Mysterious Morocco and Marvelous Marseille…Together Oct 2019

Greetings Travelers,

So many have been inquiring about Morocco these past years.  I haven’t been back since 1992 so I guess it’s about that  time. Before I get started I must say, those that wanted Vietnam again; it’s about maxed out. Last night when I closed my eyes, I was thinking gee, what happened to all those that had expressed an interest in Vietnam but when I opened my eyes this morning up popped 5 more.  That being said, Kat’s Tailor Made Vietnam will be in full effect April 2019.

Marseille is so lovely and  we had such a wonderful time, I will return with 5 nights there and 4 nights in Morocco.  I know you must have questions so I will give you a heads up. The weather in October in Marseille should be 60s-70’s, 6 hrs of sunshine, some rain but so what it rained last week, nothing major though.  Marrakech in the 80’s with 8 hrs of sunshine.  Marseille is just a mere 2+ hrs flight from Marrakech who has a lovely new airport terminal.  Morocco; such a mystery surrounds it.

What kind of accommodations in Marrakech? Riad or Hotel?  I haven’t quite decided.  There is a lovely black owned property but I’m not really feeling it. I’d rather be closer to the town center.

Here are some terms to become familiar with.  You know there will be so much more  that I will share with those that join me.  The tour size will be limited to 16.  There are already 7 on board. Remember, you snooze, you lose.

Riad – The house must have a garden, divided into quarters.

Kasbah – Several structures behind a defensive wall, was a place for the local leader to live and a defense when a city was under attack.

Medina – Old part of a town. Typically walled, contains narrow streets, fountains, palaces and mosques.

Interested parties, let me hear from you. Space is limited.  On this one; by the time rates are announced, we will more than likely be sold out.

Until next time,

  1. Hi Kat,

    As I said earlier, count me in. After my glowing report about Marseille, Barbara Whitener expressed an interest in any future Marseille trip. So, I just need a minute to see if she’s in for this trip, but I’m committing for myself either way. Will get back to you as to whether Barbara will be my roommate or whether I’m requesting pairing up with someone else.

  2. Hi Kat,

    I see that this trip has sold out. That’s what I get for thinking about it😊! Anyway, could you put me on your waiting list. And, I’ll take a single room if you get one. In the meantime, I’ll see if Cherri might want to go.

    Thanks and enjoy your summer!

  3. Hi Kat,
    I would love to be part of the group for the Morocco & Marseille October 2019 trip.
    I will try and find a roommate, but if you hear about someone needing a roommate please let me know.

  4. Okay, Kat – I cannot remember the cost of this trip. Can you let me know again?

    Also, How can we add Casablanca?

    I see we can take a train from Casablanca or hire a driver. Maybe we could hit Fez along the way

    Let me know
