What our guests say

We want all our guests to have an amazing time in Morocco.  

Here's what some of our previous guests have said.

"the journey of a lifetime"

I recently embarked on the journey of a lifetime with one of Heather's Moroccan Escapes small group tours.

 

From the vibrant markets of Marrakech to the incredible Sahara Desert, every moment was filled with wonder and excitement. Heather and her knowledgeable guides ensured I truly immersed myself in the rich culture and history of Morocco. 

 

I experienced the warmth of Moroccan hospitality as we stayed in stunning riads and tasted delicious local cuisine. I thoroughly enjoyed cooking classes, mosaic workshops, art galleries and visiting Berber nomads. The diverse landscapes, from lush valleys to breathtaking mountains, left me in awe. 

 

With a perfect balance of adventure and relaxation, this tour offered a truly unforgettable experience that has created memories for me to last a lifetime!"

"ten out of ten"

I recently returned from a small-group tour of Morocco organised by Heather McNeice of  Moroccan Escapes. It's a country I have always been keen to visit and we covered everything I imagined and more. I had looked into a planning this myself, and it was quite complicated and daunting, especially with the barriers of language and distance. Heather's practical knowledge and local contacts along with her affiliations with the management of the most gorgeous riads and reliable drivers made this trip one of my all-time favourites. Our itinerary included Casablanca, Tangier, Chechaouen, Fes, Ait Ben Haddou, Essaouira and Marrakech as well as a spectacular 2-night stay in a luxury camp in the Sahara Desert. We felt at ease with our driver, Stefan, who was very informative and made us feel extremely safe on the Moroccan roads. Ten out of ten from me.

surpassed all my expectations

I was lucky enough to travel to Morocco in March 2023 with Heather on a trekking trip in the Sahara Desert and Atlas Mountains. The trip was amazing and surpassed all my expectations.  Heather’s detailed research and organisation ensured a seamless itinerary for an off the beaten track adventure.  Mohamed was the perfect local guide, whose affable personality and knowledge of the desert and mountains meant we were in very good hands. Mohamad is passionate and proud of his country. 

 

I highly recommend Heather as a travel guide or organiser for your Moroccan trip – her love of the country is evident and her positive, enthusiastic and thoroughly researched approach to her trips ensures that the people she chooses to work with are of a high calibre. One trip won’t be enough!

authentic travel experience

I have travelled to many destinations on trips organised by Heather, including the USA, the UK, Bhutan, Mongolia and closer to home in Australia but my three week trip to Morocco was a highlight. The itinerary was carefully planned to give the group an authentic travel experience with a wide variety of activities, from camel riding in the Sahara to a street food tour in Marrakech. We stayed in beautiful riads where we received attentive and personal service and where we had some of the best meals of the trip.  Our driver, Stefan was accommodating, cheerful and professional and our trek guide, Mohamed and his crew, in both the Sahara and Atlas Mountains, made our trekking experience unforgettable.

 

Heather’s attention to detail ensures that her trips run smoothly from start to finish. I am joining Heather again in Morocco next May for more Atlas Mountains trekking.  If you have a chance to travel to Morocco with Heather, just do it!

an unforgettable adventure

I can't say enough positive things about my Moroccan travel experience with Heather.  From the moment we arrived in Marrakech, to experiencing the breathtaking Erg Chigaga in a luxury desert camp and the enchanting blue city of Chefchaouen, Heather's expertise and attention to detail were remarkable. Heather's meticulous planning created an immersive cultural experience and an unforgettable adventure for our group of eight ladies.

 

Heather organised our group's transportation with incredible local driver, Stefan. His dedication and personalised service made us feel like a top priority throughout our journey.

Lisa in Fes

Heather arranged a fantastic itinerary visiting the blue city Chefchaouen, the Roman ruins at Volubilis and the holy city of Moulay Idriss. Fes was incredible and  staying in Todra Gorge was a highlight, especially a half-day hike where we met and had tea with a nomadic Berber family.  Another highlight was glamping in the Sahara desert, where the sunsets were stunning and the food and accommodation was luxury. Heather booked us into wonderful accommodation throughout the trip, ranging from beautiful riads to some unique cave rooms, built into the mountainside, in Todra Gorge. In Fes, Heather arranged a private photography tour for two of us with a local photographer, Omar, which was fantastic. We visited places in the medina only a local would know such as an abandoned palace and incredible rooftop views.

I would not hesitate to recommend Heather - she will organise a great holiday for you that is well thought through, safe and affordable.

Mim in Fes

an incredible itinerary

In February 2023 I spent two weeks in Morocco on a tour organised and accompanied by Heather, visiting amazing and diverse places, starting in Casablanca and ending in Marrakech. We travelled by car and were well cared for by our driver, Stefan, who was informative and entertaining.

a fantastic experience

Travelling around Morocco earlier this year on a tour organised by Heather was a fantastic experience.  I would highly recommend Heather who put together an amazing itinerary with a variety of places and experiences, with everything Morocco has to offer: food, culture and stunning landscapes, and all at a very affordable price.

 

Stefan, our driver, was excellent and professional, whilst still being able to have fun and make us feel at ease.

"impeccable attention to detail"

Heather's impeccable attention to detail made my trips to Morocco and India this year exceptional. Logistically they went without a hiccup. Travelling in a group was extremely easy, with Heather facilitating every aspect and catering for all interests, from sightseeing to dining, hiking, shopping and much more. Heather is extremely well travelled and this is very evident and incorporated into her meticulous trip planning. Local contacts in both countries provided exceptional customer service and professionalism. Our drivers were excellent and guides were very knowledgeable and accommodating. Thank you Heather for two amazing trips. I'm looking forward to my next adventure!

"unique and fabulous"

I have had the opportunity to join Heather on a number of travel adventures, including to Morocco. Each one has been unique and fabulous. Heather's passion is obvious in her meticulous planning and focus on detail. Her itineraries are interesting, thorough, action-packed and exciting.  She goes above and beyond and her travel experience proves invaluable.  She is excited, responsive and very clear in all communications.

I feel privileged to have travelled to some bucket list destinations with Heather and I am looking forward to my next adventure with her. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Heather.
