JM "This is the first time that I have ever taken a tour, and for Morocco, I think it was the best way to go. The tour is run by a local operator KTI voyages. Transfers to/from the airport were smooth. Hotels: they were all fine, similar rating to what you would expect in Europe (less than what you would expect in North America). Some were better than others but overall can't complain. Food: overal..."

    4.0 - Good

    I enjoyed this tour and recognise that a lot was seen in a short period of time. Last year I spent one week staying in a Riad in the Fes Medina so I know it well. The local guide on this tour took us only to tourist shops with "hard-sell" and missed the most important sights: namely the two main thoroughfares of the medina and the artisans' quarter. All hotels were good except for le Mirage in Fes which was bad and I recommend that it be removed from the itinerary. Food in general was of good quality but not Moroccan. Only one hotel served Moroccan bread at breakfast... The trip from Fes to Marrakech is approximately 500Km and took about 10 hours by bus. I recommend that the tour be increased by one night which could be spent in the mountains to break such an exhausting journey. The visit to the "famous" square in Marrakech was made in mid-afternoon when it was very hot and there was practically no activity in the square. I recommend that this visit be made at night when the square is alive with performers. Overall, with the above provisos, I can recommend this tour which was efficiently run, with airport pick-up on time. I hope to book with Tour Radar again.

    Forfait acheté avec Wingbuddy: Maroc authentique. J'ai acheté le forfait Maroc authentique, soit la visite des principales villes: Casablanca, Rabat, Meknes, Fes, Marrakech. D'abord le forfait acheté était en français. Sur place, considérant que le groupe était mal composé, trop de nationalités différentes, le guide m'a clairement informé que ce serait en italien et en anglais !!!! J'ai pourtant acheté un circuit en français. Ensuite, le circuit acheté devait nous permettre du temps de libre et des dîners libres. Ceci n'est pas arrivé....le guide nous obligeait à aller dans les restaurants de ses connaissances. Et à grands prix. Le lendemain, le groupe a pris position lui demandant de ne pas répéter l'expérience. Alors.....il nous a privé de lunch et de temps d'arrêt...! Il a décidé de nous ramener à l'hôtel à 14hrs juste à temps pour le buffet qui terminait à 14hrs30! Aussi, le guide, a totalement manqué de respect à mon égard. Pendant le séjour, j'ai écrit à WINGBUDDY pour leur faire part de la problématique. Et qu'un courriel plus détaillé suivrait au retour. De retour au Canada, j'ai téléphoné et j'ai envoyé un courriel détaillé avec des preuves. Le seul courriel reçu: un accusé de réception. En aucun moment un représentant de WINGBUDDY n'a pris la peine de communiquer avec moi afin d'en discuter. WINGBUDDY n'est certainement pas une agence/ grossiste qui respecte sa clientèle, malgré les écrits sur son site web qui mentionne '' service à la clientèle imbattable''. Pour votre information, WINGBUDDY est affilié à l'agence / groupe KTI voyage en Afrique. Les bureaux à Montréal sont au 1805, rue Sauvé, Montréal. Après plus d'un mois suite à mon premier courriel à WINGBUDDY, sans explication de leur part, je décide de partager cette mauvaise expérience de voyage.

    I really enjoyed the Authentic Morocco Tour. I only had one week to explore Morocco and this tour covered many places around the country. We could not have asked for a better tour guide or driver. Our guide Ahmed was professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and responsive to the needs of individuals on the tour. Our driver Mohamed was also professional, helpful, and friendly. He even fixed my sunglasses when they broke on the first day of the trip, which I was so thankful for! I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who would like to learn more about Moroccan history and culture.

