From all your Seattle area fans – thanks for such an amazing trip! From cooking days to the Sahara Camel Trekking, to the Atlas Mountains and the road to Marrakech; it was fabulous and so are you! I’m still learning to cook Moroccan and loving every bite! -Dianne, Seattle

It’s now been a month since our fantastic journey, and I still want to return and live in Morocco. A very big thank you for the best trip I have ever been on. You managed to execute the best individual hand selected places to see, the best places to stay, and the most beautiful foods to taste. Your success was enhanced by the fantastic people you organised to take care of us, guide us, and entertain us. Please pass on my gratitude to all these people, as some of the most polite, friendly and welcoming people I have had the pleasure to meet. The only problem we have now is not when can we return, but how soon. Again thank you, and your dedicated team for an extraordinary ,well designed view of your beautiful country. We will meet again in the very near future. –Neall
