MOROCCO PRIVATE TOUR INTO THE PAST

We were so lucky to find Gateway2Morocco online. They were efficient after I made a mistake with the booking. They also sent us a guide that by far surpassed our expectations.
WHAT A MAN!!!
He is knowledgeable and very gentle, friendly and efficient. We loved spending the day with him while he shared his knowledge of life in Morocco. His love for the country is infections.
The tour is well managed. And we got more than we were expecting by being taken to places on route.
Morocco has crept into my blood.

Great Moroccan Adventure

The tour was perfect and highly recommend it. Our guide, Abdul Aouragh, was the best. His lighthearted nature made a four day road trip pleasant and fun… What follows is a more detailed, blog-like account of why one would want to go on a trip like this and what we did/found…


This was my wife’s and my second trip to Morocco and the perfect segue from our initial visit. We came back here already possessing a language with which to describe Morocco, thus we had fairly high expectations. They were exceeded. Three themes marked this trek: Landscape, Berbers, architecture.
We are not the sort of traveler who likes extravagant/luxurious amenities. We go more for a rich, earthy-organic experience; sunrises in the Dades Valley versus 5 star, Four Seasons-like amenities/pampering. For those who do like that style of travel, Morocco definitely has that in spades. It’s just not our thing. This trip nailed exactly what we were looking for. It was just the two of us, the open countryside, and our driver, Abdul Aouragh. I mention his name because he made the journey that much more rewarding. When we return to Morocco, we will be asking for him again. I strongly recommend him for those seeking a driver who is lighthearted, unpretentious, flexible and whose knowledge of Morocco approaches that of an officially designated guide. In retrospect, my nonstop questions to him now seem like those of a four-year-old incessantly barraging his parents on all topics, but it speaks volumes of the camaraderie we had with him travelling 4 days together.
The first day went from Marrakech to the Dades Valley. This was a classic road trip through breathtaking scenery. The government is improving the road to near-interstate quality in many places. The excursion through the High Atlas Mountains was its own geology course. Every turn yielded a new example of plate tectonics at work. After the hubbub of Marrakech, it was also a subtle introduction to the hard and ancient lives of the Amazigh (Berber) – a recurring theme alongside the changing landscape. The vast majority of the 30+million Moroccans are of Berber descent, and their nomadic identity not only still continues but becomes more and more apparent the further one travels into the countryside. In land which must be unbearable for at least half the year, shepherds and their families, occasionally accompanied by camels, still populate the old caravan routes of their ancestors.
If blindfolded and dropped here, one could almost think they were in Sedona, AZ, New Mexico or some of the drier stretches of Utah. For artists, this trip will forever define your warm color palette. Just like Eskimos having 100 words for “ice”, you will come away from here feeling the same way about the reddish colors of earth in the landscape. Each valley and gorge as uniquely spectacular as the one before it.
Further east, the land becomes progressively drier and flatter. The prevalence of green glaze on the local pottery indicates the presence of silver; the numerous roadside stands testimony to the abundance of trilobite and ammonite fossils. The reward for our long roadtrip… the dunes of Erg Chebbi at Merzouga, and a well-timed, near-sunset camel ride to our camp. The extent of our eastward trek ends here just miles short of the Algerian border. After spending time watching the scenery change along our way, and with these hypnotic sand dunes … I now get why T. E. Lawrence spent so much time writing about the landscape in The Seven Pillars of Wisdom. Campfires with songs led by Berbers, nights here are stunning. Recommend doing this trip so as to wind up here with as near a new moon as possible. The sheer amount of stars one can see when no other light source competes with the Milky Way is otherworldly.
& a silence…
like you have never heard…
Coming back west one goes through the Draa Valley, with scenery so remarkable, the area is given the name “the Hollywood of Africa”. Dozens of movies have been filmed in places like Ouarzazate, Ait Benhaddou along with the surrounding mountain passes and open plains. Movie studios line the road approaching Ouarzazate. UNESCO has designated Ait Benhaddou a World Heritage Site.
The last day from Ouarzazate to Marrakech went back over the High Atlas. A stop at Telouet could easily be overlooked but is a must see. The Kasbah of Pasha Glaouie is a poignant tale of late Moroccan history and the centerpiece of the trek’s architectural tour. Here, in a nondescript surrounding exists an oasis of hidden Zellij tilework and astounding naht – the uniquely Moroccan, delicately hand-cut ornamental plasterwork. That this structure is only partially shielded from the elements, with much of it slipping slowly towards the sad fate of many now-familiar kasbahs all over Morocco, reminds one that time and beauty are both fleeting.

