Letter from our Founder

“Spirit of place! It is for this we travel, to surprise its subtlety; and where it is a strong and dominant angel, that place, seen once, abides entire in the memory with all its own accidents, its habits, its breath, its name.”
– Alice Meynell

Clients and Friends:

Twenty eight years ago, we started Marrakesh Voyage to help people unlock the spirit of the ancient kingdom of Morocco, my first home and great passion.

I believe that in doing so, we have not only delighted our clients, but built bridges of cultural understanding and helped facilitate lasting relationships.

The greatest reward of this work has always been the reaction of first-time visitors. For as good as they are, guidebooks and travelogues cannot prepare you for the first-hand experience of losing oneself in the Marrakesh medina, or seeing Erg Chebbi, the first great dune of the Sahara, for the first time. (You’ll see what I mean, insh’allah.) To be able to give this experience to people has itself been a great blessing.

As with any passion, our approach is intimate: we work closely with you, learning about your style, interests and temperament, to craft a perfectly tailored experience. And even those tours we prearrange are designed with the total experience, and the total person, in mind.

That’s why you’ll see us offer events and experiences that are totally unique – because we’re creating them ourselves. Our staff, in both Morocco and the U.S., gives us unmatched capabilities in this regard.

We can’t make the sun shine, or the rain fall, but we can promise to do everything in our power to ensure an unforgettable and exceptional visit to Morocco. I hope you’ll join us.

Sincerely,
Akim Elanbassi
