Desert Tours of Morocco with Berber Treasures Morocco Tours“Thank you for making our tour of Morocco such a wonderful experience – an outstanding highlight of our travel adventures! A land of contrast and extremes, the scenery, food and customs were constantly amazing and delightful. Our stays in spectacular riads, strolls through astonishingly eclectic medinas in Fes and
Marrakech, visits to Palaces, Mosques, Roman ruins and craftsmen, and of course, our camel ride into the Sahara Desert where we spent a night of luxury amongst the dunes, were all made even more enjoyable by our excellent guides. Moh shared personalised insights into Morocco’s culture and history while ensuring a safe and pleasant tour for our group. Essaouira on the Atlantic coast was a superb add-on to our main tour.”  Dora Pearce, Vic, Australia

“Yes, really sad to leave Morocco. What a great country to visit, and what great people to meet. This country should be high on every traveller/tourists lists of must-visit countries, and they should do it, without question, with Berber Treasures.
The country has just so much to offer – history emphasised so dramaticaly by the Roman ruins – such incredibly diverse landscapes – a Berber culture to be admired – the friendliness of the people themselves – and within a country which is a great credit to King Mohammed VI and his administration. As for Berber Treasures – CONGRATULATIONS and THANKS to you and your crew in Morocco for giving us one of our best travel experiences. But given your dedication, thoroughness, and professionalism which you demonstrated, then it didn’t surprise us.  And so it’s now Spain. Looking forward to it, but a hard act to follow.  Before I finish Jan just wanted to say how much she/we loved Hami as our driver/guide we soon developed a great rapport with Hami, and he soon became our honorary third child. We loved his Australian sense of humour – he got all our jokes, and we got his. His knowledge is exceptional – there wasn’t anything he couldn’t answer, and we asked plenty.”  Graeme & Jan D Gipsland, Australia

Morocco Tours to Fez & Volubilis travel adventures with Berber Treasures Morocco Tours of Morocco“We have just returned from 2 weeks touring around Morocco. The whole experience was fantastic. My partner and I would like to express our sincere thanks to Berber tours and to our outstanding driver Mustafa. Mustafa’s knowledge of Morocco was incredible, and his genuinely friendly personality and sense of humour made the whole trip even better. The itinerary was brilliant with Fez, Marrakech and our overnight stay in the Desert some of the unbelievable highlights. Everything was organised with precision, and we could not fault a thing. Thanks again for such a memorable experience.”  Steve and Belinda Geraghty Perth, Australia


“This is just a note to give you some feedback on my recent trip to Morocco. I had a lovely time and it far surpassed my expectations. Firstly my guide Mustafa was excellent. I always felt safe and he was really helpful and accommodating. On the second last day when I wanted to go to the Jardin Majorelle he managed to fit it into the programme and also I got there before the large queues developed.  The accommodation was excellent- the riads were particularly lovely and the overnight stay in the luxury desert camp was truly magical. I was blown away by the scenery. There were too many highlights to list them all. I must go again ! Thank you very much to Berber Treasures I will be recommending you to my family and friends.”  Grace T. Brisbane, Australia

“This is just a quick note to let you know that we had a wonderful trip with Ahmed. Please thank him again from me and ‘Mister Geoff’. Everything worked like clockwork and we saw so much and learnt a lot more plus having fun at the same time.  Thank you again for organising.”  Jean P. Sydney, Australia

Fez tours with Berber Treasures Morocco Tours of Morocco“How do you put ‘Morocco’ into words?  The atmosphere of ancient souks,  rows of brilliantly coloured spices, mules with their heavy cargo competing with motorbikes for space on the road, camels walking majestically through the silent desert at sunset, the smell of leather bags hanging in bazaars, sweet, hot mint tea poured from ornate silver teapots, elaborate and breathtaking mosaics, narrow dusty alleyways opening onto opulent riads’, delicious steaming tagines,  stunning lanterns, calls to prayer echoing through the warm nights across ancient cities and the delicious hot coffee served every morning with beaming smile……… This was Morocco and more.  I travelled to Morocco alone and was a bit worried.  I needn’t have been.  I had the most wonderful time and never felt unsafe once in this impossibly beautiful country.  My guide Abdel made me feel welcome immediately.  He was a very safe and careful driver and had an extensive knowledge of this amazing place.  He was punctual and reliable also which is very important.  Thank you Berber Tours and Abdel for taking me on the holiday of a lifetime. I would recommend Berber Tours to anyone!
Bev Alland, Sydney, Australia

