    Well planned, good hotels, good to have breakfast and some meals included. I think maybe a few more activities could have been involved and more time to spend at the markets. I didn't mind the pre-picked restaurants but maybe a bit more variety. I was disappointed that we only stopped at the top of a lookout very far away from Ait Ben Haddou

    Good amount of time spent travelling around Morocco. Nice to see the country.

    I am very happy with the tour overall and liked that I could see a little bit of each city. I feel like I got a well-rounded view of Morocco. However, I felt that the day in Fes was a bit rushed and that we were just taken to different places and exploited for our money. We were taken to several different shops and learned a lot about the different products they sell in the markets, but ultimately felt like the group was being herded around to spend money at overpriced shops that the tour guides had prior agreements with. In one instance, Ali G had mentioned that some scarf shops sell cheap scarves that run color when wet. He, of course, ditched us during the day in Fes and the local tour guide took us to one of these shops that sell "cheap scarves" and each paid between 100-200 moroccan dollars for each because that was the "lowest price" and we were rushed to get to the next destination. As soon as Ali sees us with the scarves, the first thing he does is put water on one and sees it run where he makes a comment about how they're cheap and makes us feel stupid.

    The day in Fes could've been planned out better where we could've been given more time to look on our own without feeling like we were being herded around to spend money.
