    Me and my husband love Morocco and we love private guided excursions as it become less crowded and more of an intimate experience. We loved Ismail our guide he is very accommodating and it was a joy listening to him passionately explain about their rich history. We went for a week and it was exactly what we wanted it to be. Morocco Meander are a travel agency we will use again in the future for our next adventure. We stumbled across them on Twitter and must say the personable planning together was outstanding!