“Before the memory fades, I thought I might give some feedback in my recent adventure. I have probably include these points in the feedback form but just in case……

  1. Firstly, I would like to say that I would ( and already have) recommend Berber treasures to my friends for a trip to Morocco. I had a great time.
  2. You should probably give Mo (our driver) a pay rise. What a great ambassador for your company!! Nothing was too much hassle for him, and he was also very professional, courteous and friendly. He was a great driver in terms of navigating the traffic and we always felt safe with his driving. But we have already advised him
    that he is not such a good singer ! J ( I have him on file singing but its 61MB and wont email!)  I could not recommend Mo highly enough.
  3. The accommodation provided was excellent, with standouts being Fes and Ouarzazate….

Morocco Desert camel rides Berber Treasures Morocco Tours of MerzougaA fascinating and diverse country, with a new twist at every turn. Something every day made me rethink my perceptions. All in all I had a great time. I would highly recommend both Morocco and Berber Treasures. Any thanks for a great holiday”
Peter F, Perth, Australia

“I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you for the wonderful trip you organized.  It was by far the best holiday I have ever had…it exceeded all my expectations. Mohammed was fantastic & he certainly is an asses to your company.  The night in the desert was unbelievable & the highlight of the trip….just magical.  Hopefully one day I can get back & see the places I missed out on.”
G Purser, Floreat, Australia

“I am starting this as we are preparing to leave Morocco. We would like to thank you for a great experience. Morocco has a lot going for it, landscape, architecture, history, and craft. However I think ones of the best parts has been the people. There are always extremes but generalising they have a wonderful sense of humour and treat each other with some care. We are leaving with a very high regard for Morocco and its people.  We had Abdelatif as our driver and I don’t know what your other drivers are like but he is extraordinary. As a driver he is brilliant. I dislike being driven but felt much more confident with him than if I had been driving myself in Australia. His English was excellent and we had some wonderful conversations that would have been difficult with native English speakers. His command of other languages which he used to our benefit was also impressive. He was more than punctual and did everything to help us. We could not fault him. Apart from that he is a very fine human being. His attitude to his fellows was fantastic… Apart from commending Abdel we would particularly like to thank you. Meeting you [in your Sydney office] and how you dealt with us before the trip [] gave us confidence and the trip has lived up to more than our hopes. We had everything clearly explained and things happened as they were predicted…as we have said we have left Morocco hoping we could get back sometime and will recommend you to anyone who is interested in travelling there. ”
Jan King & Paul Hopmeier, Sydney, Australia

“We have just returned from Morocco, after the most awe inspiring, magical tour, organised by Berber Treasures. My partner and I would like to express our sincere gratitude to Abdul, our driver and guide, and to you Berber Travel, for organising a custom made tour just for us. Not a thing went wrong throughout, and the highlight for me were the beautiful selection of riads and kasbahs that were organised for us. Those selected were of the highest standard, and reflected their immediate environment. Myself, being a designer, this was heaven; and the colour, design and depth of culture and history touched our hearts! Abdul was fun and informative… Once again, thankyou Berber Treasures for organising a professional and reliable tour, which will only lead us to refer you to our friends, family and colleagues.”
Delappe and Nathan, Fremantle, Australia

