Peggy was amazing. She planned our honeymoon through Morocco in May 2012 via Morocco Custom Travel (sorry I'm late to write this!). We couldn't have asked for a better trip to celebrate our life together.
Riad Amirat Al Jamal:
The Riad was clean, beautifully furnished and safe. The staff, including Hamidou and Sayyid were incredibly hospitable. We were happy to have fresh fruit and veggies, which were washed appropriately - as we had avoided them for the rest of the trip to be cautious. A special tagine was made for us, which was a treat. The location was perfect walking distance to the main square.
This location was the last of a long honeymoon throughout the region. We were lucky that Peggy was there. She is a wealth of knowledge about both the country and culture. She was able to answer so many questions we had accumulated along the trip.
Morocco Custom Travel:
Peggy worked with my husband to plan an adventurous 10 day trip throughout Morocco. While she usually caters to higher-priced vacations, she was more than happy to help us with our honeymoon. She even worked a few deals to get us into really nice riads. She went out of her way to make us feel special. Our trip was led by Hussein, who was incredibly polite and professional. He spoke English, Arabic, French and 2 of the 3 Berber dialects. I believe he was also studying Spanish. Mustafa was our driver. Though he did not speak English, he was incredibly nice and a more than capable driver (especially in the race-track style roads of the Atlas mountains). We traveled to Casablanca, Rabat (where we stayed in an orange grove), Fez, Marrakesh and day trips to Ifrane, Meknes, Essaouira and Volubilis. We road camels into the desert, where we watched the sunrise. After, we had mint tea with a nomadic woman.
MCT and Peggy Ward offered us a view into Morocco we could have never obtained by ourselves. Thank you!
