Traveling, to me, is all about connecting with people and this trip accomplished that. You do not get a cookie cutter trip from WanderTours; rather, you get a truly personal experience and one that I will always remember. Thank you, Beth, for organizing such a wonderful tour with such a wonderful group of traveling companions! Marian M.
I recommend WanderTours because Beth is very detail oriented and thorough, yet easy going. I would follow her anywhere! This was an awesome trip all the way around. It exceeded my expectations. Denise K.
I loved the juxtaposition of doing activities with locals and then experiencing the hustle of shopping and sight seeing. These trips are unique because you get to do unusual activities off of the beaten path but still see the famous sites you’ve heard of. I also love that we were not a “cozy” group of 40 following an orange flag! Barb D.
The food was tasty, healthy and bountiful. Our driver, Mohammed, was excellent and was always very courteous and kind. He took his job very seriously and had a great attitude. Our guide Fatimzahra was a pleasure to be with. She truly cared about us and our wants and needs, loves what she is doing and puts her all into it. The tour was so well-organized and executed. The accommodations and food were great. The whole Sahara experience was a thrill. The beauty of this country, the friendliness of the people, the architecture and the architectural detail, the tile and other craftworks we saw – the trip was one giant sensory feast! Suzanne W.
I wouldn’t hesitate to go on another tour extraordinaire with Beth Whitman. She helped make every day fun and interesting. Her concern for our comfort and safety was apparent, and the experiences that she planned for us were unforgettable! I don’t think I could’ve had a better time in Morocco than the one I had with our group of fellow world travelers. Julie M.
From sign-up to follow-up, the trip was very well organized. The experiences were hand-picked, the hotels were 5-star, more food than anyone could eat was included, and there was no stress about tipping. The driver and guides were excellent, and I always felt safe. Although you can’t pick the group, based on my India experience, Beth seems to attract like-minded people, so I felt comfortable investing in this tour. In addition, I appreciate that part of our tour cost goes to organizations that support women in learning skills to be independent. I like Beth’s encouragement to avoid using bottled water. I also trust her to vet the experiences in advance – like how the camels are treated. I tell everyone about these aspects. I think Beth’s tours fit into the “priceless” category. (For everything else there’s MasterCard, as the ad goes.) Margaret W.
I enjoyed meeting and talking to people from all walks of life. I liked the size of the tour and activities I don’t believe would happen with any other tour group. Best trip of my life (so far!). Lynn R.
This tour was a nice mix of tourism, history and culture. A terrific guide in Fati who went above and beyond on several occasions. All the details were handled very efficiently, the itinerary was comprehensive and very interesting. Being part of a very interesting group of women, the night in the desert and dancing with the two women at the Nzala cooperative were highlights. More than on any other tour, we felt we came away with a little understanding of what it is like to be Moroccan. Susan T. & Barbara T.
The planning was amazing. It saved me time and packed many experiences I would not have gotten. The participants were very nice, interesting, inspiring. The variety of experiences and planning to make that happen is not something I could do myself. Julie E.
The wide variety of experiences and opportunities to explore the cultures of Morocco are the reason I choose this trip. The emphasis on cultural exploration and connection from the local point of view rather than just seeing the sites made this trip so successful and so much more meaningful for me. The trip was very well planned and managed. Experiences were varied, based on learning about the people and cultures of Morocco rather than “how many tourist sites can we see.” The small group and good leadership quickly created a community within our group. The flexibility and positive attitude (fostered by good leadership) among this group of travelers made the trip a joy. Beth’s compassionate and caring leadership are exceptional. Excellent value for the money. Carol S.
Well, first of all, Beth is awesome! Second, we saw and experienced so many different things and saw so much of the country. Fatimzahara!!! She (guide) was amazing and went well above and beyond. The quality of transport, hotels, food was worth every penny! I loved getting the connection with locals (being invited into their homes). Theresa P.
I haven’t experienced a WanderTour that I didn’t love! The beautiful country and its residents, variety of activities, an awesome guide and equally awesome tour leader and the fabulous group of fellow travelers all worked particularly well on this trip. Joanne M.
The planning was done seamlessly and the itinerary was wonderful. It was worth it – it was such a fluid experience! The “all women experience” has a different vibe and dynamic energy. I have told those that have asked how great the tour was. Diana D.
This is not a cookie cutter trip, especially since personalized so much by Fati (guide). As I’ve said so many times before, Beth has a sensibility about being in a place that I thoroughly enjoy and value. Nancy R.