The Meikle's in Marrakech with Berber Treasures Morocco Tours of Morocco“We have been back for a while and meaning to send you an email. We enjoyed our time in Morocco and our driver (Brahim) was very good. We now understand the “family” Berber structure as you told us about during our initial enquiries.  During our travels we got to experience things that the average traveller may not get to do… The whole trip was excellent and the city tour guides were very knowledgable also.  As you know I asked lots of questions before booking but can now say your company did a great job and would be happy to recommend your services to all! I had a different picture in mind- Morocco is …not all desert (I pictured it being similar to Dubia- how wrong was I!!) it was a great suprise to discover something different every day- one day in the medina in Fes watching the craftsmen, then the drive over the middle Atlas through []tree covered mountains to descend on the other side and arrive on the edge of great Sand dunes near Merzouga and then a camel trek into the Erg Chebbi desert!!  All the accommodation was wonderful… We would however like to say thanks for a great  and memorable experience!  Well thats enough for now- a couple of photos attached.”
Bill and Linda Meikle, Mission Beach, Australia

“A belated, however a very big thank you to you for organising our truly wonderful Moroccan holiday,  It was an experience of a lifetime and hopefully “I” will have the opportunity to visit again one day with “more adventurers”  Your passion for this beautiful destination was so apparent on our first conversation and your attention to detail in our comprehensive itinerary was very much appreciated.  Our thanks to Ismail and Ahmed are are both assets to your company and wonderful “ambassadors for their Morocco”  Our warmest wishes to you and Berber Treasures for a very happy successful future.”
Robin K and Judy J, Adelaide, Australia

”We are now in London after a wonderful trip to Morocco. Many thanks to Berber Treasures. Your choice of accommodation was spot-on and we were more than happy with the itinerary. We would like to record our appreciation of Abdel’s services. He was helpful and courteous, friendly without being intrusive of our space, knowledgeable about Morocco as well as being an extremely careful driver. Thanks also for the emails about changes to our airline schedule. See you in Sydney later in the year. best wishes”
Jocelyn and John Millett, Sydney, Australia

Todra Gorge with Berber Treasures Morocco Tours of Morocco Desert Tours”We arrived back in Sydney on Sunday after a fabulous tour in Morocco. I have attached only a few photographs from the trip (many more available). All the arrangements went well, the driver/guide Abdul was excellent. His level of English, explanation of various sites of interest and his level of service and courtesy was “second to none”…wonderful. Being from nomad family was also very important for us as we were able to ask many questions and gain a genuine knowledge of this unique and mysterious way of life. We will continue to recommend to our friends to consider Morocco via Berber Treasures…Again, thank you for a wonderful experience and congratulations on having an excellent team on the ground representing Berber treasures.”
Regards Robert Thompson, Sydney, Australia

”We had a great trip to Morocco, your itinerary was spot on , the imperial cities of Fez and Marrakech were both mystical and fascinating ( Casablanca as you advised was of least interest) , Essaouira was well worth visiting , lovely riad there too. The Sahara desert experience was unique and we are very glad that you encouraged us to do the overnight desert excursion. The country side was incredibly diverse, just so worthwhile seeing it. I could go on….Moh our guide / driver was just brilliant , we thoroughly enjoyed his company , his commentary of the country and the culture was excellent , he was very obliging and polite , his driving you just couldn’t fault.…Well , thank you for sending us on the Moroccan journey. Job well done.”
Regards Christopher Bean, Newcastle, Australia

“Thanks very much for organising our travel to Morocco. As you can see here we had a great time and the wheelchair access worked out fine. … Wonderful holiday and we hope we can send people your way. I’ve put this book on Facebook so I’ll let people know about you there!“
Jane Spring, Sydney, Australia

Tours of the High Atlas Mountains in Morocco with Berber Treasures Morocco Tours of Morocco “I would like to again thank all “the team” for a wonderful holiday.  I loved the varied landscapes of Morocco – the coast, all the mountains, as well as my favourite – the Sahara desert!  Also not forgetting the amazing Moorish & Berber architecture & of course, the souks in Marrakesh!  I am sending some photos …”
Emily Dryza, Adelaide, Australia

”We are in Fes right now and having a great time, … Abdul is our guide he is so friendly … We were invited with him to Berber family’s house last night for dinner. The kindness and hospitality of the Moroccan people is wonderful … we are both loving Morocco.”
Michelle Wakefield, Canberra, Australia