    1.5 - Rather poor

    The positive was the pick up at the airport that was efficient, 2 out of 4 hotels were well located and clean while the other two were in unsafe areas and not the cleanest. The tour wasn’t what I expected. The guide took us to markets more then sight seeing so we can buy from his sources. We also didn’t have a choice for the free lunch as he took us to areas that were unsafe and unsanitary so we had to eat at his establishments that were overpriced and the service was horrible. Well across the country as a woman I didn’t feel safe or respected and based on the areas visited which were extremely poor I would not recommend this to anyone wishing to see a full picture of the country. We also had no way of contacting our tour representative as our guide didn’t know who it was. Very disappointed with the whole experience for the money we paid not worth it.

    It was enjoyable. Our tour leader, Akmed was very helpful. Driver and assistant perfect. Daily guides around Medinas were good to excellent. Perhaps too much time at some tourist craft shops at Fes. The optional dinner and show in Marrakech was disappointing. Overall an informative, interesting and enjoyable look at Morocco.

    Morocco wa wonderful and our tour guide was knowledgeable, helpful and a lot of laughs. The trip introduced us to many aspects of the country, and we saw an awful lot of this beautiful country in just a few days. I especially appreciated the historical sites and the lovely architecture. I recommend this trip.

    This is the first time that I have ever taken a tour, and for Morocco, I think it was the best way to go. The tour is run by a local operator KTI voyages. Transfers to/from the airport were smooth. Hotels: they were all fine, similar rating to what you would expect in Europe (less than what you would expect in North America). Some were better than others but overall can't complain. Food: overall we were disappointed. The included food were hotel buffet style breakfasts and suppers. I had asked about this prior to booking and was told it would be a-la-carte for suppers, but this was not the case. "Independent" lunches were also not what I would consider independent. They would bring you to a restaurant where you would see multiple other tour groups and not really any locals and you essentially had no other choice than that restaurant because they go past all the main places where locals eat - this seems to be common among tours, so maybe it was my expectation that was unrealistic. When I asked about this I was told it was to ensure that we don't get sick - except that I got sick regardless (although maybe I was just unlucky because my husband who ate essentially the same things I did was fine). One of the independent lunches was actually at a gas station - and while they did serve hot food, it was still a gas station... sadly, this was not the worst place they brought us for lunch. The bus: was comfortable, had cooling vents that could be opened/closed, seats reclined slightly which was nice especially on longer trips. Only disappointment about the bus was that there was no washroom. The driver's stopped every 1.5-2 hours for a washroom break as a result. Tour guide: very nice, spoke multiple languages, told locals to leave the group alone when people were being harassed, accommodating for special requests of things people wanted to purchase in the markets. One thing that I found lacking was more of a group dynamic that the guide could have helped by doing some ice-breaker type discussions. When I've done day-tours elsewhere the guide usually does this, so I was surprised by this given the length of the tour. People were from various countries (we were the only Canadians), and while there were language barriers, by the end of the trip I didn't even know everyone's name I just spent the last 8 days with... Local tour guides for some of the sites: they were all nice and helpful. Drivers: nice, drove safely. Casablanca: Hassan Mosque was impressive (although had to pay extra fee to go in - definitely worth the money). Best meal we had was in the market in Fez. The drive from Fes - Beni Mellal - Marrakesh: they took a more of a scenic route rather than the autoroute which would have brought us back past Casablanca. The scenic route took around 12 hours whereas the autoroute would have been more like 8 (on the return from Marrakesh to Casablanca you do take part of this autoroute). The stop in Beni-Mellal for lunch was awful. The food was bland, and of limited choice, they took orders but either forgot you or brought you the wrong food. We found the optional dinner Fantasia show in Marrakesh was underwhelming. The food was good, but the area for the show is very large and poorly lit - it seemed more like a tourist trap than anything else. In retrospect I don't feel like I would have missed anything by not going. You will see a lot of markets (frequently selling the same things) and exteriors of Mosques. But some of the craftsmanship that you will see is beautiful, and the landscape of the country is also beautiful. Locals were friendly, although it helps that we speak French. If it wasn't for the food options (hotel buffets and poorly chosen "independent" lunch locations), I would have rated this itinerary higher. However, Wingbuddy offers a good deal, and we would consider using them again.
