Corona Del Mar, CA
- This was our first Explore trip and it was excellent. We liked the variety of things saw....cities, souks, medinas, gorgeous scenery. We learned a lot. One addition would be to have a stay in a ryad along the way. We did love staying in the medina, especially in Essaouira.
Our guide was amazing, going out of his way to make us all feel like guests in Morocco, in the Berber tradition, not just tourists. He was very well informed, knowledgeable and organized with handouts, including city maps, phrases to help us, and full of information about the culture, history and current conditions in Morocco. He was honest and open about the politics and religion. His choice of city guides and how he handled everything was exemplary...he really knew where to stop and gave us good choices for food and activities in our free time. Mostly he went above and beyond to make sure everyone was ok during the trip. He was calm, easy going and very competent. Great contacts everywhere. He would be one reason I'd book another trip on Explore if he is an example of the caliber of guides you employ.