”We are on day three in Marrakesh and are chilling out a little in our riad in Marrakesh. It’s lovely. You certainly know how to pick them! Abdul has done an excellent job as our driver. He has been great. I can’t believe I have to go back soon. I don’t want to go back at all…“
Michelle Wakefield, Canberra, Australia

”We had a very good trip to Morocco and I pass on all our thanks to you and your crew for all the effort. Moha and Said were excellent in their driving, assistance, advice and attention. We also enjoyed their company a lot. Please send our best wishes and thanks to them again. We enjoyed Morocco a lot, it was all we expected and the tour and places we visited were great. It’s a pity we did not have a bit more time to do it at a slightly more relaxed pace. In regard to the guides, Mohammed in Marrakesh was great and we really liked him. The Fez guide was good and knowledgeable… The Berber camp was a worthwhile experience … Again, thanks for your help and best wishes”

”Jan and I arrived home today. Thank you for organising our trip. We had a wonderful trip thanks to your advice and organising. Abdel did a very conscientious job and drove us very safely, providing good guidance and care along the way. The desert camp experience… Interesting experience…Spectacular dune formation, orange coloured sand… Good food…. the Gheris valley from Amellago to Tatattchoute was spectacular with some cliffside dwellings, small towns and narrow green strip along the river.. Fun walk in the town with local kids everywhere …Another great tagine meal. …Todra Gorge was spectacular with 300 m high cliffs… a spectacular drive up the valley of the Dades River into the Dades Gorge… then a serious off road track to the west to the M’Gouna valley. Stopped on the way at a nomad camp where a family of 8 live in a cave and some tents … the grandfather … was resting in the cool cave where his daughter in law made us oregano based tea ( heaps of sugar)…We all enjoyed the encounter…Down the very picturesque valley to El K’elaa [and] the valley of roses … to an isolated luxury place …near Ouarzazate where we enjoyed a swim … Sumptuous rooms … on the edge of a lake [near] a villa owned by the King…we crossed the spectacular [High Atlas Mountain] pass Tizi n’Tichka at 2200 m …into the head of the Ourika Valley for a real surprise… fabulous …could easily have stayed longer than one night…the [Essaouira] riad was…stunningly delightful…[Marrakech]: Fabulous guide and the magnificent Majorelle gardens…”

Morocco Desert Tours of Ouarzazate Berber Treasures Morocco Tours of Morocco Desert trips“Well, here we are and our trip to Morocco is now in the past. I would love to talk to you personally about the wonderful time we had there. Many thanks for what you did for us…
I am sending the promised photo of Moh, Pam, Brian and I taken on my ** birthday at Chez Dimiti’s [Ouarzazate].  What a wonderful time we had! Only wish our trip was still ahead of us instead of being behind us.  Hope that you are inundated with lots of people booking trips with “Berber Treasures”!  Think of Morocco frequently and the wonderful experience we were lucky to have and the fabulous effort on your part to bring it all together for us!”
Cheryl & Brian Cook, Melbourne, Australia

”Sorry I haven’t emailed earlier to let you know what a wonderful holiday we had. Moh was sensational. Not only is he a good driver he was also prepared to share his life with us which made our trip more meaningful. We really enjoyed … Rabat, Merzouga and Ouarzazate and also … Fes. Anyway, thank you for a very well organised trip. I wish it could have been longer…”
Kind regards, Helen Percy, Batesford, Australia

Morocco High Atlas Mountains - Berber Treasures Morocco Tours of Morocco”We really enjoyed Morocco and are already talking about our return trip! Abdul, our driver was excellent. He was extremely courteous, had a great sense of humour and had a very good understanding of English. His knowledge of Morocco was exemplary and he obviously loved his country. On top of all that his driving skills could not be faulted. We enjoyed the half day tour of Marrakech and the guide Mohamed was very informative.…One night in Essaouira was probably too short … and maybe … an extra night in Ourika. The accommodation was of a very high standard. We really enjoyed the riads. We especially liked the kasbah in Ouarzazate. Having the King of Morocco staying next door certainly added an interesting aspect to the stay! Thank you for all your hard work in making our holiday in Morocco so enjoyable and we would not hesitate to use Berber Treasures for our next trip.”
Kind regards, Jenny & Gary Cox, Australia

