The guides and itinerary were good. Our local driver, in particular, was excellent.

Morocco

We liked Villa des Orangers very much and would stay there again. We loved Dar Ahlam - one of our top hotels anywhere. The rooms and garden are wonderful, and the quiet, friendly atmosphere created by Mungo and Romilly was very special. The food was outstanding and the hammam was great.

Youssef, our driver, looked after us very well. He was always calm and friendly and made us feel comfortable and relaxed. All our other guides were very professional, friendly and gave us a good sense of the country.
