& Culinary Experience in Morocco:
What a great last day. We went to cooking school and yes John did it
too! We got there and they promptly handed us our shopping baskets and
off to the local market where we bought all of the ingredients including
a live chicken the our chef picked out and had de-feathered and made
ready for cooking.
learned to chop!! It was a great way to spend out last day, thank you
Omar for the itinerary!
We are back home now, got in late Monday night. Again John and I want
to thank you for all of the great service for our magical trip to Morocco.
I never thought anything would be as good as the Turkey/Egypt trip but
this one was. We have not seen very many of our friends and family yet,
but starting this weekend we will be out and about and believe me your
praises will be sung to the highest heavens! I am trying to figure out
how to post on the Morocco Forum on Trip Advisor and will be posting
on Facebook as well. I am waiting on John to get me some more pictures
and then the posts will start.
Please let your representatives know how much we appreciated Ahmed and
Moncif, they were just great and deserve all the praise in the world
for being so adaptable with John and I. As you well know John takes
1,000's of pictures (this trip over 3000) and that means stopping in
the car or waiting while touring and both of the guys were just great
about it. Also their smiles and heartfelt kindness was there every day!
I know there were a lot of people in the background that also made this
happen for us and our thanks to all of them as well.
John and I cannot wait to book the next trip with you!! I will get back
to you when I get eveything posted so you can follow along.
Thanks again dear friend!
Trip Review on Trip Advisor :
reviews: 5“ Travel In Style tours (San Francisco) is fantastic
May 27, 2010, 4:56 PM
We just completed a month long deluxe trip to Morocco, Egypt and Jordan
and used Travel In Style, San Francisco, for all three countries. Their
services were extra-ordinary. They work closely with you to tailor the
trip to your specifications and are very flexible. In each country we
were met promptly at the airport -- in Egypt and Jordan even inside
customs! -- by a tour representative and taken to our car for transport
to our hotels. Guides and drivers were personable and knowledgeable.
When a small glitch arose in Cairo and I e-mailed the local rep and
Omar at Travel In Style in San Francisco, the local Cairo rep called
me twenty minutes later! Omar had received the e-mail and immediately
telephoned the local agency to make sure everything was handled promptly
and to our complete satisfaction. We are experienced travelers, but
I am still amazed at the level of service we received. Highest recommendations.
For the one night in the Sahara we suggest list of things to
- Thermal clothing, to use as sleeping wear, for tenting in the desert,
where evenings and early morning can be quite chilly (particularly
in October, April and May) . Polar fleece jacket or woollen sweater
for early morning and late evening. Windbreaker. Long-sleeved shirts
to cover your arms and shoulders from the intense sun.
- Sturdy jogging or walking shoes, well broken in (NOT brand new);
lighter tennis or regular shoes; sandals for wear in camp and in your
- Linen or straw sunhat, cap and/or head scarf
- Good sun block cream or lotion
- Miscellaneous personal items:
- good sunglasses with UV protection, in a sturdy case
- spare pair of prescription glasses, if you wear glasses
- insect repellant .
For the one night camp : SANITARY FACILITIES:
To ensure your utmost comfort, showers /toilets are available
