TOUR REVIEWS

The service was generally prompt and courteous with many details provided for the questions. The service was very good!
This tour program was excellent in value for the price. I would recommend to all who are interested in touring these countries. Tour guide and other staff were all friendly and responsible. Two thumbs up!

Customer service was excellent. Every time I sent an email, I received a response very quickly. I took a trip last year and had to continually contact the company for responses, so getting detailed answers quickly was great and appreciated. In all honesty, not getting ignored after paying is a sign of a great company that cares about their client.
I enjoyed the trip. Only issue is that the tour guide changed a part of the trip because he didn't want us to do something. Not the fault of encounters. But otherwise the trip was great. I would like to say that travelling from Fez to Marrakech should be on a plane or train. Driving was too long and wasted a day.

Good communication, questions answered promptly, documents in order. Very helpful.
Wonderful trip. Quality accommodation especially given the lower cost of the adventure. Well paced, very well taken care of by all staff. Amazing tour leader, Waleed Khamouna, PhD in Egyptology ... couldn't ask for more. Felt very secure the entire trip.

The transactions and communications were all very smooth. Except that the tme i reached Morocco and tried to call the guide that was originally assigned were to no avail. The handphone number provided by admin were not correct. Anyway the guide who met us, Idris, was splendid throughout the trip! He made our trip an exciting one!
Mersmerised by the beauty of Morroccan history and landscape! All captured through my lenses and shared to all my friends and circle. Now, more want to experience the wonderful journey I made through the deserts and mountains of Morocco and the Moroccan people.

The booking process was easy and simple
My only complaint was that the first hotel we stayed at in Jordan, the JAD Hotel was not the hotel in the itinerary. It was supposed to be the Imperial Palace, which looked like a substantially better hotel