”I’m pleased to report that our Morocco tour went well.”
Andrew Ball, Switzerland

”It is time I wrote to thank you for organising such a wonderful trip for us. It was perfect (even if it did rain in the Sahara) and one of the best trips we have ever done. Having travelled extensively independently, Berber Treasures made us realise how good it is to have the concerns of finding transport and accommodation as well as what to see taken from our hands. That said, we still had the flexibility to make decisions should we wish to. Mohammed our driver/guide was terrific and gave us an insight into Moroccan life that we would otherwise not have experienced. Add to that his patience, willingness and wonderful sense of humour as well as wisdom far beyond his years. Please pass on our regards and thanks to him. We feel as though we got to know him very well in those two weeks. Morocco itself was just as we imagined and more! The scenery is spectacular and from the outside looking in, the people seem to have a closeness that is probably lacking in our fast paced lives. Anyway, again thank you so much. I will be giving your details to anyone I know who intends travelling to Morocco.“
Sue Lipscombe VIC, Australia

M'gouna Roses Valley Craftsman - Berber Treasures Morocco Tours of Morocco Desert Trips”I just wanted to send a quick email to tell you how much we enjoyed our visit to Morocco. You do a fabulous job with the itinerary, the accommodation and the local guides. For Chris and I (and I’m sure I speak for Deb and Margaret as well) it was all the little extras that made the difference – by that I mean the rustic character of the Riads, the charm of the Sahara experience, the knowledge and friendliness of the guides etc, etc. Moh was a fabulous guide. He has a wonderful sense of humour and made us feel as though nothing was too much trouble. He was also open and willing to share so much about himself and his country which made us feel as though we got a taste of the real Morocco. We especially enjoyed the opportunity to eat a home cooked meal in some real Moroccan homes. Anyway, at the risk of getting too gushy – thank you very much for your efforts and rest assured that Chris and I are already recommending Berber Treasures to anyone who wants to listen!”
Jane O’Brien UK
P.S “Do you want to branch out to Turkey? Chris and I are planning a trip there next year.”

”I just wanted to thank you for our recent trip to Morocco. It was a very short notice trip and you were able to accommodate our requirements, time constraints and what we wanted to see within the time we had. Abdel, the guide/driver and accomm were brilliant; he knew all the ‘local’ stuff you would not otherwise find on your own, it was like being a local. Excellent. Saw so much in that time and realise so much more to see and will be definitely coming back to you to see more of Morocco. (Food excellent. BTW, am a convert to tagines)”
Kirk H ACT, Australia

”I just wanted to write and thank you for the wonderful tour. The accommodation was excellent, and Moh was one of, if not the best guide I have ever had. My hubby was not as keen as myself to go to Morocco and he really enjoyed it, and I really have Moh to thank for that he went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. The Riad in Fez was lovely and I could highly recommend it. Overall we had a wonderful anniversary and Berber Treasures played a big role in that, so thankyou. Your company really impressed me. I wish you did tours in other countries!”

Morocco Desert trips with Berber Treasures Morocco Tours of Morocco”A great trip and Mohammed was a great guide/driver/friend. Hopefully will get my head above work later in the week to ring thank you personally for your organisation … The children had a great time. It was a great family experience… the bike riding … the camels and the night in the desert… eating mechoui with Khadisha’s family … the riad in Marrakech. I am recommending your company to families here. If you have other families thinking of a holiday in Morocco I am happy for you to get them to call me.”
Ross Magee NSW, Australia

”Hi guys. We’re back home, unfortunately. We had the best time. Morocco was brilliant. The tour was great. I can’t believe how many photos we took…. Thanks so much for all the time you took helping us and putting the itinerary together for us – it was exactly what we wanted. I wish we were still there. I’ve been telling everyone at work that they must go to Morocco and they must go with you guys. Thanks again Berber Treasures.”
Nicole Curtis ACT, Australia

