    4.0 - Good

    My friend and I had a great time on our trip and appreciated the combination of planned and personalized events. Our primary complaint is that there were a few things that were not quite as described in our pre-travel paperwork or were not explained well enough. Overall, the things I liked: great variety and selection of events. Marrakech had lots of flight options so a good place to start, Fes is an interesting and fun city, the desert stops were fascinating and a great contrast from city life. The itinerary was packed, but this is what we expected from a trip of only 1 week. Everyone we interacted with was extremely friendly and helpful. The tours they arranged were very educational. The bus transport during the desert tour was comfortable. Drivers were for the most part safe and cautious. Accommodations were very nice, although they were not heated! For anyone traveling during the colder winter months, be aware that if there is no heat inside your hotel/riad it's absolutely freezing. Communication with Tourradar before the trip was easy and prompt, and having a Whatsapp contact with the local tour company made it easy to communicate about small changes along the way (delayed flight, etc.). What I didn't like: it was not entirely clear ahead of time how the individual pieces of the trip were going to connect. Everything went smoothly, but I would have liked to know ahead of time instead of just closing my eyes and trusting that we'd figure it out. We knew that we did not have a single guide and driver the whole time, but we weren't told how we were supposed to find the drivers and guides on different days (in this case, they found us, but we didn't know that ahead of time). It would have been reassuring to know this. Also, some of the things that we had scheduled on our itinerary didn't happen. There were 1 or 2 stops on our Marrakech day tour that we didn't do (Marrakech museum, university). We missed the visit to Ouarzazate entirely because the snow caused a long delay in the bus ride (not Bamba or Rouge's fault, but still was a portion of our trip that we paid for that did not end up happening). Our second day in Marrakech we were promised breakfast and did not get it. One item turned out better than promised, which was that instead of taking a local bus alone to Fes, as indicated on our itinerary, we were given a shared van with other travelers, which was much more comfortable. The indication of "lunch on your own" was a bit deceiving, since most of those days, either there was only one restaurant available where we were, or we were taken to a specific restaurant in the city instead of being able to chose. Maybe a private arrangement between the restaurant and the tour company? These restaurants were generally much more expensive than what we would have chosen on our own. In one of these instances, we were dropped off at the end of the tour at a restaurant and, when we told our guide we were going to go somewhere else (the tour had finished and we were parting ways with the guide), he was angry at us for making him take us there if we weren't going to eat there. This seemed unnecessary. Overall it was a great experience. Just a few ways expectations could have been set more clearly and better follow-through with what was on the itinerary.

    3.5 - Good

    The trip was very good enabling us to see many fantastic sights throughout Morocco. The camel ride and sleep out in the desert was a highlight. The only negative I can find is the fact that they continually took you to restaurants that tried to sell you three course meals at inflated prices. Obviously someone was getting a cut out of the profits. We just wanted to try typical Moroccan food.
    Bamba Experience commented on this review
    Hi Paul, Thank you for choosing to travel with us and for posting such a positive review on TourRadar. We are so glad you enjoyed your trip to Morocco and seeing the fantastic sights, riding a camel, and sleeping out in the desert. Morocco is such a beautiful and incredible country to visit, and we are so glad that you chose to do it with Bamba. We are sorry you felt the restaurants you were taken to tried to sell you meals at inflated prices. However, we hope you enjoyed your trip overall and that you got to taste some great, traditional Moroccan food. At the end of the day, all we want is for you to enjoy your trip, and feel that you made the most out of it! We look forward to seeing you soon on another Bamba adventure! Take care, Nadege / The Bamba Happiness Team
