Trip Report Beautiful Morocco Sep/15

Jump to last reply

As most of you know I was planning this trip at the last minute, even when I landed in Morocco!
I can't tell you how much I value all the advice and help I have received from all of you when planning my trips and I thank you all.
I decided to fly into Fes and book the first three days by myself, the rest I booked through Your Morocco Tour as they were willing to work with me at the last minute. They had some challenges with festivals and hotels being booked but it all came together and Jana was great and kept in contact with me throughout the tour.
INTRIGUING FES
We arrived in Fes and the Riad had arranged a driver to meet us at the airport. We drove for awhile and the driver stopped in a parking lot where a man with a cart waited to take our luggage. Our trip has started and I am excited! We entered a narrow alleyway with cobblestone floors, on either side there were people selling things from beautiful lanterns to sacks of spices. We followed along through the winding alleys until we came to a beautifully carved door. When we were let in it was like entering a secret garden! We had come into a courtyard and all we could hear was the trickling of the fountain and the sounds of the birds, it was so peaceful. We were greeted by the owner of Riad Salama, Michel with mint tea, our first of many and biscuits. Our room was lovely. Because it was late we had a delicious dinner there.
This is my first trip report so I hope I don't make it too long or too detailed.
