Michael Diamond

Morocco

Thanks to 16 years’ experience planning trips to Morocco, Michael designs seamless itineraries utilizing the savviest logistics and most atmospheric luxury riads. What really sets him apart, though, are the connections that he and his Marrakech-based business partner have in the country’s famed design world: Whether it’s leather goods, hand-woven textiles, or traditional tiles you’re hankering for, they’ll steer you to the hidden ateliers where you’ll find the highest-quality products at the lowest prices. They can even ship your purchases home at a steep discount, avoiding the usual paperwork. Michael’s on-the-ground team is quick to respond and rectify, should anything go awry (as so often happens in Morocco). He encourages travelers to slow down to match the pace of local life, whether by lingering over a late-afternoon mint tea in Gueliz, or staying up late around the fire at your Sahara encampment while the African stars dazzle above you. As for foodie experiences, he can arrange anything from casual cooking workshops to multi-day dives into the culinary history of Fes.
