My wish is to make you live your best trip. This is why all my choices of meetings, discoveries or accommodation are guided by this desire to transmit to you, through the Original Travels circuits, all the authenticity that a country can offer.
During my stays, I take the time, in each city, to visit hotels, lodges, and homestays. I only select those who have a particular soul, those who combine comfort and authenticity. In the desire to offer responsible tourism, I always favor small structures on a human scale to large hotel complexes.
In addition to the essentials, I would like you to discover preserved places, little known to foreigners. During my reconnaissance trips, I take the time to visit places off the beaten track to give you a different experience. The locals will welcome you as friends and will be happy to interact with visitors from around the world.

We had a delightful week with Original Travels in Morocco. Recommendations from Said and Abdellah were spot on and we got the most out of our time there! read more
Fantastic experience with Mohammed and Original Travel
Feb 19 - Feb 26, 2023
We had an exceptional time in Morocco with our new friend Mohammed, our driver guide from Original Travel. He was very friendly, helpful, and informative - and my wife and I both feel as if we gained a new friend! I cannot recommend him highly enough as someone to take you on a remarkable journey through a beautiful country. To see Fes, the Sahara, Ait Ben Haddou, and Marrakech in 7 days is no small feat, and I don't think it would have been possible without the great attention to detail,... read more

Absolutely fantastic trip! We loved our experience visiting the northern parts of Morocco and the imperial cities. Every place we visited was incredible--Chefchaouen, Volubilis, Meknes, Fes, Rabat, Casablanca, and Marrakech. Our driver Abdellatif was very friendly and accommodating to our requests. He provided us with a lot of information about Morocco and its people and culture while we drove. We also had two outstanding guides showing us around Fes (Abdullah, nickname "Banana") and... read more
Morocco Vacation, Dec 2022 - Jan 2023.

Our entire Morocco trip was world class in every way. The schedule was well prepared and the guides and the driver chosen for this trip were excellent. The hotels that were chosen for the trip were outstanding with the best customer service that we could get anywhere in the world.
There were only couple of small hiccups with the hotel reservation in Casablanca and the garden tickets in Marrakech but they were resolved very quickly. The guides chosen for the different visits in different... read more
Morocco - An experience for a life time
Dec 18 - Dec 31, 2022
Morocco was in our bucket list for quite sometime and we decided to take a trip on Dec 2023. We got really busy with our work and family didn't had much time to do the research.
I stumbled upon KimKim during a quick search about Morocco. My criteria was to go with a locally owned company and I noticed Abdellah's Origin Travels. Given rave reviews, I decided to given him a call. I am so glad I did.
His itinerary was fool proof, chose best experiences, hotels and he even considered... read more

3 generations of travelers, 8 days in Morocco
Dec 12 - Dec 18, 2022
We spent 8 days in Morocco and left with enough reasons to return over and over again. The country and its people have so much to offer - regardless of your interests. We travelled as a family of 3 generations and everyone delighted in each and every day. Ilyas (our driver) definitely takes care to maintain relationships throughout the country which had the additional benefit of opening doors to conversations and opportunities throughout our visit (and his driving was great, too).

7 day Morroco road trip
Dec 26 - Jan 1, 2023
Abdellah and Said were very helpful. They would respond quickly when we have a question or concern. The guide in Fez, Hindi, was quite good and we enjoyed his tour.
All the sights were beautiful. Morrocco is a beautiful country. The dessert in Merzouga was memorable but too long to get to.
The tour itself was very tiring being on the road for so long. On hindsight, I should have just stayed in Marrakesh and Fez and do day tours rather that a 7 day road trip.
I believe there’s an option for this., which I should have taken instead.

We are a family of 4, and we were privileged to have recently traveled through Morocco for 1 week.
Abdellah had customized tour for the 4 of us as we had limited time and yet wanted to get the whole experience, we had, throughout the period, the company of our guide and driver Karim, who, in addition to giving us an exceptional service, made us feel at home in his country, transmitting a lot of knowledge about the route traced and about the history of Morocco as a whole to modern day living... read more

Amazing trip in Morocco
Nov 28 - Dec 6, 2022
We had an amazing trip in Morocco. Many thanks to Abdel for his detailed itinerary plan and recommendations on many things such as transportation and restaurants. His reply was always prompt. The booking manager Said was very helpful as well. We suppose to have mountain hiking in Imlil Valley, however when he learnt that I had a knee problem, Said changed the trip to mule riding instead for us, which is also fun and memorable. And when our flight from Fes to Marrakech was rescheduled to a... read more
The Moroccan Grand Tour
Oct 16 - Oct 28, 2022
I’d wanted to visit the beautiful country of Morocco 🇲🇦 for years, so I decided to work with KimKim to plan and book my trip. I normally plan and book all my trips on my own, but since I wasn’t too familiar with the country (or the languages), and after doing extensive research on tour companies, I chose KimKim to plan my tour.
I was very pleased with how the planning of the tour went, thanks to Said, the booking manager. They made the planning process very easy, and even though it was... read more

The desert camp experience is not to be missed! Karim is very experienced, warm, friendly, professional and an expert... read more

Our trip to Morocco was amazing from beginning to end. Our driver/guide, Karim, was fantastic -- knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating, funny. We felt so lucky to have had him as our guide. He seemed to know someone at every stop, which meant that our trip was smooth sailing.

Sep 30 - Oct 7, 2022
Our trip was very busy but so interesting.
We felt taken care of by our local guides and driver. The days flew by and the vast distances we covered were appreciated.
Just a few points:
- several seatbelts did not work in the van.
- one tour guide did spend a bit too much time taking our group to his market sellers who presented a tough sell for their product. It made for a long tour day - mentally. A bit more free time in the market would have been nice.
- having a printed... read more
A Week in Morocco

A week is not enough… Said did an excellent job with my request to see Marrakech, the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara. As a last minute change I requested a night in Essaouira and he readily accommodated.
Our tour guide for Marrakech was Abdul, the food tour was amazing. I’m so glad we did it.
And finally, our driver Faysel was outstanding. Most importantly, he is an excellent driver, we always felt safe driving with him. In addition, he was kind, fun and knew wonderful spots for... read more

Magical family trip to Morocco!

We had a magical trip to Morocco thanks to KimKim and our amazing driver and local guides!
We traveled with three kids (ages 4-9), my mother-in-law and two parents (my husband and me). We started in Marrakesh, went to Boalne Dades, Merzouga/the desert, Fes and then Casablanca as our flight departed from there.
The desert and Camp Tiziri was a lifetime favorite memory, but the entire trip was amazing. Our driver Samir was so kind and went out of his way to make us comfortable. Our... read more

Sep 30 - Oct 7, 2022
The local company, Original tours, was quick to reply with any questions, requests or issues along the way. Our driver drove us safely but we would suggest that the vans have working seat belts for passengers. Accommodations were good except for the Kasbah in Bonaire Dades. It was a little lower in standard of both rooms and food. Overall a good experience. It was our choice to cover a lot of territory so the days were long but we got to see and do a lot!! read more