”I would have called but it is too late in Sydney, so I will call you tomorrow night instead. We had such a wonderful time in Maroc – it was an incredible holiday and we have some great photos and videos….and a few stories to tell! Thank you so much for all your organisation for the holiday – it certainly made life over there easy… I won’t write too much more, but will call tomorrow to tell you all about our fantastic trip.”
Carmel Harrington Paris, France

”Ken and I would like to thank you for arranging our great trip to Morocco. Abdel our driver was so good at everything and really he made the trip for us. He has such a fun personality and yet is very responsible for ones safety and enjoyment of each experience. Our thanks again for your expert advice on the trip.”
Pat & Ken Armstrong WA, Australia

Morocco travel Berber Treasures Morocco Tours”I am back at work after the holiday and just wanted to thank you our trip. The riads we stayed at were great (I especially liked the riad in Marrakesh) and Ali our guide was really good. Morocco is a very interesting country and different to other places I have been to. Marrakesh was a very busy city and the medina of Fes was huge. I was very glad we had a guide to take us through it. We still would have been trying to find our way out without one!!! Essaouira was not as fast paced as Marrakesh and a great place to relax for a few days. We enjoyed sitting on the wall at the beach eating our ice cream and watching the local guys play soccer. Thanks again.”
Suzie Davies NSW, Australia

”Just a short note to let know Virginia and I had a great time in Morocco. The trip was made especially good by Mohammed our driver who really looked after us and made sure we got the most out of the places we visited. We really appreciated his efforts. He did an excellent job and we really enjoyed his company.”
Andrew English SA, Australia

”I am not the ‘gushy’ type. Mo our driver was fantastic and I loved it. I have distributed the Berber Treasures business cards throughout my office. For me, that is the best measure of a successful trip. You done good and I add my thanks. Another measure of success is the level of shopping completed. Jane came back with most of Morocco packed in a suitcase. My formally very English home now looks a look like a Riad and I’m living on couscous and tagines.”
Chris Lines London, UK

”Just a quick email to thank you for the recent tour we undertook. All went extremely well and our expectations were exceeded. We had Ismail as a driver / guide and he was great.. The itinerary was well planned, accommodation was very good and the experience worth every dollar. The trip was fantastic and Ismail a real gem. Once again thanks for the trip – we would willingly recommend Berber Treasures to anyone contemplating a trip to Morocco.”
Tony and Sue Shaw WA, Australia

J Mitchell at Erg Chebbi with Berber Treasures Morocco Tours of Erg Chebbi”This is long over due. Have been meaning to ring to say how much we enjoyed our trip you organised for the Langwells & ourselves. So many great memories & Mo couldn’t have been a better guide!! (driver!) He Knew so much. The cooking class at Ali’s was very special. The lemon chicken has been made various times & enjoyed by all. We’re spreading the word of our great trip!! The places we visited & the accommodation was excellent. Thank you so much. Merry Christmas to you.”
Jock & Jos Mitchell NSW, Australia

”Having travelled to Morocco in October 2008 I am only now sitting down to write this email to thank you and Berber Treasures for a fantastic trip. A special thanks must go to Mohammed our guide. He was able to reflect the love for his country, its culture and its people in a friendly and personal way . His attentiveness and professionalism made Morocco a very special trip. My personal thanks to you and your organization for what was one of the highlights of my life. My wife, Pamela, also asked me to extend her thanks as well.”
Arthur Mezups NSW, Australia

”Had a ball. Raving about it in an email isn’t enough for me though, so I’ll give you a ring in the next few days.”
Deb NSW, Australia

“We are safely home again after our lovely trip. Ali our guide was excellent. My favourite day was the drive across the Jebel Saghro Mountains and lunch en route. The riad in Marrakech was very very nice. We had a wonderful time. It was just lovely. Do you go anywhere else?”
Annabel WA, Australia
