 1  Kendall Blue November 2007 Customized Tour
simply cannot convey in words how amazing the trip was...everyone we met - whether through JBT or not - was the epitome of friendliness. I have raved to my friends about Morocco in general and Journey Beyond Travel in particular. Thank you so much for customizing our tour, adapting it as we went, being so ... view more responsive to our questions, and truly showing us the real Morocco.

 2  Diana & David Butler October 2007 Customized Private Tour
We loved our behind-the-scenes, off-the-beaten-path adventure in Morocco! With Journey Beyond Travel's personal connections, we felt more like welcomed visitors than "tourists".

 3  Erin Miller September 2007 Ecclectic Tour
The Riads in Fez and Marrakech were amazing. Journey Beyond Travel did a great job of arranging accommodations, restaurants, tours, and giving shopping advice. I would highly recommend them to make all your accommodation arrangements. Next time I go to Morocco, I’m going to bring four empty suitcases and just buy stuff!

 4  Victoria Macum-Howard October 2008 Undiscovered Tour
Oh My God!! What can a Girl say about the hospitality and the awesomeness of Morocco? That it's the [bomb!]? That it's pretty darn cool? Literally, everywhere we went there was an adventure - would you like to try and eat sheep's head? Sure, no problem. Want a snake coiled around your neck? We can ... view more do that too. Like this rug here? We can wrap this up after we drink a little tea. Journey Beyond Travel takes immense pride in being able to show you the "real Morocco" - the one you can smell, taste, touch. And proud they should be - I felt safe and secure at all times, never was a time when I wondered where I was or what I was doing. I strongly urge anyone to take the short plane ride (just 7 hours from New York City) and immerse yourself into a fascinating and beautiful place.

 5  John Iaquinto Winter Toubkal Ascent December 2007
From my arrival at my hotel in Marrakech until my return I couldn't have had a better experience - all credit going to Journey Beyond Travel and their amazing staff...My personal guide was amazing...The High Atlas Mountains Trek from Imlil to Base camp was gorgeous...The summit of Mount Toubkal was all I ... view more could have hoped for and more. I will not hesitate recommending JBT to friends!

 6  Julie LeSeure Brilliant Trip!
The Tour Leader was fantastic. Camel rides, stays in villages, the gorges, Marrakesh, & Essaouira, a million breathtaking scenes!


 7  Bobbie Slonevsky A Memorable Adventure!

 8  Rajesh Shetty Great Family Getaway!
