The April trip to Morocco will be guided by Mohamed Amrabt, apparently a different guide than the Mohamed for whom several reviews have been written.  Has anyone traveled with this Mohamed?  Thanks.

We had the fantastic good fortune of having Mohamed Ambrat as our tour director on our OAT  Morocco tour a few years ago.  We have done 19 trips with GCT/OAT over the last 13 years.  Mohamed is one of only 2 or 3 OUTSTANDING tour directors we have had.   I would rate most of our TDs only between VG and EX., with some even falling below that.

The man is well educated, knowledgeable, and has a wonderful sense of humor and a twinkle in his eye.  And I found him extemely likeable, which I seldom say about anyone.  Indeed, by the end of the trip I really liked him as a person as well as a TD.  I believe the other travelers felt the same about him by the end of the trip.  Our Morocco group had the most comraderie that I have ever experienced on a tour.  I lay much of the credit for this esprit de corp to the atmosphere created by Mohammed.

Nearly everyone came down with some digestive problems at sometime during the tour, which apparently common for the travelers in that country.  Mohamed was very helpful in recommending and obtaining for us the meds (everything is available OTC in Morocco) that helped us get better fast.  He really took care of us!

I have tried to contact him since the trip but the email address I have for him has never worked.  When you return it would be nice if you could send me his email address.
