Wonderful 3 week tour in Morocco with Hassan and Bouaouina Tours
My sister and I did a 3 week tour with Bouaouina Tours with Hassan as our private guide throughout. All we had to do was show up at the airport. Hassan handled everything else.
That included booking riads in the medinas, our meals, transportation and everything he booked was to our satisfaction. We had a very relaxing and stress free tour with Hassan right from our initial inquiries to the very end of our tour.
We toured from Casablanca to Rabat, Meknes, Volubilis and Fez and then made our way east towards the desert where we rode camels in to an overnight camp…simply fabulous adventure. Then we made our way to Marrakech and Essaouira and northerly up the coast to Asilah and Tangier. Then we spent a couple of wonderful days in Chefchouen before making our way back to Casablanca and then back home.
Hassan is multilingual, very sociable, and of course, very knowledgeable about his country. The guides he supplied for tours of Fez, Volubilus, Marrakech, and the Ourika valley were very good as well, Kamal was particularly good and seemed to know everything about Fez as well as everyone in the souks of Fez. Hassan even arranged for a cooking class for us while we were in Marrakech. Hassan is also very flexible. Our tour had not included a tour of the great mosque in Casablanca but when we expressed interest to tour the mosque, he arranged that for us as well. Hassan also matches the pace of his tours to the people in his tours.
A day that was particularly special for us was while in Bhalil, the town where Hassan lives. He took us through the market and some cave homes and then we went to his home where we met his wife Luba, his mother and father and nephew. His mother also prepared a very nice lunch for us. Luba toured with us for a week and we had a great time as a foursome.
My sister and I feel like we have made a life long friend and we definitely recommend Hassan and Bouaouina Tours for your tour of Morocco.
