Super service!

Wij zouden afgelopen mei een excursie gaan maken met Camel Excursions Morocco en hadden in overleg met Ismael een mooie tocht bedacht waarbij wij zelf een keuze hadden in verschillende accomodaties. Vanwege het Corona virus ging heel Marokko helaas op slot en vooralsnog ziet het er niet naar uit dat wij dit land op de korte termijn kunnen gaan bezoeken. Ismael reageerde direct op mijn gestuurde mails met vragen en dacht mee over mogelijke oplossingen. Omdat een vakantie naar Marokko er voorlopig niet in lijkt te zitten heb ik gisteren gevraagd of het mogelijk is dat ik mijn aanbetaling teruggestort krijg.

Vandaag is deze teruggestort terwijl het bedrijf dit niet verplicht was. Wat een super service voor een bedrijf dat het nu al ruim een half jaar zeer moeilijk zal hebben omdat het toerisme geheel stil is komen te vallen! Als het mogelijk is om weer naar Marokko te gaan zullen wij zeker een tour boeken bij dit bedrijf.

A trip to the Sahara desert that I will never forget

This is an absolutely amazing company to use when traveling through Morocco.
Everything is very well organized and the communication with Ismael from the start was top standard.
It was incredibly relaxing to travel through the country on our private tour. Our guide Yousef was lovely and seemed to know everyone in Morocco! (No joke)
The camels/Sahara and the milk way campsite were a highlight. How absolutely beautiful. We also had fun attempting to play the drums and sharing riddles with our Berber friends at the campsite.
We stayed at Dar Blue hotel on our second night and it was absolutely stunning. What a beautiful building. Also the food there was delicious!
Would definitely recommend this trip to anyone wanting an easy yet amazing trip through Morocco.
Thanks, guys for the fantastic memories. 🙂 <3
Can't wait to go back, inshallah. 😉