There is an abundance here which is ancient, contemplative and mostly silent. Here, expect to be stirred more by the smell of frankincense, the patterns found in Berber weaving, the handiwork of Almoravid and Almohad builders, or the dune-like undulations of Arabic calligraphy.

GREAT 2 WEEK PRIVATE TOUR ACROSS MOROCCO

My friend and I wanted to see Casablanca, Rabat, Fes, Volubilis, the Sahara, Dades Gorge, Todgha Gorge, Ourzazate, Essaouira, Marrakech. No package tour hit all of these exactly and spent the right amount of time in each without a few long days in a bus, so we booked a private 2 week tour. It was great.

We had a driver/guide, supplemented by local guides in areas like Volubilis and Fes, or site guides at Mosque Hassan II in Casablanca. It was the perfect mix of guiding vs. having alone time to walk around/enjoy the sites and take photos or shop. The Riads and hotels were lovely, as were the recommended or included restaurants.

Our guide/driver was great – treated us like world travelers, unlike guides in many countries who are afraid for you to go anywhere without them. Booking the tour was quite easy via email, and they were happy to provide advice when we couldn’t decide between destinations. The only thing to prepare for is to pay 100% via paypal if you’re uncomfortable carrying cash to pay the balance upon arrival in Morocco. We had a few minor hiccups along the way not due to the fault of G2M, but they sorted them out immediately so our trip was not affected.

I would highly recommend using G2M for booking private tours ; they listen to what you want, how you like to spend your time, and focus guides/highway breaks between destinations on your areas of interest.

WONDERFUL 10 DAY MOROCCO TOUR

We just got back from a great 10-day tour of Morocco with G2M. Brahim in Canada was extremely responsive and always helpful and flexible, which made planning the tour extremely easy. Once we arrived, our guide was terrific and the entire trip went smoothly. I can highly recommend the company for being honest and well-connected in Morocco. We always felt safe and well taken care of. I would definitely recommend both the country and the company!

I would have a few suggestions for others:

We didn’t realize that we were traveling during Ramadan, which would have been good to know in advance but turned out to be a blessing I think. Many of the busy places were quieter during the day and it was easy to work with the typical evening schedule of the holiday.
We didn’t have time to do enough research before each day, but it would have been nice to be able to read up on the next day’s sites beforehand. This could be something that G2M could help to prepare maybe…many times we didn’t fully understand the significance of what we were seeing until we got there.

I wouldn’t have given up going to the desert or sleeping in the Berber camp for anything, but be aware the the drive those days can be long and tiring. The benefit is that you really feel like you have seen the country…but by the end of the ten days, we were exhausted.

We started in Casablanca and ended in Marrakesh, which I think is a great way to do it. But I would consider doing it in the other direction too. Marrakesh is a better introduction to the country I think than Casablanca and Rabat, there is a wonderful Berber Museum in Marrakesh that I wish I had been to before going to the dessert and I think seeing Fez (a highlight) after Marrakesh may be nice.

WONDERFUL MOROCCO TRIP

We had a wonderful trip to Morocco in April 2017. The weather was great and tolerable. We had booked a private tour with our great driver Jamal. He made it great and comfortable for us. He would stop anytime we wanted. I recommend him to anyone!
The price was as is. No rip offs. They driver/guides at Gateway 2 Morocco were very knowledgeable. The memories are engraved in our mind and hearts. Thank you Jamal and Brahim for this wonderful trip!

INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE IN MOROCCO

My friends and I recently got back from a tour in Morocco with this company – I don’t often leave feedback unless I was blown away or extremely disappointed, but this tour left us extremely happy and felt I should share my experience to others! They were able to accommodate any of our requests and provided us with fantastic suggestions as well.

