes we were taken in leather, weaving, and other "artisanal" shops. Seemed like an attempt to get as many sales commissions as possible. Don't remember this much shopping on other trips. Morocco has a lot to offer....museums and sites that weren't touched upon. Food options weren't great, although we as a couple skipped dinner, the times we ate with the group the food was weak.
The driver and his assistant were really great.

We started in Fes on a cloudy & cold February day. A few days later we were walking in a delightful valley then, a few days later, throwing snowballs in the High Atlas mountains. Then, a few days later still, sitting on a sand dune basking in the heat of the Sahara. After that came the coast and, for total contrast, Marrakesh. What an amazing country! To be able to see so much in just 2 weeks was fantastic.Very pleasant tour leader who created a good atmosphere.

Essaouira - Location of Riad Mimouna was wonderful, so close to the sea, waves bashing up against walls. Enjoyed relaxing there on the roof top terrace.
Some of the meals we ate were in the hotels ( even though our guide did not recommend them) especially at Dar Kamar Quarzazate. The food in the local restaurants was very bland and disappointing.

The beautiful Rihad in Fes was a wonderful way to begin the holiday. Enjoying the night sky with zero light pollution was an unforgettable experience.

Tips:
1. opt out of the Marrakesh 'orientation tour'. The palace we visited was not worth the visit, particularly after staying in the Rihad in Fes, which was an example of the same kind of building - only far superior and furnished. It was also exhausting walking in the afternoon heat at the end of the holiday, when we had already seen lots of mosques and souks. Take the time to potter around yourself.
2. be aware that the products on sale at the co-operatives you visit (ceramic, rose oil products, argan oil) sell items at a very inflated price compared to the markets.
3. don't be afraid to eat at 'public' restaurants. Our favourite meal was in a 'public' restaurant at the Blue Gate, Fes. Use your common sense.

Loved the premium accommodation choices. Really enjoyed the night in the desert camp. Tip: travel as light as you can.

Take a torch and carry it at night as the lighting was poor in several places.
