Trip Report Morocco in May

Jump to last reply

I have always read the postings on this site, but never felt the need to participate until now. Just back from a fabulous adventure in Morocco. Thomas Hollowell of Journey Beyond helped me plan my itinerary and delivered more than promised. But the best thing he did for us was engage our driver/guide, Naim Souhel. He guided us from Casablanca to Marrakech showing us all the wonderful sites, mountains, desert, and people along the way. I cannot say enough how wonderful he was to us and hope that many of you will contact me for his contact information. So to begin:

Day One, Casablanca: Only overnight here. Stayed at the over-the-top wonderful Hyatt Regency. A hotel driver picked us up and was all professional and polite until a small car driven by a young woman just stopped in the road in front of us, blocking our progress. She was engaged in conversation with her passenger, paying no attention to the traffic lining up behind her. Finally, our driver blew the horn just once. She immediately responded with an obscene gesture to him. Wow did he lose it! Went into a rant of "See this! This is why women should not be allowed to drive!" Walked over to the Medina; not worth the walk compared to Medinas in Fes and Marrakech. Mostly modern merchandise. Only place in Morocco that I did not feel completely comfortable and welcome. Greeted in the morning by our driver, Naim, to begin our exploration of this wonderful country.