It was extremely exotic, educational, and fun. We were right to choose high-end Riads: they were delightful, wonderfully furnished, and the staff in each one were attentive, helpful and charming. Each Riad was unique and it was clear to us that the owners were determined to make us feel welcome and comfortable. For us, the riads were an important part of the Moroccan experience, and much more enjoyable than international hotel chains. We did end up staying in hotels but they were a great selection of boutique hotels. The driver recommended and arranged for us to stay at the Tombuctoo in Merzouga rather than driving back to (and then back from) the Xaluca in Erfoud, which turned out to be a great decision. The itinerary was well balanced – not changing hotels every day, and giving us enough time to see quite a lot in the big cities (Fes, Marakesh). Everything went smoothly and there were no unpleasant incidents. Our driver was very helpful, protective and easy to talk to, although we spoke French most of the time as he was more comfortable in that language. He drove well, was courteous, and looked after us attentively.

The local guides were well informed, helpful and friendly. We were particularly pleased about being able to get close enough to the guides and the driver to be able to learn much more about Islam and its importance in Muslim life – a real education that most westerners, like myself and my friends, could benefit from these days. It left us with considerably greater respect for the people and their religion.

We were particularly interested in the interior decoration – such as carvings, mosaics etc. in the mosques, riads and mausoleums. We also really enjoyed the visit to a Berber home – it was fascinating. Also, the Djemmaa-el-Fna Square was a high-point, especially arriving in the dark in the evening, with the overwhelming vitality of the scene – the crowd, the food, the smells, sounds, lights, music and general vibrance.

The Moroccan food was excellent, but the repetitiveness of it was tiresome. In virtually every arranged meal, the menu was the same: an array of “Moroccan salad” dishes, followed by tagine and couscous, with the only variation being the occasional addition of a bastilla. These meals were individually well prepared and well presented, especially in the high-end restaurants (Yacout, Maison Bleue), but having the same menu so often was a little disappointing. We found ourselves always looking for a varety of food such as fish or European cuisine. The shopping was excellent – it was nice knowing that we were able to contirbute to the Moroccan economy, especially in the textiles sector. We would happily have missed the Fantasia production at Borj Bladi: the whole thing was like a parody, with the staff and performers clearly uninterested and unmotivated. We left as quickly as possible.

But all in all, we had a great time, despite the inevitable digestive troubles! And I took hundreds of photos, which is very unusual for me. Many thanks for your help in putting the trip together.

Great Moroccan experience

Hi Brahim,

As you might remember, I was in Egypt for two weeks after Morocco, and then we got back just in time to get ready for Passover just the week over; At this point I can sit down and write a little about my trip; Just this morning I was showing off our Morocco photos to some friends; A few points .

1. Abdoul Aouragh is a great driver and guide; He is friendly, co-operative, resourceful, looks after his guests, careful, an excellent ambassador for Morocco, cares and worries about his guests, fun to be with, easy to spend long period of time with, interested in his guests and seeks out special sites that interest them especially, has a lot of knowledge about Morocco he enjoys to share, generally a great driver and guide help. Abdoul would randomly stop at the side of roads where ever I asked him to so I could look at the local flowers and trees and geology. We visited with his mother and sister and they were very nice too and made us a nice lunch. We always felt safe with his driving, even in busy city traffic or in difficult mountain passes.

2. The first riad we stayed, was it in Rabat?, we were just so-so about it; The room was small and over-crowded with furniture, the door was short so I had to duck, it was not great; Maybe other rooms were larger, ours was a bit small. All the rest of the riads and hotels we stayed at were excellent.

3. Alysse and I super enjoyed our tour; We liked everywhere we visited; I collected meteorites and fossils, we visited a quarry, we walked barefoot on sand dunes, visited Jewish cemeteries and synagogues, drove threw beautiful mountains. It was just great.

4. The guide we had in Fez was great. The guide in Marrakesh didn’t add much either for that matter; Our guide in Volubilis was a local farmer, I am not sure he knew much about Roman history, but friendly enough and he wasn’t too bad. (I got the impression there is a bit of a guide mafia in Morocco and likely we get guides whether we want them or not.) So, we had a great tour; We are very happy with how it went; The guides and first riad were all part of this great trip. Alysse and I had a great time. Thanks for your interest.
