Perfect from the start

By: Betsy


Reviewed on: 11 Mar 2014

From the time we got off the plane, and were ushered through customs, until the minute we were escorted back on the way home, each part of our Moroccan experience was perfect!  The driver and guide were professional and attuned to our needs and wants throughout the 10 days.All the hotels (except one) far exceeded our expectations. (The one hotel was experiencing a sewer issue-not our travel agency fault)The restaurant recommendations were all wonderful!Overall an amazing trip!  Memories of a lifetime!

Very helpful, created a great trip for us

Jane put together a great trip for us and made everything fantastic.  From helping us create out itinerary, to adjusting based on our feedback, to getting us great places to see and stay, and to just making it VERY EASY and VERY RELAXING for us.    Everything was great.   Really enjoyed all the places we saw and the places we stayed.   Lisbon and Barcelona were our favorites for places to visit.  Morocco was a great mix of 3 different place with Marrakesh, then the mountains, and then the ocean.   And quite frankly we were very spoiled being picked up every where and transported to hotels and on tours.   Couldn’t have been any easier.  Thanks for putting this all together and making it such a great experience and great memories for us.

Great way to travel

We had never travelled with a guide or driver before, preferring to be a bit more spontaneous. We loved both our guide and our driver from Heritage-- we learned SOO much; easily went in and out of places that we either wouldn't have found, or known of, or been able to handle logistically (ie parking). It was fun to spend time with both driver and guide; we enjoyed their company, and they could not have been more accommodating when we wanted to skip something, add on, etc. We also loved the accommodations booked thru Heritage- all quite comfortable, clean, and with plenty of character. We will certainly consider Heritage for another trip in the future.

Heritage made sure the details -- big and small -- were handled thoughtfully. Our guides and driver made the 25th anniversary vacation to Morocco very special. Michael Diamond, Amine and Alae, and all their co-workers are amazing. It was a major travel event for us and Heritage made sure it would be trouble free, fun and educational,

Good whole day private tour of Lisbon with good guides and a fun itinerary including motorcycle side-car ride and foodie tour. Did not get to private castle we were supposed to see, however.

Definitely would use Heritage Tours again. Guides were knowledgeable, organized and fun! The itinerary they suggested was perfect. Hotels were unique and comfortable with great locations. Wonderful to take a vacation where all logistics were arranged. Can't wait to see Morocco with them next!

A good way to see Spain

By: Pistoleros


Reviewed on: 07 Nov 2016

We had very good local guides in a number of cities. The itinerary called for us to walk or drive around much of the northeast of the country. We wanted to see architecture and sample the restaurants. We especially enjoyed the Basque country, where it helps immensely to have a native educate you about the area. During the week, we needed to make a slight adjustment to one of the planned excursions. Heritage did it readily. We would happily work with Heritage again.

Morocco

By: Ingrid


Reviewed on: 12 Jul 2017

In a word - wonderful! Our private guide, Driss, and driver Zayd, made our first Moroccan experience over and above what we expected. I was a bit skeptical about being in a car with two strangers for ten days because there is a lot of driving if you want to really see the country. However, any doubts were erased immediately as we all fell in a comfortable, relaxed relationship. They both provided incredible insight and knowledge while maintaining the right balance of fun and adventure. One of the best things about Heritage Tours is their flexibility and Driss and Zayd were more then willing to alter our schedule when we wanted and suggested new things based on what they learned about us. Driss also knows all the best local places to shop and eat! Originally we planned the trip thinking we would only be going to Morocco once but now we're looking forward to returning and will absolutely use Heritage, Driss and Zayd again.

Good guides and knowledgable driver

Reviewed on: 04 Sep 2017

Very friendly guide with vast knowledge of the local history. He was a little hard of hearing and we had to repeat our questions a lot. They screwed up our VIP treatment at the airport and left one of the passengers off the list so we had to wait a long time to get through airport security. We probably could have done it faster the regular way and wasted our money.

Sensory overload in Morocco

Our travel agent linked us up with Heritage for our trip to Morocco. We utilized their tour guide (Saeed) and driver (Moncef). Both were incredible men; professional, knowledgeable and experts in their trade. The itinerary Heritage put together was absolutely amazing. Jaw-dropping hotels, great restaurant recommendations and one of a kind experiences while we were in Morocco. We've traveled to all 7 continents and this trip was one of the best we've had.

Excellent! Accommodations were wonderful and all details were handled and the trip was very smooth. Only detail we didn’t enjoy was the restaurant choice the last evening before our long journey home. A quieter, more relaxing atmosphere would have been more enjoyed.

We found a little paradise in Morocco

By: Jacqui


Reviewed on: 06 Mar 2018

Heritage tours did a wonderful job arranging tour guides for us in Marrakech, a trip to the Sahara via Dar Ahlam and a coupe of days of relaxation at Kasbah Tamadot in the high Atlas Mountains. In our 8 day trip there, we fell in love with Morocco in large part because of the care taken arranging this trip. In addition to amazing tour guides, Heritage is there for you the entire time. They provide a cell phone when you arrive, which has the numbers of the guides, drivers and main office programmed in. Our guide made it clear from the first day, that he was available to us whenever we needed him. The trip to the dessert was phenomenal, and we would never have been able to plan it on our own. When we embarked on this journey, we thought this would probably be our only trip to Morocco. By the time we left, we were already talking about when we could return. When we do, we will be sure to make our plans with Heritage!

Fabulous Tour Guides

By: Christine


Reviewed on: 17 Apr 2018

We have used Heritage tours on several occasions and each time have been thoroughly impressed with our guides. They are full of wonderful information from fun facts to historical details. They are flexible - working with you to create time that is of interest to you. We also love that they take you to places that are not alway touristy so you can really see the cities or places from a local perspective. We would HIGHLY recommend Heritage Tours.
