We had an awesome trip. It was very organized and our tour leader Mohammed was such an excellent guide. We're very grateful to have Mohammed as our tour leader - one with an amazing sense of humanity. He was not just very knowledgeable about Moroccan history and culture, he was such a pleasant, kind, honest, caring, compassionate and protective tour leader who is very concerned about the needs of each and everyone of us. He really took care of us from our very first meeting all the way to our send-off at the airport in Casablanca. Needless to say, he made our trip a safe and truly enjoyable one with his own personal anecdotes and funny jokes. We bonded very well with other tour mates so much so that we plan to go back again to Morocco. Hats off to Mohammed and to Gate 1 travel.

We were really a family of sorts….. a cast of characters. :-) Our tour guide was the best I have ever had. Safi lead our group with his heart and it was evident in everything he did. He truly wanted us to have all that we wanted, and he did what he could to make it happen. He was there for us, and I felt very safe. He ran the tour very smoothly. What a lovely human being! I loved the variety of the places we stayed and the variety of the activities we did. The food was fabulous…… everything was. Gate 1 was waiting at the airport both on arrival and departure, easing any worries we may have had. I look forward to booking my next trip with Gate 1. A great experience!

Our guide for this trip was Abdel, an experienced, knowledgeable and caring guide. We had a large group (about 40) and he did an excellent job of keeping us informed, prompt and safe. Abdel has an extensive knowledge of Moroccan history, politics and tourism. He was caring and patient with us. For example, he took 20 minutes to tie our turbans so we looked “just right” when we rode camels into the Sahara. He knew each city intimately and advised us carefully and repeatedly how to avoid issues (like pickpockets and scammers) and how to have a safe fun trip. We also appreciate a few things that made the trip go smoother: - Abdel gave us electrical converters to use for our phones, cameras, etc. - Abdel had small bills of local currency available the first night so that we could exchange money with him for tips, etc ... We highly recommend Gate 1 in Morocco and Abdel as a guide.

This 13 Day Kaleidoscope of Morocco was one of the best vacations I have had for many reasons. Our Tour Manager, Khalid, was an amazing Tour Manager. He had a lot of knowledge of Morocco, the history and the geography of the area. He shared a ton of information with our group. Khalid was patient, kind, and caring of every member of our group-- there were approximately 43 of us. I never felt un-safe or I never worried about any destination, thanks to Khalid. I was particularly impressed with our Local Guide in FEZ, Hesham (not sure if I've spelled his first name correctly). Hesham is one of the best spoken, knowledgeable tour guides I have EVER experienced. He is a brilliant scholar and communicator ... He was a highlight of this tour. Morocco is a wonderful destination. There is so much to see, experience, and enjoy, from the food, to the people, sights ... I would rate this Tour a 10+.

We had a great trip to Morocco! Ali, our guide was a gem! We are very impressed! All of our city guides were excellent, too! This was our 1st Discovery trip (out of 4) and we plan to use this experience as our template for future Gate 1 trips. We felt very well cared for!!!

Our trip was terrific! Our guide Khalid Lamdira was outstanding. Beyond patient with a large group of people, an itinerary and schedule that met everyone's needs, good-natured and funny while also sharing a wealth of information about Morocco. He really went above and beyond the expectations of a tour guide. And a special shout out to the bus driver - who was never on his cell phone and drove safely - and the assistant for taking such good care of us; keeping us hydrated with plenty of bottled water, the bus clean, and helping us with our luggage. We will enthusiastically recommend Gate 1 to our friends. Thank you!

The Morocco trip was a great adventure! Our guide, Khalid, was very knowledgeable, extremely patient and went above and beyond the call of duty to assist the guests with a variety of concerns. The weather was perfect throughout the trip. I chose 4 of the 5 optional trips and was happy with all the choices. I am amazed that the price for the 13 days was so affordable. Morocco is such a beautiful country— a very pleasant surprise...Looking forward to another trip with you!

Our trip was great! Morocco is a fabulous country to visit. It has everything a tourist could want - delicious food, stupendous sights and phenomenal shopping due to so many talented craftspeople. Our tour manager, Redouen, was warm, caring about our needs, and above all very knowledgeable. We learned so much and enjoyed every minute.

The trip was wonderful. Morocco was a delightful surprises that has it all .... green valleys and hills, snow capped mountains, coast lines and that famous desert! Our guide, Hassan Moustaid, was so gracious and so well organized. His knowledge of his country was amazing. The food was overall good, but that on the options outstanding. Finally, I can't say enough about the sunset camel ride into the Sahara! An evening to remember. I would recommend this trip to anyone interested in that part of the world. It was wonderful!

It was a great tour of Morocco. Hesham was a truly fabulous guide. Bus driver, Azziz, and assistant, Hosnie, were excellent. The hotel accommodations (some with swimming pools) and restaurants very good. Pace was a bit fast for me, but the trip overall was just what I had hoped for. Shopping opportunities in nearly every city. Lots of lovely sweet mint tea and great coffee au lait. Hesham guided us to ATM's at banks (to anticipate any problems - but there were none). Lots of history and cultural learning along the way. I am now resting up from such a great trip. I plan to take another Gate 1 tour.

The trip to Morocco was superb! First of all, Larbi, our guide, was incredible in every way. He was efficient, sensitive to everyone’s needs, knowledgeable, fun, really thought of everything and anticipated all the possible issues that could arise on such a trip. The scenery was magnificent, the itinerary was perfect and the trip to the desert was memorable. Every day was filled with another delightful surprise. Loved being greeted with music, mint tea & cookies everywhere. The cultural experience and interpersonal aspect of getting to know Morocco was heartwarming and one we will truly keep with us forever.

Our Moroccan Allure Discovery tour was AMAZING from start to finish! We traveled with 14 of our friends. The six others that joined the small group said it was the BEST tour they had been on, ever! Larbi, our tour guide, was in one word GREAT. Larbi anticipated our ever need. He always went above and beyond so that we could have the best experiences ever! It was clear to us that he loves his country and his job sharing it with us! His knowledge of history and his willingness to answer every question helped us understand Morocco and its culture! Hassan, the driver, took us all around with great skill and care. Redone, the bus assistant, was most helpful, as well! My wife and I have traveled all over the world with and without tours! Gate 1 is the only way to go!

It was an experience of a lifetime. I will only book Signature tours from you in the future. I loved the seamlessness and ease of travel. Everything was covered by our wonderful tour guide, Larbi which let us enjoy the trip and not have to sweat the details. The accommodations were top notch, the food was great, and the sights and activities were out of this world. It exceeded my expectations.

It was obvious to all concerned that our tour director "Ham" was doing his life's passion. He was superb!!! And, the chemistry of the group was great as well. . .In June, I will be participating in my 6th Gate 1 Tour. So far, I really have no reason to change. . .Enjoyed my Moroccan adventure.
