We had a very short time in Marrakech and Mike Korn designed a perfect itinerary for it. The hotel, La Maison Arabe, was superb, our guide and driver were very helpful & charming and overall I would highly recommend him.
My husband and I just returned from Morocco. The trip ( Oct. 13-26, 2017) planned by Mike Korn and Isabel Silva, was one of the best we have ever had (and we travel a lot!). No detail was overlooked, and it went as smooth as silk. Their itinerary took us from the medinas and souks of Fes and Marrakech to a desert encampment in the dunes of Znigui to Essaouira on the coast where camels shared the broad beach with surfers. The lodgings they picked for us were just as varied. They included unique boutique hotels, a luxury tent, a lovely, small intimate lodge and an eco-friendly resort. Everyone was special. Of course, at the end of the day, the key to any trip is the guide, and that is why we always try to travel with a specialist on Wendy’s list. They are known to be the best in the business in the countries they work in, so they can get the best guides. In this case, we won the lottery. Our guide was easily one of our top two favorites ever. He has been leading trips for over twenty years, but still clearly retains a love for his chosen career. He happily shared his knowledge rather than lecturing, was attentive, super competent, and most important to us, easy to talk to and be around. Our driver was similarly personable. Our advice to anyone considering hiring Mike Korn? Go for it!
My travel specialists, Mike Korn and Isabel Silva, were both terrific. Our trip to Morocco was planned around my family’s unique desires and every aspect of it was top notch. We were guided from the moment we landed at the airport but never smothered. We were lovingly and smartly shown around the country. Our hotels were the best we ever stayed at.
Everything on this trip was seamless… from pick up at the port in Agadir to drop off in Casablanca to all the experiences in between… Our guide, Hussan could not have been better… seemed like everyone knew him… His knowledge and ability to share his culture was extraordinary… and our driver Mohammad navigated the streets of Marrakesh effortlessly. One of our most memorable experiences was our trip to the desert where we had a 5-star dinner, enjoyed being in this landscape and where two of the four of us rode camels. I also enjoyed bartering with a Berber shop owner for a piece of jewelry… It was respectful, calm and fun… Hassan asked if I had Berber blood after the negotiation was consummated. Recommendations on places to visit, where to stay and where to eat were all spot on.
Morocco – Fez, The Desert and Marrakech 9 nights/10 days 05/2017 We were overwhelmed by the meticulous planning, professional service, guide, and driver. The pacing of the itinerary was perfect. The accommodations were over the top. The time savings of having a car, driver, and guide at your disposal to steer you through the maze is priceless. The ability to have the guide provide dining options and then make the reservations and provide transportation to and from avoids all kinds of logistical nightmares for even the seasoned traveler.
The VIP service upon arrival at the airport and departure airport is worth the price of admission.
They will plan my next trip to Morocco and, if this is the level of service provided by all of Wendys “Wow” agents, count me in.
Mike and his team did an amazing job planning a custom itinerary that kept our three very young children involved while allowing the adults to have a great time as well. We would not have made it through a week in Morocco without the exceptional experiences they provided for the kids. Job well done!
